Pat MacDonald sings a song about the Wise Guy and Lucky on a blind double date with two sister named Destiny and Fate. I haven't met Destiny yet.

"He's been down there awhile."

"I know."

"Aren't you going to pull him out."


"I feel like I should do something."

"Is he hurt?


"Is he in any danger?"


"Then there is nothing you can do. Your job is to keep him from stubbing his toes and so far his toes are unstubbed, so he stays."

"It can't be good for him down there."

"He can get out any time he wants."

"You've always gotten him out before."

"And this time, I'm not. If he doesn't like it then he can started getting himself out."

"I can hear you down here."

"When are you going to start getting yourself out of that hole, so we can get on with this?"

"I'm waiting until you pull me out."

"I'm not pulling you out."

"I think you will. I just need to wait for someone to need something that I can't do from down here and you'll pull me out."

"The funny thing about that is: we all talk to each other. I spoke to all the other agents of Fate and nobody is going to ask you for anything."

"So, everybody's world is all hunky-dory?"

"You're a little full of yourself are you? I didn't say everybody's world would be hunky-dory. I said they aren't going to ask you for anything. If you want to help others, you first have to help yourself."

"I thought preaching was that other guy's job. And speaking of that other guy: why don't you get me out of here? I thought you were supposed to prevent stuff like this from happening?"

"I can guide and protect. I can suggest that you don't go down into a hole but if you choose to do so then there is not much that I can do about it."

"So, you're not much good for me now, are you?."

"I cannot guide, if you are not moving."

"Fuck the both of you."

"I think you hurt his feelings."

"What? Did he raise his feathered eyebrows and drop his cherub jaw?"

"Yeah, pretty much. Now, what if I said, "Fuck, you too," and meant it?"

"I don't think you would ever say that; not to me."

"I can. You shouldn't take me for granted. I'm not as set as Destiny."

"But you won't; not today anyway and I don't take you for granted and I know that you know that or else or would have made things hard for me. I trust you, and I know that you like me; I don't take you for granted."

"It would really moisten my panties, if you would just start getting out of that hole."

"You're too much. What was his reaction?"

"He dropped his cherub jaw again."

"Don't worry, she's just trying to get a rise out of you. She's just joking; she doesn't actually wear panties."

"How do you know I don't wear panties?"

"When I'm following you and Destiny around, I'm not just looking at the scenery."

"Does Destiny wear panties?"

"All the damn time."

"Will you please just get out of the damn hole?"

"Sure. I'll start trying anyway."
