With Quinn keeping a close eye one the girls Bryan had found the best spot where he would have a good view of the entire room, or at least as much as possible. He noted the light fixture as Mackay pointed it out, but he wasn't about to let his guard down for a minor problem the shows crew could handle themselves.

Quinn nodded to Mackay. He signaled one of the staff over to him, keeping an eye on the stage and the clients as best he could but diverting his attention only briefly to pick out someone that didn't appear to be too busy.

That member of staff was the floor manager, who walked over as a pair of stewards were directing the girls to their starting positions on the mat.

"Can I help you?" he said politely, "We're about to roll cameras".

Quinn nodded, and gestured up to the light fixture that Mackay had pointed out. "Does that light fixture look secure to you?" It was a rhetorical question, but he wanted to give the floor manager a chance to do the right thing first. It gave him more reason to be firm if the decision didn't agree with what Quinn felt needed to be done - a sort of leverage.

The floor manager had a look.

"Thank you", he said. Getting a compliment from a Mackie was such a rare event for a Wallensteiner, he was going to have to get it mentioned in the company magazine.

There were a few suspicious haircuts and fashion choices in the room, but mullets did not pose a security risk. Usually.

Once the light fixture was dealt with, the filming began and the most anarchic game of Twister ever begun. Mackay swore the dice were loaded, as the position combinations got the two girls into situations guaranteed to be unstable... then dumped slime over them. They had three lives and they needed it - because these girls weren't the best coordinated ever.

Suzie won after Lisa caught a spray of slime in her face and fell over for the fourth time. However, both ladies were covered in the stuff and after a couple of pictures of Suzie, who was on Team Vicki, being given a framed certificate, it was time for both ladies to get cleaned up.

Vicki came over to them, with what wasn't a bounce, but had the metaphorical air of that one.

"I hope you had as much fun as we had... now, if you excuse me, I've got to go have buckets of water thrown over me".

Mackay shrugged as she left.

"I'd say this thing was childish and immature... but I used to watch a show just like it when I was a bairn... had a girl just like that who a lot of guys in my unit fancied rotten... took a sniper round in the head at First Goat Ridge and ended up a wheelchair-bound vegetable".

Quinn nodded. "Well I guess we're not the target audience," he said indirectly agreeing with Mackay's comment about the childishness and immaturity of the event. Quinn reckoned guard duty here to be a special kind of hell, one which he intended to avoid if this mission ended in his termination.

Quinn left the comment about the woman Mackay had mentioned. He didn't feel like talking about Vicki or someone like her...not without a few drinks in him at least.

"Alright, let's get this over with," he said following after the girls as they went to go clean up. (OOC: I suspect they're going to a different room to clean up?)

Mackay followed the girls and realised something.

"One of you guys is going to have to watch these girls in the shower", he said with a somewhat unprofessional smile, "Which of you three is going to be the unlucky guy?"

For the first time since taking his place at his post Bryan's concentration broke as he glanced over at Quinn to see his response to Mackay. He was wondering if Quinn would take the assignment for himself. He had already been watching the girls and it was only logical for him to keep the assignment, although some people might wonder about him giving the assignment to himself.

Of course Bryan had spent the most personal time with the girls, although he wasn't sure if Quinn would take that into consideration and if it would help if he did.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/rlongtin/Phoenix%20Roleplaying/Quinn/Quinn3Mini.jpg

Quinn had begun internally processing exactly what Bryan was thinking. Taking it for himself my look odd, giving it to Bryan who has spent more time with the clients could be good or bad, and since Tranter had been around them the least... It was a very tough call. He looked to Bryan and Tranter. "Anyone have a preference?"

He considered drawing straws or flipping a coin if it came down to it. Bryan was a more logical choice to some extent but then who's to say. Then again, they weren't going to take off those outfits just to clean up...were they?

Quinn kept a straight face.

Tranter had been standing outside while the ladies had changed, but showers were more dangerous. They could stay outside the cubicles, but these ladies weren't exactly shy.

"I'll let one of you two guys do it", he said.

Re: Trenton, Whitefall - Trenton 3 vid studio

This was a tricky matter. Bryan was of course gunning for the XO position and was trying to read how Quinn might react to each scenario. Volunteering could be seen as showing initiative, however it also could be perceived as an attempt at something untoward. Turning it down and leaving it to Quinn could be seen as helping the CO save face, but could also be taken as sucking up by giving the superior officer the choice assignment and saying nothing was equally as bad as options A or B and might even cause Quinn to question him.

It all would have been much simpler if he had just responded before Tranter and recommended him. Finally he made a decision, hoping it was the right call, "Well Captain, the girls are more familiar with me so it may make them more comfortable if I were to accompany them."

"Fair enough," Quinn said. It wasn't the sort of thing you could ask for volunteers for given the circumstances. That was as close to volunteering without sounding eager which sat fairly well with Quinn. "You're up then."

Quinn didn't envy Bryan, even though his primal urges did.

OOC: Good one!

IC: A technician directed Bryan to the ladies' shower room and he led the two gloopy girls down the corridor to it. The two of them were merrily chatting away, talking about the enjoyable time that they'd had.

Bryan entered the shower room to make sure that it was clear. Then he saw the cat. A brown and white moggy, it was playing with something brown, red and dead. The remains of a rat were over some of the tiles and a brief wave of nausea came over the Maczarek Security employee.

Re: Trenton, Whitefall - Trenton 3 vid studio

After a few moments of surprise Bryan regained his bearings and attempted to shoo the cat away, flailing his arms in what he hoped would be in menacing fashion, "Shoo, shoo. Get away."

However, getting the cat away was the least of his problems because once it was he had to deal with the remains of the rat. Looking around he began to try and find a towel or something to scoop it up with and wipe up any blood.

Re: Trenton, Whitefall - Trenton 3 vid studio

This cat, whose name was Lew, was not particular happy. It bared its fangs at Bryan, hissing as loud as it could.

At that point Suzie came round the corner to see what was going on. What the briefing files had failed to mention was that she had a phobia of mice combined with a phobia of blood... so when she saw both of them, she swooned faster than a woman in a Charles Dickens novel.

The thought of pulling out his side arm and dealing with the cat crossed Bryan's mind, but before he could make a decision Suzie rounded the corner and his attention quickly turned to keeping her from hitting the floor.

Running over as quickly as he could he attempted to catch her, or at least break her fall as best he could. He didn't want to have to explain to Quinn how she had been injured by a dead rat.
