Lim: I have a FASCINATING lesson for you today, <Character>! It is one of the fundamentals of our physical world! SCIENCE!

Lim: So, as I was saying... Velocity is a vector measurement of the rate and direction of motion.
(While scratching his head) Lim: A vector is a mathematical quantity that has both a magnitude and direction.
Lim: Got all that, <Character>?

*Lim turns around*

Lim: ... <Character>?

*You are shown with your eyes closed*

<Character>: The cheese is ripe in the ocean, Mommy.
Lim: <Character>!
<Character>: I understand completely, Lim. I CAN grasp the fundamentals of physics, you know.
Lim: Yes, yes. But I crafted this visual aid just for you. You don't want me to waste all that hard work, do you?
<Character>: ... I guess not.

*Lim is now holding a turtle and rabbit in both arms*

Lim: This is The Rabbitizer 6000 Mach 2.
<Character>: Ooooh, sounds fancy! What's it DO?
Lim: In layman's terminology, it goes really, really FAST!

*Lim pulls back his arm holding the rabbit*

<Character>: But don't you have access to REAL rabbits?
Lim: But- but... this one is ROBOTIC! A robotic rabbit! How can you say "Use a real one?!"
Lim: This is a MILLION times better than a REAL rabbit!

*Lim holds out his arm with the turtle*

Lim: Oh, and this is Cysero's carrier-turtle. He uses it to deliver messages, for some reason.
<Character>: Awww, it's so cute, with its little mail-bag strapped on its back!
<Character>: I bet it's adorable when it's plodding along!

*The turtle falls asleep*

*Lim pulls his left arm back*

Lim: So, ANYWAY, to show you how things go fast and slow, we're going to have these two race!
<Character>: Can I be on Team Turtle? Gooooo Clyde!
Lim: Clyde?
<Character>: A turtle by any other name will go as slow.
Lim: Back to the demonstration...

*The turtle and rabbit are placed behind a starting line*

<Character>: This is going to be awesome!
Lim: On your mark, get set...
Lim: GO!

*The rabbit bolts from the starting line, while the turtle slowly moves along*

<Character>: HOLY MOLEY!
Lim: Winner doesn't get turned into soup!
<Character>: Er, Lim? HOW do you make soup from a robotic rabbit? What, is the broth made of oil?
Lim: Yep. It's what Voltabolt feeds the Junkyard Driller, don'cha know!
Lim: Okay.. we should probably get to the finish line...

*You both run off*

You now fight through a path.

There are some healing mushrooms, when approached:
"Never eat wild mushrooms unless they sparkle!"

After reaching the end:
Lim: Now, as you'll see in a minute or two, this race is a classic example of velocity.

*Scene is shown with Twilly holding a sign*

Lim: The Rabbitizier 6000 Mach 2 not only started faster, but will have kept up its initial velocity through the whole race because it's a robot.
<Character>: While the carrier-turtle gets slower as it gets tired?
Lim: Exac- Oooh, here it comes now!

*A sequence is shown with the rabbit hopping forward*

*Cysero races past the rabbit*

Cysero: Faster than a speeding rabbit! Greener than my carrier turtle! I am...
Cysero: President Lim of the Physics Platoon!
Cysero: I saw your rabbit break down in the middle of the race-track, so I filled it with schnozzberry oil and a ticking clock.
Cysero: It was sputtering and sparking, but it seems alright now!
Cysero: Then I took off running while the clock was winding itself up.

*Lim puts his hands over his head*

Lim: Argh!
Lim: *sigh* I suppose I don't need to be angry this time.
Lim: You DID illustrate my experiment, even if you didn't mean to.
<Character>: I'm not really sure your demonstration was COMPLETELY necessary, Lim, but it was certainly suspense-filled.
<Character>: Congratulations, Cysero!
Cysero: So. Where's my trophy?

*Cysero turns around as the rabbit approaches the finish line and turns it back towards the starting line*

*The turtle slowly treads along*

Twilly: Go Clyde!!!

If you click to continue:
Cysero: Come on, little buddy! You can do it!
Cysero: Whoo! Look at him go!!!
<Character>: ...
Lim: I really wanted some soup...

*The rabbit is shown hopping in the desert*

Cysero: It keeps going and going...!

Otherwise (Easter Egg):
Twilly: Yay!
<Character>: Wow. I can't believe I stood here waiting until he was finished.
<Character>: I must be really bored.

*The rabbit is shown hopping in the desert*

Cysero: It keeps going and going...!
