Guybrush: Hello there!
Blind Old Man gasps
Guybrush: are you ok?
Blind Old Man: just don't sneak up on me like that-now who are you?
Guybrush: Threepwood, Guybrush Threepwood- I want to be a pirate!
Blind Old Man: that name is almost as loony as you son, you sound like a flooring inspector to me.
Guybrush: I feel strangely insulted…
Blind Old Man: (in a dead serious tone) wow you're good enough to fight the sword master!
Guybrush: ….I want to be a pirate!
Blind Old Man: right, right, go to the SCUMM bar, it's filled with pirates….and flatulence…
Guybrush: that's great, well I'm off to seek my fortune.

Pirate: right…
Guybrush walks to nearest table
Pirate: and who are ye being…ye?
Guybrush: why are you talking like that?
Pirate: ahem-who are you?
Guybrush: My name is Guybrush Threepwood and this conversation will end in a repetitive joke
Pirate: HAHAH…ahem-your name is pretty stupid I'll give you that
Guybrush: oh yea what's yours?
Pirate: Just call me Dudesweep
Guybrush: anyways, I want to be a pirate…err
Dudesweep: 'Ar' so ye want to be a swashbuckler, a buccaneer?
Guybrush: no, a pirate.
Dudesweep: (glare) you're as stupid as your name.
Blind Old Man: but not as loony!
Dudesweep: talk to those important looking pirates over there.
Guybrush walks to table with three men
Green pirate: Ar, love's labor is lost!
Spielberg: have you brought the donuts?
Blue pirate: I hope you have he's pretty hungry.
Guybrush: why is Stephen Spielberg here?
Green pirate: he won a bet with George, this is his prize.
Blue pirate: quite true, George lost on purpose…I don't think would like to make an appearance in Jaws…
Green Pirate: anyways, what's your problem?
Guybrush: I want to be a pirate!
Blue pirate: we do need more of those…
Green pirate: ever since Le Chuck….
Guybrush: Who's Le Chuck?
Blue Green=yellow: Le Chuck the ghost pirate has robbed us of all our men our crews are drinking milk, not the grog- GROG it's what's for dinner!-he has wasted our ships upon Davy Jones' locker-
Guybrush: filled with smelly shorts no doubt, he never could get the hang of that washing machine

Skeleton Bob: NO, this matter involves…the governor; you see there's a new man in town
Le Chuck: a new man?
Skeleton Bob: a new 'Guy' to be exact.
Skeleton Bob laughs his head off…literally
