Yes, Herr director.

Would you get the girly dog and

the snake so we could do this?

Absolutely, sir.

And, sir, I can't wait for you to see

the trick I just taught the lizard.

Very complicated.

I'm amazed I was

able to accomplish it.

Get the dog.

Yes, sir.

Who are you?

Are you on payroll?

I'm Eddie. I'm like the

assistant animal trainer.

Good for you.

So, is that it?


Yeah. That's Pete.


Pete. Pete the lizard.

You wanna hold him?

No, no, no, no.

Can I see him, though?

Yeah. Sure.

Wow. He's so lizardy.


Pretty good-looking guy.

Hey, I think he likes you.

Oh, no. No.

Why? Why? Oh, the humanity.

What and why

are you yelling?

Frizzy, the bichon fris,

has been dognapped.



What are you doing?

You stole my cookies!

You're not supposed

to eat the bag.


I guess I don't mind

sharing with a friend.

Hey, what are you doing?

What are you doing?



Cut it out.


Oh. Hey, hey, hey.

Interesting dog.

He's not mine. Yeah.

He's iust some weird dog.


Yeah. I don't even like him.

Hey, Katie! You coming?

Well, whoever's weird

dog it is, I like him.


Bye. Bye.

That was the first time

she ever talked to me.

Am I dreaming?

"We want $1 million

or the bichon fris gets it. "

$1 million?

Why would we pay a ransom

when the wussy dog hasn't

shot one frame of film yet?

So we're talking a re-cast?

Marco, set up a casting

call for tomorrow.

We have to find a new star

for our film. Yes, ma'am.

Sal, you lost the dog,

cost us a day. You're fired.

Wait, wait.

Excuse me. I'm sorry.

But to tell the truth, it was my

assistant who was in charge of Frizzy.

He's the one

who left the door unlocked.

No. I'm in charge

of the lizard.

I never even met the dog.

I don't train dogs.
