Anyway, resetting time to before the train wreck gives us just enough time to squeeze in some all-important Nintari practice.
Wow. Such incredible graphics. And we'll get to see 'em again (at least I will) since Willy needs to practice Nintari a few times in order to keep his skills up for the big championship at the finale. I managed to squeeze another play session in before dinner, so go ahead and watch that exact same video one more time. Excitement! Adventure! DYNAMIX!Sheila: Willy, time for dinner!!
Oh, thank God.
Hey, Willy, the plot's calling!
Willy: Dinner looks great, Mom. What is it?BW
Carrots with Willyblood, remember?
Sheila: Where's your father? Everyone's always late around here...
Brianna: C'est coq au vin avec pommes frites et vegetables jubilee.BW
It's Coq au Vin (chicken braised in wine, lardons - that is to say strips or cubes of pork fat - mushrooms, and possibly garlic) with french fries and your blood-soaked carrots. (Not an exact translation.)
Willy: Shut uppez-vous, ya little show-off.BW
I don't even know where to begin. Your pronunciation is atrocious and I think most of those words aren't even French. The only thing I understood was "vous."
Sheila: Tres bien, Brianna. Willy, don't talk to your little sister that way.BW
Sheila didn't check the answering machine. Even if you leave the messages intact, the message doesn't get through to her. She is lazy.
Tiffany: Ya know, Cliff's father is a millionaire, and he's not as old as Daddy. He made his fortune in women's lingerie.
Hey, Tropers! Meet Willy's older sister, Tiffany. Can you say The Libby? I knew you could. How about Valley Girl? Not that the answering machine messages didn't make this as predictable as the rest of this first day of the storyline. (Don't worry, things take a turn for the whatthefuck soon enough.) Cliff's dad made a fortune in women's lingerie. Okay. So what does he do now that he's not a gigolo?
Willy: And I'll bet he looks pretty cute in it, too!
That was actually a pretty good zinger, Willy. Or... or maybe you're fishing for information. Maybe you want to be your own sister's father-in-law someday? Not uncreepy.
Tiffany goes on and on about how awesome and rich her boyfriend's dad is. This, of course, makes the impending news from Gordon that much more of a surprise to the player - who, if you'll recall, got an answering machine message for Gordon from an employment agency. We do get this choice line, though:
Tiffany: Cliff is like... so intellectual. Ya know what I mean?
Well, we know what the word you're using means. I very much doubt you do, but keep telling yourself how smart your boyfriend is. If he was really smart, he wouldn't be in this game.BW
His voice is on the answering machine. It probably cost half the budget to get him to record that line. Of printed text.
Willy shares our sentiment:
Willy: Then what's he doin' with you?
