The Only Thing About Him is the Way That He Walks

In Whitey's Grove, you encounter a white guy. He appears to be upset.

"What's wrong?" you ask him.

"I can't dance," he whimpers. "Can you help me out?"

"Hey, it's all right," you tell the guy. "Let's solve this problem the way we solve all of our problems -- let's go get drunk!"

"O... okay," he sputters. "I heard there was a wine tasting going on today. Let's check it out."

You follow him deeper into the Grove, where you encounter something very disturbing. A group of people is sitting around a table laden with wine. Instead of drinking the wine, however, they repeatedly take sips and then spit them into a bucket. Between sips, they use words that are too pretentious for you to understand, and laugh smugly.

Enraged by this waste of perfectly good alcohol, you spring into action. Which is to say that you hit the people until they leave, and then take the remaining wine.

"Sorry, man, can't help you," you say, as you sneak around behind the guy and deftly rifle (and pistol) through his pockets.

Turns out to have been a waste of time, though, as all he had was a couple of NASCAR ticket stubs and this creepy wig.

  • The name of this adventure is a reference to the Genesis song "I Can't Dance", in which the chorus begins, "I can't dance, I can't talk / the only thing about me is the way that I walk."
  • The text of the adventure is possibly also a reference to the stereotype that white people can't dance.
  • "...the way we solve all of our problems -- let's go get drunk!" is a reference to a series of sketches on Saturday Night Live, in which a character played by Mike Myers ran a shop called "All Things Scottish". In one sketch, Patrick Stewart plays a Scottish Therapist, who states that they will handle his anger issues "the way we handle all our problems, by getting bloody pissed (drunk)!"
  • "Whoah. I know the Funky Chicken." is a reference to a similar line Keanu Reeves says in The Matrix.
  • Mullet hairstyles and a predilection for NASCAR racing events are associated with working-class white Americans.
