Jimothy: Do you... um... do you know how my parents are doing?
Jimothy: ... my parents. Family. ...
Jimothy: ... I can hear YOU just FINE!!

Jimothy: Yeah, I didn't think I was missing much.
Jimothy: ... Ha! Some vacation!

Jimothy: What does our TEACHER care? ... He does, does he? Well did he give you his number? ... Oh. Hang on. I have a pen.

Jimothy: It's going REALLY well, considering all we've been through. She's kind of amazing.

Jimothy: I... I can't and won't promise to tell her that, no, because it is NOT FUNNY.
