Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


To cut to the chase oras Pixie put it when he and Dixie were explaining their client's dilemma to Boo Boo later that day—"long story short, girl under spell, boy rescues girl, girl loses boy, boy abducted by wicked troll, what's girl to do?" and that prompted Boo Boo to scratch his head, then his chin, then his bottom, and at last say: "I don't know, why you askin me? I'm just a little bear!" and when he had left the Luncheonette, Dixie said, somewhat harshly, "little bear my ass, he's a chicken-livered, cowardly custard and I wouldn't grubstake him to find a needle in a haystack that's got planning permission for a loft conversion next door to the Hanna Barbera/Santa Barbara Xpressway," and Pixie looked impressed: "hey, that's somewhat analogous to being very similitudinous, buddy, howd'ya think of those things?" but Dixie just shrugged and said, "must be in my jeans."
