THIS WEEK’S HOSTS: Curtis Bloes and Jason Hummel from the Better Off Dead Minute

Roger watches as Leonard and Vandamm discuss Eve.

“You know what I think?” laughs Vandamm. “I think you’re jealous! No, I mean it, and I’m very touched!”

Leonard pulls out his pistol.

Vandamm looks at him, shocked. “Leonard?” he says.

Leonard fires. Vandamm flinches, but is not wounded. Vandamm is puzzled.

“The gun she shot Kaplan with,” says Leonard. “I found it in her luggage. It’s an old Gestapo trick: shoot one of your own people to show that you’re not one of them. They’ve just freshened it up a bit with blank cartridges.”

Vandamm changes from shock to anger. He punches Leonard in the face. 

Leonard falls back on the sofa. 

Vandamm rubs his sore hand as he contemplates Eve’s treachery. 

Eve opens her bedroom down and calls downstairs. “What was that noise?” she asks. 

“Yes,” says Vandamm, recovering his smile. “We wondered what it was too, didn’t we, Leonard?” He turns back to Eve. “Hurry on down, darling. It’s almost time to leave.”

“In a moment,” says Eve.
