Kevin

(sneezes)

Oh, sorry Poo fans. I'd advise you to get well away from your radios as I've got a bit of a cold. I caught it in the last adventure and I don't seem to be able to sha..

(sneezes)

shake it. But in the best tradition of radio, the show must go on...

(sneezes again)

Dr Poo

Kevin, do you have to do that.

Kevin

I can't help it Doctor. I've got a co...

Dr Poo

Quick Dana, stick your finger under his nose. There that's it.

Kevin

Ahh choo!

Dana

Oooo!

Dr Poo

Don't shake it on me.

Denis

Reow.

Dr Poo

Don't wipe it on the cat. Use his denim handkerchief.

Denis

Meow.

Dr Poo

She'll wash it out for you afterwards, Denis. Now come on Dana, quit stalling and deal the cards.

Dana

Five for me, five for Denis and twelve for you, Doctor. Are you sure this is how you play poker?

Dr Poo

Well Dana, it's only fair that I as the more experienced player should have a seven card handicap.

Dana

Oh, I don't want to take advantage of you, Doctor.

Dr Poo

That's all right Dana. It's not whether you win or lose that's important. It's how you play the game. Now show me what you've got.

Dana

O I've only got these four aces.

Dr Poo

They're no good to you Dana, they're all different colours. I'll take them.

Dana

Thank you.

Dr Poo

Now, what do you bet Dana?

Dana

Twenty dollars.

Dr Poo

Good and I'll bet thirty matchsticks.

Dana

What does that mean Doctor?

Kevin

Well Poo fans, if you get twenty percent of that, you are much too smart to listen to Dr ah ah ah choo Poo-oo!
