And there's the totem! It occurs to me that Fuzzball and Scuzzball didn't really do any detective work to find this thing--they got thrown in jail, and then summoned, and then McNougat told them where to find it. They're not great detectives.

On the other hand, there's a tradition of hardboiled detective stories where the detective never quite knows what's going on until the end, and is just pushed and pulled in different directions by different people with their own agendas. Like Philip Marlowe--smart guy, but how many times did he get knocked unconscious and wake up somewhere else?

I love that he says, "I wish we had arms." That part is FUH-KNEEEE!

It's funny because it's true.
