How is that?   Jon: In an upcoming book?   SLM/CVS: Yeah.   Jon: In an upcoming book? That’s pretty ambiguous. That’s as ambiguous as the show. In an upcoming book he is going to be appearing. That could be like 4 books down the road!   CVS: Four? Come on.   SLM: Four’s a long time!   CVS:   Jon: Raines is in this.   SLM: No Raines isn’t in here. He is not in here.   Jon: Well don’t tell him that, he is going to go crazy. I thought I read Raines.   SLM: No, we’ve got a better bad guy.

You’re safely in by then.   SLM: Yeah.   CVS: Guaranteed.   Jon: I hope you guys enjoy your meal. You can keep this. I don’t want this. I’m not even in it, so I don’t need it.   SLM: Jonny, Jonny!

I don’t know about tacos today, guys.  I mean, I dunno.   CVS: Is this thing safe? We don’t want you to get lost.   SLM: It smells like someone died in here.   Jon: I’m going home, I’ve got to think about things.   SLM: He was always touchy.
