Ribbit

This was how the start of Chibi-Robo went for me.

Chibi-Robo can not talk, only hold up a sign for “yes” and “no,” so I had to speak for him.

(Chibi-Robo and Telly emerge from a metal contraption into the living room. A birthday party with Jenny and her parents is in progress.)

Telly: We’re here to make you happy.

Telly: I’m Telly. And this here is Chibi-Robo.

Father: Amazing!

Jenny: Ribbit!

Dog: Woof! Woof!

Telly: Oh! Hey, is this a birthday party?

Father: You got that right!

Telly: Uh-oh, Chibi-Robo! It looks like we’ve come to the party empty handed. We need to find a present for Jenny, and fast! Oh! How about that flower, Chibi-Robo?

Chibi-Robo: [ no ]

Telly: Really? Are you sure? I think it’s perfect for Jenny…

Chibi-Robo: [ no ]

Telly: Really? Are you sure? I think it’s perfect for Jenny…

Chibi-Robo: no

Chibi-Robo: no

Telly: Really? Are you sure? I think it’s perfect for Jenny…

Chibi-Robo: yes

Telly: Well then, I’ll leave the rest to you Chibi-Robo.

[ Chibi picks up the rose and walks over to Jenny. ]

Telly: Chibi-Robo - give the rose to Jenny!

Chibi-Robo: [ no ]

Telly: Huh? You’re not going to give it to her?

Telly: Chibi-Robo - give the rose to Jenny!

Chibi-Robo: yes

Jenny: [blushes] Ribbit ribbit ribbit!

Telly: You got 20 Happy Points!
