Mrs. Turner: It’s so nice of you children to help me like this.
Matt: It’s fun! I’m mowing down grass monsters with my whirly-ray blaster.
Mrs. Turner: I wish you’d let me pay you.
Mandy: Thanks, Mrs. Turner, but getting paid would make it seem too much like work.
Matt: Yeah, it’s way too hot to work.
Mandy: But it’s just right for giving these bush buffalos a haircut.
Mrs. Turner: Can I at least offer you some lemonade?
Mandy: Lemonade is great fuel for buffalo trimming.
Matt: And grass-monster mowing.
Matt: Wow! This really is powerful fuel! I can feel my energy pack recharging.
Mandy: And my buffalo scissors are powering up!
Mrs. Turner: Thank heavens for good neighbors.
Mandy: Especially for good neighbors who make good lemonade!
