Inside now, the aunts examine the bird and tell Olive it is a carrier pigeon. They find a message which Aunt Vivian wants to open, but Aunt Lily asks if they would ordinarily opens people's mail. Olive volleys, "Who's the people and how hard is it to open?" which sends Aunt Vivian into one quick gale of laughter, which surprises even Aunt Vivian. They ask each other what's gotten into them, though if I had to guess, I would say it's probably the fact that Broadway superstar Kristin Chenoweth is in their house, and if they're very nice and fix her zombie bird, maybe she'll delight us all with another number from Grease. Maybe "Beauty School Dropout," with Swoosie Kurtz, if we should be so lucky, playing the part of Frenchy?
Olive convinces the aunts to help the carrier pigeon deliver his message, and pushes the plan even further by telling them that, when their mission is complete, they'll celebrate at the Pie Hole. The aunts ask, appropriately enough, why they would go out to get pie when there is a pie delivered to them, like, every five minutes.
Back at the actual scene of the crime, someone finally got around to hanging one "X" of police tape in front of the door, but then never got around to locking the door on the way out. Ned and Emerson reenter the premises, this time on a mission to find Chuck and her new special friend who may or may not be Conrad. Ned finds evidence of the two of them having had coffee together, which sends him into some anxiety. Just at this moment, though, they dig up some plot where they least expect it, when the table underneath the coffee cups reveals yet another dead man. Ned does the finger jive and the man in the coffee table wakes up. Ned asks if the man hijacked the plane, and the man responds that the plane flew into his apartment. Emerson wants to know, then, who Conrad is, at which point the man in the coffee table indicates the embroidery on his very own shirt reading, "Conrad." Well then who is it Chuck has been drinking coffee with right next to a dead man's coffee table? One quick edit until we find out!
Back at the Pie Hole, Chuck and Not-rad enter, Chuck asking if Not-rad likes pie. Because we are about to find out he is pure eeeeeeeeeeevil, Not-rad mutters under his breath, "It would be criminal not to like pie." I'm sorry, but what is this Shakespearean aside indicating the character's inner thoughts? How cartoonishly evil is this person? Is this Charles Grodin in The Great Muppet Caper, all, "That's what you think, Miss Piggy!" as soon as her back is turned? Why so dark all of a sudden? Did he read the script and know he's about to be found out?
