On his part, Spork will spontaneously shout, "Where mah sis-say?! Mah sis-say!" anytime Tater is out of view. He often finds her Hippo or her stray left shoe lying about the house and retrieves it for her whether she wants it or not, whining and twisting the found item to and fro, his arm outstretched in a gesture of generosity, his face screwed up in confusion when she refuses his generosity with a flippant, "No!" Eventually, he will wing the damn thing at her in frustration, as if to shout, "Can't you see I'm helping?!"
I have no doubts that they'll continue to scrap and tussle with each other for many years to come but that they will always, always have each others backs.
