The ingredients are all straightforward enough: a girl is kidnapped; her wealthy father wants to move heaven and earth to find her; a homeless man seems to have guilty knowledge, but is actually psychic.

But Garrett--the clairvoyant vagrant--is not lyrically crazy, like, say, River Tam of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', but absolutely devastated by his years of enduring visions and other manifestations of people's psychic pain. He isn't unstable, he is ''shattered''.

That super-rational Fraser even believes him may ''seem'' odd, but Fraser has always been warmly humanistic as well as logical and observant; a trait that here sets him against Vecchio and, even more so, against Agents Ford and Deeter, two arrogant FBI agents sent to find the missing girl.

Includes a car chase scene that is made ''completely awesome'' by being set to the Tragically Hip's "At the Hundredth Meridian".

At the very end, we see Fraser's first serious ethical lapse (eavesdropping on Ray and Fran), followed shortly by the first crack in his ironclad self-control (kicking the water fountain).

* ClingyJealousGirl: Fran.
* FingertipDrugAnalysis: Fraser picks out cumin in a chili recipe.
* LemmingCops: {{Averted}}. The cops in the high speed chase are all shown to be very competent, with the first car to chase the fugitive driving ''backwards'' before doing a hairpin turn at the start of the chase (the guy took off running the other way from behind them).
* LiteraryAllusionTitle - ''Main/{{Hamlet}}'' I.v
* MadOracle: Garrett.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished
* {{Psychometry}}: The homeless man's powers seem to work based on touching objects that belong to the people in his visions.
