(light clacking) ? ? here's a question we should have asked ten minutes ago. what if these cuffs really are un-pickable? claiming a new line of handcuffs to be "un-pickable" of proclaiming revamped laundry detergent "new and improved"-- it's a marketing ploy, and not a very original one at that. i'm just saying, maybe we should have figured out how to unlock them before we put them on. the purpose of this exercise is to simulate field conditions. if we were kidnapped, do you think our captors would allow us a dry run with our restraints? (clack) oh. (clicks tongue) almost had it. unlike hand grenades, handcuffs do not reward nearness. ringtone: ? hello, hello! bonjour, bonjour! ?
