Pokey: Sorry to call you on such short notice, but I have a job for you to do, and it needs to be done with the utmost cunning and wit that only you have.
Shadow: What's the pay?
Pokey: Once my empire is complete, it will be as much as twenty billion dollars.
Shadow: Hmmm... what's the job?
Pokey: I need you to spy on a certain red capped boy I believe you know: his name is Ness.
Shadow: I see... the only one who can stand in your way.
Pokey: Yes. I want information about his progress. I heard from a very reliable source, the Ramblin' Evil Mushroom King, that he has learned of my plot and is looking to ruin my beautiful plans.
Shadow: Understood. And hear this: I had better get my money, or I will destroy your plans myself.
Pokey: I got you. Go now, my spy. Report back within two days with this telecomunicator device, frequency Pok99.
Shadow: You can count on me, sir. (Leaves.)
Pokey: (To himself,) He he he. Thank you, Mr. Everdread...
