The "Not so" Great Escape
May 22, 1953
Five days after Gordon got suspended, Orion felt better, but he still wanted to get fired.
Orion: *sitting on train tracks* Where's a train when you need one?
Pete: *Arrives* Orion! Get off there!
Orion: No, I want to die in honor!
Pete: *Pulls Orion off tracks* What's the matter with you? Are you trying to get killed?
Orion: No, I'm trying to get fired.
Orion: You always change up my job, and I'm tired of it.
Pete: Twelve seconds of talking to you, and I can't believe my ears.
Orion: I just want to do my job, but you're always making me do different things before I can even finish.
Pete: I'm sorry. Will you try not to get yourself fired?
Orion: No. *runs away*
Orion went to the trainyard.
Wilson: Hey Orion, what's up?
Orion: Where's Snowflake? Have you seen her?
Wilson: She's in the signal box near the station.
Orion: Oh, right. Thanks. *Goes to signal box*
Stylo: *Driving train towards station*
Snowflake: *Switches track to station*
Orion: *Arrives* My good old, sister.
Snowflake: Hi Orion.
Orion: I really am glad to be your brother.
Snowflake: Well, that means a lot.
Orion: But you know what I wanna do?
Orion: Get fired.
Snowflake: Excuse me?
Orion: I've had it with Pete changing my orders all the time! At first, he wants me to push freight cars down the hump, then he wants me to drive a passenger train to Chicagoat!
Snowflake: So you're saying that you want to get fired, just to prevent yourself from being busy?
Orion: No! I want him to wait until he gives me another job, before he switches it.
Snowflake: Oh. Well, tough shit.
Orion: Oh no it's not. *Switches points*
Stylo's train got derailed. Orion switched the points before the train got off, causing the wheels to come off the tracks.
After Orion derailed the train, Stylo came running into the signalbox.
Snowflake: Great, now he's going to think I caused the accident.
Orion: Why don't we explain the situation to him?
Snowflake: Yeah, you tell him the truth, and I get fired.
Orion: Oh no, I'll get fired for you.
Stylo: *Arrives* Which one of you nincompoops switched the track before I even cleared the line?
Orion: I cannot tell a lie, it is I.
Stylo: Do you realize what could happen to you?
Orion: I want to get fired.
Stylo: *Scratching head* What?
Snowflake: It's a long story.
Stylo: Well we have a long day, let's hear it.
Orion: *runs away*
Stylo: What does he have planned?
Snowflake: I don't know, but I think I may have a plan for us.
Orion's plan was to punch Pete in the face. That would give him a great chance to get fired.
However, Pete was showing the line to some inspectors on Archer Hill.
Pete: As you can see, this hill goes up for a very long time, and it's a very steep grade.
Inspector 1: Well in that case, we would like to see the trainstation now.
Pete: Alright. It's really great that you guys are here. *Sticks out hoof*
Inspectors: *Doing nothing*
Pete: Aren't we forgetting something here?
Inspector 1: What might that be Mr. Reimer?
Pete: You were complimented, and we're working on business here. You have to shake my hoof.
Inspector 1: Uh, that's not really a good idea.
Inspector 2: We've heard that the mafia come around here, and try to steal from the trains.
Pete: Damnit, you shake my hoof, and you do it now!
Inspector 1: *Shakes hoof*
Soon, a bullet whizzed past, hitting the ground.
Inspectors: *Hiding behind locomotive*
Gangster: *Shoots tree*
Pete: *Pulls out gun*
Gangster: *Shoots rail*
Pete: Well we could stay here, and fight. Or we could go back to the station, and eat lunch.
Pete: Yeah, I'm a little hungry myself. *walking to locomotive*
Gangster: *Shoots ground*
Pete: *Climbs into locomotive*
Gangster: *Shoots locomotive*
Pete: *Putting driving gloves on*
Gangster: *Shoots window*
Pete: *Staying calm, and drives locomotive away from gangster*
Meanwhile, at the station
Orion: *Carrying boxes*
Hawkeye: *Walking past*
Orion: Hey Pierce, can you help me with something?
Orion: I want you to come with me, and help me get some of this stuff out of the boxes I'm carrying. On second though, carry one of the boxes for me.
Hawkeye: You know what? As much as I'd like to pretend to be your slave, I can't. I have to go with Metal Gloss. We're going on a date by Sherman Hill.
Orion: Okay, well, see you later.
Hawkeye: You got it.
Metal Gloss: *Arrives* Hey baby.
Hawkeye: You took those words right out of my mouth. You're so beautiful.
Metal Gloss: *Hugs Hawkeye* Less talking, more romance.
Hawkeye: Romance is talking... Or, maybe it depends on what you say.
Metal Gloss: *Laughs* Come on. Let's go.
So they both got in an inspection car, and went down the line.
Orion continued walking towards Sherman Hill, and found a piece of land high enough for what he was going to do.
Orion: *Sets boxes on floor* Time to set this thing up, but first. *Puts on bunny slipers, and dress* Now, I'll really get fired with this.
Speaking of Orion, the inspectors, and Pete were talking about him at the station.
Inspector: Are all your workers good?
Pete: Well, nearly all of them. One of them named Gordon, keeps causing havoc, and I suspend him from work a lot.
Inspector: You oughta fire him.
Pete: I tried that once, but guess what happened.
Inspector: He destroyed something.
Pete: No. A movie company wanted to make a film about what we do around here, but they wouldn't film it without Gordon around, so I had to rehire him.
Inspector: Then, next time he does something wrong, you must fire him.
Pete: With pleasure. Hm, that just reminded me of something. There's a pony here that actually does want to get fired.
Inspector 2: And who might that be sir?
Pete: Orion Stardust.
Inspector: What does he do?
Pete: He works hard, and does his best. However, his assignments keep getting switched, and he wants to get fired on purpose because of this.
Inspector: Where is he now?
Pete: I don't know, probably sitting around somewhere.
Orion: *Finished building hang glider* Time to take flight! *Jumps off hill in hang glider*
He flew above Hawkeye, and Metal Gloss
Hawkeye: *Kissing Metal Gloss*
Metal Gloss: *Kissing Hawkeye*
Hawkeye: *Looks up at sky* Look!
Metal Gloss: *Sees pony on hang glider* Who is that?
Hawkeye: I don't know, but it looks like a big white bird with fuzzy pink feet.
Metal Gloss: Nuh, uh.
Stylo: *Arrives* Pierce, did you see a big white bird, with fuzzy pink feet?
Hawkeye: Yep. I told you so Metal Gloss.
Orion: *Gliding in the sky*
Back at the station
Inspector: Well, thanks for everything Mr. Reimer.
The phone rings
Pete: *Answers phone* Hello, Cheyenne Train Station, Union Pacific. Pete Reimer speaking.
Hawkeye: Pete, it's me Pierce. We just saw Orion flying on a hang glider. It looked like he was wearing a white dress.
Pete: Oh christ. I'll be right there. *Hangs up* I just got a call near Sherman Hill.
Inspector: We better go with you.
Pete: Thanks, I'll need all the help I can get. *Runs out of station*
All three of them got in a truck, and drove down the line towards the hill.
Orion: Alright, I get it, I should've jumped off a bigger mountain.
Hawkeye: You shouldn't have done that at all.
Orion: *Sees truck* Oh look, a truck. *Runs towards truck*
Inspector: *Sees Orion* Good god, you weren't joking about this stallion. He really wants to get fired.
Pete: Orion, don't you know better then to run in front of a truck when it's moving?
Orion: No. May I be fired now?
Pete: Absolutely not, you're going to work in the train yard for the rest of the day.
Orion: *Sighs* Great.
Hawkeye: All's well that ends well.
