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

T:  engineering kids are just theatre kids with numbers

----

J: Roy: I take very good care of myself. I treat my body like a temple.
J: Wally, without blinking: Yeah, open to anyone day or night

----

T: This is fine. I love a good shot of blasphemy and murder with my morning coffee.

----

J: I didn't do it to be nice. I did it because I've always wanted to commit a felony. Misdemeanours just ain't the rush they used to be.

----

T: pop quiz: is ur trauma from your dad being not around or from your dad being around?

----

J: there's a cat stuck in a tree on 3rd and 4th

T: Hannibal is a romcom with dark lighting and I will die on this hill

J: FORTY-FIVE MILLION? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR GODDAMN MIND?
T: it should have been more, right? I knew it
J: YES I SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE? WHAT WERE YOU THINKING LEAVING THE HOUSE WITH ONLY FORTY-FIVE MILLION ON YOU?
T: I brought my card too!!

----

T: Broke: accepting the "classics" as the current peak of human creativity and praising them
T: Woke: accepting that society glorifies the stories of people behind the works, which in turn glorify mental illness (van Gogh) & misogynistic assholes (Picasso) who married young girls (Poe) & wrote about/drew women in lewd positions for their own entertainment (Orwell) & there's much better art/literature that's been historically AND presently erased

----

J: Look, we all have our breaking point.
T: Personally, mine is at 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 every day.

----

T: "you look tired" bro I wanna die

----

J: Apart from framing him for murder, I have been very kind to that man

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

R: I'm always accused of having a favourite friend. That's not true. I love Timmy and Not-Timmys equally.

----

D: Throwback to that time when I told Roy "they're making another planet earth" and he raised an eyebrow and said in this absolutely deadpan condescending tone "and where are they getting the dirt for it?" and I had to specify I meant planet earth the nature documentary not the celestial body

----

W: I'm immune to mean and hurtful words because Dickie says nice things to me every day and his love protects me
R: I'm immune to mean and hurtful words because Dickie says mean things to me so I'm prepared

----

D: Interesting. The odds of that happening coincidentally are vanishingly small
W: I would say infinitesimally
T: Yes, and I would say teenily weenily. We all know words

----

W: yo Roy, u up??
T: He's up. He's playing animal crossing
W: how do u know
T: we're switch friends. it tells me when he's online
W: but that means that you are also playing animal crossing
T: shhh
