Officer Short Shrift:
Where were you on the night of July 25th?



Milo:
July 25th? What's that got to do with it?

Do with it? It's my birthday! Boys are always forgetting people's birthdays.

Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
You must forgive me, but you see, it's traditional for watch dogs to be ferocious.



Milo:
I thought you were just great, but are you sure it's alright to leave those lathargians back there alone?



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Oh, I don't just watch lathargians. I watch boys too. And right now, I'd say you needed a watch dog. And anyway, I just love automobile rides!



Milo:
Very pleased to have you along. My name is Milo.



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Milo? That's a strange name for a boy. My name is Tock.



Milo:
Isn't that kind of a strange name for a dog?



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
Oh, no. How many names can you give a watch dog? Actually, my name is Tick Tock, but my friends call me Tock.



Milo:
May I call you Tock? It's about time I had a friend.



Tick Tock the Watch Dog:
It's about time? But time is your friend!

Humbug:
Could you show us the biggest number there is? That will give him something to figure out.



Mathmegician:
Very well, Sir Humbug. What's the biggest number you can think of?



Humbug:
9,999,999,000,999 and... nine tenths!



Mathmegician:
Very good. Now add one to it.



Humbug:
Add one?



Mathmegician:
Now, add one to that. Add one again. Add one again. Add one again. Add one again.



Milo:
But he'd never be able to stop that way.



Mathmegician:
Never, for the number you hope for is always at least one higher than the one you had before, and that's so large that if you started saying it yesterday, you wouldn't stop until tomorrow.

Milo:
That's my speech! I didn't know I was going to eat my words.



King Azaz:
Of course you didn't. That's what we're all doing. You should have made a tastier speech.
