Excuse me.
Oh! How do you do? We interrupt this program to bring you a special report.
The Grandmother Diamond has been stolen! The precious stone was taken from the Nowhere Museum by Muriel Bagge! Yes? Did someone call my name? The dangerous felon was nice enough to leave her driver's license, birth certificate and family photos at the crime scene to aid the police.
Now, isn't that helpful? Courage, can you get the door? - Muriel Bagge? - Yes? You have the right to remain silent.
Is that you, Cousin Harold? You're under arrest for stealing the Grandmother Diamond.
Oh, Harold.
Maybe these will help you see things a little more clearly.
We found them at the scene of the crime.
Why, you're not Harold! One hundred and fifty-seven people witnessed you steal the diamond - No! while your husband waited in your getaway motor home watching TV.
- Officer, there must be a mistake.
- There's no mistake.
See? There you are with the diamond.
Oh! You have the right to remain silent! Yes, my little handyman.
Now we can afford to get you that operation.
Aye! Looks like we have neighbors.
Let's show them how we treat our neighbors.
Great sound effects! Oh! Good, Mano.

They can take my identity.
But when they take my Courage, they've gone too far! Oh! Great sound effects.
