Back in Two Ticks!

Gilby's language acquisition is such that, although he is only two, at times he sounds like he is forty-two. Here are some of his latest expressions:

"Back in two ticks!" - As he leaves the room to fetch another toy.
"Would you do me a favour?" - Usually when he wants some more milk.
"While you're tidying would you keep an eye out for..." - Any small lost thing that he is concerned about.

He seems to only need to hear an adult say something once before adopting it himself. It all sounds very funny, coming earnestly from the mouth of a still-wobbly toddler.
