When Turtle races into the lift of Building 24, there is a nod and a blink and a step to the side. A grunt and a sigh and a lean to the right.

But what happens when the lift stops moving? Crocodile has a meeting to get to. And Giraffe has a doctor’s appointment. 
And Turtle really, really needs to get to the shop.
