That was a tough case. It was a multimillion-dollar embezzlement scam.
All right, I'll give that to you, but all you got to do is follow the money. Look, I'll show you. Do you have a quarter?
Will I get it back?
Depends. If it disappears, can you find it?
What are you, a party clown?
I'm embezzling your quarter. There's a crime in progress. Solve it.
It's in your right pant pocket. You didn't make the switch with your right hand. Case closed.
How'd you know?
Because I kept my eye on the quarter.
See? All you got to do is follow the money.
You're brilliant. But we've got a new case. Neal. Thank you.
Since when do we handle murders?
Since it's linked to corporate espionage. The victim worked for novice systems.
Yeah, they manufacture everything from cellphones to supercomputers. Meet Joseph Hayes. He was novice's lead R&D specialist. Dropped dead of a heart attack.
What was he carrying?
A next-gen quantum microprocessor. Anybody know what that is?
Sure. It's a very small...
Tool.Tool for binary code-breaking.
Novice was vying for a defense contract with several competitors. According to their P.R., Hayes had a functioning prototype, which put them in the lead of that competition.

How do we know he was murdered?
Toxicology report says there was digitalis in his bloodstream.

Somebody killed him and stole the prototype.
Wesley Kent, founder and C.E.O. He's pointing fingers at his competitors, but according to NYPD, he had an after-hours meeting on his calendar with Hayes the night that he died. His initial statement contradicted the timeline from the coroner's report.

In other words, Kent's hiding something.
Looks like it.
That's why I'm sending someone in undercover to the company.
I know a bit about corporate culture, so...
Sit down. Novice has its annual audit scheduled for the beginning of next week. It's a perfect opportunity for us to get the access we haven't been allowed. Kent is expecting an accountant from Banefield financial to show up at his offices.
Well, if I'm not going in, who is?
Peter Lassen, CPA, at your service.
Thought you joined the FBI to avoid number crunching. Glad your accounting degree hasn't gone to waste.

I was recruited by several fortune 500 companies. Single or double Windsor?

In some alternate universe, you'd be wearing power ties, doing power lunches, flying corporate jets.

Doubt we'd have ever met.
Well, maybe. Under different circumstances.
Well, that's true. You might have robbed the company.
Yep. You could have had a mansion.
I like my house.
Horses. A stable in the Hamptons.
I've got a dog.
No regrets, huh?
No. I've got the bureau. I've got Elizabeth. No. No regrets.
Banefield putting you up?

Yeah, company booked me in a suite at a four-star hotel.
Yeah. Almost as impressive as your getting Kate's flight-recorder data. That's right. Sara told me.Neal, if you're working on this, so am I.
I'm not working on anything.
Which means Mozzie's working on it. I want somebody from my team involved.
Peter, he does not...
No protests. We are working on this together.
All right, who'd you have in mind?
What? She'll eat him alive.
Well, he's not much of a meal. I want you to arrange a meeting.
Are you sure this...
Go. I look good.
Can I see your bag, please?
The basket is for your phone. I'm Ellen Samuel, Mr.Kent's personal assistant. Sorry for the security, but we can't risk our visitors leaving with any sensitive information.
You can pick up your phone and your laptop at the front desk on your way out. If you'll just follow me, Mr.Kent would like a word before you start. After you.
Sorry we can't give you your own swipe key. They're for employees only. Executive offices are just around the corner.Mr.Kent, this is Mr.Lassen.
Mr.Kent, pleasure to meet you.
Wesley... please. You mind if I call you Peter?
No, not at all.
Good. You're gonna be with us for the week, might as well work on a first-name basis.
Most C.E.O.s aren't as welcoming to an external auditor.
Well, you're just looking at our books. Armagnac...my daily vice. I thought that we could, uh... You know, drink to your new home for the week.
Ah, sorry, but not on the job.
Suit yourself お好きにどうぞ
I'll be coordinating with my team at Banefield financial. The first thing I'll need to send to them are expense reports from your senior staff.
Whatever you want, we will provide. And miss Samuel is at your service.
If you can just show me where to set up.
My office...where is it?
Peter...This is your office.
Now, if we can come together... "together" being the key word... we can move forward.
Look, if I'm gonna spend my time working with lady suit, it'd better be worth it.
And if I'm gonna spend my precious time supervising your pocket-sized pal, he better watch what he says.
Why are you even here?
Because my boss asked me. You?
Uh, because Neal asked me.
So Neal's your boss?
Hey, I answer to no one, Nancy Drew! I already have one fed in my life.
And I've got plenty of crooks in mine.
Hey, hey. We need to find Fowler. We know Kate tried to contact him after Peter showed up at the hangar that day. He's the only one who can tell us what really happened. Please.
Fine. But I have rules.
You have rules?
You will meet me with all the pertinent files at a time and place of my choosing. I will contact you via express courier. You will receive a package. In that package will be a sonnet giving clue to our rendezvous point.
pertinent 関連のある rendezvous 待ち合わせ
You want to send me a sonnet?
I don't do scavenger hunts. Or poems.
Ah, this is Jones.
I can handle this.
I don't get handled!
Guys, please. Adults.
