wednesday and friday of last week? that's what we think, yeah. i was at a wedding in curacao last week. left monday, landed at jfk middle of the day friday. i'm telling the truth! i was at the ceremony! you can ask the bridesmaids i hit on. it's as we suspected. brendan farley's three-quarter alibi is 100% percent true. he was harassing bridesmaids in curacao. so, it wasn't him. who else wanted joaquin pereya dead because he made a lucrative breakthrough in the field of cultured meat? well, i'm already going through the company reports for next century meats. i think you're bored with recovery because you're not saying what's on your mind. what's on my mind is that i'm bored. and that's exactly what you need to be talking about. that, and everything else you said yesterday. including the bit about being the smartest person in the room? see, recovery only works if you say what you're thinking. those people in the room, whatever their i.q. is, they've been through a lot.
they can handle you being an arrogant jerk. i mean, will it be awkward? probably, but when's that ever stopped you? it's a better way to re-engage. i worked with a lot of clients before, and... every time sometimes tries to go it alone, it always ends badly. s... ♪ ♪ holmes: watson, you may want to compose yourself before coming downstairs. a salon of sorts is in progress. (man chuckles) it's so new! aye, so true, so true. now, we eat, uh, eggs, yes? these are cells taken from an animal. the chicken is presumably still alive. (laughter)
that's an interesting example. mm-hmm. man: oh, good morning. now, if we could only find those chickens. (laughter) (laughter echoes) (humming) watson: why is there some sort of world peace convocation going on upstairs? those are leading scholars of their respective faiths. we've had a very productive morning. we reached conclusions on some knotty issues. and now it's time to eat. jews and muslims are united by more than conflict, watson. both groups have labored under dietary restrictions for millennia. including very strict guidelines over the slaughter and consumption of meat. why would someone doctor research to prevent a lucrative breakthrough from being labeled as such? only, i now believe, if it was more profitable to have another label. are you familiar with the word pareve? uh, it's a kosher thing, right? mm. the laws of kashrut state that permissible foods are divided into groups-- dairy, meat. but there's a third classification. pareve. water is pareve.
carrots are pareve. okay, so pareve is like... neutral? exactly, it's the switzerland of food. now, if shmeat is ruled to be actual meat, that obviously opens up the carnivore market, but it also subjects it to the gordian knot of halal and kosher certification. if it is a mere meat substitute, then it sits, forlorn, in the vegan aisle. but if shmeat can thread the needle, if it can be actual lab-grown meat, but not be classified as such... it would be pareve, neutral to the kosher and halal rules about meat. imagine, watson. observant jews finally being allowed a cheeseburger. religious muslims indulging in pulled-pork cubanos. there is what? over a billion muslims in the world. it's a huge untapped market. probably way more profitable for them to not label shmeat as meat. hence the doctored research. so, if joaquin pereya wasn't on board for faking the data, that would mean that whoever's in charge of that place
would have reason to kill him. and that would be... werner platz, ceo of next century meats. can we prove he was involved? we can if his coconspirator will talk to us. mr. farley, thank you so much for coming on short notice. i thought i already answered your questions. well, we had one set of questions for you when we thought that you killed joaquin pereya. we no longer think that. oh, okay. good. we now think that you were part of a conspiracy to kill him. after you. bell: this is the intersection of 65th street and metropolitan avenue. street racers use this stretch of metropolitan. a concerned citizen tried to catch some of their license plates on camera. she overheard a patrolman asking for security camera footage, volunteered to share this. am i supposed to be looking at something? bell: that's your boss, werner platz. so? mr. farley, that intersection is a half block away
from brooklyn's best wurst. this footage was gathered the same night someone broke into the store and ground joaquin pereya into so much mince. we can place your boss right by the scene, on the night it happened. i've also had an informal peek at your banking records. "informal peek"? what does that mean? it means i have friends who are digitally nimble. don't look at him. he had nothing to do with it. we'll get an authorized look soon enough. they'll show a judge what we already know. someone recently paid your mortgage in full. it was paid by a third party. we're already trying to link that to your boss. what does that have to do with joaquin? bell: werner platz wanted mr. pereya to alter his... shmeat so the fda would classify it as a meat substitute. then he could sell it to the kosher and halal markets. watson: but pereya was a true believer. he cared more about disrupting the meat industry than he did about the profits. he wouldn't make the change. so, platz killed pereya and found himself a cringing mediocrity who would take a fee to alter the data.
and that was you, mr. farley. bell: testify against werner platz. i already offered you one chance to get in front of this. you won't get another. and if i say no, what happens? you take that video to a judge. all that shows is werner driving down the street. why'd he pay my mortgage? 'cause i'm a great employee and i just got a promotion. you guys have nothing on me and i'm pretty sure you've got nothing on werner or you wouldn't be trying to get me to turn on him. it was a nice try, guys, but i'm going to leave my lawyer's number. don't call me again. so, brendan farley and werner platz killed a man and ground him into sausage... and not only do they get to walk free... they'll both be rich the moment the shmeat hits the market. god bless america.
to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain... they'll both be rich the moment the shshoots and burnsrket. its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes ordinary tasks extraordinarily painful, i hear you. make sure your doctor hears you too! i hear you because i was there when my dad suffered with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence! step on up and ask your doctor about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you.

we'll canvass the neighborhood near the meat shop again tomorrow. perhaps we missed someone who saw werner platz carrying a body down the stairs. the patrolman went door to door twice. it's my party. i'll clean up. you should rest. you seem a little tense. i'm frustrated. uh, we found the people who broke into the leviathan. we arrested half of le milieu to get your brother off the hook. we brought down moriarty. i mean, these guys are not criminal geniuses. they're just a couple of idiots who killed for money. granted, it's not the perfect crime, but occasionally, criminals walk free due to dumb luck.
it's not a... perfect universe, is it, watson? well, that sounds like giving up. i mean, i know no one's quitting. i-i just hate that these guys are getting away with it. we might not be able to prove our case in court... but that doesn't mean we can't punish them. what, are you gonna whip them with a cherry danish? no, i'm going to use this. we need to reconvene the council of rabbis and imams. do you seriously think this is gonna work? i have no earthly idea. morning. we'd like to see the coconspirators in the murder of joaquin pereya. our lawyers are on their way here. i'm gonna do everything i can to sue you two for harassment. gentlemen, we have unearthed no new evidence against you. despite our best efforts, we are unable to prove that the two of you murdered joaquin pereya. then what are you doing here? we can make a compelling circumstantial argument that you are guilty and we did last night...
to the convocation of orthodox rabbis and the i.c.h., their equivalent in the muslim faith. are you familiar with those bodies? they're the ones who will be deciding whether or not your shmeat can be sold to the halal and kosher communities. they asked us to pass on a message. murder is not kosher. oh? and what is that supposed to mean? we demonstrated to the satisfaction of various religious worthies that your shmeat became eligible to be pareve by virtue of foul play. the imams and the rabbis have got no intention of rewarding murder. they're never gonna bless you with the labels that you seek and they're going to use their influence to see to it that other certifying bodies follow their lead. you can still sell it in the vegan aisle, but good luck staying in business. so, this is some kind of retribution. you are going to rob the world of our product because you can't prove your insane theories. maybe your shmeat will go to market. maybe it won't. the rabbis and imams have agreed to change their minds on one condition: someone has to be convicted of joaquin pereya's murder.
i don't understand. but we don't need you to. our appeal is to mr. farley. he committed the actual murder. ground a corpse into sausage meat. all you did was fake some data. watson: when we explained that to our captain, he called the d.a. they're willing to be flexible. in exchange for your testimony, they will arrange a plea that sees you serve no jail time. holmes: he'll be convicted of joaquin pereya's murder. the shmeat will be, uh, deemed kosher and halal and you can participate in the profits while he rots in jail. brendan, don't listen to them. for all you know, they're bluffing. or you can remain united in relative penury. i mean, you know, he's really good to his partners. he skinned the last one and, uh... ground him into sausage. it's your choice, mr. farley. newswoman: details of a shocking crime continue to emerge as ceo, werner platz, is arrested for the murder of joaquin pereya, the chief scientist at his company. so, one coconspirator
gets off nearly scot-free in exchange for which the other is imprisoned for murder. satisfactory outcome? i'll take it. it's a random universe. ...of the actual murder... where are you going? a meeting. will you be following me to confirm? do i need to? ♪ life is like a storm ♪ when we find out, it's gone... ♪ if no one else wants to share, we'll wrap up for tonight. okay, then. yes. it's nice to see you again. please. thanks. uh...
