Willie: I'm gonna go to the library and check out some things.
Buddy: What for?
Willie: I wanna look at some unsolved crimes. It's for a script I'm writing. I thought maybe a caper or a whodunit might be fun to try.
Buddy: My bike was never found...
Buddy: Does he have a name?
Nancy: No, but he's had his shots.
Kate: That's what is known as a non sequitur, Buddy.
Buddy: Looks more like a golden retriever, to me.
