NARRATOR: A thump to the side of the head is an interesting way to start a conversation. It was obvious they’d used it before.
JAKE NERO: Hey! That hurt.
GOON: I wanted to get your attention.
JAKE NERO: Next time try “hello.” What do you want?
GOON: You know what I want, Jake.
JAKE NERO: For a guy who’s on a first-name basis with me you sure don’t look familiar.
GOON: Cute. Real cute. You’re a real funny man, Jake. Ain’t he funny?
SECOND GOON: He’s hilarious.
GOON: A regular Leon Errol.
JAKE NERO: Get to the point.
SECOND GOON: It’s pretty simple, Jake.
GOON: Stay outta the girl’s business.
SECOND GOON: She’s been through a lot.
GOON: She’s not thinking straight.
SECOND GOON: Poking around is going to stir up a hornet’s nest.
GOON: Nobody wants that. Especially the stick.
JAKE NERO: Why would the stick care? Its a stick.
NARRATOR: It turns out the answer to that question was “because if the stick doesn’t care it gets beaten to a pulp.”
