Main Cast


Jarvis: Piper! When are going to finish up setting up your Flyrates booth?
Piper: What do you mean? I'm done!
Bowie: Done?! Where are your cool posters, your flashy light displays, your free Flyrates scene luggage tags?
Piper: I don't need gimmicks to draw crowds. My game is so good it speaks for itself. You'll see! People will be lining up in front of my booth.
[A few minutes later, they see people in line]
Piper: See?
Jarvis: They're lined up for Ghost Goggles.
[The people in line are buying the ghost goggles rattan than the Flyrates game]
Piper: They're still lined up in front of my booth.

Jarvis: That's amazing!
Bowie: That I got so many phone numbers?
Jarvis: That people still use phone books.
Piper: Anyway! These outfits should give people a sample of the games eye popping visuals.
Bowie: Pop off people's eyes, got it! [Attempts to pull out his sword]
Piper: Blinding people isn't good for business.
Bowie: Right! That would just be good for your love life. [Pulls out his Aster insult quote cards and throws one away]
