Indexer Notes

Great Bit: One of Sam's prized possessions, locked safely in his ship's cabin, is "...an authentic photo of [Sam] shaking hands with Captain Hook... talk about painful experiences!"

Villain Gunther Frimp steals the photo, remarking: "It'll be worth TWO BITS at the next Pirates' Convention in Atlantic City!"
