"Glad that's over with," he says trying to stretch his back. "Where should we start next? The vacuuming, the tables, the lanes?"
Big surprise there.
"How about a break?"
Brand says. And he pulls out the inevitable picnic basket from the cart. It's full of yumminess! Enough for three hungry halflings and a Vault-kiddy who has been working far too hard today.

Charity has nothing more to say either. Just sips her coffee for now.
Sitar's Strings - Back Alley

But you know what they say... Haters gonna hate!
Clarissa's gonna have to oust these hateful, hateful supremacists another day! This outcome isn't an outcome that she's feeling good about. She'll have to be more discreet next time...if there is a next time, that is.
She'll have to regale Ilpholin with this story soon. Ugh! She's not looking forward to reporting in to Ilph about this half-disappointment... On the other hand, she did destroy their furniture and their carpet. And she stole Brian's top hat! She sincerely hopes that spiteful Starling doesn't have good insurance on his restaurant, but she's sure he did!
But now's not the time to scheme and think evil thoughts! Now's the time to make-out with Becky and maybe consider looping a tendril around Scott's ankles if he is nearby and dragging him back into the darkness of the back alley. Or lightness of the back alley. This isn't the Red Zone with alleys of doom! This is an upscale neighborhood. Bah, who is Clarissa kidding! Scott is probably too far away for the tendrils to trip him without completely revealing her position anyway and with what all went down in the restaurant, she doesn't want to physically touch him! Eww! But maybe...
Clarissa attempts to make use of one of her tails to flick a garbage can lid or some other small object at Scott like a frisbee! Maybe he'll fall over and smash his phone or something! It is a shot in the dark, but Clarissa doesn't have any more energy to spare to devote to stopping Scott from making tracks. Becky is her main focus! Becky is her vice.

Becky, needless to say, is quite enjoying making out with Clarissa right there in the alleyway. However that approaching Remnant vehicle does
get the attention of her consiousness, and she knows that that bunch of killjoys wouldn't be interested in joining in (not even Commander Vasquez, and isn't that
"Time to say there's no place like home, Mistress Clarissa?"
Becky teases, whispering in her partner's ear even as she readies her powers and
goes to turn them to give the approaching squaddies the best possible profile view of the two sultry- and barely-clad beauties!
Emily's more than a mook! She has a name! A tektek! A text colour! She has a mother who has been seen onscreen, and who also has a name, tektek, and text colour! I'm not sure if she's exactly a PC yet, but she's definitely more than a mook! A mini-boss maybe?
Oh, and the phone-without-a-cord that Clarissa thought of using as a garotte is the same phone that Starling pulled out of his pocket earlier in the scene. So definitely a mobile phone, all along.
Scott, however, is totally a mook. He was speaking in gray, which is my npc colour, and he didn't even get a name until Emily needed to shout it at him. He gets thwapped with a garbage can lid (which is inexplicably the old metal style, instead of the heavy duty plastic wheelie bin kind) and goes sprawling. His phone makes a distressing crunch when it hits the ground. "Nooooo! Not my iPhone! I spent three months pay on that!"
At any rate, Berissa make their escape. The Remnant people go in and question Starling and Emily offscreen.
