Sylvia: Look, buddy, I know you're jazzed and all, but today was totally nuts, and I really need a solid shut-eye sesh. (her perspective of Wander) Think you can lock up the chatterbox for the night?
Wander: Of course, so sorry.
(He finishes his sentence by scrunching his lips together. Wide shot of them)
Wander: (through mouth) See? No talking.

Wander: I'll just be sittin' here. (pauses, reaches into his hat) Just playin' ma' banjo!

Close-up of Wander as he hears the sound of chirping birds; pan quickly to a nest in a tree, which holds three of them. Their mother flies in, carrying a worm for them to eat.

Brief shot of the crickets as each one gives a wink. Back to Wander as he stomps off; cut to his feet as he trips, causing him to spill them all.

(Cut to a sandy portion as Wander runs by, he bumps into a sleeping moose and yelps, before zooming off again. Camera follows him as he runs, his face slams past a tree branch, causing his eyes to tear a bit. He yells and runs past another tree branch, which gets caught in his mouth. He spits that out and yells again, but stops himself. He falls down out of frame, dropping his hat. Cut to Wander as he bounces down a cliff; at the bottom is a field of thorns. He lands in that; he stands up, body entirely covered in them as he screams. After stopping himself, his hat lands on his head and he zooms off.
