Drink 50: The Usual Suspects

Drink 50: The Usual Suspects

<<First     <Previous

Meeting in a bar is the classic way to begin an adventure. Just don't let it be the entire adventure.

In the real world of the Trenchcoats & Turncoats universe, of course, Casablanca doesn't exist. That's the premise of this entire comic, after all. But most of the other things we know and love (such as Nazi-foiling cynics) do, albeit modified by the lack of Casablanca:

Vision-Impaired Transcript

Rick: I'm never going to give you up.
Ilsa: Oh Rick. Some day you'll understand.
Ilsa: I must go with Wictor to deliver the Lost Orders to Vashington. It's the only way to honour Doctor Fanastacoria's noble sacrifice.
Rick: I'm no good at being noble.
Victor: Give us Orders now, da?
{Rick gives Victor the lost Orders}
Victor: Spasiba! Do svidanya!
Ilsa: Look Rick, it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of borscht in this crazy vorld.
Rick: Huh?
Ilsa: I have to go.
{Ilsa and Victor leave for the plane}
Captain Renault: You weren't fooled by that charade, were you?
Rick: What charade?
Captain Renault: "Victor" and "Ilsa"... American? Uh-huh.
Captain Renault: Obviously Russian spies. Aren't you supposed to be a detective?
Rick: Whoops.
Captain Renault: Oh who cares? Let's go get a drink.
GM: Noooo! I had this vast globe-spanning adventure planned, and you guys hardly even left the bar you met in!
Rick: Pete, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
