Benoit Blanc: In the 2019 movie Knives Out, Daniel Craig's detective Benoit Blanc is a private investigator, though there are two police detectives who he works with throughout the movie. Ransom (played by Captain America himself, Chris Evans) refers to Blanc as "CSI: KFC;" it's a nickname with six initials. Early in the film, he signals the detectives by playing the highest note on a piano. He has a thick southern accent and is investigating the death of Harlan Thromby, whose throat was slit.

Episode Notes

While the song played on the big keyboard is "Heart And Soul" there's a hint of "Chopsticks" at the end so we're giving Joe an extra 10 points.
