*Looks up

"There is something fishy going on here. These automatons are fake."

*Pulls the head off one of them

"Look!"

The space where the head used to be is occupied by a large (and rather sheepish looking) fish.

"These are not automatons at all! They are all being operated by some kind of marine based life form!"

*Pulls out pistol and aims it at the fish...

Be careful how you aim Master Cubinoid, there are some nice Kind Edwards over on the One Line Limerick thread and I am sure I can find a deep fat fryer somewhere here, shame to let a nice supper go to waste!

Tosses head and pulls trigger anyway.

*Water squirts from the pistol

"I am just trying to keep the critter alive for questioning...I intend to give him a proper grilling."

*Pauses

"Because deep fat frying is a little unhealthy, or so I've heard..."

"That's a rotten rumor perpetrated by people who have never eaten properly fried fish. Don't let yourself believe it for a second. There is no fate more noble for a dead fish than to be battered and fried in a skillet of hot grease."

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

Hmmmmm! Fish and Chips (proper UK chips not those silly "French fries" efforts, which are originally from Belgium anyway) with a portion of Mushy Peas. BTB battered fish has to be deep fried.  Grin

Wow...does this mean their heads are full of pickled herring or smoked sardines?

If so, that's great news, because everything's better with greasy fish from a can!

Mike, go back to the machine and get our stash of spiced pilaf and Rocky Road ice cream.  Grin  Don't forget the sweet and sour sauce.  I'm sure someone will want that.

Meanwhile I'll have some of that tea I keep hearing about...

Evelyn comes back into the room, carrying a tea tray.
"I say, the Private apparently got lost on the way to the kitchen! I hope he didn't stray into the experimental breeding facility. Or have the creatures already been fed today?"

She wrinkles her nose in disgust.
"It does smell fishy in here, does it?"

"No, that's the conservatory." announces the Private he appears again, after a suspiciously long period of time in the conservatory.

"Lovely Begonias" he adds somewhat unsually.

Hello, what's all this? I go away for a few days on non-secret business, and now the place is full of bullet-holed automata and reeks of fish... whup! And I've almost done an ankle on... what's this? A set of secret screwdrivers.

Blimey, now who's been secretly screwing here?

The Private's complexion suddenly matches his military jacket; he obviously seems ill at ease with innuendo.

“Could I help the tea Ms. Adler,” he says, and starts laying out cups and saucers in regimented order.

"Oh, thank you so much for the help!"
Evelyn giggles nervously, and lays out the milk jug and sugar bowl.
"This is real sugar by the way, I've checked with one of the lab rats to be sure." She pauses for a moment, gnawing her lower lip in thought.
"Unless someone smuggled a really slow poison in an unopened packet."

"Ah yes, the lab rats.
I've been working hard in the secret lab...that we don't have... breeding a kind of rat that is immune to toxin of any kind. Problem is they like the whiskey but it doesn't affect them like it used to.

Milk, 2 sugars please. Would you hold my water pistol, please?"

Hands Sir Cubinoid a cup of tea.
"Milk and two sugar, Sir."

She watches him closely.

I'll have some tea, NO 'sugar' please. 

*takes water pistol from Mr. Wormster and sprays Cubinoid with it*

Do wake up, Cubinoid.  If we have to call the ambulance, we definitely won't be not so secret anymore.  I think...

Tea, please, NO sugar, and no milk, I'll leave the milk to you mammalian types others, if you please.

Do you have any herbal tea for Mike?  His kind shouldn't have any...caffeine in any form, really.  Thank you.

[whispered aside]No, no, Mike, they won't be calling the Time Police.  Not after this mess...

*Pokes head in the room*

Oi! I found a phone number in the library (and since phones haven't been invented yet we can't possibly have one yet). The number's labelled "Time Police"; there's a very lovely girl on the other end of the phone right now, wondering if we have anything to report to them. It seems they know we don't exist.

The Time Police?  Oh excellent! Could you ask them if they require a somewhat gormless but plucky male assistant to the Time Inspector. I always wanted to be a Police Chronstanble.
