The Mystery of the Clock Tower, Part 2

“The Mystery of the Clock Tower, Part 2” is episode #668 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on October 9, 2010.


Eugene and Matthew investigate why the clock tower at City Hall seems to be stuck at 11:45. Could it have something to do with the anniversary of a lost love from twenty years ago?



Eugene and Matthew Parker continue to try to stop the city clock from counting down.
Meanwhile Whit talks to Oliver Drevil the manager at Odyssey Bank, about the safety deposit box. This leads to Oliver Drevil's son Andrew Drevil, who installed the security system at the bank. Andrew also cleans the bank and city hall, which makes him the main suspect.
Then Connie, Whit, and Oliver Drevil go to Andrew's room, and find evidence that Andrew is behind the whole computer system count down. When the clock is nearly out of time, Eugene tries to power down the entire city's computer system, but it does not shut off.
In the end Whit and Eugene figure out that it is a big diversion, to cover up Andrew and his father (Oliver Drevil) robbing the bank.
The episode ends with Connie, Whit, Eugene, and Matthew talking about the coverup at the clock tower, and Alicia confessing to Wendy and Michael about the undelivered letters.

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

John Whittaker: That's my cell phone.
Connie Kendall: Sorry, that's mine. Excuse me.
John Whittaker: It's Eugene.
Connie Kendall: Mine's...oh, I don't know who it is.
John Whittaker: Hello?
Oliver Drevil: Don't mind me!
John Whittaker: Hi Eugene!
Connie Kendall: Oh, hi Veronica!

Spencer Hicks: We have a countdown and I don't know if it's to a banquet of flowers, a big laugh, or a bomb!

Oliver Drevil: You can't arrest me, I'm merely conducting a routine check on the system.
John Whittaker: In a ski mask?

Alicia Jennings: I was young, they shouldn't have trusted me to be their delivery girl.
Eugene Meltsner: Still they did. And you were trustworthy, for a time.
Alicia Jennings: One moment of anger. One little mistake.
Eugene Meltsner: Indeed it boggles the mind. We make so many decisions in the course of our lives, most with little consequence. But others, entire lives could be changed from one moment from one act of emotion.
