If "God" was the one leaping Sam, then it would be because God made a mistake. But theoretically speaking, God is perfect and cannot make mistakes. See more »
I went over to check out the cheerleaders. Oh, Sam. There was one little girl who had these pommelos, man.

I loved this show! It was amazing. I was almost crying when it ended. "THEY CAN'T LEAVE IT THERE!", I shouted. It is kind of sentimental and honest at the same time. Everything from the theme music to the inventiveness and unpredictabilty of it all makes it a truly classic show. I hope they make a movie of it some day. If they do it'll be a box office smash.
