"Jon! Help! Get it!"

"What the hell's going on? Why are you on your desk?"

"Get it! It went under the couch!"

"Get what?"

"The mouse!"

"You have got to be kidding me, Stephen. A mouse? You're a thousand times its size!"

"You're not very good at catching mice, are you?"

"Hey, it only took me fifteen minutes. At least I wasn't jumping up on the desk."

I love the title of this one.
