An hour later

Eggzorcist: "You promised I could have a bird!"
Mrs. Hatter: "Sigh. Well, a promise is a promise. But don't bring it here in the balcony. It makes Fluffy nervous."
Eggzorcist: "Cool! His name is Matthew."

A couple of days later

Mrs. Hatter: "We're going to have a party tomorrow. I've invited my friends, Kelly's fiancee, Ms. Bratz's new friend and a nice a doctor I met the other day. I'll need that table in the living room."
Damien: "Oh, that's fine. Dad bought a new table and some other decorations and they should arrive today. We've got plenty of time to arrange the furniture. Sneezy and Merv will come to help."

"Decorations"

Mrs. Hatter: "That must be the ugliest table I have ever seen. So it'll fit right in with that hideous chair your dad has. And what's with the shield and that... that... whatever it is?"
Damien: "Dad got them from an online auction. They were cheap."
Mrs. Hatter: "I would have never guessed. Now don't let your sister see that spiky thing."

Sneezy and Merv

Damien: "So Sneezy, that pal of yours, Merv, is he always as useful?"
Sneezy: "Pretty much so, but at least he keeps me company."

Visit from the police

Tommy: "Hello, I'm Detective Tommy. I'd like to speak with Mr. or Mrs. Hatter... What's with the warrior stuff here?"
Housekeeper: "I'm sorry, I'll move them aside."

"Madam, there's a detective here to see you."

I didn't see her

Mrs. Hatter: "I think she returned one of my cats a couple of days ago. I didn't see her, but the housekeeper did."
Tommy: "Could I speak to Mr. Hatter?"
Mrs. Hatter: "Sure, but you'll need to go upstairs, he hates climbing the stairs. Short legs, you see."

We didn't see her

Tommy: "Hello, I'm Detective Tommy. I came to ask you when you last saw your neighbor, Ms. Pinky."
Mr. Hatter: "We have a neighbor called Ms. Pinky? How strange."
Damien: "I think she's the one who brought one of mom's cats back a couple of days ago, but I've never seen her."
Sneezy: "Me neither. I've heard her a couple of times on the other side of the hedge, though."

The housekeeper did

Tommy: "So you seem to be the only person who saw Ms. Pinky."
Housekeeper: "Eggzorcist saw her too, but I don't know where she is. You know, there are strange things going on in this house. I don't have any evidence, but there's definitely something funny going on."
Tommy: "There isn't much I can do, if you can't be more specific. Call me and let me know, if you come up with something. I'll need to go now and interview other neighbors."

Worries

Mrs. Hatter: "I didn't like that detective. Why did he ask so many questions? How should we know where our neighbor is? We don't even know her properly."
Mr. Hatter: "But did you notice his hat? Very nice piece of work, very nice."
