Cut to someone being loaded into a black body bag. Boy, that was abrupt. Lieutenant Daghlian is in a burned-out building arguing with someone that if someone's burnt to a crisp, that's murder. The other guy says, "Only if it's arson, and it ain't arson until I say it's arson." Will asks if it's arson. The other guy says he's investigating that, and until he decides, the cops have no jurisdiction. Daghlian gripes, "Nozzleheads. Got no respect for a crime scene." The investigator replies, "Nozzleheads? Girl Scouts solve more murders than you people do." Man, if I'd known there was a forensics badge, I wouldn't have quit after Brownies. I knew the Scout leader was a real nightmare, so I got roped into being a Pioneer Girl at church instead. More religion, but less ugly uniform. Man, now I'm having some strange flashbacks. I might need to go lie down. Will says, "That may have been true in the past, but not anymore. So you want to rethink your tone?" Some other guy wanders in and says, "Come on, now, let's get fraternal." Will greets him as "Chief Wyatt." Wyatt tells Will not to get all stiff and official just because "the kids are fighting." Will explains they're having crime scene issues. Wyatt tells his investigator, whose name is Roy, that he's going to inform Daghlian as soon as he decides whether it's arson. Thanks for the micromanagement there. I think that's what he was already planning to do. Wyatt turns to Daghlian and asks him if he's name is Armenian -- which Daghlian confirms -- and says you don't see a lot of Armenian cops. Daghlian, understandably, doesn't know what to say to that. Maybe he should point out there'd be a lot more Armenians around if the Turks hadn't slaughtered about one and a half million of them in 1915. Then it would be Wyatt's turn to not know what to say.
