SCUMM: Re-enable lines in DOTT
|Reported by:||GermanTribun||Owned by:|

In DOTT, there are several lines that are in the MONSTER.SOU but can't be accessed in normal gameplay due to code problems. While the lines with Dr. Fred after getting the diamond are fixed, there are some more.
Is it possible to repair those lines so that they appear again (and hopefully they were also translated for other languages)?
Quick overview of those that I think are usable:
In the scene when Franklin wants to test his new kite, he actually has a second reaction to Hoagie botching the start of the kite, which is never called upon. Perhaps the script can be modified so that his reactions alternate? Also, the script is overly restrictive and doesn't allow Hoagie to look at the kite and notice a pocket, thus preventing the player from getting a good hint. Perhaps the action of looking at it can be allowed?
Hoagie has special lines for trying to connect an empty battery or a random item. However, due to later scripting to make sure the Chon-o-John only sends items, these lines are not heard and the plug only gives the generic answer. Can the conditions for the special lines instead refer to the plug?
The fire in the fireplace has a code bug that prevents Hogie from trying to interact with it properly, thus also never giving his special answer.
