We begin with Hedley Lamarr looking directly into the camera, asking where he can find such a man? He follows up with, why am I asking you? The sound of a crowd outside gets him to go to the window. As he opens, we see Boris the Hangman saying to Bart, "Welcome to Hanging House!" He then adds, "Not to worry, everyone is equal in my eye." Lamarr gets a sudden bolt of inspiration and nearly chokes on his mint. As we end the episode, Hedley and Bart arrive at the Governor's office. He is no where to be found, but we can hear a woman giggling and him saying, "Not in the ear!" Hedley announces his arrival. Lepetomane asks if it is important to which Lamarr says it is extremely crucial.

Our guests today are the guys responsible for the movies by minutes format, Pete “The Retailer” Bonavita and Alex Robinson, of the Star Wars Minute.
