THE ADMIRAL
I don’t understand why no one came to our pancake party.

OCEAN GIRL
Didn’t you leave Agent Granger a secret message?

THE ADMIRAL
Yes! I carved HELLO into his favorite tree and wrote our address on his lightbulbs. 60 West Street! Who wouldn’t understand something as simple as that?

OCEAN GIRL
And to think, you made him all these pancakes.

THE ADMIRAL
Chocolate chip. His favorite.

OCEAN GIRL
What are we going to do with them all? You made so many!

THE ADMIRAL
Eat them, of course! I once ate so many pancakes in one sitting, they made me chairman of Denny’s!

I don’t believe you.

Om nom nom nom.
