RED: Hey, Poppy. So, explain this dog situation to me.
POPPY: Well, I was minding my own business here pruning flowers... and then, when my back was turned, this bad man stole Dogwood!
MORCUBUS: Hmph! What nonsense. The name's Morcubus, and the little girl is simply a sore loser.
MORCUBUS: While she spins an interesting tale, the dog is mine! And his name isn't Dogwood... it's Killfang, dog-disciple of shadow and flame!
POPPY: No! That name is sad and bad! He's my Dogwood! He's always with me, and was with me right up until this bad man stole him!
MORCUBUS: Ah, Killfang. See how he flocks to me? Obviously he is mine! He has been mine since the dawn of time!
POPPY: No he's not!!!
MORCUBUS: Well, then prove it, little girl!
POPPY: Um...OK...well, I know Dogwood best... ...and he loves his pink squishy ball!
RED: Can I see this ball you're talking about? Perhaps I can...
POPPY: ...I lost it...
RED: Okay, you two. Let me get to the bottom of this. I'll determine who's telling the truth here.
RED: So, you lost the ball around here somewhere?
POPPY: Um... yeah! We were playing with it earlier. It rolled away somewhere...
RED: Here boy, do you like the bouncy ball?
RED: Hi Gino. Have you seen Poppy and her dog recently?
GINO: Poppy? Why yes! She came in here just recently to eat lunch.
RED: I see. And did you see her dog with her?
GINO: Her dog? No, I didn't see a dog with her.
RED: Thank you very much, Gino.
RED: Poppy, about your visit to Gino's... earlier on you said the dog was always with you. But I spoke with Gino, and he claims that you went into his pizzeria to get lunch, and he didn't see a dog with you.
POPPY: Ooooh....! Yes, It's true...I left Dogwood by himself. But it was just for a moment! I promise! My big sister Violet said that I'm too young to take care of a dog, and I didn't want to disappoint her...that's why I lied...
RED: That's okay, Poppy. But remember, I'm trying to help you. I need to know the truth!
POPPY: Okay! Sorry, Red...
RED: Here, boy! Have a bone!
RED: Here, boy...is this jerky what you were looking for? And if so, why didn't you just, you know, go around the wall? It's not like there's a gate...
???: *Nom nom nom*
RED: Poppy, I've solved the case! Oh, and I guess this involves you, too, Morcubus...
POPPY: That's great!
RED: Dogwood definitely belongs to Poppy.
POPPY: Hooray! Come here, Dogwood! Here, boy!
MORCUBUS: This is an outrage! I demand an explanation!
RED: You told me that Dogwood loved chewing bones, but clearly he does not.
MORCUBUS: What?! Who doesn't love chewing on bones?
RED: It was Poppy who identified Dogwood's favorite toy: this pink ball.
MORCUBUS: But that little girl lied about me taking the dog! He just walked up to me!
RED: He was just hungry. He only walked your way because he was trying to get over to Gino's jerky.
MORCUBUS: Feel pretty clever, don't you, detective? Well don't! You've made a very powerful enemy today.
RED: It's just a dog.
MORCUBUS: I don't care about the dog! That was just entertainment. But you... you tried to make me look like a fool.
RED: I didn't do anything except find the truth.
MORCUBUS: The "truth" is you'll rue the day you crossed... the infernal Morcubus!!
RED: Yikes. What's the deal with that guy? I better head back to Gino's.
