"*Can I have a word in your shell-like?" Asked Larry the Lobster, lifeguard of the Goo Lagooon his physician Purple Doctorfish.
"Yes, you can. Please tell me what happened." Answered politely Purple Doctorfish.
"I am thinking about orange crush in my gym. Is it healthy enough to boost my chances of winning?" Asked Larry the Lobster.
"Only if they were processed in Sweden." Authoritatively answered Purple Doctorfish.
"NOCCO". Strangely extending pronunciation Larry the Lobster left Purple Doctorfish and went into the Krusty Krab for breakfast.



*I would like to talk to you
