Abner, do you smell that?
I smell it, Gladys. It’s Mama Bear?s porridge. She makes it every
morning at this time. Let them eat their breakfast in peace.
Abner, if they’re supposed to be eating breakfast, why are they all
leaving their house?
Maybe they have a veterinarian appointments. Or maybe they burned their
porridge and they’re going out for breakfast. Or maybe their house is
on fire. I’m sure they have a good reason that doesn’t involve us.
It looks like they’re going for a walk. That’s unusual.
Walking is unusual? Would you rather they run?
They don’t usually go for walks in the morning. They usually walk in
Maybe they saw you staring at them and decided to give you something to
gossip about. They know how happy that makes you.
Well then, what do you say about that!
About that little girl.
She’s heading toward the bear’s house. She’s knocking. She’s… she’s
going in! The Bears aren’t home, but she just walked right in!
Maybe they hired her to clean. Maybe she’s related. Maybe she came,
saw the fire, and went in to put it out.
Their house is on fire? We must call the fire department.
Do you see smoke?
Then there’s no fire.
She’s breaking in. She’s a burglar! We must call the police!
When she walks out with their television, we’ll call the police.
But she’s a burglar!
How old is she?
A ten-year-old burglar girl? I doubt it.
You’re just… what was that? I heard a crash!
Probably just branches hitting the house.
No, it came from the bear’s Place.
Then it’s none of our business.
None of our business? If our neighbors heard crashing coming from our
house, wouldn’t you want them to help?
No. It would probably just be you doing the dishes. You’re a very
noisy dishwasher, you know.
Yes, but… look! It’s the Bears! They’re coming home! Oh, that
girl?s going to get in trouble, you just wait.
Shhh! I’m trying to hear what’s going on.
Do you hear anything?
I told you. She’s a relative.
I don’t. Look at that! I don’t believe it!
That girl jumped out the second floor window!
Now would she do that if she were supposed to be there?
Okay Gladys, you can call the police.
I told you, Abner.
I know, Gladys. I know.
