Lulu: “Mr. Scrooge, here’s that potted plant that we owe the® Knights who say ‘Ni’ for using their trademarked word ‘the®’.”
Scrooge: “You can’t just barge in here. I’m meeting with other clients. Bah, humbug.”
Lulu: “Other clients? Are they invisible?”
Scrooge: “They’re not invisible, they just insist on sitting on the highest piece of furniture they can find.”
Charlee: “We’re up here, Lulu.”
Chaplin: “Hey, what is that thing? Is it a pineapple?”
Chaplin: “It doesn’t really look like a pineapple, but I still feel like I need to chew on it.”
Blue: “Knock yourself out. I chew on things all the® time.”
Charlee: “Woo-hoo! Chaplin went to a lower elevation! I win!”
Lulu: “I can’t help but notice that you didn’t include the® ‘®’ when you said ‘the®’.”
Scrooge: “Those Knights don’t really have a trademark on ‘the’. I just told them they did so they would go away and stop saying ‘Ni’.”
Lulu: “But isn’t that fraud? Aren’t you afraid you might get caught and go to jail?”
Scrooge: “Go to jail? Me? Ha ha ha! Jail is for people who aren’t constantly surrounded by a cloud of flying money.”
Chaplin: NOM NOM NOM
Ninja Hedgehog Potted Cactus: “Hey, that tickles!”
Charlee: “Hey, wait … Chaplin is eating something and I’m not!”
Charlee: “What is this? It hardly seems worth eating. Can I have some?”
Chaplin: “No, it’s mine, all mine!”
Ninja Hedgehog Potted Cactus: “I agreed to pretend to be a cactus, not to get nibbled on by cats.”
Blue: “I’m told it’s a great honor to be nibbled on by cats.”
Ninja Hedgehog Potted Cactus: “Told by who?”
Lulu: “Okay, aren’t you afraid the Knights will find out and come say ‘Ni’ to you again?”
Scrooge: “As long as I give them a potted cactus once in a while, they’ll never figure it out. Bah, humbug.”
Just then …
Knight Who Says ‘Ni’: “I have come to collect our tribute of potted cactus!”
Chaplin: “You can’t have it, I’m not done chewing on it yet.”
Charlee: “Oooh, he’s got a herring!”

Can’t wait to find out what happens next!
Lucy: Oh! It’s a cliff hanger!
Chia: I don’t see any cliffs.
Xena: that herring looks good. Bet the cats trade it for the potted not-cactus.
Riley: I think Blue’s gonna eat the potted not-cactus.
Chia: Why do they do this? Why don’t they just give us the whole story instead of making us wait?!
Lucy: You wouldn’t understand…you’re not a reporter like me.
Chia, Xena, Riley (turning to Lucy): Phthhhh!
Why wasn’t that herring red??
charlee & chaplin…forgetz de “pine appull”….if therz a herring in de houz….go for it 🙂
We think we might like a herring over a hedgehog or a cactus any day, but we are thinking this might be a red herring.
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Maybe someone will have a herring loss!
Get it before Blue does, Charlee… Knights in tights (err dresses) aren’t too cluey! I bet you could snatch it before he knows it’s gone!
