p120 - Pepper's House/Front Steps (Scroller w/130)
1) Pepper and Lockjaw Playing (Act I:B):
Pepper and Lockjaw are on the porch. Pepper is petting Lockjaw. There is a microphone lying on the stairs. A gross gob of bubble gum is stuck to one of the steps. Flash Pepper's icon bar. Turn over control to player. HAND on MICROPHONE shows Pepper picking up the Microphone, thereby activating the TALK icon. Pepper looks right at the player and talks into the Microphone, introducing herself. NOTE: Lockjaw won't bite onto his harness until Pepper has picked up the Microphone and given Lockjaw Water.
2) Fixing the Drainpipe (Act I:B):
HAND on DRAINPIPE shows Pepper picking it up. It goes into inventory. HAND on BUBBLE GUM shows Pepper walking over to the gum. She steps on it, and it sticks to the bottom of her shoe. Pepper pulls it off with a disgusted comment, and it stretches nastily. NOTE: Every time Pepper walks over the gum before picking it up, she will stick to the spot for a moment. GUM on PEPPER gets Pepper turning to the player with a disgusted 'No way! GUM on LOCKJAW shows Pepper tossing Lockjaw the gum. He catches it and chews it with great enthusiasm. Lockjaw automatically spits the soft gum out at Pepper. It arcs through the air, and she catches it. Pepper must use the SOFT GUM on the DRAINPIPE SECTION in Inventory, OR the SOFT GUM on the DRAINPIPE on the wall. DRAINPIPE SECTION on DRAINPIPE (After Gum has been attached) shows Pepper sticking the two sections together. The Drainpipe Section bangs against the house, triggering the Pepper's Parents cartoon.
3) Pepper's Parents Cartoon (Act I:C):
Pepper has just attached the Drainpipe, and it banged on the wall. From somewhere up above, a loud banging commences, accompanied by a Star Trek style computer controlled screen shake. This causes the windowshade in the big front window to roll up, revealing the bathrobed silhouettes of Pepper's Parents. Pepper's parents are in the midst of an argument. Finally Pepper's mom reaches out and pulls the windowshade down.
4) Trying to Climb the Drain Pipe (Act I:B):
HAND on repaired DRAINPIPE before Lockjaw gets his HARNESS shows Pepper wrapping herself around it and starting to shinny up it. Lockjaw grabs onto her pants leg and won't let go. She cannot climb any higher. WALK or HAND anywhere else shows Pepper climbing down.
5) Meeting Mrs. O'Brien for the First Time (Act I:B):
NOTE: This is just for fun, and to give Pepper a clue. This is no longer a puzzle. There are two ways to trigger Mrs. O'Brien's sticking her head out the window; try to climb the drainpipe, or pick one of her flowers. HAND on FLOWER shows Pepper walking toward the flowerbed. Lockjaw joins her. As soon as they get there, Lockjaw starts digging in the flowerbed (flowers and dirt flying) and Pepper reaches for a flower. The window over the flowers slams open, and Mrs. O'Brien sticks her head out and yells at Pepper. She looks very angry and cranky. She will wait for a few moments, giving the player time to talk to her. If they don't, or after the conversation, she will slam the window shut. She will come out every time the player does HAND on FLOWER. Once Pepper comes down from the drainpipe because Lockjaw won't let her climb it, Mrs. O'Brien sticks her head out the window and yells at Pepper. She will give Pepper a clue about the harness.
6) Filling Lockjaw's Water Dish (Act I:B):
HAND on WATER VALVE shows Pepper turning on the valve and filling the dish. Lockjaw goes over and drinks up all the water, drooling and slobbering in a doggy fashion. NOTE: If the player does this twice, Lockjaw will drink again, then he will go lift his leg on the tree. NOTE: Lockjaw won't use the dog harness until he's had water at least once.
7) Other Actions (Act I:B):
HAND on LOCKJAW shows Pepper petting him. Lockjaw goes nuts, rolling around in doggie ecstasy. HAND on FRONT DOOR shows Pepper walking to the door and grabbing the knob. Lockjaw whines and looks pitiful. Pepper tells him he can't come in. Lockjaw starts crying. Pepper agrees to stay out with him.
8) Easter Eggs (Act I:B):
LOOK on the HOLES IN THE FLOWERBED shows a hedgehog pop up and look around. Lockjaw's hackles pop up, and he dives at the hedgehog. Lockjaw gets stuck in the hole, with his stubby little back legs waving around. The hedgehog pops out of another hole and gives Lockjaw a raspberry. Rarely, random things could pop up out of the holes, such as a miner, a dinosaur, Elvis, etc.
9) Getting Lockjaw's Harness
After the Pepper's Parents cartoon, Pepper tells Lockjaw that they should climb up and see what Uncle Fred is up to. If she tries to do it without the harness, Lockjaw won't let her (he grabs her pants). After he has done that, Pepper asks him what he's done with his harness. Flash Lockjaw's icon bar. He must to PAW on FLOWERBED. This causes him to dig the harness out. As he does, Mrs. O pops out to yell at them. She goes back in. HAND on HARNESS causes Pepper to pick it up.
10) Climbing the Drainpipe to the Attic (Act I:D):
Use DOG HARNESS on LOCKJAW after trying to climb the drainpipe but before giving Lockjaw Water and/or picking up the MICROPHONE- Lockjaw shakes his head NO. Use DOG HARNESS on LOCKJAW with all conditions met shows Pepper calling Lockjaw, holding up the harness. Lockjaw looks at the player and jerks his head toward Pepper as if to say 'get this'. Pepper puts her hands on her hips and asks if Lockjaw wants to stay here. Lockjaws shakes his head no, growling uh-uh. Lockjaw walks over to her slowly, dragging his paws. Pepper tries to put the harness over his head, but he bites down on the harness and won't let go. Pepper fastens the end of the harness around her waist, commenting about what a weird dog Lockjaw is. Lockjaw goes stiff. Pepper starts to climb the drainpipe. Lockjaw is dangling from the leash, swinging below her like a pendulum. They climb up and out of this screen, and scroll into the Attic Window screen.

Ben gives Pepper a Chocolate bar, and she bites it, then dissolves (or whatever she does) back into 1764.
13) Pepper reappearing after time jump 3 (Act VII:F).
Time Ad-To Pics
Because the player will see Ben's house in 1764 and 1785, the passage of time should be evident. The primary indicator should be the Tree. (The house too, if possible).
1764 - Tree
The tree should be big, but not quite a mature tree.
1764 - House
The house should be in excellent repair. Ben is very prosperous at this point.
1785 - Tree
The tree should be bigger and wider--generally older looking.
1785 - House
The house should be in less-than-perfect shape. Maybe the paint is peeling a little, and the rain gutter is cracked. It's older, and Ben is no longer strong enough to work on it.

TEETH on ANY OBJECT gets Lockjaw chewing it. GENERIC CHEW OVERLAYS can be used to show the damage he's done. NOTE: It wouldn't be practical to use these overlays on EVERYTHING.

Lockjaw licks his chops and grins. Loop 4. PAW on CHEST shows Lockjaw scratching it (SCRATCH OVERLAYS), but being unable to open it. Loop 5. TEETH on CHEST shows Lockjaw begin to gnaw at the chest. (This could be some silly sawdust-flying, buzzsaw-dog-from-Hell animation. If Lockjaw had the bone in his mouth, he will spit it out before chewing the chest.) Loop 6. Lockjaw has chewed a big hole in the chest. Two objects fall out of it--a box of Strawberry Truffles, and a Key on a silk ribbon. Loop 7. TEETH on STRAWBERRY TRUFFLES shows Lockjaw wildly wolfing them down, papers flying. When he finishes he has a big pink ring around his mouth like lipstick.

Lockjaw's hackles rise all over his back. Loop 8. Ima coos at Lockjaw some more, then gives him a big, sloppy kiss on the nose. Loop 9. Ima drops Lockjaw on the floor. Loop 10. Lockjaw shakes himself and snorts disgustedly. Loop 11. As Ima flounces out, the Butler walks in with a large basin of steaming water. The basin and the towels over his arm are labeled 'Fluffy'. Loop 12. Lockjaw growls and the Butler eyes him nervously and sets the basin down on the floor.

Loop 1. Fade back in to the Attic inset. Pepper is still in the attic, looking around curiously. Loop 2. The pigeon flies onscreen. It lands on the windowsill. Loop 3. The pigeon drops the letter on the windowsill. Loop 4. The pigeon flies to the lightening rod, perches on it, and repeatedly taps the bell, thus ringing it.
NOTE: Pepper can leave the attic (without taking the letter) as soon as the pigeon drops the letter and rings the bell. If she comes back, the letter will still be there, and the pigeon will still be ringing the bell. He only leaves after she has taken the letter.
7) Pepper takes the Letter (Act V:D):
Loop 1. If Pepper puts her HAND on the LETTER, show her reaching out and taking the letter. Loop 2. The pigeon stops ringing the bell and flies away.
