After thinking profoundly, Buzz came up with an idea. “Let’s ask our good friend Bobby if he can lend us his Playstation since he doesn’t use it.” Woody seemed incredulous to the idea. But he decided to go on it. Buzz called Bobby and explained the horrible event. Bobby said he would lend his precious console, but they had to be extremely careful. Buzz and Woody were so happy that they went flying to Bobby’s house. Once they arrived they started looking for Bobby. Once they found Bobby he gave them the console and told them again to take care of it with their lives. An emotional Woody answered: “Don’t worry beloved friend. We will be careful.” Off they went back home with the valuable item. The anxiety of beginning to play made them forget their promise of being careful. Upon arriving Woody gave the great news!
