Kogoro is investigating a case for Blue Parrot Pool Bar bartender Yuzuki Fukui. She claims to frequently hear the sound of champagne bottle cap popping open followed by the smell of yuzu. She looks her costumers poping champagne bottles everytime she hears the sound but no customer does it. Although, when she does hear the popping sound, there are 4 customers that always seem to be around. Conan goes to the bar to check on Kogoro, but a murder occurs.
One of the customers that is always around when the popping sound is heard, Chikafumi Usuda, is murdered by Neurotoxin poisoning by a needle to the neck. The other 3 frequent customers are his colleagues and all have motives. The needle used to murder the victim is nowhere to be found. While Kogoro starts looking for the needle on the ground, Yuzuki notices a piece of gum stuck to Kogoro's shoe that wasn't there previously. Further examinations reveal it to be clay instead of gum. Conan notices the letters HDEP which stands for high density polyethylene. Yuzuki watches the ongoing investigation with boredom and comments that she should be singing in the shower at this time of the day normally. This comment makes Conan connect all the pieces and he realizes how the murder is done.
The culprit is Monpei Kogure. He wanted to avenge Yoshikuwa. After case closed, Detective Takagi told Conan that Touhei Benzaki from the pickpocket case , there is a contradiction in bank robbery case, and the real Benzaki said that he does not remember he was involved in that pickpocket murder case and he is unmarried. Conan who is suspected that fake couple is Bourbon and Vermouth, rushed back to the Mouri Detective Agency in panic worried Haibara has been compromised.
