Integral, Pip, and the Wild Geese can’t find the vampire they’ve been tailing for a week. Walter can’t find another speck of dirt to clean up. Alucard can’t find a good fight. Seras – well, Seras has found a stray cat, but that’s not going to help anyone. Or is it?
[SLAM] Walter: Oh my…You look like something the cat dragged in. Seras: It’s raining. Walter: Rain? In England? My word. Seras: Grr… Walter: Don’t worry; we’re used to it.
Seras: Sir Integra! Officer Victoria, ready to report! [yawn] [nok nok] [rub rub] [swish] [smooth smooth] [flick] Integra: Come in. Seras (thinking): She’s been up all night too! How has she not lost any of that poise?
Integra: Straighten up and give your report, Police Girl. Seras: Sorry, sir. It’s just…it’s pouring and I’ve been out all night…and I’m soaked and… …Captain Bernadette… Integra: Say no more.

Seras (thinking): I should put this away. I wonder where the laundry is?… I could find Walter…but he’s probably asleep…maybe I should just wait until it dries and put it in my laundry basket…Huh? [me-yeeew]
Integra (thinking): Uh. Alucard: You’ll never sort it out without sleeping first. Integra: Your riddles, you mean. Alucard: The flaw in your analysis. The reason why you didn’t catch the vampire. Integra: And I suppose you know what it is? Alucard: Of course.
Integra: Right, then — tell me. Alucard: If you go get some rest, I will. Integra: I don’t negotiate with vampires. … …However, as I’ll be retiring now regardless, you might as well explain.
Integra: I don’t approve of your meddling around in my dreams, Alucard. Alucard: But, Master, this way you can sleep and converse at the same time. It’s efficient. You ought to approve. Integra: It’s also an efficient way of provoking me. Alucard: That too.
