In Well – There Was This Girl, You See Frank is approached by a young woman who claims that her boyfriend John Sheldon (who she has now broken off with) was responsible for the theft of a wealthy necklace from the jewellery shop where he works. She offers Marker half of the reward money if he will help her prove it.
Marker is unsure whether to get involved as it was a similar case that saw him get sent to prison on a charge of being in possession of stolen goods (even though he had only recovered them as part of the case he was working on).
He ends up taking the case on but both he and Inspector Percy Firbank are completely outplayed by the cocky Sheldon, although by the end of the episode Frank and Percy are getting along a bit better.
