tl by danluffey
2: First PJ, then that girl in the elevator...
3: Helmut... what are you trying to do?!
4: What happened? Did she jump off?!
5: Hurry up and call an ambulance!
6: A passer-by got injured!
7: No matter how much I put myself in danger,
8: Oh no! This person's dead too!
9: I'm going to drag you out of the darkness, if it's the last thing I do!
10: And then...
11: and then I'll rip you to shreds with my bare hands!!
SIGN: Detective Office
3: /To the unsuspecting eye...
4: /PJ, that elevator girl,
5: /and that lawyer
6: /all had perfectly normal deaths...
1: /But Ms. Kate's death
2: /was too unnatural. It couldn't have been suicide.
3: I don't get it!
4: Occult stuff doesn't really exist in this world, does it?!
5: It's two in the morning.
6: Who could that be?
1: Hello? This is P...
3: /It isn't PJ's anymore...
4: This is Rosie Harriet's Detective Office.
SFX: WHOOO... RATTLE
5: I was sorry to hear about your friend.
7: /Ah... that German accent!
8: But even without him, I would still like this case to be solved, of course.
9: If you are up to it, that is.
11: It's our motto here to leave no case unsolved.
1: If I happen to find this Helmut guy, what do you intend to do with him?
2: That man made a promise with me. He need to fulfill his end of the deal.
3: A promise?!
4: What kind of a promise? Couldn't that be why he disappeared?!
SFX: WHOOO FLAP
2: What's going on?!
4: Ku ku ku...
7: Wh-who the hell are you?!
2: The wind...
SFX: RATTLE WHOOO
5: Huh, that's weird. The window's shut tight.
8: It... it's glowing?!
10: My body...
1: Stop it!!
2: What's going on here?!
3: Help me!
4: You need to stay alive!
SFX: CHIRP TWEET
5: Ahh... PJ...
6: It was just a dream...
1: It's gone...
4: Heheheh... I must be going crazy.
5: Looks like I drank a little too much of PJ's cheap wine.
6: /A promise...
7: /That man said he made a promise with Helmut...
8: /Was that just part of my dream too?
1: Hello? Rosie? It's me. You're late! I thought you'd given me the slip.
2: Two pizzas? Umm...
3: This is the police...
4: Why would I want to give you the slip, Ben?
5: I was just taking a shower.
6: You were sniffing around yesterday, weren't you?
7: I feel bad about what happened to PJ, but... you at that accident in the RCA Building elevator and at the scene when that secretary committed suicide, weren't you?
8: Sorry, but that's confidential, officer.
1: We cannot see you unless you have an appointment, sir.
2: Even for, say... $5,000?
SFX: KLAK KLAK
3: If you would like to make a deposit, please go to the counter on the first floor.
4: But people who make big deposits get to meet with your boss, don't they? Like... John MacDougall, for example!
5: $5,000 is not what we consider a "big deposit."
6: Guess I have to be as big as Helmut, huh?
1: Alright then, I'll just give this $5,000 to you.
3: Hah! That got you to look me in the eyes.
5: Hey, how about going out with me on a date sometime?
6: Oh my...
7: I... I'm not interested in younger men.
8: I've just got a baby face. I'm really 44.
2: I'm going out to dinner. Call the usual place for me.
3: Yes sir.
4: Is that guy with the goatee your boss?
5: So? When's our date?
8: Umm... oh yeah...
9: (pitter patter
10: I have to go make a call!
12: What's the big idea?!
2: Are you George MacDougall?
3: Y-yes, why?
4: Mr. Hartman passed away yesterday.
6: Would you mind answering a few questions about Helmut's account?
1: You mean Helmut intended to disappear from the beginning?
2: Most likely.
3: After three years, he started withdrawing $4,000 from his account per month.
4: Who's this Christine Schwartz lady?
5: I don't know that much.
6: Probably someone connected to him.
1: /So he did have a lover.
2: /And she stayed here in the Plaza Hotel...
3: /Christine Schwartz...
4: /The mistress of the Prince of Hell...
5: CLINK CLINK
6: /What kind of a woman is she?
1: /Whatever the case... I think I've got you now, Helmut!
5: You're the detective I just spoke to on the phone?!
6: Well this is a surprise... I guess Helmut really did have a thing for virgins.
8: Helmut! Your sugar daddy.
10: Sugar daddy?
1: Don't play dumb. I know all about him...
2: Now, will you let me in, or do we have to go down to the lounge?
4: Sorry, but I'm on my way to class right now...
5: (Who is this guy?
6: And besides, I've never even heard of anyone called Helmut.
8: I've heard of Helmut the rock star, though.
9: Now you're talking!
1: Really? But I've never even met him!
2: If I did, I'd probably faint! He's such a big star!
3: But he's the one depositing all that money into your account each month, you know. I'm sure of it.
4: That must be some kind of mistake.
5: Who's depositing it, then?
6: I'm... not really sure...
7: According to my mom, it's from savings that a rich distant relative left to us.
1: Where are your parents now?
2: They both passed away. My dad died nine years ago, and my mom died three years ago.
3: Hmm... and then you started living in this luxury hotel by yourself?
4: I only moved here six months ago. I lived in a Swiss dormitory until I turned 18.
5: In Switzerland?!
6: Even there, Helmut was all the rage.
7: A Swiss dormitory...
8: /Hahaha... guess that rules out the "lover" theory.
1: My dad was also a singer. In Germany. He didn't really ever get too popular, though.
2: In Germany?
3: My mother was American, so right after my father died I stayed in Switzerland and my mother came here.
4: So your whole family got split up...
5: Not necessarily. I spent time with my mother whenever she took a vacation...
6: Do you have any older brothers?
7: Maybe a half-brother or something?
8: How rrude!
9: My parents were both devout Catholics, you know!
1: Hey, Christine! What's wrong?
2: Nothing! Let's go, Dave!
3: Who was that?
4: I don't know!
5: Be careful, Christine. There are a lot of guys out there who'd jump at a chance to get a piece of your fortune.
6: I'm not as dumb as you think I am!
1: Could've fooled me.
2: How does she intend to survive in New York, of all places?
3: I barely know her, and I'm already worried!
4: Germany... her father's a singer... and her mother died three years ago...
1: /Looks like I'll have to go back to that bank again...
2: /There's no way she could have been his lover...
4: Get back! Get back!
6: /You're kidding me, right?
1: Everyone, keep moving!
2: /Not again...
3: What happened?!
4: Someone broke the roof of the 102 building and jumped out.
5: Jumped out?!
7: That's right. Those skyscraper windows can't be broken so easily, you know.
8: It... it's you!
9: This is all your fault!
11: You followed him,didn't you? What did you do to him?!
12: You mean...
1: Tell me what you did to him! Tell me!
2: I didn't do anything wrong! I was just...
3: /I'm sick and tired of seeing this happen!
1: /I've almost died numerous times myself...
2: /Oh no!
3: /He's in danger!
5: Wait! You're just going to run away?!
1: /Th... this is...
2: /There's no way they could spin this as an accident or suicide! No one could kill themselves this way!
3: /And this was the wall that once had Helmut's face on it...
4: It's like
5: he cursed it.
1: /He cursed it.
2: Rosie! You need to stay alive
4: /No! I'm not going to believe in some stupid curse! I'm a detective!
6: Get a hold of yourself! Who did this? You saw him, didn't you? You saw someone here!
7: I didn't...
8: I didn't see anyone! He told me in the morning not to let anyone in. Then this happened!
9: Someone must have killed him, though!
1: Someone's trying to keep me from digging up information on Helmut...
2: /PJ, the back-up chorus girl, the lawyer's secretary, the banker, and now this record company guy... and...
3: /And Christine!
4: /Oh no! What am I doing here?!
5: Don't move!!
1: W... wait! I'm a private detective!
2: Shut up and put your hands on the desk, you murderer!!
3: Are you blind?!
4: I just ran in here! How could I have killed him?!
5: Just do as I say!
1: I don't have time for this!
2: Someone else may die while we're doing this!
3: A private detective, huh? Gimme a break. A kid like you?
4: Spread your legs!
5: Stand still. You hear me?
6: /He's by himself... I really can't let this happen...
4: Stop or we'll shoot!
1: Wait! Don't shoot! Don't kill him!
3: Outta my way! I don't have time for this!
1: Son of a bitch!
3: Listen to me, Rosie. You need to make good friends with the people around you. As a detective, we get the best business when those friends have problems with each toher.
5: You need to help them when they need you. Especially cops.
1: Looks like you had a nice rest, Rosie.
2: Aaa... choo!
3: Looks PJ really found himself a nice heir.
4: Why am I behind steel bars?
5: Don't make me wipe your ass TOO much now, kid. What the hell were you doing there, anyway?
6: And if I hear the word "confidential" again, so help me...
2: I need to go!
4: Not until I get some answers!
5: What time is it now? Did you find a new body yet?
6: Not yet...
7: Please let me make a phone call, Ben.
9: What, you want to call your lawyer?!
1: What? What are you going on about? I'm fine! Perfectly fine!
2: I'm doing my aerobics right now!
7: That's great.
8: Do you mind if I come over?
9: Um... sure... wait an hour, though.
10: A college girl, huh?
11: Doing AEROBICS?!
1: A college girl in a leotard! Wooowee!
2: Here he goes...
3: I'm doing this for your own good.
4: Dead bodies have been following you around -- this could be some killer making it all look like an accident.
5: How could you get so deep into this without even giving me a single phone call?!
6: And remember -- it's only thanks to me that you aren't getting arrested for this!
7: I expect some gratitude, Rosie!
1: (Hah!) You sure know how to sound wholesome... (I know you're just after the college girl!)
2: (Uheheh! Now, now, don't be like that...)
1: What was that?!
4: W-wait! Rosie!
2: Are you alright?! Are you still alive?!
3: Hurry up and get a fire extinguisher!
1: You're right... I really should take up jogging.
2: The detective...?
3: You just got a few scrapes. It's a miracle, Christine!
4: You're really a lucky person.
6: Oh no!
7: My mother's memoir!
10: Hey, get back here!
11: Are you trying to kill yourself?!
1: Christine! Where are you?!
2: (Oww! Hothot!
3: What are you doing in here?!
4: Bring this out!
6: I can't hold on anymore!
7: You can do it, Ben!
8: I'm going on ahead!
1: /The flames aren't touching either of us...
3: Someone, give me water!
