Biter Bit

'She expects me to fetch a tiny stick out of there?'
 'I mean, where's the bottom gone?'

'Perhaps if I try drinking some of it ...?'

 'I'll call it then - Here, twig! Here, twig!'
 'Maybe if I fetch this leaf instead ... '
 'Just bloody come here!'

(Yes, annoying, isn't it, Ted, when you call something and it ignores you?)
 'I'm drowning!'
 'I'm swimming!'
'She'll have to make do with this leaf ...
 ... cause I'm never doing this again!'
