: : Afternoon, Bee Holder. To be sure, we don't know if everything's all right or not. We came out here to investigate a possible Indian raid from Simon Girty and his Shawnees, and now Miss Marcia's got herself barricaded up there in the house with Hector, and there's not a living sound coming out of the place. I been trying to look through this thin gap under the front door to see if I could see any sign of movement inside, but it's too dark to see anything through that small a crack, and we don't know if she's fainted or been captured or what. Was just about to have the Boy Scouts break down the door, when you showed up. I must say, I'm at my wits' end with worrying about what's happened to her!

: Shhhhhhhhhhhh, Hector...hic!...let's tippy, tippy toe, ever so quietly over to the front door...lurch!...ooops! steady as she goes!...hic!...consarned gun...lemme get it up to my shoulder, here...now, Hector, stand to the right of the door, there...well, okay, you can LEAN on the wall there at the right of the door, but stay alert, if ye can...I'll get in position right here, and on the count o' three...counting very quietly, of course, I'll throw open the door & blast those deadly Mingoes and what-have-you clean to Kingdom Come, whilst you lunge forward & chaw on any I happen to miss. Got it? Hector? Wake up, there Hector! Now, ready?...hic!...here goes...one.... two.... THREEEEEEEEEEE...
