The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries: “The Mystery Of The Flying Courier”

Then we are at the police station with Ken Swofford again, so I guess the police picked up the boys when they found them at The Suck Factory. Being questioned at the moment are Frank, Joe, and Tailgunner. Asked whether he knows the woman Frank and Joe were looking for, Tailgunner says he does, but he claims to have no idea why she would have been "arrested." Swofford gives up that, following his investigation, it appears that no state or federal authorities have any idea what's up with Suzie-Not-Suzie. Frank insists that the guys had badges and said they were cops. Joe comes up with the brilliant idea that maybe the guys used the badges to fool Suzie-Not-Suzie. Joe, you are so smart. "I think she's in danger!" Frank announces. Swofford says that if she's around, his men will find her. Frank tells the story of the destruction of Suzie-Not-Suzie's car, and the ransacking of her apartment. Frank then hands over the key, right in front of Tailgunner, who is very interested in this particular development. He stares lustily at the key. Swofford goes over to his desk and compares the key to one he has on a ring. He announces that the key is to a safe-deposit box at "Valley View Federal." And he thinks they've got "enough reasons to take a look in that box." And then he turns on Tailgunner and says he assumes there won't be any charges pressed against the boys, since "there was no harm done." So that's another scrape they've gotten themselves out of. Whew! Swofford gets on the phone with a judge, presumably to get a warrant. We don't actually see the judge, but I'm thinking...Ray Walston.

Outside the police station, Tailgunner heads for the back seat of a car being driven by the suits. Tailgunner breaks the news that the cops have the key to the box. He says that, "according to them, somebody has to be pushing Sandy from the other side." I'm so confused. I can't believe the plot of this has actually left me behind. It's like not being able to "understand" an Egg McMuffin. They drive off.

Swofford opens the box, but it's empty. They go out and look at the card to see who's accessed the box recently, and the nice lady says that Suzie-Not-Suzie was there an hour ago to access the box herself. She didn't have her key, but when she showed proper ID, they opened it for her. The lady describes Suzie-Not-Suzie to a T, so Swofford and the boys are now sure they are on the right track. Frank immediately suspects that Suzie-Not-Suzie was kidnapped, got away, came to the box to get money, and is now "on the run." That's a very complete picture he's pulled together from no information at all. Just then, the lady's phone rings, and it's for Swofford. Wow, they really do track his movements. Able to ring the nice lady's desk right when he was standing there talking to her? I tell you, cell phones perhaps had no more salutary effect than requiring much less suspension of disbelief. When he gets off the phone, Swofford announces that Suzie-Not-Suzie has just been picked up at a movie theater.
