THIS ISN'T HAPPENING TO ME.

WHAT IS HAPPENING

TO YOU, SHAWN?

ONLY THE WORST THING EVER!

A MISSING CAPTAIN DELICIOUS

MAGIC MOOD RING!

DAD, THIS IS A CRIME.

CAN YOU HAVE THEM

ARRESTED?

FIRST OF ALL, SHAWN, NO,

THIS IS NOT A CRIME.

CAN'T YOU JUST HAUL THEM IN

FOR QUESTIONING?

LAY INTO THEM A LITTLE?

AND WHO IS "THEM"?

YOU KNOW, THE CEREAL PEOPLE?

OH, THE CEREAL PEOPLE, HUH?

I'LL TELL YOU

WHAT, SHAWN.

YOU CAN SPEND A LOT OF TIME

CALLING 411

TO GET THE NUMBER

FOR YOUR CEREAL PEOPLE.

THEY'RE GOING TO STICK YOU

ON HOLD FOREVER,

LISTENING TO BAD MUSIC,

FINALLY YOU'RE GOING TO GE SOME DIM-WITTED SECRETARY

WHO'S GOING TO TAKE

YOUR MESSAGE,

AND THEN SHE'S GOING

TO THROW I:

IN A WASTEBUCKET.

OR YOU CAN USE:

THE SKILLS I TAUGHT YOU,

AND YOU CAN OUTSMART 'EM.

WHAT AM I MISSING?

WHERE IS THE RING?

WELL, IT'D BE AT THE BOTTOM...

NOT OF THIS BOX.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

THE BIG OLD BAD CEREAL

COMPANY MESSED UP.

SO YOU GRAB ANOTHER BOX.

TOUGH LUCK.

WHERE'S THE RING NOW?

AT THE BOTTOM.

NOW I'VE GOT TO

EAT THE WHOLE BOX.

AND WHERE'S THE RING NOW?

AT THE TOP!

THAT'S RIGHT. YOU SEE,

SOMETIMES, SHAWN,

YOU DON'T HAVE

TO DIG SO DEEP.

ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO

IS TURN SOMETHING UPSIDE DOWN

TO MAKE IT RIGHT-SIDE UP,

AND THEN...

YOU GET YOUR PRIZE.

THANKS, DAD!

EXPLAIN TO ME AGAIN

WHY WE COULDN'T SI IN A RESTAURAN

AND EA LIKE CIVILIZED PEOPLE.

BECAUSE I CARE.

WOW. OKAY.

WE'VE BEEN WORKING CASES

NONSTOP FOR A MONTH.

TO BE HONEST, I'M BURNT.

I JUST WANT TO TAKE A NAP.

I COULDN'T AGREE

WITH YOU MORE, BUDDY.

I THINK WE SHOULD

LAY LOW FOR A BIT.

NO MORE CASES.

OH, I'M SO GLAD

TO HEAR YOU SAY THAT.

I WAS KIND OF WORRIED

ABOUT TELLING YOU.

DON'T BE A SILLY GOOSE.

NOW, WE'VE HAD

A GOOD TALK,

I THINK:

WE BOTH FELT IT,

AND LOOK AT THIS.

HERE WE ARE.

WHAT IS THIS, SHAWN?

OKAY, HERE'S THE THING.

THE POLICE MAY HAVE

FOUND A BODY,

WHICH I MAY HAVE

PICKED UP:

ON MY POLICE SCANNER,

WHICH I MAY HAVE

BROUGHT WITH ME.

NO CASES, SHAWN.

NO CASES.

WE GO IN, WE SEE,

WE SAY HELLO, AND WE LEAVE.

SAY HELLO?

THIS IS A CRIME SCENE.

YOU CAN'T JUS WALK IN THERE.

McNAB!

NABBY!

BUZZ.

BUZZ? SERIOUSLY?

WHY WOULD I TALK TO

ANYBODY NAMED BUZZ?

SHAWN! MY MAN!

WEDDING WEIGHT.

BUT I STILL:

A FEW DAYS?

OH, THAT'S NICE OF YOU.

HE ASKED ME TO GET IT,

BUT...

BUT THIS IS PERFECT.

HEY, DID YOU JUST SIP THAT?
