> Consume tinfoil to absorb its powers.

Maybe if you Shifted to a reality where your food had already arrived, dipstick! But no, only one of your alternate selves can absorb things by eating them. You don't even want to access the memory of how she got that ability. All you know is that it was an accident involving a copy of Kirby's Squeak Squad.

> Time to go over and talk to him?

Well, this command wasn't very ... commanding, so you decide you'd rather wait until the rudeness associated with talking out loud on a phone in the middle of a restaurant surpasses the rudeness of walking up and greeting someone who is currently on the phone. Shouldn't take too long with your Pulchritude ...

> Clearly Mr. Mustache is the hero. We wouldn't want to get in his way.

> ...Yeah, no. Eavesdrop without being obvious. Or, if everyone in the restaurant is obviously listening in, just join them. We should be fine as long as we blend in with the crowd.

You vow to aid his heroic quest in any way you can! By which you mean you wait and listen; he's getting louder, so it would be harder not to listen.

His voice sounds like a cross between Snidely Whiplash and Spongebob Squarepants. His argument reaches a momentary crescendo with, "I said I'm eating at Fin Dining, Hal!" (Hey, it's the name of the woman Slinus spoke to on his phone.)

> Don't let the short guy distract you from your surroundings- he might be someone else entirely. (That said, don't let your guard down around him, either.)

Yeah, and if there's one thing you established back when you met Slinus, it's that even if he's with the Mercenary Consortium, you do not want to tangle with him witout knowing anything.

Come to think of it, you don't actually know anything about Slinus's combat capabilities, either ...

> Wait for food. If something's about to go down it will probably come to you.

Also true!

You nearly choke on your Bonk.

Hahahahaha ... You didn't seriously mistake that Consortium doofus for ME, didja? Trust me, you will know me when you see me.
But I'm getting ahead of myself, as usual. Hello, Jenny! My name is Prayer's Mania. Wanna play a game?

>While he's probably not going to give us a choice, try to refuse anyway. Also, point out that we weren't assuming shorty WAS Prayer's Mania, we were just watching him because he's so ridiculously OBVIOUS and nobody else stood out.
