Back in the B-plot, Keiko has stumbled into a scene that looks like a hybrid between Pimp My Ride and Stand and Deliver. However, because she is so freakin' winsome and a robotics genius to boot, this scene does not end with a Channel 5 News Team reporter standing in front of a crime tape-cordoned scene intoning, "A Japanese tourist was robbed by what appears to be the Decepticon Starscream..." Instead, Keiko ends up impressing the admirably open-minded owner of the car with her hydraulics know-how.
It's Janis's turn in the hot seat, and she leads off with, "This is really screwing with my trust issues. You know that" I like her sense of humor. She huffily points out that she took a bullet, ergo she ought not be a suspect. Vogel says, "You have to admit that getting shot and living makes for a perfect cover." Janis cordially invites Vogel to enjoy a rich and healthy sex life with himself. Mark is the one who presses Janis: she's had 13 unaccounted personal breaks since the blackout, which is a noticeable deviation from her usual pattern of having next-to-none. Janis admits that she's been trying to get knocked up, but Vogel notes that only accounts for eight of the breaks. He wants to know where she was for the other five. Janis says, "Ever since the shooting, I've been looking at everyone differently. Suspicious. Just checking up." "And you found something," Vogel prods. Janis says, "Marcie has a half-brother. He's very sick, in Missouri. He's dying in a care facility. It's expensive. Marcie didn't name him in any of her applications. Those absences? I went off-site to look into some things." Vogel's all, "And we are finding out about this now because...?" Janis heatedly says she was waiting to see if Marcie "did something." Also, Marcie has an extra $50K in her bank account that didn't used to be there. Janis grumps off and Vogel asks, "You trust her?" Mark pissily replies, "Being around you makes me not trust anyone anymore." Vogel makes an exaggerated "Oooh, my feelings" face and bops out the door. I can't be sure, but I bet he gets together with his CIA drinking buddies and he's like, "The highlight of my day is pissing off someone in the FBI, and these simpletons just keep making my days great!"
