TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Damn doubledamn, Mrs. P, ME TOO. I HATE YT ads, will NOT pay their tribute—

Mike in DC: was he ill during the filming of this movie?

Mrs P: I wonder how many Chan films have fog horns.

Rush: I know, Angel…

Rush: You can click them off after 5 seconds.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Wonder how many have leg horns!

Mrs P: LOL

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Rush, yes, but even so—

Rush: “Ouch” Angel!

Rush: 🙂

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: And it puts us off sync.

Mike in DC: Couples out for a romantic and suspicious walk in the fog

Mrs P: SO misterious

Mrs P: Mysterious

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Rush, if you ever tell The Authorities how many bad puns i’ve done—well—

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Art trteasures!

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: KNIFE!

Rush: The eyes…

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: They’ll get released.

Rich Maine: Stabbed on the back…for real!

Rush: Now…hopefully this will work right…


Nothere: Well he got Neptune’s point.

PaulM has left this room

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: If he wasn’t a goner at first, rolling off the chair onto his back can’t have helped.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: SECOND ad on YT.

Rush: True, Angel!

Mrs P: pop always appreciates holp

Rush: Indeed!

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Don’t toss that can overboard

Nothere: Can I leave the saloon?

Rush: No…we will need it later.

Mrs P: right now my house looks ransacked

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Rush, Foxx & i are in constant contact via this Web thing, with autopsists in the area. Any who are idle, are highlighted on screen & Foxx & i arrange work for them.

Rush: NT…the adding of a simple “o” can make quite a difference!

Nothere: See any fog, odd shadows, or flying knives Mrs. P?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Hot money is cool.

Rush: Gotcha, Angel!

Mrs P: No, Nothere, not that I’ve noticed

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: He’s a VERY petty officer.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: When CC says “Excuse please”, even E.F.Hutton listend.

Rush: This guy!

Rush: How would you like to share a dinner table with HIM???

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: He looks like REID FLEMING, World’s Toughest Milkman.

Rush: 🙂

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Ichthyologists indeed! Sounds fishy.

Rush: 🙂

Mrs P: lol

Rush: Ans smells the same!

Rush: Tao Erickson.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: SAMOA spelt backward is a good idea.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Onlookers look like they’ve been drugged.

Rush: AO mas?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Rush, SHHHHHHHH!

hounder: ”

Rush: The Robert Lewis Stevenson Memorial in Apia.

Mrs P: poofy sleeves

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Though it looks like THAT one could float.

Rush: Yes, Angel.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Mrs P, would you say there’s a derivative line from poofy sleeves to puffy shirts?

Mrs P: I know, I’ve got a cigar

Rush: And when the sock is off…put it in his mouth!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: His jowls got bigger just since the last shot.

Mrs P: I expect Seinfeld to show up any minute

Rush: 🙂

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Lots of vouching.

Mike in DC: Big foghorn role in this one

Rush: The liner…

Mrs P: whole lot of vouching going on

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: So are the guests still under indictment, waiting for Neptune to reopen court? What gives?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: A THIRD YT ad.

Mike in DC: Couldn’t get the grand jury to indict, Angel

Rush: Some info…

Rush: In Dangerous Money, we see the S.S. Newcastle arrive in Pago Pago, American Samoa through the use of stock footage. The ship shown as the Newcastle is probably the S.S. Mariposa which belonged to the famous Matson Navigation Company. The Matson “white ships” became famous for their service to the Hawaiian Islands as well as other Pacific destinations, including Pago Pago, American Samoa.

Nothere: Curses Charlie has canceled open mic night

Hawaii_Steve: Yes, Rush.

dona: interesting

dona: thank you

Rush: You are welcome!

Mrs P: great info

Rush: The arrival footage is really nice.

Rush: We see the radio tower that we saw in one of Steve’s extras.

Nothere: SAfe course? With a murderer running around?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Rush, i’ve wondered about Candy Matson, Girl Detective. No means of support i can detect, as she always ends up comp-ing each episode. Could Candy Matson have had a tap into a big vein in the steamer biz?

Rush: Borrowing the BB Theme here…

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Deformance!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Music is excellent. Great “signature”.

Mrs P: yes

Rush: Immediate removal of the liver..

Nothere: Time for them to operate

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: We need MORE of this in our modern healthcare infrastructure!!

Mrs P: other criminologist LOL

Rush: 🙂

Mrs P: cell phone

Rush: Cute move there!

Nothere: Sorry Mrs P. 1940s it would have to be phone in cell.

hounder: old fashioned criminals

Rush: OR… a walkie-talkie!

Rush: Jimmy has one here!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: I wish they’d spun off a series of “Sitting Assistants” movies. Coulda maintained the franchise a few years, with BB and various Sons working mayhem, “Chan” PHONING IN.

Rush: early “cell phone”!

Rush: Army surplus!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: We’re at 21:15. What’s correct TIME?

Rush: I have…

Rush: 21:55

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: ROGER spelt backward is SECRET.

Rush: 22:10…

Rush: 22:30

Nothere: Bah walkie talkies will never replace the telegraph. And we always have the pony express.

Rush: “Folding money talks.”

Rush: NT: 🙂

Rush: The professor is readin a book totled “Fish.”

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: FOURTH ad. The ads are what have put us behind: 5 secs x 4 = 20 secs off.

Rush: Sorry, Angel.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: ONE SHOVE . . .

Rush: That’s today’s Youtube.

Mrs P: I jumped ahead in anticipation of ads

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Hey, Rush, not YOUR fault!

Rush: Good idea, Mrs. P!

Mrs P: I’ll try to avoid spoilers

Rush: YES!

Rich Maine: Hot money hot money hot pockets!

Rush: Indeed!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: I did what Mrs. P did, jumped the opening actually, but YT still put us behind.

Mrs P: Charlie’s got a trick up his sleeve.

Mrs P: too soon?

Rush: Note CC’s hat.

dona: lol

Rush: The leg shake…

Mike in DC: eeeeek

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Nice spooky lighting

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Have you ever seen a cabin on a cruise ship that big?

Rush: “Include me OUT”

Mike in DC: Yes, Dona. Nor very private

Mrs P: It’s #2 son

Rich Maine: Drink tea with fork

Rush: I have not experienced a cruise ship, yet.

Rush: I did travel on a freighter a few times. My cabin was usually the deck!

Mrs P: I need to check my storage for dvds and dvd player.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Rush, it’s like a round trip via Uber.

Rich Maine: Ur missing out rush…Best experience ever

Mike in DC: x/y = ?

Rush: Uber, Under, Sideways Down”

Rush: Is there a shipbord pool on the murder?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: I hope they do The Peabody.

Mike in DC: Still on “Fish” Wonder when he’ll get to “Insects”

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: The fish guy doesn’t dance.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: For a fin he might.

Nothere: As for cabin room, have you seen the room in the planes in this series? Thiese cabins are where the poor hang out.

Rush: Hm!

hounder: charlie is still dancing

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Swedish fish are not all swedish. Not all fish.

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Siva-Siva.

Mike in DC: Isn’t Siva some evil goddess?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: I like how she pronounces the “z” in Polynezian.

Rush: on another continent, yes!

Rush: In samoa…no.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: What are they applauding? Edison’s not there.

Rush: 🙂

Mike in DC: Ah. Note to self: Stick to Samoan Sivas.

Rush: Suspects leave…

Rush: Blackmailers.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: One of Joe Stalin’s boys.

Rush: “Redistribution of wealth…”

Mike in DC: “I know a few tricks myself.” Yeah, right. So does Charlie.

Nothere: Mike your thinking of Shiva. A hindu god.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: In our dream-remake cast, we had Gorbachev penciled in for the Burke role. What now?

Rush: Chan is puting the pieces together…

Rush: How many passengers trip over that door jamb?

Nothere: Actually Charlie has thirteen kids on a cops salary. For all the luxury accomidations and world travel , he must really chare for these out of town cases.

Rush: Yes, NT!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Notty, they’re critical. The cases, i mean.

Mike in DC: Tonight’s special: Grilled Whatever-we-killed-this-afternoon

Nothere: I’ll have dinner after I slipped into a sarong.

Rush: She,s having similar luck to Joe in his coffee shop!

Nothere: Perhaps she needs a jukebox?

Rush: I think that Chan’d Panama style tonight is called the “P”lantation.

Rush: Sorry about the typos!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: TIME?? SIXTH ad!

Rush: YOW!

Mike in DC: 46:30

Rush: 46:20

Mike in DC: time warp

Rush: Mike is closer to correct!

Rush: I started a few seconds late.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Thanks, Rush! Got close now. Again. We hate YouTube.

Rush: Understood, Angel!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: You are a soiled American.

Mike in DC: furtive? white fox fur-tive?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: THUNNNNNNNK


TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Sir Walter Raleigh’s collar might have saved a life here.

Nothere: More flying knives. Strange weather around here.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Climate change, NT

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: ‘Tis indeed a cutting gale.


Rush: THERE!

Rush: Loaded dice.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Oh dem bones.

Mike n Rachel in DC has left this room

Mike n Rachel GRRR has joined this room

Rush: This is good use of a small set!

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: I was just thinking that, Rush

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Wait, she is The Rona! Way ahead of the disease…

Rush: Louise, this is one reason why i would like to learn if WordPress offers any Chat Rooms.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: I noticed Rona too! Thought of Rona Barrett!

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: I’ll check tomorrow, Rush.

Rush: I love these rear-projected moonlit sea scenes!

Rush: More Siva-Siva…

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: I just looked—Rona Barrett is still alive, will be 86 in 2 weeks!

Rush: TYSM, Louise!

Nothere: Welcome Racheal. We all cried when we heard you wouldn’t be here.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: ANYTHING but PUNJIPUNJI!!

Mike n Rachel GRRR: Rach is very glad to be here

Rush: Also, when the time omes, how do we actually put the site out there?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Hey! Hiya, Ms.R!!

dona: Hello Rachel

Rush: When I type the address now, it looks linke the promotion of a BLOG comes up.

Rush: Hello, rachel!

Rush: Welcome!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Does ANYONE wear monocles anymore? Did they ever, in real life? I don’t believe it.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: back from back to band night…fortunately the parents were well-behaved

dona: They do in a lot of the books I read. LOL

Nothere: Sorry Rush I don’t even know what WordPress is, so I have no helful suggestions. Now if you want useless jokes I got you covered.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: Col. Klink had a monocle.

Rush: here is where we see the box turtle with the flashlight.

Rush: The “Lugosi octopus”

dona: that’s true so they must be real

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Col. Klink certainly DID! We think he’s the modern standard for monocles!

Mike n Rachel GRRR: Bela Lugosi had a scene like this in Plan 9 from Outer Space…

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Fishy money.

dona: lol

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: It was one of the BEST scenes he had in “Plan 9”. Cuz he only made like 3 scenes before the heroin took him home.

Rush: We have a turtle like that one.

Rush: Minus the flashlight.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: The Electric Turtle is timeless.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: The Electric Turtle…sounds like a 70s band

Rush: 🙂

Rush: YES!

dona: lollol

dona: lol

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Every one of those stools has its own Depression.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: we are dating ourselves, guys. 🙂

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Nice stools

Hawaii_Steve: Excuse me, Angel, but you are incorrect. Mr. Lugosi was drug-free at the time of Plan 9.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Today, these folks would all just text each other across the room.

Rush: I was thinking the same, Angel.

Rush: The eyes!

Hawaii_Steve: In the mid-1990s, one of my friend was Hope Lugosi. AKA Mrs. Bela Lugosi.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: English horn death music for this one

Rich Maine: Is this film highest body count?

Mike n Rachel GRRR: <tin-can>

Rush: Those darts must pe poison-tipped!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: HSteve, you ARE INDEED CORRECT, sir. No libel of Mr.Lugosi was intended, in our purely situation-opportunistic quip.

Rush: He got it in his side.

Hawaii_Steve: Mrs. Lugosi and I spoke in detail about Bela’s condition.


TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: REALLY? I really shall trim my sails. Much respect to all.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: He struggled with drugs, right Steve?

Rush: The Gauguin!

Rush: Super valuable today!

Hawaii_Steve: At the time, I met Mrs. L., she was a kind and sweet woman. Little did I know that she was dying of cancer.

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: nice turtle

Rush: 🙂

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Steve, what was it carried off Bela?

Rush: Yes, Steve?

Mike n Rachel GRRR: That’s sad, Steve

Rush: When was that?

Mike n Rachel GRRR: Was she Hungarian?

Nothere: My fish only has fifties, can we trade?

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Bela was actually a way cool, not-understood serious actor. I’ve read a couple of bios of him.

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Lights out!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: We’ll trade, Notty.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: Finally there’s a light switch where it’s expected

Rush: An interesting gun fight here!

Rush: And shot knives!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Better than shot glasses!

Rush: Most shots by CC in the entire series!

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: There’s always a place for Tetragene.

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: She’s a man!

Nothere: Theres a story of Bela being out at dinner. One of the guests said he was the Lionel barrymore of the Hungarian stage. Bela correcvted them. I was the Cary Grant of the Hungarian stage.

Mike n Rachel GRRR: It’s Mrs. Bates!

Rush: “Nobody’s perfect…”

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: WOWZA! ZO WHAT?

Mike n Rachel GRRR: No! It’s Norman.

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

EveryLittle Breeze-Louise: Didn’t wiggle “her” hips enough

TreasuryAgents Angel&Foxx: MANY secret identities in this one!

Mike n Rachel GRRR: Plus the dart gun!

Rush: There were a lot of bad people in this one!
