So El Guapo and Duckling calmly assess the situation by doing the only reasonable thing: Finding the town wackjob, Rocksteady, that got them into this mess. Clearly he's the most reasonable person. Duckling has gone near catatonic and El Guapo is just nutty with thoughts of Snape corpse dancing in his head.
The two of them go to the big game. The crowd is just letting out as they search for Cordelia, Beebop and especially Rocksteady. Duckling just wants her daddy, so El Guapo leaves her to search alone. When he finds Cordelia and Rocksteady waiting for Beebop, he flat out tells them. The conversation goes thusly:
El Guapo: He's dead.
El Guapo: He's dead.
Rocksteady: Riiiiigght. Where's Duckling?
El Guapo: In the car.
Rocksteady: Don't let her escape!
El Guapo: On it, boss.
Cordelia and El Guapo go off to get to Duckling. Cordelia is freaked out as well, but Duckling scares the crap out of everyone by being calm as toast. Beebop and Rocksteady show. Rocksteady squeezes Duckling in the middle of the front seat between himself and Dave. The four of them drive to an empty parking lot and discuss how they are going to get away with manslaughter.
Everyone states reasons for what they should do. Cordelia and Beebop are concerned about their image. Rocksteady says they have alibis and will go to jail. El Guapo once again goes all Freudian about people going missing everyday. Duckling worries about little things like stains on her immortal soul.
Then they make plans for a good ole fashioned grave diggin after school. Duckling has a minor bout of having a conscious, but Rocksteady verbally talks her out of that for now.
Then they all go to the malt shop for a soda. You know, for alibi's sake.
1. I just want to go back to how dumb these kids are. Peer preasure or no, this is just off the charts goofy. Kids, if you find a body that you helped kidnap, do one of two things: Tell no one or tell the authorities. Learned that lesson from Stand by Me.
2. Good touch making Rocksteady corner Duckling in the front seat. Honestly, this is one of the most threatening things he has done and makes for a more calculating villian.
3. Rocksteady is also a smooth talking dude. Not many folks could calm a lady down with talk of your own father's burning to death.
