1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


This is the third game in the first season of episodic Sam and Max adventures
from Telltale. A mole that was sent to investigate the Toy Mafia in town has
disappeared, and Sam and Max are ordered by the commissioner to find out what
has happened to him. There are plenty of returning characters here like Sybil,
Johnny Two Teeth and Bosco (with a new disguise and an even higher fee for an
important item) that are all fun to talk to as usual, and the new characters
like Leonard and the Toy Mafia are entertaining as well. Though the episode is
good, it doesn't seem as long or as difficult as the two previous episodes.

Enter Sybil's shop and get the coffee cup on her table. Exit the shop and enter
the office to see that Leonard from the casino is trying to sell the meatball
sandwich to Jimmy. Select Max and say "Hey, is that a cap gun?" to start the
Yo' Mama insults. Select an opening line and then choose the correct response.

"Yo' Mama's so fat..."      : "She has more folds than an origami accordion!"
"Yo' Mama's so radiant..."  : "If she fell in nuclear waste, no one would
                               notice!"
"Yo' Mama's so perky..."    : "The only time she's low is at a limbo contest!"
"Yo' Mama's so thrifty..."  : "She brings coupons to the penny arcade!"
"Yo' Mama's so vulgar..."   : "Her mouth would make a longshoreman blush!"
"Yo' Mama's so punctual..." : "She showed up early for her own funeral!"

After selecting five of the correct responses, Leonard says that he hid the

doesn't work on Sam and Max, but they decide to act in order to trick Harry the
mole. He asks Sam to shoot Max, so shoot him with the cap gun. Walk to the left
