Basil's American Tail - Chapter 19
"Basil, Basil wake up!" Nellie said, shaking Basil gently.
"Ugh oh, we we fell asleep?" Basil said, blinking and rubbing his head.
He looked up at the sky, the dark blue tinge of early dawn reflected on the clouds. The rain was letting up.
"Far longer than we were supposed to. It's almost morning." Nellie said in disappointment.
"And not long enough to cure my drowsiness either." Basil groaned, grabbing his violin, "We might as well take advantage of what time we have, before heading back to Tammany Hall."
"Alright. I know we still haven't looked everywhere." Nellie said, unfolding her umbrella and holding her hand out to help Basil to his feet, "We're just too comfortable together for our own good."
Basil smirked, brushing hay off his coat, "We can't let that get in the way of work. At least, not to excess, right?"
"Right, Basil." Nellie answered with a smile, "Let's go."
The two of them made their way down the wet alley, Basil placing the violin beneath his chin again and p

"So you say our son has been searching for us, all this time?" Papa still couldn't believe it.
"Yeah, I first met him in a sweat shop. He's da one who helped bust me outta there. I figured I owed him one." said Tony, "Me and Bridget have been takin' care of him since then, we was lookin' all over for you."
"And how did you two meet him?" Papa asked Basil and Nellie.
"I first met the boy when he wandered into my room, led there by my violin. Nellie and I have been having chance encounters with the boy ever since, most recently when we went to find Warren's lair." Basil explained.
"We wanted to help reunite him with you as soon as we were done with our case which we are now." Nellie added.
"And vhen did you last see Fievel?"
"He was right with us when we was facin' off wit' Warren. And he musta ran off around when Warren set off dat fire." Tony answered.
"That was the last time I saw him too." Basil admitted.
"We were inside the Mouse of Minsk then." said Tanya, "We got to jump out
Basil's American Tail - Chapter 17
The mice of New York gathered in a crowd above the museum as below, Warren's gang of marauding cats stood menacingly, carrying wooden clubs and licking their teeth hungrily. In front of them stood Warren, still in his night gown but having had time to put his rat disguise back on. Basil sneered. Why did anyone fall for that thing? Fievel stood near Gussie, Nellie and Basil. While coming up to the roof he'd found Tony Toponi as well, though he and Bridget had gotten separated in the crowd.
"What's all this then? Was I not invited to da slumber party?" Warren asked.
"What do you want, you wat?" Gussie asked.
"He's not a rat, he's a cat! He's their boss!" Fievel yelled.
"It's true, we saw him with out own eyes!" Basil said, pointing an accusing finger at Warren, "He is clearly too big to be a rat, he lacks the buck teeth, his nose is all wrong, and the ears are prosthetic."
"I had my doubts at first Gussie, but I saw it too. We watched him take his disguise off when we found his lair, fil

"I think I'm finally getting it "
Basil strained and gritted his teeth as he twisted his tail in the lock, trying to get it open.
"Basil don't hurt yourself, you could break your tail." Nellie warned, putting a hand on his shoulder.
The unfortunate prisoners were locked up in a chamber filled with a huge pile of discarded bird cages. Basil had to wonder where it all came from, but this secret lair was a strange place as it was with its pianos and mirrors and stolen artifacts, not to mention the salamander thing. Fievel was in a separate cage, curled up and sobbing in a way that Basil had to admit pulled at his heartstrings, just a little, even though he pretended it just annoyed him. Their guard, Jake, was sitting in a wooden chair, his bowler hat pulled down over his eyes as he napped away; thus leading Basil to seize the chance and try to pick the lock.
"Just one more turn " Basil said, gritting his teeth, before wincing and quickly pulling his injured tail out of the lock.

The sound of the violin became louder, it's screeches making Basil's fur stand on end.
"Whoever that is, playing a violin that way ought to be a criminal offense itself!" Basil said, making Nellie giggle.
As they came closer, they noticed messages painted on the walls. One read "No dogs allowed." The other, "The Mott Street Maulers".
"Well, certainly was nice of them to label their hideout for us, wasn't it?" Nellie asked in amusement.
"That is rather foolish of them. That noisy violin is probably an even worse idea if they don't want others knowing where they are."
They stayed low and walked forward, peeking behind a brick wall into the hideout. It was filled with cats, many of them sitting around a table playing poker. There was an automatic piano at the back of the room. And, as luck would have it, Basil spotted the missing antiques from the museum; a statue and a clamshell mirror.
"Do you see Fievel anywhere?" Nellie whispered.
"No but I do see the stolen artifacts. We now kno
Basil's American Tail - Chapter 14
After about one more hour, once Basil and Nellie had changed back into their regular attire (though Nellie hadn't bothered to unbraid her pigtails), the tribe gathered around to see off these new foreign guests at the opening of the tunnel out of their sanctuary from the upper-world. The Chief and Hakan joined them.
"The journey should not take very long." said the Chief, "The tunnel to the den of the cats is just down the underground river from which we get our water."
'I hope that water is from a storm drain and not a sewer ' Basil thought.
"Alright, thank you for coming with to show us the way." Nellie said
gratefully, "Our stay has been fun, when we get back to the surface we'll do our best to make the surface safe enough so that one day we can all enjoy it together."
"You have been most respectful guests. If there is one thing this has proven, it is that there is compassion to be found in all mice." the Chief said.
"I will miss you." Cholena said.
"We'll miss you too." said N
