Drizz'l looks back at Garland's plan to summon the giant octopus, looking at the ridiculousness of it.

Cast Appearing[]


  • Dark Warriors' galleon


Drizz'l Let me get this straight.
Garland Take your time, pal.
Drizz'l You summoned a Deep One for us.
Garland Yup!
Drizz'l And it attacked us.
Garland You betcha!
Drizz'l And that was part of the plan somehow?
Garland The cornerstone of the whole shabang, I'd say.
Drizz'l And that was going to kill the Light Warriors by destroying our boat?
Garland See how simple this is?
Drizz'l (mumbles to himself) It's like you hate life...
Drizz'l What was to stop it from killing us too?
Garland Oh, you'll love this.
Garland See, after the Deep One swallowed the ship or the Light Warriors or whatever, I'd then summon up a dinosaur.
Drizz'l To what purpose?
Garland Oh, they'd fight each other, of course.
Drizz'l Giving us enough time to swim away, right?
Garland (gives a thumbs-up) Exactly!
Drizz'l I can't swim. Based on the fact that swimming involves aquatic travel, I can only assume Bikke can't swim.
Bikke I can sink like a rock, if'n that be counting.
Drizz'l Vilbert?
Vilbert The water would positively ruin my outfit.
Drizz'l And you can't swim, Garland, as you are wearing a hundred pounds of metal armor.
Garland Don't you think I thought of all that?
I'd summon a marmoset, a really big one.
