Now Boarding

Geoffrey was so excited about finding a job that didn't require making change that he didn't ask questions. 'Questions?' his inner voice asked. 'Take the job. Forget the questions.' So Geoffrey did, take the job that is. It would give him a chance to work on his screenplay, "Lisbon". You see, Major Strasser doesn't die when Rick shoots him. He follows Victor and Ilsa to... Never mind. This isn't the right time. Anyway, Geoffrey winds up learning a lot more than how a milkshake machine works, and a lot more than he bargained for. The only question was just how bad a stroke of luck meeting Miles would end up being.


Poor Richard

How was Les supposed to know what these guys were up to? There he was, just a guy earning an honest, well, relatively honest living. Squeaking by, barely, until he met Delilah. But Les's more promising love life raised the burn rate on his modest means to the red line. So when Ira mentioned that a national airline had missed some payments on an airliner, Les wasn't in the mood to ask questions, or even to listen to Ira's vague concerns about the assignment. Les needed the money and the Department of Commerce, or maybe Ira's other, more shadowy, employer, needed Les. That was how capitalism worked, and Les was a capitalist.
