JOHN: the hug pile doesn't stop from getting taller. ROSE: ? JOHN: the hug pile! there are more hugs, rose. ROSE: I can see the hugs. I don't understand the pile thing. JOHN: oh. don't you remember? JOHN: a funny quote from one of dave's old comics! ROSE: Ah. Yes, vaguely. ROSE: It's been a long journey, John. ROSE: I believe one of the most valuable lessons that comes with growing up is gaining the wisdom that gently informs you when it's time to retire a meme. JOHN: heh... JOHN: i guess i never earned that handy badge, or whatever. JOHN: i like this, though. every time someone wakes up, or pops out of nowhere, it's fun times all over again. JOHN: i feel like i should be playing reunion bingo. JOHN: who will be next?? JOHN: my money is on the long awaited and insanely poignant reunion between me and casey the salamander. ROSE: Surely you mean the dear Viceroy Bubbles Von Salamancer, right? ROSE: And instead of you, you mean me. ROSE: That's when the real tears will flow. JOHN: what do you think she's up to? ROSE: He. JOHN: no, she is my beautiful daughter. :p ROSESPRITE: Something tells me the good Viceroy has been busy. ROSE: Oh? ROSESPRITE: I sense he's been... scheming. ROSESPRITE: Plotting. ROSESPRITE: Biding his time. ROSESPRITE: Accruing dark legions. ROSE: That sure is a thing that would be dumb, if true. ROSESPRITE: Yeah.
