Yes, I do talk. Better than some people, it seems. I'd smile at you right now, but I just don't have a mouth. [it laughs] Say, could you do me a big favor?
Seymour is an unusual, intelligent, talking spore plant living in Broken Hills. He was grown from a tiny spore and nurtured by the insane Professor, but he realized from an early age that if he were to act as smart as he truly was, the professor would cut him into pieces to examine him. Therefore, Seymour played dumb and got planted outside in the Professor's garden.
