In his book, a Social Contract is what you negotiate with a hooker  


"Rebecca, when my 10:30 shows up, just point him to - "

I heard the snicker before I saw the poster. I crossed myself. Twice. Behind the receptionist, high on the wall for every client to see...

"ALAN!"

There were... implications there.

Re: ooc
Not funny, Ynez.
Ynez Castillo: you make me laughynez_castillo on March 18th, 2006 02:40 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry. But it made me laugh.
Brad Chase: lavender tiebrad_chase on March 18th, 2006 02:51 pm (UTC)
Well... okay. I guess. There are times when situational ethics can be amusing. Juxtaposition of intent and social commentary, but - just tell me you're not laughing in an Alan Shore way.
Ynez Castillo: you make me laughynez_castillo on March 18th, 2006 02:57 pm (UTC)
I can promise you I'm not laughing in an Alan Shore way.
Brad Chase: lavender tiebrad_chase on March 18th, 2006 03:50 pm (UTC)
This, you understand, places you firmly in the minority.

Appreciated.
Ynez Castillo: you make me laughynez_castillo on March 18th, 2006 04:04 pm (UTC)
Surely only Alan laughs at you in an Alan Shore way?
Brad Chase: lavender tiebrad_chase on March 18th, 2006 04:30 pm (UTC)
Nope. The CDC is thinking of classifying it as a contagious pathogen.
Ynez Castillo: you make me laughynez_castillo on March 18th, 2006 04:32 pm (UTC)
That's rather disturbing. I hope I didn't catch it from him.
Brad Chase: lavender tiebrad_chase on March 18th, 2006 04:55 pm (UTC)
It's not life-threatening - unless you exhibit symptoms in, well, certain bars. I don't think it can yet jump species. For now, proximity causes behavioral change. I can tolerate it because of my strict military ethic.
Ynez Castillo: you make me laughynez_castillo on March 18th, 2006 04:56 pm (UTC)
You're funny. Did you know that?
Alan Shore: matters of grave importancealan_shore on March 18th, 2006 09:37 am (UTC)
"Yes? Was that my name I heard resounding through the corridors?"

Alan paused both speech and movement to admire the poster. Then he turned to Brad. "I opted for blue lettering because it brings out your eyes, but I can change it to red if you'd prefer to"--another admiring glance at the poster--"bring out the axe."
Brad Chase: How'dya know?brad_chase on March 18th, 2006 02:27 pm (UTC)
I'm curious, Alan, how things'll go over during your exit interview with Paul. And what's with this thing you have with posters. Granted, Chase for D.A. - not bad. I suppose next - what? - we're gonna see whatever you've got in that art portfolio you were caressing last week?
Alan Shore: slut for authorityalan_shore on March 19th, 2006 06:48 am (UTC)
I'm afraid not. While the contents of that portfolio would no doubt be extremely motivational, they're mine alone to caress.

I would also have some difficulty devising a caption, since the contents in question have a tendency to deprive me of words.
Brad Chase: Following his leadbrad_chase on March 19th, 2006 08:22 am (UTC)
Oh, good grief. Pictures of Denny.
Alan Shorealan_shore on March 19th, 2006 08:33 am (UTC)
What use would I have for pictures of Denny? I can view him at my pleasure.
Brad Chase: Following his leadbrad_chase on March 19th, 2006 09:50 am (UTC)
*Brad suppresses his cringe, but notices their receptionist lean forward intently; under his breath* There's an audience for everything.

For God's sake, Alan. Don't ask, don't TELL.
Alan Shore: spooningalan_shore on March 19th, 2006 09:58 am (UTC)
*amused* I was under the impression you were asking. My mistake.
Brad Chase: We hold these truthsbrad_chase on March 19th, 2006 10:54 am (UTC)
Yeah. Well. You pick now to actually answer.

While we're on a roll, your message here - *gestures to poster* - implies popular sovereignty gave me the thumbs up. *here Brad straightens up, grinning broadly* Ends justify means. People first.

*Walking by and the poster catches her eye. She stops to look at it*

Nice poster. What's going on here?

Brad Chase: negligencebrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 01:36 pm (UTC)
Nice poster? You can say that now, Miss Here-take-this-axe-and-threaten-to-chop-down-the-door.
denise_bauer: That's funnydenise_bauer on March 20th, 2006 02:59 pm (UTC)
I like the blue in the title...brings out your eyes. *smirks*
Brad Chase: suit listensbrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 04:03 pm (UTC)
Somehow that sounds better coming from you than Alan.
denise_bauer: Confidentdenise_bauer on March 20th, 2006 04:40 pm (UTC)
*Smiles broadly* I would hope so. By the way...Mannix, what's on your plate today? I might need a favor.
Brad Chase: consider it carefullybrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 05:04 pm (UTC)
Give it a rest. Depends. Will it involve felonies?
denise_bauer: That's funnydenise_bauer on March 20th, 2006 05:55 pm (UTC)
It might. It depends on your taste.
Brad Chase: consider it carefullybrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 06:15 pm (UTC)
I prefer my favors to be prudent. Lives aren't at stake, are they?
denise_bauer: Pensivedenise_bauer on March 20th, 2006 07:07 pm (UTC)
No, but a life could be made difficult. *Brad is not reacting*

*Grabbing his arm, she leads him into the break room--no one is there. Looks at Brad with an embarrased expression on her face*

I need a date for a friend's wedding next month. Wanna go with me?


Brad Chasebrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 07:38 pm (UTC)
You're afraid of weddings, aren't you.
denise_bauer: Faceoffdenise_bauer on March 20th, 2006 08:26 pm (UTC)
I'm afraid of friends trying to fix me up with a date. Oh...I know they mean well, but it never seems to work out. This way, I'll already have a date, one that I actually know, so they need not bother.
Brad Chasebrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 08:32 pm (UTC)
*thinking he should have taken the tact that he's afraid of weddings*

You think you know me?
denise_bauer: Confidentdenise_bauer on March 20th, 2006 08:38 pm (UTC)
We are not exactly strangers, and from what I can tell, you do like women. Right?
Brad Chase: Chase mebrad_chase on March 20th, 2006 11:05 pm (UTC)
*indignetly* Denise!

*she raised an eyebrow* Of course.

*for all the wrong reasons - and instantly regrettable* FINE. I'll go. *pause* Stop looking at me like that!
