Adrian veep walks down. A Long Greenish corridor. Flanked by armed escort troops at the end of the hallway is a foot thick metal door with a key hat off to one side. One of the troops punches in a six digit access code and the door slides back to reveal another door. This ask with a seven. This is the real door three digit code. It's seven feet thick another door. This one outfitted with a simple doorbell. I'd Iranian ran out of cool ideas. I know where they're going.

Suddenly he stops. A smile crosses his face as he gazes up at the ceiling. All Right John. Okay so I think I don't remember who Dr Manhattan was before. But here's the thing. Oesterreich cannot give guys echoes right. So you'd be you'd be Manhattan you'd be just for this episode or while we're in quarantine however many episodes that his dude. They cancelled April.

He can manipulate matter effortlessly. The physical universe this play thing when it comes to the laws of time and Space Dr Manhattan is a chronic offender. Any government would be glad to have him super symmetrical theory. Say I understand. Old Schwartzman caught a decaying proton in that jomon mineshaft. Laurie who's just reappeared shakes her head and groans. Please you guys know Talk John? You're being rude. Why don't you shrivel down and join us Dr Manhattan shrugs and shrinks down to a somewhat more manageable six-foot-five appear just got to have that extra little bit. This chill still more than he normally was like John. You you've heard at least six a sword shorter and you know if if pendulum was in that room motherfucker would be six seven. Doctrine hadn't shrugs shrinks down to a somewhat more manageable six-foot-five. A pair of black trunks materializes around his waist preserving his modesty. Because if it's not man-sized why bother?

What's the what's the occasion? He tosses a casual glance around the lab. A number of video surveillance cameras are mounted on the walls. We being monitored Doctor Manhattan. Looks you know the government. Lets the human h-bomb do what he wants without watching him at all everything before the first door but not after the bill doctor? Manhattan looks at each of the cameras in turn one by one. The Little Red on light winks out the bearer of bad news. We've lost a colleague. The comedian is dead. Play Ke- dad. Yes I heard this morning. Washington's asked me to attend the funeral as a matter of protocol. Laurie shooting irritated. Look at Dr Manhattan. This is the first she's heard about it rush eggs on the case. He's got dry. Burg and a ladder seems to think that someone is stalking the watchman. Oh The C. T. You suspects Libyan hit squad. What's your theory? Life and death or unquantifiable abstracts. They don't concern me Vp I was raised. That mine is the one button. I can't see. I accidentally turned on Mike. Twos ECHO. Not Helpful at all. Vp that Lori cocks an eyebrow. Same Old John but Lori is considerably less amused. Laurie I could use a drink. Adrian Vit Nods yes Dr Manhattan. Meanwhile has moved off to another part of the lab. He stands before a vast bank of machinery and as we watch a panel detaches itself from the front of the console and floats off to one side. I want to say I'm sorry for being delete on reading This not formatted correctly so a lot of the Times. I don't know when you're talking. And like what's describing something and what style. It is hard to react. I haven't blown up humongous the dialogue is supposed to be censored and for those of you on our youtube feed. You can see exactly what it is. We're reading and how badly formatted it is and also how parts of it are being cut off by our frame. Sorry deal with it too late now. I I set it up using a different script is my test piece. And that was module of circuit boards chips and pin connectors slides out of the whole individual components. Detached themselves in hang in mid Air Doctor. Manhattan hasn't lifted a finger. He's dismantling and reassembling his equipment through sheer force of mind. See Jeff Yeah. But he's supposed to be fucking right now like we're any of this is supposed to be looking at fingers and say it. It tastes like batteries. I don't like any sit. Where's the kink? He was wearing weird underwear. Whatever vitas seen these parlor tricks before he ambles up and resumes the conversation without missing a beat? I guess you'll be dismantling Russian tanks soon. Do you mean Afghanistan. It won't require my attention. What I'm doing here is far more interesting. The module now fully reconstructed slides back into place. The cover panel rises off the floor. Settles over the Hatch and screws itself. Shut well I wanted to bring you the news about Blake but as usual. I can't tell you anything you don't already know. But by John Doctor Manhattan nods just barely via heads for the door finds his coat. Were Laurie put it. He's just about to leave when she arrives with two stiff drinks in hand. Adrian don't leave so soon I I'll take a rain check maury please. There's a note of desperation in her voice veto glances over his shoulder. Doctor Manhattan. Who's forty feet tall again playing with his super accelerator? He's a little farther gone every time. Stay Adrian I just every once in a while. I need to talk to someone him and he doesn't think like we did. He doesn't even feel what we feel. I mean he scares the research team. Sorry my My computer's acting weird while Johns is waiting for that I am. I'm ready right. Shut up Lori is the most powerful man who's ever lived his changed the world. I and who I shouldn't be saying this. He's happy content. He's doing his work. What about you? I suppose I'm serving my purpose Arnav. I'll ring for the guards. She goes to the steel door. Hits a Buzzer veep. Watches her concerned. She coughs violently and he reaches into his vest pocket for a cigarette case. Nasty cough. Try would've mind darling need to get out of the house. Why don't you give Daniela call? I'm sure they'd be glad to hear from you. That's the opposite of what she needs to do right now. Maybe I'll do that. I'm sorry about Blake. He pats on the shoulder. The door slides open and the troops appear to escort. Veep back down the hallway. Laurie takes a long pull on her drinking gazes up at the superhuman lover at her superhuman lover he tinkers with his equipment then satisfied he turns and walks through a solid brick wall. As if it weren't there cut to exterior happy. Harry's establishing night a decrepit waterfront bar and a particularly rough neighborhood popular with the denizens of the underworld accessible by a narrow stairway which dips well below street level interior. Happy Harry's night. The usual crowd living it up hookers line. The bar drug dealers hover at the entrance to the do they have assigned seating. What's bad Tony sits there? Little Little Jeff. He's got to go over there. You know he doesn't like it when you call them little store instead. But instead of like housewares and clothing you have hookers and drug dealers third-floor assorted goons and thugs. Sorta goons and thugs stand clustered. At the pool table watching a topless dancer bump and grind wait a second. Was this movie actually going to be rated R. Nineteen Ninety Superhero movie because that would be fucking bold. I think it's the old Hollywood of two tickets to one ratio. Oh though okay. But what does the ratio how is the ratio affected if the Dick is eight feet long? That's why you'll be seeing a lot more top within on demand size. Dick Amazed I have become a dick. You're already Dick so I lost it topless dancer bumper grind topless dancer good thing.

I didn't like it at all. I think it was the first panel. Was it the first panel? Yeah I don't remember. I sold it to the lady at the Wendy's drafter like it either. It was a solid page of all caps like non formatted. No no blind breaks just stream of consciousness insanity to describe Jr us that one panel of blood flowing into a sewage drain. Guys fucking nuts guys. This is the place that table reads. Take there's just just one paragraph about topless dancers the sort of drug dealers and boy we took it and we took it to the Pete and then we brought it back to not appreciate about that about we have a nice dynamic I think anyway topless dancer bumper grind suddenly. There's a terrible racket and everyone turns over by the entrance. Rohrschack is hard at work ripping payphone off the wall quarterback he he's GonNa be being guy up. He just came in and attacked payphone. I L- I guess I guess a dime but he's hard at work which means he's been doing it for minute sweating he's got he's got like a second rohrschack pattern of sweat in the future will be mobile that starts today once he has it on the floor he gives it a couple of vicious licks with a crowbar then he strides casually over to the bar where the proprietor happy.

Yanks him office feet and slams him into a wall making the jabs in hurry. You keeping secrets. Nikki Nikki sits slumped against the wall. Quaking WITH FEAR. Rohrschack extends a hand. Help HIM UP. He reaches out hesitantly and worship grabs him by the wrist pulling them off balance. He closes a gloved fist around. Nikki's pinkie finger twists it back and snaps. Who killed a no answer forthcoming Nikki? Lets out a horrible Moan. Rohrschack grabs his index finger and repeats process who killed were Blake. Nikki passes out rohrschack releases his grip. Let's Nikki sink to the floor and reaches for his crowbar. He's standing poised to let fly at Nikki's ribs when a voice in the crowd shouts out. Jesus he's in shock. Comedian Group Hilda by now. Harry's pulled a sawed off shotgun from underneath the bar without looking up rohrschack spins and heaves the crowbar it catches Harry in the jaw. Pitching him back into Iraq of glassware the shotgun discharges to harmless blasts into the ceiling silence in the bars. The onlookers await Rohrschack next move.

But I'm liking that we're getting some good rohrschack action here and some good taint action like this is getting pretty good. I think okay but I know I made the sex joke earlier. But what do you think? The advantage was of heaven. Vite have talked about Edward Blake. Had Roy said Russia coming in begging for help? It was just being that. Hey just so you know how this happened amount. Like why would what's the necessity of changing? Was it not Roy? Was it not fight in the comics? So you don't you don't you don't you.
