MONDO EXTRAS

Da Doo Ron Ron Ron, Da Doo Ron Ron

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

Back out on the main floor of The Suck Factory, they have reached the climactic part of "Da Doo Ron Ron" where Shaun Cassidy claps above his head. It's the break, or whatever. It's slightly less hip than, say, watching Ray Stevens perform "Everything Is Beautiful," but Joe is really putting his pelvis into it, although not in a sexual way. At his table, Frank smiles, as if watching Joe wiggle his hips has suddenly made it clear that this is Joe's destiny, and that being involved in detective work is just holding him back. But then Frank becomes distracted by Suzie Wilkens, whom he sees walking through the club and back to her booth. The song ends, and all the people in The Suck Factory clap, because they've been in prison up until today. Just a guess. Smart Guy actually makes an enthused, wiggly thumbs-up sign that he tries to wave toward Joe on stage. Because nothing pleases a rock star like a thumbs-up. There is a lot of talking, and out of the random "rhubarb, rhubarb"-ing, an occasional "That was great!" can be discerned. And then just when the crowd thinks it's safe, the "Da Doo Ron Ron" vamp starts up again, and Joe starts to waggle his hips, and you can just imagine everyone being like, "Um, no." But then it becomes clear that this is not, technically speaking, the "Da Doo Ron Ron" vamp. It's actually a different song, but it sounds exactly the same. At one of the tables, a woman rocks herself back and forth, but not so much in the "swaying with the music" way as in the "muttering about the FBI putting a chip in her head" way. As Joe continues singing and Callie continues tapping on the one and the three, Suzie gets up and slithers out of the club, and Frank follows her.

Over by the exit, Frank takes Suzie's arm through her poncho. "Suzie, Suzie, wait," he says. "What do you want? Who are you?" she asks. "Come on, Suzie! It's Frank! Frank Hardy!" She looks at him dubiously. "You've made a mistake," she says. "Tell me you're not Suzie Wilkens," he says. Uh...she didn't say she didn't know who she was, dork. She doesn't know who you are. "Drop it, I'm not interested, okay?" she says. But Frank doesn't understand about how no means no yet, so he continues to detain her. Despite her not having said yet that she isn't Suzie Wilkens, Frank tells her that she's a twin for this person he used to know -- she looks just like her. Suzie snots back that maybe she doesn't look like this girl, maybe this girl looks just like her. Oooh, she's a feisty one. She leaves. I don't think Frank will be able to resist. Joe is still singing the worst song ever.
