I love that Pyrite Parrot :)
Even though all that Pyrite Parrot does is repeat "It's me, Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate!", I felt kinda bad when he got melted in Episode 2, only to be relieved when he came back at the end.
I think it's a testament to the quality writing that I can become attached to an inanimate object with just one line in the whole series.
Kudos, TTG. Here's hoping the Parrot makes it all the way through!
