So, you talked to the boxing guy on Boxing Day. Well, well.

Anyway, what you need to do is do what Manny wants to do: take a case.

Since Domino (the boxing guy) gets all the good cases, you'll want to steal one of his. And cases are delivered through the message tubes. Don't forget that tubes have two ends.

Spoilers die.

The pumps. We love the pumps.

Like Glottis says, you need to shake the tree down. His idea of putting rocks up there is a start but they're not nearly heavy enough. Or orange enough.

Even with enough orange it's not enough to shake the tree down. What you need is to get the pumps to shove the tree back and forth. See those four hoses on the ground? If the wheelbarrow stops on top of one, one of the pumps stops moving. You need to get the pumps synchronized to push the tree left and right.

Yes, the key strategy here is to fiddle with it until something works.

If you got three pumps moving like you want them to, you'll have to release the air pressure of the 4th a sec before the other pump on that side moves. Once you made it well, the tree will begin to shake.

Exactly. Glad it worked. That part always annoyed me.

Then I guess you got the pumps balanced before you asked for help. Kind of funny. Usually that's the thing that gives people trouble, not getting Glottis up in the tree. But, yeah, that's what it takes: balance the pumps and get Glottis up there (although it's worth it to spin Glottis before the pumps are dealt with just to hear Manny's excuses).
