That was strange. We were doing our jobs last week . . . then suddenly we weren't. All I remember is seeing the editors come our way with metal pipes and two-by-fours in their hands and gleams in their eyes. Next thing I knew, a week had passed.

What happened?

I'm not sure. We were Talkin' about Mixed Marshall Faulk or whatever that trash is you watch. And then I woke up with these electroshock things on my ears.

We have hard heads and empty brains, so I guess no harm was done. Except look around, Buttons, Phil is gone.

I hear Phil just couldn't take Cohen's torture any longer and gave up the fight. I hope he's sitting in Talkin' heaven right now having a weird conversation about Hank and Kendra.

Tonight, I'll have a drink and pour some out for my homey, Phil.

I'm just guessing here, but I think some of the editors are getting a little leery of our work.

You think they're getting leery?

Very leery.

Well, too bad for them. I'll never forgive them for crushing Phil's spirit, but the show must go on. Who can we get to Phil in?

Ashley, you know this is a dangerous assignment. I actually doubt you'll last more than three weeks in this job.

What do you mean I won't last? What, Ford, are you seriously trying to ruin the greatest day of my life?

Uh, don't you have some obligations coming up in a few weeks? I mean, Talkin' is a labor of love, but there's no love in labor.

Oh, yeah. That. I will be on the DL for a bit this summer, but it's only temporary. Like J.C. Romero. I just hope I get good drugs.

Just don't get them from the GNC, Ashley. There's a Talkin' banned list.

About your pregnancy, Ashley: The editors want you to do Talkin' from the delivery room. Shouldn't be any different from doing Talkin' from your couch. Same pain level.
