It struck me on the way home that our hero Monty works best in my head when he's got someone to banter with, tossing back and forth sarcastic/witty remarks. Molly is the perfect foil for this, as the level-headed straight[1] man girl in the relationship. Same with Cai[2], and more recently, Lavender Tolly[3]

It made me wonder, what would happen if he found himself alone on a job, cut off from his high-tech guru of gadgetry?

It also struck me that *I* work best when I've got someone to banter with.

Which is where you lot come in.[4]

[1] erm...

[3] *waves at boliviafang
[4] *waves at you lot*

this, folks, is why I love Umphrey's McGee

long, long tunes where they're just jammin' away...

That, plus they make *all* their live shows available via The Interwebs for a reasonable price, in FLAC. Picked up a show from their recent tour at Puerto Morelos, Mexico for $12.95 for a 2 hour 20 minute gig.
