Roger: No. I want to know.
Anthony: *Sighs* Okay, as wewe know, Nikki has a four mwezi vacation, which started a few days ago. I told wewe it would end in January the second, 1957. Does this help you?
Roger: So this mwaka is....
Roger: Okay, wewe didn't have to shout! Anyway, why do we need Nikki with us? We're the only ones that know about Duke's whereabouts.
Anthony: Two reasons. It would be easier to find him, and.. The More, The Merrier.
Roger: Fine, let's get her. Only swali is, where could she be?
To answer their question, Nikki was buying new tires for Meadow's Lightningbird. She wanted to take care of Meadow's car while she was away.

The three ponies left the bodyshop.
Nikki: What did wewe mean kwa vacation?
Roger: We need your help.
Anthony: wewe see, there's an old stallion that worked on a railway with us twenty one years zamani in Germaneigh.
Roger: And we want to bring him back here to work with us on our railway.
Anthony: Can wewe help us?
Nikki: Well, I might as well since wewe helped pay for the tires on my sister's car.
Roger: Let's get going. First, we will take a plane to London. From there, we'll take the eurotrain going underground, into Maris France. Then, we get on another plane, and we get to Duke's house in Oden.
Anthony: Our old railway wasn't that big, but we brought goods to other ponies living there.
Roger: As well as giving them rides.
Nikki: Interesting. Let's go.
