Yashy: FOR THE LAST TIME, I CAN’T DO IT!!
Chirpy: But Mommy! You’ve got wings like me, right?
Yashy: I’ll never get used to you calling me that.
Mike: You should try. You’d have all the style and grace of a rubber ball.
*Yashy shakes her fist in anger, while Chirpy mimics her.*
Yashy: I’d like to see you try, Fleabag!
Chirpy: Try, try!
Yashy: Look, I’m not a bird, Chirps. Some things are just different about us. I can watch you, though.
*Chirpy flies into a nearby tree.*
Chirpy: Look, it’s easy! Watch and you’ll be flyin’ in no time!
Yashy: Whatever you say!
*Yashy looks on with affection.*
*Yashy closes her eyes and recalls a scene from the past.*
Yashy (narrating): I guess I’m the closest thing to a mom she’s got..

*Mike leans back against a tree.*
Mike: What a relaxing day..
*Lucy reaches down from a branch to tap Mike.*
Lucy: Tag, you’re..
*Mike quickly leaps into the tree and pokes Lucy instead.*
Lucy: .. it.
Mike: You know there’s no point trying to outrun me!
*Lucy shoves Mike off the branch.*
Lucy: I’ll get you one day. Just wait.
*Mike lands on all fours.*
*Lucy hops out of the tree.*
Lucy: NOW you’re it, jerkface!
*Mike shoves Lucy back.*
*Lucy chases Mike into the distance while Yashy climbs into a sandbox.*
Lucy: Oh, so you’re gonna shove me? Wanna hear what my foot has to say about that?
*Yashy turns around, worried.*
