Cut back to Thief and Black Mage
ThiefDude, I am telling you, it's not going to work.
Black MageHey, let him do it. It's his funeral.
Black Mage(quietly) I hope.
ThiefI can still hear you.
Black Mage!
Thief hides Black Mage's dagger behind his back.
Black MageYou're just lucky that I seem to have misplaced my stabbin' knife...
ThiefThat so?
Red Mage(out of frame) Like Shredder emerging from the ooze, I am..
Black MageMan, the third one was so bad.
Cut to Red Mage who is wearing Garland's armor.
Red MageI'd say this is easily a +4/+4 Armor of Kick Ass.
Black MageMo' like a +Stupid/+Dumb Armor of Idiot.
Black Mage(writing in his small scroll) "+Stupid/+Dumb" heh. I gotta write that one down. classic!
Red Mage and Thief look at Black Mage.
Black MageWHAT!
Red Mage begins toppling over.
Red MageUh-oh...
Thief(to Black Mage) That was far more lame than my "your HP or your GP" line.
Black Mageyou were that thief? I knew you looked familiar!
ThiefLet's let bygones be--amnesia dust in the face! Ha!
Thief throws "Amnesia Dust" in Black Mage's face as Red Mage hits the ground with a THUD!
Black MageWhat is this, talcum powder? It's all over my robes. Thanks.
Meanwhile, on the edge of Criminal City...
Akbar is standing outside his shop, entitled:-

Not talcum

Cut back to the Temple of Fiends.
ThiefI'd be more upset, but I paid with fake money anyway.
Black MageEven so, it's the principle of it.
Almost got it all out...
Red Mage(on the ground, weakly) Armor too heavy...
ThiefDo you hear that?
Black MageNot really.
Red Mage(on the ground, weakly) Rib cage crushed.
