Humbug:
Could you show us the biggest number there is? That will give him something to figure out.



Mathmegician:
Very well, Sir Humbug. What's the biggest number you can think of?



Humbug:
9,999,999,000,999 and... nine tenths!



Mathmegician:
Very good. Now add one to it.



Humbug:
Add one?



Mathmegician:
Now, add one to that. Add one again. Add one again. Add one again. Add one again.



Milo:
But he'd never be able to stop that way.



Mathmegician:
Never, for the number you hope for is always at least one higher than the one you had before, and that's so large that if you started saying it yesterday, you wouldn't stop until tomorrow.

Senses Taker:
Names! I must have your names before you can proceed!



Milo:
Well, uh, this is the Humbug.



Senses Taker:
Humbug.



Milo:
This is Tock.



Senses Taker:
Tock.



Milo:
And my name is Milo. Now can we go?



Senses Taker:
Milo. Ooh, I haven't had an M in ages. Now then, if you will just tell me when you were born, where you were born, why you were born, how old you are, how old you were then, what grade you're in, your shoe size, shirt size, collar size, hat size, and the names and bank references of six people who can verify this information! Then you can go.



Milo:
What do you need all this for? We're in a hurry.



Senses Taker:
I'm the official Senses Taker! I must have this information before I take your senses! So, now then, if you will fill out in triplicate your height, your weight, how many ice cream cones you eat in a week, how many you don't eat in a week...



Milo:
We can't waste the time! We've got to get to the Castle in the Air!



Senses Taker:
That does it! Now, I'm going to take your sense of duty, your sense of proportion, and especially your sense of direction!



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Milo, the bottle of laughter! Use this bottle of laughter I got from Doctor Discord! He can't take away our sense of humor!

Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
You must forgive me, but you see, it's traditional for watch dogs to be ferocious.



Milo:
I thought you were just great, but are you sure it's alright to leave those lathargians back there alone?



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Oh, I don't just watch lathargians. I watch boys too. And right now, I'd say you needed a watch dog. And anyway, I just love automobile rides!



Milo:
Very pleased to have you along. My name is Milo.



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Milo? That's a strange name for a boy. My name is Tock.



Milo:
Isn't that kind of a strange name for a dog?



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Oh, no. How many names can you give a watch dog? Actually, my name is Tick Tock, but my friends call me Tock.



Milo:
May I call you Tock? It's about time I had a friend.



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
It's about time? But time is your friend!
