          Bye Bye, Bark Bark

          Randall Peltzer: Honey, this is the gentleman who sold me the Mogwai.
          Mr. Wing: Sold? An interesting choice of words. You have taught Mogwai to watch television?! I warned you that with Mogwai comes much responsibility, but you would not listen. And you see what happens?
          Randall Peltzer: Hey look, I didn't mean it.
          Mr. Wing: You deal with Mogwai just like your society deals with all of nature's gifts. You do not understand! You are not ready.
          Mr. Wing: He has something to say to you.
          Billy Peltzer: You mean you understand what he's saying?
          Mr. Wing: To understand, one has only to listen.
          Gizmo: Bye Billy!
          Mr. Wing: Maybe one day, you will be ready. Until then, Mogwai will be waiting.
          Randall Peltzer: Sir, before you go, I want you to know I am truly sorry for all this. I want to offer you this. There's one. There's one other one but it's an invention of mine.
          Mr. Wing: Ah, smokeless ashtray.
          Randall Peltzer: How did you know?
          Mr. Wing: Man at gas station try to sell me. Latest word in technology. Sure will come in handy.
          Gizmo: Bye bye, bark bark woof woof.
