a person’s body is his temple. this body is your first and last possession. now, as your parents have probably already told you, in adolescence our bodies tend to betray us, and that’s why in simoa and other developing nations, adolescents are sent out into the woods, unarmed, and they don’t come back until they’ve learned a thing or two. understand?
Actually I’m here to discuss an invention with one of your neighbors, we’re thinking of manufacturing these little plastic, peanut-like pieces that keep an item free from trauma during shipping, it’s miraculous

He’s like a big, infected whitehead.
He’s saying that to be a Christian is to choose….to choose of your own choice. Since you can’t choose to good because that would be too rational, you have to choose to do bad. It’s existential.

I hope you changed the water in that bong from last time.
I need $25 for my band uniform 2: I thought you quit the band? 1: Well, I only have a couple notes to play, so I decided I’d just stay in.

Janey Carver: Mikey’s been out of it since the day he was born.
Maybe we could mess around?
Mikey Carver: Because of molecules we are connected to the outside world from our bodies. Like when you smell things, because when you smell a smell it’s not really a smell, it’s a part of the object that has come off of it, molecules. So when you smell something bad, it’s like in a way you’re eating it. This is why you should not really smell things, in the same way that you don’t eat everything in the world around you because as a smell, it gets inside of you. So the next time you go into the bathroom after someone else has been there, remember what kinds of molecules you are in fact eating.

You’re not a psycho.
[Explaining the facts of life to his son.]
Ben Hood: On the self-abuse front — and this is important — I don’t think it’s advisable to do it in the shower. It wastes water and electricity and because we all expect you to be doing it there in any case. And, not on… under the linen… Well… Anyway, if you’re worried about anything at all, just feel free to ask and we’ll look it up.
[Mikey rides up behind Wendy]
Mikey Carver: I never want to see you again
Wendy Hood: Then why did you follow me?
[Mikey stops, turns his bike around and rides off]
[Saying grace at Thanksgiving.]
Wendy Hood: Dear Lord, thank you for this Thanksgiving holiday. And for all the material possessions we have and enjoy. And for letting us white people kill all the Indians and steal their tribal lands. And stuff ourselves like pigs, even though children in Asia are being napalmed.
Ben Hood: Jesus! Enough, alright? Paul… roll?
[Stopping by his son’s room, momentarily putting down his luggage]
Jim Carver: Hey guys, I’m back!
Mikey Carver: You were gone?
