Terry Turtle waves goodbye before he is turned into Turtle Soup

Dr Dolittle eventually met Tommy Tortoise after a three month wait because it took Tommy so long to get to their meeting place in London.

When Tommy arrived he said "I am sorry I am late for a very important date but we tortoise's are very slow the last thing I did was post a letter and it took me two weeks to get to the post box and back home.Can you imagine if you humans had to put up with that if it took you two weeks to post a letter."

"In the Olympics one of the most exiting events is the 100 metres and its over in less than ten seconds but for us tortoises it takes nearly 10 days to run 100 metres hardly riveting entertainment."

"Being as slow as a tortoise can have serious consequences for
example my cousin Terry Turtle was caught last week by some nasty humans and turned into turtle soup"

Who would want to be a tortoise?
