8:50 P.M.

From the ballroom, you hear "Stink" by John Lurie, grooving faintly.

Little Red Riding Hood starts a little when she hears the gunshot, then shrugs it off as you and she follow Icy Hot and Bernadette into the pool house.

The pool house is small, but cozy. Inside, there's a small refrigerator, a t.v., some pool equipment, and a few bean bag chairs. You also notice a spear-gun hanging on the wall.

Bernadette plops down in a bean bag chair and starts rooting around in the well-stocked refrigerator, then hands everyone expensive beer imported from Serbia. Icy Hot loads a pot pipe and asks if you want a hit. Amanda pulls out a deck of cards and says, "Okay, let's get this show on the road."

She deals a hand of poker to everyone. You get a four of diamonds, a six of spades, a ten of spades, a ten of diamonds and an ace of spades. Amanda says, "How many cards do you want?"

Just then, you notice somebody is standing in the closet behind the t.v.: it's the Sheik.
