I'm Mary Riesgraf reporting

live from the studio downtown.

Let's check in with Andra,

Who's at the site

of the investigation.

Thanks, Mary.

Law enforcement officials

have described

the event as one of

the most tragic,

gruesome murders

that this town has seen.

My daughter called me

when she heard gunshots.

They say it was a scene

from a horror movie.

Paul and Lily Anders were in

the comfort of their own home...

They were always so nice to me.

We still don't know

what, if any,

Was the cause of

such a brutal attack.

Hey, Mikey.

Hey. Are you ready

for the big one?

I think so.

What about you?

Yeah, I got it.

Yeah? See you later.

See you later.


Do you have a minute,

chef Brookstone?

Most certainly.

Uh, why don't we go

into my office?

And, Lily, please,

just call me Stephan.

Thank you again

for the extra time

to make up my exams.

The move-in took a little longer

than Paul and I expected.

That's fine.

All fine. It happens.

You know,

You are one of

my shining examples.


No, validation

that my methods

work beautifully.

But don't think

for a moment I don't notice you

adding your own magic.


Without being

a complete copycat.

You know, I really, really think

that that is an excellent...

Oh, that's very kind of you.



how are things going with you and... Paul?


Wonderful, in fact.

Oh, god, look at

the time. I got to get going,

But thank you so much

for all your kind words,

and I'll see you

tomorrow, so... bye.

No, no. It's around

what you asked for.

8,257 square feet.

And it's ready now.

The previous owners left about a month ago.

Ooh, was it a celebrity?

I can't disclose that.

Well, it will interest you

that any info like that

couldn't hurt in tipping my

liaison's interest, so spill it.

I'll see what I can do.

That's better.

Now, about this pool... is there any

room for a waterslide extension?

And would the neighborhood be averse

to a helicopter coming in and out?

Hey, everyone,

this is "awesome" Austin Phillips

on Wyndham's 105.3

just keeping you updated.

The ferry services are closed

due to some police activity,


God! Are you

kidding me?

Damn it!

Oh, god!

Lily? Are you

having some trouble?

Thank you.

Thank you.




Who's your friend here,

And where's the car?

Hey, there.

You may have heard of me.

Stephan Brookstone.


He's my head instructor

at the academy, Remember?

Yes, you,

uh... you have a bit of car trouble.

Luck had it I was nearby.

So we had to tow your car.

But I know the best mechanic in town.

He's brilliant, so...

And he helped me get groceries.

So, glad to give a hand.

What have you got in here?

Is this for me?


Have a good day.

Thank you.

How's the car?

Oh. Should be

a quick fix.

I got their card.


Would you relax? I told you,

He's harmless.

You did such a good job of

putting the kitchen together.

And all by your lonesome.

I picked up a few things,

None of which include

taking pictures

of how things happen

in other kitchens.

Oh, whatever works.

Sorry I wasn't around

to help out with that.

You know what?


I cannot wait

Until you are done with school,

Because I am gonna

eat like a king.


just because I'm doing all this cooking

and learning all these gourmet dishes,

don't think for a second

that you're gonna have me

slaving around in here.

What's that smell?

Crap! God!

This is what I'm talking about.

Are you sure it said "high"?


Did I say "high"?

This is ruined now!
