MONDO EXTRAS

Da Doo Ron Ron Ron, Da Doo Ron Ron

The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries: “The Mystery Of The Flying Courier”

But because we still have some time to fill, Suzie abruptly tells Frank as they drive toward the Hardy House that she appreciates his "caring and wanting to help." But it won't work. She jumps out of the van. Frank drives after her as she runs down the sidewalk. He's blocked by a tow truck, so he has to jump out and chase her on foot, which is not successful. She's gone. He calls out to no one, "Suzie, wait!" It's kind of like when people holler "Hello? Hello?" at an audible dial tone. I love that.

Elsewhere, Suzie slips into a phone booth.

We next see Tailgunner's phone ringing at The Suck Factory. Suzie tells him that the cops don't have the tapes -- she has them. She can meet him tonight if he has the money. They agree. Just when Suzie thinks she's out, they PULL HER BACK IN!

Suck Factory, that night. It's packed with kids, and Tailgunner is spinning records in his white outfit again. Frank and Joe are sitting at a table, so at least Joe's not singing. Joe asks Frank if he really thinks Suzie will show up there, and Frank says he does. She doesn't have that many options, after all. Suzie's only source of money is Tailgunner, who's the one who stands to lose if the tapes go to Miles. Joe tells Frank to "stick around and catch the show this time," and then he gets up and leaves the table. Nooo! He's going to sing!

Joe walks right up on the stage with his band. The clapping that he's doing during the intro literally bears no resemblance to the beat of the song, so it's good that he stops quickly. "Met her on a Monday and my heart stood still..." God. It's "Da Doo Ron Ron" again. It's hard to believe that anyone could actually make "Da Doo Ron Ron" stupider than it is inherently, but that's the magic of Shaun Cassidy, circa 1977. During the song, Frank looks up, and -- there's Suzie, making her way across the Factory floor. As Joe looks down from the stage disapprovingly (but still singing), Miles suddenly emerges -- not that they would have any reason to recognize Miles or react to his presence -- and gets up like he's going to follow Suzie. Frank notices this as well. As Joe continues singing, he and Frank exchange looks in which Frank indicates that he's going to follow Suzie, and Joe nods gravely, da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron. Frank opens the door of the back office where Tailgunner and Suzie are making the exchange of bad music for cash, as we were all doing at that time. Frank busts in on the meeting, telling Suzie she doesn't have to run away. He tells her his dad told him that if she stays and talks to the police, she'll do fine. Tailgunner starts to get mad, so Frank grabs Suzie, and the two of them run out. Seeing his brother dash across The Suck Factory and running into Miles, Joe continues singing. My brother is in peril, da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron. Frank picks up a prop sandbag and smacks it into Miles, knocking him over and covering him, not incidentally, with sand. My brother is in a fistfight, da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron. Now, Joe finally puts down the fucking guitar and gets in the mix. About time, you big sissy.
