—Hey, Charlotte. Why are you working so frantically on that new web?
—Well, Wilbur. I'm nervous about Mrs. Arable. She was looking up techniques for destroying me, a humble spider vein, using some advanced new Sclerotherapy Treatment. So I'm weaving "SOME VEIN" behind her kneecap to try and change her mind. It's a long shot, but hope is all I have.
—Why would Mrs. Arable want to get rid of you, Charlotte? You're so good at creating vivid purple and red spaghetti patterns under her skin.
—I guess some people don't appreciate my subcutaneous coloring.
—I can't believe that for a second, Charlotte. It's art!
—It's not just me she's gunning for, Wilbur. That Sclerotherapy Treatment is also effective against varicose veins like you.
—But she can't get rid of me! We've been together ever since she was pregnant with Fern. I've been good to her over the years, growing as plump, squiggly, and inflamed as I could. Now she wants to banishing me from her ankles? What a Judas.
—Now you know why I'm working so hard on this web.
—Maybe the treatment won't work and we'll be spared.
—I wouldn't count on it, Wilbur. Even though individual results will vary, Mrs. Arable is going to the plastic surgery specialists at Contoured Images in Los Angeles. They know their stuff.
—How can she afford such an extravagance on her salary as a farmer's wife?
—It's all OnSale's fault. They have a special on two treatments for just $199.
—$199? We're doomed!
—Don't lose the faith, Wilbur. Our bacon isn't fried until after she sees my magnum opus.
—I believe in you, Charlotte. Now, weave those veins. Weave them like our violet lives depended on it.
—They do, Wilbur. They do.
