    • Hazel Elephant: Josephine, you're not interested in anything anymore. All you do is worry about how you look. You're no fun anymore.
      Josephine Giraffe: See? Now you don't even like me.
      Hazel Elephant: Of course I like you! You're my best friend, but I get tired of hearing you talking about your short neck all the time.
      Josephine Giraffe: See?
      Hazel Nothing: See nothing. When I think about you, I don't think about your short neck. I think about you.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Throughout its history (long before this episode aired), the show's house band would strike up We Are Elephants whenever elephants were seen or discussed, but this program marked the only time We Are Elephants was performed in its entirety.
