Jetta: Oh, my sweet Maccy-waccy! I am so proud of you for trying to keep Cybo from going in the water. But Cybo is just a toy. I can always get another toy, but there's only one Mac, and I love you!
Vendor: Oh, wait! The paper is free, not the newsstand!
Mac: Guys, I've made an important decision. It's time I show Jetta that Cybo's not the most amazing dog in the world, I am.
Mac: Did you see that? That dog can do everything. No wonder she's so crazy about him.
Jetta: (excitedly) Come on, Cybo. Come on boy. (normal voice) Come on, Mac.
Jetta: It's a Cybo Pet, the most amazing electronic dog ever invented.
Mac: (meekly) Woof.
Clifford: I don't think he can hear me. I'll have to bark louder. Ow! Whoo-ooh-ooh!
Emily Elizabeth: Hey, Clifford is singing.
Charley: He's good.
Jetta: Good and loud.
Clifford: Wow, it seems like Vaz hardly ever comes outside anymore. Hey, maybe if I start playing, he'll come out and join me.
Emily Elizabeth: I can't believe Vaz isn't here yet. He loves doing these kinds of projects.
Jetta: He doesn't like doing anything anymore except watching TV.
