Narrator: Questioning the recruiter. . .
Aardman: So. . . what are the benefits like?
Thurl: Quarters and meals, full medical. . . the usual.
Aardman: Do you cover elective cosmetic surgery?
Thurl: Just reconstruction for injuries suffered in the line of duty.
Aardman: What if I accidentally get shot in the nose?
Thurl: If you snore through that thing, I'm sure some friendly fire could be arranged.
