MC asks the question, "What's going on?"

 

Three answer the question at the same time.

 

MC only catches the gist of the three completely different answers.

 

Have you ever done this? If so, how?

“There’s a reason we continue to come all the way down here,” the fishmonger said.

“What’s that?” asked Flunky #2.

“Because this place of business is under the protection of Ghen Torna,” said the Apothecary.

The flunkies spoke in unison: “Who?” asked Flunky #1. “Why?” asked Flunky #2.

I wouldn’t write out what the flukies said, just what the protagonist thought he heard.

”So you’re sayin’ the toad hopped a Ferrari and wore a blonde wig, and the frog still got there first?”

After that, the flukies are more polite, realizing they won’t get the point across if they all speak together.

”No, no ...”

“The toad hopped a Tesla ...”

”The driver had a blonde wig, not the toad ...”

“They got lost. It was the Princess’ sister driving and she couldn’t tell toads from frogs, and ...”

”Wasn’t the Princess’ sister also a Princess?” Interrupted the protagonist. 

 

Sorry, you were saying?

A little explanation is needed for this first. The characters are all stuffed animals. Teddy and Spaulding are working together to put a pepper plant into the ground. Dookie was a teddy bear.

 

So, this is what I came up with. Can you assume who said which words?

 

"What's going on?" he shouted.

 

Phil, Lady, and Teddy answered all at once, but all Spaulding heard was "Dookie," "stuffing," and "bell peppers."

Looks good to me. I presume Spaulding heard in the order they were named, but it really doesn't matter. The point is made.
