Silly Richard!

During a follow up report from Richard while he reported on the maiden voyage of a luxury condominum cruise ship called "The World," the cheeky monkey had this exchange with the ship's captain...


QUEST: No matter who owns the ship, the captain remains in charge, even for troublesome visitors.

(on camera): Come on, let me push one button.

CAPTAIN: Do you really have to?

QUEST: I want to. Look, can I push that one over there?

CAPTAIN: No, no, no, no, no.

QUEST: Come on, which one can I push?

CAPTAIN: If you really have to push one...

QUEST: I want to push one.

CAPTAIN: OK, push that one.

QUEST: That one. I can push this? The captain's let me push this button.
