They see a heavily-sealed iron door in the wall, and the secretary tells them it was Rollie's private exit that leads through the inside of the dam to a private stairwell. Emerson immediately opens it and takes off through the door leaving Chuck and Ned to listen intently to the secretary's toxic chemical theory. Within the innards of the dam, Emerson runs into police Detective Puget. "Who didn't want to knock off Stingwell?" Puget says, and lists off various suspects: the companies up for the re-piping contracts; a bunch of farmers bitter over their water supply being dammed up; and anyone interested in stealing the Dam Ruby that Rollie "flaunted like a trophy wife at a high school reunion." Emerson offers a lead and suggests Puget get on the trail of Lila, turning over the photo of her taken at the dam. "Never known you to share, Cod," Puget points out. "What's your angle?" Emerson says maybe he wouldn't mind a little help bringing down the hammer of justice on whatever lowlife committed the crime. "Doesn't matter to me if that hammer's public or private, as long as the nail gets hit on the head," he says. "Catch my drift?" Puget pauses, furrowing his brow. "I... do not," he says. Emerson puts it in terms he can understand: "Catch. The. Bitch." HAAA! He tells Puget to use all his resources and use them quickly. "'Cause I guaran-damn-tee you, she movin' fast, and the trail's gettin' cold."
