"Pretty sure it's with the keys!"

"It's not with the keys!"

"Did you leave it in the desk drawer?"

"No, it's not there, either! You didn't leave it out in the Honduran jungle again, did you?"

"Try calling it!"

"I can't call it, it's an ancient abandoned city!"

Followed by half an hour of heated argument.
