Matt1: Delayed response here in room tonight
Rush: We are all going back for Easter.
Matt1: Very good
Matt1: To the new house?
Rush: I have not had the dreaded delay, yet…

hounder has joined this room
Matt1: Very good…..In State should be less expensive too!
Rush: We will be looking to rent it out for a year, then make the move in June 2021.
Matt1: Hello Hounder!
Rush: Much less expensive.
Rush: Plus, we will be able to pay off the mortgage.
Matt1: Less congested too, I would imagine!
Rush: Oh, YES.
hounder: hi all
Rush: I was thinking of the difference this morning as I drove sarah to school and then going from there to work.
Matt1: Hope you are well Hounder
Rush: Hello, Hounder!
Rush: How are you and how is Mom?
hounder: I’m well. Mom is as well as can be. thanks for asking.
Rush: Well, you ARE in our thoughts.

Rush: (Including PRAYERS, of course!)
hounder: thanks rush
Matt1: LOVE Disney!…..Hope you had some fun

Cdirus: Hi guys!

angel & fox has joined this room
hounder: hi a n f
Matt1: Hello A & F
Cdirus: Hi Angel and fox!
angel & fox: A snappy hello!!
angel & fox: Nice to be here for the start!!
Rush: And to YOU, too!
Matt1: 4 hours for a 4 minute ride….Bravo! It is the best ride at Disney though, IMHO
angel & fox: Excuse please, 2 questions burn in mind…
Rush: Oh…just as bad as Disney LAND.
Rush: I tire of the crowds and competition for space.
Rush: Yes, Angel?
angel & fox: 1) is tonight’s Green Hornet chapter EIGHT, or NINE? On Message Board the notes say “The Hornet Trapped”…
Rush: The link is above.
Matt1: Yep….If I don’t have a FastPass….I won’t wait in the lines, but I do get to DW frequently
hounder: i would definitely do it again, but no, i’m not waiting that long for any ride. then again the star wars rise of the resistance ride is out of boarding passes in 95 seconds.
Rush: Sorry…my mistake on the title, maybe?
angel & fox: On YouTube, “The Hornet Trapped” is NINE; Chapter EIGHT is “Dead or Alive”. Which is tonight’s episode?
Cdirus: The link takes me to chapter 9, the hornet trapped
hounder: i don’t know angel, i just clicked on rush’s link
Rush: Chapter 9 – “THe Hornet Trapped”
angel & fox: Yes, gentlemen…
Matt1: I have Chapter 9 cued
Rush: Me too.
Rush: Well…if we are ALL ready…?
angel & fox: So we want Chapter NINE, The Hornet Trapped. Got it! NOW—2nd question…
hounder: ready here
Rush: 20 seconds…
angel & fox: Q2: i tried last week to post a Question about The Canon, CAN’T POST IT, “captcha” problems.
angel & fox: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

angel & fox: Gracias, hounder!!
Alidea has left this room
Rush: That was quick!
angel & fox: Fran SWATTER, shoulda been.
Cdirus: Hi Alidea!
hounder: did we scare her?
angel & fox: Star Wars stole this typographic style, i KNEW it.
Matt1: Was it something I said?
angel & fox: Probably, Matt. It was YOU.
angel & fox: I like the uniform. Flaming beautiful!
angel & fox: Sponsored by Kevlar.
Rush: Firefighters arrive.
angel & fox: Hey, Mugsy. Cheese it!
Cdirus: almost a head on colision1
angel & fox: Real road-holders, the new ’37 models.
Matt1: Like the Indy 500
Rush: YES! Nearly causing acccidents!
Rush: “Follow that buzzing car!”:
angel & fox: Nearly? ACCIDENTS??!
Rush: Good use of some stock footage…
angel & fox: Just dumb enough.
Rush: Kato DID cut off some people!
angel & fox: Matt, i think it MAY have been me. Alidea sounds like an ottoman name.
Rush: What a ride!
angel & fox: BTW: the Indy 600. Into the valley of the 600 rode the—ah, you take it, Kato.
angel & fox: “Axford” looks like a paunchy Lurch.
angel & fox: Axford has NO IDEA Reid & Kato are crassdressers.
Rush: Crass-dressing heroes…
angel & fox: Just tell me about the dying rackets. I’m in a hurry here.
angel & fox: The DA will put someone dirty on the cleaning rackets.
angel & fox: Rush:
Rush: “Prowling” music…
angel & fox: Good idea. They’ll be at 219 4th Street while you’re getting away down 7th Street.
angel & fox: I LOVE the “telescope” wipes!!
angel & fox: Was that a Chrysler Airflow?
Rush: I am not sure, Angel, but it’s a classic!
angel & fox: Damn. This car has suicide doors. I TOLD YOU to steal one with HOMICIDE DOORS!
angel & fox: I like the wire wastebaskets. Chewing gum would just fall right thru. Spreading colonnavirus (named after its discoverer Jerry Colonna).
Rush: I was thinking…WHY was he wasting so much time when someone entering through the first door?
Matt1: Blames on the ammo? Ok
angel & fox: A guy with a vial of Tetragene could truncate this series right smart.
Rush: Of course it’s the ammo!
Rush: That’s one DANGEROUS neighborhood for pedestrians!
angel & fox: “We ordered it from the Bammo Ammo company—they’re the famous subsidiary of Acme. How could this be?
PaulM has joined this room
Rush: Good evening!
angel & fox: Howdy Paul!!
Cdirus: Hi Paul!
Rush: WELCOME to you!
Matt1: Hello Paul!
Rush: Smoke screen!
Rush: 13:15, Paul…
PaulM: good evening
angel & fox: We see here why so few prewar cars remain, why their powertrains & chassis are out-of-state—why so few prewar STOREFRONTS remain.
hounder: hi paul
Rush: Of course he left off the name!
Rush: How are you tonight, Paul?
angel & fox: That’s all “(s)he” wrote. Gender is a revolving paradigm, poor dope.
angel & fox: On the spot(s).
Rush: Cy Kendall.
angel & fox: The Sentinel had a department on each Page 5, “Damaging Editorial”.
angel & fox: That’s Hornet McCoy to you.
angel & fox: LAIR—or LIAR?
angel & fox: Yeah, overturn that Crooks’ Hangout. Send the crooks spreading all over the state. Next: the Middle East.
Rush: If the plants are on fire…it’s a lair….If the PANTS are burning…it’s a LIAR.
angel & fox: I’ll cover the waterfront.
angel & fox: Rush:
Rush: And, I’ll rush ’em.
angel & fox: I’ll be wit’cha, with pants on fire.
angel & fox: There are NO houses for rent in Tuscany.
Rush: Courtesy “THe Castaways”
angel & fox: YOUR house?
angel & fox: I like the balustrades.
Rush: I almost expect to see larry, Moe, and Curly running through….
angel & fox: Don’t shoot the Tetragene!

Rush: I keep trying to get her to find some way to get online on a Monday…but I have not succeeded yet!
angel & fox: Speaking of Virginia, i’m going to Carolina in my Ford, to feel sunshine, see the moonshine, hope nobody hits me from behind.
Matt1: Well, she’s missed here.
Rush: She lives on a pretty tight budget.
angel & fox: Seriouskly, give Our regards.
Rush: She always sends he best to everyone.

Rush: TYSM, Matt…nice gong!
Rush: SS “Nestor” lost!
hounder: extra extra ead all about it
Phil: I’m typing with latex gloves on out of fear of corona virus.
Rush: maybe that was the ship that Laurel and Hardy were supposed to have been aboard in “Sons of the Desert”!
angel & fox: Phil, i’ll make you executor of my Estate.
Rush: Stock footage…
Phil: Ok, but I’ll have to do it remotely.
PaulM: i was about to say, Rush
angel & fox: Psst…Lady Notty…meet us at our estate?…In the Hampshire Cotswolds past Hooping Coff…Foxlogo. We have twin turrets.
angel & fox: His father’s mustache.
angel & fox: THIRTY persons—or DIRTY persons?
Rush: He ship-hiked.
angel & fox: Maybe he jumped the shark.
Nothere: Maybe dirty at the start, but not after the boak sank.
angel & fox: A.C. was a real sparkplug.
Rush: You may be correct, Angel….
Phil: Obviously water proof ink.
angel & fox: Rush, it’s not me. I’m just the mouthpiece for F. here.
Phil: Hey, did we miss a tin can?
angel & fox: Nice GAMS, CC!
Phil: We got a dead body.
hounder: does charlie have on brown socks or no socks in this scene?
Rush: When I saw an exhibit of “Titanic” artifacts, it was amazing to see how well preserved some of the paper items were!
angel & fox: Hounder, i’ve been afraid to find out. Digital technology makes a lotta stuff visible that—hmmmm…
angel & fox: That whig’s worse than Billy Henry Harrison’s.
Rush: I vote for brown, Hounder.
angel & fox: They got ASTONISHING biceps back then from lifting those phone receivers.
angel & fox: I’ll BET she’ll shanghai Dick.
Dona: I love Baxter in this one
Rush: An accidental reference to last week’s movie a few lines ago…

Rush: CC arrives via Clipper…
Cdirus has left this room

Cdirus has joined this room
Nothere: WB CD
angel & fox: When i see this scene i’d like to cut in the famous W.C.Fields falling-thru-sky-having-dived-out-of-airplane-to-retrieve-jettisoned-liquor-bottle scene.
Matt1: wb CD!
Rush: WB, CD!
Cdirus: Was wondering what happened
Rush: Time is NOT on HIS side!
angel & fox: CD fell out same as WC. WB, CD, WC!
Nothere: <TIN CAN> See thats what happens whenyou don’t wait for someone to come to the door.
Phil: Cue the can!
angel & fox: A time to die.
Rush: Off by 28 minutes.
angel & fox: I’ll BET he went out on a story.
Rush: I think Matt awaits verification!
angel & fox: I’m always nervous when i come to Hollywood Squares.
Phil: Matt is a traditionalist.
angel & fox: GOATS upon the battlements!
Rush: Possibly movie cat “Puzzums.”
angel & fox: Goats, squirrels…
Rush: Hm…a seance for flowers…
angel & fox: Mr. BEAN?
Phil: Should be lillies
angel & fox: Lilies of the Valley of the Whatever.
Rush: Baxter is Birmingham before Birmingham…
angel & fox: Seems a spot of antihistamine is indicated.
Phil: That set looks like it could have come out of the movie Frankenstein
angel & fox: Birmingham was probably at a lunch counter.
Rush: Yes, phil.
Cdirus: Very creepy house
angel & fox: So reign on me.
Rush: Yes, CD.
angel & fox: His HEAD look like 150% size of BODY?
hounder: creepy people in a creepy house
Phil: Here comes Mr. Cranky
Rush: Agreed, Hounder.
Rush: And a bit eccentric.
Rush: Especially Ulrich!
angel & fox: Think he is in Scandinavia. In Lapland. Debit card shows transactions post-date of unfortunate incident. Transactions: “Lap dances”, $2 each.
angel & fox: Will go personally to investigate these Lap dances.
Phil: Creative A&F lol
Rush: Note the crab above the door.
angel & fox: Phil, i’m banking on quantity, hoping to swerve into quality occasionally.
angel & fox: Note the crab AT the door.
Nothere: Be sure to bring your lederhosen angel.
Dona: I missed it
Rush: “Best place for skeleton is in family closet.”
angel & fox: This was not only before LBJ, this was before LED.
Phil: Those two are Hungarians or I’m NOT!
Dona: this is true a&f
angel & fox: I’m focusing like a laser beam.
Rush: CC peeks…
angel & fox: Thanks, Dona. I KNEW someone would know history backward AND forward.
Rush: Cue music…
Rush: My question as always…
Rush: WHO held Colby’s body at the stairs?
Nothere: Slight pause but I’ll be back except I can’t be back I’m not here:)
Dona: everyone looks shifty
angel & fox: Notty, we’ll see you around the traces.
Matt1: <tin can>
hounder: alan is definitely dead now.
Phil: He’s definitely dead now.
Rush: TYSM, Matt…
Nothere has left this room
Rush: Death verified!
Phil: He’s been dead so long he’s starting to smell.
angel & fox: The SCORPION?
Rush: “Dead for four hours…”
Cdirus: no autopsy?
Nothere has joined this room
Rush: That places us at about 9:30 p.m. now.
angel & fox: He was probably worried about colonnavirus. Were i a scorpion i’d glove-up too.
Rush: WB, NT!
Nothere: 22 min about right?
angel & fox: Notty, you missed one Tin Can.
angel & fox: Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Tin Can?
Nothere: Oh yeah <Tin CAN> <TIN CAN? <TIN CAN> <TIN CAN>
angel & fox: Money for nothing, get the chicks for free. Then Fox eat chicks, with eggs.
Nothere: Take that Angel. and this <THENDER> and this meow <MEOW> and finally this arrow. <WHOOSH>
Rush: Ah…when MTV actually played music….
angel & fox: Hey, Mr. Potatohead—i FOUND your NOSE!!
angel & fox: Video killed the radio start/
Rush: The first video aired on MTV…
Rush: “Solve mystery, cure headache.”
Phil: Inquisition…no one expects the Spanish inquisition
angel & fox: They oughtn’t need ANY help. They’re The Authorities.
angel & fox: The Danish inquisition, yes.
Rush: CC mentions Lee.
angel & fox: This guy’s a honk at parties.
Nothere: “I Wanna Rock.” Said my sister, but she’s a bit twisted:)
Phil: He does have a big haid doesn’t he
Rush: “Toast master”
angel & fox: I’ll BET he’s a toast master.
angel & fox: Phil, thanks for confirming my observation! I think it’s time The Boys in Washington were informed, don’t you?
Rush: Very “Birmingham-esque.”
angel & fox: Tetragene!
Nothere: Scotch and soda
angel & fox: I’ll trust fate on the soda. Give us the other stuff, quick.
Rush: “You don’t think. You THINK you think. I think.”
angel & fox: Especially the Bill Gates. Put up the sign: NO BILLS.
Cdirus: That’s a pretty sturdy table. Try that with a modern table.
Rush: No thanks, CD!
Nothere: No no I wasn’t trying to deceive you. You were paying me so much I just wanted to give you a few unknown bells and whistles you might misinterpret.
Rush: YES, NT!
Phil: Yeah, well for somebody who thinks they think, you certainly got fooled.
Rush: Yes, Phil.
Rush: I think that Baxter would not have been as gullible.
angel & fox: She’s shocked, SHOCKED to find gambling going on in the casino.
Nothere: But she had Baxter who only think he think so it evened out to a think.
Rush: “Role of dead man require very little acting.”
Rush: Ultraviolet light…
angel & fox: ROLL of dead man even LESS!
angel & fox: Ultra Violet. She was one of Andy Warhol’s singers, remember?
Rush: I do.
Rush: Music slowly builds….
Rush: There’s where all that money went.
Rush: Look out!
angel & fox: Ray Lamp. He was the drummer, i think. Tall, geeky hair—
Rush: CC fires back!
angel & fox: SPIDER. That reminds me, Rush—
Rush: so, we know he’s packing a gun.
Rush: Yes, Angel?
hounder: this is one of the few movies where charlie carries and fires a gun, right.

Dona: Hi GS
Rush: How did the surgery go?
angel & fox: Rush, check out your FB Messenger; i Messaged you about my inability to post on our Message Board; in the item i wanted to post i referred to you as A Spider. A very positive Spider, be assured. Can you tell me why the Post doesn’t function? At your leisure, when you’re relaxed at center of your web?
Rush: HM. You mean our Message Board, HERE?
Godwinshelley3: Just a quick drop in -mom came thru surgery – home – getting in trouble picking up things
angel & fox: He’ll wipe that mustache right off your lying ponysoldier dogface, dogface.
angel & fox: GS, we hope for the best.
Rush: Yes, GS! Make her listen to doctor’s orders!
hounder: good news gs. praying good news continues
Godwinshelley3: I’m going to be out here for awhile – waiting to hear if she needs radiation
angel & fox: Day and Knight. They wear blue zootsuits.
Rush: Okay, GS…

Phil: GN GS
Rush: Angel, I just took a look at our Message board…seems to be working.
angel & fox: Thank you so much, POTATONOSE.
Rush: You won’t be able to reach me via Facebook.
Rush: CC investigates the secret passage…
Dona: really dark
Rush: Let’s see where it comes out…
Rush: AH! Right by Ulrich’s place!
Phil: It comes out at Bilbo’s house
Rush: This could be a clue as to who may have taken Colby’s body over to the seance room to hold it there.
Rush: “NO! I use that radio to get news from Germany…”
Nothere: Ah yes the creepy caretaker. Sorry dude this is a mystery movie not a horror. Your your all doomed sthick isn’t impressing anyone.
angel & fox: Rush, i do the Captcha thing, press Submit (or Preview, either), & it redirects back to Message Board page. I’ve re-entered my info, tried at least 10 times. I’m gonna get my IT consultant on it after school tomorrow. She’s in 3rd grade, is a big help.
Phil: Could be coronavirus. Charlie’s chinese you know.
angel & fox: Somehow i doubt it’s this guy’s first radio.
hounder: ouch angel
Phil: He could be a german spy.
Rush: Just go to our “Message Board,” Angel…once you enter, click on “Start New Topic.” Yo may then type what you like and then post.
Rush: Carlotta was a dupe as well.
angel & fox: I’ll try again, Rush. That’s what i’ve been doing; i’ll do it yet again & watch my steps. Thanks.
Rush: In fact, if anyone here would like to post there, please do!
hounder: was that an astrolab in the last scene?
Rush: Looked like one, yes!
angel & fox: Astrolabes are always in style.
Phil: Oh Oh
Rush: Professor Bowen got goin’.
angel & fox: Their fists was fast as lightning.
angel & fox: Look for Little Sammy Chong.
Phil: This cop is kind of a butt.
Rush: Or…”his fist was zapped by lightnin'”
angel & fox: That’s DETECTIVE Butt to you, Phil!
Rush: Phil, there are often cops in the series who start of antagonistic to Chan…won over in the end!
angel & fox: “Blow-Off”. Would that be a Fellini film not yet made?
Nothere: You will all bow before my mustache.
Rush: Ulrich would have made a wonderful father-in-law….
angel & fox: Money money money she’s got ratpoison in her tummy, or WILL later tonite.
Phil: And then I berate Baxter for another hour.
Rush: Note she is rather “stiff.”
Phil: Let’s see, two guys hiding behind the tree. Three guys standing out in the open.
angel & fox: Phil:
Nothere: 5 guys
Phil: Her haid would have exploded all over that table.
angel & fox: This must be the Gates Gate.
Rush: True Phil.
Phil: haid = head
angel & fox: That vase (or vahzz) is just waiting to get tumbled.
Phil: Your mum just got splashed.
angel & fox: Anybody wonder if maybe those hats attracted murder?
Rush: Chan takes the blame…
angel & fox: Tin can.
Rush: “I’m sorry I lost my head…”
angel & fox: She’s a quick study.
Rush: Chan gives a clue here…
Phil: She’s sorry she lost her head…hahaha
Rush: Her mom is even MORE sorry!
angel & fox: Were this film made today, Chan would break down, then get a lawyer & charge hurt feelings.
Rush: Or something like that…
Dona: and win
angel & fox: Would OWN own police station. Then GET sued.
Nothere: No can. Nothere no can:)

angel & fox: Falling music!
Dona: he hasn’t caught the killer yet
Rush: Weird thought, but I wonder if Lee Harvey Oswald ever watched this film?
PaulM has left this room
angel & fox: As “somebody” would say, “ohey-dokes”—who would THAT be?
Rush: Watch this scene closely as Baxter is next to the vase.
angel & fox: okey-dokes.
Dona: ok rush
Rush: An actual sharp shooter was used for this scene!
angel & fox: OOOOOPS!
Dona: good shot
Rush: Note Baxter is not wet.
hounder: that would be a scary scene
Rush: I read where theveryone in the area was spatterd by water when that was literally shot.
angel & fox: Birmingham would have done that scene with PERFECTION.
Rush: Bowen was connected for sure.
angel & fox: How about a short ride to THE CLINK?
Rush: And…SOMEONE was holding the body of Colby during that seance.
angel & fox: Say that 5 times fast.
Rush: We never find that one out.
Rush: “Well, you’re HERE, brother…”
Nothere: So we’ve assembled everyone who might have knives, guns, possibly posision, and a murderous intent. Did anybody check for weapons?
Rush: That would be a good idea.
Rush: $1.5 million today…
angel & fox: Dad and his police will be here—
Nothere: Oh please I don’t even consider murdering anyone for less than 1.7 mill:)
angel & fox: Notty, you’re keeping our crust upper.
Nothere: And buttered. On top of course. Stick put your pinkies you philistines.
