(Doors close and focus on Crow and Gypsy)

Gypsy: Mmm.
Crow: Uh, Oh yeah. Okay, um, so the Pilgrims first came to America in a gigantic green and yellow moving van.
Gypsy: Moving van.
Crow: Until they bumped into a Plymouth, uh, and then they got out of the van and took turns starving.
Gypsy: Starving.
Crow: Uh, yeah. Starving. Uh, huh, I don't know why they didn't just pop open a pack of freeze-dried smoky links like Joel does.
Gypsy: Pink fudge. (Joel enters)
Joel: Hey you guys.
Crow and Gypsy: (As together as possible) Hey Joel Hodgson.
Crow: I was just taking the liberty of explaining Thanksgiving to Gypsum(sic).
Gypsy: Thanksgiving.
Crow: Yes. Uh, Joel Hodgson, we don't get the part after when they sat down with the Indians and ate mace.
Joel: Uh, no, no, it's not mace. Uh, it's maize. Maize is, uh, a Native American word for corn.
Crow: You mean they would spray corn in each other's face during protests?
Joel: No. No. No, uh, but that's pretty close. Uh, I gotta- listen, I gotta go work on the, uh, satellite reflector shields, and, uh, you keep teaching Gypsum(sic) about Thanksgiving. I think you're doing great.
Crow: Okay.
Gypsy: Thanksgiving. Miles Standoff.
Crow: Hey, Cambot. Bring it in a little. (Gypsy chuckles, and Cambot closes in on the two bots.) Yeah. Hee hee. Now this is the best part. Then Miles Standoff and the Prince-Queen Pokawatha loaded the turkey catapults and started pelting the Nina, the Pinto, and the Santa Maria.
Gypsy: Santa Claus!
Crow: Uh, uh, yeah, Santa Claus! Uh, and that's why we have to start shopping, uh, right away after Thanksgiving!
Gypsy: Oh!
Crow: See, that's, that's how it works. (Gypsy chuckles.)
