Sounds Like a Mystery
“Sounds Like a Mystery” is episode #548 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by John Fornof, and originally aired on October 2, 2004.

Summary

A miniature Statue of Liberty is stolen from the Celebration of Liberty exhibit so Whit, Captain Richard Quinn, and Sgt. Beverly Collins start a unique investigation to figure out who's responsible!

Plot

The "Celebration of Liberty" Traveling Exhibit has come to Odyssey, courtesy of John Avery Whittaker. The primary attraction of this exhibit: an original model of the Statue of Liberty, valued at over $7 million. Unfortunately, the priceless piece of history attracts more than just art-loving citizens, and is stolen right through the fingers of the nationally-recognized Collins Security Agency.

When Sgt. Beverly Collins and the Odyssey Police investigate the crime, it appears that Nick Mulligan may have stolen the figure! Though Nick attempts to shift the blame by lying about his whereabouts, the truth comes out via Whit’s security videotape. Though Nick is proved innocent of the crime, his relationship with Whit is damaged by untruthfulness.

The following morning Whit and Nick arrive at Whit's End and discover that someone has broken in, and stolen the security videotape! However, Whit’s new audio monitoring system comes into play, leading to new suspects, a kidnapping, and an important lesson in truth and trust.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Quotes

Captain Richard Quinn: We just got word that some kid was seen running through the exhibit soon after the bomb went off. He's about 5'8",with curly blonde hair and a green T-shirt that says "I love my barking tree frog".
Nick Mulligan: What?
Sgt. Beverly Collins: I think we've got a suspect. I'll get back to you. Over and out. Nick!

Nick Mulligan: Do we know anyone that sneezes like that?
John Whittaker: I don't recognize it.
Nick Mulligan: If only I could identify that sneeze. I think we could nail this guy!

Captain Richard Quinn: So where's the statue now?
Rodney Rathbone: Right over there.
John Whittaker: What?
Rodney Rathbone: I was using it to hold up the antenna on my TV!

Sgt. Beverly Collins: Quinn! How did he know? Who could've tipped him off?!
Nick Mulligan: <through the phone> That would be me!

Nick Mulligan: Another typical day in Odyssey.
John Whittaker: Yeah.

John Whittaker: You know, it's something I've seen over the years—the truth will set you free, but a lie will always catch you.

Nick Mulligan: I hope I can someday win back that trust you were talkin' about.
John Whittaker: Nick, you're well on your way.
