Bob the Investigator: The Case of the Missing Fireman
At the office of Bob the Investigator…
Mr. Williams walks in.
Mr. Williams: Hello, Bob the Investigator. I'm missing my parachute.
Bob: That's too bad. When are you going skydiving?
Mr. Williams: I went earlier today.
Bob: Oh. Well, are you hurt?
Mr. Williams: Well, I landed in the house next door. Luckily, I fell through the chimney and landed on an air mattress. That reminds me.
Mr. Williams leaves the office and returns a minute later with the air mattress.
Mr. Williams: In 3…2…1…
A man lands on the air mattress.
Mr. Williams: What took you so long, Mr. Benson?
Mr. Benson: I stopped for coffee.
Mr. Williams: Well, anyway, I think I'll just find that parachute myself.
Mr. Williams and Mr. Benson leave. Mr. Green walks in.
Mr. Green: Hello, Bob the Investigator. I run the fire station down the street. We're missing one of our firemen, Austin.
Bob: Well, isn't that a good thing? No one likes someone who fires people.
Mr. Green: No, no. A fireman is someone who puts out fires.
Bob: Why would someone do that? I love roasting my marshmallows.
Mr. Green: Not campfires! House fires!
Bob: So, I roast marshmallows over house fires.
Mr. Green: Would you please just accept the case?
Bob: Well, my inner self says I shouldn't, but my outer self doesn't care as long as I have popcorn later. So, I will.
At the Fire Station…
Four firemen are sitting at a table playing cards.
Fireman # 1: Have you got any 10s?
Fireman # 2: I've got 10 fingers and 10 toes…I think.
Fireman # 3: You guys remember the plan, right?
Just then, Joey, the coffee boy, walks by and begins eavesdropping from behind a wall.
Fireman # 1: Of course. We're holding Austin hostage at the arcade. We send the boss a ransom note after the investigator leaves. Luckily, we cut the phone lines. Don't give back Austin unless he gives us the raises.
Just then, Mr. Green and Bob walk in.
Mr. Green: Boys, I'd like you to meet Bob the Investigator. He's going to try finding Austin for us.
Fireman # 1: Nice to meet you. Say boss, we're going home now.
Mr. Green: Alright. See you tomorrow.
The 4 firemen leave.
Mr. Green: I'm going into my office. Feel free to look around.
Bob begins looking around when Joey stops him.
Joey: Hello, Bob the Investigator. Are you searching for Austin?
Joey: I know where he is. The firemen are keeping him at the arcade.
Just then, the phone rings.
Caller: Hello, is your refrigerator running?
Bob: No, it's riding a bicycle.
Bob hangs up.
Bob: Let's go.
At the arcade…
Bob and Joey walk in.
Bob: You know, I've never been in one of these places before.
Joey: Ooh. They have Dot-Man.
Joey: Yeah. I'll show you how to play.
Joey takes Bob to the Dot-Man machine.
Joey: First, you need to put a quarter in.
Bob gets out a quarter.
Bob: Heads or tails?
Bob: Too bad. I'm not flipping.
Bob puts the quarter in the Dot-Man machine.
Joey: OK. Now the objective is to get as many dots as possible.
Bob starts playing, but then gets his Dot-Man killed by a ghost.
Bob: What happened?
Joey: Oh, I forgot to tell you. Dot-Man can't eat the ghosts. Otherwise, he dies.
Bob starts playing again but then loses another life.
Bob: Isn't there anyway to kill the ghosts?
Joey: No. They're always there. Sorry.
Bob starts playing again. When Dot-Man runs into a ghost, Bob presses a button that gives Dot-Man a gun to kill the ghost.
Joey: Alright. Let's go.
Bob and Joey head to the closet. It's locked.
Joey: How do we get in?
Bob: It's pretty simple: We need 100 sticks of dynamite.
Joey: Or we could ask for the keys from the manager.
Bob: Sure, if you want to ruin the fun in it.
Joey gets the keys and unlocks the door. He and Bob then barge in.
Bob: Halt, in the name of the law!
Fireman # 1: But your name isn't law.
Bob: Good point. Halt, in the name of Job the Investor.
Fireman # 4: Close enough.
Back at Bob's office…
Austin: Thank you for rescuing me, Bob the Investigator.
Bob: Anytime. Also, give this letter of recommendation to Mr. Green for promoting Joey to a fireman.
Austin takes the letter and leaves. Mr. Williams and Mr. Benson return with the mattress.
Bob: What are you doing?
Mr. Williams: We forgot, our other friend, Mr. Henson, is going to land.
Mr. Williams and Mr. Benson set up the mattress. Unfortunately, Mr. Henson lands on Bob.
Mr. Williams: What held you up?
Mr. Henson: I stopped to play Dot-Man. Is there anyway to kill those stupid ghosts?
Bob: I'll show you later.
