Mousemates

Jerry: So, how was the lab?
Brick: Well, the humans lost the cheese again so, who else would they call but their number one cheese hunter? So I stepped up to the plate and I saved the day! And now I've got cheese! So much cheese!
Jerry: Where was the cheese?
Brick: At the back of the maze! Where they always leave it! You'd think they'd notice but they don't! And now I have the cheese! It only took 36 seconds, too. That's down from 38 last week. Oh, the humans were so impressed by me!
Jerry: You think that impressed the humans? Look at this!
(Reveals ear on his back)
Brick: Woah! That's an ear!
Jerry: Yeah. I grew it. I think I must have a superpower or something. The power to grow ears! The humans were in awe! They said I was a breakthrough!
Brick: Did they give you cheese?
Jerry: They didn't give me cheese.
Brick: They gave me cheese.
Jerry: (Noticing Daisy rocking back and forth) Hey, what happened to Daisy?
Brick: She must be pretty sick. The humans said she needed some experimental therapy.
Daisy: The electrodes! Oh god, please not the electrodes!
(Mike enters)
Brick: Hey Mike!
Jerry: Mike, how was your day?
Mike: It was really weird. The humans gave me this drug that they think might be the cure for cancer. But I don't have cancer. Do I? (beat) Hey guys, do you think the humans gave me cancer?
Brick: I think they gave me cheese.
Mike: Well, that's great but - well, why would they give me the cure for cancer unless they - Oh my god. Jerry .. Jerry, I think we're the experiments.
Jerry: What?
Mike: We're the experiments! The humans are experimenting on us!
Brick: No, no, no
Daisy: Yeeeees
Jerry: Why would the humans experiment on the only mouse in the world that can grow ears!?
Mike: They probably put that on you! Guys! The humans are using us!
Brick: You're just jealous I got the cheese
Mike: I don't want the cheese
Brick: You aren't getting the cheese. It's my cheese. I get the cheese. All the cheese!
Mike: This is more important than cheese!
Brick: Nothing is more important than cheese
Mike: This is! The humans are experimenting on us!
Jerry: No they aren't!
Mike: Yes they are! They gave me cancer!
Jerry: You're crazy! All that cancer in your brain is making you talk crazy!
Mike: Look what they did to Daisy!
Daisy: Don't taze me!
Jerry: Yeah, don't tease her!
Mike: She said taze, not tease!
Brick: Did you say cheese?
Mike: No one is talking about cheese! How can you people not understand the gravity of this situation! This is like some terrible game of experiment on the mice - and we're the mice! We need to get out of here! I'm taking this giant wheel and I'm riding it to safety! (Runs on spot) GO FREEDOM WHEEL! GO!
Jerry: uh, Mike?
Mike: SHUT UP! JUST, SHUT UP! I NEED THIS! I NEED THIS!
Jerry: Mike, maybe you should just calm down
Mike: MAYBE YOU SHOULD CALM UP! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DON'T CARE! THEY ARE USING US! WE ARE -(chokes) (dies)
(beat)
Jerry:
Well.. I guess he didn't have the cure for cancer.
