Chapter 36: Never Be An Excitable P.I.

"Oh! Oh! You're back? Yay! I'm so excited that you're back!"
Yes, and I have a plan.
"I don't like this, watcher."
I beg your pardon? Did you actually just say you didn't like something? You're excitable. You like EVERYTHING.

"No I don't - OOH! Checkmate! Oh I LOVE this game!"
Right. Ok then. Well you got a promotion, let's at least get you started on-
"OH! I really, really want to do a stakeout!"
Yes. That. Lead the way, oh excitable one.

"Look at me! I'm a bush! I love being a bush! OH WAS THAT A BIRD?!"

"Oh, hey Aunt Reia! See anything suspicious out there?"
Reia laughed, "just some weirdo pretending to be a bush."

"I meant you, Felix."
You can't even... you're not even... oh whatever. Let's go to the library, perhaps?
"Oh! I love the library!"
Thank goodness you're as spacey as you are excitable.

What are you doing?
"Shh, I can't talk right now. I'm blending in. You can't see me right?"

Oh, for the love of -! The watcher sighed, no. Oh no, where did Felix go? He couldn't possibly be the bush RIGHT in the middle of the library!
Felix snickers, "I knew this was the best disguise!"
The watcher facepalms. I'm going to do... something else... ANYTHING else.
"But watcher! I'll forget what I'm doing every time you go away!"
Don't remind me.

So, Reid, your son's gone off the deep end.

"Huh? That's nice dear. Listen to this new song I can play!"

"I've got a case!"
Well, why didn't you say so?! Let's move man! Go! Go! Go!
"Hello sir, who I have no idea who you are, I'm here to talk to you about your case." He looks around, "psst! Cordell! It's me! Felix! Hi! I'm in disguise!"
Cordell looks at him for a long moment, "I was going to ask you for help on figuring out why my watcher kicked me out, but I'm good now. I'm happy in my little hut. Alone. Away from you." He paused. "You're not still creeping on my niece, right?!"

"Oh! I got permission to marry Echo from her father! It was the best day of my life! It feels like only yesterday he agreed..." Felix stared off dreamily.
Yeah, that's because it happened 6 hours ago. Let me spell this one out for you, Felix-

Cordell shrugged, "no, I got it watcher. ECHO. IS. A. TEEN. MATE."
"Echo is a teammate? That's fantastic! I can't wait to tell her!"
Cordell looks at him blankly, "well, I give up."
I wish I could.

"That's one more case to the pile! How many does that put us at?!"

"Woo! Almost there!"
(Thumping sound as the watcher bashes her head into the desk repeatedly).

"Wait! Let me guess! You... are looking for the pieces of your shirt that walked out on the rest of your shirt!"
"Actually I'm looking for my lost wallet."
"Oh! I love-"
Felix frowns and grumbles under his breath. "No one appreciates me like Echo does."

Find anything?
"No. This magnifying glass is really dirty though."
Maybe you should clean it?
"Oh! I'll add that to my list of things to do!"

"Oh! First I've got to call the florist about the wedding... then I have to make a list of all the things I love... Echo, flowers, this pen, Cordell, my dad, my mom, my sister-"
"-the chess table, the rock that's the third one to the left on the sidewalk-"
"But my list!"

Now what?
"I need to ask 3 people about where the wallet could be."
Oh, that's just perfect. There's not a SINGLE soul out and about at this hour of the morning.
"FOUND ONE! Hello there lovely lady - oh hey great grams! I love your ghostly hairdo! Did you do something with your skin? You're awfully glowy."

ARA?! What are you doing here?! I've missed you so much. Please come back. Help me.
"I'm sorry, I can't hear you watcher, I got these new headphones that cancel out whining."

I probably deserve that one.
"Yes you do."
"So, great-grams, have you seen this wallet?"
"Nope. I don't exactly deal in money. Or wallets. Or tangible items in general."
"Ah, shucks."

"Aunt Reia! Hey! Have YOU seen a wallet?"

Felix... I don't know if asking your relatives if they know about some random dude's wallet will yield anything fruitful...
"Actually, I do know a guy..."
I take that back. We're related to everyone in town. Asking your relatives is the ONLY way you'll be able to do this.

"I KNOW you have that wallet! You should give it back! He really liked that wallet, and I know what it feels like to really like things!"
"Yeah, I don't know you well enough. Get lost."

"Watcher! Help!"
Hold on... just one minute! I know I've got something buried in this house... somewhere. Just... stall him!
13 chests overturned later:
"And I really, REALLY love this cool computer my watcher got me! It floats! It's so cool! I should show it to you-"
HERE! Use this!
"Oh! I love potions!"

"I'll tell you anything, just please stop talking to me."

"Case closed!"

"How many is that for us?!"
The watcher sighs sadly. Three.
"WOO! TO THE BAT-MOBILE! Da-na-na-na-na-na-na-na!"

"Now what, watcher?"
Put on your logic tabcasts and play more of your favorite thing: chess.
"Chess isn't my favorite thing, silly!" He paused, "oh chess! My favorite thing!"
Now... don't move. Just... stay... put... there!

Olga love, I have a proposition for you.

"You mean you're going to fill that wish you saved so long ago?"
Consider it done. You'll have to move out though. Can you live with that?
"Leif and Echo?"
Stay here. You're always welcome to visit, but... you know how short life is. Go live yours to the fullest, and know that Echo will be well taken care of, as will Leif.
Olga nodded, "Let's do it."

"What do you mean you don't want to meet up!"
I'm sorry Olga... it's probably just been too long for him. You haven't called him since you've conceived Echo...
"No. I'm not accepting this."

"Hey! Derrick!"
"Olga? What are you doing out here? You haven't called me in like, 5 days!"

In between kissing, "Olga... we're kind of... in... the middle... of... the road."
"Do you want me to stop?"
Derrick was dazed. "What were we talking about?"
"Just kiss me, you idiot."

"Derrick... I've been wanting to do this since the day I met you as a teenager. Let's get married."

"Oh my gosh! This is so exciting! Yes! Let's get married!"
Oh sweet maker, not another excitable Sim!
"We should get married right now!"
"Can we get off the road, first?"
Well, at least he's a sensible excitable Sim.
"Where's your sense of adventure?!"

"Right here with you."
