After his taxi ride, the Prisoner, on the morning of his arrival, goes into the General Store to purchase a map of the area. The Shopkeeper-No.19 is busy serving a customer, to whom he is speaking in some incomprehensible language. The moment the Shopkeeper see's his next customer, he immediately stops taking in a foreign language, and starts speaking to the woman in English "Would you help yourself to a pineapple madam," Why? Does he think his next customer will understand what he's saying, or is it for the Prisoner's benefit that he suddenly speaks English? And what language might it be? It's certainly not French, it might very well be some made up jibberish made to sound like a language.
