[Loud growling sounds, radio static and a slight cave-like echo accompany each comment]

Matt: You know, this would make a pretty good movie.
Ant: Wait, what?
Matt: Seriously, I mean we have a dragon–

Amy (from a distance): Hey!
Stephen: –in distress.
Ant: Good save.

Amy: Only if you keep shouting like that.
Matt: I’m not shouting!
Yangchuanosaurus: Grrr!
Matt: Shit.
Amy: A dragon and three farmboys in distress.

Stephen: Not to spoil the moment Trish, but since when can you fly jumpers?
John: I’d be the one flying the jumper; she’d be the one leaning out the back dangling half a cow in front of– whoops, [loud teeth-on-metal noises and enthusiastic muffled cursing from Trish] bad dragon, no eating the cavalry.
Matt: I told you we needed more C4.
