"Okay now, this is starting to turn into a joke: three FBI fugitive recovery agents walk into a bar..."

Billy guffawed yet put out his hand in greeting to shake Ian's with much vigor and a bit of whiskey induced tipsy.

"Hey, Coop..."

"Ian! How the hell are you?"

"Hey, Ian!" Don greeted him as well, pulling up a barstool so Ian could join them. "Don't tell me they pulled you in on the Franklin escape too? We had that one done before it hit the five o'clock news!"

"Jeesh," Billy shook his head. "Easiest guy to find ever. Staked out his ex-wife and his ex-girlfriend and won a twenty off Don by picking the winner."

"I was sure he'd go back to knock off the wife who'd testified against him," Don explained.

"And I was sure he'd go for the booty call first," Billy laughed. "Idiot. That old dog didn't learn any new tricks at Prison U." He gestured towards the bartender. "First round's on me."

"Seems to me you're well past first round," Ian teased.

"True," Billy raised a glass to him. "But this is your first round."

"Whiskey, neat," Ian called to the bartender. "Put it on his tab."

"So what brings you here," Don asked, "if not the Franklin case?"

"A much easier one. Fugitive surfaced after ten years? Found him sitting on the curb at his son's house drinking beers, waiting for his kid to get home. Ends up, the son hasn't lived there for ages and the current owner called the cops on him! I just had to show up and put the cuffs on."

"No way!" Billy exclaimed. "That's too easy."

Ian shrugged, accepting his glass from the bartender. "Now there's a case of an old dog with absolutely no tricks at all!"

hahaha. I love it. Just the mental image of those three in the same bar, drinking, and telling stories makes me smile from ear to ear. God, I miss this show. I miss this fandom. Thanks for keeping after it and bringing us gems like this. *happy sigh
