Liam: Oh, I’m well aware. I have heard it rumoured that on the other side of this isle lies a beach whose pens run around natural.
Liam: We would have to cross the island by foot, a journey of several days through treacherous jungle.
Liam: I have a plan. We mount a wild steed of our choosing, and it sure whisks us away across this valley.
Liam: What we must do is bind banana leaves to our arms and it will give us the additional lift that we need.
Liam: My, my, we can’t let that get infected. We’ll have to pack it with bees.
Stevie: Bees? You wanna put bees on my open wound?
Liam: They will clean it, like in the days of old.
Stevie: No! They used maggots to clean wounds!
Liam: And what are maggots if not wingless bees?
Liam: Ah, give us a look!
