At first Colin and Evie, whose initials E.V. stand for Emotional Vampire, are rivals but soon become partners. A scene of them on an early date is reminiscent of the scene in Love at First Bite (1979) where George Hamilton and Richard Benjamin each try and subdue each other with hypnosis, only to knock out passing waiters. The Munchausen by Proxy gag is classic twisted comedy. She tells a waiter she projects her sicknesses onto her boyfriend, who then gets them, but no one believes him because she openly admits to the proxy.
The Mole, the Mob, and the Meatball is the third installment in the episodic adventure game series.

Bear Mafia-Free Playland and Casino, but the mole he sent is no longer in contact. Sam & Max need to infiltrate themselves and become members of the Toy Mafia.
At UAOH base, Juri discovers the information on Kenichi, Miura noting he found a fragment of the Super Civilization's ruin. The colonel adds that three years ago, a man sent him fragments that his son had found with ancient writing, which was part of the equation to create Chouriki! Realizing it was special, Miura excavated the area and used it to find the Super Civilization's ruins and to put together the fragments of a slate that helped them devise the means to create Chouriki. Juri states that Kenichi was seven at the time and would not have known about what it was; with Momo adding he wouldn't even remember if he did it three years prior and that attacking him is fruitless. However, Miura states that the nature of human memory is that if you forget something, it can remain in your mind; even trivial information can be recovered through hypnosis. Momo wonders if Baranoia will use science to steal Kenichi's memory of Chouriki as Miura acknowledges they need to protect Kenichi and protect the Chouriki equation, sending the girls into the field. 59ce067264
