Mmmm! this pizza looks good!
Bjorn, you get the plates and napkins; Ingmar, you get the beverages,
while I set up the DVD for a couple episodes of 24.
I'm hungry, Marguerite. There must be something to eat around here.
I wonder what's in this box. It sure smells good.

You can do it, Harold, I know you can.

That was just the thing.
Let's go find some dessert.

Here it is again, Marguerite, the Mountain of Steak.
Let's get it! I'm so hungry, Harold!

Aughhhh! It's on me! I'm suffocating under the fluff!

I'll save you, Marguerite.
Ooof. It won't budge.

Whew. Thank goodness it was distracted by the activity in the kitchen.
Run away before it sits on us again!
Here's a nice plate of festive chocolates.
Let's go to the market for cheese and carrots, and we'll have a great feast this afternoon.
Can't we eat them now?
Yes, I think I need chocolate fortification before braving the thronging crowds of the market.
You rats just wait. You'll appreciate them even more later.
Dive in!
**20 minutes later**
uuuuuhhhh. I can barely move.
That was delicious, Harold. There's not a single one left.

...yeah, "let's wait"...
..."we'll appreciate them so much more"...

Heros conference

Men! Look at them. Always going on about how they saved the day.

How they rescued some kitten from a tree.
How indestructable they are.

We'll drop this 16-ton weight on them and see how they do!
bombs away!
Ow! Hey, cut it out!
Holy brickbats, Maurice, we're being attacked!

Help me with this other one, Astrid.

I don't think we can save him this time, Batman.
Ow! Me! I can be saved! A little help with this brick?

Poor Harold. I guess I kind of believed him after all.

Um, guys? The brick?...

Still snubbing

So there are two converts to the new cat tree, but the old tree's number one fan is still pouting. How long until she notices it's in front of the radiator?

cat tree

Look! A huge present!
What do you think it is?

These instructions are rather obscure, but I think we can get it put together.

Are you sure this is right.
What the heck is it?
It's got little dangly balls with bells in them - it must be a cat tree!
A fabulous cat tree, with padded seats and everything. All the cats can get on it at once.
Yeah, right! They don't go anywhere all at once except to the catfoodbowl.
There's one who's nostalgic for the old one already.

The indestructable tail incident

Alright, rats, it's autumn, and it's time to work on the yard. This pile of branches pruned off the trees can be burned, too. We'll use the ashes for the vegetable garden.
You rake the leaves into a nice pile, while I put the laundry out to dry.
Hey! That Bjorn buried us in the leaves.
Cut it out, Bjorn!
NO fair throwing a heavy branch on us!
We'll get you, Bjorn.
Yeah, just catch me. I'm indestructable!

The pruning tool will get him.
Yeah! We'll snip his tail right off. Indestructible my buns.

Get him!
Hey, you guys aren't running with scissors there, are you?
Oh no.
We would never run with scissors.
This is a gardening device.
Alright, then.
You're not getting away this time, Bjorn!
I'm nottafraida you guys.
Ow Ow! Lemme go!
Say please.
I'm not sayin' please. Lemme go!

Ow ow Ow OW!
Did it work?
Er, it worked a little.
It didn't cut all the way through, though.

You guys tried to cut my tail off!
You buried us in leaves, and crushed us with a log!
Well, I'm sorry about that.
We're sorry too. Let's go get some lunch.

Aren't you rats done raking the leaves up yet?
What's taking so long?
Bjorn had a little tail thing...
Oh, okay.

How's your tail, Bjorn? I heard you had a little accident.
Yes. Um. It's fine. I put a bandage on it.
It's wonderful how you rats all get along together so well. Always playing and having great fun.
Isn't it!

Pumpkin carving

Hey, guys, let's carve a jack-o-lantern for Halloween!
With what?
With this nice pumpkin here, of course.
That's a pumpkin?
It's miniscule!
Aw, c'mon, it'll be great. We'll make it really scary.
It's microscopic.
How scared will people get if it's microscopic?
Ebola is microscopic.
Yeah, okay, small can be scary.
First we cut a hole in the top and scoop out the guts.
Let me try!
Give it some good fangs, there.
It's not easy. It's so teeny & all...
It looks like it's crying.
It's a threatening grimace!
It looks like it's crying for its mommy.
Maybe we could make it spikier.

How's that?
That's better!
Now it looks scowly.
Maybe it's about to throw up.
Well, that's scary.

Hey! The bad spider hand is getting it!
Run away!
