We talk to Gadget and the conversation has me puzzled. He tells Penny that Hong Kong is the home of the “shiny green suit”. Penny replies that Hong Kong is a free port where you can buy just about anything, but he insists that he wants a “shiny green suit”. What is up with that? Is this a dated cultural reference that I am missing? CAPs for anyone that can figure out what the heck they are talking about.
|It’s coming right for us!|
|Crouching Penny, Hidden Dragon?|
As you expect, the agent refuses to let us go and there seems to be no way out except back through the mouth. We key on the agent’s dialog that he is afraid of slipping and use the banana peel on him. Penny sets it in front of him and he, for absolutely no reason at all, walks forward to step on it! It’s dumb and clearly the art department didn’t know what to do with the script, but the resulting distraction allows Brain to escape! Penny remains trapped and gets thrown into a cell. Typical, eh?
|Yo listen up, here's the story, about a little girl that lives in an orange world...|
|You'll Never Get Me Lucky Charms… if I’m hiding in Hong Kong!|
|Instead of trying to solve the case?|
Fortunately, there is an umbrella, bowler hat, and other accoutrements scattered around that Brain can produce a “English businessman” costume. But if there was an umbrella just sitting there, why didn’t Gadget take that instead of buying tiny paper ones?
|Pardon me, do you happen to have any Grey Poupon?|
|This paper umbrella factory also makes real ones?|
