Question Ask Triggers for multiple mobs in one room

Yes, the important thing here is:

they need return 0 for everything else to allow other triggers in the room to interact

If a script does not return 0, it is considered to have handled the inquiry - others won't get checked. If it returns 0, it is considered to be "not applicable" and next trigger is checked.

Man, why couldn't I have seen this hours ago?!? As it is, this is the script I managed to come up with for my previously mentioned test mobs that seems to work. You have no idea what complicated mess I was working on before I scrapped the whole thing, twice....
Code:
* * Mulitple Mobs Ask Trigger * context %self.id% mobile_1 edgar mobile_2 jess * * if %cmd.mudcommand% == ask && %arg% if %self.name% /= %arg.car% say %actor.name% is the greatest! say My name is %self.name%! elseif edgar /= %arg.car% && edgar != %self.name.car% return 0 elseif jess /= %arg.car% && jess != %self.name.car% return 0 elseif %arg.car% && %arg.car% != %self.name.car% return 0 end elseif %cmd.mudcommand% == ask && !%arg% return 0 else return 0 end

I was going to share earlier, but I didn't have a chance to test it until after work so I didn't know if it would work or not. Besides, I had some bugs I had to work out due to the odd misype. Also, I can't seem to get strings assigned to variables to work properly. Maybe someone can help with that?

Addendum:

I've already reduced it down to the following:
Code:
* * Mulitple Mobs Ask Trigger * * if %cmd.mudcommand% == ask && %arg% if %self.name.car% /= %arg.car% say %actor.name% is the greatest! say My name is %self.name%! elseif %self.name.car% != %arg.car% return 0 end else return 0 end
