Rick: *grin smugly*
Dave: You said the same thing for my story. You scared ME to death about Brig.
Rick: We're on the same boat, Dave. They keep getting kidnapped. I can't wait to get rid of the annoying Black Leaf!!!
Gil: Talk about pressure!
Betty: Come on now, you guys can do it. Besides, if there was no Black Leaf, you both wouldn't realize Brig or Marge's importance.
Rick and Dave: What? Of course we would...
Brig and Marge: No, they wouldn't.
Rick: Now now, I knew you were important to me before any Black Leaf's involvement.
Marge: Yeah, after my house burned down, you do pick a very good time.
Rick: Well...oh hey, what were you thinking about when you said I shouldn't prove my love by any bloody way? I still can't figure that one out.
Dave: Change subject so fast :P
Brig: Bloody way?
Marge: Well, I was thinking if you would cut your hand to swear your love by blood or something.
Everyone looked at Marge with bewildered eyes. Then Brig laughed. "Marge! You watched too many TV. This is not mafia ceremony. Or, I don't know, vampire biting."
Rick: Why didn't I think of that?
Dave laughed. "Yeah, Rick, go prick your finger."
Rick: Honey, which finger do you prefer? Should I do the ring finger or the middle?
Marge: *face red* Stop it, you! *Smack Rick's rib*
Gil: You women are....so...unexpected...*laughs* Always keep us in the confusing zone.
Marge: It was just one tiny comment. We're not that confusing.
Rick: Hell, yeah you are! But I love you all the same. *Yanks Marge into his arms*
Dave: *looks at Brig in wonder* You did confuse me. I thought I met a mad woman who had no common sense for keeping me.
Brig: Maybe I was going mad. Aren't you glad?
Dave: Yes...*kisses Brig*...not at the time but yes, yes, I'm glad you ignore your common sense when it comes to me.
Alex: Well, I'm not. Brig, I don't know if you notice, you're out of your vacation or sick days.
Marge: Oh yeah, we have to watch out. Hmm, either we should start saving money for a business of our own or I'll watch out for janitor positions for both of us, Brig, in case we get fired.
Rick and Dave: No...
Gil: *laughs* You both can come stay in Kalas, you don't have to work.
Brig: No, thank you Gil. We like to work. We prefer to support ourselves and such. To be honest, I can't imagine living in Kalas.
Marge: Thank you Gil but no. I don't think we can just be a supporting wife over there.
Dave: Dello is safer.
Rick: No, you will be wives that drive their husbands crazy.
Gil: *laughs* Well, well, I guess I have no hope asking for the hand of any independent woman from your world.
Brig: Unless you pick a political wife, uhm, not likely.
Alex: *pats Gil's shoulder* We should get a drink sometime. We surely can discuss about these stubborn women.
Gil: *nods* Indeed, indeed.
Betty: Cheer for Rick's story. Now, here's the important question, who wants to be interviewed next?
Rick: Not me, I just did one. I suggest Dave!!!
Dave: No, no..... I don't like to talk much in public.
Rick: You're like a radio!
Dave: Let Gil do it, it's his story coming up.
Gil: But you haven't done any interview and your story is already out. My story hasn't been out so readers don't know what to ask about me.
Betty: What about you girls?
Marge: Oh, no, come on, I got drunk and spilled my guts already. Let Brig do it.
Brig: No no, my story was out. There's nothing left to ask.
Marge: You never know...
Betty: *leaving the group to chatter and settle among themselves* Hey guys, what do you think? Who do YOU want to ask for interview?
