PrivateDetective Nick Danger, Third Eye (voiced by Phil Austin) is sitting in his office, listening to "the monotonous staccato of rain on my desktop", when he is approached by a suspicious little man, Rocky Roccoco (a PeterLorre expy, voiced by Phil Proctor), who wants to sell him what Nick describes as "a two-bit ring from a [[{{Spoonerism}} Cracker Back Jox]]", and mentions a woman with many names, including Betty Jo Bialosky.
