00:00:51(mimics electric guitar) Welcome to our talk show, where we interview different guests.
00:00:58Our first guest today is Martha.
00:01:00So, Martha, I understand you have a new show.
00:01:03I thoughtIwas going to do the interviewing.
00:01:07That was not my understanding at all.
00:01:09In today's show, you'll hear all kinds of talking words: words like "conversation" and "comprehend," "quarrel" and "negotiate." Ah! Enjoy the show!
00:01:31(barks) Daniel, Skits is doing it again!
00:01:35Did he start when you entered the room?
00:01:38Sí.Why is he doing that?
00:01:40Itchy back.
00:01:41Only when we enter the room?
00:01:42Showing off his new worm imitation.
00:01:45Hi.
00:01:46(barks) Helen, can you interpret this?
00:01:49Interpret? You mean you want me to try to explain what he's doing?
00:01:53Yes.
00:01:53I can't tell what he wants, but whatever it is, it's pretty cute in a Skitsy way.
00:01:59I'll call the vet.
00:02:00Maybe she can understand Skits.
00:02:01You know, Martha could just ask him.
00:02:04Of course!
00:02:05That's even better, and it's free.
00:02:07Martha? No problem.
00:02:09Interpreter dog on the case.
00:02:11Skits?
00:02:12The people can't comprehend why you're doing the, you know, the doofy rolling.
00:02:17(barks) Comprehend?
00:02:18Oh, comprehend is when you understand something.
00:02:21It makes sense to you.
00:02:23They don't understand what you're doing.
00:02:24Uh-huh. Yeah, I see. Okay, I understand.
00:02:30Is it worms?
00:02:31Do we have to deworm him? Ay!
00:02:33No. He says he used to have a rubber plum that he played with upside down.
00:02:39Oh, yeah, Plummy!
00:02:40He thought if you saw him doing this, you would interpret it to mean he wants a new one.
00:02:45You want a new Plummy, Skits?
00:02:48(barks "Yes!") Wow. Once it's translated from dog language to human language, it seems so obvious.
00:02:56(barks) Want to carry it home, Skits?
00:03:02(barks excitedly) You're welcome, Skits.
00:03:08Helen, your dog's tongue is all swollen, and it's squeaking.
00:03:13That's a rubber plum, Alice.
00:03:16Dog toys are weird.
00:03:17(squawks): Weird!
00:03:18Well, I'm here to buy something non-weird.
00:03:21Polly wants a seed stick.
00:03:23Seed stick!
00:03:26Uh-uh, no, he doesn't.
00:03:28Allow me to translate from parrot into English: (squawking, whistling) "Me want a mirror." Eesh. Awful grammar.
00:03:37ALICE: He said "seed stick." He was parroting you, and then he squawked, "Me wants a mirror." You know, Martha can translate animal talk, Alice.
00:03:45She told us what Skits wanted, and look how happy he is.
00:03:49(barks) There is such a thing astoohappy.
00:03:59Uh, young lady and Talking Dog?
00:04:02Oh, he probably means us.
00:04:03Hello. I'm Laslo Huckey and this is my dog Slappy.
00:04:06Is it true your dog translates what animals say?
00:04:09Martha understands most animals.
00:04:12Could she tell me what's bothering Slappy?
00:04:14She seems even less happy than usual.
00:04:16Slappy, let's have a conversation.
00:04:19(weary growl) A conversation is a talk between you and me.
00:04:24What's the matter?
00:04:25(low growl) Slappy's unhappy because her ears dip in the water when she drinks.
00:04:30She needs water at tongue level so she won't have to hang her head.
00:04:33(barks) Ah, I get it! That makes sense!
00:04:37I'm a producer at All Fours TV Network.
00:04:40You should be on TV helping people to understand their animals better.
00:04:45TV? Me?
00:04:46If Martha's interested, come to this address with her parents or legal guardian.
00:04:52What do you think?
00:04:53Interested?
00:04:53People have trouble understanding animals.
00:04:56I could really help.
00:04:58Are you sure this is it?
00:05:00"Alby's Shoe Repair, Alden's Barbershop, All Fours TV Network." There it is: Suite b-2.
00:05:10So glad you came.
00:05:11Martha's obviously a very special dog.
00:05:14The All Fours Network shows only animal programs, right?
00:05:17Down here on All Fours, we focus on four-legged animals.
00:05:21Therefore, we enforce a strict no-monkey policy.
00:05:24I like it so far.
00:05:26What's my show?
00:05:27You chat with people's problem pets, then tell people their pets' thoughts.
00:05:31I chat with pets, and then help people understand what's on their pets' minds.
00:05:36(barks) Huh? No, "understand." If you understand someone, you know what he or she means.
00:05:43She thought I was going to stand on her.
00:05:45Well, you certainly helped me understand Slappy's drinking problem.
00:05:49I'd like to help people understand animals' thoughts.
00:05:52So, does that mean you'll do it?
00:05:55You bet.
00:05:56Good dog!
00:05:59Having trouble comprehending your pet?
00:06:02I'm Martha and I can help.
00:06:04♪♪ Conversing with a camel or comprehending cats ♪♪
00:06:07♪♪ Translating things for turtles or having chats with rats ♪♪
00:06:10♪♪ Conversation Dog! Conversation Dog! ♪♪
00:06:13♪♪ Con-ver-sa-tion Dog...! ♪♪
00:06:17That's Me!
00:06:19(barks) Hmm, here's how I'd translate Caesar's thoughts: You snore like a foghorn factory, and he can't sleep.
00:06:28(barks) Let's chat, Cleo.
00:06:31What's on your mind?
00:06:33(meows) Hmm, try to comprehend this: Cleo doesn't want to be an indoor cat.
00:06:39She'd like to run free, get fleas, eat from trash cans.
00:06:43Cleo!
00:06:44Cats and trash belong together, am I right?
00:06:48(audience laughs) (whinnies) Okay, relax. I'll translate.
00:06:54Tom, here are Tony's thoughts: He doesn't like you making him work.
00:06:58He's only two years old.
00:06:59But everyone races two-year-old horses.
00:07:02(chattering) I'm very sorry.
00:07:07Four-legged animals only.
00:07:09(sighs) (bleating) Murray, I don't think camels are more popular than llamas.
00:07:18Do we love llamas, people?
00:07:21(cheering) That's all the time we have for today.
00:07:24I'm Martha the Conversation Dog saying good-bye and keep wagging your tail!
00:07:29What did you think, Mom?
00:07:31I can't say I've ever seen a llama interviewed before.
00:07:34He had a lot on his mind.
00:07:36Can I be on your show?
00:07:37You don't have a pet.
00:07:39Can I bring a parent?
00:07:41Sorry about that, TD.
00:07:42Aw, what is the use of knowing somebody famous if you don't get anything out of it?
00:07:48Truman, why are you staring?
00:07:51You know Martha.
00:07:52But now she's Famous Martha!
00:07:55On-TV famous!
00:07:56Can I have your "pawtograph," Martha TV dog?
00:08:02Now I know how Santa Claus at the mall must feel.
00:08:10Helen, is everything going to change now?
00:08:14What do you mean?
00:08:15I mean, with me becoming famous and the rest of you, you know, not.
00:08:19I don't know.
00:08:20People may treat you differently.
00:08:22It's hard to know what people think.
00:08:23But nothing will change with you and me, right?
00:08:26No, Martha.
00:08:28We'll always be us, no matter what.
00:08:30I only want good things to come out of this.
00:08:32Good night, Helen.
00:08:34Good night, Martha.
00:08:38I'm going to ask Mr. Huckey if I can bend the rules and chat with that ostrich.
00:08:42Hey, where is everybody?
00:08:44Good morning.
00:08:44I have news about the first week's shows.
00:08:46Mr. Huckey, where are the cameras, the problem pets, and that woman who combs me so well?
00:08:52I didn't say I had good news.
00:08:54I just got our first week's ratings.
00:08:56You know what ratings are?
00:08:57Isn't that how they count the number of people watching a show?
00:09:00Yes. Here on All Fours TV, we even know how many animals watch, broken down by breed and weight.
00:09:06Wonderful!
00:09:07So we know exactly how many animals I'm helping.
00:09:10Yes, we know exactly how many. Overall...
00:09:13How many collies watched?
00:09:14I like collies.
00:09:15Collies? Uh, zero.
00:09:17Look, overall...
00:09:19What about Labs? They're smart!
00:09:20You had zero Labs.
00:09:21You didn't look at the ratings.
00:09:23I, uh, don't have to. According to the ratings, only you and your friends watch your show.
00:09:29Huh?
00:09:30No animals?
00:09:32Well, a gerbil in our control room would've been the only animal, but he turned his back and ate paper.
00:09:37So that's it?
00:09:38It's over?
00:09:40No!
00:09:40I have changes here that will save your show.
00:09:43We're ready to go!
00:09:45It's time for Martha's show.
00:09:46Change the channel.
00:09:48HELEN: This is Martha's show, Mom.
00:09:50They made some changes.
00:09:51(rock music playing) I don't know how to interpret these clues.
00:09:59Mind if I chat with the witness?
00:10:01Ma'am.
00:10:02Can we have a little chat about what happened here?
00:10:04(teeth chattering) (baaing) Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
00:10:08(baaing) I understand.
00:10:11She says someone sly sheared the sleeping sheep.
00:10:14If we don't catch them, sheep everywhere will feel...
00:10:17shear terror.
00:10:19(Martha howling over TV) MOM: Crime Scene Doggie?
00:10:23¿¿Qué es esto?
00:10:24Turn it off.
00:10:26Someone shy sleared the sheeping shleepsh.
00:10:29Hmm. Not easy to say.
00:10:31(toy squeaking) (panting) (Martha groans) Why can't I be happy like that?
00:10:37He's happy because of you.
00:10:39That's why you're doing the show, so more people will understand animals.
00:10:43But now it's just a show about driving fast, and they wouldn't even let me stick my head out the window.
00:10:47Maybe you should chat with Mr. Huckey about it.
00:10:51Hmm.
00:10:51Tomorrow, I'll tell him I either interpret what people's pets are saying, or I quit!
00:10:57MARTHA: We need to talk, Mr. Huckey.
00:10:59(cell phone ringing) Oh, just a sec.
00:11:01TheCrime Scene Doggie ratings are in.
00:11:04Oh, my.
00:11:05What are they?
00:11:06The same: Zero.
00:11:07Research shows people don't want to watch any show with a talking dog.
00:11:11I find that impossible to believe.
00:11:13CSDis canceled.
00:11:15They canceled my other shows, too: CSC, CSOandCSSW.
00:11:21What are those?
00:11:22Crime Scene Clam, Crime Scene Ostrich, Crime Scene Sperm Whale.
00:11:27So is my TV career over?
00:11:29That's how I'd interpret this.
00:11:31All right!
00:11:32Let's go home, Helen!
00:11:34(Skits barking) (toy squeaking) So Martha's not special anymore?
00:11:40Nope.
00:11:41I'm back to being just your friendly, neighborhood talking dog.
00:11:45Crime Scene Clam?!
00:11:46Whowouldn'twant to see a clam solve crimes?!
00:11:49Uh, people who own televisions, apparently.
00:11:52If the network got 30 million e-mails, they'd bring it back?
00:11:56I guess they'd have to.
00:11:58I'll see you two weeks from Wednesday.
00:12:00Hey, where are you going?
00:12:02Home.
00:12:03I've got 30 million e-mails to write.
00:12:05Let's see what show they put on instead of you.
00:12:10ANNOUNCER: And now, three more hours ofTwine Kitten.
00:12:15(gasps) Twine Kitten?
00:12:18Who would watch that?
00:12:19Let's go out and play catch.
00:12:26(soft whining) (kitten meowing on TV) Ahh...
00:12:32(purring) Wow! So this is where television comes from.
00:12:40So do you want to interview me?
00:12:42Sure. You start.
00:12:43Do you know what interview means? No.
00:12:45An interview is when one person asks a lot of questions and the other person answers them.
00:12:50Understand?
00:12:52Uh-huh.
00:12:53Like on Martha's talk show.
00:12:54Or how I'm asking questions and you're answering.
00:12:56Hey, doesn't that make me TV interviewer guy?
00:13:00No.
00:13:01You just answered another question.
00:13:03This interview is over!
00:13:05I'm a good interviewer.
00:13:08Except who do I interview now?
00:13:10Me!
00:13:11Who's more interesting than me?
00:13:14Good question.
00:13:16I can't think of anyone.
00:13:17Can you tell me your thoughts about how ants communicate?
00:13:26HELEN & ALICE: Strawberry shortcake, huckleberry pie, How many letters till your luck runs dry?
00:13:32..
00:13:33F-G... How does she do it?
00:13:35H-I-J... What, jump rope so long without tripping?
00:13:37K-L-M-N... No. Jump rope so long without getting hungry.
00:13:41O-P... Shortcake? Pie?
00:13:42Q-R... Let's eat!
00:13:44Whoa!
00:13:46That was great. Who wants a snack?
00:13:48TD: Hey, guys!
00:13:49Look what I got Martha and Skits.
00:13:51Isn't it cool?
00:13:52Oh... yeah... cool.
00:13:56Food?
00:13:57Trust me. Wait till you see this in action.
00:14:01It's a flying squirrel toy.
00:14:03I got it at the air show.
00:14:05(sniffing) I can't stand squirrels.
00:14:08You're going to love this one.
00:14:10Look.
00:14:11You put your fingers in here, pull, and...
00:14:14off he goes! (chittering) (gasps) Holy hot dogs!
00:14:20Wow!
00:14:21(excited barking) I think it's a hit.
00:14:25(chittering) (laughing and barking) Skits, give it!
00:14:36My turn! My turn!
00:14:37Helen! Skits is hogging the toy!
00:14:40(growling) My turn!
00:14:42You guys, you have to share.
00:14:45Hear that?
00:14:46You're supposed to share.
00:14:48(grunting) Ouch!
00:14:50TD bought that toy for both of us, Skits.
00:14:54When he saw this toy, do you think he said, "Ooh, I hope this toy makes Skits and Martha fight"?
00:14:59No.
00:15:00I think, if I may speak for him, that he really wanted us both to have fun.
00:15:05He wanted us to share this toy.
00:15:07Because in the end, that is much more fun than being a big, stinky hog, isn't it, Skits?
00:15:13(low whining) Gotcha!
00:15:19(angry barking) (barking in distance) (groans) I wish they'd call a truce.
00:15:30It's so hard to concentrate with all that noise.
00:15:34So, turn off the TV.
00:15:36Turn off the TV?
00:15:38How am I supposed to do my homework without Tv?
00:15:42(sighs) It's still my turn.
00:15:46(barks) Is, too.
00:15:49(barks) Is, too.
00:15:51(barks) Is, too!
00:15:52Helen, tell Skits it's my turn.
00:15:57Hey!
00:15:58Why did you take it away?
00:16:01We were having so much fun.
00:16:02Skits wasn't.
00:16:03That was the fun part.
00:16:04Martha, I can't believe you're being so selfish.
00:16:08The toy is going up here.
00:16:10(whines) Till when?
00:16:12Till you learn to play nice.
00:16:14What?! That could take forever!
00:16:16I'm sorry, but your bickering is really annoying.
00:16:20Bickering? We weren't bickering.
00:16:22Bickering means you fight about silly things.
00:16:24That's what you were doing.
00:16:26Was not. Were, too.
00:16:28Was not. Were... (sighs) Now you've got me bickering.
00:16:32Do not. Do, too. (groans) We have homework.
00:16:38You guys go play outside.
00:16:39TD's just watching TV.
00:16:41Outside.
00:16:43(barking) MARTHA: No, it's your fault. Hey guys, check this out.
00:16:48(angry barking) Because you wouldn't share.
00:16:52(sighs) Excuse me.
00:16:54I have to break up a quarrel.
00:16:56If you're going to act like babies, I'm going to treat you like babies.
00:17:01Hi, Truman. Hello.
00:17:04Mine!
00:17:05Mine!
00:17:07Mine!
00:17:08Mine!
00:17:09Hey, you guys, let's call a truce.
00:17:13You know what a truce is, don't you?
00:17:15A truce is when people who are fighting agree to stop fighting.
00:17:19Why are we watching this baby show?
00:17:23Shh! Watch.
00:17:24Thank your mom for letting us watch this Dvd.
00:17:28(music plays) ♪♪ When there's more than one ♪♪
00:17:32♪♪ Playing's more fun ♪♪
00:17:34♪♪ When you share ♪♪
00:17:36♪♪ When you share. ♪♪
00:17:38I'm glad Helen took her quarreling dogs somewhere else.
00:17:41Now maybe I can concentrate on my homework.
00:17:44It must be hard to be a dog, especially if the other dog is selfish and doesn't take turns.
00:17:49I know. I can't stand when someone thinks they're the boss of you just 'cause they're bigger.
00:17:55Yeah.
00:17:57Wait.
00:17:57Martha is smaller than Skits.
00:17:59Exactly.
00:18:00Skits is probably three times her size.
00:18:03Wait.
00:18:04You think Skits was the selfish one?
00:18:07Yeah. Who else?
00:18:09Well, you guys? Truce?
00:18:11(groans) I won't fight if he won't fight.
00:18:14(groans, barks agreeably) What did he say?
00:18:17He said, he's...
00:18:19ALICE: Skits is a big bully!
00:18:20Yeah, well, just because Martha's older doesn't makeherboss.
00:18:24You're only sticking up for Skits, 'cause he's a boy.
00:18:27(gasps) What's going on?
00:18:30TD says Martha's the one who won't share.
00:18:33You're quarrelling because of a dog toy?
00:18:35We're not quarrelling, we're fighting.
00:18:38That's what quarrel means.
00:18:40It's when you fight.
00:18:41It's not about a dog toy.
00:18:43It's a matter of principle.
00:18:45Oh, yeah?
00:18:46Well, might does not make right.
00:18:48Oh, yeah?
00:18:49Well, age does not make...
00:18:51Well, I can't think of a word that rhymes with age, but you're wrong.
00:18:54MARTHA: Stop it! Stop it!
00:18:57What is it, Martha?
00:18:58Oh, uh, not you guys.
00:19:00I'm having a quarrel with a flea.
00:19:03And I'm losing.
00:19:04Who do you think is right, Helen?
00:19:06Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
00:19:09You can't ask her. Why not?
00:19:11'Cause she'll take your side.
00:19:12Why? Because I'm right?
00:19:14No, because she's short, like you.
00:19:17You all stick together.
00:19:18You guys are being ridic... short?
00:19:22Since when am I short?
00:19:23I'm just saying.
00:19:25Plus, Martha's a girl.
00:19:26Of course you're all going to side with her.
00:19:28I can't believe what I'm hearing.
00:19:31Helen, what do you think?
00:19:35♪♪ When there's more than one, playing's more fun ♪♪
00:19:38♪♪ When you share ♪♪ (cooing, giggling) ♪♪ When you share. ♪♪
00:19:45Now, what did you learn?
00:19:46I learned that girl puppets are selfish, too.
00:19:49I learned that boys need someone to make them take turns.
00:19:53(Helen sighs) HELEN: And now, TD and Alice won't even speak to each other.
00:20:01I can't believe my friends are quarreling about a dog toy.
00:20:05That's too bad.
00:20:06I remember when I was in fifth grade, I built this model airplane with Dave Delashaw.
00:20:12When it was finished, we couldn't decide who got to keep it.
00:20:15Boy, did we bicker about that.
00:20:17How'd you make up?
00:20:19Hmm, we didn't.
00:20:21Where are you going?
00:20:23To call Dave Delashaw.
00:20:24He's had that plane for 25 years.
00:20:27It's time that guy learned to share. (Skits barks) Back off!
00:20:33Hey! What happened to your truce?
00:20:36It broke.
00:20:38(whimpering) Stop breathing on it.
00:20:41Aw, you're still doing it.
00:20:42Helen, Skits is breathing on the squirrel.
00:20:45(barking) Were, too!
00:20:47You guys, please!
00:20:50Sorry. We're all ears.
00:20:51Good. Let's talk turkey.
00:20:53Turkey?! I love turkey.
00:20:55It's an expression.
00:20:57It means to get down to business and talk about what's really going on.
00:21:00(groans): Oh. Okay.
00:21:02So what's your beef with this toy?
00:21:04Beef?! (groans): It's an expression.
00:21:08It means what's your problem.
00:21:09Sorry. One-track mind.
00:21:11The problem is, we both want it, and we don't want to share.
00:21:14Well, you have to negotiate something or else I'm giving this back to TD. (barking) No! Don't! We'll, we'll negotiate!
00:21:22I swear, we'll negotiate.
00:21:24What's negotiate?
00:21:25"Negotiate" means you talk about a problem and agree on what to do.
00:21:29Okay. We will. We promise.
00:21:32(giggling) Okay, Skits, I'll trade you my favorite squeaky baby for that squirrel.
00:21:40(toy squeaks) Skits! We can't negotiate if you leave the room.
00:21:46Alrighty-roo.
00:21:47How about twosqueaky babies (squeaking) and a rope toy?
00:21:55Martha, are you bartering with Skits?
00:21:57No, I'm not bartering.
00:21:59I'm trying to trade toys for the squirrel.
00:22:01That's what bartering means.
00:22:03When you barter, you offer to give someone something if they'll give you another thing.
00:22:07Oh. Well, then yeah, I'm bartering.
00:22:11But so far, Skits doesn't want to trade.
00:22:14This is my last offer, and then I'm not going to barter anymore.
00:22:19I'll trade you two squeaky babies, a rope toyand...
00:22:28...a rawhide chewy.
00:22:31(barks "Uh-uh") (sighs) Okay. Okay, I get it.
00:22:36You're not interested.
00:22:37But how about if I throw in that!
00:22:42(Martha laughs, Skits barks) Hey! Wait! Wait!
00:22:45(gasps): Whoa!
00:22:48Martha!
00:22:51You guys!
00:22:51You're supposed to negotiate a way to share that toy.
00:22:55We did.
00:22:56I mean, we have.
00:22:57How?
00:22:59By not sharing it.
00:23:00What? Hey! (Skits barks) (Skits barking) Martha?
00:23:08(both growling) (toy chitters) (TD and Alice gasp) Did you see that?
00:23:16I told you he was a selfish bully.
00:23:18Skits isn't selfish.
00:23:20He's just trying to get his turn.
00:23:22(both growling) HELEN: No, you guys, they're playing.
00:23:26At least, Ithink they're playing.
00:23:30(toy chitters) You are playing, aren't you?
00:23:35Yeah!
00:23:37It's a little game I invented.
00:23:39I call it Steal the Squirrel.
00:23:42But you're tugging.
00:23:44That's not sharing. (toy chitters) We're dogs.
00:23:46This is about as "sharey" as we get.
00:23:49You should try it.
00:23:49Give it to Alice, Skits.
00:23:51(barks) You grab the other end.
00:23:56Now pull.
00:23:57And remember, no biting.
00:23:59(toy chitters) Well, don't just stand there.
00:24:02Run!
00:24:04Go get it!
00:24:06(TD and Alice laughing) (toy chittering, Martha giggling) Fun, isn't it?
00:24:13(both laughing) Of course, you shouldn't play Steal the Squirrel with a dog you don't know.
00:24:19They might try and steal your hand.
00:24:21I'm glad everyone's called a truce.
00:24:24There's just one problem.
00:24:26What?
00:24:27I want to play, too.
00:24:30(laughter, Skits barks) (toy chitters) Can I have a bite?
00:24:38Nope. Now, wait.
00:24:40Don't be hasty.
00:24:42Let's negotiate.
00:24:43I'll do whatever you want. I'll sit.
00:24:45Please?
00:24:47(gasps) I'll lie down.
00:24:50I'll roll over.
00:24:52I'll list off all the meats in reverse alphabetical order.
00:24:56I'll beg.
00:24:59(whimpers) Come on, Helen. What do you think?
00:25:01It's not negotiating if you don't say anything.
00:25:05(sighs): Okay.
00:25:07Here's what I think.
00:25:08You eat your food, and I'll eat mine.
00:25:11Mmm.
00:25:13(Martha whimpers) Here you go.
00:25:16I'd have eaten it all myself, but you're a very good negotiator.
00:25:21(Truman and TD chattering) Oh, hi.
00:25:24I brought some clips from my show.
00:25:26Oh, well, roll 'em.
00:25:27Comprehend? Oh, "comprehend" is when you understand something.
00:25:31It makes sense to you.
00:25:32"Interpret"? You mean you want me to try to explain what he's doing?
00:25:35"Negotiate" means you talk about a problem and agree on what to do.
00:25:39"Bickering" means you fight about silly things.
00:25:41Sorry. Big negotiation.
00:25:43We decidedIget to ask the questions, and he gets to say good-bye.
00:25:48Too late, the show's over.
00:25:49Oh. Good-b...
