JAY: We've got some reports coming in that suggest that the game is afoot. From Insurlik, Turkey, it seems two James Bonds had an altercation at Akmed's Leather Goods/Brothel/Bar/Bowling Alley. One Bond passed out,
apparently drugged, and awoke with a St. Chrisopher Medallion in his hand. Pat, it appears as if the Saint has gotten in the first jab!
PAT: It gets worse for Bond, Jay. This in from Georgia, the former Soviet State, not the Peach State, 5 Kurdistani rebels and four Russian diplomats were found dead with an empty attache case and a halo stickpin and a
Mercedes Benz. Sources confirm that the rebels attacked the diplomats and fled with the contents of the attache case... One envelope.
JAY: Pat, it looks as if the Saint is one step ahead of Bond at every turn!
PAT: As hard to believe as that may seem, it appears to be the case.
JAY: The crowd, mostly women, appear to be pro-Bond, with signs saying "Marry Me, James!" or assorted variations on that theme.
PAT: Jay, I've got a breaking story that may be related to our contest. A Soviet built AN-124 Condor is wildly off course and may be heading to our location!
JAY: That's right, Pat! And, the pilot and co-pilot were found dead in the Russian countryside.... Apparently, they were shot! The aircraft, one of the world's largest, is being piloted by a General Krechenko. The original
flight plan had it going to Georgia!
PAT: Now, that's a coincidence!
JAY: Pat, if I were a betting man, I'd say that the Saint was involved in this, somehow!
PAT: You've always been the smart one, Jay.
JAY: There's definitely no sign of either Bond or Templar, here in Hurlbertistan!
PAT: Jay, I see the Condor making it's final approach! From the angle of it's landing, this baby appears to be loaded down!
JAY: If it is what we think it is, Pat, it would have to be!
PAT: It's touching down! Whoa! Look at those tires smoke! I hope the Saint or Bond show up, soon! The fate of the world is in their hands!
JAY: As the plane comes to a halt, at least a dozen vehicles are driving toward it at high speed! Pat, isn't that...
PAT: Yes, it is, Jay. It's Colonel Kabol standing in the lead Jeep. Must be a power thing. He's a a known champion of western causes in this part of the world... Could it be he's turned against us?
JAY: The crowd is buzzing with excitement as the doors to the large aircraft open. Kabol's troops surround the aircraft, weapons ready to fire on command.
PAT: I see a figure emerging! Good God, it's Simon Templar! He's done it! He's delivered the goods! He's walking over to Col. Kabol.
JAY: The Colonel Kabol is reaching for something behind his back... no, he just pulled off his face!
PAT: I don't believe, it's James Bond! He's just completed the Gemina Maneuver! Apparently, he led Templar on a string every step of the way!
JAY: Simon Templar, master of disguise, was just beat at his own game.
PAT: The Saint simply bows... Yielding to the master!
