I'm stuck fairly early on. I picked up the cell phone after Homestar left it and called everybody, getting Marzipan to leave her house twice. Problem is that I did it *before* going to her place and triggering any dialogue about her hedge trimmers (per the walkthrough). She's not anywhere on the map (ringing the doorbell yields nothing) and all I get when I call is a resigned "I'm on my way."
Is there an alternate solution to this puzzle, or do I just have to restart and make sure I don't call until after going to her place?
