A foreigner asked me for his missing vehicle. The clues are apparently hidden in the weather balloon file
???: You. Detective. Yes?
Detective: Yes, this is the detective's office. You have quite a foreign accent. Do you have a case for me?
???: Foreign. Yes. Case. Yes. Missing. Vehicle.
Detective: Doesn't sound too hard, but I need more information.
???: File. You. Read. All. Information. There.
Detective: But I'm reading a file about a weather balloon crash!
???: Must. Phone. Home. Must...
Detective: Great. The line is dead. And he didn't even leave any contact.
Pola Chapelle: There you are! Were you avoiding me on purpose? You're up to something no good?
Pola Chapelle: That? I almost forg... On second thought, yeah, I was pretty mad at you. But you could soften my heart with a little favor...
Detective: I walked straight into that one, didn't I? Well, what are you looking for?
Pola Chapelle: A UFO.
Detective: A what?
Pola Chapelle: An unidentified flying object. You don't read much science fiction, do you?
Detective: I have a lot of reading, and none of it is fiction. I'm going through this weather balloon crash file, and...
Pola Chapelle: *gasp* you WHAT?! You have the Corona Crash file?! it's the ultimate proof of an encounter with an alien civilization!
Detective: Well, I was asked to check it out. You're welcome to hop on board.

Detective: That's unusual. Apparently, our investigation attracted an unwanted attention from the authorities. But it's just a weather balloon!
Pola Chapelle: Ugh! I told you, it isn't a weather balloon. It's a spaceship! And your client is probably an alien!
Pola Chapelle: And I want to believe!
City search: Not Exactly NevadaEdit
Pola Chapelle: If you don't believe in aliens, then why are we here, outside the city?
Detective: The file mentions the crash site at Corona. I don't believe it was a UFO, but maybe some other kind of a flying vehicle.
Pola Chapelle: Uh-huh. And what would that be? A Soviet spy plane?
Detective: Well, why won't we find out?
The crash site is:
- exactly 2 from a campsite
- not on water
- more than 1 from ports
- not on parks
- not on railways
- more than 2 from shops
- more than 1 from canal
- not on farms
- On the map there are 4 campsites
- On the map there are 2 ports
- On the map there are 3 shops
- On the map there are 2 farms
Detective: So we're here. In the middle of nowhere. And I don't see a thing...
Pola Chapelle: And what's that? A crop circle!
Detective: If by crop circle you mean that flattened patch of cereal...
Detective: This place isn't far away from the nearest village. If the UFO had landed here, somebody would have seen it.
Pola Chapelle: And somebody did. I bet the government forced them into silence!
Suspect identification: Gas LeakEdit
Detective: All right. Let's say I believe you and there really is a government conspiracy. How can we trace it down?
Pola Chapelle: Somebody had to do all the intimidating, right? There probably was an agent in the town.
Detective: Well, I'll be...
Pola Chapelle: Does he look spooky enough for you? Let's track him down!
A Close EncounterEdit
Detective: That's weird. His last place of employment is listed as this abandoned military base.
Pola Chapelle: Do you really believe it's abandoned? They're probably using it as a base for covert operations.
Detective: Well, I don't see anyone in there. Maybe I should check it out.
Pola Chapelle: Just be careful! I'll stay here, in the event that they catch you.
Detective: Very reassuring. Thanks.
When you enter the first locked room:
Detective: A lot of electronic surveillance, but no personnel. How strange.
When you find the saucer:
Detective: What the...! You've got to be kidding me. A real flying saucer? I wonder what's inside...
Detective: Candy? The saucer is full of candy? I don't understand...
William Davis: I've tracked your progress for some time now. You're a persistent man, I must admit.
Detective: And you caught me red-handed. So that's it, then? Are you going to arrest me?
William Davis: That's pointless. You'll just find a way to come back. You always do.
Detective: Then you better start answering my questions. Why is there candy in the saucer?
William Davis: How[sic] you ever seen the cartoon about a pooch solving mysteries?
Detective: Yeah. They all seem supernatural, but in reality, that's just a way to cover up a real crime...
Detective: Wait a second! That candy! So the saucer is fake. Somebody tried to smuggle candy inside it, knowing that would baffle the authorities!
William Davis: Bravo. You figured it out by yourself. Now if you excuse me, I've got some smugglers to catch...
Pola Chapelle: Where were you for so long? I was worried sick!
Pola Chapelle: They got to you, huh? The government. They fed you lies and forced you to repeat them!
Pola Chapelle: Then how do you explain this? I found this on your doorstep!
Detective: An envelope... with money? It has the words "GOOD DISTRACTION. GOOD JOB." written on it. I don't understand!
Pola Chapelle: But I do. Just wait for the article in the Daily News. it's going to be out of this world!
