Who are you?

Ha. Hello, I'm Nancy Drew.

It's nice to meet you.

May I ask who you are?

- Guess.

- All right.

I'm guessing you two are working

with Lawrence McNabb...

...the locksmith,

he gives you the keys...

...and you're responsible

for the recent burglaries.

However, you should know

the DA is only interested in McNabb-

You two could make a deal with him.

- and that Charlie the security guard

is about to walk through that door.


Listen to me. I'll get Pastor Murray

to drop the charges...

...if you agree to

some kind of counseling.

Anger issues don't just go away.

- I don't need a shrink.

- Yeah, you do.

He gets cranky when he hasn't eaten.

I told him, "Go have a snack. "

I said, "Before we get here,

you better have a snack. "

Oh, one summer,

we're on Fire Island...

Hey- Not with that story again.

Hold on.

What's that?

My sleuth kit.

Flashlight, fountain pen, notebook,

magnifying glass, fingerprint powder... recorder...

...and one of Hannah's lemon bars.


is Nancy okay?

Are you kidding?

She's loving it.

- Here he is.

- Nancy?

Hi, Ned.

I had this dream

during my nap today... went to California,

met that guy on Smallville...

...and you got amnesia...

...and forgot you ever met me,

and then I turned into a squirrel.

Anyway, what do you think that means?

Uh. Um, Ned, can we talk about

this later? I'm just a little busy.

Y eah, sorry.

All right, okay.

Not appropriate, Ned.

You take naps?

What's going on?

Is she okay?

Hey, now don't worry.

I just talked with her. She's doing fine.

Nancy's my best man.

I mean, she would be

if she were on the force.

Fine. Therapy.


I'll call the DA back. Ha.

I just wanna thank you, Nancy Drew.

I've always heard

the nicest things about you...

...the way you solve mysteries

and you help people.


Please don't thank her for turning us in.

I think Crankenstein needs

another lemon bar.

I thought the Crankasaurus

was extinct.

I don't know about this.

Well, I'm sorry, Cranky Doodle Dandy.

I can't do this.

Gary, we made a deal.

Deals go wrong.

Hey. Where is she?

We need her.

You take that side.

Hey, Gary, look.


Let's get out of here.

It's Nancy!

Hi, everybody.

Hold it there.

Hold it right there.

Hold on, Nancy.

We got the fire department here.

That's all right, chief.

I'll be down in a jiffy.

Hang on, Nancy.

Are you okay?

I'm fine, Dad. Really.

In the sleuthing business,

this kind of thing happens all the time.

It really isn't a big deal.

It is a big deal.

I ran from the courthouse in the middle

of that eviction case, which the judge...

...he didn't appreciate.

Where is your car?

Around the corner.

Is now a better time?

Because I wanted to give you this.

Well, your hunch was right

on the nose, Nancy.

Just wish you could have

clued us in a little earlier.

Safe as usual.

All right, Nancy, right here.

Hi, Nancy.

-hank you.


Nancy, what are we going to do

without you?

It's only for a few months.

I'll be back.

The image of your mother.

Do you remember her at all?


She was such a lovely woman,

so kind and intelligent.

Just like you, Nancy.

- Bye, everybody.


So long, Nancy.

Shall we all pray

for her safe journey to California?


Dear Lord,

please watch over Nancy Drew...

...and protect her as she strives

to solve mysteries...

...that are beyond the abilities

of local law enforcement agencies.

Dad, I'm-

I want you to promise,

no more sleuthing... least while we're in California.

You'll go to school, shopping,
