“Gee, Butch,” says Homer. “It’s swell to hear you playing again! How about Lazy River? Remember that?”

Butch moves a chair next to Homer. “Sit down, Homer,” says Butch.

Butch starts playing “Up a Lazy River.”

“Wilma phoned,” says Butch.

“Wilma?” says Butch. “What did she want?”

“You,” says Butch. 

“Aw, why can’t they leave a guy alone?” asks Homer. 

“Because they’re fond of you, that’s why,” says Butch. “What made you leave the house, and get them all worried?”

“Oh, ah, they – they got me nervous,” says Homer. 

“How?’ asks Butch. 

“Butch, it’s nothing. I don’t want to talk about it,” says Homer.

“How’d they get you nervous?” repeats Butch. 

“Well, they – how keep staring at these hooks,” says Homer, “or else they – they keep staring away from them.” 

“You mean -” begins Butch.
