After about a half page of discussing the homemade silencer, and how that friend likely had some secret compartment to hide the gun for just when he needs it, complete with a locking mechanism and other doodads, Arctor's inner monologue reveals he has his service weapon in a much more devious hidden place, where nobody will ever find it: his glove compartment.
Charles Freck's suicide attempt. Nuff said. (Beware the multi-eyed eight-foot-high being with the endless scroll!)
Who will be reading you your sins in shifts throughout eternity!
The argument about how a 21-speed bicycle works, leading the drug-addled characters to determine that someone stole eleven gears from it.
It gets even more confused when Freck thinks he sees one more gear than the rest do. Then two less. Then two more again.
Barris is going to find out who's got something against Arctor. How? He's set up a a microphone to start recording when someone comes through the front door. To increase the chance that intruders will enter via the front and not another way, he's left a note on the door saying that it's unlocked. Arctor and Luckman are shocked and not even sure whether he's being serious or not.
Barris: Of course I'm kidding! Only a psychotic would do that, leave the front door of the house open with the door unlocked and a note on the door.
Arctor: What'd you write on the note, Barris?
Barris:...I wrote, "Come on in, the door's unlocked."
The homemade silencer, which just makes gunshots even louder. So much so that Arctor is startled awake by the gunshot and grabs his gun.
