"So, what's your point?"
—Hopefully there is no point –
There's just a nice comfortable chair.

—Beautiful, huh?
—All different.


"Remember, only one person can win,
so please give a big round of applause
to our third runner-up (It's you, honey!)"

a Fortiori Argument - (With Stronger Force) - They're

Pretending to be something they're not.

Don't volunteer!
—This, too, shall pass.


"I would expect you to know how
to take people where they're going."

"It's not what you know; it's who you know."
—And more!
—It takes two to tangle.


"You didn't know that?"
—Very mysterious.
—It wasn't special, let's put it that way.
