Arriving at the police station with the detainees, Costello meets up with his old pal Lt. Sam Bosley (Lou Bedford) who wishes Costello would return to the police force. Costello, however, is having too much fun running his own private detective agency. Actually, business is a bit slow as evidence by the crooked sign outside his building and the fact he has a running gig playing the saxophone at the Blue Monkey. But Jack’s investigative instincts haven’t lessened in the down time though and he soon has the sketching stranger following him around handcuffed to the toilet in his apartment. The man says he is a cartoonist named Jean Philippe Dumas and explains that he wants to capture Jack for a comic book. Or, as he so simply puts it, “rediscover the mythical hero whose fascination still haunts the collective imagination.” Uh, yeah. He pleads to follow Jack for just three days to get some research and amusingly dubs his muscular muse “Extralarge.” Are we sure he doesn’t have any ulterior motives?
Wait...this guy makes a living as a cartoonist?
American flag? Check! Empty jacuzzi? Check! White dude? Check!
Yeah, this guy is totally the villain.
