*Curly returns to her room after looking around for Quote. She decides to lay down on a nearby chair.*
Hmm… Wonder where Quote is, I haven’t seen him since last night…
Quote!! Where have you been?! I was starting to get worried!!
So, are you ready to go see the others by the studio for the nightwatch?
Quooote!! Stop giving me that look!
… Quote you feeling okay? You look a little sad. I heard something happened at the restaurant… did it have something to do with that?
… [You are debating to yourself whether or not to tell her about that episode… or about your emotions.]
Or are you still depressed about losing so early on? Oh, c’mon Quote, winning isn’t everything!! Besides, we’ve met so many cool new friends here on this little adventure!! Like that cool skeleton, that big ol crustacean, and uhh, what was his name again? M&M?
I think you get my point! So, stop acting so blue about all of that!!
So, let’s get going!!
Huh, who could be playing music at this hour?
… [You feel you should investigate with her.]
Hey!! What are you doing playing music at this time of night? You might wake everyone up!!
Oh? Quote, you know this weird guy?
Hey, I’m no ordinary weird guy! I’m the weird guy, Alfred Yankovic! Feel free to call me Al for short.
Anyways, you better believe I know that little guy there. He was with Marshall and that crab guy a few nights ago sneaking around my room! I’m still not so sure what you guys were planning to do with my p-
Sorry, Mister, but we don’t really have a whole ton of time to chat!! We need to be going to the little thing we’ve been planning on for a while now with a couple of friends.
Oh, it’s just something I thought of for the Round 1 losers’ support group! Quote and I have been doing it for a while now, we usually go out by the bench near that strange looking tree outside the studio and watch the night sky!
Oh, it’s nothing bad! It’s just something we’ve been doing that I think helped Quote cope with his losses, and hopefully others too!!
Ah, yeah, I guess that makes sense. Now that you mention it, I remember it took me awhile to get over my loss in last year’s tournament.
It is certainly rough for some people…
For sure, but you know I’ve kinda learned something about this tournament. It isn’t about the prize at the end. It’s about meeting all the wacky faces here, both old and new! Like my buddy, Geno, he’s been a great friend to me during this whole thing!
Oh, the puppet? Yeah, he’s very nice! He reminds me a lot of Quote here!!
Oh!! Sorry, Al, but we really got to get going!
Hey, wait! Before you go, would it be alright if I join in on that nightwatch thing you’re doing? I kinda feel like I could use some fresh air tonight.
Why most certainly, Al.
I’ve been fine, just on my way to that nightwatch you three were talking about. I personally think we’d all enjoy your presence, Yankovic!
Yeah! We got to make sure we aren’t late!!
Ah, seems everyone is here now!
What took y’all so long…
Sorry!! Me and Quote kinda got sidetracked with that guy over there…
Aren’t you that weirdo from last year’s tournament?
In the flesh! Say, I remember you three almost won last year. I’ve gotta say, getting that close was impressive!
Thank you Al!
Well, shall we begin?
Yeah, whatever, just make this quick. I got some stuff to do tonight.
YEEEEOOOOO! You know it!
Aight, let’s do this. Sorry again about Howard not joining us.
Yeah, same with Popoy.
Oh, it’s fine, I bet they’ll show up at some point. Anyways, let’s- Wait a second, where’s Paruko?
Huh?! Quote is missing too!!
O-oh, sorry, u-uhh yeah let’s move out.
… The stars sure are pretty tonight!!
… [You feel content.]
