  • Terry Bumbescu: Huh-What?!
  • Leon Meager: Dude... You were snoring...loudly.  Go to your room or something...
  • Terry Bumbescu: [sigh, groan, couch springs creaking, loud footsteps, scratch, scratch] Yeah, sure...  Eventually, but since I'm up...  Might as well have a drink.  You in?
  • Leon Meager: Uh... No... I'm good.
  • Terry Bumbescu: [loud footsteps, sniff, scratch] Suit yourself...  Still not up yet? [loud footsteps]
  • Leon Meager: No... No, she's not.
  • Terry Bumbescu: You checked her pulse lately?  Maybe she's dead...
  • Leon Meager: She's not dead.
  • Terry Bumbescu: [loud footsteps, refrigerator door opens and closes, loud footsteps] If you say so... [couch springs creaking, beer can tab popped, carbonated hiss, slurp]
  • Ellie MacKay: [sniff, sniff, groan][weakly:] Flag ...  What did I tell you about drinking in my roo- [gasp, clatter] Where am I?!
  • Terry Bumbescu: Hey, look...  You were right.  She is alive! [chuckle, slurp]
  • Leon Meager: [clatter, rushed footsteps] Ellie!  You're alive- I mean, awake! [nervous chuckle]
  • Ellie MacKay: L-Leon?!  What the hell?!  Where the [expletive] am I?!  [silence: 2.3 seconds, gasp]  And where the hell are my clothes?!
  • Leon Meager: [nervous chuckle]  Okay...  Uh..  Well...  Whew...  Where to begin? [nervous chuckle] Here, take this blanket. [fabric shifting]  How about one answer at a time?
  • Ellie MacKay: [fabric shifting]  That would probably be a good place to start...
  • Leon Meager: Okay, right...  Well, uh, what's the last thing you remember?
  • Ellie MacKay: I'm the one asking the questions!
  • Leon Meager: Right...  Right...  [nervous chuckle] Okay...  Uh...  Well...  Gee, not knowing what's the last thing you remember kinda makes this difficult to explain.
  • Terry Bumbescu: [chuckle] Wow, so smooth, lover-boy.  You really know how to make it look like you didn't rehearse this a hundred times while she was out.  [chuckle, slurp]
  • Leon Meager: Hey, Peanut Gallery?  Hush.
  • Ellie MacKay: Who is he?!
  • Leon Meager: Him?  He's no-one.  Don't worry about him.
  • Ellie MacKay: Leon, who the [expletive] is he?!
  • [in unison:] Leon Meager: My uncle! Terry Bumbescu: His roommate! [pause] [in unison:] Terry Bumbescu: I'm his uncle! Leon Meager: He's my roommate!
  • Ellie MacKay: What?!
  • Leon Meager: He's my uncle...and my roommate...  It's a complicatedly long story that's due to us both being horrible liars.  So staying with the truth:  Do you happen to recall that you were injured?
  • Ellie MacKay: Injured...  I...  I was injured? [gasp] Is Angie okay?  Is my mom okay?
  • Leon Meager: Y-Yeah...  Yes...  I think so...  Yes, I think everyone is fine...  I'm sorry...  I don't really know.  My, uh...  My focus is sorta on you.
  • Ellie MacKay: Say what?!
  • Terry Bumbescu: [slurp, groan] This is just embarrassing, kid...  Look, Alice-
  • [in unison:] Ellie MacKay: Ellie... Leon Meager: Elissa...
  • Terry Bumbescu: What did I say?
  • [in unison:] Ellie MacKay: Alice... Leon Meager: Alice...
  • Terry Bumbescu: Right...  Okay...  I'm still hearing Alice... [groan, couch springs creaking, loud footsteps] Here's the deal.  Leon saw you were hurt.  He happens to have a thing for you and he got scared he was going to lose you before he had the chance to tell you how he feels about you.  He brought you here and nursed you back to health. You don't have any clothes because well they were soaked in blood and we washed them... and then Leon got nervous that you'd wake up while he was in the middle of re-dressing you and you'd get the wrong idea and fry his ass.  That about cover it, Leon?
  • Leon Meager: [nervous sigh] Well, just about...  I think you left out the 'where the hell are we' portion, but other than that?  Yeah, I think you nailed it, Ter...[sigh]
  • Terry Bumbescu: Ah, right...  We're in Fiji...  I mean, last I checked.
  • Ellie MacKay: Last you checked?!
  • Leon Meager: [sigh, footsteps] Here...  Come over here and take a look.  [curtains sliding]  Me and uh...  Uncle Terry live on Danny the Street.
  • Ellie MacKay: Danny!?  I'm on Danny right now?! [sigh, chuckle] Oh, wow...   That's a relief.  Okay...  Wow...  for a moment there, I though I was going to be missing a kidney.
  • Terry Bumbescu: Wait...  You know Danny?
  • Ellie MacKay: Oh, uh...  Danny? [nervous chuckle] You said 'Danny'?  I thought you said...  uh... uh... Smoke-bomb! [flames crackle, smoke swirls, cough, cough, rapid footsteps, fabric catching on nail, stumbling footsteps, panicked scream, thud, cough, cough, groan, footsteps, loud footsteps] So...  Uh...[nervous chuckle]  I have powers... [nervous chuckle] Surprise?
  • Terry Bumbescu: [scoff] Not really, kid...  We knew that.  In fact it's one of the reasons Leon's got such a hard-on for you.
  • Leon Meager: Hey, that's enough out of you now. [sigh, fabric shifting] Here, cover up and come sit on the couch.  Maybe there's a better person to explain all this...  [remote click]
  • [Jonathan Lord:] Despite their massive trains, peacocks are actually capable of flight-
  • Ellie MacKay: [scoff] You want me to watch reruns of 'Weird World'?  Seriously, how is this going to explain anyt-
  • Danny the Street: [television static] Bona to vada, Ellie!  Danny here! You have clobber in the closet.  While we wait, let's cackle on the fine ends and dish on that fine chicken admirer of yours.
  • Leon Meager: The closet is right here.  [door opens, nervous chuckle]  Terry and I will be out in the hall.  We'll give you two a chance to catch up... and cackle about chickens? [door opens, footsteps, loud footsteps, door closes] You have any idea what Danny just said?
  • Terry Bumbescu: [scoff, slurp] Not a clue, man...  But if I read the tone of that nature documentary, I think it was good.
  • Leon Meager: [sigh] Okay...  Here's hoping...  [under-breath:] Too much is at stake otherwise...
