Me: Why don’t you come over here, Ducky?
Ducky: Shhh.
Me: Come on.
Ducky: Shhh! It might come back. Must stay vigilant.
Me: …
Ducky: Could kill us all.
Me: …
Ducky: You, me, and The Lady.
Me: What about Scooter?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The cat might be in cahoots with the monster.
Me: It’s a UPS woman, not a monster.
Ducky: Po-TAY-toe. Po-TAH-toe. 
Me: And Scooter is not working with the UPS woman.
Ducky: Probably what she’ll tell the police when they’re exhuming our graves in the yard.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Because they’ve killed us?
Ducky: Because they’ve killed us.
Me: …
Ducky: Of course the monster has a truck so it might take the bodies elsewhere.
Me: I don’t think…
Ducky: Shhh! I think the monster is coming back! 
Me: They only deliver once a day so…
Ducky: THERE SHE IS!!! ARRRRROOOOOOO!!!!!!!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Scared it away.
Me: That was a school bus.
Ducky: Didn’t stop, did it?
Me: Nope.
Ducky: Scared it away.
Me: ..
Ducky: Not today, monster/cat cabal. Not…today…
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Ducky: I tricked The Lady.
Me: How’d you do that?
Ducky: I wanted to be pet. So I flopped down where she was going to lie down before she could get there!
Me: …
Ducky: So when she laid down she’d see me and go, “Oh! I should pet Ducky!”
Me: …
Ducky: And now she’s petting me!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Slowly.
Me: …
Ducky: And I she’s not scratching me like she usually does.

Ducky: The cat is in my room.
Me: Technically the cat and you are in my room.

Me: And the Lady’s room.
Ducky: Technically you’re a jerk.
Me: Aw…
Ducky: She’s been drinking my water.
Me: The Lady? That seems unlikely.
Ducky: Always with the comedy.
Me: It’s how I interact with the universe.
Ducky: How lucky for the universe. The cat has been drinking my water.
Me: I noticed. Not sure what that’s about.
Ducky: I know what it is. She’s trying to assert dominance by showing ownership.
Me: You think?
Ducky: She doesn’t need to drink my water. She has water in her room.
Me: Once again, she has water in a room upstairs but it’s not her room.
Ducky: Apparently she’s not the only one trying to show dominance by taking ownership.
Me: …
Ducky: See, I’m suggesting that the cat and you…
Me: Yes. I got it. Very funny.
Ducky: It was more wry observation that straight comedy.
Me: …
Ducky: You know what is funny?
Me: What?
Ducky: When you pick up the cat.
Me: Scooter’s not a big fan of being picked up. Makes her unhappy.
Ducky: Comedy is time plus tragedy. So wait about five seconds and give it a shot.
Me: Comedy is tragedy plus time. You got the order wrong.
Ducky: In an additive process order is irrelevant. But even if it wasn’t you’re forgetting one thing.
Me: And that would be?
Ducky: GET THE CAT OUT OF MY ROOM!

Me: Leave her alone Ducky. She’s not going to give you any cereal.
Ducky: Can see into the future now, Daddy?
