Embedded text or transcriptListen to me, o Flook, I have a message for thee
From Rufus? How is he? Is he safe? Is he...
He is safe so far, o Flook, but he begs you to come to him. He lives in fear of El Scourge's displeasure
Mr. Ali, I think I can persuade your wife to let me go!
If she says so, that's all right with me
No..no...I won't part with you!
