When the wombat comes, he'll find me gone.

Dan Coulter has lost his girlfriend, and cannot find anything to look forward to in life any further.  He's considering putting an end to it once and for all.  At that moment, with gun in hand, he sees a rather unusual want ad.  The only caveat?  Whoever responds to this ad must be able to bring their own weapons.  Well, at least Dan can fill that part of the ad, right?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about Neanderthal accents, the BBC series "Doctor Who," as well as waxing poetic about time travel once again.

Special thanks to Marshal Latham for producing today's story, and Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to today's episode.

The previously kind, docile, and sane people of town have turned violent and bloodthirsty.  They're killing off anyone in town who is normally willing to do violence, from murderers to police officers.  How can Sgt. Davies save herself and her family?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about feedback, especially comments, about this episode and old ones.  A second incentive episode is announced.  Also, Rish tries to coin the term "as thick as nails."  And "renumeration."  This is not his night.

Special thanks to Tanja Milojevic for producing today's story, and Peter Katt, Andriana Marchio, Richard Garner, Jack Kincaid, Moses Bisel, Tobias Queen, Sale Marchio, and Tanja Milojevic for lending their voices to today's episode.
