Benny sent me . . .

"Ken, call on line two."

"Thanks, Mabel."

Pick up phone. "Deputy Commonwealth Attorney Lammers. How can I help you?"

Citizen: "Yeah, well, Benny told me to call you."

Benny? Who the heck is Benny? Wait a sec . . .

"Do you mean Captain Jones?" (You know, the guy who has spent his last 22 years in law enforcement, been shot in the line of duty, and has worked tirelessly to stomp out any hint of corruption in Pitcairn and its police force.)

Citizen (sounding puzzled): "Yeah, you know, Benny . . ."
