Chilly: Doc, ya gotta help me!
Doc: Hi, Chilly! What's wrong?
Chilly: Oh it's awful! Look at me! I'm white as a sheet!
Doc: Chilly, you're a snowman. You're supposed to be white.
Lambie: We tried to tell him!
Doc: It's Will and Donny. And they're coming this way. Toys, go stuffed!
Stuffy: You got it, Doc.
Doc: Stuffy! You're moving.
Stuffy: Oh, right. Got it. Not moving. Starting now.
Doc: Donny! Will! What's wrong?
Will: Doc, it's Boppy!
Donny: You gotta save him! He's got a hole and he's losing air!
Will: If you bop him, he doesn't even pop back up!
Doc: That sounds serious. But if you let me examine him, I'll do everything I can to fix him.
Doc: Thanks, Lambie. I couldn't have done it without you guys!
[air hissing]
Doc: Oh, no! That sounds like Boppy sprung a leak again!
Doc: You know, a doctor's job isn't just to help you after you're hurt.
Chilly: It isn't?
Doc: Nope. A doctor's also supposed to help you not get hurt in the first place!
Boppy: Oh, what are the Pricklethorns?
Doc: The pricklethorns are when you prick yourself on a thorn or something sharp. Like my dad did this morning! See this rose bush here? It has thorns. When you got near it, you pricked yourself and got a hole!
