HARK! WHO GOES THERE?RATTUS: Why old chap, it's spring. These look to me like racoon or maybe bear prints....TEA RAT: You don't know your prints old thing...these look like dog prints to me....maybe it's Balzac my old fox terrier on the loose? Shall we go fetch him?RATTUS: Let's. Let's also take a thermos of tea and meet Bebe and Miss Moussie for a picnic by the lake. And how did you, pray tell, make the MARQUIS for Nowhere? How on earth did Miss Moussie agree to a photo shoot with you, and YOU NEVER TAKE OFF YOUR BOOTS!TEA RAT: I would take off my boots for her and her alone.....do you see how happy we are as we float on the lake of rosehips tea?RATTUS: You are a hopeless romantic. But, it's SPRING!(AWESOME DRAWINGS PENNY and DUTCHESS!) Let's have FUN!
TEA RAT: OH! Bebe dearest, Tea Rat here...how much for your bunch of pink roses? I shall buy a bunch!
TEA RAT: Miss Bebe, purveyor of fine flowers....do you have an grape hyacinth, blue delphiniums or pink tulips? I want to put in my order!
TEA RAT: I have to come back for this music. It is indeed a perfect day in Nowhere, always.
