The Girl: Put your shirt on.
White Boy: He hasn't got his shirt on.
The Girl: He hasn't got a shirt.
White Boy: He can have mine.

The Girl: I don't know why you are telling him all this. He can't understand. He doesn't know what a ladder is. I expect we're the first white people he's seen.

The Girl: We're going on our own tomorrow.

The Girl: That's best.
White Boy: No.
The Girl: Suppose he wanted to do something? Or, something happens? Suppose he - tried to - suppose he went off and left us?
White Boy: No he won't! He likes being with us.
