Opting for his own take on things, he then starts to shout questions at Brook about what happened to him and the ship, only to be interrupted by Luffy, who much to the shock of everybody else, asks Brook to join his crew. She, of course, denies this and knocks Brook to the floor. Sanji kicks the zombie holding Nami away and for a moment thinks he rescued a goddess instead.

He also remembers how they went from a band, to a quartet, a trio, a duet, and finally a solo as Brook finally died remembering Laboon. The message it wants to imply is that Absalom is the one that leaked the information about the pirate alliance Kidd is forming. Moriah continues to take this with indifference while Brook asks to fight along side the crew.
