Garrison, How much loot does
March 24, 2004 |
How much loot does Guy Noir get from his clients? The great Jim Rockford got $200 a day and expenses (sometimes) and other private eyes got by on a few bucks, a few shots of the old redeye and some leggy dame. Does Guy get the girl, the bucks or the shaft?
He doesn't get the girl and usually he doesn't get the bucks. Guy is not good at closing a deal and signing a contract. He spends a lot of time fending off clients he doesn't want (lost cats, a search for a missing punchline, etc.) and some time chasing unavailable babes and then, of course, a good deal of time brooding. I am going to have to get him a $200 job just to prove that he can do it.
