Bedtime, Lucy! >
-ANIMALS: Hello, Lucy!
What kind of story would you like to hear tonight?
What can I choose from?
Well, I know a dangerously dramatic story.
We've got a fabulously funny story!
And I know a lovely love story.
MONKEYS: A love story? Yuk!
I don't think Lucy wants to hear a love story.
-Bet it's boring.
-No, it's not.
-BOTH: Bet it is!
Why don't we have a vote?
ALL: Yes! OK.
If you DON'T want to hear the love story, raise your hand or trunk now.
And now, those who DO want to hear Georgina's story...
That's three in favour and three against.
- What about you, Boris? - Well, actually...
I WOULD like to hear the love story.
Georgina, please tell us your story.
Thank you, Lucy. This is the story of Ronald and Rosie.
Ronald the rhino was strong and tough.
He wasn't scared of anything...
It's Victor the crocodile. He's mean and nasty!
Mean and nasty, eh? Well, so am I!
Why does it always happen to ME?
'But Ronald the rhino wasn't always tough. One day, Ronald saw Rosie.
'She was everything he'd ever dreamed of - tougher than a tornado,
'with a sweet smile and lovely long eyelashes.'
-Shall I ask Rosie if she'd like to bash a boulder with me?
She likes you.
Yes? Did you want to say something?
I, um... I thought we could, er...MIGHT, er...
If you don't mind, we could, um...
-We could WHAT?!
-Nothing. It's nothing. Sorry.
I thought you were someone else.
'Suddenly, Ronald wasn't so tough any more.
'He liked Rosie, but he didn't know how to show his feelings,
'so he went to Audrey the Agony Ostrich for help.'
-Audrey...can I have a word?
-Ronald! Yes, of course.
How marvellous to see you! How can I help?
Well, I have a problem. It's like this.
I've just met a beautiful rhinoceros. Her name's Rosie.
-Oh, how lovely.
-I want to be Rosie's friend,
-but I'm too shy to talk to her.
-Don't worry, Ronald.
The solution's very simple.
Give Rosie some flowers.
I'm sure she'd like that.
'So Ronald picked some flowers.'
I hope she likes the flowers.
Maybe she doesn't like flowers.
Of course she likes flowers. I hope she does.
I've brought you a flower posy. Rosie-posy. Get it?
-Where are they?
AUDREY: Oh, Ronald, you need a plan.
Um... Yes, I know!
You must build a nest. BOTH: A nest?
Yes, a lovely, romantic nest like the weaver birds.
# Yabba dabba da! Babbity, babbity ba ba! #
'So Ronald built a nest.'
# Dabbity, babbity ba ba ba... #
Hi, Rosie. Look what I made...
-just for you.
-For ME?! Oh, Ronald, you shouldn't have!
Oh, Ronald! It's lovely!
-You're too heavy. I'm sorry, I didn't mean, um...
There MUST be a way.
That'll do the trick.
Rosie, O Rosie
Wherefore art thou Rosie?
My dearest rhino Rosie
I'm sorry I ate your posy
And the nest was not that cosy
But I love your great big nosey!
Are you saying I have a big nose?
Yes. Well, no. I mean...
your nose isn't SMALL. Um...in fact, it's quite big.
But I think it's cute.
-I've never been so insulted in all my life.
-Come back, Nosey...Rosie!
I didn't mean to! Rosie, please!
'Audrey was running out of ideas.'
Oh, I've got it!
-You must be Rosie's hero.
Yes, you must rescue Rosie.
Rescue her? Rescue her from what?
-But, Audrey, it won't work.
Rosie's a rhino. She's not scared of anything. It's no use.
I'll just have to be a very...lonely rhino.
'Ronald felt very sad.'
Oh, Rosie, oh, Rosie,
if only you knew.
'Then, something happened -
'something awful AND scary AND dangerous.'
Help! Argh! Help!
-Are you all right, Ronald?
-Oh, Rosie, you rescued me.
-Oh, that's OK.
-I was supposed to rescue YOU.
You can rescue ME...next time.
Next time?! Oh, great! Uh...
Er, Rosie...would you like to, er...bash a boulder with me?
Why, I'd love to, Ronald.
And so Ronald and Rosie lived happily ever after.
-And the tick birds?
-They lived happily ever after, too.
Ohh, I've had enough of this lovey-dovey stuff.
Yes, so have I. Let's play a game!
-I know a good game.
-What is it?!
-What is it?
-BOTH: Oh, no!
BOTH: Bleugh! Goodnight, Lucy.
ALL: Sweet dreams.
