As you can tell by the amount of time I spent today, I actually did very little. This will definitely be the last of these half-hour minimum days, though, so I have optimism I can reunite everyone and finish all the side-quests before Day 24.
As for today, I ran through the caves again and grabbed the treasure under Figaro Castle before facing the Tentacles, this time, equipping both Celes and Sabin with RunningShoes and giving each a Relic which protected against poison. I really didn't bother about optimal tactics as between the immunity to poison and the inherent Haste status, the battle, once nightmarish, became easy with those two minor changes. The Tentacles were defeated and I grabbed the Soul Sabre from the back room before returning upstairs. Soon Figaro was up and running, and soon, I was on my way to Kohlingen.
Once in Kohlingen I looked around town and talked to various citizens while window shopping in town (I spent most of my money earlier in Figaro Castle with the regal discount on Tinctures.) before I talked to Setzer, and after a moment of self-pity, he came to his senses and joined the party. I walked over to the tomb, saved, and quit.
