ISOLDE [alerted]: “Esther, there’s something on the road!”
ESTHER: “It’s ok, Isolde. Go ahead, you need not worry.”

ISOLDE (to RR guard on duty): “Security check, PLEASE!  Foreign object on the road! Human rider is not taking me seriously but we cannot perceed before we know we are out of harm’s way.”
SHEBA: “Sure, partner! Heading over there immediately!”

SHEBA: “OK, Isolde, checking them out as we speak.”

SHEBA: “RR security investigation is complete. Foreign objects are indeed – as human leader just pointed out – harmless. No need for any four legged creature to be afraid.”
ISOLDE: “But there are so many of them! Looks to be a whole dozen to me!!”

SHEBA: “Yes, there are. Eleven chicks and one big mama duck.”

ESTHER [to RR guard on duty]: “Sheba, could you get the foreign objects gently out of our way? That might be what it takes to convince Isolde that this small but large family of ducks do not constitute a threat to her…”

SHEBA: “Right on it, Esther!”

SHEBA: “Far enough, Esther? Mother Duck starting to get hostile now… She thinks I’m about to eat her!”
ESTHER: “Perfect! Now let’s hit those trails!”
SHEBA: “Yeah!”

SHEBA [to the audience]: “Ah… always feels good when a mission has been accomplished!”
