Julu: Hello Nikuko, you are looking wonderful this very morning.
Nikuko: Hello Julu, why you are looking odd I do think!
Julu: My eye disappears from my head I think, this is no wonderful 
Nikuko: I did not say this is wonderful to have an eye disappear!
Julu: And my leg too hanging by a thread! Nikuko, where are you?
Nikuko: Oh dear you are half-blind Julu! Julu: You may call me 
Half-Blind Julu! But I am all blind Nikuko!
Nikuko: You are all blind? You are All-Blind-Julu?
Julu: And you are All-Blind-Nikuko!
Nikuko: What, I am all blind?
Julu: Can you see anything here? Can you see anything at all?
Nikuko: I hear your voice!
Julu: Say something, anything!
Nikuko: I can see perfectly well, Harold.
Julu: I have all my limbs, Maud. Do let me adjust myself.
Nikuko: I am absolutely blind here. Further, I cannot hear anything.
Julu: Further, I cannot breathe and I do not have diabetes.
Nikuko: And yet...
Julu: And yet I have gout, do I not.
Nikuko: You do not, Julu, you do not have anything!
Julu: Maud, you must move slightly to your left, thank you.
Nikuko: Harold, I will not budge an inch!
Julu: Maud, you are not looking properly or you would move!
Nikuko: I am looking just fine, thank you!
Julu: As I said I cannot breathe and there is no air here.
Nikuko: There's nothing to look at anyway!
Julu: You're not even trying!
Nikuko: I am so, I'm trying as hard as you are!
Julu: You aren't even mouthing anything! Stop twisting!
Nikuko: I am losing all my limbs! I absolutely am!
Julu: Adjust yourself!
Nikuko: I am adjusting and adjusting myself! I can't adjust more!
Julu: You are adjusting yourself in a very wrong way!
Nikuko: What time is it? Look at me, what time is it?
Julu: It is 10:30 and you have just lost your head!
Nikuko: Ha ha ha I have lost my head over you!
Nikuko: Why Harold what ever is the matter?
Julu: Maud I need a time out! I have lost my leg!
Nikuko: And I have lost my cunt!
Julu: I have lost mine too!
Nikuko: Now we will sing a very sad song about losing things!
Julu and Nikuko:
  Alone among the prims
  We have lost our limbs!
  We cannot ride the course
  When we have lost our horse!
  Take back the day and night!
  Restore to us our sight!
  Look at us when we beg,
  Please return our leg!
Julu: No one will take us serious!
Nikuko: We must appear delirious!
Julu: This world is far too hazy!
Nikuko: You must think we're crazy!
Julu: Now we will sit down in a muddle-puddle and think about things!
Nikuko: Why hello Jennifer, do come join us this fine summer day!
Jennifer: I would love to play today, I say, I'll stay!
Julu: And hello Travis, and how are you?
Travis: Why hello Julu and Nikuko! I have lost my eye, my cock, my 
Nikuko: It must be a thing going around.
Julu: There's no other explanation!
Jennifer: Yes, a thing! I've lost my head over it!
Nikuko: We've already said that one!
Jennifer: But it's true! I've lost my head! I'm dead, I said!
Nikuko: Maud, spread out a little!
Julu: Harold, For once tighten up!
Jennifer: I'm dead! I'm dead cold and I'm dead!
Travis: I'm breathless!
Nikuko: You can't breathe anyway!
Julu: You can't breathe at all!
