Yep! I carried him all around the house :D
I didn't, but in my second playthrough with audio-commentary I did go back to the entrance to get him when I learned where its rightful place was. :)
I'm afraid I won't be able to post anything for a good while (you know, Christmas and all that). If anybody wants to take my turn, be my guest. If not, I'll try to post something much later today.
