As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Frown searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "frown box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "frown 2.box" for the latter.

Frown can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Frown does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Frown displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "frown disapprovingly", "frown angrily,", and so on. You can also "frown 18373649" or "frown toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
