It's a Saturday night and Rob is in jail. Laura, who was out of town for the weekend at Aunt Martha's, manages to make it to the police station, despite Rob not having called her and not wanting her to know about what he considers the minor situation of being charged with illegal gambling and attempted assault of a police officer with a deadly weapon. The story... Rob was at a loss for what to do without Laura, and everyone he knew seemed not to be available. He read that an old army buddy named Benny Joey, who is now a stand-up comic, was performing in town, so he decided to go see the show. Once at the nightclub, Rob started to reminisce with Benny backstage, where he and some of the other performers, who included Maureen Core whose military themed act uses a small cannon, were partaking in a sometimes not so friendly craps game in which Benny asked Rob to take his place while he did his act.

[talking to himself
I wonder if it's bad talkin' to yourself when you're alone.
A lot better than talkin' to yourself when you're NOT alone.
