Steve: "Y-You live on... Fear?"
Moth: "Oh, did I say fear? I meant..."
Moth: "BOOGA BOOGA!"
The moth RUB RUB's his stomach.
Moth: "Oh yum yum, your fear is tasty like chocolate cheesecake. I can tell I will grow very fat while I am living here..."
Steve SWIPE!'s the Heavy Book off the glass; the moth FLIT!'s away.
Moth: "Ha ha! Free! Now I can head for my true goal... The MOON"
The moth flies towards Beaver, who is coming with a candle and wearing a sleeping hat and pink bunny slippers. He looks sleepy and is RUB'ing his eye.
Moth: "To the moon!"
Beaver: "Now now, what's all this commotion?"
Moth: "To the moooo..."
The moth's wing catches fire from the candle with a WOOMP!
Moth: "Oh! Augh! The beautiful light! It burns! IT BURNS!"
Moth: "The mooooooooon..."
The moth falls next to the candle with a SIZZLE.
[Meanwhile, on the moon...]
Moth Navigator: "Sorry sir, agent X4421 didn't make it..."
Moth Commander: "What happened?"
Moth Navigator: "Candle, Sir..."
Moth Commander: "Dammit! How many more agents do we have to lose before we can defeat this menace? How many??"
- The moths are revealed to have a secret base on the moon, which is why they all want to get back there.
- Moths are in fact green and purple, but here are drawn brown so not to clash wih the colour of Steve's eyeliner.
- The Heavy book contains a picture of an anvil, and probably more heavy things.
