Back to the cell. The deputy reaches over and grabs a ledger and walks away without seeing the fax. Jesse is sweating bullets. He is also being muy obvious by staring at the deputy and the fax machine. The deputy gathers some more books and walks out.
The interrogation room. The Sheriff then says threateningly that if Kimble doesn't mind, he wants to run him through the system so both he and "Ray" can be clear about what they're saying to each other, and why. The Sheriff gets called outside. Kimble drops his head into his hands.
Meanwhile, back in the jail cell, Jesse starts stripping down to use his clothes to snap the fax of Kimble's "Wanted" flier out of the tray. He hears voices outside and his task becomes more urgent. He manages to flick it off the machine and onto the desk. Hey, maybe Jesse and Kimble will escape together, and he'll hit the road with Kimble, just like Batman had Robin, his "ward"!
Outside, the deputy who interviewed the neighbor high on the Holy Spirit tells the Sheriff all the info he got, including the fact that there was a kid in the passenger seat wearing a blue baseball hat backward. Just like Zach's best friend! The Sheriff's bulbous nose gets bigger. He tells the deputy to get the state guys out of his office.
Kimble starts pacing the room and flipping through the notices on the wall. He suddenly decides to make a break for it, except the door is locked. Tarnation!
Zach enters his dad's office. The Sheriff asks him where he was when Shelley's car was stolen. Zach mumbles something about being with Denny at the DQ, "maybe." Wow, great liar, that Zach. The Sheriff asks if he was ever in Shelley's car. Zach feigns disbelief. Actually, I don't know what he does, but I do know that Western Union could deliver disbelief more effectively that ol' Zach does right here. The Sheriff then tells Zach that he and Denny are going to be fingerprinted, because there were two sets of unidentifiable fingerprints in the car and they just want to be sure. Zach refuses to do it because "it's stupid." He does a pretty good job of behaving like a nervous teenager who's almost -- but not quite -- caught. Zach then breaks just like a little girl and says, "Don't do this, Dad, please." The Sheriff then says, "Son, if you've got something to tell me, just do it." What the hell? Like the Sheriff is going to stop covering up for his son just because the crime got a lot bigger? Oh yeah, that's sure believable with everything that we've just seen in the episode.
