Jane Doe: The Harder They Fall

Synopsis: Californian food tycoon Melville Horning dies, apparently drowned accidentally on a yacht cruise with his firm's four executive directors, actually murdered. The prime suspect, his security chief Jim Monroe, implores his former CSA colleagues to investigate, claiming jurisdiction as the recent machinations in the firm, probably inside trading, not only affected stock prices but also US export. Frank and Jane work out what's with a recent TV interview, allegedly live, the yacht cruise, each director's possible motives and the fifth executive who actually succeeded as CEO. Meanwhile good son Nick gets into trouble by trying to help his foolish brat sister cover up her reckless college fund speculation.

THE OLD MAN SLIPPED

AND FELL OVERBOARD.

WHO SLIPPED?

MELVILLE HORNING,

THE BIG BOSS.

SOMEBODY HAD TO TAKE

THE BLAME, SO THEY FIRED ME.

THEY WOULDN'T EVEN

LET ME SEE HIM.

I TOLD THEM I WASN'T DRUNK,

BUT THEY FIRED ME ANYWAY.

WHY DIDN'T THEY

BELIEVE YOU?

I WAS HAVING--

SOME KIND OF DIZZY SPELL.

WERE YOU DRINKING AGAIN?

MAGGIE--

I SWEAR TO YOU:

I HAVEN'T HAD A DRINK

IN 91/2 MONTHS.

YOU GOT TO BELIEVE ME.

I CAN'T.

I'M SORRY.

I THINK YOU SHOULD LEAVE.

[DOOR OPENS]

[DOOR CLOSES]

CATHY DAVIS,

HAVE YOU THOUGHT UP

A NEW BRAINTEASER?

FEEL LIKE BEING TEASED?

BY YOU? ANY TIME.

ALL RIGHT.

THIS ONE'S A RIDDLE.

RIDDLE ME.

OK.

AT NIGHT THEM COME

WITHOUT BEING FETCHED.

AND AT DAY THEY'RE LOS WITHOUT BEING STOLEN.

AT NIGHT THEY COME

WITHOUT BEING FETCHED.

AND BY DAY THEY'RE LOS WITHOUT BEING STOLEN.

TINKER, TAILOR, HOUSEWIFE,

SPY, AND PUZZLE MAKER.

HAVE I LEFT ANYTHING OUT?

I PREFER:

DOMESTIC GODDESS

OF THE CENTRAL:

SECURITY AGENCY.

SPEAKING OF WHICH, HAVE YOU

HEARD FROM FRANK DARNELL LATELY?

NO, I HAVEN'T.

I GUESS HE DOESN'T NEED ME.

GOOD, WELL, THAT MAKES

MORE FOR ME.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I JUST NEED TO TAPE SOMETHING

ON THE FINANCE CHANNEL.

WHAT?

THE FINANCE CHANNEL?

IT'S MY RARE PLEASURE

TO BE SPEAKING LIVE

IN OUR STUDIO:

WITH NOTORIOUSLY RECLUSIVE

BREAKFAST CEREAL MAGNATE,

MELVILLE HORNING.

WE JUST DON' LIKE CONTROVERSY.

NOW IS THAT WHY:

YOU'RE SUING

FILMMAKER ROBBIE WATERS

TO KEEP HIS DOCUMENTARY,

SERIAL KILLER,

OFF THE AIR?

OURS IS A HIGHLY

COMPETITIVE FIELD.

THE COMPANY--

IT'S FOR ECONOMICS CLASS.

I OWN HORNING FOODS

IN MY FANTASY:

STOCK PORTFOLIO.

WE'RE BEING GRADED ON IT.

IT'S A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT.

WELL, THE WORLD MAKES

SENSE AGAIN.

DAD, I JUST WANTED

TO MAKE SURE:

THEY DIDN'T ANNOUNCE

ANYTHING IMPORTAN OR GO BANKRUP BEFORE CLASS TOMORROW.
