Alas, poor Captein! I knew him, Engie; a fellow of infinite confusion, of most unbelievable exploits; he hath inadvertantly saved me from doom a thousand times; and now, how conflicted my mind is! My sanity suffers for it. Here hung this mask, through which tea was inexplicably drunk I know not how oft. Where be you now?
Mmm.... I would say that Snippy puts on the scarf and mask as a last resort, then the real Captain shows up and starts an argument over which one is real? that is, if Zee Captain is not just one of Snippy's personalities?
