Not. The Lizbot's decoder chip has malfunctioned. "Galaxy sub with pepperjack," she vacantly repeats to the uncaring audience of Isabel and the Ferret. "Does that mean anything to you?" Isabel is the wrong person to ask: "I don't really listen to Maria when she's talking." Snerk. The Ferret doesn't pay much mind to the DeLuca brand of babbling, either. Liz sighs as the Ferret makes to bolt. Liz reminds him that the diner's open for another four hours. The Ferret reminds her that no power equals no customers equals no need for a short-order cook, and grabs his jacket. Through a mouthful of refried burger, Isabel mumbles the meta-statement, "You're right. This is really bad." Word. My Lord up in Heaven, Is. Honey. And your amazing rack. Word. Isabel stands to follow the Ferret out the door, leaving the Lizbot to sulk alone in the dark.
El Centro de UFOs y Hostages. The Ferret tries the door, which he finds to be locked. Dismissing this as another consequence of the blackout, he mojos the security keypad to gain entry. So clever in the ways of breaking and entering is the Ferret. Down in the exhibition hall, Brodek hears the door open and stomps past Clan DeLuca to confront the intruders. "See?" Maria gloats. "I told you the cavalry was on the way." Amy nods her head and smiles in hopeful agreement while furrowing her brow in cautious disbelief at the same time. Tricky move, that. DeLucawitz needs to stop it with the Jackie Oh! flip thing up there on her head, by the way. Brodek's flattened himself against a wall at the base of the stairs, waiting in ambush. Upon the entrance of Isabel and the Ferret, he darts out to squeeze off three shots in their general direction. He manages only to hit an emergency light and a security camera. The Ferret tries to block the bullets with his own Lime Green Jell-O Shield Of Royal Alien Protection, but the Tridanthial Arterioderosic Gedoniacator blocks his powers as well. Isabel and the Ferret scamper out as Brodek gets off one more round. This final bullet pierces the "Refuge" sign in the entrance hall. The Lizbot, detecting the sounds of gunplay from across the street, creaks out of the Crashdown and over to El Centro de UFOs y Hostages to join the two escapees. Isabel wonders why the Ferret's powers failed him. The Lizbot wonders why she heard gunshots. The Ferret wonders why Maria was present in the exhibition hall. I wonder why I'm already on page eight when the episode still has forty minutes to go. Isabel announces that they must find Porno, and we fade to commercial.
