Don't you hate it when you get a greasy spot in your basement, and you hire a guy to clean it up, and the chemicals he uses end up leaving a Slime Tube in your floor? Happens to me all the time. Here's what you do - you get in there, start blasting away at the Slime with a weapon, spell, whatever's handy. Now, you're going to get Coated in Slime as you go, just wipe yourself off and keep going. As you go, you'll find all the marbles and clothes that your kids lost down there.
Now, this is going to take a long time, and that may make you angry. So get angry! Slime Hates It when you get angry! The angrier you are, the faster you'll clean, and the more toys and unicycles you'll find. Once you hit the bottom, take out the brains behind this operation, and if you were fast (and angry) enough, you'll have found a new companion.
Get your friends to help you out with this. Tell them you'll bring the food and booze, let them tickle the uvula (if you know what I mean), whatever it takes. Then when you're all done, make them put away the cleaning supplies so you'll be ready the next time this happens.
