"This is the third time that a child has disappeared from one of his public appearances. We have done what we can to hush things up, but this time the parents are threatening legal action."
Frank Berry said, "That's bad news. If word gets out it could mean the end of the franchise."
Reves replied "It's worse than that. We found blood and teeth marks on a child's shoe in his dressing room. I think that was Barney's final mistake."
