We are Chipmunks, Chip-Munks.

Chipmunks can't talk either.

Well our lips are moving

and words are coming out.

This is not happening.

I am not talking to Chipmunks.

So .. how's that working for you Dave?

How do you know my name?

-I'll do that one. We read your mail.

By accident.

- You really ought to pay that utility bill, Dave.

You ever heard of credit rating?

What is this thing?

Stop that. Turn that off.

- Sorry.

He fell out of a tree at birth.

Can all animals talk?

I believe fish

have this type of sign language .

Hey Dave, do all humans have housing

that smells like sweat sock?

Dave likes to wear,

dirty underwear

Nice to meet you.

Now get out from my house.


We talk.

Huh, which makes me want

you out from my house much more .

Creepy, unnatural,

some what evil.

I liked him better when he was unconscious.


Don't do this, Dave.

We can't crawl right through this door.


Were we disturbing you?

- That's not singing, this is singing.

This is amazing.


Everyone inside

There you go.

- Thank you.

Alright, here's the deal. You guys

No. Wait!

I can live with that.

- What about TV privileges?

Ok, but not after 7.

Don't tell your animal friends,

Because, I don't wanna..

come home and find a

bunch of rabbits or skunks on my couch.

Filthy creatures, Dave

We never associate with them.
