Character Dialogue

!!! Attention Spoiler !!! click "Expand" to view all dialogue =>

Clara: "Finn! I'm beginning a very important project. I need your help!”
Finn: "You bet, Clara! Um...what is it?"
Clara: "Well, we need more honey bees around here."
Clara: "Get ready for a Honey Bee Bonanza in Paradise Bay!"

Clara: "First, help me place this Honey Bee Hive, will you please?"
Clara: "That spot is perfect! Bees are so important, Finn!"
Clara: "If we are going to attract them, we need some flowers!"

Clara: "Find a nice place for these Paradise Pots, Trademaster!"
Clara: "Perfect! These special Paradise Pots will grow more than one type of flower!"
Finn: "How do we know which one it will be?"
Clara: "That's part of the surprise, Finn. We just see what grows!"
Clara: "We need to make our Hive an attractive place for bees to move into."
Clara: "While we're waiting for our first flowers to grow, here are some flowers to get us started!"

Clara: "Let's go the Blacksmith! We can prepare sturdy arrangements with our flowers there!"
Clara: "Check the Blacksmith to see what we need to craft!"
Finn: "Let's hurry this up, Trademaster! I want to see what it makes!"

Clara: "Oh, look at that! Beautiful! Now, if we place this on the Honey Bee Hive it'll help attract bees!"
Finn: "Wow! The Hive got bigger!"
Clara: "Yes it did! Now, all we have to do is keep stacking flower arrangements around the Hive."
Clara: "That's how we'll attract bees. Maybe even the biggest bee of all!"

Clara: "You got a Karma Camellia! Give it to a friend's Hive and you'll get a Vivacious Violet in return!"
Clara: "You can use your Vivacious Violet to make a Luxurious Lei at the Blacksmith!"

Finn: "What did you mean by the “biggest bee of all", Clara?"
Clara: "There's a Jumbo Bee, on the island, Finn! If we can attract him to our Hive, we'll get bonus honey!"
Finn: "I like the sound of that!"

Finn: "The Hive gets more impressive every time I turn around!"
Clara: "I know! I really hope the Jumbo Bee is impressed!"

Finn: "Bees make life better all over Paradise Bay!"
Clara: "That's true, Finn! Bees are like little friends that help up grow beautiful crops and flowers!"
Finn: "I used to be scared of them, but they're pretty good to have around I guess."
Clara: "That's exactly right, Finn!"

Wesley: "Well what do we have here? Building a Bee Hive?"
Finn: "That's right, Wesley! We're going to build the bees a nice house!"
Wesley: "Very good idea, young man! I'll lend you a hand."
Finn: "Just keep making these arrangements at the Blacksmith, Wesley!"

Finn: "We're getting very close to finishing our Honey Bee Hive, Clara!"
Clara: "That's true! And if we can finish it in time, the Jumbo Bee will move in!"
Clara: "And if that happens, he'll give us honey!"
Finn: "Really?!"
Clara: "He really will!"

Clara: "We did it!"
Wesley: "And the Jumbo Bee has decided to move into our Honey Bee Hive!"
Clara: "Thank you so much for your help, Finn! And you too, Trademaster!"
Finn: "Do you think these bees know how hard it was to make this?"
Clara: "Believe me, Finn. These bees are no strangers to hard work!"
Clara: "They'll be working hard to help us have a beautiful, successful island!"
Finn: "Well, do they ever take naps?"
Clara: "Of course!"
Finn: "Me too! And I'm taking one right now! Phew!"
