Gkronuk, River God: Wasn't really thinking, actually.
Esseltaub, Forest Spirit: That I should never have given that woodchopper three wishes.
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: We were thinking aaaaaaaar—
Gkronuk: Oh, no.
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: —buckle, Fatty Arbuckle was a well known actor in the 1920s. That's what we were thinking.
Esseltaub: Are they at it?
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: And we were thinking, aaaaaarrr—
Pluck, Fairy: Us? We were just here saying, thinking rather, and saying and thinking together, really—
Dander, Fairy: At once, both at once.
Pluck: What I was saying and thinking with Dander was that when those big nasty loggers show up again they'll get a right bit of business from old Pluck!
Dander: And from Dander, too!
Pluck: We're ready this time. We've got a changeling CEO to install on the board of the logging company and everything.
Dander: Just let me hear sawing!
Pluck: We'll toss those loggers right off the banks and into the river!
Dander: I'll toss off every logger in the forest!
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: —lington Road was a movie about terrorism starring Jeff Bridges and Tim Robbins.
Gkronuk: Pirates, stop!
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: We were also thinking, aaaaarrrr—
Esseltaub: Thanks for not chopping down my tree, I say, and hey, okay, so what's your wish? Gold, big house, sandwich, whatever.
Gkronuk: Taub, just get over it.
Esseltaub: Who ever heard of a woodchopper named Keanu? I had no idea. Sure, I'll make you a famous actor, what harm can it do? If I'd known.
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: —rrrrrrrr—
Gkronuk: Oh, God, PIRATES! STOP!
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: —peggiated chords are played in sequence rather than simultaneously.
Gkronuk: To be promoted from creek nymph to this.
Dander: There's no one in the world I won't toss off!
Esseltaub: At least your fish respect you. My trees treat me like a sap.
Gkronuk: I've got a lot of surly fish—oh, Taub. That was not called for.
Esseltaub: Look at that. I got the river god, hook, line—
Gkronuk: You're worse than the pirates.
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: Aaaaarrrr—
Gkronuk: Just go ahead and say it! Argyle! Arbitration! Ark of the Covenant! Ardmore, Pennsylvania!
Ghosts of Drowned Pirates: —gon is atomic number 18.
Gkronuk: Sometimes I wish I was an estuary.
