At the return of The Director, Terrence manages to sit up and lean against a table leg. No good showing weakness; he tries to look healthy. "I'm sure he'll be up in no time. I'm much better myself!" He isn't. "I might go for a jog around the grounds to loosen up." He attempts to stand which causes him to black out for a few seconds. "Or maybe just a drink of water if there's any about that hasn't been poisoned. Is that a thing here? Unpoisoned food and drink?"
Del brings a cup of water to Terrence. "Drink some water, you need it." She also puts a cold wet rag to his forehead.
"You're too kind. Just a sip." Terrence goes to drink from the glass, but ends up vomiting into the vessel instead with an exaggerated noise.
Del gets another wet rag with an unseen magic hand. The invisible hand starts to clean the vomit off of Terrence.
"Ah many thanks, many thanks! As you can see, I'm quite a bit better. I think I recognize you from dinner." Terrence is talking to the mop bucket.
Flynn shakes his head, stuck somewhere between pity and amusement. "I can't help but wonder if I would be in the same state if I had actually finished that dessert he put in front of me earlier." He squats down in front of the grossly covered young man. He snaps his fingers twice in front of Terrence's nose, SNAP SNAP. "Keep going until you have all of that out of your system. Focus on the bucket. As appalling as you seem to be, this is a terrible fate for anyone." Satisfied that he managed some kind of encouragement for the distasteful man, he rises.
"Good heavens, Little Terry. That mop just spoke to me! It sounded just like The Director!"
The puppet version of Terrence, Little Terry, rises up next to Terrence."What did he say, Terrence?"
"He told me to go on, Little Terry. He wants me to finish the scene!"
"Will it be a death scene, Terrence?"
"I believe it will, Little Terry. I believe it will."
