Backstage, the wide-eyed Marty Murdoch wanders. His lanky frame stands in stark contrast to the athletes that pass him by. His head swivels near and far, taking in all of the sights, marveling at the wrestlers. His eyes bulge to burlesque levels when Harry Chest passes.
Harry Chest: Hello there, random citizen!
Harry is generous enough to give the kid a smile and a nod. Positively starstruck, Marty turns his head to follow Harry as he passes, completely oblivious to the fact that he’s walking blindly toward trouble. He connects–hard–with the chest of a much larger man, sending him down to his butt. He looks up slowly and the camera pans from a stunned Marty to the sneering face of Leon Van Zandt. The camera pans further to reveal Mushigihara. Both stare down at Marty with visible disdain.
The Emperor addresses his newest guest with a frigid hauteur, as Van Zandt simply gives a smoldering stare. Marty stammers a response.
Marty Murdoch: Ah.. g-gee, g-guys! I’m so sorry! I didn’t see you there.
Leon Van Zandt: You did not see us, hmm?
Marty can only muster the courage to nod nervously at the bullies of the Foreign Legion.
Leon Van Zandt: Well… perhaps a broken arm will be an adequate reminder to not just use your eyes, and to be more cautious next time.
Van Zandt flashes a toothy grin, before reaching down to grab Marty by the collar and yank him upwards for his punishment. Marty frantically butt scoots backward until he bumps into the feet of a pair of boots. The camera pans up, following Marty’s eyes, to reveal Harry Chest standing stoically with his hands planted on his hips. He addresses the situation.
Harry Chest: Stand back, you vile villains! Leave this citizen alone!
Leon Van Zandt: …no, I don’t think I will.
Van Zandt forcefully wraps one of his arms around Marty’s, clearly positioning for a chance to snap a bone or two.
Harry Chest: I said halt, evil doer!
As if time moved in slow motion, Harry intervenes and pulls Marty to safety.
Harry Chest: I don’t think you heard me! I said leave this citizen alone! Now, be gone with you and take your little friend too!
The situation couldn’t get more intense as a stare down occurs between all four men before security rush the scene and the broadcast fades to elsewhere.
