Hey everyone, DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER.

Peitho

Rough day at work?

You can say that again.

Peitho

Rough day at work?

Hehe.

Having a jam session with Apollo tonight.

You bring your reed pipes. I'll bring my lyre.

Why do I always have to play the reed pipes?

Because I'm better than you on the lyre.

Yeah, right. I invented it.

Well, I'm the god of music.

If you're such an awesome god of music, why didn't you invent the lyre yourself?

Oh no you don't. I need you to escort Adonis down to the land of the dead.

But it's my night off!

I. Don't. Care.

We'll jam tomorrow, Hermpatrol.

That's it! That's our new band name. Hermpatrol.

HERMES

On my way, Lord Zeus.

HERMES! WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING AN iPHONE IF YOU NEVER RETURN MY TEXTS?

On my way, your lordship.

Lost his winged sandal. Again.

Peitho

Where was the last place you remember seeing it?

On my foot.

Peitho

Why don't we ask Hephaestus to make you some new ones?

No way. Those are my favorite sandals.

Pan

Whoopsies. I might have borrowed them.

WHAT??

Pan

Sorry, Dad. There was this really rad costume party last night, so I borrowed your sandals. But I may have lost one while skinny-dipping with the nymphs.

You remind me of me. ;) I'm sure the Nereids can help retrieve it.

I've been texting you for hours. WHERE ARE YOU?

Sorry, Lord Zeus. My iPhone was accidentally on mute.

Get over here before I singe your nose hairs with lightning bolts.

Right away, sir.

Ever notice that your name sounds like a disease?

Ever notice that you are a disease?

Touché.

Maia

I miss you, pumpkin.

Miss you too, Mamma Maia!
