Mystery Woman: Game Time

Synopsis: Bright youngest graduate Randy (Stinky) Lawrence convinces Samantha to promote his brilliant murder video game in the bookstore in exchange for his help in convincing 'old friend' Donald Fiske, a celebrated author, to do a signing session there. To Randy's surprise, it works, but Fiske is poisoned after slipping out angry. Randy is Chief Connors's only suspect. Despite obvious repeated lies, Samantha sets out to prove his innocence. Fiske's greedy ex, Jody, pretends to have convinced him to remarry, yet she never even allowed their teenage son Cameron to set foot in Donald's fine home.

[JINGLE FROM COMPUTER]

CAN I HELP YOU:

WITH SOMETHING?

UNH!

AAH!

UHH!

THIS CAN'T BE

THE WHOLE SHIPMENT.

PHILBY, TELL ME THIS

IS NOT THE WHOLE SHIPMENT.

Philby:
OH, WHERE'S

THAT PACKING SLIP?

IT'S ON THE COUNTER.

WE'RE GONNA SELL

ALL THIS AT A BOOK SIGNING?

IF DONALD FISKE IS DOING

THE SIGNING, I AM.

DON'T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS

BEFORE THEY HATCH.

HE'S ALREADY CANCELED 2 TIMES.

3. HE'S KIND OF--

- TEMPERAMENTAL?

- UNRELIABLE.

- DECEITFUL.

- ECCENTRIC.

THE MAN HAS NOT MADE

A PUBLIC APPEARANCE

IN OVER 2 YEARS.

WHICH BOOKS ARE SHOR IN THE ORDER?

HIS SECOND.

MURDER BY ICE CREAM.

I READ THAT ONE.

NOT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST.

IT WAS A BEST-SELLER,

CASSIE.

Cassie:
SO, UM,

HOW EXACTLY DID YOU GE THE ELUSIVE MR. FISKE

TO AGREE TO A SIGNING?

HE COULDN'T RESIST MY CHARM,

MY GRACE.

YOU'VE NEVER MET HIM,

HAVE YOU?

APPARENTLY, MY TELEPHONE

VOICE IS PRETTY ENTICING.

MORE THAN JUS YOUR VOICE.

WHAT?

THAT GUY OVER THERE.

HE'S BEEN LOOKING AT YOU

MORE THAN THAT BOOK

HE'S BEEN PRETENDING

TO READ.

NO, HE HASN'T. REALLY?

YEAH. GO ASK HIM

WHAT HE WANTS.

HAS THAT WORKED FOR YOU?

NO. I'M A D.A.

ONLY GUYS I MEE ARE PUBLIC DEFENDERS

AND ALLEGED FELONS.

SO, WHAT? ALL YOUR DATES

END WITH A PLEA?

SAM, SAM.

I'LL SEE YOU LATER.

HI. UM, SOMEONE WILL

HELP YOU IN A MINUTE.

OH, THANK YOU.

I WAS JUST BROWSING.

FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL?

ARE YOU SAMANTHA KINSEY?

- YEAH.

- RANDY TOLD ME ABOUT YOU.

RANDY?

RANDY LAWRENCE.

HE SAYS YOU'VE KNOWN

EACH OTHER SINCE--

BRADLEY.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

JUST LOOKING OU FOR MY INTEREST.

YOUR INTERESTS HAVE

NOTHING TO DO WITH MY BUSINESS.

BESIDES, WHAT YOU THOUGHT, THIS

WHOLE IDEA WAS STUPID, REMEMBER?

BUT THEN I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT BE

RIGHT ABOUT TEST-MARKETING THE GAME.

STINKY.

STINKY LAWRENCE.

NOBODY'S CALLED ME

THAT SINCE--

YOU'RE STINKY LAWRENCE.

FRESHMAN YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL.

YOUR UNCLE'S BOOKSTORE.

- SAMANTHA.

- RANDY.

WHO ARE YOU?

BRADLEY STILLMAN.

HOURS OF MIND-NUMBING GLEE

WATCHING SOME NONHUMAN

KILL AND MAIM EVERYTHING

IN ITS PATH?

BUT THE SOUND EFFECTS

ARE AWESOME.

NO, THANKS.

HEY, YOU SEE,

NOW THAT'S WHY I CREATED

THE WORLD'S VERY FIRS COMPUTER GAME MYSTERY.

I CALL ITWHODUNNIT.

IT'S GOING TO BE AVAILABLE

EXCLUSIVELY AT MYSTERY WOMAN.

I SELL BOOKS, NOT GAMES.

WHODUNNITIS VERY MUCH

MORE THAN JUST A GAME.

IT'S THE NEXT STEP

IN THE EVOLUTION OF MYSTERY.

YOUR BOOKSTORE IS THE PERFEC LAUNCHING PAD FOR IT.

MOST OF MY CUSTOMERS DON'T HAVE

COMPUTERS, AND EVEN IF THEY DID,

WHY WOULD I WANT TO SELL THEM

SOMETHING THAT KEPT THEM FROM READING?

IT'S BAD FOR BUSINESS.

YOU'RE TOUGH, SAMMY.

I LIKE THAT. TELL YOU WHA I'M GONNA DO.

I'M GOING TO PUT THE GAME ON YOUR

SHELVES ENTIRELY ON CONSIGNMENT,

NO COST TO YOU, WHATSOEVER.

WE'LL SELL IT FOR $24.95 A UNIT.

I'LL CUT YOU IN FOR HALF.

THAT'S $12.50 A UNI FOR DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

$12.50 A UNIT. WOW.

DON'T DECIDE RIGHT NOW.

TAKE IT HOME. PLAY THE GAME.

IF IT'S NOT THE GREATEST MYSTERY

THAT YOU'VE EVER--

THANKS, BUT NO, THANKS.

- SAMMY.

- STINKY.

IT'S GREAT SEEING

VERY NICE MEETING YOU.
