It's down to this again, pal - you and me, on our own in this big house. Mom off with her friends, Dad on a business meeting, nothing but the housekeeper for company. But she don't care much for us, does she pal? She says you shed. 'Course you shed! What's so bad about that? Heck, people shed.

This rug's awful thin, isn't it, pal. Makes your elbows hurt.
