Scampi: Personally, I’m not concerned with whether we exist or not.
Scampi: I am concerned with other features.
Scampi: What are you, a parakeet?
Scampi: Ho ho. Of course not. The very idea. It’s absurd.
Scampi: The wind, it howls.
Peter: This has been observed. Over time.
Scampi: Overtime! The good guys win it all!
Peter: I do not follow sports.
Scampi: That’s not what they say in England.
Scampi: They call it sport. Singular.
Peter: Singular, indeed.
Scampi: I don’t even believe we have any feelings.
Scampi: Any of us. Why should we?
Peter: As in, what practical use do they serve?
Scampi: You Darwinian monster.
Peter: Pardon me?
Scampi: I just mean, why should we, why shouldn’t we? It’s highly uninteresting.
Peter: I see. Not to pry, but what is interesting?
Scampi: Oh, you know.
Peter: Enlighten me.
Scampi: Everything else. Pretty much.
Peter: Such as?
Scampi: Mollusks. Typography. That sort of thing.
Peter: Thank you for clearing up this issue.
Scampi: I am at your service. As per usual.
Scampi: This exists, that exists. I am unconcerned with these questions.
Peter: Yes, I can see that.
Scampi [eagerly]: Can you?
Peter: By the way you keep harping on them.
Scampi: Whoa, grumpiness.
Peter: I am not grumpy.
Scampi: Hokay. Step away from de vehicle.
Peter: What are you talking about?
Scampi: Oh, you know me. Just twiddling my opposable thumbs.
SCAMPI REFLECTS ON THE PAWS BEFORE HER.
Scampi: Opposable thumbs, hey? This is pretty nice.
Peter: PACES ANGRILY.
Scampi: Yo, what’s up, doc?
Peter: I am stretching my legs.
Scampi: I am stretching my synapses. Hey, remember the apple orchard?
Scampi: Not at all?
Peter: Why do you ask?
Scampi: Just wondering.
Scampi: Have you noticed that we’re surrounded by natural beauty?
Peter: I have.
Peter: Well what?
Scampi: What do you think of that?
Peter: I think it’s fine.
Scampi: It certainly is. Roly poly mammals, craggy cliffs. What more could you want?
Peter: I haven’t seen any cliffs.
Scampi: Of course you have.
Peter: I have not. Not recently.
Scampi: Perhaps you should look up.
Peter: Not today.
Scampi: Why not? Scared?
Peter: Not today.
Scampi: Tomorrow they may be gone.
