The Policewoman: Dean Higgins, here's a thought, if the dog came back in only fifteen minutes, why don't you send the dog out to look for the boy?
Mercedes: Professor Quigley's here to pick up his severence check.
Dean Higgins: Professor Quigley, hmm? Well you inform Professor Quigley that we don't give out severence checks anymore.
Dean Higgins: But we always give out severance checks.
Dean Higgins: Well, we don't anymore! We just ran out of money!
Dean Higgins: I know he's been kidnapped. How do I know? Because he's been gone for the last three hours looking for his dog.
The Policewoman: Sir, a boy looking for his dog isn't so unusual.
Dean Higgins: It is when the dog got back two hours and forty-five minutes ago.
