“No, see, she’s a lawyer and a mom.”
“Hmmm…”
“Look, I  already pitched it to Tinker and he loved it. Absolutely loved it. Said it will knock Police Woman out of the 8 PM slot on Fridays.”
"What do we have running there now?”
“Holmes & Yo-Yo.”
“Oh. Yeah. Okay, so, what’s her husband do?”
“He’s a stay at home dad, see. But he’s a dope. Can’t even run the dishwasher, overloaded sudsy laundry, one of those rag-mop dogs, the whole bit.”
“Is there a sexy divorced neighbor who has no job and always seems to be dropping by right at the most inopportune times half the time only wearing a terry cloth towel for some reason?”
“Of course.”
“Sold.”
Lawyer Mom!

The color may have been permanent, but it had been worth it. They were heroes, the real thing. Interviews on both local TV news programs (and they got to meet co-anchor Harvey Steele – dreamy!), newspaper articles, and just yesterday a call from Look magazine! Lisa had it the worst, of course, all the way up to her hips. But they had all helped. And to think – if they hadn’t been taking a Virginia Slims smoke break from their temp job at Garwood paints they never would have heard the cries from that kid drowning in Vat 12 (“Canary Sunrise”).

“No, seriously, it’s stuck in my hair.”
“How can it be—?”
“It’s just stuck, okay? I think one of your bananas got hooked. Try wiggling.”
“I am, but it’s like it’s glued on or something. What do you have in your hair?”
“Aqua Net, alright? If you must know, I used Aqua-Net in my hair this morning.”
“Why—?”
“Because I was in a hurry and it was all I could find, okay?”
“Still stuck. Try pulling harder.”
(pause)
“I can’t.”
“Well, why not?”
(pause)
“Because this isn’t my real hair.”

“No, seriously though. Are you really a chick or just a tall, skinny boy with a bad haircut?”

Xan-dar, Goddess of Burnt Orange, we bring you the sacrifices you requested. A poorly knitted bag made from the feathers of a thousand Crontharrs. The coiled, tumorous gonads of a Granthuum Beast. And a basket of mums. We beseech thee, please. May we wear blue again?

“Is he here?”
“Shush, I’ll let you know as soon as I–”
“Wait, I thought you said–”
“Just…quiet, all of you! You’re going to give us away!”
“Well, it’s hot up here. Just because you’re the first doesn’t make you the boss.”
“I never said I was–look, do We want to meet him or not?”
“Yes!”
“Yes!”
“Yes!”
“Yes!”
“Yes!”
“Okay, then. Now, remember, I only told him We were tall. So, please, just try to act natural?”

 
“Is he here?”
