Beaver and Steve are walking down an alley when they are confronted by a mugger BRANDISH!ing a knife!
Mugger: "Grr! Gimme yer wallets!"
Beaver: "Oh no! We are confronted by a villain!"
Steve: "Don't worry Beaver, I'll get us out of this with a little trick I picked up from nature's most cunning creation:"
A brown, slug-like creature is shown surrounded by blue rays of light and multi-colored stars.
Steve (off stage): "THE SEA CUCUMBER"
Sea Cucumber: "Purr!"
Steve SPEW!s digestive fluid and organs on the mugger!
Beaver: "You - You expelled your digestive organs onto him?"
Steve: "To distract him while we make our escape!"
The mugger is laying on the ground, covered in digestive fluid and organs.
Steve: "Nature has so much to teach us."
Steve: "But don't you need those? You know, to live?"
The mugger is now standing, dripping digestive fluid and entangled by a pink digestive organ.
Steve: "Well technically speaking they are not exactly 'my' digestive organs..."
Beaver examines the stitched up wound on his abdomen.
Beaver: "This explains why I woke up in a bathtub full of ice this morning..."
Beaver: "I knew I recognized that ileum."
Mugger (off stage): "Ew! Partially digested wood shavings!"
- Beaver can live without digestive organs
