Heather: Hey. John. This looks a party. [Yeah!] Thanks for inviting me.
John: No problem. Glad you could it. Hey. Have you met any of the famous so far?
Heather: Uh, no. Who exactly?
John: Well, there is Gregorio Zuttlemisterburger . . . [Who?]. Ah. They call him the "Grip" for short.
Heather: Who in the is he?
John: You've never heard of him? [No.] He's the world famous trainer . . . He's never met a snake he couldn't train to dance and hiss at the same time.
Heather: Seriously? Where is he?
John: Uh, he's the guy over there in the purple jacket and green pants. He probably has a snake or two with him tonight.
Heather: Huh?
John: And then there is Georgina, the Great.
Heather: Georgina . . . and great for what?
John: Are you serious? You've never heard of her? She is the world's greatest wrestler. I mean, World champion. She's the petite woman next to the fireplace with the bright dress and the tennis shoes.
