Transcript

Ash Gets Bumped

  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Ash Ketchum walks along his route with Suzy and Pietra. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Ash coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Ash was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Alex O'Connell was waiting, too.
  • Alex: Hurry up, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Called Alex when the signal dropped.
  • Alex: If you're late, Steven might get a new character to replace you.
  • Ash: He would never do that!
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash, but he was worried. Next day, Ash hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Ash saw some children. They were waving, too.
  • Ash: Something must be wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash.
  • Ash: This station is for goods, not passengers.
  • Children: Help, Ash, help! We're glad to see you.
  • George Carlin: Called the children.
  • Children: Please, will you take us home?
  • George Carlin: The stationmaster explained to Ash's driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Ash waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Sonic was waiting to take them home. When Ash finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Steven might be cross with him.
  • Alex: I warned Ash.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Alex to Raimundo.
  • Alex: He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now.
  • George Carlin: But next morning, when Ash pick up his passengers, Steven was nowhere to be seen.
  • (Ash looks around and finds nothing)
  • Ash: Thank goodness.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Ash. Ash knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track.
  • Driver: Careful, Ash!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Ash falls off the rails)
  • Driver: That's done it!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We shan't get any further today!
  • Ash: But what about my passengers?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash.
  • Driver: Don't worry, they'll be looked after.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Ash had to shunt Beedrill in the yard. Sonic came to see him.
  • Sonic: I understand you need my help again.
  • Ash: Yes, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash sadly.
  • Ash: I can't run without my rails.
  • George Carlin: Sonic set off to collect Ash's passengers.
  • Passengers: Hello, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: We're glad you're here.
  • George Carlin: Sonic drove along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Ash felt miserable.
  • Ash: I've lost my passengers to Sonic. They'll like him better than me.
  • George Carlin: Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Sonic can work together more.
  • George Carlin: When Ash reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers.
  • Passengers: Sonic is a good hedgehog, but we missed our train rides with you.
  • George Carlin: They said. Later, Ash spoke to Sonic.
  • Ash: Thank you for looking after my passengers.
  • Sonic: That's all right, Ash. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you.
  • Ash: You're a good friend, indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: And always will be.

Kevin, Heathcliff and The Really Useful Party

  • George Carlin: Heathcliff the Cat is old fashioned, but he doesn't care. He knows that he is really useful, like his friend Kevin Keene. Early one morning, Heathcliff was chuffing about the Vicarage Orchard. He had important news for Kevin.
  • Heathcliff: The Vicar says that not all children are able to have holidays by the sea, so he's having a garden party to raise money for his seaside trip. I'm going to be the star attraction.
  • George Carlin: Chattered Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: Giving rides to all the visitors. The Vicar is putting up posters all about it.
  • Kevin: I'd like to help too.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Kevin.
  • Kevin: But without my rails, I wouldn't be much good at the garden party.
  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful day but Kevin was worried.
  • Kevin: I wish there was something I can do for a party.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Kevin: I'd like to be helpful like Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Kevin's driver laughed.
  • Driver: You're helpful in your own way, and that's on the railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, it was Heathcliff's turn to look disappointed. He had bad news.
  • Heathcliff: The Vicar's been so busy that he forgot to put up the posters. Now no one will know about the party.
  • George Carlin: But Kevin had an idea.
  • Kevin: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Kevin: Everything is going to be all right.
  • George Carlin: Then he explained to his driver.
  • Kevin: The Vicar can paste his posters on my cab and coaches, so wherever I go, they'll go too.
  • Driver: Well done, Kevin.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: I'm sure Steven would agree.
  • George Carlin: As indeed he did. Kevin steamed happily to the stations collecting his passengers.
  • Passengers: Look!
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: The Vicar is holding a party. We must go do that.
  • George Carlin: Later Heathcliff was resting in the orchard shed when Sonic rolled by.
  • Sonic: Hello, Heathcliff. Why are you dozing there like an old stick-in-the-mud?
  • Heathcliff: I'm not dozing, I'm resting.
  • George Carlin: Replied Heathcliff. Then he told Sonic about the Vicar's party.
  • Sonic: I'll be there too.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Sonic.
  • Sonic: I'm not sure people would wanna ride on a cat after traveling in the smart blue hedgehog like me.
  • George Carlin: The party day arrived. It had rained heavenly during the night and the orchard grove was soaked.
  • Heathcliff: Rain and mud won't spoil my day.
  • George Carlin: Said Heathcliff.
  • Driver: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed his driver.
  • Driver: We'll stay on the road then we won't get bogged down.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff was soon busy trending up and down the quiet country lane, carrying lots of laughing children. He was just turning the corner when he heard Bertie.
  • Sonic: Hello, old timer. I'm taking everyone to the party. People have come from all other the island.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff gave Sonic a cheerful whistle, and turned backed toward the orchard. Then there was trouble.
  • Sonic: Help, I'm stuck!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Sonic. His feet had sunk deep in the orchard mud. Freakazoid arrived just in time.
  • Freakazoid: I'm the one who has to plough fields.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Freakazoid.
  • Freakazoid: We better get you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Using strong ropes, Freakazoid and Heathcliff pulled Sonic cleared the mud.
  • Heathcliff: This will teach Sonic a thing or two.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff chuffered to himself. At last, Sonic was on the road again.
  • Sonic: Thank you, Heathcliff. You're not a stick-in-the-mud at all.
  • Heathcliff: No.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: But you were. Just for a little while.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the Vicar arrived to see Kevin and his driver.
  • Vicar: Thanks to your good idea about the posters. Hundreds of people payed to come to the party. We've raised lots of money for the children.
  • George Carlin: Kevin was very pleased and Heathcliff fell happily asleep thinking of all the children who would now get to the seaside at last.

Ken Does It Again

  • George Carlin: Virgil and Alex enjoyed working at the university, pulling and pushing Beedrill with cargo to and from the hallways. But one morning, the characters were exhausted. The harbour was busier than ever. Steven promised that another character would be found to help them.
  • Alex: Huh. It's about time.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Virgil: I ached so much I can hardly get my wheels to move.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Virgil. They waited for the character to arrive. It came as a shock when he did.
  • Ken: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Squirmed Ken in his oily voice. The two characters had not work with Ken for a long time.
  • Virgil: What are you doing here?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Virgil.
  • Ken: Your worth Ste...er, Steven sent me. I hope you are please to see me again. I have to shunt some dreadful tiresome Beedrill.
  • Alex: Shunt where?
  • George Carlin: Said Alex suspiciously.
  • Ken: Where? Why from here to there.
  • George Carlin: Purred Ken.
  • Ken: And then again from there to here. Easy, isn't it?
  • George Carlin: With that, Ken as if to make himself clear bumped some Beedrill hard.
  • Beedrill: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the Beedrill.
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Ken. Alex and Virgil were horrified. They did not trust Ken at all. They refuse to work and did not leave their shed. Steven was enjoying his tea and iced bun when the telephone rang.
  • Steven: So there's trouble in the harbour yard? I'll be there right away.
  • George Carlin: Ken was working loudly and alone. Cargo lay on the key. Ships and passengers were delayed. Everyone was complaining about Steven's Railway. Alex and Virgil were sulking in their shed.
  • Steven: What's all this?
  • George Carlin: Demaded Steven.
  • Alex: We're on strike, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex nervously.
  • Virgil: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Added Virgil.
  • Virgil: Beg pardon, sir, but we don't work with Ken, sir. You said you sent him packing, sir.
  • Steven: I have to give Ken a second chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied Steven.
  • Steven: I'm trying to help by bringing Ken here. Now you must help me he is the only character available.
  • George Carlin: Alex and Virgil went sadly back to work. Next day, things were no better. Ken's driver did not put on his brakes on properly and Ken started to move. He went bump straight into Alex.
  • Ken: Wake up there, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Scowled Ken.
  • Ken: You have work to do.
  • George Carlin: He didn't even say he was sorry to Alex. Later, Ken bumped the Beedrill so hard that the loads went everywhere.
  • Alex: What would Steven say?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Alex.
  • Virgil: He won't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Ken: So who's going to tell you I wonder? Two goody-goody tattletales like you I suppose?
  • George Carlin: Alex and Virgil did not wanna be tattletales, so they said nothing. Ken thinking he can getting away from his bad behavior was ruder than ever. Next day, he was shunting Beedrill full of China Clay. He banged the Beedrill hard into the buffers, but the buffers weren't secure. The silly Beedrill were sunked! Steven heard the news. The Beedrill were hoisted safely from the sea but the clay was lost. Steven spoke severly to Ken.
  • Steven: The harbour master has tell me anything. Things weren't much better here before you arrived. I shall not be inviting you back. Now Virgil and Alex, I hope you don't mind having handle the work by yourselves again.
  • Alex: Oh no, Sir.
  • Virgil: Yes please, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied the characters. Whistling cheerfully, they puff back to work while Ken sulk slowly away.

Terry and The Famous Visitor

  • George Carlin: It was an important day in the yard. Everyone was excited, making notes and taking photographs. A special visitor had arrived, and was now the center of attention.
  • Ash: Who's that?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Ash to Virgil.
  • Virgil: That...
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil proudly.
  • Virgil: ...is a celebrity.
  • Alex: A what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Alex.
  • Virgil: A celebrity is a very famous character.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil.
  • Virgil: Driver says we can talk to him soon.
  • Ash: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: He's probably too famous to even notice us.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Terry arrived.
  • Terry: Pah!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Who cares? A lot of fuss about nothing, if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: And he steamed away. Later that night, the characters found that the visitor wasn't concieted at all. He enjoyed talking the engines, till' long after the stars came out. He left early next morning. Terry was still complaining.
  • Terry: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Terry: Chattering all night. Who is he, anyway?
  • Ash: Virgil told you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: He's famous.
  • Terry: As famous as me? Nonsense.
  • Ash: He's famouser than you. He went 100 miles an hour before you were thought of.
  • Terry: Huh. So he says.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: But I didn't like his looks. He's got no dome. Never trust domeless characters. They're not respectable. I never boast, but I'd say that 100 miles an hour would be easy for me. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Virgil took some Beedrill to Kevin's station.
  • Kevin: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Called Kevin.
  • Kevin: That famous character came through this morning. He whistled to me. Wasn't he kind?
  • Virgil: He's the finest character in the world.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil, then he told Kevin what Terry had said.
  • Kevin: Take no notice.
  • George Carlin: Soothed Kevin.
  • Kevin: He's just jealous. He thinks no character should be famous but him. Look, he's coming now.
  • George Carlin: Terry was running very fast. His feet pounded the rails.
  • Terry: He did it, I'll do it. He did it, I'll do it!
  • George Carlin: Terry's train rocketed past, and was gone.
  • Virgil: He'll knock himself to bits!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Virgil. Terry's driver eased him off.
  • Terry's Driver: Steady, Terry. We aren't running a race.
  • Terry: We are, then.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry, but he said it to himself. Suddenly, Terry began to feel a little strange.
  • Terry: The top of my boiler seems funny.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Terry: It feels as if something is loose! I'd better go slower.
  • George Carlin: But it was too late. On the viaduct, they met the wind. It was a teasing wind that blew suddenly at hard puffs. Terry thought it wanted to push him off the bridge.
  • Terry: No, you don't!
  • George Carlin: He said firmly. But the wind had other ideas. It curled round his boiler, crept under his loose dome, and lifted off and away into the valley below. Terry was most uncomfortable. The cold wind was whistling through his hole where his dome should be and he felt silly without it. At the big station, the Beedrill laughed at him. Terry tried to wheesh them away. But they crowded round', no matter what he did. On the way back home, he wanted his driver to stop and fetch his dome.
  • Terry's Driver: We'll never find it now.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Terry's Driver: You'll have to go to the works for a new one.
  • George Carlin: Terry was very cross.
  • Terry: I hope the shed is empty tonight.
  • George Carlin: He huffed to himself. But all the characters were there waiting.
  • A Voice: Never trust domeless characters.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice from somewhere behind him.
  • A Voice: They aren't respectable.

Ozzy's Hamster

  • George Carlin: Virgil Hawkins worked hard in the hallways at the Cartoon University. Sometimes, he pulled coaches. Sometimes he pushed Beedrill. But whatever the work, Virgil got the job done without fuss. One day, Virgil was resting in the shed when Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Your work in the yard had been good. Would you like to have a branch line to your own.
  • Virgil: Yes please, sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil. So Virgil took charge of his new branch line. The responsibility delighted him. The line runs along a coast by sandy beaches till it meets a port were big ships come in. Virgil enjoyed exploring every curve and corner of the line. Sea breezes swirled his smoke high into the air and his green paint glistened in the sunlight.
  • Virgil: This is just like being on holiday.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Driver: Well you know what they say.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: A change is as good as a rest.
  • George Carlin: Soon, Virgil was busier than ever. Steven was building a new station at the port. Virgil pulled the heavy Beedrill whenever they were needed. Sonic looked after Virgil's passengers and the other characters helped too. But the work took a long time. Noise and dust filled the air.
  • Jackie: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Jackie.
  • Jackie: The station is nearly finished.
  • Virgil: And on time, too.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil thankfully. Virgil felt his responsibility deeply and talked endlessly about it.
  • Virgil: You don't understand, Ozzy, how much Steven relies on me.
  • Ozzy: Och aye.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Ozzy sleepily.
  • Virgil: I'm a teenager, and I...
  • Ozzy: Quack, quack, quack.
  • Virgil: What?
  • Ozzy: You heard. Quack, quack you go. Sounds like you had an egg layed. Now wheesh and let a cell sleep.
  • Virgil: Quack yourself!
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil indignantly. Later, he spoke to his driver.
  • Virgil: Ozzy says I quack, as if I laid an egg.
  • Fireman: Quack do you?
  • George Carlin: Pondered his fireman. He whispered something to Virgil and his driver. They were going to play a joke on Ozzy and pay him back for teasing Virgil. The characters were busy for the rest of the day and nothing more was said. Not even a quack. But when at last, Ozzy was asleep, Virgil's driver and fireman popped something into his water tank. Next morning when Ozzy for water, he found that he had an unexpected passenger aboard. A small white hamster popped out of his water tank.
  • Ozzy: Now look who's behind this.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Ozzy. The hamster was tamed, she shared the fireman's sandwiches and rode in the tender. The other characters enjoyed teasing Ozzy about her. Presently, she grew tired of travelling and hopped off to the station and there she stayed. That night, Ozzy's driver and fireman got busy and in the morning when Virgil's crew arrived to look him over they laughed and laughed.
  • Driver: Look, Virgil. Look what's under your bunker. It's a nest box with an egg in it.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy opened a sleepy eye.
  • Ozzy: Well, well, well. You must've laid it in the night, Virgil. All are for yours.
  • George Carlin: Then Virgil laughed too.
  • Virgil: You win, Ozzy. It did take a clever character to get the better of you.
  • George Carlin: There's a pond near the hamster station. Here she often swims and welcomes the trains as they passed by. The stationmaster calls her Tori. But to everyone else, she is always Ozzy's Hamster.

Alex and The Traffic Light

  • George Carlin: Alex works in the hallways at the Cartoon University. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Alex: Peep peep! Hurry up, Terry, the train's ready.
  • George Carlin: Terry thought he was late.
  • Alex: Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Alex and showed him a train of dirty Beedrill. Terry thought how he can pay Alex back for teasing him. Next it was Raimundo's turn.
  • Alex: Stay in the shed today, Raimundo. Steven will come and see you.
  • Raimundo: Ah!
  • George Carlin: Thought Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Steven knows I'm a fine boy. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo's driver and fireman could not make him move. The other characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Raimundo's work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, Raimundo. You can't stay here all day.
  • Raimundo: Steven told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • Raimundo: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Oh. Where's Alex?
  • George Carlin: Alex had wisely disappeared. When Steven came back, he was cross with Raimundo and Alex for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Alex was still being cheeky.
  • Alex: I say, you characters, I'm to take some Beedrill to Ash's junction. Steven chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful kid.
  • Raimundo: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Raimundo. Terry looked across to Raimundo. They were going to play a trick on Alex.
  • Terry: Raimundo and I were just speaking about traffic lights at the junction. We can't be too careful about traffic lights, but then I needn't say that to a really useful kid like you, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Alex felt flattered.
  • Raimundo: We've had spoken about backing traffic lights.
  • George Carlin: Put in Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Alex: No thank you, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: I know all about signals.
  • George Carlin: Alex was a little worried.
  • Alex: I wonder what backing traffic lights are.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Alex: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • George Carlin: He puffed crossly to his Beedrill and felt better. He came to a traffic light.
  • Alex: Bother, it's a danger.
  • George Carlin: The traffic light moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Alex had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Alex: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing traffic lights.
  • Driver: Come on, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Alex: But it's a backing traffic light.
  • George Carlin: Alex protested and told him about Terry and Raimundo. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Alex: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • George Carlin: He was too late. Terry saw everything. That night, the big characters talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Alex thought they were being very silly.

Ash, Alex and The Mail Route

  • George Carlin: That night, when the other characters are tucked away in their rooms, you can still hear the faraway call of a Kids' WB character and the proper sound of feet moving. This is the sound of the mail delivery. One train is pulled by Ash, and the other by Alex, as the loads are too heavy for one character to do the work alone. The mail is loaded into Beedrill at the harbour and the characters pull their trains through the silent stations delivering their precious loads. One a clear night, a big shiny moon brightens their journey, but often Ash and Alex can even see the stars. But whenever the weather, lamps along the track always light their way. One night, Alex was waiting at the junction. The main line train was late. At last, Shaggy arrived.
  • Shaggy: Sorry.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Shaggy: The mail boat from the main line was delayed.
  • Driver: Come on, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's make up for lost time.
  • George Carlin: Alex hurried along as quickly as he could. But the sun was already rising as he finish his work.
  • Alex: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Thought Alex.
  • Alex: It's nice be up in about, when it's the start of a new day and there's no one else around.
  • George Carlin: Alex was not alone for long.
  • Alex: Bother!
  • George Carlin: Thought Alex.
  • Alex: It's that dizzy-thing Superman.
  • Superman: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Whirled Superman.
  • Superman: I only said railways were out of date, but you're so slow with the mail. You should give everyone their stamps back.
  • George Carlin: Alex was too tired to explain.
  • Alex: Bird brain.
  • George Carlin: He muttered.
  • Virgil: Good morning, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Called Virgil.
  • Virgil: You're up early this morning.
  • Alex: No, you're wrong.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Alex.
  • Alex: I'm back, tired and late.
  • George Carlin: He rolled up to the shed and fell asleep, almost before his buffers touched the bar. His driver decided to set off early that evening. Ash was waiting at the station.
  • Ash: Thank goodness I have a chance to speak to you. Driver says the person in charge of the mail has complained to Steven about the delay last night.
  • Alex: But that wasn't my fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Alex.
  • Ash: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: And so does Steven, but this mail person wouldn't listen. Tonight, we'll just have to be quicker than ever before.
  • George Carlin: The characters were just leaving when they heard a familiar buzzing.
  • Superman: I say, you two, there's news flying about.
  • Alex: Where?
  • George Carlin: Puffed Alex crossly.
  • Superman: All other the place. They're going to scrap the mail train and use me instead. Wings work wonders you know. Always.
  • Ash: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash. That night, everything ran like clockwork. Ash and Alex steamed through the stations making good time everywhere they went. At a station, Ash notice the man looking cold and worried. He had missed his train home.
  • Driver: We can give you a ride.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash's driver.
  • Ash's Driver: But it'll be rather uncomfortable.
  • Man: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said the man.
  • Man: Anything's better than sitting here.
  • George Carlin: The next afternoon, Alex past the airfield and saw Superman.
  • Alex: Hello, lazywings. Are you too tired to fly today?
  • Superman: The wings are too strong.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Superman.
  • Superman: I've been grounded.
  • Alex: You need rails.
