*sticks his head back in the room*

I do not believe we have a rowboat. Do we by any chance have a captain's daughter anywhere? Otherwise I fear we may be reduced to the services of the paddywagon.

"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."

*crawls under table to check on "drunken" sailor*

He's not drunk.  He's another automaton, dressed as a sailor.  Huge oil leak from the back of his head, though.

*crawls out from under table to hear a 'whooooooooooooosh'*

I believe that's the time police 'whoooosh'.  I'll just sit here to hide the drunken sailor automaton's legs.  Please pass the fish.

I believe the secret rowboat was in the top secret garage between the invisible self-inflating air-kraken and the spaceship that has yet to be invented. At least that was where I last didn't see it.

"Ah yes, now I remember. I never saw it there, of course. Well since its not there and we don't have a drunken sailor anyway, I'd say things worked themselves out. The fish is delicious by the by."

"Good..."

*Looks at the plate closely.

"At least, I thought that was a fish. It doesn't seem to have any gills though...just those tiny ears. And, forgive me, but do those appear to be tiny little arms?"

Did these fish come from the glowing green pond we don't have, in the back courtyard that's not there?

That might explain the arms...

No, no, I think they filled that in for a tennis court. That we don't have.

No, I'm sure we did have just a moment ago though.

I do have a big bowl of custard though, maybe you'd like some...

... wait a minute, who's nicked the custard?

Well, if somebody's eating custard around here, I'm probably not the only real human .. okay, hands up everybody who's not a mechanical or automata?

*[try to imagine the sound the muzzle of a .455calibre pump-action Gentleman's walking-cane makes as it's pressed against Pte Weasel's possibly non-human forehead]*

I think you need to be a little more specific there, son... I mean, that might not be a grey-mush brain in there, but I'm sure this'll do some interesting damage...

More specific?

I rather enjoy custard; a milk based vanilla dessert topping. Its nutrition fuels my body and is commonly referred to as food. Funnily enough this is not the first time I’ve been threatened with violence over custard.

The first time was in Burma. Of course it was referred to as Crème anglaise and the man who threatened me was a French Chef who decided that my assertion that the custard should be thicker met with a rather expertly thrown bread knife.

Interestingly I believe the best custard is thick enough to be cut with a bread knife.

Also, if you shoot me, you’ll cover Miss Adler in a fine mist of brains, or cog shrapnel.  I’m not entire sure.  And if I’m not entirely sure, neither are you. Also, it would be rather unpleasant for Miss Adler whatever the case.

So would you mind awfully that before you do anything rash, I take a step to the right?

I'd rather not be covered in shredded brain or cog shrapnel, thank you very much! Getting brain tissue or grease out of your clothes is always such a bother!

Do you really think, this Private is another automaton? Did they make them in bulk?
