(message: Alexander hears someone coming.) (Gnomes: Five fierce guards of the isle we be! ''Watch for a foreign man,'' said he! With ears and nose, tongue, hands, and eyes. Its nature cannot be disguised. If man it be, then man it dies!) (Gnomes: Old Bill Batter, never fatter, vision can resolve this matter. Look you now and end this chatter!) (Bill peers at Alexander.) (He opens his eyes wide...) (...looks Alexander up...) (...and down...) (...and bulges his eyes in surprise.)

(wait too long to give an item)

(Bill Batter: Of all the senses, eyes are best! A man, I say, and hang the rest!)

(give the gnome the wrong item)

(message: Alexander holds the item out for the gnome with the enormous eyes.) (Bill Batter: My eyes cannot distracted be! A MAN I see, and so say me!)

(Gnomes: A man, a man, so say our eyes! A man he be, a man he dies!) (The gnomes swing Alexander by the arms and legs...) (...up...) (...out...) (...around...) (...and tossed through the air. ) (He goes flying out to the ocean...) (...and lands in the water...) (...with a splash.) (message: The gnomes toss Alexander too far out into the sea for him to get his footing! The currents drag him under!) (Alexander is lost under the waves.) (message: Guess those gnomes couldn't reach a con-SENSES!)
