DescriptionEdit

Jacob and Evie once more met with Alexander Graham Bell again, who had produced an incapacitating bomb for them.

DialogueEdit

  • Bell: Argh! Oh, Jacob, Evie, it's you. Thank goodness.
  • Evie: Experimenting, are we, Aleck?
  • Bell: Correct.
  • Jacob: And looking a bit frazzled.
  • Bell: Nerves. It's those great oafs Starrick keeps sending 'round to coax me. He is offering a ridiculous amount of money.
  • Jacob: Aleck, you're not thinking of jumping ship, are you?
  • Bell: Never! I've been working on something in case they get too insistent. It's meant to stun an assailant, should the need arise.

Bell showed the twins a bomb.

  • Evie: Are you certain that it works?
  • Bell: Not as such. I've made three of them with varying degrees of acidity and whatnot. One must be the right formula.
  • Jacob: Let's find some Starrick lackeys to target then, shall we?
  • Bell: Speaking of Starrick, he is still transmitting false information.
  • Evie: We could simply destroy his transmitters...
  • Bell: His company's too well guarded. The bombs will help, but it would be awkward to produce bombs that potentially do not stun...

Two of Starrick's thugs passed outside the laboratory.

  • Bell: Oh- Wait a minute, looks like opportunity has come knocking. Oh, dear. They never looked so angry before.

Jacob prepared to attack the thugs.

  • Jacob: Stand clear, Aleck.
  • Bell: Let us instead play a little linguistic game with them. Um, take the bombs and climb onto the roof. When I say the name of a-a fruit, toss one near the thugs.
  • Evie: Right, then.
  • Bell: Oh, uh, wait! Uh, I nearly forgot...

Bell gave Jacob and Evie a pair of soles.

  • Bell: Slip these into your boots and you will henceforth be immune to all voltaic discharge! I think.

As Bell faced the thugs outside, Jacob or Evie climbed onto a nearby rooftop.

  • Bell: Good day, gentlemen. Uh, I would ask you in for tea, but I'm afraid I'm running rather late...
  • Bill: Enough of the niceties. We've come to smash your place up, in't we, Baz?
  • Baz: You've got one of them tele-whatsit in there, ain't ya? And you've been reading messages from the Starrick Company?
  • Bell: That is as untrue as the notion that the Starrick Telegraph Company is emitting impartial information, sir.
  • Baz: Come again?
  • Bell: Your employer's promises are nothing but hot air. And his operations are about to turn... Pear-shaped!

Jacob or Evie threw one of the bombs at the thugs, which only emitted a cloud of gas.

  • Bill: Whatcha going on about air and pears for?
  • Baz: Aw, I don't alf feel rough...
  • Bill: That's disgusting... Uh!

The thugs threw up.

  • Bill: Gawd blimey...
  • Bell: Oh, kids, eh! Those playful young scamps get everywhere...

As the thugs moved closer to Bell's laboratory, he and Jacob or Evie followed them.

  • Bill: Listen up, Bell, or I'll thump you till your ears are ringing.
  • Bell: Oh, a pun. Your wordplay delights me! And to think I worried you had the mental capacity of a dollop of donkey's apples.

Jacob or Evie threw another bomb, which also emitted a cloud of gas.

  • Baz: Apples?
  • Bill: I think he's trying to be funny.
  • Baz: Pwah! You dropped another one, Bill, you little sod...
  • Bill: Ain't me, Baz. Gor blimey, it's got me froat...
  • Bell: Oh, those rascals throwing stink bombs again. It happens all the time around here.

The thugs moved closer to Bell, who walked backwards.

  • Baz: Right, tell us where you keep that tele-whatsit. I'll count to three.
  • Bell: Three? Well, well, let's see how far you get!
  • Baz: One...
  • Bell: Do you really think I would keep it here? Do you see a cable? A telegraph without a cable is about as useful as a bell without a clapper.
  • Baz: I'll give you a bleedin' clapper!
  • Bell: Well, bless my boots, you're as purple as... a plum!
  • Baz: A plum?

Jacob or Evie incapacitated the thugs with the last bomb, which functioned correctly as a voltaic bomb.

  • Jacob: Bravo, Aleck!
  • Bell: Thanks to you, Jacob. Your mere presence gave me courage and resolve I never knew I had. I found myself rather witty, too.
  • Jacob: Well... make some more bombs and let's sort out Starrick's propaganda machine, shall we?

If Evie had protected Bell, their interaction would be different.

  • Evie: Good show, Aleck!
  • Bell: Thanks to you, Evie. Your mere presence gave me courage and resolve I never knew I had.
  • Evie: I'm glad I could help. Now it's time to shut down Starrick's Empire of Propaganda.
  • Bell: Come on, we haven't got all day!

Jacob or Evie took the reins to Bell's carriage, driving to the telegraph station.

  • Bell: The longer we can keep Starrick from spewing out false information, the more we can awaken the people with the truth about his operations.
  • Jacob: Let's get to it, then.
  • Bell: Would you believe, my mother says there are still some wives in her street that swear by that Soothing Syrup. So I took it upon myself to tell her neighbors the truth about the obnoxious draught.
  • Jacob: Good on you, Aleck, but you can't go knocking on everyone's door.
  • Bell: No... I wasn't always welcome... which shows how false information can be as difficult to stamp out as fishwives' profanities at Billingsgate.

Jacob laughed.

  • Jacob: Or rats in the sewers.
  • Bell: But if we can eradicate the source that continually feeds such detrimental trash, then little by little, the truth will take the upper hand and the sham will be flushed out.
  • Jacob: Let's crack on, then. Here we are!
  • Bell: We will have to get in without being detected, mind.
  • Jacob: While I stun them, you sneak inside.
  • Bell: I shall destroy not one, but three parts of the transmitter. He'll be as good as dancing before a public toilet without a penny!

If Evie drove with Bell, their interaction would be different.

  • Bell: The longer we can keep Starrick from spewing out false information, the more we can awaken the people with the truth about his operations.
  • Evie: I agree. The sooner we can get there, the quicker we can act.
  • Bell: Would you believe, my mother says there are still some wives in her street that swear by that Soothing Syrup. So I took it upon myself to tell her neighbors the truth about the obnoxious draught.
  • Evie: That's good, Aleck, but you can't go 'round to every household in London town.
  • Bell: No... I wasn't always welcome... which shows how false information can be as difficult to stamp out as fishwives' profanities at Billingsgate.
  • Evie: Or vermin at Smithfield.
  • Bell: But if we can eradicate the source that continually feeds such detrimental trash, then little by little, the truth will take the upper hand and the sham will be flushed out.
  • Evie: That's why we're here.
  • Bell: We will have to get in without being detected, mind.
  • Evie: I shall stun them while you get inside.
  • Bell: I shall destroy not one, but three parts of the transmitter. He'll be as good as dancing before a public toilet without a penny!

They arrived at the telegraph station, where one of the twins eliminated the guards, allowing Bell to sabotage the parts of the transmitter.

  • Bell: What a beautiful machine. A pity, it's been soiled by corrupt minds! Oh, well. I hope the guards don't come patrolling.

Jacob or Evie protected Bell from the guards.

  • Bell: I say, this is becoming rather perilous to say the least!
    Golly gosh, I felt that!
    Jolly close shave, that!

Bell destroyed the first part of the transmitter.

  • Bell: Ha! Got you, you little bugger! We'll have to cross over here.

Bell destroyed the second part of the transmitter.

  • Bell: A tad fiddly, that one, but I've pulled it as well as a dentist pulls a rotten tooth! There.
  • Jacob: Move on to the next part, Aleck.

Evie would react differently.

  • Evie: Move faster, if you can.

Bell destroyed the last part of the transmitter, and he and the twins returned to the former's laboratory.

  • Bell: My dears, Jacob, Evie, thanks are once again in order, for supporting what is most dear to me and to our cause. Freedom of speech.
  • Evie: It's a blessing that you employ your genius for the common good, Aleck.
  • Jacob: However, I suggest you vacate your workshop.
  • Bell: No need, not now, you've given me sacksful of courage. And, besides, what with my little devices, I have all the protection I need. Uh, should you find yourselves with a moment to spare, do drop by!

Jacob and Evie cheerfully left.

OutcomeEdit

After testing Bell's new voltaic bombs, the twins helped him destroy Starrick's telegraph transmitter.
