I feel like I remember that, like it's just at the edge of my mind, but I'm just not sure.

I think I'm going to go look for that. ...I feel it was coupled with a bunch of silhouettes behind her

EDIT: Okay, I think I've at least narrowed it down. In file 377, Conan says that the BO "gather(s) talented computer programers". This leads me to believe that in something before the Itakura case (which 377 starts) is where she said the thing about the BO recruiting young professionals. Still looking though

I'm also not quite sure, but I believe it was during or after the BO case with Pisco in Vol. 24.

Edit: Ok, it wasn't in Vol. 24. So it have to be after the Desperate Revival.

Based on an answer from another user, I discovered the line was from Countdown to Heaven, right after the BO finish planting bombs in the towers which is pretty much midway in the movie. *Is depressed the line wasn't from canon*

It's a little depressing. But even the line was from the manga origin,  we can't jump to the conclusion that
Spoiler: manga spoilers
the strongest senpa was recruited by the BO (Though I am quite in favor of this theory), vice versa.

Gin knows Vermouth is "Chris Vineyard" but we're not sure that she took Apoptoxin 4869 it could of been some other type of drug that she took to become ageless.  If the BO found out that she took Apopotoxin 4869 and hasn't aged then they would be tracking down the other people they gave the drug to.  Shiho's parent's could've been researching a way to prolong life and since Vermouth is the boss's favorite he/she might have let her be the first one to be the test subject it could be that Vermouth does age but quite slower than everyone else.
Well, and, as far as I know, it's unconfirmed whether Vermouth ever took APTX.  In fact, if she took anything, I doubt it was that.  If she had, and Gin knew about it, he probably wouldn't have used the drug on Shinichi waaaay back in the beginning.

To make it short: we don't know, if Gin knows that Vermouth is Sharon nor that she is not ageing.

What is Vodka's specialty, and how the hell did he get into the Black organization? For a clandestine group that's supposed to be full with elite operatives, this guy is a joke.

Just look at him.

They need his shiny bald head to blind people.

Or something like that.

Since other comments didn't make this clear, Gin knows Vermouth is Chris Vineyard because he picked her up at the mourning party. It is highly likely that he knows she is Sharon Vineyard as well. Besides being highly ranked and thus privy to some secrets, Gin talked to Vermouth about her disguising as a serial killer to lure out Akai out in NYC, something that happened while Sharon was active. Other people covered that Vermouth probably did not take APTX. If you want more info I strongly recommend the Vermouth wiki article.

For a serious response, this DCW thread: http://www.detectiveconanworld.com/foru ... the-black/

Spoiler: copypasta response
Gin doesn't remember faces and doesn't seem to follow the news (red shirts post Teito bank heist). Basically Vodka makes up for Gin's weak points which means he is useful.

Also keep in mind Vodka is Gin's secretary. Presumably that means he helps make sure Gin's orders get relayed out to the right parties and coordinates people, but how many secretaries do you know who can also successfully participate in missions, run a blackmail, and shoot a gun semi accurately? (Please note an anime botch: in the manga version of Shiho case, Vodka pretty accurately shoots at adult height where Conan is standing behind the door - in the anime Vodka looks like an idiot because the animators mistook the drawings of the muzzle flash for wall impacts)
