(Ryder and Kalau bust out laughing.  Kaua pretends he's annoyed but gets caught up in the moment and starts chuckling.  This only causes Ryder and Kalau to bellow uncontrollably in laughter, and the three cousins fall off the sofa, still laughing as they dogpile each other.  Suddenly, with a start, Kaua sits up on the living room floor.)

Kaua:  I'm serious as a haht attack.  Guys, we bin heah befo! And I tink I know wheah.  I just don't know when. It was a long time ago.

Ryder:  Dats easy fo me!

Kalau:  Me, too! 

Kaua:  Okay, our minds stay empty.  We wait for a few minutes now...

(The parents, grandparents, and family matriarch--G-GMA, or great-grandmother--enter the living room and find the three infants fast asleep with big smiles on their faces.)

G-GMA:  Chee!  Look how cute, yeah?  I wondah what they dreaming about?
