Diablo: Was that luck or skill?

Phoenix: A little of both.

Diablo: I was wondering when you were going to figure it out.

Phoenix: Well, the paint stick was a little on the edge so it didn't take much to push it through the handle.

Diablo: And when it fell through...Wa-La. Access to the food pile!

Phoenix: Chips.

Diablo: Now if you can just figure out how to open the refrigerator. I could use a little salsa on these things.

Phoenix: I think we are going to be here for a while.

Diablo: That's okay. I like New York. I get to go outside to play.

Phoenix: Except that 'udder cat is here too. Yells her head off in the middle of the night. I'm losing my beauty sleep.

Diablo: She is blind as a bat. Walk right up to her and she can't tell you are there. Just don't touch the whiskers.

Phoenix: I'd rather not.

Diablo: You sound a little upset. Why? If you're patient you stand a good chance to get some of that good and stinky canned food she'll leave in her bowl. Something we never get a chance to eat.

Phoenix: That's why you have fish breath.

Diablo: Oops. Is it that bad?

Yellow Rice

Phoenix: I think you are pushing our luck.

Diablo: What do you mean? She left it out and then left us here alone.

Phoenix: It was an accident. Not intended for our consumption. Remember the last time? You threw it up. Too spicy.

Diablo: Your guts were spilled out on the bathroom rug too. Now look at this stuff. A whole box of food left on the floor.

Phoenix: That’s because she is packing. I got this feeling we're going to move again.

Diablo: All the more reason to dive into the box. Moving sucks.

Phoenix: What have you got there?

Diablo: Smells good, doesn’t it. Look has no fat!

Phoenix: Uncooked Saffron Yellow Rice? That is what you’re eating?

Diablo: I’m just licking the spices and vegetables. A delicate balance of onion, garlic, bell peppers tomatoes…

Phoenix: Mixed with Monosodium glutamate, hydrolyzed corn gluten, partially hydrogenated cotton seed, sodium aluminosilicate…

Diablo: Hey, isn’t that last one an anti-caking agent?

Phoenix: That might not spew too well.
