PREVIOUSLY: “Hey! That’s my line!”
“Oh-LOOK!” Linda quipped, “We have our very-own ‘Bickersons’ here!”
It was quiet in the café—the lunch rush was over when the two strangers walked-in.
“Good afternoon gentlemen,” Kiwi Silverthorn greeted, “Coffee?”
“Yes, please—black,” the man wearing the Stetson said.
“Me too, but with cream, please,” the other man said.
As Kiwi prepared their orders, Hiram engaged them, “You fellows are new in town, what brings you to Danger Bay?”
“We’re in the insurance business,” Stetson replied, “We specialize in business insurance.”
“Interesting,” Hiram replied as Kiwi brought them their coffee, “We’re well-insured.”
“Everyone we meet believes that,” Stetson replied, “But we generally are able to convince them otherwise.”
Hiram’s internal radar informed him that these fellows might just be setting them up.
He was correct.
Season 17—Adventure 10—REVENGE—Episode 12—Scene 1… Inside Silverthorn Café Downtown Danger Bay… “How so?” Hiram asked.
Before they could reply, Chris & Wyatt Earp walked-in, “Too late for lunch?”
“You’re right on time,” Kiwi replied, “What’ll you have?”
“What’ll you have?”
“How about a couple of BLTs?” Chris replied.
“Coming right up,” Kiwi replied.
Chris looked Stetson and his friend over slowly, “You fellas visiting our little town?”
“Yes,” Stetson replied, “We’re selling insurance.”
“Any luck?” Wyatt asked as he looked each man over slowly and obviously.
“We’re working on that,” Stetson’s now nervous partner replied, smiling.
Both Wyatt and Chris became suspicious.
And it showed.
The two quickly finished their coffees and left Silverthorn’s.
Episode 12—Scene 2… Downtown Danger Bay Minnesota… Stetson and his friend didn’t get far before Sheriff James Silverthorn pulled them over.
“Gentlemen, may I see your license to sell insurance, please?”
“I must have left mine in the motel,” Stetson-wearing man replied.
“Me too,” his unnamed partner chimed-in.
“Okay then!” Jimmy replied as another Sheriff’s squad arrived—blocking any escape, “Step out of the car, please.”
When Deputy Sheriff Smithers searched the two, “It seems Sheriff that these fellows not only don’t have a sales license—they have no ID whatsoever. But, they each have a handgun.”
“You take the one without the Stetson, Deputy Smithers—I get him.”
Both lawmen quickly drew their sidearms—and both bad guys raised their hands. They were just smart enough to know they lost this encounter.
“You got it, Jimmy.”
And so, it was—another roadblock to Janet Smith’s plans.
Inside the Silverthorn Café—Chris & Wyatt Earp smiled very-wide—very wide indeed.
