And the tension ratchets up to 11. I like how Corky was slowly eased out. But is that the kind of job you can just leave?

So how come none of the staff came running when Pine set off the alarm? Seems like that would be kind of a security flaw.

He didn't set it off. They say at some point before that that the alarm is tested daily at 11 (I think the kid, Danny, tells him this). He waits for the alarm test to enter. I mean, it's still kind of dumb, because obviously you'd post a guard at the door when the alarm is being tested rather than crossing your fingers and hoping nobody exploits the massive flaw in your security scheme, but it's at least explained.

I love Angela so much in this. She is just so capable and unflappable and I love her.

I was trying to remember where I recognized her from, and it's Hot Fuzz.

And yes, her enforcement agency could use a bit of manpower.
