SCRUFF DOG: I'm just going to crawl under the bed and sleep here because I am a cat.

VALETTE: Are you sure? That looks cold and lonely and there's a nice big bed with blankets and people to snuggle with.

SCRUFF DOG: No I'm fine, just leave me here.

VALETTE: Okay, but if you want into the bed in the middle of the night I won't help you.
