Somebody's gotta be responsible.

He's coming.

listed as a missing person.

Along with hundreds of others.

Well have you...

I mean, are the police

looking for him now?

His description was circulated.

Hey Mr Robinson.

It's not a crime you know,

to disappear.

Which is more than you can say for

an improperly registered vehicle.

Do you play cards?

Yes sometimes.

Tonight then, Jim's place.

Good night Mr Robinson.

Oh thankyou. Good night Trevor.

Have you ever seen a

pelican's nest Mr Robinson?

With eggs in the nest?

It's an island.

You've been there.

You took the wrong road.
