We cut to the inside of a dusty, dirty bar, where gaps in the roof allow for shafts of natural light to shine down into the building, driving home the fact that the bar is full of dust and dirt. There's probably as much silicon floating through the bar as there is to be found in the breasts of the belly dancer who writhes around the tables while vaguely Arabic/Oriental music plays. It's all very "Indiana Jones meets with an old friend and contact who fills him in on the secret Nazi plans minutes before coming to an unfortunate end." The dancer writhes around for about ten minutes, the camera following her torso around (you are watching FOX!), and eventually makes her way over to a table in the corner. There, she slips a piece of paper into a man's hand with all the discretion of Suzy Jackson passing a note to Kelly Wood in third-period English to ask if Tommy McIntyre had asked her to go to the homecoming dance yet.
The woman writhes off, probably to wash all that dust off of her, and the camera focuses on the three folks sitting at the table. They are: the guy who played Johnny on Two Guys and a Girl; the woman who played Sydney's first nemesis on Alias; and Adam Baldwin (whom some of you may recall as Noel Roaawwwrr on The X-Files). Now I must confess, I've had a mad crush on Adam Baldwin for years. So you may ask yourself, "Will this affect Shack's objectivity and judgment in his recaps? Will his normal level of sarcasm be compromised every time Adam swaggers his way into a scene, with his effortless, beefy masculinity and charismatic smile that says, 'I'm a naughty, naughty boy -- and you love it,' while his eyes sparkle with a charm that he tries to pretend doesn't exist? Well? Will it?" Yes. Yes it will. Shut up. Anyway, the three of them are playing Chinese checkers, because everything is old-fashioned. Get it? They're not answering trivia questions on televisions hanging from the ceiling in order to win free Buffalo wings, because that's for fancy folks. They just get the Chinese checkers. Because they're poor and dispossessed.
