I walked in. "So you've got another one for me"
The Captain gave me a nod. "Yup."
"Where is she?"
"In the room, as usual." The Captain pointed to the holding room.
"Is that really necessary?"
The Captain just shrugged. "The only colder than that room at the moment is the table and chair."
I didn't want to do this yet again. But the Captain handed me the clipboard. "Stick to the script."

I walked in. She was clearly as uncomfortable as I was. Even more so like she was cuffed to the chair.
"So you're .... Miss ... " I finally looked at the bio. For once, the picture matched the perp.
She nodded as she got a look at the binder on the clipboard. At least she was honest.
"So, how are you doing today?"
*mumble*
"I didn't quite catch that."
She looked up and meekly said "Ok."
For the next 20 minutes, I asked a string of routine questions. She just answered yes or no to all of them. She refused to give any real details about herself. Not like the bio had much for me to work with anyways.
Even though the Captain was on the other side of the 1 way mirror, I could hear and feel the frustration coming from him. I heard a barely audible *click* from the other side. A bright spotlight now shone in her face. This was my cue.
I hated this part. I really did.
I looked to her more intently. "So, what was the last movie you saw?"
She barely mumbled this time.
"Was the plot any good?"
She just stared at me blankly.
"The acting? How was the acting?"
Her lip startled to quiver. I could see her starting to sweat.
"Any special effects?"
She started fidgeting in her chair.
"Did you have popcorn?"
She squirmed.
I slammed down on the table with both hands. "WAS IT BUTTERED OR UNBUTTERED?!?!?!?"
She broke down crying. She told us everything.

I walked out and the Captain greeted me. "You did good kid. Too bad she ain't the 1."
"What? That was 'good'? C'mon Cap, there has to be another way?"
Are you questioning my insanity or my incompetence?
Some seek refuge in audacity. I seek refuge in absurdity.

The Captain shook his head. "Not these days kid. But don't worry, you'll find the 1. Then put them away for life."
I could only let out a sad laugh. "Yeah. 1 day. Maybe."

We flipped through for the next bio. This is going to be a long investigation.
