Merry Christmas 2015!
1286 [AM] [NH] [KF] [AY] [Bu] [Br] [SP] [RK] [IS] and [MN]
[AY]: You still think this is a bad idea?
[NH]: Maybe, I'm not sure.
[Br]: Look, nothing's going to happen. Let's just celebrate!
[AY]: Yeah, what he said!
[Bu]: Merry Christmas, Aki.
[AY]: Thanks, I got you something actually!
[Br]: You didn't give me anything.
[AY]: Well, I couldn't think what to give you besides a "knuckle sandwich".
[NH]: Wow, rest in pieces man.
[Bu]: Thanks, you really didn't have to give me anything though.
[AY]: Oh, then I'll just take it for myself!
[AM]: Merry Christmas, y'all!
[NH]: You really shouldn't have come. You fucking nig nog.
[AY]: That was a disappointing insult, Foxy.
[AM]: What did you have in mind, then? Come on. Impress me.
[AY]: Merry friggin' Christmas, from Scully.
[IS]: What are you talking about, I never said tha- ooh, I get it.
[AM]: Clever, really.
[IS]: Man, it's felt like years since I've seen a ZED.
[AY]: What do you think of Japan? I'd like to hear what you think.
[IS]: It's really nice there, I love it. Very beautiful, but it rains a lot where we live.
[RK]: I don't mind the rain so much, you complain too much!
[IS]: No I don't! Whatever...
[Bu]: I'm a bit surprised you're still making music, people must've thought you were dead.
[IS]: Not to sound pessimistic, but most of those people who'd think that are dead. Except for Americans and Asians really.
[AY]: Simon, glad you could make it!
[SP]: Indeed so, though next time let me ride with you instead of in a rental.
[AY]: Sorry, call if you need anything on that next time.
[SP]: I was just talking to Nate and he told me that you own one of the fastest cars in the world. 300 miles per hour sounds incredibly excessive.
[AY]: I actually have it set in metric, so it's 483 kilometers per hour.
[SP]: Right, because Americans use the imperial system.
[Br]: People really need to learn how to use the metric system.
[SP]: I should start to as well.
[IS]: Where'd you fly in from...Mr...
[SP]: Dr. Peterson, but you can call me Simon.
[IS]: Friends call me Scully, nice to meet you Simon.
[SP]: As am I to meet you. I flew in from Chicago, to answer your question.
[AY]: Where's that? I only really know California and Florida.
[SP]: Near to be the middle of America, in a state called Illinois.
[Br]: I've been there, Chicago is a nice city.
[SP]: Indeed it is, sir.
[Br]: Who are you? I don't think I've seen you around here.
[SP]: I'm Aki's friend, and I don't have much family to visit, so I came out here. She invited me. My actual title is Dr. Peterson, but you can call me Simon.
[Br]: Nice too meet you, Simon. I'm Alex.
[Bu]: My name's Ashton, nice to meet you.
[IS]: Man, is this a meet-n-greet Simon day? Wow!
[RK]: I guess it is, huh.
[SP]: Ren, nice seeing you again.
[AM]: People meeting people over here? Sorry, I was chatting with Nate.
[NH]: If that's what you want to call it, go ahead.
[KF]: Ok, everything should be ready! I was just doing last-minute preparation stuff.
[NH]: These...most of these people are our friends, it's not like you're making a presentation to your boss for work.
[KF]: I know, but I just wanted it to look good.
[NH]: Well, it does. Doesn't it?
[Bu]: Yes, very good job.
[Br]: It looks nice, I like it.
[AY]: You did good, Kari.
[SP]: Really nice indeed, nice place you two got here too.
[IS]: I would never afford something like this.
[AY]: You should see my place, I have a mansion up in the hills down there, you can see it from he-
[IS]: Okay okay, I get it. You guys are rich people.
[SP]: Why didn't we have this party at your place, then?
[NH]: She said the view was nicer up here.
[KF]: That's pretty nice, it really is though.
[AM]: Makes me want to change my view from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean.
[SP]: When you say it like that, you might as well stay wherever you are.
[AM]: Colorado, you can see the Rockies in the distance. Not in the horizon, it's not that far.
[SP]: Sounds really nice, wow you people are richer than J.P. Morgan out here.
[KF]: It beats still living out in Europe right now.
[IS]: I second that notion.
[RK]: Enough on that, shall we eat?
[Bu]: Only if it's-
[AY]: Shut up.
[AM]: It's not like he was going to say Whataburger.
[AY]: He was, though.
[AM]: Oh...damn it, now I want Whataburger.
[KF]: No burgers now, though we should all just go out and order that one day...
[NH]: Uhh...the food, people?
[KF]: Oh, yes of course! Everyone find somewhere to sit.
[NH]: (aside to [AY]) Hey Aki.
[NH]: How did you and Simon meet?
[AY]: Long story. To make short, Bain.
[NH]: Oh, ok...I don't know who that is.
[Br]: Man I'm hungry!
[Bu]: Probably because you never make anything for yourself at home.
[Br]: So? I do sometimes.
[Bu]: No, you reheat my spahgetti.
[AY]: Kids...shut up.
[Br]: This smells nice, how long did this take?
[KF]: 5 hours...I just occasionally went back to it after watching stuff on Netflix.
[SP]: What an interesting way to cook a turkey, but isn't it Christmas?
[KF]: I just assumed turkey was good for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
[SP]: However you assumed that, you'd be correct.
[IS]: I don't care much that it has to be the correct bird, I just like if it's made well. Right here, it definetally looks good.
- about 45-60 minutes pass at dinner
[AY]: You haven't said much tonight, at a loss for words?
[RK]: I'm not sure, I suppose I am.
[AY]: I can imagine, you've been through a lot more than I have.
[RK]: What do you suppose Jacob is doing right now?
[AY]: You could ask the same about the doctor ghost.
[RK]: Yeah, but Jacob is a live person. I'm willing to assume he's drunk with his handguns out, wearing a santa hat or the like.
[AY]: I bet. Lonely old guy.
[RK]: Hey Scully, Nate!
[RK]: Do you, "Fox", mind if Scully here sets the mood?
[NH]: That depends, what kind of mood are you going to set?
[IS]: I imagine your windows might break if we turned it up too loud. That kind of mood.
[NH]: Yeah, got anything by Pixl on there?
[IS]: I was imagining something by Tristam, first.
[NH]: Be my guest, I'm sure Kari would like it.
[KF]: I would love it.
[IS]: I have one question first, to ask your friend here, Nate.
[NH]: Who, her?
[IS]: Yes, hey excuse me!
[AY]: Oh, me?
[IS]: Yeah, I have a question.
[AY]: Ok, ask.
[IS]: You arrived last, only later was Simon, right?
[IS]: I saw this big ol' Stryker looking thing drive close by when you came in on your bike. When Simon arrived, I checked and it was gone. Did you happen to see it too?
[AY]: I did...I now that you mention it, I think I might know who it is...
[NH]: What's up, you two?
[AY]: I'd watch out, I think our mystery person has arrived.
[NH]: You don't mean...
[IS]: Not to alarm anyone, but do you hear footsteps?
- [MN] kicks the from door open, holding M249
[MN]: If anyone moves, I'm painting the floor red with you!
[AY]: What the hell?
[NH]: And who the fuck are you?
[MN]: Stay where you are, don't reach for anything!
[KF]: He has a light machine gun, we should probably just do what he says.
[Bu]: Yeah, well I do too at home.
[AM]: And what makes you think we'll do what you say?
[MN]: You, Alex, and Nate are to come with me.
[RK]: What is this about?
[IS]: You know, I called it.
[SP]: No need boasting...
[AM]: Why are we go to with you?
[MN]: It is critical that you do.
[MN]: You were always stubborn.
[Br]: Wait, what are you going to do?
[MN]: There is a secret worth sharing.
[Br]: I like secrets.
[AM]: One condition, though.
[MN]: No deals, ok?
[AM]: No one here is to be hurt, nor should they have reason to believe they need to come after us. I have a feeling I know what this is about.
[MN]: Sure, fine.
- [AM] [Br] and [NH] go with [MN] to hallway outside penthouse
[AM]: You didn't have to kick down the door.
[MN]: Scare tactics, man. I didn't want people to shoot me on sight.
[NH]: It worked...whatever made you think that was a good idea.
[Br]: This isn't about those messages, is it?
[MN]: You shouldn't have had the party.
[NH]: I was convinced otherwise.
[MN]: That girl...you might want to keep her on close tabs.
[NH]: Not too close, she wants to sleep with me!
[MN]: I know.
[Br]: What? And not me? I'm clearly the better option.
[MN]: Get a grip on yourself, man.
[AM]: So what's this about? We shouldn't have had a party?
[MN]: He's coming for you. She's always watching. They're not happy about your gains.
[NH]: I hope "she" isn't the doctor ghost.
[MN]: Each applies to each one of you.
[AM]: Who's coming for me?
[MN]: All I know is that he's angry and he's vicious.
[Br]: Someone's not happy about my gains?
[NH]: You're not trying to turn us against each other, are you?
[MN]: Who knows...
- [AM] [NH] and [Br] return
[IS]: What happened?
[AY]: Yeah, tell us!
[AM]: I have to leave now, sorry to be abrupt.
[Br]: I suggest everyone watches their backs from now on.
[NH]: Aki, the ghost might have plans for me.
[RK]: Good, she can leave me alone.
[AY]: That's shallow...
[SP]: Ghost? You musn't be talking about Isha, would you?
[NH]: I would, doctor.
[SP]: Quite a legend, that one.
[RK]: She's no joke, I swear.
[NH]: Also, doctor, I think you and Aki might make a good couple.
[Bu]: Hey! What the hell?
[NH]: Sorry, Ashton.
[SP]: Is this true?
[NH]: She does talk about you a lot.
[SP]: That's beside the point here, Nate.
[AY]: Yeah! The ghost, do you think she might arrive on the 10th?
[NH]: Who knows...but I still you two should go on a date or something.
[AY]: Can you stop?
[IS]: Don't mean to get involved, but be rational man.
[KF]: What's wrong, Nate? Why so persistant?
[MN]: Get a grip on yourself. She's always watching.
