Sam & Max text-adventure, engine done: now we need content

I'm still sick and in bed, so I've got a little too much time on my hands and you know the saying about idle hands.
I wanted to see if I could write a little text adventure featuring Sam and Max, maybe incorporating some of the speculations about episode 2. The engine was done in an evening and while the code is a mess, at least it works (in Firefox 3.6: sorry for users of other browsers, but this uses some Javascript 1.8 features as well as DOM storage for autosaving) and is very easy to develop content for. Basically, there's just a demo room so far, but if we can come up with a decent story and some good lines I think it could make a nice little toy while we're waiting for episode 2.

The game:

The demo data file:

So, any ideas?
