A: (carrying a heavy load) Oh, no, I'm very busy. I'm working.
G: Why are you working so hard?

G: Goodbye.

G: Oh, please, Ant, help me! I'm cold, I have nothing to eat.

L: Ha-ha! Silly mouse! How can you help me? You are so little! All right, you may go.
M: Thank you, Mr Lion! Goodbye!

M: What's the matter?
L: My leg is in the net. I can't get free.
M: I can help you.
L: Oh, Mouse, you are too little! You can't help me!
M: Yes, I can! I'll bite the net. (bites the net)
L: Now I can get my leg out!

L: Now I understand it. Thank you very much!
