EP Flash: Stuck In An Elevator With Mandy Patinkin

By Kitty Myers.
Read by Mur Lafferty.

“Aren’t you Rube, the Grim Reaper in Dead Like Me?”

As he turned to look at me, an expression of amusement spread over his face like a wave of sunshine over a cloudy field. “I’m not a grim reaper in real life,” he mimicked, “but I do play one on TV!”


Rated PG. Contains references to drugs, claustrophobia, and canceled Showtime programming.

I've only seen a few minutes of Dead Like Me.  Though I do want to see more of it, I think I missed the real fun of this story by not being famililar with that show.  To me, Mandy Patinkin will always be Inigo Montoya.

^mega ditto.  I haven't seen Dead Like Me, but the whole time I was just imagining Inigo Montoya in that elevator.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

The story definitely worked better if you could imagine Mandy Patinkin as his grim reaper character Rube.
Mandy Patinkin as Inigo Montoya (you killed my father, prepare to die!) doesn't work quite so well....

Who is "Randy Patinkin"?  Is he related to Mandy?

Ooops. Sorry.
I knew what I meant, so it looked fine to me during proof reading - yeah, I have one of those brains.
Thanks for spotting the blooper.
I have fixed it in the original post.

Think nothing of it.  I'm just a smartass, is all (and if I were half as smart as I am an ass, maybe I might amount to something? ;))
