Yes, I know, it's a horrible old cliche - the conflicted character with the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other, agonising over a morally-complex issue. But the good thing about horrible old cliches is, you can freely subvert them for extra comedic effect: in this case, Peter being Peter, his battle of wills has turned out to be good vs. evil vs..... utterly, utterly random. There's got to be more varieties of those mind-goblins in the psychological aether than just the standard, traditional diametrically-opposed pair, right? We just don't see them in most cases because not everybody is as.... special as Peter is known to be. Maurice's joyful cry of 'Rumba rumba snort rip!', in case you're interested, comes from an old-school Garfield comic; exclaimed by the fat cat himself, if memory serves, during the proceedings of a New Years party. It's total bizarro-ness stuck with me, and seemed only appropriate for the bizarro-proclomations of our pal Maurice. So there you go.
