Just like it's normal

to talk to yourself.

There he is!


-Hi, Joseph.

Looking good!

Mary. You made it.

You look beautiful.

So do you.

Well, handsome.

I've missed you.

You're a little late, you know.

I was starting to worry.


That's our fault. We're always late.

"We" who? You were driving.

She was such a big help to us

these past several months.

-Wasn't she, John?

-Sorry, big guy.

I know how great she is,

but I'm taking her back.


There's something

I want to talk to you about.

Of course.

And, just warning you,

it might be a lot to take in.

Mary, it's our wedding feast.

Of course. You can tell me anything.

She's here!

Sorry, what did you want to talk about?

It can wait.

Let's enjoy the party.

So, any new escape plans, kid?

What's the point?

I'm always gonna be stuck on the

same old wheel with the same old view.

What's wrong with the view?

I know it feels like

we're just going in circles.

-We are.

-Look, kid.

We're mill donkeys.

We grind grain. We don't carry kings.


Should've listened to you

and given up a long time ago.

What is happening?

Kid, it's my leg. Go get help.

These good-for-nothing animals.

What is it now?

Just what I needed.

-Are the gates open?




What are you doing...

Kid, get out of here.

Wait, but I thought you said...

-What about you?

- | ' | | be fine.

| just hope you find

what you're looking for.

I don't know what to say.

You're welcome, kid.

Now, get going.

No, you don't!

You're free, kid. Make it count.


Where do you think you're going?

Get back here!

Look, I'm not gonna be here long.

Runaway donkey! Somebody grab him!

Sorry, hon. Looks like I'm leaving

sooner than I thought.

Never forget me!

You broke out!
