Skunk-Ape: To be a monster, children have to be afraid of you. But as you’re the only kid here, you’ll have to practice on this mirror.
(Howie is doing a scary pose.)

(Howie is trying to do both at the same time and it’s funny.)
Skunk-Ape: More scared! More scary! More sca– WHAT, THAT’S IT! Oh, nope, you lost it.
