354 - Interrogate

JET: OK, now that we've had a breather, where to begin? The antidote? Hand it over.
NINJA: Really? Just like that?
JET: I'll give you ten cookies for it.
NINJA: Show me the cookies first.
JET: I don't have them with me, they're safe in a---
NINJA: I'm joking. I like cookies but it's not an addition.
JET: Then why did Braxley's cookies make you tell us everything?
NINJA: Tell you everything? Don't you remember? I just used my "answer" as cover to escape!
JET: So you did. But you stabbed yourself with your katana. You need the antidote as much as I do.
NINJA: Already drank some on the chase over here, maybe?
JET: No you didn't, I would have seen that.
NINJA: Like when you saw me change to a new, clean shirt?
JET: Eh, it's probably not a proper antidote anyway. You're a ninja. You don't just go around antidote-ing people.
NINJA: It's marked with an "A." "A" for "Antidote."
JET: Just as easy to be "A" for "Arsenic" or "A" for "Affliction" or "A" for the first in a series of alphabetically labeled bottles.
NINJA: Then why do you want it?
JET: Maybe I'm just toying with you. Or maybe... I switched the vials while we were running.
NINJA: Unlikely. Not that I assume your skills not up to the task, but simply because I doubt you have an identical container of this size and shape, filled with the right color liquid and engraved with an "A."
JET: Maybe I'm just that crazy prepared.
NINJA: Maybe you are.
JET: And how about this: maybe I'm not poisoned. Maybe that was a bluff.
NINJA: You saw what happened to that other pirate right? Foaming green at the mouth, turning a brilliant shade of merlot?
JET: Different weapon. He was hit with thrown stuff, not the katana.
NINJA: I stabbed you with a kunai, not the katana.
JET: Wh-- oh. Right. Well then why am I not purple and foamy?
NINJA: Less of a dose. He took three heavy doses against your one.
JET: But I wasn't the target. McBeard was.
NINJA: Oh? Having a case of the clevers?
JET: He's a big, beefy guy. If the poison hasn't stopped me yet, it would do even less to him.
JET: So why do it? Couldn't be a normal assassination. And if it wasn't a straight up assassination, what was it?
NINJA: You tell me, clever girl. But remember one little thing. I'll tell you this: you are poisoned. And time is ticking past. And, just between you and me, this is probably the most fun I've had in years.

Begin feeling the effects of the Poison.

realize that the assination attempt on McBeard was a ruse to get Jet alone.

then Lt. M Bison to the rescue!

Stab NINJA with STYLIZER (sp?), then hope M. BISON is ready at the BASE OF THE SKYSCRAPER to catch the ANTIDOTE. If M. BISON catches IT, gloat.

Crush NINJA with the WALL OF TEXT

realize that you've spent the last three years building up a resistance to iocane poisoning. Therefore, all arguments are moot.

Also, make note to look into becoming Batman, so that ninjas in future believe that you are, actually, just that crazy prepared.
