Since the theater caught on fire, I knew at some point I had to draw Charlie back into the story. Since the end of ACT II where I kind of confirmed, “Yeah, they’re together” – I had to establish that there were some emotions at stake here.

Problem was, I couldn’t figure out a way to make it funny. I was staring at my paper most of Sunday night and couldn’t think of anything.

Then, late at night, I was flipping channels and came upon this scene from Talladgea Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby.

You’re welcome, everybody.

It’s actually kind of odd that Talladega Nights would inspire me in that way. Especially since we learned that Michael Clarke Duncan passed away the other day at the age of 54. I always liked Duncan and I thought he was particularly effective in Talladega Nights. Honestly, he was always best when he was playing against type. I wish he had the opportunity to play more comedic roles. He obviously had a great sense of humor about himself.

At any rate, that’s all I’ve got for now. I hope you enjoyed the comic and I’ll catch up with you guys soon!
