He also befriends an aging lady who's young at heart, but is afraid of losing her wild side due to her fading eyesight. Meanwhile, Miss Parker is spending time in jail for violating criminal code 369.7 - Unlawful Carrying and Possession of Concealed Weapon, thanks to a tip from Jarod.

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Jarod uses the police code "10-19" to indicate to Sydney his status as a "missing person." Ten-codes vary from one police department to another; however, there is no evidence that any police department in North Carolina--or anywhere else in the U.S., for that matter--uses 10-19 as a code for "missing person."

      • The newspaper articles in Jarod's notebook contain text unrelated to the headlines. For example, under the subhead "Local Woman Praised as a Hero," the opening paragraph of the story reads, "The 'mound of paperwork' was places in front of the door to prevent anyone from entering the Coast Guard offices before they could talk to the officer involved and force him to keep quiet. Great big puppies and teeny tiny kittens are the focus of a national probe here in Irvine this week."

      • Sheriff: Ma'am, you're under arrest for violation of criminal code 369.7.
        Miss Parker: And what the hell is that?
        Sydney: Carrying a concealed weapon. Says so right here in the book. Highlighted in yellow.

        The North Carolina concealed carry law is actually N.C. Statute 14-269.

      • Jarod's Pretends: Police Officer & Canadian Mountie

      • Jarod's Discoveries: doughnuts & doughnut holes.

      • Jarod receives information about his mother that was traced back to The Centre. We never see what that information is, because Miss Parker burns it.
