Part 6Alright, let's go to the pool hall!
Hey, it's Jimmy and Melissa, our old high school friends! Let's see how good old Jimmy is doing!
(Just me or does Mike look like Hitler there?)
Mike: How about a game of pool?
Jimmy: Cut the crap, Dawson. We might have been friends once, but that was a long time ago.
Mike: What happened to you? You were a straight A student, until you dropped out.
Jimmy: I guess I'm just the town's "bad seed." You went off to college and joined the establishment. I stayed here and became a statistic.
Mike: We were friends in high school. Why are you so angry with me now?
Jimmy: Let's just say you and I don't share the same interests anymore.
Jimmy: You've got that right, chump. I'm the local "wise guy," so stay out of my way.
Mike: I hear that your "interests" these days aren't exactly on the up and up.
Jimmy: So what? There's a lot going on in this town that ain't exactly on the up and up.
Mike: Tell me, Jimmy, how come the Sheriff leaves you alone?
Mike: "Maybe I should go."
Jimmy: "Yeah. Get out before I throw you out."
Maybe Melissa is nicer.
Mike: Hey, why the cold shoulder?
Melissa: What makes you think you're worth giving the cold shoulder to?
Mike: Poor Rita. It's a shame what happened to her.
Melissa: Poor Rita? Ha! That little tramp had it coming to her.
Mike: Why all this nasty talk about Rita?
Melissa: Ask around, Dawson. Just ask around. Now leave me alone.
Mike: So, what are you doing in the pool hall? Seeing Jimmy?
Melissa: What are you insinuating? I'm a married woman, I'll have you know! I just came here for a smoke.
Mike: Well, you did used to date Jimmy when you were a cheerleader.
Melissa: That was a long time ago. We're not the same people we were in high school, you know.
Mike: I heard that you married Mayor Fleming. He used to be my dad's partner, you know.
Melissa: Oh, please don't give me that "he's old enough to be my father" routine. I've heard it all.
Melissa: Yeah, well, there's lots of things that are bad for your health.
Mike: Just how well did you know Rita?
Melissa: Not as well as some other people. Now stop bothering me!
Fuck these people! Let's go out the back door!
I sense an item in the trash can...
Alright, a coat hanger... okay, we're done here.
What's left to explore in town:
- The doctor's office, hardware store, etc.
- The carnival
- The sheriff's office, court, and morgue
