Back at the office, the computer unit tracks the photo of the marine to a website selling antique maps, and the owner refers to himself as "Semper Fi Forever." Lupo helpfully places the picture in Western Baghdad by the architecture. Why would he not have pointed that out before? Anita helpfully sends them on an antique map field trip to the NY Library's map room. The guy there tells them that the chances of buying an authentic map online are virtually nil, and goes to pull out the actual map of which they have a printout. He grabs a large binder and begins whipping through the pages, not being at all careful like I'd imagine one would have to do with antique paper, but that's well beside the point. The point is that the map has been stolen, as have all of the other ones featured for sale on the website. So back at the office, Anita's got an actual role this week, to chat with Semper Fi Forever so that the computer lady can track his location. Because she's awesome, she starts to flirt with him when she notices his attention waning and they grab the address -- when the boys barge in past a woman and two young boys, they make their way through the house to a far room where Munson is sitting at his computer. Bernard notices that Anita has asked for pictures and types back, "In your dreams, Loo." Shouldn't that be "Lu," instead of British slang for the toilet? But she knows they've nabbed the guy, and has a celebratory bon bon with the computer lady.
[Dear Cialis: I never ever wanted to think about how, in coming home from college one day, I might be surprising my parents when they were about to get it on. Thanks a lot for a mental picture that I now can't get out of my head.]
Mrs. Munson is still a little bit shaken up from cops breaking down her door. She's also really naïve and insists "her Bob" wouldn't do anything like stealing maps. Lupo asks where her Bob was on Monday and she insists he was home; even though she went to bed early, like always, she's a light sleeper and would have heard him go out. She doesn't know the combo to the safe, so she's generally useless. Lupo, however, gets it on the first try with her and Bob's wedding date and inside finds the maps as well as a bunch of pictures of military guys and a traveler's check for $5,000. He then shows these to Bob in the interview room, where Bob stutters and sweats about how he got the maps at a flea market. When they ask if Eric was his partner, he insists vehemently that Eric had nothing to do with him. Lupo theorizes that Eric discovered what Bob was doing online and was going to bust him, so Bob killed him to keep him quiet. They also tell him that his wife heard him go out, but he says she's a heavy sleeper. When they say she told them the opposite, he finally asks for a lawyer. Why do these people never just do that in the first place? Although I suppose then this would be a much more boring show. They leave the room, whereupon Anita congratulates them on the theory but points out their lack of evidence. The boys know he used the money he made on the maps to buy traveler's checks, which were then cashed in Plattsburgh with a phony ID and a signature that wasn't Bob's, and it seems that he didn't go there himself. Apparently, he had cut $60,000 in checks over the past six months, and Lupo supposes that he sent the money to a partner for safekeeping. Anita points out, "Well, maybe the partner can connect the Bob dot to the Eric dot." She's feeling a little spicy today!
