Ash: Good Luck! I hope you'll find the help you need this week!
<Character>: Just who IS this Mad Haberdasher?
<Character>: You said he could help, but after everything else I've seen here in Wanderland, I'm a bit wary.
Cheshire Twilly: One doesn't try to EXPLAIN the Mad Haberdasher.
Cheshire Twilly: That would be like asking why the sound of one hand clapping is annoying.
<Character>: But... one hand can't-
Cheshire Twilly: Exactly.
Cheshire Twilly: So. You'll want to be off. If you're late, you won't get any teacake!
Cheshire Twilly: It's cake. You serve at tea. He bakes them himself. You're in for a treat!
<Character>: White Toggit!
<Character>: Is THIS the party you were tardy for?
<Character>: Am I late?
Cysero: Depends on whose watch you're using, doesn't it?
Cysero: It looks like I'm not wearing a watch. Do YOU think you're on time?
Cysero: Excellent! Have a teacake!
<Character>: What are YOU?
Doormouse: I'm a doormouse.
<Character>: What HAPPENED to you?!
Doormouse: I was a mouse, doing mousely things. Then I ate some of HIS cake flour.
<Character>: I think I'm full, thank you.
Cysero: I'm pretty sure I'm empty. Maybe seven-fifths full. Except that would be overfull, which I'm not.
Cysero: So that fraction is wrong. Have some tea!
<Character>: I'd really just like to ask you for some help, if that's alright.
Cysero: Certainly! I am excellent at providing advice you'd never think to ask for.
Cysero: Like... "If you only turn left, you'll never get to where you want to go."
Cysero: Or "Pants explode if you soak them in nitroglycerin and then put them on fire elementals."
Cysero: That's one I learned the hard way.
<Character>: How does a fire elemental put on pants?
<Character>: Right. Of course. About my question, though...
<Character>: My friend, Aria, is trapped by the Queen of Tarts, who thinks she's trying to steal her tart recipe.
<Character>: I need to come up with a way to save her without committing regicide.
<Character>: I got the feeling that's frowned upon here.
Cysero: Pretty much, yep.
White Toggit: Yes, yes. Killing the queen would mean YOU lose your head!
<Character>: So how do I convince the queen to let Aria go?!
Cysero: well, when *I* want something that someone doesn't want to give me, I give them a gift.
<Character>: Isn't that like a bribe?
Cysero: Nope! It's to make them like you more. If they like you more, they'll give you things.
Cysero: If they give you things, you're more likely to get what you want. You want your friend released.
<Character>: I still think that sounds like a bribe.
Cysero: Think less.
<Character>: So, lets see. The queen likes to bake. You like to bake. Do you know any recipes the queen doesn't?
Cysero: All of them.
<Character>: You know ALL the recipes the queen doesn't?
<Character>: Ok, I'll take your word for it. Can you teach me one to make for the queen?
Cysero: Can you stand on your head?
Cysero: Neither can I. How about learning Schnozzberry Tartlets?
<Character>: That would be wonderful. Hopefully she'll trade the tarts for Aria's freedom, and we can finally go home.
<Character>: I just have one more question. Do... do you keep putting on new hats when I'm not looking?
Cysero: Of course not. I only have one hat.
<Character>: But it keeps changing shape.
Cysero: It gets bored very quickly.
