Benjamin Roy: Wait a minute. Tell me that again.
Megan: BR, we know what we saw!
Daphne: Yes! There's a monster prowling around the backyard!
Rhoda: I saw it too! I would have kicked its behind, but, um, the other girls were too scared, so we ran right back into the house.
BR: Alright, alright...I'll grab Pete and we'll go outside and take a look around.
Daphne: Oh, thank you BR! You two be careful!
Pete Dakota: What exactly are we doing?
BR: I told you; Megan, Daphne, and Rhoda say they saw something sneaking around out here. Rhoda thinks it was a Minnesota Snow-Ape.
Pete: A S-s-snow-Ape?! >gulp< D-d-do you believe in those?
BR: No, I don't. But it will make the girls feel better if we investigate.
Pete: Oh, O-o-okay.
BR: Hey! What's this?
Pete: What did you find?
BR: I don't know. We'll give it to Stephen Orange to examine.
Stephen Orange: >mutter, mutter< I don't know why they gave this to me. I'm a marine biologist, not mammalian. >grumble, grumble<
Nicholas: Hullo Stephen, whatever are you up to?
Stephen: >And I hate being interrupted, sigh< I am examining a piece of fur BR and Pete found in the backyard. >sigh<
Nicholas: Great Richard the III's Ghost! I overheard some of the girls nattering on about this. Do you think there is a mysterious local simian roaming the garden?
Stephen: >sigh< There's no such thing as a Minnesota Snow-Ape. This is probably just from a squirrel or a rabbit.
Nicholas: Still, awfully exciting, don't you think?
Stephen: No. Make yourself useful; dump this flask out in the sink and wash it.
Nicholas: Oh dear, er, this isn't some sort of acid, is it?
Stephen: No, it's grape Kool-Aid. I was drinking from it until I remembered I don't like grape Kool-Aid.
BR: Well, we haven't seen anything unusual. I'll bet they just saw shadows on a mound of snow and their imaginations got the better of them. Let's go in.
Pete: B-b-best idea all day.
