He was trying to kill her over having lost at the National Talent Show Finals while they were children. She is in town to give a televised speech for the Save Our Fragile Planet news report. Mr. Garrison is now bitter of Kathie's success while he became a third grade public school teacher. Buying his rifle at Jimbo's Guns no one in town is suspicious of him, even if his plans are obvious. Mr. Garrison goes to the Book Depository on the suggestion of Officer Barbrady to get a better view from across the street for the presentation. Mrs. Gifford arrives to the stage in a bullet-proof dome to which Mr. Garrison quips, "Looks like I'm not the only one to think of killing Kathie Lee."
- The Book Depository is a reference to the President Kennedy assassination in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald.
