Dialogue Edit

Anchors Away Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Sad Icon Well Don, this is the end of the line for you.
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon I gave the Try-N-Save the best years of my life. Stopped a hundred shoplifters from committing heinous, grisly misdemeanors.
Don Brodka Sad Icon All to wind up here. Taking the only job I could find -- night guard at an anchor store.
Don Brodka Sad Icon Sure, it’s the best anchor store in town. Hankerin’ for Anchorin’ and Anchor Notions just can’t compete.
Don Brodka Sad Icon Still, it somehow feels like a step down.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Squeaky Voice Teen Icon Good morning, sir! How was the night shift?
Don Brodka Icon ‘Bout 3AM, a bird landed on the big anchor. I grabbed it for questioning, but it played dumb. I let it go with a warning.
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon Great Scott! The big anchor is missing! We’ve been robbed!
Don Brodka Surprised Icon What?! I've been staring at it all night!
Don Brodka Surprised Icon Who? Who could possibly make off with that massive anchor?!
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon I’ll tell you who. The man, the myth, the legend - The Sea Captain!

Anchors Away Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Surprised Icon Sea Captain?! Why would HE want an anchor?
Squeaky Voice Teen Confused Icon Uh, for his boat?
Don Brodka Surprised Icon Anchors are for boats? I guess I should have done some research before taking this gig.
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon They say the Sea Captain was raised by a kraken, and sails a ship made from the bones of lost sailors.
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon Others say he’s a lonely former mailman who wears a captain’s hat as a conversation starter. Either way... spooky stuff!
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon Kid, you need to lay off the glue. Let's check out the surveillance tape.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Surprised Icon One minute the anchor is there, the next it’s gone! Impossible!
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon It’s the magic of the sea.
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon There’s no such thing as sea magic. Only land magic. Magic stops at the shore, idiot.
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon What do they teach you kids in school nowadays?
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon Well, I am NOT getting fired twice in the same week. Let’s talk to this sea captain!

Anchors Away Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Icon Kid, hang back while I shake down the old man. And watch out -- once he knows we’re onto him, he may swallow the anchor to hide his crime.
Squeaky Voice Teen Icon It weighs twenty tons.
Don Brodka Sad Icon I once cornered a shoplifter who swallowed three eyewitnesses before I could react.
Don Brodka Icon Your hardcore thieves are all first-rate swallowers.

All Objectives Started Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Icon Sea Captain! Paid any visits to the anchor store lately?
Sea Captain Icon Yarrr. I, too, be interested in the disappearances there.
Sea Captain Aghast Icon Beware, Brodka. There’s deviltry afoot. Anchor Management be a cursed and wretched place.
Don Brodka Icon Uh-huh. By the way, is it true you used to be a mailman?
Sea Captain Aghast Icon Aye. Forty-three years I cruised the neighborhood of Elmwood Heights. ‘Tis a cursed and wretched place, too.
Don Brodka Icon Any places NOT cursed and wretched, you figure?
Sea Captain Icon Portland’s not TOO cursed and wretched. I been there one time. Good food, nice bookstores.

Anchors Away Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon That salty dog as good as admitted he’s our man, but we need to catch him in the act.
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon You’re dealing with powers you can’t possibly understand, Mr. Brodka!
Don Brodka Surprised Icon The only thing that scares me is unsolved crimes. Spiders aren’t great, and the dream where I’m skydiving but my parachute won’t open is pretty bad, too.
Don Brodka Icon But mainly unsolved crimes.
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon *ack* He's back! Returned to the scene of the crime to curse us with his nautical necromancy!
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon Oh no he doesn't.Tail him!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Squeaky Voice Teen Scared Icon Five more anchors are missing!
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon Sea Captain! Tell me what you know! No more riddles!
Sea Captain Icon I bet it never occurred to you to lick one of the anchors you guard, did it?
Don Brodka Icon I must be slipping. Usually, licking the merchandise is the first step in any serious investigation.
Don Brodka Surprised Icon *licks anchor* Hmm... tastes sweet. Is this... spun sugar?

Anchors Away Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Sea Captain Icon Anchor Management been cutting corners, making their anchors not from steel, but from sugar.
Don Brodka Annoyed Icon And every morning, the sprinklers dissolve the sugar-anchors! Why didn’t I think of that?!
Sea Captain Icon Probably because it’s a pretty dumb idea.
Sea Captain Icon Thanks to this evil, the yachts and powerboats of a hundred retired doctors have been set adrift, dashed on the rocks.
Don Brodka Sad Icon Humanity... what a joke.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Don Brodka Icon I’m sorry I doubted you, Sea Captain.
Sea Captain Icon It’s not yer fault, lad. I never would have believed humanity capable of such evil, if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes.
Sea Captain Icon I no longer understand the land world It’s time to return to the sea, and my fish girlfriend.
Don Brodka Surprised Icon You mean... you’re dating a mermaid?
Sea Captain Icon I meant exactly what I said.
