File 2: "The Formula for a Successful Social"
-We open with Miyuki, Natsumi & Saori detouring traffic at a bridge exit and while Miyuki issues a citation to a driver for not wearing his seatbelt (With some friendly persuasion by Natsumi), Saori goes toe-to-toe with Scooter Mama over her wanting to ride over the bridge (Scooters are prohibited from the bridge). It might be better if you don't block traffic while arguing, don't you think?
-Yoriko's last social didn't go so well, eh? She's planned another one with "Media types" as the theme & already a couple of other female cops want in on it. Meanwhile, you didn't need to be so gung-ho about Scooter Mama, Saori-Take it a little easier, will you?
-Yoriko needs 1 more for the social & since Miyuki, Natsumi & Saori are all busy that leaves...Aoi?
-Back on patrol...What, you didn't know that Natsumi has a boyfriend, Saori? Meanwhile, a truck driver's load has spilled, causing a backup-Let's help him reload his truck before you cite him, Saori! BTW, the driver's name is Calros Rossi (Carlos?) & he also needs directions to a place he's moving to since he's new here in Japan. Of course we'll help!
-Moving-in soba as thanks? Don't mind if we do-C'mon Saori, it won't hurt to have some & if anything happens, we'll be notified!
-Some late info from the Chief: Be aware that several women have been robbed over the past few days with the robber stealing the woman's valuables while she's drunk. Ok, ok Saori, we get it-The officers here have become too lax & need to get with it! And please, DON'T go to the Chief of Police-Too many salaries depend on it!
-Yoriko, Aoi & a couple of others are off to the social while Saori stays to work overtime...An arson call? Saori's the only one there so she answers the call. Oh BTW, that guy on the rappelling rope outside the window is Lt. Toukairin-Could you watch the office while I answer the call?
-A quick drive to the scene finds that it's only Calros & his friend burning some trash but the fire department's not too keen on them doing that. Meanwhile, Miyuki & Natsumi return from patrol only to find Toukairin watching the office. He & Natsumi were supposed to go out for dinner anyway so Miyuki volunteers to finish up so that they can go. After they leave, Miyuki is startled by Ken's sudden appearance & stumbles on a chair, Ken tries to catch her before she falls and...Well...No Saori, it's not what you think!
-Yoriko's social last night was a bust, not because the men were zeroes (They weren't-All handsome & well-dressed) but because they all gravitated to Aoi! Maybe Saori should go to at least experience a social one time...But how to get her to go? Miyuki & Natsumi are coming too since Yoriko included them in her headcount for the next social (Elite businessmen working for foreign corporations). An undercover investigation-Saori will go for that!
-Toukairin, doesn't it bother you that Natsumi is going to a social?? So you trust her, huh...Never mind the J-League tickets! We're going too!
-How about this? Turns out the elite businessmen are Calros & his friends!
BTW, Saori gets drunk pretty easily, doesn't she?
-We had a nice time, didn't we? Wait-Where's Saori? She slipped out some time ago & is at a bar where a nice-looking young man has been buying her drinks-The thief that the Chief said to be on the lookout for! As the others look for her, the thief finally gets Saori alone in a park where he turns off her cell & grabs her wallet-But Saori won't let him leave! Calros & his friends find Saori first & keep the thief from getting away until the others arrive.
-You know, at times Ken can be really cool...Nice throw, Ken! And yes, the guy that was with Saori was the serial thief. Nice work, Saori! Want to come on another social?
