Close-up of the Shoe Goblin holding a shoe to his ear.
Shoe Goblin: "The shoes tell me! The laces be my eyes, the insoles be my ears, and the tongues be, well, they're my tongue."
Steve: "Tongues? Blech!"
Shoe Goblin: (giving the shoe to Steve) "Ye dare to mock me? Then hear for yourself!"
Steve: "Wait! I do hear something..."
Shoe Goblin is secretly talking into a walkie-talkie.
Voice from shoe: "You stink"
Beaver: (pulling out another walkie-talkie from the shoe) "Hang on - this is just a walkie-talkie hidden in a shoe!"
Shoe Goblin SNATCH!'es the shoe back.
Shoe Goblin: "Enough! Ye have, uh... passed the test... I'll take ye to... the SHOE!"
[To be contd.]
- Although the Shoe Goblin's "the shoes tell me!" trick is proven a hoax, he did somehow know that Beaver and Steve were looking for the greatest shoe ever made.
