I have rock samples that I can put in my pocket and pencils, but neither of those things make for a good weapon...

Schmelt, maybe you can grab a ladle from the kitchen or something.  Jim, look around for something before we get off the train.  I'll check my things again.  One time when I was working in an office, I took this class on "weapons in the workplace" basically telling me what to guard myself against.  I took it as more of a lesson of what I can use as a weapon in situations like this.  Staplers and Holepunchers work great.  Do you guys have those?  Well, if you don't, I'm sure we can be resourceful.

Yeah.  I think I'll go with Greaseman.
Geez, I had the weirdest dream... whatever team has Hell-anor, watch her, she might be violent. :look:

I'm going with team 1, clearly the important thing here is to get the train back up and running, and that's the only group that seems to be doing anything in that direction. You all go play on the farm or go shopping. :hmpf:

Actually, a rock would be good, but I'm sure you don't want to damage your collection. A frying pan could work, as long as you're not wearing red and white polka dots. We wouldn't want copyright issues.

Sadly I've already picked another team, but if you really want me with you, I could go with you.  I'd be betraying another team, like in the book I'm writing.  It will be a thriller about a bunch of people on a train!  And they'll break down in thsis town, where everyone but the gossiper will be insane!

I'm still trying to think of a good pen name.  I think I'll go with George Orwell.  Nice, orginal, and has a good ring!  So, do you want me with you to go train shopping?  Or can I go with killer Mayor?

Ok, we now have our train crew/passenger team. We'll grab a couple of townspeople, then we're ready.

That might be your best choice of all, the group with the mayor, I'm sure they could use your insight into his insanity. :thumbup:

Where are the townspeople anyhoo?

Apart from that one that won't shut up, are they all standing at the windows, faces pressed against the glass, silently drooling?

I bet they want to sleep in our cozy cabins and think if we will get off the train that they can.  When we get ready for bed, can we come back to our cozy cabins? Please.

Well, to answer your question, they're probaly stowing away.  The mayor scares must of the people, and they try to leave all the time!  It's really kind of annoying.  No class.  If they were to try to get free, they should try to befriend you, right?  Maybe marry one of your female firends?  That would be a legit excuse to leave right?  Mary.  SHe'd be a legit excuse to leave, right?  If I married Mary... which one of you ladies is Mary?  I think I'm supposed to marry you.  Oh boy, I hope it's the one I'm travelling with!

WATCH OUT FOR SNAKES!

Oh, my, I don't know why I said that.  Maybe It's a reference to something.  Ah yes, I think it's a reference to Mystry Science Huckle Finn 3000.  Now who wrote that?  J.K. Rowling?  Do any of you own a Phaonix?  Maybe this train is going to Hogwarts.  Can I go with you?  I promise I'm a wizard!  I once ate a chocalate frog, but than I felt bad and threw him up.  I still have him!

*Holds up sorry looking frog in container, who is bearly alive*

I call him Dumbly.

Nono.. he isn't going with Eleanor.  Hank Howard is going with Schmelt, Jim, Mayor Willy (AKA Mayor Murder), and myself.  Don't get any ideas, Howie.  I am not the woman for you.

Yeah Howie, that one is mine, unless Big Rig turns out ok, or the farmer has a daughter, or ...

Maybe you should go in Eleanor's group.

Yours? YOURS!!? Oh no, I belong to myself.  Do not even go there Mr. Greaseman.  You are already on my list.  How dare you try to claim me as yours and then have a backup plan in case someone else better comes along.  Trust me, that won't happen.  Wait, I don't even want to be a part of this.  CHAUVENIST PIG!

Well, I'm not really sure what to say here. Howard has a history of mental illness and delusions, but I've never seen him so hostile towards anyone before now. We've always been on friendly terms, and it's concerning to see him hurling accusations like this. :sceptic:

I assure you all that I have never killed anyone in my life.

Frankly I wouldn't mind if you started with mentally ill Howard.

So are we getting a move on before dark, or not?

I've heard that wild beasties live in these hills and come out at night looking for prey.... :look:

Caribou tonight, dear passenger.

However I would be willing to take a shot if someone gave me a rifle, put a blindfold over my eyes, and spun me in the direction of Howard.
