Strip 678

(Brian is pacing in the shadows backstage)

BRIAN        I have to do something or I’m going to lose my girlfriend to that sneaky secret agent.


BRIAN        Unfortunately Agent Keene is a trained martial artist and assassin, with years of experience with death defying missions; I wouldn’t be able to seriously hurt him if I wanted to.


BRIAN        But all I need to do is to knock him down a few pegs.  Just a couple of scratches and bruises will be enough to remind him that Abby’s my girl.  I can do that much.


BRIAN        (looking at the “Little Wonder”) After all, he wouldn’t be much if I didn’t supply his usual gizmos and gadgets, would he?
