"Well it just didn't work the way it should and he couldn't breathe"
"Why didn't it work?"
"I don't know sweetie"
"Maybe it wasn't charged"
Me: "Goodnight, I love you so much"
Finn: "I love you more than ever. And when you're old I'll take care of you"
"Dad, instead of saying, 'boom, roasted!' you could just say like, 'I knew it!'"
"Mom when you have another baby you should name him Trecko. Is that a good name?"

"But I'm married to Daddy."
"Well now just marry someone else."

"I think Max and I are best friends. Or are we soul mates?...[long pause]...well, whats a soul mate?"
