It’s great to see Magic McCain get (literally) dragged along. Poor guy doesn’t even get luggage.

*Generic comment about McCain’s sudden appearance and inclusion in the storyline.*

Y’know, I originally thought he was just some randome, one-shot character imitating someone in a movie I had never seen. Now I think he’s cool by himself. Good for him. :3

I thought I saw Sue earlier saying Tess was being sexist by making the guys do all the lifting… makes sense that it would be her and Alec together, but I can’t for the life of me figure out who it is that’s seen there sitting next to Tess…

( 9_9)q hmm…

@Phillip- Did you count Lily? I think it’s Lily… Anyway, there’s someone in the same window with Tess, she makes 10

The person looking out of the same window as Tess looks alot like Lily… so I say it’s her.

McCain,Lucy,Sue,Lily,Tess,Mike,******,Paulo,David and Yashy.I’m no mathematician but I count 10.And the one next to Tess IS Lily,can’t you see the little spiky fur near the edge of the window?

Nice one Sue!Beginning to think she and Alec are a couple since she owns his *** half the time.

I love how McCain always appears out of nowhere when someone does or says something he feels is stupid.And he’s kidnapped by the cat who-I-can’t-remember-her-name.

McCain doesn’t appear out of no where, he is the one, he can move faster than light. Anyway Sue is so smart, she knows saying something stupid will lure McCain in and then she pulls him in.
