“Now remember,” Coat-Check said in his usual monotone voice. “the Wizard of Z'nark is an extreme eccentric and rather prone to flights of fancy. I highly, highly suggest that you simply do your best to remain quiet and as unobtrusive as possible. Please allow me to do the talking.”
Since WizGal and WarDude were located to the rear of their glorious leader, this allowed them to exchange a knowing look. So unobtrusive and quiet was this glance that their fearless leader never even noticed it as they walked down the city streets.
“So just like when we approached the last ninety-nine people for help finding this mystical doo-dad of yours, we're expected to just sit pretty and play window dressing. I have to wonder why you even bother to keep us around.” WizGal remarked dryly.
“Because, without your presence my monologues would look silly and cause concern among the passing citizenry.” Coat-Check's response was as even-keeled as ever.
