Jose: !Que raro! What in the world was that?

Dalia: I think I read about that creature once. It's the final stage of metamorphosis of an alien life form that evolved from a rare fungus when its original planet's atmosphere suddenly met with a drastic increase in radiation which was caused by....."

Otis: It's a sloth.

Catrina: Well I think it's the ugliest thing I've ever seen - so it figures that we'd see it on this trip. What's next? Three-headed monsters, giant mutant cockroaches, human devouring slime-slicks... We could have just stayed at home and turned on the TV to see this stuff. But nooooo, not in Mr. Figinblossom's class. We have to experience the world's ugliest and nastiest things face to face.

Tina: Well, at least we have a secret weapon - your mouth!

Wally: I think you two should make like the sloth a little - and relax.

Catrina: Oh, listen to Mr. Peacemaker. If I recall, Smiley, you and Sarge went a round or two just last week.

Jose: !Silencio! Onward troops!
