Balloon Man

Rock Lady


Wander: When I see someone who's a-needing, I just gotta help! It gives me this feeling that starts down in my left toe, rises up through my gutty works, makes my heart all warm and toasty, goes up past the dangly thing in my mouth.

Sylvia: Uvula.

Wander: And ends at the top of my head! It just feels so good.

Sylvia: You rescued a baby, you saved a man's life, you stopped a thousand year war. I get it, you're a helpful guy.

Wander: Oh Sylvia. You're making me blush.

Sylvia: But you are going to helpful us to death! Please, no more helping, and if you must help someone, then help me help us to get outta here.

Wander: Sylvia, you're glowing!
Sylvia: This? I think that's from the radioactive sewage.

Wander: See? That's the other nice thing about helping folks. Sometimes they help ya right back.
