Episode 7—Scene 2… The Holiday Inn… In their room, Aleev and Bambi McOsker, and Gina Mincucci, were almost giddy with the news out of Lakeview City; the sheriff was dead!
“We’ll have those two perform a few more hits for us,” Gina smiled in anticipation, “Like that Linda and the guy with the beard at the car dealer.”
“I wonder why we haven’t heard from our hitmen?” Bambi asked.
“That is strange,” Aleev agreed, “They came very highly recommended.”
“Yes, MA’AM!” Aleev laughed, “I’m sure they’re probably at a bar celebrating. Hmm, No answer. I’ll try their hotel room.”
“No answer, Gina,” he replied, “I’ll leave a message.”
“Is there anybody in Lakeview we can ask?”
“No Bambi,” Gina replied.

“…TELL ME THAT!”
“You have no idea how much I’d like to tell you what you want to hear,” McLean spoke gently, “I just can’t, he’s in extremely critical condition.”
“Cujo,” Daisy pleaded, “Is there nothing you can do? Warp time to before Alpha-Jack was shot?”
“I cannot this time, I’m afraid,” She replied, “You must prepare yourself; and know that REAL WORLD Alpha-Jack is fine, and will remain so.”
“AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO!” Daisy bayed. It was not a happy bay; in her mind, she was clearing a path to the Great Beyond for her Alpha-Jack.
