: Oh, well, it's just like talking, except longer and louder, and you move your voice up and down. Jovie
: I *can* sing, I just choose *not* to sing. Especially in front of other people. Buddy

: Mm-hmm. Buddy
: What's it like? Santa
: Well, there are some things you should know. First off, you see gum on the street, leave it there. It isn't free candy. Buddy
: Oh. Santa
: Second, there are, like, thirty Ray's Pizzas. They all claim to be the original. But the real one's on 11th. And if you see a sign that says "Peep Show", that doesn't mean that they're letting you look at presents before Christmas.
: Your costume is pretty. Carolyn
: Oh, it's not a costume. I'm an elf. Well, technically, I'm a human, but I was raised by elves. Buddy

: Are you sure it had nothing to do with the fact that I was naked in the shower? Buddy
: I didn't know you were naked.
: It's just nice to meet another human that shares my affinity for elf culture.
: I thought maybe we could make ginger bread houses, and eat cookie dough, and go ice skating, and maybe even hold hands.
: I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.
: First we'll make snow angels for a two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle.
: [to the doctor
