Bikke and Garland make a hasty retreat.
- Pravoka Docks
|Bikke and Garland made a daring escape to the Pravoka Docks.|
|Bikke||So why is it we ran like dogs? Yar.|
|Garland||Are you mad?!|
|Bikke||I'd say vexed. Yar.|
|Garland||Those accursed Light Warriors defeated your entire pirate crew! Your vicious, vicious pirate crew!|
|Bikke||Aye, that be true, that be true.|
But I wouldn't characterize me crew as being vicious per se. Yar.
At least, not since the scurvy took their strength away. Yar.
|Bikke||I can't afford real oranges, so they been eatin' cheetos for three, maybe four months now. Yar.|
They be weak as kittens.
|Garland||But... what about the grueling henchman interview process? I hired you guys because a big mean villain like me has to be able to beat up his henchmen and your pirates were the only guys I could push around.|
|Bikke||Under normal circumstances, ye would've gone from living to meat in under five seconds. Yar.|
Aye. That was the work o' the scurvy. Yar.
|Garland||So... I'm not a total bad ass fueled by relentless evil?|
|Bikke||By Neptune's beard, ye be only slightly less bad ass than kelp!|
|Bikke||If'n it be any consolation to ye, it is evil to beat up on people what is riddled with scurvy.|
|Garland||Aww, shucks. You're just sayin' that to make me feel better.|
