Kiki: “Morning, everyone!”
Osono: “Well, look who’s up! Did you sleep well?”
Kiki: “Yes. Oh, that smells good [bread]! Can I help out?”

Kiki: “Osono, I have something I want to talk to you about.” […]
Osono: “Ooh, a delivery business, huh?”
Kiki: “Well, I really only have one skill and that’s flying. So I thought a delivery service wouldn’t be a bad idea.”
Osono: “It’s a great idea — Kiki’s Flying Delivery Service. And, since you’re staying right here, I can be your very first account.”
Kiki: “You mean it! Oh, that’s great!”
