Episode 72 – Cruz is panicky
Cruz – All dressed up with no place to go?
Eden – hardly
Cruz – All dressed up with some place to go
Eden – You got it
Cruz – And someone to go with?
Eden – You here on business or uh just hanging out?
Cruz – Actually I’m here to talk to your daddy
Eden – Mm, just hanging out
Cruz – Well I guess if warning him about the possible loss of several major off shore oil rigs is hanging out, then that’s what I’m doing
Eden – guess you don’t do anything that’s not uh urgently important or of world import, do you Cruz?
Cruz – not if can avoid it
Eden - Want something to drink?, or uh, not during business hours
Cruz - I could stand a Bourbon
Eden - You got it. Rocks?
Cruz – Neat, please
Eden - Oh, that’s right, I remember. So, did you pay a lot a money to get that look you have on?
Cruz- Not as much as you did, but then, I’m not as desperate
Eden – Oh… touché
Cruz -Where you going?
Eden - Out
Cruz - Don’t you think you’ve said too much?
Eden - Maybe I have. You know you really ought to clean up your act Cruz
Cruz - Think so?
Eden - Know so
Cruz -What should I do?
Eden – Oh….. get out of double dealing if you want
Cruz - That’s not how you really feel.
Eden - Yes it is
Cruz - I don’t think so, that’s how you think you oughta feel
Eden - You’re wrong
Cruz- Doubt it. You were protesting the whole time we were on the Orient Express together, but deep inside you were really enjoying every minute of it weren’t ya?
Eden - Actually I seem to have a memory lapse about that trip
Cruz - How convenient
Eden - Yes it is
CC – Cruz, I apologize, I was on an overseas phone call.
Cruz - That’s ok Mr. C, your uh lovely daughter has been entertaining me
CC – good. Is there a problem?
Cruz- No real problem yet, I think we need to see to it that we avoid one, I’m asking for an immediate upgrading of the shutoff valves on each of the rigs
CC - You feel we need the latest of everything?
Cruz - I think right now we do. It’ll afford us much better security in case of an emergency
CC - I assume that you’ve had a discussion with your University Professor?
Cruz – yes I have
CC - And did he verify the seismological data that you’ve collected?
Cruz - He said, and I quote, the chances of California experiencing a major earthquake in the next decade, are 1 in 20, but I think in his heart he’s as scared of this new data as I am
CC- Mm, well, upgrading that much equipment is an enormous undertaking, but I think that your concern about the possibility of an earthquake justifies it
Eden – Ah daddy, don’t listen to him, Cruz is panicking
