(the Sultan's guards reach for the diamond to play catch)
Sultan: Wait a second! Look, I like a good game of catch as much as the next sultan, but can't you use a softball, instead of my super valuable diamond?
Tall Guard: But the diamond is so pretty.
Sultan: That's why I'd hate for something to happen to it. Come on, use a softball.
(pulls out a softball)
Short Guard: But we really, really want to use the diamond! We'll be so careful. Please?
Tall Guard: I'll be your best friend.
Sultan: Okay, but no more than five minutes. I'm timing.
