    'We've been in this enclosure together for quite a few years now and I have never seen you engage in any blue-sky thinking, you've never really jumped out of the box. You are content to wander around and munch your way through some greenness.'

    'Mrs. Rhino, your behaviour is unacceptable. I had such high hopes for you, but I am afraid our ways must part now.'

    'And where will you go, my dear?'
