Gabe and Maurice

Gabe loves Ellen's lovebird, Maurice. Maurice doesn't return the sentiments--perhaps it has something to do with Gabe climbing on the counter and knocking his cage to the ground, I can only imagine how skittish Maurice would be if he'd actually been in the cage.

This is sort of how their relationship goes:

Gabe wonders: How do I get that yellow ball of fascination?

Gabe: Rats, just a tad too high. (Gabe always says 'tad', of course.)

Gabe: Thanks Mama!....wait, owww!
Maurice: OK kid, you want claws? You got claws.
