Back at the hotel miss agent approaches the reception desk, talks to Pierre and receives the letter, which proves to be written by Jack Dupree. Nicole asks the hotel owner about the Pont des Invalides and asks him to call another taxi for her. She then goes up to her room to send the photos she's taken to the bureau. Approaching the desk she picks up the laptop bag from the bench near the bed. She plugs in the camera and activates the laptop (double click). She then picks up the camera, and decides to bring the laptop along, so she puts it in the bag (pick up the bag and click on the laptop). Leaving the room Nicole decides to change her clothing (automatically) and leaves the hotel.
The happenings on the Pont des Invalides result in Nicole being sent back to the hotel under the police escort, who's ordered to take her to the airport. Nicole, however needs to get to Jack's apartment to look for the letters he mentioned. It's a bit of a problem, but not a one without a solution. Nicole enters the hotel and approaches the reception desk. She learns that Louis Carnot has been asking about her. Asking Pierre about the car he was supposed to rent, Nicole receives the keys. She then goes back outside and negotiates with the policeman to let her go to the airport in her own car, followed by the squad car. She goes back into the hotel and asks the receptionist about using the personnel exit, but he refuses. She gets back outside and convinces the policeman to have a croissant and some coffee. She goes to place the order with Pierre, and when he leaves for the back room - she free to take a look around the reception desk and it's surroundings.
She goes under the staircase to learn that the personnel exit (on the left) is closed. She grabs a bamboo stick from the plant pot and heads right to open (zoom in) the cabinet with glass door. She picks up a bottle cork and a scarf from the top shelf. She also grabs the threaded metal hook. From the top part of the door.
She gets back to the reception desk and heads right to see the small key locker that holds the backdoor key. She cannot, however, reach it. She attaches the hook onto the bamboo stick and uses this contraption to reach the key. Having it, she leaves the hotel for just one moment, and when she returns Pierre is waiting, with croissant and coffee. She then takes it to the policeman. Now, while he's busy with his meal she sneaks out through the back door and approaches the police car and blocks the exhaust pipe with the scarf (automatically).
She then leaves the room through the front exit and informs the policeman that she's ready to go. She sits behind the wheel of her rented car looks at the GPS (close up) and decides to go to Montmartre (green flag).
