[Noticing the purple lights on the tent's cables] I've never seen one that looked like this 'un before. Well... I don't know Pooh, you know there's something kinda peculiar around here. Where is everybody? There's nobody around. Where's the dang ticket booth? [A shadow from inside the tent follows them] How are we supposed to get in and see the show?

[Watching the stars, suddenly a bright light appears and disappears]
Mike Tobacco: Did you see that?
Debbie Stone: Yeah I saw that! That was incredible!

Debbie Stone: We were up at "the top of the world" and we saw this shooting star and we decided to go look for it! But instead of finding the shooting star we saw this... this circus tent! And that's when we went inside and that is when we saw those people in those... those pink, cotton candy cocoons! Dave, it was not a circus tent! It was something else!
