Nala: Have you thought this through? Do you really think we can do without the TV for a month?
Jabir: There’s no other way, Nala. Kadir’s been looking forward to this picnic for months and I can’t think of anything else we could forego.
Nala: But, Kaia – she won’t eat a thing without her favourite cartoon playing. This won’t go down well with her. You know that.
Jabir: Haha! I do! Literally nothing will go down her throat.
Jabir: I could take her over to Suleiman’s next door. Surely he’ll have a cable connection. Kaia can eat her meals there.
Nala: No, it’s not fair to do that. I wouldn’t freeload.
Jabir: Well…I’ll tell her stories, while I feed her, Nala. We’ll find a way to work around this.
Nala: Can’t we cut out the chicken instead? Or at least cut back on it?
Jabir: I wouldn’t. I’d want us all to stick with balanced meals, as far as we can. Healthy body, healthy mind, remember?
Nala: Yeah. And the babies need all the energy they can get. Growing kids…
Jabir: Hey! Growing parents too! It’s like we’re going to war every day!
Jabir: Trust me, the hustle and bustle at home is no less than what you have downtown.
Nala: I don’t doubt that for a second.
Jabir: Kadir’s going to be thrilled to hear he gets to go on his picnic…
Nala: Sure he will! But we should let him know what his sister won’t have as a result. Not to make him feel sorry or regretful for wanting what he does…but just…just
Jabir: Just so he always always always looks out for her.
Jabir: They’ll be a team Nala. They’ll always be a team, I promise.
Nala: I promise they will too!
