"Splendid,整版🔋 Quip,整版🐎" said the Doctor. "I congratulate you. Now I must be getting up. I've a frightful lot of work to do. Don't forget to tell Speedy I'll meet him on the ship at ten. Good-bye! Oh,电影💾 and would you mind asking Dab-Dab,整版😻 as you go out,整版📑 to clear away the breakfast things? I'm glad you came. You've given me an idea. Good-bye!"
"Doctor,浦团⚾" cried the gull,浦团💞 "we held off the ship as long as we could. But the stupid sailors,浦团🚝 not knowing we were trying to save them,浦团🏩 turned hoses on us and we had to give up. The ship is terribly near now."
"All right,浦团🈳 Speedy. Thank you,整版㊙" said the Doctor.
"Indeed?" said the Doctor. "I would like very much to meet him.""Well,电影🚘 it's an animal of some kind,整版💡 isn't it?" said Jip. "But where's its head?" and he gazed down the long sloping back that stretched in a flat curve in front of them for a good thirty yards.

"I thought I'd never come up again,浦团🔅 and even when I did I nearly drowned before I found the string in the dark and scrambled,电影📜 gasping for breath,浦团📭 out of the vat.
"They say rolling,浦团✈ fertile country,浦团⚡ waving corn and sunny hilltops,浦团⛵" the snake replied. "That is what I have heard. I was not there to see. Mudface,整版♻ the turtle,电影🌕 will tell you all about it."
"And I have no doubt,电影💰" the Doctor ended,浦团🚡 "that this slaver who took away the woman's husband was no other than Jimmie Bones,整版👮 the man you are after."
"Lor' bless us,电影⌚ Doctor,整版🎂 but you do get yourself into some comical situations! Who would think to see John Dolittle,浦团🚊 M.D.,电影📔 heminent physician of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh,整版🌱 bein' pulled through a mud swamp in darkest Africa by a couple of 'undred yards of fat worm! You've no idea how funny you look!"
"I don't just know,电影😡" said the Doctor. "I suppose because they're too costly. With any one of those pearls you could buy a house and garden."
