Our Old Tricks

Cast: Tycho, Gabe

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Two shot. Gabe is worried; he pounds his fist into his open palm. Tycho is behind him, bored.}
Gabe: I'm in trouble! Jack Thompson knows.
Tycho: He does?
Gabe: I don't know how he found out. I thought I'd been so careful.

Panel 2

{Another two shot. Tycho is surprised. Gabe is in the background tipping over a table lamp. With a click, Gabe descends into a shadowy basement.}
Gabe: In his latest lawsuit, Jack Thompson says we've been racketeering.
Tycho: And you are?
Gabe: Yeah. Every night. I fly around with my jetpack, and I fight Nazis.

Panel 3

{Gabe is now wearing a burnished metal helmet, obviously the same one used by The Rocketeer. Tycho is flashing a smug grin.}
Tycho: Oh, no. No. This is rocketeering. You're okay.
Gabe: But what about you? Do you racketeer at all?
Tycho: No. I'm more of a raconteur.
