Episode Summary

EDIT
Metamorphic Anthropoidic Prototype Over You
AIRED:
Austin is called in to help with investigating a claim that a "mape" (a Metamorphic Anthropoidic Prototype - i.e., an intelligent monkey) is as intelligent as its sponsor, Dr. Hardwork, claims. Josephine, the mape, is indeed incredibly smart, at nearly human levels. However, an animal activist breaks into Austin's warehouse where Josephine is being kept, and is found dead, shot to death. There seem no obvious culprits, and Austin discovers that Josephine was enhanced through illegal brain surgery. However, he also deduces that Josephine herself is the murderer: having learned such behavior from watching television shows. Austin manages to rescue Micky just before a jealous Josephine can kill her too, and regretfully, the mape is put to sleep.moreless

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Mickey: In that hard spot you call your heart, Austin James, there is a marshmallow the size of a Ritz.

      • Mickey: How can a man who knows so much about the universe know so little about people?
        Austin: The universe is nothing but a dynamic system encompassing everything in the space/time continuum. It's easier to understand than people... and just as impossible to change.

      • Michelle: A science groupie. I have seen everything.
        Austin: She's obviously done a lot of work on this. We have to encourage young minds, Micki. Give them a chance to tap our brains.
        Michelle: I think she may want to tap more than your brain.
