TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - (MG, with Cassie in a book store) "Whoa... $350 for an old children's book?"

(CW) "The Three Billy Goats Gruff? Wow... I haven't read that since I was a kid! [pause] No pun intended..." (SO) "This book holds the first illustrations of that tale, done by a team of talented artists." (CW) "Cool! Hey... Something looks way familiar... [The illustration of the bridge has a face on the edge... a Troll Face!] Oh Lord, Matt... Don't tell me YOU were one of the illustrators..." (MG, with a toothy smile) "U JELLY?"
