This is a listing of the Beanish frames and their associated dialog, using the Beanish Speech numbering system. By speculaing on what the Beanies might be saying, and looking for repeats and patterns, a phrase-book might be concocted, even without knowing the individual symbols' meaning.

Beanish Speech numbering systemEdit

Using the Beanie Speech numbering system, the first frame of actual Beanie speech is BS 1. (The previous frame, BS 0, had Cuegan speech)
BS-0 = M-2657 = GW-2662 = BA-2665 Dead Sea (which is big) Scrolls

Beanish framesEdit

BS-1: first meetingEdit

the three Beanies are in very similar poses. Leftmost (closest to Cuegan) speaks. It could be:

Hello (or its equivalent)
who are you?
Do you speak Beanie?
I don't understand.
Huh?

BS-2: middle Beanie speaksEdit

a longer loqution. Hands are extended a bit; that position suggests he (or she) is asking a question. It could be:
Where are you from?
How did you get here?
Do you speak Beanie?



I am leaving out the possibilities that the Beanies are equally lost and are asking the Cuegan "Do you know the way to San Jose?"

BS-3 Cuegan speakEdit

BS-4 Cuegan bandage being removedEdit

BS-5 Cuegan bandage completely removedEdit

Rightmost Beanie has look of "Oh my!" Middle one curious, looking in. Leftmost (closest) one backing off a bit, perhaps to speak to the middle one.

BS-6: Middle Beanie speaks and points to whence the Beanies cameEdit

(or to the third Beanie.. same direction) This results in the rightmost Beanie going back whence they came. Probably a command. Could be:
Get/find/bring the doctor/elder/mommy/medical_kit (here).
The doctor/elder/mommy would know (what to do).

BS-7: Rightmost Beanie walking whence they came.Edit

BS-8: Leftmost Beanie examins Megan's kneeEdit

BS-9: Leftmost Beanie points to Megans knee and says something to remaining BeanieEdit

Could be:

This looks serious.
I've never seen that before.
Looks like a keyboard attack.
At least nothing is broken.
... or the same, in question form.

BS-10: Rightmost Beanie returns with something.Edit

BS-11: Leftmost Beanie leads them to a rock.Edit

Xe has hands outstretched and looks like xe's talking to Megan, but there's no speech indicated.

BS-12 Megan, center, on rockEdit

Cuegan to left. Leftmost Beanie on far left, the other two Beanies each holding something and are on far right. Cuegan speech:

Cueball: They seem to know what they're doing
Megan: Yeah. I wonder what that is.

BS-13 Megan points to what middle Beanie has and asks:Edit

Cuegan speech:

Megan: That. What is that?

BS-14 Middle Beanie responds.Edit

Leftmost Beanie looks to left (away from group) Beanie speech (two long words). Could be:

Bacitracin(r)
Magic elixir/antiseptic cream (or whatever it is)
This won't hurt a bit. (or something reassuring)
Brace yourself!

BS-15 Middle Beanie applies paste.Edit

Cuegan speech:

Cueball: It's some kind of paste. Does it hurt?
Megan: Not --ow-- not really.

BS-16 Middle Beanie continues to apply paste.Edit

BS-17 The two rightmost Beanies back off, Megan gets up.Edit

to test it out. White paste visible on her knee.

BS-18 The two rightmost Beanies turn (to go?).Edit

Cuegan speech:

Megan: Um, thank you.

BS-19 Leftmost Beanie gesturing at the Cuegan to followEdit

as they exit right. The leftmost Beanie has passed the Cuegan on the right.
