La Ferassie cave, 46,000 years before the present. About lunch time.
Krogg: [using foot to push bellows fanning the camp-fire] Krogg see funny thin people with big foreheads yesterday.
Thog: Thog see them too.
Krogg: Krogg think they not human. Face too small. Weak. We better.
Thog: Hargh hargh hargh. Stupid funny people.
Grorg: Grorg shake funny thin man by arm. Arm break. Hargh hargh hargh.
Thog and Krogg: Hargh hargh hargh.
[long pause. THOG checks the fire and starts pushing the bellows]
Grorg: Grorg bored.
Thog: Thog bored. Thog hungry. Thog want MEAT.
Krogg: Krogg want MEAT and WOMAN.
Grorg: Hargh hargh hargh.
Thogg and Krogg: Hargh hargh hargh.
[another long pause with more bellows-pushing]
Krogg: Krogg thinks epoxy ready. Put fire out. We glue points to spears. And make gum.
Thog: Thog think stupid funny people don’t know about epoxy. Hargh hargh hargh.
Grorg: Grorg think they not smart. Hargh hargh hargh.
