Ah. Good old Cheyenne Wyoming. The town that always starts an episode of Ponies On The Rails, but not for this one. No, this episode starts off in San Diego.
Orion: *Stops freight train at docks*
Dock Worker: Thanks a lot Orion.
Orion: No problem. Now, to head over to that train station, and get a passenger train back to Cheyenne.
Dock Worker: Uh, actually, your boss just called. He said you have to stay here for the night.
Orion: What? B-b-but, I always drive the passenger train from here to Cheyenne. Why doesn't he want me to do that?
Dock Worker: I don't know, call him.
Orion: No, I have a better idea. I am going to do something terrible, and my boss will have to fire me!
Dock Worker: If you don't want to work for him, why don't you just quit?
Orion: I can't do that. It would make things obvious, and Pete would try to kill me. However, if I get fired, he won't kill me.
Dock Worker: Jeez. You railroad workers *Walks away*
Pete: Gordon, I have to go deal with something down in Silver City.
Gordon: Whoa. They have an entire city made of silver?
Pete: No, that's just the name of the city. It's in New Mexico.
Gordon: Oh. So, why are you telling me this?
Pete: You're in charge.
Gordon: Me? This is awesome! I'm going to do the greatest things this railroad ever witnessed.
Pete: Yep. Just do what it says on this paper *Gives Gordon paper*
Gordon: *Reading paper* You got it.
Pete: Don't fuck anything up, or you'll get suspended from work for three months.
Gordon: Okay, I get it. You want me to be responsible for once.
Pete: Okay. I just want to make sure *Leaves office* God, why does Gordon have to be the secondary in command?
After Pete left, Gordon decided to make a phone call.
Gordon: *Waiting for operator to pick up*
Gordon: This is the Cheyenne train station, for the Union Pacific. We'd like a desk for one of our offices.
Operator: Who would you like to speak to?
Gordon: Jesus christ, get me the fucking table company, or whatever the fuck that place is where they sell desks.
Operator: One moment sir. *Connecting call to desk servicing*
Desk seller: Hello, this is desk servicing. How may I help you?
Gordon: Get me a desk made out of oak wood to the Cheyenne train station immediately.
Desk seller: How would you like the desk delivered?
Gordon: By train.
Desk seller: You got it. We'll have the desk loaded onto one of your trains.
Gordon: Thank you. *Hangs up*
Hawkeye: *Arrives* How are things going?
Gordon: None of your business, go away.
Hawkeye: You haven't done one thing that Pete told you to do yet. Haven't you?
Gordon: Nope. Get out.
Hawkeye: Alright, but Pete isn't going to be happy to hear about this. *Leaves office*
Ten minutes later
Orion: *Lands at trainyard*
Percy: Whoa! Orion, where did you come from?
Orion: San Diego.
Percy: How did you get here so fast?
Orion: I flew at high altitudes. Where's Pete?
Percy: He went down to Silver City.
Orion: There's a city made entirely out of silver? Where?
Percy: *Facehoof* Silver City New Mexico.
Orion: Oh. If Pete's not here, who's in charge?
Percy: If I tell you, will you promise not to freak out?
Orion: I bet you it's Hawkeye.
Percy: No, it's Gordon.
Orion: Now I really want to get fired. *Going to office*
Metal Gloss: *Blowing horn on train*
Orion: *Runs onto platform at station*
Metal Gloss: *Stops train*
Orion: Why is there a freight car on your passenger train?
Metal Gloss: Why don't you open the door, and find out?
Orion: *Opens door to freight car* It's a desk. What's this doing here?
Metal Gloss: According to the ponies loading it into the car, they said it was for Gordon.
Orion: Oh no. *Runs to office*
Metal Gloss: Hey! Who's going to help me get this thing out of here?
Orion: *Arrives at office*
Gordon: *On phone* Okay president Eisenhower, anything you say.
Gordon: Yeah, yeah. I'll call you back in forty minutes, and you can send someponies down here, and take them all.
Eisenhower: Good. We could use some more of those.
Gordon: Alrighty then Mr. President. Goodbye *Hangs up* What is it?
Orion: A desk for you has arrived.
Gordon: Ah, good *runs to platform*
Metal Gloss: *Gets desk out of freight car*
Gordon: Get away from that, you don't know what you're doing!
Metal Gloss: *Gets away from table*
Gordon: *Examining table* You're lucky this didn't get damaged!
Metal Gloss: *Runs away*
Gordon: Now Orion, help me get this desk into my office, or you're fired.
Orion: You want to fire me if I don't help with the desk?
Gordon: Yeah, you got a problem with that?
Orion: No, no, I want to be fired.
Gordon: Well tough shit. I won't give you the satisfaction.
After three minutes of arguing, and moving a table
Gordon & Orion: *Gently place desk in office*
Gordon: Thank you for your assistance.
Orion: Yeah, sure *Walks away*
Percy: *Arrives* So this is the desk you ordered.
Gordon: That's right. I bet you don't know what kind of wood this is.
Percy: It's oak.
Gordon: Nope. It's oak.
Percy: *shrugs* Whatever *Leaves office*
Stylo was next to arrive in Cheyenne. He just finished bringing a freight from Chicagoat.
Stylo: *Going towards coupling*
Metal Gloss: Stylo.
Stylo: What is it?
Metal Gloss: It's Gordon. Pete left him in charge, and now he's bossing us around.
Stylo: Alright. Where's Pierce?
Hawkeye: *arrives* Say my name, and I'll appear.
Stylo: Okay. What are we going to do about Gordon?
Hawkeye: Leave it to me. We'll go into his office, and sell the desk. Then, he'll have nothing.
Stylo: If you say so. Let's do it. *Goes to station*
Hawkeye: *Following Stylo*
Inside the office
Gordon: *on phone* So, what do you think of St. Foalis so far?
Coffee Creme: It's good, but I've been here before.
Gordon: You have? When?
Coffee Creme: Remember when me, and Hawkeye had to go pick up a few engines from the Baltimare & Ohio?
Gordon: Oh yeah. Then he tricked me, and got me suspended from work!
Hawkeye: *Arrives with Stylo* Hello hello hello.
Gordon: What do you want?
Hawkeye: We just wanted to take a look around.
Coffee Creme: Who's there?
Gordon: *Checks clock* Uh, Coff, I'll be right back *Hangs up* Listen you two, I have to wait for a very important call from President Eisenhower.
Hawkeye: *Laughing* You're pulling our leg.
Gordon: No I'm not! I'm making a deal with him to get rid of every steam locomotive we have here. You gotta take the call, while I use the bathroom. *Walks to bathroom*
Stylo: Alright. Now what do we do?
Hawkeye: Well, *Takes phone, and sits on desk* Let's get that call for him. Shall we?
Hawkeye: *Calling the president*
Hawkeye: What are you waiting for? Get me the President of the United States!
Operator: One moment sir.
Hawkeye: Gordon is going to go apeshit when he hears his deal goes off.
Stylo: If he made one of course.
Hawkeye: Oh yeah.
Hawkeye: Hello, is this President Dwight D. Eisenhower?
President: Yeah. Who is this?
Hawkeye: Wha- Well don't you recognize my voice you numnut? This is Gordon Suite!
President: Oh yeah.
Hawkeye: Listen, the deal for those steam engines are off, you can find another railroad willing to give them to you-
Gordon: *Arrives* You got him, good! Now get off the desk, and give me my phone *Takes phone* Hello?
President: Yeah? I'm still here.
Gordon: Good. I'm so glad you took the time to call me back.
President: I called you?
Gordon: Yes, you said you would when you made up your mind about the deal.
President: Earlier you said you wouldn't give those steam locomotives to me.
Gordon: I did not.
Stylo: *Leaning on desk*
Gordon: Off the desk!
Stylo: *Gets off desk*
President: Look, Mr. Suite, whatever you're trying to do, it's not working. Goodbye *Hangs up*
Gordon: I can't believe that happened.
Hawkeye: Well it could've gone worse.
Stylo: Like this *Smashes desk*
Gordon: MY DESK!!
Hawkeye: Oh, that was your's? I'm sorry.
Gordon: Pierce! How could you?!
Stylo: What are you blaming him for? I'm the one that broke the desk.
Gordon: Get out, both of you!!
Next day, Pete returned
Percy: Sir, you're back.
Pete: Yep, and I'm proud to be back.
Gordon: Sir, I need your help!
Pete: Oh boy. What is it now?
Gordon: I bought a desk, and Stylo smashed it!
Gordon: So?! It was my desk, and they destroyed it!
Pete: I don't care, as long as they didn't break anything that belongs to me.
Gordon: Like this? *Breaks window*
Pete: Suspension, three months, leave!
Gordon: Aw! *Leaves*
