"Mr. Dad? My name is Detective Lumpkin." -The Detective
The Detective Edit
The Detective is Volume 8 of Uncle Samsonite: Season One. The Detective is also the character whom Jake's Dad first consults after the disappearance of Jake. After Jake's Dad answers the door, he welcomes Detective Lumpkin in and Detective Lumpkin assures Jake's Dad that he will do all he can to bring Jake back.
- The Detective is played by Jake Bowen, much like most of the characters in the series are.
- The Detective's name is Detective Lumpkin, referring to Ginuwine, whose name is Elgin Baylor Lumpkin.
- Detective Lumpkin refers to Jake's Dad as "Mr. Dad," implying that Jake's Dad's name is something along the lines of "Jake S. Dad"
- When investigating the closet, The Detective is asked by Jake's Dad if there are usually two detectives. The Detective responds with "Nope. I'm just a bachelor. I'm looking for a partner though." This refers to the first line of "Pony" by Ginuwine, where "I'm just a bachelor, looking for a partner" is sung.
