Bogey, A visiting cat
The scene: Casa Core Dump. Day.
Bogey, while being brought in for a week-long stay as his family goes out of town: Hey! Let me out of this box you assholes! Let me out! Are you crazy? Where the hell are you taking me?
Shiva: Another cat! Holy crap! I’m hiding!
Turbo: Another cat! Holy crap! I’m hiding!
Bogey: Thanks for letting me out of the box, you bastards. Now where am I? Why did you drag me here in that box? I’m hiding in a closet.
The scene: Casa Core Dump. That night.
Shiva: I’m hiding.
Turbo: I’m hiding.
Bogey: I’m hiding.
The scene: Casa Core Dump. Next day.
Shiva: That other cat is _freaking me out, man.
Turbo: That other cat better stay hidden in the closet. I’m watching him and will kick his ass if he comes out. Hiss. Spit.
Bogey: I’m so freaked out I’m going to have diarrhea right here in the closet. Serves those bastards right to have to clean it up.
The scene: Casa Core Dump. Next night.
Bogey: So thirsty and hungry. Can’t leave closet.
Turbo: You better not leave that closet or I’m going to kick your ass.
