The Curse of the Jade Scorpion

Synopsis: CW Briggs is a veteran insurance investigator, with many successes. Betty Ann Fitzgerald is a new employee in the company he works for, with the task of reorganizing the office. They don't like each other - or at least that's what they think. During a night out with the rest of the office employees, they go to watch Voltan, a magician who secretly hypnotizes both of them, in order to use them for his dirty schemes. The next evening already, Briggs makes his first robbery, and when he wakes up in the morning he has no memory of it. Things get really complicated when he starts investigating the case. Will he be able to uncover... himself?

I hate you, and I hate the chancellor

of Germany...

with the little mustache,

but not in that order.

Be careful when you leave.

Don't let the door hit you on the back

and fracture your pelvis.

So, did you tell her who's boss?

Is she kiddin',

talkin' to me like that?

It's 'cause she thinks she's smarter.

'Cause she graduated from Vassar,

and I went to driving school.

Does she have any idea

how many cases I cracked here?

Never trust a woman who

whistles for her own cabs.


Excuse me. Miss Fitzgerald?

- Is that Miss Fitzgerald's lunch?

- Mm-hmm.

- Sorry we're so late. We're jammed up.

- That's okay.

- Here. Keep that. It's for you.

- Thanks.

This is Fitzgerald's lunch.

She's been waiting a long time for it.

I'll deliver it to her.

You got to come to some terms with this

woman. This thing is only gettin' worse.

What do we need an efficiency expert

here for?

When the old man was here,

this never could have happened.

Thought you were gonna take her out

for a drink, clear the air.

I did. I took her two weeks ago

to Rocky's Bar.

You and Fitzgerald at Rocky's Bar?

- Sorry I'm late.

- No problem. It's just

an hour and 15 minutes.

- My meeting ran long.

- I-- I understand.

We're revamping the offices, getting rid

of that antiquated filing system.

Yes? I can find anything I need.

I can locate it like that. I got a feel

for where all the stuffis in my office.

We're making a central data file on the

second floor. You'll get used to it.

What's the matter?

You look flushed.

No, I'm just--

I'm just a little warm. That's all.

You have all your

business meetings here?

It's near the office. The coat check

girl's pretty. don't you like it?

No, it's fine. Gives new meaning

to the word "dive, " but it's convenient.
