Manzanita grew up.

Giovanni and Tina had another baby, little Sonia; their older son was still away at boarding school.

Giovanni made it to Emperor of Evil again, and then, having reached a ripe age, announced he planned to retire.

He was awarded a Clone Voucher, and proposed to have a new son, who he decided should be called Giovanni II.

Giovanni II of course was Evil, Hot-Headed, and Mean-Spirited. Watch out world!

They were burgled!

Giovanni came home from work right in the middle of the burglary.

"Give us a break, boss, I didn't know it was your house."

"Right. I'm letting you go, but you OWE me bigtime. When I call, you jump. Capisce?

"Oh thank you so much. I'll never forget this."

"You won't. And leave the umbrella at home next time you break into someone's house. Now scat!"
