---- [T -> J] ----

T: hold on a minute, are you trying to do a flashback?
J: Yeah I was about to.
T: You can't. I'm in the middle of a flashback.
J: who cares?
T: It'll get confusing.

----

J: He looks like he's been doing something stupid
T: He always looks like that. I think it's just his face and life decisions.

---- [T -> D] ----

D: Not my circus, not my monkeys
D: Oh wait shit it is my circus

---- [T -> J] ----

T: I had a dream that unless the teacher told us class was over, we were forbidden from going out the door. Our teacher was very forgetful, and maybe even malicious. After being forced to stay past sunset many days, my class decided we were going to break out every night. Eventually our attempts led us to discovering rifts in space-time where we could warp. So we never used the door. Checkmate.
J: the window
T: what? you going to critique my dreams? my subconscious creations, that I did by accident, while asleep? the chemicals in my brain? are you going to use your foul eyes and dissect all of the plotholes in my dreams? you going to critique the weather? harass the clouds? make fun of thunder for being off key? remind me to come to your house and shred your shoes

----

J: is that fucking Loss
T: getting that its one picture and not four, but not getting the meme at first is like effortlessly moving out of the way of a cyclist on the sidewalk by jumping into oncoming traffic

----

T: If you listen closely to dishwashers, you can hear the slurping sounds of hundreds of tongues inside cleaning the dishes

----

J: Ur not worthless, Timmy
T: :}
J: organs are extremely expensive on the black market 

----

T: watching Dickie and Bruce argue is wild
T: "No, This has to do with you sneaking out last night, I'm sure. Where did you go?"
T: "I can't hear people over six feet. Sorry."
T: "That isn't-"
T: "What's that? Timmy. Timmy, mate. Do you hear something? A voice coming from the sky? God? Is that you?"

----

J: There is both a main key and a spare key that will unlock every entrance into the manor. Dickie has both. One time I asked him, if something happened to him, how I would get into the manor, and he said, "If somethings happened to me, you lot will have been dead for weeks."

----

T: I'll have u know I can bench press over sixty million and ninety-two nanograms
J: Thats less than two pounds
T: sounded better the way I said it

----

J: We're not gonna hang around like sitting ducks. we're gonna take the fight to them.
T: Like some WADDLING ducks

----

T: a concept: me, in my cottage, in front of a wood stove, sipping coffee. looking outside, my bees are pollinating my expensive garden. my goats and chickens and cows are happy and safe. i feel contented with my choices and my future. i unconditionally and recklessly love myself. the local children think i am a witch.

----

J: Dickie and I got stopped by a cop in the middle of our scheme and Dickie flips down off the roof in front of the cop, says, "Not to worry, I have a permit," and hands the cop a crumpled piece of paper that says "I can do what I want -Dickie Grayson"
J: and the cop looks at the paper, looks at Dickie, looks back at the paper, then hands it back to Dickie, tips his hat and says, "Continue on. Have a good night, Dick." and walks away

---- [W -> J] ----

W: Why is Timmy sobbing loudly from the other room
J: He finally caved and started watching season 15 of Supernatural
J: Every twenty minutes or so he'll yell something like "whomst gave them right to do that to my emotions?!" in an emotion-broken voice

---- [Proof god is dead] ----

D: I'm going to the store does anyone want anything
W: A date with you
T: A reason to live
T: Babs says "My hopes and dreams"
R: The cash register
J: Some bread

----

T: I'm tired someone tell me how to sleep
W: Reading a book before going to bed can help relax you and you'll eventually doze off
R: drink
D: Just starve yourself of sleep until your REALLY tired, then you have no problem
J: get a knife
J: stab yourself
J: eternal sleep
