Posted under Episode 500, Story On By Chief

You are Martin, a cop that likes to bully people. Monday night, you pulled over the mayors daughter and she decided to bully you back. You've been crying for three days. Your boss just fired you. Your wife took your dog and left with a fireman. the only thing you have left in life is your soulmate, a small possum named Pasta that you picked up off the side of the road
 last week.
Martin, what the hell are you doing here?
The Possum: "Pasta! Come here, sweetie!"
Martin: "What did I tell you about eating all my pizza?"

> You reveal your troubled past to Pasta.

"I used to work in a bank downtown, but my job sucked."
"And then one day, this girl walked in to the bank. She was cute. Kind of short. Red hair.
 Really red hair."
You think about the first time you saw her. It's hard to put into words how beautiful she was. "She came in and started talking to me. And before I knew it, we were friends.

You reveal the girl ended up robbing the bank

 and died in the explosion. You wonder if you had just killed her when she robbed the bank, would things have been better?
Your heart aches with every moment you spent with her. You tried to give her all your money.

You hand Pasta a picture of your wife with the Firefighter named Johnny Steel, who also was the genius behind the Wagon.

"This guy is a total jerk."
The Possum: "I don't see anything wrong with him!"
Martin: "Oh yeah? Well maybe I'm just being paranoid."
The Possum: "Well why do you hate him so much?"

You explain all the reasons you hate Johnny Steel:

 he stole your dog; he took your wife away from you; he caused you to lose your job; he stole the Mayor's daughter away; he probably killed that little girl; he was an arsonist.

Pasta calls Officer Cory, a guy who always dresses well and carries a bucket with him.

 He always seems to have some sort of problem with his wife, and it's always fun to listen in on their conversation.
You watch as Cory explains to the other officers what happened during the bank robbery, and then tells them he knows the name of the criminal, and how to find the evidence
 that links him directly to the bank robbery.
Cory, the man who has been secretly falling in love with you since your first day on the force.
You talk about your troubles with Cory, and he assures you that everything is going to be okay.

You unbutton the top two buttons on your shirt

, revealing the white skin underneath.
Pasta watches you intently.
You think about Cory and the future. What will happen after this? Where will you go from here? You love him more than anything in the world.

You make the first move and say to Officer Cory

, "Will you marry me?"
He hesitates for a moment. Then he says, "I'd rather not say."
Cory and Pasta have a relationship similar to your own. They both live in the same house and spend a lot of time together.

You ask Pasta to pressure Cory into giving you an answer

"Pasta! Make him tell us!"
Pasta is not used to being commanded like this. He's normally so docile. But he decides to do as he's told. He presses Cory into giving a real answer.
"Fine. Yes. I will marry you."
Your heart skips a beat at the news. And you hug Pasta tightly.
You see Pasta has a really nice face. It's pretty large.
