    Takeuchi: I’m sorry, Uncle!
    Nasu: All right, now that Daisuke is asleep, the Great Reasoning begins! …Anyway, it’s not like they have logic battles at the scene of the crime or anything, but occasionally Daisuke likes to hear what Mikiya has to say as a third party observer.

    Q:事件のことを幹也に色々と話していた大輔さんですが、幹也はひょっとして今まで大輔さんのブレーン的なことをやってたんですか?

    武:おっちゃん、ごめん!
    奈:でた、眠りの大輔、名推理の始まりや!……と、現場で推理合戦する事はありませんが、たまに第三者の意見として聞いていたようです。

    Takeuchi: Stuck in a hierarchical organization beyond all imagination… and yet, able to talk so casually about marriage. Even Daisuke has a story, huh?

    Q:大輔さんは、刑事として優秀なのでしょうか?「犯人はこの中にいます!」的な解決をしたりするのですか?

    武:優秀かどうかは兎も角、生涯出世は出来ないタイプではありそう。
    奈:刑事としては優秀だけど、警察官としては不向き。
    縦社会である警察で"結婚相手を決めるのにど一して上の顔色うかがわないといけねえのよと言った時点で彼の出世の道は断たれたのであった。
    武:想像を絶する縦社会……そして何気なく語られる結婚云々。大輔にだって物語はあるのです。
