I've heard of salads having cherry tomatoes. But, a "Barry" tomato?
Seriously, though: this was a great consolidation with a classic adventure story. Almost like one of those "Prince Street Players" specials that used to be syndicated on American TV during the Sixties.
Author's Response: Maybe she was having a BARRY-YUM Meal

Maybe Mark and Valerie could go their separate ways from the rest of the Spindrifters. Become traveling stage magicians, even!
Here's the story of a red haired lady, who was always on the run from SID.
here's the story, of a man called Wilson, who was busy with a giantess of his own...

Hmmmm! I still picture Jack Taylor as being played by Bruce Campbell. Only, now it's because he and Kevin Sorbo did an episode of HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS directly lifted from "Jack and the Beanstalk!" With Bruce as Autolycus, self-proclaimed "King of Thieves" (although, it was more like a parody of Errol Flynn's Robin Hood).
Author's Response: I would very much like to know the episode title of that Hercules: The Legendary Journeys ep. Are there any giant women in it?

You're most novel twist, yet! But, who's Jack? That swashbuckling dragoon that was played by Bruce Campbell in between Brisco County, Jr. and his two EVIL DEAD sequels?
Author's Response: Well by now you've worked out who Jack turned out to be. I gave him the surname and then usually referred to him by it, to make it less predictable, and of course the surname was chosen so Betty could make the "Brave Little Taylor" pun in Chapter 4, to which he responds with a pun from the Brave Little Tailor "I'm saving 7 in one go." (ie Spindrift members).
