After Dress Rehearsal
Next day, Showtime!
At Le Blues Bar

Beer and hard liquor were poured. All six Immortals were present, basking in their achievement. Amanda, Joe and BG were there to shower them with praises. The crowd left the warehouse floating and excited for tomorrow's Show Time, the day before the Gathering, the day all six will do the Full Monty.

Connor
Together we achieved the extraordinary!

Duncan
Oh I dunno if it was extraordinary but it was something!

Fitz
Here here!

BG
It was lovely! Just lovely!
(holds out her arms to Methos)
Come here you big log you!

Methos grinned and walked right into BG's open arms for an embrace

Fitz
Big log?

Duncan
How sweet.

Kronos
How sweet indeed.
(grimaces)
By the way, what were you and Richie muttering about when we were performing?

Duncan
I'm sorry, did we break your concentration?

Richie
Geez, Mac, was it him? Was it Consone?

Joe
Consone? The Immortal dance instructor? But didn't you get rid of him, Mac?

Duncan
(laughs)
Yeah, dance instructor. And one hell of a swordsman. He's dead, Joe. That particular quickening is hard to forget. It couldn't have been him.

Richie
Then who could it be?

Amanda
Forget about it! I say you all go home and rest. Tomorrow's the big day!

Methos
Not exactly.

Seven Immortals looked at each other with worried eyes. BG rested her head on Methos' shoulders and he in turn kissed her forehead. Just then, the door to the bar opened and a man wearing a cowboy hat, red polo shirt over tight jeans, with a bull whip hanging on the side, cowboy boots complete with spurs, came in.

Joe
Holy ... (stops himself)
A Redneck Consone?

Anthony
Who ya callin' a redneck? The name's Tony. Howdy Ma'am.
(turns to BG and tips off his hat)

Methos
You two know each other?

BG
Tony here was highly recommended by Methos Watcher ... and myself to uh, oversee your dancing.

Duncan
You're a stripper?

Anthony
Oh no. I teach a Dirty Dancing class in a university here in Paris.

Richie
There's a class that teaches you to dance dirty?

Connor
And it's taught in a university?

BG
Aha!

Kronos
Don't tell me you're a student of his.

Anthony
BG's one of my best students!

Methos
Somehow I don't like the sound of that.

Fitz
Really Methos, if I were you I'd be quite happy you know (winks)

Amanda
Where do I sign up?

Anthony
I'm afraid the class is full for now, Ma'am. Maybe for the next session.

Duncan
I can't believe it!

Methos
BG never kids on stuff like these.

Duncan
No, I mean, the resemblance is uncanny! You never knew a man named Consone?

Anthony
What kind fella has a name like that?!

Joe
Someone you'd probably wouldn't have wanted to know.

Richie
But Joe, they do have one thing in common, well, aside from their looks. They can dance.

BG
Whatcha doin' here anywayz, Tony?

Anthony
Just thought I'd give ya'll my feedback.

All eyes were on Tony and they all strained their ears in anticipation.

Anthony
For just three days of practice, ya'll did great! Ya'll have potential in the stripping business, not that I know anything about it.

Amanda
This has been wonderful guyz but I think it's time for me to hit the sack.

Duncan
Are you sure you don't mean, hit the bank?

Amanda
I cancelled a heist this morning to be at your dress rehearsal for your information!

Methos
More reason to hit the bank, right?

Amanda crinkles her nose in displeasure

Amanda
I .. am .. getting out of here.

Duncan
Amanda, it's not even after 8 yet!

Amanda
Not listening, (covering her ears, goes to the door).

Duncan
I better go with her. I'll see all of you tomorrow. Practice at 10 am and the show begins at 8 pm, right?

BG
Right!

Duncan follows Amanda out of the bar, soon the others followed suit. They know they need to be ready for tomorrow.

Night before Show Time!
