..should I pick?
They are all so handsome!
Slow and steady, mi amigo.
My turn! And she's off. Little guy on the left, first one out of the gate.
Hey, Gull, can I go for you?
Who's it going to be, ladies and gentlemen?
Red or black, black or red, red or black?
Whoo! So fast.
Skip, skip, skip! King, king, king. It's going to be close.
And the winner is...
Rush, rush, rush. It is no good.
Slow and steady, she wins the race. Yes.
No, he's just messing with us. Slow don't win nothing.
And I'll prove it.
-Race you around the world.
Racing is my favourite part of checkers. Here I come!
Gull, the Pickle, she may seem fast, but she will not win, yes?
Aw, but I want her to win. She's so good at checkers.
Gull, let me tell you the little story.
-It is called...
-I like the sound of that.
It is a fable called The Tortoise And The Hare.
Once upon the time, a little speedy rabbit,
she was challenged to the race by the sweet but slow tortoise.
Ha, that tortoise don't stand a chance. Lap three!
The hare, she was fast, but she was also full of herself.
As she raced, she said, "I am so far ahead,
"I have time for the nap, yes?"
And you know what happened next?
She woke up refreshed and won by a landslide. Lap four!
Nooo. She lost.
For you see, slow and steady, she wins the race.
Really? Are you sure about that, Merl?
Si! For it is the power of...
And there is no way some slowpoke turtle can ever beat a speedy
bunny like moi in a race.
That is a book of lies.
What? She does not lie. She is...
I don't think so, so, so...
Then do the proving of it, yes?
Win the race against the tortoise.
I'm a fable. Uh!
OK, I'm ready! You ready? I'm ready! Hoo-ha, hoo-ha, hoo!
The turtle shell, she is heavy, yes.
No. I'll be fine.
Once I'm back on my little turtle feet. Yoo!
-Let's go, let's go, let's go.
WHOOPIE CUSHION RUMBLES
And she's off, ladies and gentlemen.
Our favourite to win, Pickle, AKA the hare.
Passing over furniture, dancing the Charleston...
Na-na, na-na, na-na-na!
Passing the same potted plant for the billionth trillionth time.
She even defies gravity itself.
She's even got time to discover the meaning of life.
How does she find the time? Nailed it!
I'm right behind you.
Doing great, tortoise!
And she's headed for the finish line.
Eh, maybe I've got time for one game.
Or lots of games. Yay!
This can't possibly come back to haunt me.
Yes! I win!
No, you lose.
Come on, Pickle.
I'm not across the finish line yet. Oh!
How is this possible?
It is the power of...the FABLE.
No, it isn't. Rematch.
OK, you're ready? I'm ready. You ready? Three, two, one...
WHOOPIE CUSHION RUMBLES
Past the potted plant.
-Past the toilet.
And all the way to victor...
Ha-ha! Where is everybody?
Merl, I made it. I won the race.
HE LAUGHS, HE COUGHS
The race? It was many, many decades ago, yes.
You went so fast you travelled through time to the future,
where I am the smartest creature in the universe.
Future Gull meant to do that.
Not only that, but Gull won the race when you slipped out
of the temporal dimension of us, yes.
I lost again?
It is the power of the FABLE!
Slow and steady, she wins the race.
Never. One more rematch.
Not too fast, not too slow.
Just beat that tortoise, that's all you got to do.
-Don't fall asleep!
-Huh? Who said that?
You've got to win, for us!
-The hares! We are the quick, we are the unsteady.
Against the tortoise, we always lose.
We always fall asleep by the finish line,
as is foretold in the...
Oh, no. Not you too.
-I won? I won!
-I won. He-he-he.
-No. You lost. Again.
You fell asleep as foretold by...
-Don't even say it.
-Hey. Uh... Why are you eating a shrub, Pickle?
Meh, I read it's what tortoises eat.
Maybe if I eat enough I'll win a race.
Someday. I could really go for a pep talk right about now.
A pep talk? That's my espeticality.
You see, when I was young, I was a tortoise and I could not fly, right?
And then Barbara said, "Nu-uh!" And I said,
"Hey, you don't know me!" But I really wish that I could fly.
But I couldn't. The end.
Hm. Well, first of all, you can fly. You're a bird.
Ahh! I am?!
Wait, that's it. That's it!
ROACH SQUEALS ANGRILY
Whoops, sorry about that.
AND the hare, the bunny, the Pickle, she has lost.
-It is the power of...
Fine. You and your fable...
SHE SIGHS You win.
What is this? The Pickle,
she does the admitting of the defeat?
Yes! This, it has never happened before. Ever!
The Pickle, she has lost.
But the Merl is the real winner here.
Woohoo! I win! I win!
I finally win!
In the face of you, world!
Gosh, this book sure is powerful. Look at this one.
The squirrel who laid the golden egg.
Oh, yeah. Oh, let's read that.
Uh, no. It is nothing.
HE LAUGHS NERVOUSLY
There is no power of the FABLE.
I don't know, sounds pretty powerful to me.
No. It is just a FABLE. No...
Once upon a time there was a squirrel who laid a golden egg.
Woohoo! We are going to eat like kings. Oh, I love these fables.
That... It is nothing.
IMITATES MERL: No, it is the power of the FABLE.
