Strip 619
(Rob and Abby meet by the punch bowl.)
ROB Hello Annie.
ABBY That’s Abby.
ROB So I noticed you and Brain didn’t ask what I was doing for a living. But that’s okay. The truth is I’m not supposed to tell you anyway.
ABBY (skeptical) Really?
ROB But I’m a secret agent working for a secret organization doing secret stuff.
ABBY (curiously) Really?
ROB I’ve been given information that there may be people here from a rival organization that I’m supposed to find and neutralize.
ABBY (scared) Really!
ROB But I want to tell you so you could stick by me once the bullets start flying. I’ll protect you.
ABBY (back to skeptical) Really?
