Steve: Maybe I should pick a Scarrok. They get two distilled heal spring melons. That sounds good. Is it good?
Zack: I don't know.
Steve: Can you find out? Look in the index.
Zack: Which one. Raven was bragging about there being five of them.
Steve: Is one of them an index to indexes?
Zack: No, but the good news is the indexes appear to be illustrated. I don't see it in the main index.
Steve: It's not in the provisions index under healing.Zack: "Distilled?" No, maybe "Drugs."
Steve: Drugs goes straight from DMSO to Emotion Enhancer.Zack: Wait, I found it, under "Natural Substances." Page 104. It says, "Heals all wounds and most diseases."
Steve: Can I just have the dmso and emotion enhancer?
Zack: Sure. Combine them and you will instantly feel melancholy.
Steve: Sweet. Okay, now what the hell is a Scarrok?
Zack: Look it up yourself, fucker.
