I Love Trouble

The train crashes, the son dies,
and the briefcase is stolen.

The kid who stole it is murdered,
but before he dies he writes
the initials "LD" on his palm.

LD means LDF, and LDF means
a billion dollars a year.

So you tell me.
All this adds up to...

Good morning, everyone,
and welcome to Chess Chemical.

Our first stop on today's tour
will be the Chess Family
Science Discovery Centre.

Now, as we walk in pairs
down the Biology of Tomorrow corridor...

I'd like to point out some of the
everyday products created here at Chess.

For example, the cold medicine
that I forgot to take this morning...

as well as the disposable diapers
I used for my little one last night.

Now, as we continue on...
Extension 307 is a 72-year-old
cafeteria worker named Sadie.

Hair net,
orthopaedic shoes.

Are you sure?
Maybe it was 3-0-something else.

No, no, no. I'm positive.
Here, look.

Well, do you wanna get out of here,
or take a stroll down
the Biology of Tomorrow corridor?

Rule number one of
investigative reporting, Peterson,
is find out what you're up against.

- Let's stroll.
- What's rule number two?

Stay clear of all surveillance cameras
when visiting the lair of the enemy.

- Thank you.
- No problem.

- Wilson Chess.
- Sabrina Peterson.

- And Mr Peterson?
- Actually, the name's Brackett.

Peter Brackett,
the writer.

Of course. Well, what brings you
to this neck of the woods?

I'm doin' a little research
on a new novel, Wilson.

You're kidding?
What, here at Chess?

- Mm-hmm.
- What's the new one about?

It's a murder mystery set against
the backdrop of a chemical company.

Sounds intriguing, but I'm always
a sucker for a good murder yarn.

- Aren't you, Miss Peterson?
- As long as the bad guy gets
it in the end, I'm happy.

W-Well, have fun.
And don't forget to change
the names to protect the innocent.

So much for rule number three:
Avoid insulting...

the men who may be trying
to kill you.
