It looks like we are missing a few dialogue boxes for Farley. Let’s see if I can remember what they were supposed to be:
Elly: Why aren’t people content with what they have, Farl? Why do we always want more?
Farley: Speaking as a dog, I don’t want more. I want less. When you have the food that is so terrible nobody in the family wants to eat it, I don’t want it my dog bowl. I want less. When you get angry and start yelling at me, I want less. There is one thing I want more of and that’s more of my name. I love it when you call me Farley and not Farl.
Elly: Why, when we have everything we need, do we still want the biggest, the best, the loudest, the fastest, the most exciting….
Farley: Speaking as a dog, I want the biggest meat bone, but it doesn’t have to be loud or fast or exciting. I like it better when it’s quiet, slow, and boring.
Elly: Why do people throw away something perfectly good – for the sake of something new?
Farley: That’s a good question, but I am glad they do. I get so much good food from other people’s trash cans.
Elly: If money isn’t the root of all evil – maybe insecurity is.
