Previously: “Welcome to our headquarters,” Mac greeted the two, “Chris—will you show them to the Operations Center, please?”
Twenty minutes later, Chris returned, “They’re pretty excited about the position, and loved the view out onto Lake Superior!”
“They accepted?” Mac asked.
“Oh yeah—they sure did!”
“Are they just hanging-out?”
“Nope,” Chris laughed, “They’re already at work!”
“They’re already at work!”
“Really?” Mac asked, “You did pretty-well—for a girl!”
Big Mac’s laughter probably could be heard two counties away.
Inside “The Rustic Café” in Canal Park, Duluth, Minnesota… Andy Reed offered jobs to two new men, Brian Wright & Henry Jones—after a thorough interview & background check.
“You need to talk money, Mr. Reed,” Wright replied, “We don’t work for free.”
“That will be determined by Mr. Davenport, gentlemen,” Reed replied, “My experience is that he’ll pay in the fifty-thousand-dollar range to start.”
Season 18—Adventure 3—SEARCHING— Episode 6—Scene 1… Outside “The Rustic Café” in Canal Park, Duluth, Minnesota… Troopers Reade & Mallory (this is a nod to the old Adam-12 TV show’s Reed and Malloy—I couldn’t help myself.)

“Unlikely,” Davenport answered, “But if required—it will be paid on the QT from a bank in the Bahamas.”
“By ‘QT’ you imply it is not-taxed?” Wilson James asked.
“Not a cent,” Davenport replied, “Your W-2 form will not show the extra income as it will also be deposited in your respective Bahamian bank accounts.”
“Perfect,” James replied, “We have a deal.”
“Good,” Davenport said, “I already have a wet-work assignment for you—Mr. Reed will give you the particulars.”
Episode 6—Scene 3… Outside the Engler Tower… Reed gave Wright & James their assignment… “You two have a wet-work assignment.”
“You two have a wet-work assignment.”
“Already?” James replied, “We thought that kind of assignment would seldom be required.:
