Woof, woof!

Woof, woof, woof!

Nice try, fleabag.

Zeus!

Get outta here!

Blcch,

Dog germs!

Do I smell

some dinner?!

Breakfast.

I knew that.

You've been up

all night again, huh?

Sorry,

it's just that

I've been working

on this Melody

And it's somewhere in there.

I just can't find it.

What's this?

Breakfast burrito.

Cool, thanks.

Let me see

your face.

Excellent, b+.

So, what's in

this burrito?

Eggs, refried beans,

onions, jalapeos,

Peanut butter, mozzarella

cheese, pineapple chunks.

Oh, yeah,

and lettuce.

So it's nutritionally

balanced.

Oh, shoot!

My burrito!

Ugh!

Zeus, psst.

C'mon, c'mon.

Good boy,

eat it up.

Thank you,

thank you.

Oh, good,

you finished yours.

I'll go get you

another one.

Woof!

And you two stay

At the enrichment program

all day, okay?

you-are-understood-mother.

Ditto.

I'm not in the mood for

the principal calling me

Telling me

that you two-

What is that?

Lovely.

Jordan, cow bone!

Woof, woof, woof!

Hey!

Ahh!

Cow bone.

Cow bone,

cow bone!

Zeus, cow bone!

Zeus!

Zeus, cow bone!

Zeus, cow bone!

Cow bone!

C'mon, go on!

Go on!

Pfft...

I'm so sorry.

Let me help.

No, that's okay.

Oh, jeez.

Here, let me help.

Just how do you

propose to do that?

I'll put your flowers

back in the ground here.

Wait, wait, no.

Actually, I have a very

particular way of doing this.

I like to put the roots

in the ground.

Oh...

Very...

You new in

the neighborhood?

Yeah.

Just renting

for the week?

Actually we'll be here

'till the end of July.

Great!

I'm Terry Barnett.

Mary Beth...

Dunhill.

Mary Beth.

Right.

I'd love to stay and chat

in my present state

But I'm late

for work.

That's okay,

I'll just replant

your flowers.

Oh, no, that's alright.

Is there anything

I can do?

Uh, no.

How 'bout

your laundry?

I'm a great

ironer.

If you can just

restrain that...

Zeus.

Yes!

Thank you.

Me, Terry, you?

Judith.

You?

Nora.

You're late.

I've been frantic,

don't ask.

What if Roxannes

not there?

We've never been

late before.

What if she gets

eaten by a shark

Sitting there

waiting for us?

What if I'm sorry, Becky,

I had a rough morning?

Oh, yeah?

Well, it's about

to get rougher.

We've been rejected

by the Pason Foundation,

And the manheim,

And the delphi.

Great!

That leaves

the Rockland Grant.

If I don't get that,

I'll be-

Stocking goldfish

at the local store.

Very funny,

Claude.

I wasn't joking.

Perhaps we should strive

for that grant together.

"the sum of the parts

being greater than the whole."

I don't think so.

Somehow I think our research

philosophies are slightly different.

Oh, I didn't know

I ever had one.

Let me know

if you change your mind.

He should be

working with sharks.

He'd feel

more at home.

If I don't get

major funding soon

Roxanne's gonna

be in a pool

Doing sound recognition tests

for the rest of her life,

Probably for him.

Good morning, guys.

Hey, Phil.

Let's play the sounds of

the other dolphins for Roxanne

And see if

she runs away.

Okay, Roxanne,

I'm comin', sweetheart.

We'll do a body check,

check for rake marks.

We'll see if she's been

playing with other dolphins.

These are from our

last session, right?

Right.

Burritos?

Do you smell

burritos?

Yeah.

You.

You're so cute!

No, this dog

is not cute.

This dog is

the hound from hell.

C'mon, you Zeus,

whatever your name is.

Get up here,

sit down, sit!

Sit, stay.

Stay.

Zeus!

Yo, Zeus!

Zeus!

Zeus!

I think

I got Roxanne.

Great!

I'm cursed.

He's so cute.

He's not cute.

You stay

right there

Or you're gonna get
