Little Collins stands up on the table. "Hey guys...I said look what I made!!"
Mark starts sobbing again too, suddenly really missing detective green.
LITTLE ANGEL: Oooo! What a nice volcano!
ANGEL: . . . well . . .
. . .
. . .
*makes a magic pass, and Mark is on the island*
COLLINS#2: *sees Mark appear* WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?!
THAT GUY: Like, chill, man. *eyes Mark critically* Dude, you REALLY need to, like, get a tan.
COLLINS#2: *snickers* Well, you're right about that...
"Yeah..." Little Collins agrees. "It is a nice valcano isn't it?" And with that he picks up the gravy. "Watch this everyone... I'm gonna make it explode!!"
Mark blinks, staring at, the man fondly known as 'THAT GUY' "Ummmm"...he mutters before spotting Detective Green. "AHHH!! OH MY GOD!!" he screams, running over to him and hugging him tightly, sobbing against his chest.
ALL OF HEATHER-MUN'S KIDDIES: *cheer Little Collins on*
NINA: *by way of that mysterious third eye all mothers and babysitters have, makes her way rapidly into the kitchen* Oh, no you don't! *takes the gravy away* Now eat properly, or you'll go to bed without dinner. *eats a piece of cranberry jelly*
LITTLE ANGEL: Awwww...*starts eating 'properly'*
LITTLE MIMI: But we were having fun....
NINA: Fun for you, mess for me. Eat and then go color or something.
WILSON: Better start on the ham now.
ANTHONY: . . . *is a veggie*
WILSON: If you don't, we won't be -
NINA: Back before New Year's Day! YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!
WILSON: *anime sweatdrop* I was going to say EATING before New Year's, but whatever.
LITTLE MIMI: Can we color on the walls?
LITTLE HEATHER: Yeah!
DAPHNE: *jumps into the room* Take me ouuuut tonight! Meow...HA!! *crotch grab*
LITTLE MAUREEN: *stares at the crotch grab in wonder*
DAPHNE: *snaps out of it* Woah! I'm sorry...it's a reflex...
NINA: Nobody said you had to eat it. Go play with Anthony, or something.
ANTHONY: *shrug* ((does anybody know precisely why he's a veggie? I know he is one, but I'm not sure if it's an animal-cruelty thing or a health thing or if he's just not big on meat . . . ))
NINA: NO. Anyone coloring on the walls will be smacked and put in time out, AND YOU WILL STAY THERE.
WILSON: Well, that was . . . random.
COLLINS: *gives Nina a look*
LITTLE MAUREEN: *to Nina* YOU'RE A BIG FAT MEANIE!
DAPHNE: *walks away in a daze*
EVAN: Yep. Random.
NINA: Sweetheart, I'm only a meanie to you. I'm sure Evan thinks I'm very nice.
ANTHONY: . . .
NINA: And Collins, you can stop looking at me like that. I'm not big on tofu, okay? Actually, I think tofu tastes like leftovers from Resurrection City.
WILSON: From where?
NINA: Resurrection City. It's my mom's refrigerator. She puts food in dead, and two months later she takes it out covered in new life.
