Quotes Edit

"Oh, [...] Fantastic."

"That's not even remotely surprising."

"Maybe later."

"That's not surprising, either."

"Yes, [...] I'm definitely the one who's been tearing my feathers out all day."

"For heaven's sake, [...] I'm trying to get my first decent sleep in four months. Could you all take this noisy conversation elsewhere? Especially you two."

"Calm down, Riff."

"I don't like it either, [...] but it's not like she can do anything with us both here. And she is an excellent distraction for the cubs."

"Wonderful, [...] I can't wait. With only five cubs I'll have far too much free time."

"Cubs! [...] Come be inspected! NOW."
