    Anyway, Sam continues to give the ship migraines.
    I don't remember where it gets said, but I am fairly certain that Helix was sent by the Mayor to spy on Sam and Sam convinced him that a life of petty crime was better. I think Sam would describe it as "liberating", and would be pleasantly surprised that that term already has usage for stealing from your opponents.

    Well, his reasoning is valid.
    Utterly reprehensible and showing an utter disregard for sapient lifeforms, but valid.
    I shall keep it in mind for the next time someone brings up that exercise.

    It's kind of the opposite of the situation with Doctor Bowman where Florence gave the 'wrong' answer that was actually right.

    And Florence again shows she could be an apprentice to Vetinari.

    I've said it before, I'll probably say it again, Florence really has Sam's number.

    Unfortunately, Sam doesn't have the lookup number for Sqid mythology.

    Given what we've seen of Sam, the first lesson is a bit stating the obvious.

    The battle is not to the strong, nor the race to the swift.

    Put another way, Sam is still teaching.

    Just so long as we don't see too much of the sqid's anatomy. I understand it drives men mad.

    Didn't their „cuteness” trigger the human „feeding reflex”?

    And they are all delusional. After all, what better way to respect someone than to steal from them?

    Hey, keep your Terra-centric attitude to yourself.

    You know, someone should tell Sam to sell books with those stories.
    There's loads of money in heist-comedy.

    No fun in that. Sam's always cared more about stealing money than making or having it.
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    Exactly. Sam sells the stories, other people make money off them and he steals it.

    Well, if this is an origin/how-they-met scenario, they need to start with Shemp for his Soup to Nuts appearance, and then he can be replaced for a dozen years or so.

    I'm guessing it'll be Shemp, actually. Curly doesn't make sense to people with no hair to be snide about the lack thereof.

    If they're going for an exact match, they'd have to bring in a Ted Healy analog, which doesn't appear to be happening. And they seem to be doing something with hairstyles -- Mho has Moe's bowl-cut and Lairee has something that might be a hairstyle.

    Taking bets on that Sam is making this up as he goes, and stole the plot directly from the obvious inspiration?

    If cricket and gin & tonics are universal constants, I see no reason the Stooges can't be as well.

    Isn't making stuff up as you go based on some blatantly stolen inspiration a universal storytelling tradition?

    It's also a reference to the original Curly's accent in the Stooge shorts- "Soitenly!"
