Dodger:
[starting work unloading a crate] Do you sell much of this stuff? We've only had two customers and they didn't buy anything.



Captain Manzini:
Patience is a bitter vine, dear Dodger, but it bears sweet fruit.



Dodger:
Huh?



Captain Manzini:
That's from the Greek. It loses a little something in translation. Now, let's add a little sparkle to our merchandise.


[hands Dodger a feather duster]



Captain Manzini:
Funny people should call this junk, isn't it? When every piece is a diary of the human spirit.


[holds book, looks at inside cover]



Captain Manzini:
Take this, for instance. "To my darling Mary, from Herbert." This is more than a book. It's a testimony to love.



Dodger:
[holds up teddy bear] And this?



Captain Manzini:
Ah, did the child who slept with this grow up to shake the world?



Dodger:
[hands Manzini a fold-out fan] Tell me about this, Captain Manzini



Captain Manzini:
Ah, an early form of air conditioning.


[waves folded-out fan in Dodger's face]



Captain Manzini:
Also, a tool of romance. It could beckon...


[holds fan up to own face and waves toward it]



Captain Manzini:
... or rebuff.


[folds up fan, taps Dodger on the shoulder with it]



Dodger:
Did you ever get beckoned?



Captain Manzini:
Yes. I also got rebuffed. But like me, this is a relic from a simpler age, when good and bad was black-and-white. And a man could settle all his differences with one of these.


[holds up fencing sword, hands it to Dodger]



Captain Manzini:
Then some damn fool invented gunpowder, and a bigger damn fool split the atom. That's when I decided to leave mankind to it's folly and retire here. Into this world of memories

Captain Manzini:
[handing Dodger something to replace his dirty clothes] Here, try this on.



Dodger:
A dress?



Captain Manzini:
Only to western eyes. This is a dashiki, given to me by the great African leader Um-Tuh-Tuh, in gratitude for making his mother-in-law disappear.



Dodger:
You were in Africa?



Captain Manzini:
Actually, I was on my way back from Egypt. I was doing a split week, Cleveland and Cairo. But that's a long story.

Captain Manzini:
Did you get the blood of a toad and the eye of a newt?



Dodger:
Nope. The pet shop's out of unicorns, too.



Captain Manzini:
No wonder there's no magic in the world today. You can't get the ingredients.
