You can think of behaviors as private backscripts for an object. For
every object that has a behavior assigned, "me" refers to the object
itself. So a button's behavior script that uses "me" would refer to that
button. The beauty is, "me" will refer independently to every button
that uses that behavior. "Me" in button 1 will mean button "Dog", where
the same behavior assigned to button 2 will mean, say, button "Cat".
It works like you copied the same script into each button.
