The Grunt: "Tea? Yummy! OK, boss. I'll get the other Grunts and Brutes and have some tea."
Later Alexander enters the room, where the monsters are having tea time. Imagine how awkward that would be, haha! Somehow, I don't think it would've been a good enough excuse that Daniel had tricked the poor Grunt. I think Alexander would be furious anyway, because of his servants' lack of intelligence.
