Susan called to see if George had made it to the Tower yet. She requested both Kim and Shego get on the line and say hello to the twins. After promising Susan for the thirty-seventh time that they would call her as soon as they knew anything Shego said goodbye to her mother.
“Ron, would you suggest to Kim that she go home with my dad and help put the girls to bed and take a nap? She's useless around here.”
“KP, Shego said--”
“I heard her Ron. I'll go help with the girls. Will you tell her that if I take a nap it will only be to insure I have a clear head? It seems like some people are not thinking enough about their actions.”
“Uh, Shego? Kim said--”
“I heard her Stoppable.”
“Look, both of you,” Ron announced loudly. “I'm out of the messenger boy game. If you don't want to talk with each other you will not talk to each other directly instead of not talking through me.”
George arrived with the sandwich orders. He was startled to see the Alchemist sitting at the Team Go table. “What is he doing here?” he asked Mego.
Shego spoke up before Mego could answer, “He's here as a special consultant on the Gang of Evil. He's being very nice and we're all on our best behavior. Al the Chemist, meet the Music Man -- a retired hero that everyone in Team Go is very fond of. Music Man, meet Al the Chemist.”
“Uh, pleased to meet you? Are you the roast beef on rye, extra mustard?”
It was a somber meal, with everyone worried about what was happening with Hego.
“Music Man?” George whispered to his daughter when there seemed no chance of the Alchemist hearing him.
“I thought it fit. I didn't want to say you were our father. Hey, I'm practicing on the flute again.”
“That's my girl. Music Man… I think I like it. Maybe I should have a costume made.”
