Get out of my neighbourhood.

Hello, I need to speak

to the police, please.

Shipping. Griff speaking.



There you go.

How's lunch? Oh, sorry. Sorry.

What did you have?

A sandwich.

What was in the sandwich?

Cheese. Egg.


Aw. Love mayonnaise.

Was it whole-egg?

Um, yeah. I think so. I don't know.

It's for Gary. Tax time!

He wants them sorted into

categories, dates and then added up.

I know. Sorry!

The short straw.


Hey, hey, hey, hey.


Don't fight it, Griff.

Just wanna...

S-Stop it!

"Just stop it!" Hm-hm!


How'd you go?

All done.

Great. Just...

They weren't really

for Gary, were they?

Uh, no.


Stay out of my neighbourhood.

It's OK. You're safe.

Go away. I got Mace!

"It's OK. You're safe. "

"You're safe now. "

"Never fear. "

"Griff, the Protector, is here. "

Griff the...



Who is it?

It's Tim, Griff.

For a minute,

I thought it was you.

It better not be, Griff.

Because I moved back here for you

and you promised me

that you'd stopped.

It's not. I promise.

It better not be.

It's not.

Better not be.

How's work, anyway?

It's... really good.

Good. It's good you have that job.


Keeps you out of trouble.

It does.

Good. Well.

Oh, um, you know how before

I said I was in the neighbourhood?

Well, the reason is because

I was on a date.

Her name is Melody.

Melody. Like music.

Yes, it is like... It's like music.

Anyway, I think she could be it.

Melly? Are you back already?


Did you bump your head again?



So! How was the date?

He is adorable!

Yeah, he's lovely.

Oh, he's very right for you, Mel!

Well done!

Tim and Melody. Mel and...

OK, Mum, look, we've been

on one date, OK?

Just figuring out if I like him.


Have there been

any, um... you know...


Goodnight, Mum.

Goodnight, darling.

Sorry, Tim.

I made a promise... rid this city of evil... the name of justice.

It's not a choice.

It's a responsibility.

No problem, sir.

Call again if it hasn't turned up.


...twice your age.

Oh, like you can talk.

So, Tammy's out of town tonight.

Do you want to come over?

I don't know, Tony.

How are you, Cecilia?

Settling in OK?

Everything's great.

I really love it.

Don't enjoy it too much. It's still work!

Ahem. Shipping. Griff speaking.

It's Tony.

Oh. Hi, Tony.

Just wondering what

you're doing for lunch.


I'm going to this little

Chinese restaurant

and they do great pork balls.

I know that you love balls.

No. Thanks.

Hey! Here it is.

I really... really like you.

A lot.

And I love balls too.

We're two ball lovers.

State championships.

I got three perfect 10s.

But even then,

Heather 'Twinkletoes' won.

Well, you look like a champ to me.

We met at a Chinese restaurant.

I was paying for the bill

for my table and it was $19.

And we'd all had a banquet!

$19?! What?!

Oh, dear.

And I said to myself, "Mmm,

that's pretty good value!"


Aw! It's not so bad.

I'm OK.


Oh, anyway, uh...

And she was looking

at HER bill. And...

How much was it, Mel?



Why were you

eating alone, Melly?

She does funny things!

Oh, she's fine though. Ha ha!

Yes, sir. There definitely seems to

be more activity in recent weeks.

The press

are calling it a crime wave.

What do you think?

Crime wave? I'm not sure, sir.

...running out of men.

Uh, yes, Commissioner.

Promise me you will help.

Yes, sir, I will.

Thank you, sir.

Who is it?

It's Tim, Griff. Who else?

No, no! No!

Griff. This is, uh, Melody.
