Phil: Came from China, what can you say?

Phil: Oop, I’m not supposed to write that.

sarabell2: What did he eat for lunch?

Mike n Rachel in DC: The conspiracy theorists are on it already…

Rush: “In Honolulu schools, E not symbol for excellence.”

Rush: Inspector Duff saves the day.

Phil: “E” is for enough of covid talk. We’re in 1940 right now.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Seems like a nice guy…

Rush: Grade scale was A, B, C, D, E, and F.

Dave: Character of Duff is in one of the lost films, I believe

Phil: Body count starts early tonight as I recall.

Rush: Yes…1940.

Rush: The “Southland.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes…and this one is tough on the can inventory!

Phil: It’s in-cog-NEE-toe.

Rush: It is!

Rush: And, he is!

Phil: I think the fastest body count starts in CC in Egypt.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush, there should be a Chan trivia quiz…

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Phil: I’m watching the movie on Youtube on my TV. Picture quality is good. Usually I watch on DVD.

Dave: Do we know the biggest body count…?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sinister figure lurks outside window…

Rush: Phil, you might be right, but “The Jade Mask” has to be close!

Rush: Got him!

Godwinshelley2: NEVER turn your back to the window in Charlie’s office

Mike n Rachel in DC: 7:00 for this one

Rush: Garroted!

Rush: Yes…7 minutes in.

Phil: Cue the can

Mike n Rachel in DC: Seems like Jade Mask/Egypt might beat that

Matt1: <tin can>

Rush: We need the official announcement.

Dave: Duff trailing strangler…uh…

Phil: I maybe living a second or two in the future Rush.

Rush: So far, it’s an “attack.”

Rush: Jimmy’s roadster that we saw in “Honolulu.”

Rush: Isn’t this character similar to another we saw in an earlier film?

Rush: Yes to the shadow.

Rush: Effective!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sn!

Rush: Dimes.

Dona: connecting door opens?

Phil: Right, we always leave the door between rooms unlocked.

Mike n Rachel in DC: That could be embarrassing…just sayin’

Rush: Maybe it was unlocked after the discovery of the murder?

Rush: The house detective probably unlocked it.

Dave: Looks like he ordered pay per view movies in next room!

Phil: Whoa, tmi.

Dave: Looks warm…

Rush: Yes he does.

Mike n Rachel in DC: True, Dave

Rush: Maybe the tour went through the Panama Canal and stopped at Fu Yuen’s on the way!
