Transcript for the commercial[]

Sam Spade: Business was so good, I was unwinding with a game of Tiddly Winks, when this fella burst into my office.

Dexter: My name is Dexter, boy genius. I know science loves me, but someone has stolen my precious memories. (pulls out a photo of his mother)

Sam Spade: Who's she?

Dexter: She claims she's my mom.

Sam Spade: And the girl?

Dexter: (pulls out a photo of Dee Dee) Some femme fatale.

Sam Spade: And the wise guy?

Dexter: (pulls out a photo of Mandark) He says he is a friend. But I cannot be sure.

(Mandark laughs)
