Matt1 has joined this room
Matt1: Hello GS!
Godwinshelley3: Hello Matt
Godwinshelley3: Are you on-line for viewing today or will you need to leave early (and how is the dental work BTW)
Matt1: I’ll be leaving again….pain has been controlled, but either root canal or extraction tomorrow morning 🙁
Matt1: Thnx for asking though
Matt1: Made for a rough X-Mas
Godwinshelley3: Yikes – like the pandemic isn’t fun enough for you?
Matt1: 2020 strikes again
Godwinshelley3: So it’s a great time for food – but a bad time for chewing for you right now.
Matt1: Yes! I like the joke on the net…..If you thought 2020 was bad, just wait until 2020 turns 21 lol
Godwinshelley3: Wow – hadn’t heard that one yet
Rush2 has joined this room
Matt1: Hello Rush!
Godwinshelley3: Hello Rush
Godwinshelley3: We will be starting the extra in about 8 minutes
Matt1: How’s the painting going?
Rush2: Hello! We experienced snow!
Matt1: Ready here.
Godwinshelley3: Yes – well you are moving to a place that gets snow
Matt1: What was that “white” stuff?
Godwinshelley3: We had a dusting on Christmas Eve that lasted in spots for a day
Rush2: Oh yes! Supposed to be 5 to 8 inches tomorrow!
Godwinshelley3: Matt are you leaving before our feature?
Matt1: lol what a welcome!
Matt1: Probably, but will copy the chat for Rush
Godwinshelley3: So BUY your shovels and salt now to have in your new home.
Rush2: I had to borrow a snow shovel to clear the driveway. I also learned about salt!
hounder has joined this room
Matt1: Too funny
Rush2: I bought one today.
hounder: hi matt gs and rush
Godwinshelley3: I lived in a townhouse and had neighbors on both sides without the proper snow stuff – one from Brazil and the other from Florida
Matt1: Hello Hounder!
Godwinshelley3: Hello Hounder
Godwinshelley3: It’s our Ross Martin evening today
hounder: ouch matt. sorry
Rush2: Good evening, Hounder!
Godwinshelley3: We used to leave our shovel outside our front door if the neighbors wanted to borrow them
Rush2: Kind of you, GS!
Godwinshelley3: I also shovelled them out the first winter – after that I expected them to do their own
Rush2: Our driveway slopes up to the street, so it was an adventure getting our car up it last evening!
Godwinshelley3: We will be starting the extra in 5 minutes
hounder: good policy gs
Godwinshelley3: Yikes – is your driveway heated?
Matt1: Need to buy a sled too Rush
Godwinshelley3: other wise salt – though salt is only good to a certain temperature
hounder: i bet rush. you’ll have to learn to drive in the snow and ice.
Rush2: You are right, Hounder!!!
hounder: if you lived closer to nc i have a sled you could have.
Rush2: Midwest 101
hounder: might want to keep kitty litter in your car in case.
Godwinshelley3: And, if it’s going to be really freezing and you need to get out early, maybe leave one car at the bottom of the hill.
Rush2: I am currently at the back of the class!
Matt1: Good plan GS
Rush2: Tonight I BACKED the car into the garage.
Godwinshelley3: Yes and a candle, matches, and a coffee can – put candle in can light it and put it on the icy patch that keeps your tires spinning
Matt1: lol, sorry
Godwinshelley3: Well – winter has lots of fun new things to learn for you
hounder: might want to invest in an ice scraper/brush to keep in the car as well.
Godwinshelley3: 2 minutes to extra
Matt1: You need to write a journal on this move
Rush2: Also, I extended our stay here for another week.
Godwinshelley3: And scape the WHOLE car – not just the window – the snow on roof & hood will blow back over the window as you drive
Godwinshelley3: 1 minte
Rush2: So, could you all host on the 4th?
Godwinshelley3: I can probably do that
Rush2: GS you will have to clue me in as you did last week, please!
Godwinshelley3: 10 sec
hounder: i hope everyone had a good christmas
Godwinshelley3: 5 sec
Matt1: And you too!
Godwinshelley3: Smilin Jack – in the air
Godwinshelley3: Wow Sidney Tole & Keyte Luke
Rush2: It was unusual!
Godwinshelley3: Keye was on Perry Mason today
Rush2: I am watching the serial on Rachel’s phone!
Godwinshelley3: Rush did you have a tree?
Matt1: Hopefully an exciting one Rush
Godwinshelley3: And so extra action begins in ChungKing
Rush2: We brought a Charlie Brown little fake tree with us!
hounder: hopefully a satisfying one rush
hounder: good call rush.
Godwinshelley3: Jack walks and phone rings
Rush2: It was!
Godwinshelley3: Turhan Bey and compatriots calling
Rush2: We spent the day at some new friends of ours! Rachel will be going to school with their daughters!
Godwinshelley3: New phone call now.Now Turhan asking for report on Capt Martin
Rush2: They were calling station TBS?
Godwinshelley3: Jack is trying to overcome his troubles last week – he is asked to confess
Godwinshelley3: Then he walks across burning coals
Godwinshelley3: in his bare feet
Matt1: Hot foot
Rush2: He’s innocent.
Godwinshelley3: A bad guy tried to shoot him but was stopped by a spear
Godwinshelley3: The high priest lets him go and takes the bad guys into custody
Rush2: I am watching , GS!
Godwinshelley3: Philip Ahn
Godwinshelley3: Yes – good – this close caption action is tiring
Rush2: Rachel’s phone has the serial going!
Godwinshelley3: So you have wifi in your new house
Rush2: I hope your Christmas was a good oneHounder, as well as for you GS and Matt!
Godwinshelley3: Ours was quiet = which is alright by me
hounder: a very quiet one rush. mom slept most of the day.
Godwinshelley3: This extra has lots of Chan actors!!
Rush2: Ah…will he spill the beans?
Rush2: Took too long!
Godwinshelley3: It ALWAYS takes too long
Godwinshelley3: Start with the name first!! Then explain after
Rush2: GS, are you on you phone tonight?
hounder: i like how you think gs
Godwinshelley3: I was then changed to laptop
Rush2: The Flying Tigers!
Godwinshelley3: Was this before Sydney Chan films?
Godwinshelley3: It made it easier to sell Sydney to the studio as Asian character I bet
Rush2: This would have probably been filmed between “Castle in the Desert” and “”CCin the Secret Service.”
Godwinshelley3: Turhan was an interesing actor
Rush2: The buildings will be rubbish.
Rush2: Warn Ted Turner!
Godwinshelley3: Jack – she’s a bad guy!!!! Look out!!!
Rush2: He knew already.
hounder: she’sstill plotting
Godwinshelley3: He never had the chart
Godwinshelley3: Oh no – another bad guy
Rush2: Don’t tell everything!
Rush2: Too late!
Rush2: “Tongue hang man quicker than rope”
Godwinshelley3: Yes, Pop
Godwinshelley3: More flying footage with bombing
Rush2: Courtesy of Charlie Chan!
Godwinshelley3: caught in a bomb raid
Godwinshelley3: Apparently the bad guys are rubbish at tying up prisoners
Rush2: Looked like a practice range!
Godwinshelley3: Oh no – now they double cross each other – tough being a bad guy
Godwinshelley3: Turhan!! show
hounder: and she’s betrayed too.
Rush2: Sort of a triple cross!
Godwinshelley3: Turhan shoots back
Godwinshelley3: then dies
Godwinshelley3: and she got blown up
Rush2: Yep! It had her name on it!
Godwinshelley3: but the good guys – free from badly tied ropes – climbs out of the bombed building
Godwinshelley3: And Sydney has the chart that was causing all the trouble
Godwinshelley3: yikes – got thrown out for a moment
Matt1: I’m going to call it a night. I’ll send you the chat tomorrow Rush. Hope you all have a Happy New Year!
Godwinshelley3: united nations – united friends
Godwinshelley3: OK Matt – rest well
Rush2: Ending music.
Godwinshelley3: And the chart is burned – all that trouble up in smoke
Godwinshelley3: THE END
Matt1 has left this room
Rush2: Good ending!
Godwinshelley3: And now it’s time to dig up the DVD of Return of Charlie Chan – or go to the link
Rush2: Next week the radio dramas start!
hounder: nite matt. get well
Godwinshelley3: Rush – I’m making small buttons for masks on magnets that say things like – speak up/hard of hearing, deaf on left/talk to right ear.
Rush2: Missed Matt’s depart…sorry.
Godwinshelley3: Would anyone in our group find one helpful to them?>
Godwinshelley3: I thought you might know.
hounder: good thought gs
Godwinshelley3: Yes, Matt has more dental fun tomorrow – so he is resting up tonight
hounder: thank you gs, but mom’s hearing is fine.
Godwinshelley3: I will cue up my dvd right now – brb
Rush2: Tysm, GS, but I don’t know what mine could say! Maybe “caution…fogged glasses.”
Godwinshelley3: I’m cued
Rush2: I think we can all identify with Matt!
Godwinshelley3: I know the glasses are a problem –
Godwinshelley3: My Mom is deaf on the left side – and the masks make it harder for her to hear – I guess she reads lips some
Rush2: Rachel and I are cued too!
Godwinshelley3: I wanted something that might help her
hounder: ready here
Godwinshelley3: Good – so you are here for the feature too
Godwinshelley3: Well we have 8 minutes yet
Godwinshelley3: so get your popcorn
Rush2: Yes, GS! That would really be good for your mother!
Godwinshelley3: I think the on-line link starts a few seconds in from my DVD copy – I start with an exterior shot of the ocean liner
PaulM has joined this room
Godwinshelley3: Hello Paul
Godwinshelley3: We just cued up for the feature
Rush2: That’s something I never considered! There are MANY people who rely on lip reading!
Godwinshelley3: Do you have the DVD or are you doing the on-line link
Rush2: Hello, Paul!
Godwinshelley3: Yes – I think alot of people kind of read lips – and the masks helped them realize how bad their hearing has become
PaulM: good evening
hounder: hi paul
Rush2: Good evening, sir!
Rush2: I am away and on my phone tonight!
Godwinshelley3: We have 5 minutes
hounder: i’ve seen masks made with a clear plastic panel for people to be able toread lips
Godwinshelley3: Wow – but that relies on the other person being prepared
Rush2: GS and Hounder are driving tonight!
Godwinshelley3: So fasten your seatbelts – it’s going to be a bumpy ride
Godwinshelley3: 4 minutes
Rush2: Yes, Hounder! One of my students had one of those!
Godwinshelley3: 3 minutes
Rush2: I am letting Rachel know the time as she’s in charge of the movie on her phone!
Godwinshelley3: 2 minutes
Rush2: I got an email from one of our members from the past, Steve O! He’s going to try to join us sometime soon!
Godwinshelley3: 1 minute
Godwinshelley3: That would be great – is he on your email list?
hounder: great. hope he’s well. and speaking of past membrs, have you heard from va lately?
Rush2: I am not sure.
Godwinshelley3: 30 seconds
Godwinshelley3: 15 seconds
Godwinshelley3: 10 seconds]\]
Godwinshelley3: 5 seconds
Rush2: Very good!
Godwinshelley3: Ship and card playing
Rush2: The first scene
Godwinshelley3: Leslie Nielsen – in a bad hat
Godwinshelley3: I guess this is the tease before the credits
Rush2: No, I have not heard from Virginia.
Rush2: When I get home I will try to call her.
hounder: i hope she’s well
Rush2: Last I heard, she was going to move to another residence.
Godwinshelley3: Well – you know what fun moving is, don’t you Rush
hounder: ah. hope it’s a better place for her.
Rush2: Me too.
hounder: unretire him
Godwinshelley3: Charlie Chan!!
Godwinshelley3: It’s like the music can’t make up it’s mind
Godwinshelley3: I’m still running credits
Rush2: We are good again
Godwinshelley3: I guess we could have the Chan family actors from this film at a festival if we ever had one
Godwinshelley3: Funny vehicle for Chan to be driving
Rush2: Rachel could tell there are commercials throughout
Rush2: Unique Chan hat here!
Rush2: Teaching deductions!
Rush2: Chan girls in pink.
Rush2: Time check…please
Godwinshelley3: Might have been the fashion that year
Godwinshelley3: No Edwin??
Rush2: We may need those on occasion!
Godwinshelley3: Eisenhour on wall wall photo
Rush2: Seems a commercial hits every five minutes!
Rush2: Missed that, GS!
Godwinshelley3: above the fire place
Godwinshelley3: on the left
Rush2: Tysm, GS. Commercial in a minute
hounder: i’m not getting any commercials?
Rush2: Papa Chan
Godwinshelley3: sorry 10:30
Rush2: This recalls the family scene in “Cc at the Circus”!
Godwinshelley3: THE hat
Rush2: They convince him to take the case
Rush2: Tysm, GS
Rush2: Rachel is keeping us close!
Rush2: Commercial about every 7minutes.
Rush2: Fake beard
Rush2: Laundry teady
Rush2: Peter Chan
hounder: charlie still doesn’t like to be called pop
Rush2: Ty GS
Rush2: Yes Hounder!
Rush2: A beefeater doorman
PaulM has left this room
Godwinshelley3: Yikes – Paul left
Rush2: Then there were three…
Rush2: Ping pong
Godwinshelley3: VERY yellow turtleneck
Godwinshelley3: There is your white fur
Rush2: And Mrs. Hidrachi is rather strange.
Godwinshelley3: I like the mustache on Ross
Rush2: I agree!
Godwinshelley3: After all the comedies Leslie made, it’s harder to see him being serious and in makeup like this
Rush2: TY…western staying close,
Rush2: We are… not western!
Godwinshelley3: We are?
Godwinshelley3: Yes I see
Godwinshelley3: Autocorrect can be fun
Godwinshelley3: not much bubbles in that champagne
Rush2: That’s true about Leslie Nielsen!
Godwinshelley3: How many versions of Christmas Carol has everyone watched this year?
Rush2: He was obviously pretty versatile!
Godwinshelley3: Yes – I think the makeup makes me expect him to do something outlandish
Rush2: Dance routine
Rush2: Peter helps out
Godwinshelley3: So what color are you painting your house?
Godwinshelley3: Yellow and Gray are the “big” colors – not my cup of tea
Rush2: Ceilings “White Shadow”
Godwinshelley3: The music is all over the place in this film – starting with the opening credit
Godwinshelley3: That sounds nice
hounder: big colors frequently change
Rush2: Walls “MistyMica”
Godwinshelley3: MistyMica – is that a version of gray?
Rush2: Trim a little darker…
hounder: misty mica is like a creamiah or greyish?
Rush2: Doors a little more dark
Godwinshelley3: I used my typewriter this year for a letter at Christmas
Rush2: Yes it is a light warmish grey
Godwinshelley3: I remember those coats like Doreen is wearing – velvet with the frog closures – maxy length
Rush2: I like old typewriter!
Rush2: Yes, GS?
Godwinshelley3: That was a style of coat back then
Rush2: TY we are right on track!
hounder: i still have my selectric typewriter I got for high school graduation.
Godwinshelley3: maxy length was SOOOO much better in the winter than the mini-coats
hounder: oh isn’t that the truth gs.
Godwinshelley3: And we had to wear skirts in school – sometimes I would wear slacks underneath and change at school
Godwinshelley3: But no place to sit down by the lockers to sit for the change
Rush2: Whenever I hear Hidrachi’s name, I think of Hydrox cookies!
Godwinshelley3: Can’t keep a good Chan down!!
Rush2: Chan at the typewriter
hounder: i remember doing that as well gs. and carrying shoes to change out of snoe boots.
Rush2: Recalls a couple of films!
angel & docks has joined this room
Godwinshelley3: And discovering “fashionable” coats were rarely warm
Godwinshelley3: Hello Angel & Docks
angel & docks: This the Exhibit hall?
hounder: hi a&d
Rush2: I will be learning “snow tricks”!
Godwinshelley3: Smoking in the police station
angel & docks: “Docks” is sposed to be FOX.
hounder: up. that too gs.
Godwinshelley3: Ah – I see
angel & docks: Don’t the cops have a Boys’ Room?
PaulM has joined this room
Godwinshelley3: Hello Paul – welcome back
angel & docks: Have we started the last feature yet?
PaulM: sorry…my computer locked up on me
Godwinshelley3: Yes – 38:20
Rush2: Welcome, Angel &Docks!
hounder: thats a very large knot she’s usiing to dress up her hair
Godwinshelley3: So many people are smoking pipes in this film
Godwinshelley3: Angel we are about 40 minutes in – or will be in 30 seconds
Godwinshelley3: So Leslie is wearing brown contact lenses – I remember his eyes as blue
angel & docks: My TRT is 25:14 on the feature. This is “Exhibit In Wax”, New Adventures, yes??
angel & docks: They made his blue eyes brown. Songwriter gonna be P.O.’d.
Godwinshelley3: NO – tonight is “Return of Charlie Chan” – the made for tv movie
angel & docks: OHHHHHHHHHH!
Rush2: “The Return of Chary Chan”
PaulM: with Ross Martin as CC
Godwinshelley3: I would HATE to be Chan’s cleaning woman – he sees everything
hounder: wb paul
Godwinshelley3: There is a link above to the Return film – though there are commercials inserted every 7 minutes
Rush2: The accursed auto-correct!
Godwinshelley3: hugh tie knot
angel & docks: I gotcha!! Thanks!
Godwinshelley3: Ties do seem to be a bit wide in this film
angel & docks: “Little more than a prostitute”. So what are YOU, a convenience-spy-store assistant manager?
angel & docks: I need a lover to answer my door.
angel & docks: One who won’t blow my cover.
angel & docks: Happiness is a warm [blank].
Godwinshelley3: The nozzel he saw was loose earlier
Godwinshelley3: Yes – the title – before Return
angel & docks: THIS Chan is a SHOWOFF. Anybody think if they’d made a series outta this, we’d develop affection?
angel & docks: I’d like to see Mr. Pitt (Elaine’s boss from Seinfeld) in this role.
Godwinshelley3: I do like Ross Martin in most things he does – though he is too believable as a bad guy
Rush2: We blame the director!
angel & docks: Rush2: Always. ALWAYS.
Rush2: I think this could have made a good hour-long TV series.
angel & docks: NEVER assume! Ain’t you watched any movies, boy?
Rush2: Maybe filmed on location in fifferent places.
angel & docks: What the heck is a hectare?
Godwinshelley3: Why the tan shirt and brown tie with the gray suit?
angel & docks: An Accursed Shirt. Is that anything like a Puffy Shirt?
Godwinshelley3: Isn’t that a coin from Greece or Mediterranean
Rush2: Not sure, but I have heard that term, Angel!
Rush2: I thought it related to the area measurement of land?
Godwinshelley3: No hectare is a unite of measure
hounder: hectare is kinda a metric acre
Godwinshelley3: you are right Rush
angel & docks: Hectare is actually a unit of area measure, something metric if i recall. But in my thousand attempts, i have never been able to remember How Much Is A Hectare even 30 seconds after i’ve been told & told again.
angel & docks: CLICK!
hounder: me either angel.
angel & docks: This might be the time to start.
angel & docks: hounder: Let’s forget hectares again. If this guy makes you an offer, tell him it’s already sold. Then call me so i give him the same story.
Godwinshelley3: So why do they go out of their way to Get Chan to do this, then complain about him
hounder: works angel
Rush2: That drink will help.
angel & docks: hounder: i’ll meet you at the bank. I’ll be wearing a blue herringbone. Caught a blue herring over the weekend.
Rush2: Complicated storyline, GS!
Godwinshelley3: I know – I don’t recall that much from my last viewing
Rush2: Every year, I understand it a little more!
angel & docks: I would never hang all those small square artworks thusly.
angel & docks: I don’t have to give him NOTHING. He’s no-count.
Rush2: Interests camera work there.
hounder: ouch agel
angel & docks: Anybody think her tendrils get in her mouth when she’s eating soup, or saucy pastas?
Rush2: Longer shot getting ever closer on Mrs. Hidrachi.
Godwinshelley3: This film always gives me claustrophobia – the filming seems so “tight”
Rush2: I know what you mean!
Godwinshelley3: She was a model – they don’t eat
angel & docks: Yes. WAY too tight.
Rush2: I think it may be that few if any sets were used!
angel & docks: I’m imagining Omar Sharif in EVERY role here.
Rush2: Actual rooms and locations.
Godwinshelley3: Rush – does Rachel knit or crochet?
angel & docks: Chan has identified them: they’re fingerprints.
Rush2: We really see and hear that when we have the scene at police headquarters.
angel & docks: Your vehicle warranty is expired, Mr. Chan!
angel & docks: hounder, i’m always out here pitchin’!!
Rush2: No, Rachel says, but her aunt does!
angel & docks: I have a Korean Accent.
angel & docks: A four-door, no AC.
Godwinshelley3: With the winters there – a good time to learn to make fingerless mittens and hats
hounder: you have a wonderfully off the wall humor.
angel & docks: AH.
angel & docks: He has to turn in his nose to Wardrobe.
Godwinshelley3: Are the commercials still dropping into your film
Rush2: It looks like the commercials have stopped!
angel & docks: No commercials here except the PLETHORA of irritating current ads YouTube stuffs on everything.
Godwinshelley3: Thats good
Rush2: Thank goodness!
angel & docks: Gilt.
angel & docks: He has an edge.
angel & docks: And securities.
angel & docks: Gilt-edged.
Rush2: Tysm for getting us through them GS!
angel & docks: You know a piano is gonna drop on his head.
Godwinshelley3: 1 hour – hard to stop now
Rush2: Gilt vs. guilt
angel & docks: Gilt guilt is the worst.
Godwinshelley3: The Chan girls don’t seem to do too much – and the non-Chan women are just annoying
Rush2: Rock out ‘70s style!
angel & docks: I WANT THIS RECORD!!
Rush2: And there is no Mrs. Chan
angel & docks: Torino? I thought we’d go in my Accent. A Gran Torino? Or the base model?
Godwinshelley3: He has been retired for 10 years when this starts – wonder when Mrs. Chan passed
angel & docks: Mine is fur-colored, with olive trim. Real olives, from Olivia.
Rush2: Or a Dodge Dart
angel & docks: MRS. CHAN PASSED? I hadn’t seen the papers!!
Godwinshelley3: It’s supposition
angel & docks: Dodge Darts were dodged art.
Rush2: We can only guess, GS
Godwinshelley3: Interesting outfit on Chan
angel & docks: They can take their suppositions & shove ’em up—well, just shove ’em up.
Rush2: We see that this Charlie Chan is multilingual.
angel & docks: I’ll have NO curtains in my stateroom.
Godwinshelley3: SShe was waiting for that
Rush2: Very dark.
angel & docks: Are the Hydrachis heavily invested in Hydrox?
Rush2: A longer aphorism there.
Godwinshelley3: the molasses one?
angel & docks: YO, HANSON!
angel & docks: I always get stuck on molasses.
angel & docks: Imagine having a prior yacht. Now THAT’S culture.
Rush2: “What happened in August 1963?
angel & docks: That mine is MINE!
angel & docks: Rush: I thought he said 1953.
Rush2: Yes, Angel.
Rush2: I heard 1963. I was thinking of President Kennedy.
Godwinshelley3: Arthur Ashe won the Davis tennis cup in august 1963 – first African american player
angel & docks: So which is it? We set the Wayback for ’53 & browse forward, or ’63 & window-shop back? Is there a Food Court?
Rush2: Four months before assassination.
Rush2: No food courts in 1963
angel & docks: GS3: I’ll bet the Davises were hard put to pour their punch after giving their big cup to A.A.
Godwinshelley3: “Louie, Louie” was released that month
angel & docks: If you have glaucoma & pull the wrong thing off a shelf, you could end up in a glue coma, could you not?
Godwinshelley3: Had our 1st Black graduate from Univ of Miss in Aug of 1963
angel & docks: Once “Louie Louie” was released they could never bottle him back, not even with A.A.
Godwinshelley3: Beatles released “She Loves You” in UK
Godwinshelley3: Big March on Washington by Martin Luther King Jr
Rush2: Good memory or work, GS!
Godwinshelley3: And they installed the FIRST hotline communication link between DC & Moscow
Rush2: Dripping water sound!
Godwinshelley3: Again – the music is just awful on this film
Rush2: Very ‘70d TVmovie music!
angel & docks: GS: VERY good! If Chan here had been on his toes & on a Convair 990, he might have flown to England, got the Beatles, hooked everybody up with JFK for a concert in late November—the limo in Dallas woulda been passengerless. Or maybe Chan coulda got Lyndon a ticket to ride.
Godwinshelley3: Like the music from the Nightstalker (Kolchak) made for TV movies
angel & docks: Wkaey wakey!
Godwinshelley3: Oh no – and he had invited that man to his house too!!
angel & docks: I do believe he’s crossed the Plimsoll line. The bounder!
angel & docks: HYDROXY to you.
Rush2: Chan is “painted” into a corner…
angel & docks: Rush: Bet he makes that van go.
Rush2: And paints his way out!
angel & docks: At “least”?
angel & docks: Rush: All characters will have to squeeze into the Tube at Picadilly.
Godwinshelley3: Do you think the traffic noise in the background is actual
angel & docks: That’s HYDROXY.
Rush2: Can we tell where the TV commercials were to be placed?
angel & docks: Traffic WERE playing in London those days.
Godwinshelley3: yes – obvious were the breaks fell
Rush2: Note the sound reflects how this was shot in a room?
angel & docks: Chan is gonna wrap that enigma in a mystery.
Rush2: Mentioned this earlier.
Rush2: Yes, Angel.
Godwinshelley3: Yes – location shooting
Rush2: Hence the tight shots.
angel & docks: I have a teacozy looks like her hat.
angel & docks: HYDROXY!
angel & docks: My baby wrote me a letter.
Godwinshelley3: Ross has the ring like the other Chans
Rush2: The Boxtops.
angel & docks: Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane. Ain’t got time to take a fat train.
Rush2: You are right, GS!
Rush2: A fat, FAST train!
angel & docks: The Manchester Guardian? Incriminating article? Why, they run nothing but! We can get tomorrow’s edition tonight—they deliver by fat train.
angel & docks: By FAST fat train!!
angel & docks: I always whack people thusly.
angel & docks: THAT’S HYDROXY! Gimme my Guardian.
angel & docks: PEEK, Charlie! You have PIQUED us all!!
angel & docks: Only WE would know what a “typewriter” is, or what “stencil” was.
Rush2: Set at “stencil “.
hounder: sorry to be in and out. Mom’s having a jack in the box night.
Godwinshelley3: Sorry to hear that Hounder
Rush2: That’s okay, Hounder!
angel & docks: hounder, we’re glad to have you to extent possible. You must think outside the box, to get Ma in.
Rush2: John Sebastian…
angel & docks: JOHN SEBASTIAN? And the Cocaine Spoonful?
angel & docks: I want to pose as a victim sometime.
hounder: today she keeps thinking i sold the house and we’re moving.
PaulM has left this room
Godwinshelley3: Oh that’s hard
angel & docks: HU was that masked man!! HU, HU i tell you!!
Godwinshelley3: Ah – the capes were so fashionable then too
angel & docks: And the Lovin’ Spoonful? With Hydrox?
