The Boy:
Do you mind if I recite a poem?



The Dragon:
You, boy? Why, well, oh, not at all!



Sir Giles:
Oh, of course, of course. Rather, rather!



The Boy:
'Tis evening / From the stars above / A soft mysterious light / Brings thoughts of friendship, joy and love.


[shouts]



The Boy:
Now how 'bout that fight?

Very good. I like the way you handle that fowl language.

[as Donald Duck] Foul language? Why the very idea!

The Boy:
Sir Giles, I presume?



Sir Giles:
Come, come, come, come, lad. Stop mumbling.



The Boy:
I came to talk about the dragon.



Sir Giles:
Ah, yes, yes, yes. Another tale of woe and misery, I suppose. Devoured your flocks, no doubt.



The Boy:
Oh, no, sir. He...



Sir Giles:
Aha! Made off with your loving parents, has he? Well, they shall be avenged!



The Boy:
But you don't understand...



Sir Giles:
What? Don't tell me he's kidnapped some fair damsel, with flaxen hair, and ruby lips, and form divine? Why, he can't do that to her! He shall pay dearly on the field of battle.



The Boy:
But that's just it. He won't fight.



Sir Giles:
Yes. He... He won't fight? Preposterous! The fellow must be an infernal cad. Bit of a rotter, what?



The Boy:
He is not. He's a nice old dragon who likes to write poetry.



Sir Giles:
Poetry?



The Boy:
Yes. You know, verses?



Sir Giles:
How jolly! Ha ha! I'm a bit of a bard myself, you know.



The Boy:
You a poet, too?



Sir Giles:
Yes. No doubt you've heard of my Ode to a Fleecy Cloud?



The Boy:
Well, I...



Sir Giles:
Oh fleecy cloud, O cloud of fleece, up in the sky so high... Oh. Oh, my.



The Boy:
Oh, my.

Father:
Oh, son, I seen it! Up on the bounds it was, all covered with scales and such, and a tail with a sort of hook on it! Now wait until I catch me breath. It's horrible! That's what it is, horrible!



The Boy:
It's only a dragon, father.



Father:
Oh... Only a dragon? Oh! The village! Help! There's a dragon a-coming! Help!



The Boy:
Don't worry, father. I'll have a look at him.

[Benchley is watching a camera man shooting cels of Donald Duck]



Robert Benchley:
Yeah, but he still doesn't move.



Donald Duck:
Just a minute, big boy. Give me time, give me time!


[Benchley laughs in astonishment]



Donald Duck:
Look, I'll show ya. I'll show ya. Now look. First my foot is up here, see?



Robert Benchley:
Uh-huh.



Donald Duck:
Then, it's down here, understand?



Robert Benchley:
Now I get it.



Donald Duck:
Like this...



Robert Benchley:
Yeah.



Donald Duck:
And this...



Robert Benchley:
I see.



Donald Duck:
And that. See?



Robert Benchley:
Sure.



Donald Duck:
When I do it faster, I'm walking. Get it?



Robert Benchley:
Yeah, certainly.
