: Well whatever you do folks, don't be lightin' any fires to warm us up. Seems Jeanne is a mite skittish around fires. Mention one smoldering ember and in she goes screeching into the tossing river. And me, being the gentleman, goes right in after her forgetting the rule of sparrows and coconuts.
: Hey, some of that rum would sure go down real nice too.
How grateful I am to you for plunging yourself into the raging river on my behalf. Mais certainement, you are small on the outside, but big on the inside. A veritable Gallahad! Here - have a glass of cognac to warm you.
Under ordinary circumstances of battle and strife I am known to be a fearless warrior, female though I am. It is SO unaccountable that I have this strange reaction to the thought of anything BURNING! Oh dear, even the word makes me quiver with fear. But to abandon my mission when it was so close to success - -ah, how can I ever face my dear uncle Captaine R. D'Vark with such an admission! I can never go home now. I must stay in Mohicanland forever. I must establish anew my reputation for valor.
Let us go remove the rest of the cognac from the raft.
