Detective Jane Rizzoli: Tasha?
Tasha Williams: Hi 
Detective Jane Rizzoli: This is Dr. Maura Isles. You spoke to her on the phone 
Tasha Williams: Hello. 
[Maura nods to Tasha
Tasha Williams: What's that thing? 
Detective Jane Rizzoli: That? That is a hug-me-tight Teddy bear, you know, in case you are lonely 
Tasha Williams: I'm not really a hugger and that's not really a bear 
Dr. Maura Isles: I didn't want to say anything, but she's right. It's a Panda, Ailuropoda Melanoleuca 
Tasha Williams: Which literally translates to black and white cat foot, not bear foot, more close related to raccoons than to bears 
Dr. Maura Isles: Yeah, I'm afraid not, a recent international science study of DNA concluded that pandas are actually more closely related to spectacle bears from South-Africa than raccoons 
Tasha Williams: Maybe, but their skull and dental structures don't resembles bears, their feet don't have heel pads and they don't hibernate, so if they are bears, then they are all alone on their own little bear island 
Detective Jane Rizzoli: So we're agreed: it's part panda, part bear, part raccoon, part cat 
Tasha Williams: I'm not agreeing to that! 
Dr. Maura Isles: Jane, that's ridiculous! 
Detective Jane Rizzoli: Yes, it is absolute ridiculous that a stuffed animal can be genetically incorrect!
