"Sam Lowry is being followed by some spook with a camera, and the mayor wants the matter resolved quickly."


Alphonse Covet: Someone 's trying to dig up a scandal in the city hall, detective. They're harassing one of my employees.

Detective: Looks like an attempt to turn the tide of the elections. And your opponent has just the means to use such information.

Alphonse Covet: You've got a knack for politics, I'll give you that. Yes, I suspect this is Jameson's plot.

Detective: I'll say it straight - do you think there really is something worth digging up?

Alphonse Covet: You should ask my employee personally. You already know Sam Lowry, don't you?


Detective: How did you manage to get in trouble again, Sam? Is this something about you and Jill?

Sam Lowry: No, no! I, uh... I've got a lot of work right now. As Covet's assistant I deal both with the city hall and his campaign staff.

Sam Lowry: I barely cope with it at all. And I... sometimes I need a boost of energy, you know? So I...

Detective: You eat candy. Figures. A candy-eating assistant working for the anti-sugar mayor. A perfect card in Jameson's game. Does he have any proof?

Sam Lowry: He might. I think some spook was following me around, taking pictures. They might have a photo of me buying candy. You've got to stop them!

Detective: Even if someone got wind about Sam's lack of judgment, they're long gone by now.

If you win:

Detective: So, you're still stalking my friend, huh? Spill the beans, or...

Bart Olsen: Please, don't hurt me! I'm not even a real photographer! The photos were for the chief of a small editorial office. I even got the camera from them. I swear!

City Search: Extra, Extra! Read all about it!Edit

Detective: I have to find the editorial office that paparazzo talked about.

If you fail:

Detective: This isn't the place. Maybe that paparazzo was lying, after all?

If you win:

Detective: Uh-huh! Just like I thought, the local office for the Daily News. I should hang around for a while.

Suspect identification: Exclusive InterviewEdit

Detective: I need to confront the editor-in-chief. Luckily, they should be coming to work soon.

Solution: Pola Chapelle

If you fail:

Detective: That's not the editor-in-chief. It's a small office, probably no one of importance ever comes here.

If you win:

Detective: Pola! What should I do now? Confronting her just like that is out of the question. I need to gather some proof that she really is mixed up in this.

Crime scene search: Orphans and WidowsEdit

Detective: No one should be inside the office right now. I just need to look around for the photos of Lowry...

In the Shed, there are two candies and Sailor's Mints in the Locker.

In the Room East of the storage, cut the yellow wire. There is a Paper Clip in the Waste Basket.

In the area outside of the Room East of the Storage, there is $ 10 in the Phone Booth.

If you enter the room north of newsroom.

Detective: What's this? This is clearly Pola's room, but the cork-boards are covered with photos and clippings of.. me!

If you fail:

Detective: I don't think I can find solid proof that Pola was somehow connected to the plot.

If you win:

Detective: *sigh* Those are probably the photos. I 'll just need to expose the film to the light, and everything will be gone.

Pola Chapelle: Ahem. Would you kindly put that down and tell me what are you doing in my office?

Detective: No, I won't. You failed my trust, Pola. Going after my friend Sam like that!

Pola Chapelle: How can you be rooting for him? He's munching candy on the job!

Detective: Sam's a good man, he's just under a lot of pressure. You and your boss aren't making things easier for him.

Pola Chapelle: You think I'm doing this for Jameson's campaign?

Detective: That would explain your new post as the editor-in-chief, wouldn't it?

Pola Chapelle: You're destroying evidence instead of doing what's right? Fine, I won't tell anyone about Lowry. The photos are already gone, anyway. Just get out of my office.


If you fail:

Alphonse Covet: Is it taken care of, detective?

Detective: I'm afraid not, sir. Even if someone really has some scandalous materials against Sam Lowry, I can't get to them.

Alphonse Covet: A pity I'll need to send Sam Lowry on an unpaid leave till this gets sorted out.

If you win:

Detective: I've destroyed the evidence. Sam can sleep peacefully now. You better give him a few days off, you know. This whole affair has really gotten to him.

Alphonse Covet: Maybe you're right. I'll send your check ASAP.

Detective: Am I? I tried helping one friend and exchanged blows with another.

Detective: And all those clippings about me in Pola's office? Maybe Sam can sleep peacefully, but I can't. That's for sure.
