In "Close Call", when Schanke got curious about Nick's odd behaviour, he went to the Raven to see if he could find out something from Janette. He came out to discover that a traffic cop was about to ticket the car he was driving—Nick's car, which he had been allowed to borrow for the day. Rummaging in the glove compartment for the registration, Schanke discovered an old New York driver's permit with Nick's picture.
