[Day 1]
Edgar starts off sitting in the train heading for Montreal (to his uncles appartement).
In the hallway, he meets the janitor Malaki (oh girl) telling him things straight (and more).
In the appartement, he reads the newspaper and finds a job add as PI-assistant.

Edgar meets up with Gaspard (his new boss) and Jeannine (his dear secretary). Edgar needs to respond to a few questions:

This ends the first day at work (?); Edgar gets a proper desk (?) and returns to the appartement (where he immediately falls asleep and dreams of dear Jeannine).
