Under the Sea was a spectacular number, and the mer-sisters were only in it because Elaine argued passionately for them to be included.  (3/12/18)

Okay, so we forgot to feed her dinner with the other humans, but maybe if she sticks around long enough we'll give her a dessert or something.  (3/26/18)
