Original series Suitable for all readers


My friend from the now defunct site "The Mysterons Complex", Jay Quirk, had posted these captions for the end credits panels, some months ago, into one of her site’s forums.  They were so funny that I thought of asking her if she wouldn’t accept to post them here as well…  She  graciously accepted and, after making some editing, sent them here for you to enjoy (C.B.)

S: Adam, no, I....ARGH!
B: Try hitchhiking! *Slams door shut and drives off*

Scarlet: *Being pulled back into rocks* Dianne, I don't care how much you want more, I’ve got to finish this mission.... What do you mean Adam would!?!

*Middle of an action scene, we see Captain Scarlet heroically swinging from the Cannon of the Tank, risking everything to save the day once more. Then, the string that is holding him up to prevent him from looking like an idiot, as he would no way be able to do any of these stunts alone, snaps.
