# T3: TCommandTopic and the GiveToAction

For some reason, TCommandTopic (defined in the TCommand extension) is not working with the GiveToAction. It’s working with other actions. This, for instance:

```+ TCommandTopic @GiveToAction matchDobj = [binoculars] matchIobj = [me] topicResponse = "Testing...." ;```
The NPC is, in fact, carrying the binoculars. But the output is, “Barbara does not respond.”

Wassup? Dunno. Suggestions?

I suspect the problem here is that BARBARA, GIVE ME THE BINOCULARS gets translated to ASK BARBARA FOR BINOCULARS (and so never triggers the TCommandTopic).
