Cowboy Cal: But how did you know it would come outta THAT pipe... right at THAT time?! Billy: Simple -- his character represented Unchecked Corporate Greed... Billy: ...so it would perfectly suit the symbolism of this narrative for him to die by the vile refuse of his own industrial hubris! Cowboy Cal: YEE HAH! That's some fancy literary analysis! Cowboy Cal: So how will this episode end, Billy? Billy: Obviously with some mysterious event that will catapult us into the next adventure! Cowboy Cal: Urk! Billy: COWBOY CAL!
