Hawkeye, and Stylo arrived at Pete's office.
Hawkeye: You wanted to see us?
Pete: Yes, as a matter of fact, I did. We're going to be interviewed for Television, and I want you to spread the news around.
Stylo: With pleasure.
Hawkeye: What time do they get here?
Pete: Tomorrow, at 9 AM. Now go spread the news.
Hawkeye, and Stylo: *Leaves office*
They started at the train yard.
Wilson: What did you guys get called into Pete's office for?
Hawkeye: We're being interviewed by a television company tomorrow.
Wilson: At what time?
Stylo: 9 AM.
Red Rose: *Comes down from signal tower* Did I hear that we're being interviewed on television?
Hawkeye: You did.
Red Rose: I'd rather see paint dry. That would be great for entertainment.
Hawkeye: What about seeing Gordon try to juggle three balls? That's entertainment.
Stylo: He'd have so many swear words to say, that he wouldn't know what to do with them.
Wilson: Are you even allowed to curse on TV?
Hawkeye: It's the same as being in a movie. No.
Red Rose: What about Gone With The Wind? That had a curse word in it.
Hawkeye: Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.
Stylo: And I don't give a shit.
Hawkeye: Now we have to go tell everypony else.
Upon returning to the station, Percy, and Jeff arrived.
Stylo: Hi you two.
Percy: Hi. What's happening?
Hawkeye: We will be interviewed on TV tomorrow at 9 AM.
Jeff: Sounds exciting.
Gordon: *Driving gas turbine*
Hawkeye: Oh boy, watch out for trouble.
Metal Gloss: Gordon, I don't know why you want me to take control.
Gordon: Because I'm going to jump off here, and get my daily dose of booze.
Metal Gloss: Really?
Gordon: Sayonara. *Jumps off train, lands on platform, and breaks his legs* YEEAHH!! I jumped over the track between my train, and the platform!!
Hawkeye: But you broke your legs.
Gordon: It was worth it!
Hawkeye: Oh, and Pete wants us to tell you that we're being interviewed tomorrow. So don't try anything stupid.
Gordon: I'll do whatever I want, and I'll show him my smartphone from when I went time travelling.
Stylo: Time travelling?
Hawkeye: It's this spell he somehow successfully managed two years ago.
Gordon: And for my next trick. *Uses his magic to fix his legs* Now, I'm going to get my daily dose of booze. *Walks into station*
Twenty minutes later, everypony was informed about the interview. Next morning, the TV crew arrived, and interviewed Hawkeye first.
TV Pony: Hello, my name is Jack Jackson. What's yours?
Hawkeye: Pierce Hawkins, but many ponies prefer to call me by my nickname, Hawkeye.
TV Pony: How old are you?
Hawkeye: I'm Twenty nine years old.
TV Pony: And how long have you worked on the U.P?
Hawkeye: For seven years, since 1947.
TV Pony: What do you think of this railroad?
Hawkeye: After what I experienced, I think it's a great railroad, and will most likely stay alive for at least another hundred years.
TV Pony: Is there anything you dislike about this railroad?
Hawkeye: Nothing really, except for the fact that we're facing the same problem as every other railroad. Cars, and airplanes are taking our passengers, and freight away from us. If this keeps up, several train lines will go out of business.
TV Pony: Is there anything you've adjusted to over the past seven years?
Hawkeye: I think it's the fact that everything here is yellow. The supply trucks are yellow, the terrain is yellow, our locomotives are yellow. Except for the steam engines. The only other thing here that's not yellow are the freight cars we have. Those are brown.
TV Pony: One more question. We've heard that the mafia often attacks your railroad. What do you plan on doing when that happens?
Hawkeye: Nothing, except for fearing them. Fear can be the only thing to do when somepony tries to attack you for no reason.
TV Pony: Thank you for your time Mr. Hawkins.
Hawkeye: No problem. *Leaves*
TV Pony: You have just watched an interview with one of the workers on the Union Pacific. More interviews will be coming up later. I'm Jack Jackson for MGM news.
