The Unusuals Premiere
In the interrogation room, the professorial burglar of cats, whose name is -- get this -- Harold Snape, says he's done nothing wrong. Banks asks him if he's ever taken a lie detector test, and Professor Snape says no. Perfect. Banks puts Professor's hand on a tabletop photo copier sitting next to him, and asks if his name is Harold Snape. He says "yes," and Banks hits "copy." A picture of Snape's hand comes out with "True" written on it in red marker. Banks asks if he was born in 1975. "Yes." Another "True." They ask him if he has anything to confess. He says "no," and this time the hand has "Lie!" written on it. Now, this is a funny trick (maybe an old one), but this guy is crazy, not stupid (I thought). Does he think this is an actual lie detector, or is he just playing along as the detectives try to tell him that they know he's lying? It's not really clear either way, but this is a funny scene, if a little unbelievable. Delahoy asks if Banks wants a soda, then brings over a cooler that was in the corner of the room. The dead cat is in it, and Delahoy opens it up ad shoves it in Snape's face, talking to him in a high-pitched voice like a cat and asking why he killed him. "I didn't kill you!" screams Snape. His hand is still on the copier, and Banks hits the button. "Lie!" Snape says he was doing nothing wrong, that that was his cat -- except the detectives checked his apartment, and there was no cat food or kitty litter. He says it's his friend's, and he accidentally let it out, and Delahoy starts off quietly, saying that when liars lie, they pick a lie and (he yells this next bit and pounds the table) THEY STICK TO IT! He's got a little Goren going on! Criminal Intent, represent! Banks says he thinks Snape likes how it feels when he snaps their necks. Snape denies it. Banks hits "copy." Lie!
