    Dot has been to hell and back. Thought that the end was nigh

    Held under a threat of death, while “Tonsils” made the buy.

    Now she is free. Can clearly see that all the world’s a stage

    Time now to go. On with the show! Farewell to fear and rage.

    Sam and Lizz are on the case with skills and smarts to spare

    Detectives quick to smell a rat in Cawlie’s sketchy lair.

    You have the right. Keep mouth shut tight. As silent as the grave

    Or sing a song. You can’t go wrong. Your own skin you shall save.

    Good morning™, everyone!

    It looks like 22ph was the first to figure out the chair angle yesterday. Someone tipped off the police. It’s good to see that Sam puts the evidence into a plastic evidence bag and doesn’t just stuff it into his pocket. Scott, the clerk, is in a lot of trouble now!

    “Please do”? You want these low-level players to babble their guts out.

    Well, that’s about the size of the package Coffey got from Matt. Wonder who the big supplier is?

    Good morning™, who ya gonna call ?  Dope Busters !

    I’m glad someone could read the sales guy’s name as “Scott”. I wouldn’t have given it much scrutiny and would be enlarging the image to gargantuan to easily see it, tho’ I can make it out since attention being called to it.

    I like that Lizzy is in the picture and the snarly look on Sam’s puss when he tells the schmo, “Please do”.

    So how the $^%$ did they figure out that Coffyhead was hiding them in the chairs?!!! No sense, no sense at all!

    Wow! That was fast. They went from finding nothing on Coffy to knowing just where to look. Maybe they were keeping an eye on his delivery truck and got suspicious that a coffee truck was delivering furniture. That’s what I meant yesterday when I said “drugs, chairs, and coffee?” Why would a coffee truck be delivering chairs? Matt may not have known about Coffy’s operation, but it sure looks like Tracy did.

    This is a bit of a leap.

    One: Can Sam do what he did – damaging property – without a search warrant?

    Two: Did Scott know the actual contents of the chair? As in, why is he being arrested?

    Stating the fact that the chairs were previously purchased is not a suspicious act.

    Kind of like what sugordon said, above.

    You can arrest someone at the scene of a crime or criminal activity and always release them later if they’re found not to be involved. And I’m betting Sam or Lizz had a warrant.

    I am thinking Curtis will be more definitive in linking this particular event to his story at large…but it’s not much of a mental leap to do so from here. His story is a good one with rolling wheels, that has yet to veer off of the road. He’ll fill in the few plot holes along the way.

    The price of the chairs was a give away to Sam which ones had the stuff in them. Can they trace this to Coffyhead now?

    Geez, imagine that….not only does the MCU piece together, WITHOUT (apparently) the benefit of evidence…exactly WHAT Coffyhead’s business is, but they ALSO manage to figure out exactly which chairs are being sold, where theyre being sold, and how many of them

    So… Apparently they were looking for a new driver to make ‘furniture’ deliveries at exactly the time Matt could have told the police about Javaface’s drug business? Quite a coincidence. Coincidence, a deus ex machina used way too often.

    “Yeah, sure.”

    On a sidebar, I wonder if anyone has made a point of cutting out the Crimestoppers’ Textbook pages over the years to actually compile a textbook.

    Luckily, Sam didn’t cut into the chairs that have hidden south of the border folks sewn into them. That Coffy uses his “chair trick” for all sorts of smuggling.

    1-SCOTT: Has anyone ever told you that you’re too hot for your mud-fence husband? What is he – rich or something?

    DOLL: He’s got an enormous… SAM: HOT DOG!!! I FOUND IT!

    2-SCOTT: Don’t touch the merchandise please.

    3-SAM: I better check the padding for quality. Don’t worry. I brought an Exacto Knife and I’ll cut carefully along the seam…

    4-…Oops. My palsy kicked in I guess. Well now, how do you explain this?

    5-DOLL: You in a heap a trouble now boy! SCOTT: I’m not involved in the manufacturing process. I just sell ‘em. Uh…could I see a badge?

    SAM: Badyas? We don’t need no stinking badyas!

    DOLL: HA! Now do your Dirty Harry, Sam!

    SAM: I just did. SCOTT: What? DOLL: What? SAM: What?

    So, mowing the lawn is clearly very, very bad for me. Why else would I wonder when we get a twitchy, evil lawyer(who clearly buys a LOT of chairs) named Atticus Flake in here?

    While it won’t be shown, chances are that when he gets to court, this guy will say he was entrapped.

    Most of the “how’d they do that”-type questions asked above would be reasonably answered if the New Driver for Coffy Imports were in fact an undercover cop/informant. He would know which chairs, at which retailer, and what they contained, if he’d done a little snooping….
