T-Rex: I'm going to eat this chilli pepper!
T-Rex: WHOA! {T-Rex begins sweating profusely}
T-Rex: Oh my lord!!!
T-Rex: Yowzer!
T-Rex: Ow!
Utahraptor: You've got the sweats!
T-Rex: Yeah. But the breeze is blowing it away and making me cold.
Utahraptor: Gosh.
T-Rex: Oh... so that's why they're called "chilli" peppers!
T-Rex: Brrrr..!
