Modesty spends a few weeks with ex-CIA agent Steve Taylor, who is doing classified research on dolphins. While Modesty is picking up some fish to feed the dolphins, mobsters hired by the KGB force Steve to hand over his research. Modesty returns just in time to prevent Steve from being killed. The mobsters escape, but Modesty has switched out the actual research papers with worthless real estate papers. The mobsters will have to return to get the real papers, but by then Willie and Sir Gerald have answered Modesty's call for help.
