Minute 136: Come Along, Mrs. Thornhill


THIS WEEK’S HOSTS: Josh Neufeld and Dean Haspiel from Scene by Scene with Josh & Dean

Roger is clinging to the rock face with one hand, and hanging onto Eve’s hand with the other hand. He starts losing his grip and calls out to Leonard. 

“Help!” he yells. “Help me!”

Leonard, holding the pumpkin, edges closer. He puts his shoe on top of Roger’s hand and presses down. 

Roger grimaces. Eve watches helplessly. 

Suddenly, a shot rings out. Leonard leans to one side, then falls off the cliff, dropping the pumpkin. The pumpkin smashes open, revealing a roll of film.

Above Teddy Roosevelt’s head, The Professor stands with a Sheriff and his deputies. Vandamm is in custody. 

“Thank you, Sergeant,” says The Professor. 

“That wasn’t very sporting,” remarks Vandamm. “Using real bullets.”

Meanwhile, Roger is on the ledge now, and is urging Eve to hang on.

“Here, reach – now!” says Thornhill.

“I’m trying!” says Eve.

“Come on, I’ve got you!” says Roger. “Up!”

“I can’t make it!” says Eve. 

“Yes, you can!” replies Thornhill. “Come on.”

“Liar!” says Eve. 

“Come along – ” says Roger, “Mrs. Thornhill.”

Roger says this last line from a sleeping berth in a passenger train.
