Not Quite Threatening Enough


Shadow: I can't believe this is our last moment in England.
K-9: Not quite. They don't begin boarding for an hour yet.
Shadow: Still, we've had such a wonderful time!
K-9: Yes, but everything ends eventually.
Shadow: I suppose. Still, I want to savor our last moments here.
K-9: Not me. I want to eat up, and get to the gate.
Shadow: What's the hurry?
K-9: When they call for pre-boarding, I want to be first in line.
Shadow: You're just angry they made us ride with the cargo last time.
K-9: Well, I did think you could have threatened to Exterminate them more convincingly.
Shadow: Perhaps the tea can bolster my threatening presence.

When Something Is Lacking


Shadow: Finally! British Fish and Chips!
K-9: Now if only they had ketchup.
Shadow: Still, that unique flavor of British fish you can't get in America.
K-9: I still think it would be better with ketchup.
Shadow: You can buy a packet of ketchup at the counter.
K-9: It's not real ketchup. It tastes different somehow.
Shadow: So you want an authentic British meal with an American condiment?
K-9: Either that, or with a pickled onion.

Tea Time & Cathedrals


Shadow: What is it about tea time and Cathedrals? 
K-9: They do seem to go together, don't they?
Shadow: I suppose, after a morning of philosophical discussion...
K-9: Or Bible teachings...
Shadow: Or learning about the architecture of the buildings...
K-9: The history of how worship styles changed through the centuries...
Shadow: Studying the famous people associated with them...
K-9: Admiring the artistry of the stain glass windows, paintings, wood carvings, tombs, plaques...
Shadow: Phew. I'm exhausted just thinking about all that.
K-9: Time for tea?
Shadow: Absolutely.

Of Miracles & Sushi


Shadow: Phew: This cake was tough to cut.
K-9: Yet definitely worth it. Now we have two slices to eat instead of one.
Shadow: Maybe that explains the feeding of the five thousand. Jesus split the fish and loaves into lots of little pieces, and presented them in a way that everyone was satisfied.
K-9: So you're saying that Jesus was a Sushi Chef?
Shadow: Possibly. Was the fish cooked?

A Reminder of Home


Shadow: I'm confused. 
K-9: I know.
Shadow: First I'm presented with the Barbecue Chicken Sandwich.
K-9: Then a Soda that claims lineage with San Diego.
Shadow: Why must I be inundated with American influences in England?
K-9: Well, there is the Belgian Bun. That gives the meal an International flavor.
Shadow: I guess Greggs must cater to Brits who don't want to eat British.
K-9: Or wayward travelers hungering for home.
Shadow: I'm glad we're above such base, Human emotions.
K-9: Agreed, Diabolical Killing Machine.
Shadow: Really? Enough already with the name-calling!
K-9: Sorry. It must be the Soda. The bubbles make me tipsy.
