Hi, Mrs. Lemon? My name is Bud.

I used to live next door here,

a long time ago.

That's her bunny.

I haven't heard from her. She hasn't called.

And then we lived together in California.

when you came to California to visit us?

Maybe. It's been such a long time.

I don't remember.

But maybe I did visit, once or twice.

I used to play in the backyard all the time.

We had a pool at my house,

but it wasn't nice.

- I would go in your pool with Daisy.

- With Daisy?

Yes, she would let me swim in your pool.

We would go in there all the time.

- Yes.

- She liked it a lot.

- Yes.


I have to get going now.

These are the bunnies?

Yes, pretty much. They're almost full-grown.

Around one, two months.

What's the longest a bunny can live?

For five to six years.

- Five or six years?

- Yes.

- That's the most they can live?

- Yes.

Even if you feed it special food

or something?

No, they won't live more than

five or six years.

- All bunnies? Even this kind here?

- Yes.

Okay. Thanks.

You looking for a date?

You change your mind?

- Thanks.

That's your name? Rose?

- That's a nice name.

- Thank you.

I wasn't really driving...

I wasn't driving around

looking for anything like that.

No? Well, you found me.

You want to just have lunch with me?

That'd be nice,

but I need to make my money.


Come on, it's time to go.




That's fine.

Let's go.

Open the computer.

- Where did you say you're from?

- Laroux.


Yes, sir?

Come on. Roll it out.
