Ah, I’m Sol... And let me just say, what an honor! Like, WOW, getting to meet you finally is a dream come true! I’m your BIGGEST FAN, uhh... Right, Kale?

Kale

What are you… Oh, right. Yeah, Sol was shitting his pants over meeting you. The smell was awful, and it was pretty embarassing, but you know how nerds are, right? Just can’t help ‘em, they do it all the time. It's like breathing, to them. Shitting their pants.


AIMCOMM

Disgustingly specific as always, Mr. Bauer! My lord, there's a time and place for things like that. The time is never, and the place is nowhere!


Sol

Thanks for the input, man. Anyway, uh! You know, it's not like I'm special or anything. I mean, who DOESN’T know about the great... AIM-Uh-Comm… Person.


AIMCOMM

Excuse me?

Sol

(CRAP CRAP CRAP KALE, you never told me her name! What is it!?)


Kale

(Huh?? Dammit, why didn't you ask me!? It's-)


AIMCOMM

AIM-Uh-comm… AIMCOMM… That’s what you said, right?


Sol

Oh! Hahaha, yeah, AIMCOMM! See, I know it SOUNDS like I was just stumbling over my words there, but ACTUALLY that’s… What everybody back home calls you! You’re MEGA famous. What, you didn’t know?


AIMCOMM

AIMCOMM… Me, a hero to the masses… Haha, oh, I love it! Yes, the people need a torch! A mighty flame to burn away the evils of the world! A beacon of HOPE! AIMCOMM, ohhh… Hahahahahaah, oh this puts a smile on my face, my boy, yes...

Sol

Well. Evil laugh aside, I’m glad you’re so excited about that! Hey, that reminds me actually, I had a really important favor to-

AIMCOMM

Mr. Bauer! Kale, listen up. From now on I don’t want any more of this ‘Ms. Commandante’ nonsense, you call me by my full title! Got it? Ohohoho, I should make an announcement about this! Just think, all those grunts out there crowing to their AIMCOMM! That’s rich, HA!

Kale

*Sigh*... Yes ma'am.

AIMCOMM

Uh-uh, not quite, Kale. would you like to try again?

Kale

...

Sol

Umm... Hey, I hate to change topics like this, but... I have a really important question for you, Ms. AIMCOMM!

AIMCOMM

A question, eh?

Sol

Yeah! Admittedly, I was originally going to try and butter you up before I asked, but... Y'know, you seem pretty 'reasonable' and 'rational' so... Let's just get this over with!

AIMCOMM

...Sarcasm? Did you just speak to me sarcastically, sir?

Sol

Huh? No. Nope, *never*.

AIMCOMM

...Fine. Continue.
