Confronted with the Pirate Pizza delivery pirate, Kitaro crouches down into a defensive posture and radios the rest of the team. Despite his bad pun, everyone gets the message. Suddenly, the Dispatcher shouts "Behind you!" in Kitaro's ear only (temporarily switching to one-to-one communication), and Kitaro barely rolls to the side as a second Pirate Pizza delivery pirate slams a piping hot pizza into the wall, right where Kitaro's head was a moment ago. It's hard to tell if the Pirates have stolen the delivery target or not -- being pirates, their faces are twisted by gnarrrly snarrrrls. The first Pirate sets down his pizzas and raises his wrench, while the second one pulls out a pizza cutter.
Behind the first pirate, Kitaro sees a door open, and a ninja-like figure emerges. Skipito has not yet been spotted by the pirates. At this angle, he sees only one pirate, standing with his back to the hall, looking down the stairs. He sets down some pizzas and raises a wrench in the air.
Meanwhile, outside, Bozuko attempts to maintain the crowd's attention, but despite his best efforts (4 + 4 - 2 = 6) the crowd loses interest and begins to wander away. As the crowd parts, Bozuko clearly sees another Pirate Pizza delivery pirate heading straight for him, carrying a half dozen round pizza sheets which have no doubt had the edges sharpened to razor-sharp sharpness. He snarls and hurls one straight for Bozuko's head.
The crowd thinks this is part of the show, and they stop to pay attention, thinking that things are going to get interesting now, especially when Rin's fireworks go off.
Back at the van, Rin and Toru pile back inside and prepare to get the team evac'd as soon as the delivery is made by Skipito. They each get into their respective doors and sit down, and Rin begins to pull up maps.
"Nice job team," announces Toru to nobody in particular.
"Thanks," says nobody. Rin and Toru turn around and see that the back of the van is occupied by two more Pirate Pizza delivery pirates. One has his hand wrapped around a bunch of wires that were previously behind a computer panel.
"Now how about you two walk the plank," says the Pirate on the left.
The Pirate on the right smiles and yanks, hard. Sparks fly, and the last thing you hear from the Dispatcher is
"What is going on out th--KSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH..."
