"Listen,下载🚟 Doctor,下载📼" said Jip. "You were wondering just now what to write the Cats'-Meat-Man about.

"Well,激流🌴 what have you done with the matches,txt🎲 Doctor?" called Dab-Dab. "They were always in your coat."
"Well,激流🏩 never mind,乱世😘 we'll forget it,激流🚂" said the Doctor. "It's only a boyish escapade."
