But Bell tells them that there is nothing missing from the museum. Holmes wants Watson to analyze the scene and state her deductions. Watson is taken aback; but she quickly gathers herself and tells him that the men were chased on to the parking lot and then shot. But the direction, in which the killer ran off, cannot be determined. Holmes tells her that there was no chase at all. Judging by the uniforms, Holmes tells them that one of them is a bad man posing as a guard and the other one is a real security guard. ..

(Slams the jar down catching the bee.) A good detective knows that every task, every interaction, no matter how seemingly benahl, has the potential to contain multitudes. I live my life alert to this possibility. I expect my colleagues to do the same.
