(Nikki seems to be in the same location that Jonas filmed the video The Cowboy.)
Nikki: Hey guys, Nikki B. here. So, I'm on the lookout for Daniel. The last place he was spotted was the bowling with the cowboy. Now, the cowboy was last spotted at a rest stop, and I've been driving up and down, up and down the coast, and I think I found the right rest stop. I'm on the hunt for clues, to see if we can find our "Danny boy!" (sad voice) Danny boy, where are you?! So Jonas was doing some investigative work; he was trying to see if he could find Daniel in this abandoned van, and he was almost caught! But luckily, right as the cowboy was emerging from the bathroom, there was a voice, a "voice from beyond!" that said "Hey, cowboy, you forgot this!" Now what could a cowboy have forgotten in a bathroom? That's what we're here to find out. Let's go see if there's any clues in the bathroom. Come this way. Come this way.
(A younger boy walks by.)
Nikki: Hello. Have you seen any cowboys lookin' around here? Any guys that look like a cowboy? No.
(Nikki goes into a public bathroom. It is filthy.)
Nikki: Let's see if there is anything in here that we can find. In we go, here to the lovely public rest rooms of the rest stop. Okay. Okay, let's look in the sink here, ewww! Oh, how I love public rest rooms! The things we do for this investigative job. I don't really wanna know what the cowboy left in this bathroom, maybe he left it here on purpose! "Let's leave it in the bathroom!"
(cut to a pigeon on the roof, Nikki is talking to it.)
Nikki: Excuse me, sir? Yeah, you. What are you hiding in there? (Nikki makes a bird sound.)
(cut to wide shot of the rest stop)
Nikki: So, I'm here looking for clues, for Daniel, and I see a van right here, which is a little suspicious...and a black town car. The van's pulling out. Daniel, are you in there? (she chases the van) Daniel? Daniel! Daniel! Mysteriously, the black car is gone as well. Although I do commend Jonas's investigative work, my question is, is Jonas, Bree, you guys went to Cowboy's house. You think Daniel might be in danger. Why didn't you do some investigation of the house?! Check out the perimeter, do something! You guys just waiting for Nikki B. to come to your rescue? All right. That's all I wanted to hear.
(a plane flies overhead)
Nikki: That plane is flying awfully low in this rest stop. What is this place? Am I being watched? I do know what is like to be stalked....on the Internet.
(a helicopter flies overhead)
Nikki: Did you guys just see that helicopter, literally? OK, I really think I'm being watched now. Oh great, oh great, here they come again. (Plane flies overhead) OK, so maybe that's a commercial plane, but still. Since when did the investigative reporter get to be the investigate-ee? I gotta get a new job! So, we're leaving the rest stop. But this is not over yet! I'm heading back to the bowling alley one more time to see if I can sweet talk that bartender--I'm good at that--to giving me the cowboy's address. This case is not closed. Until next time, this is Nikki B. signing off!
(Text appears on the screen, reading "Wait, there's more...")
Nikki: So, I know I promised you guys a Gemma report, but I've been so caught up in the whole "Daniel is missing" shenanigans, that Gemma kinda fell by the wayside. But, hey, don't worry, I've got a lot of stuff going on and I will have a report for you guys in a few days on Gemma.
(Text appears on the screen, reading "Gemma's apt")

(Text appears on the screen, reading "the phonebooth")
(still shot of the phone booth from Gemma? [Part III])
(Text appears on the screen, reading "the alley!")
(still shot of the alley from Gemma [Part V])
Nikki: Gemma's coming soon.
- Nikki misspelled "phone booth" in this video, spelling it "phonebooth."
- Nikki's mention of being stalked on the Internet is no doubt a nod to her recently being revealed as an actress by an lg15 fan.
