“I knew there was a risk coming out here, but you PROMISED we would be okay.”

“Alright, princess, time to remove that crown and tighten your bootstraps. It’s going to take some intricate maneuvering to get to the helicopter if the ground begins to break.”

“That you would provide for me! Warmth, clothing, seafood buffets, a BED!?”

“We have a bed.”

“We have a cot. My back has been hurting for weeks. I thought you said you loved me?”

“I did love you, when I thought you were down to earth.”

“Well, I’m about to be sucked deep INTO earth if you don’t get us out of here, pronto!”

“This is not an injustice, princess. Maybe you should have read my entire dating profile before responding.”
