Girl: I was like, “High school is over. I can’t wait to get away from everyone!” And then, thanks to you, I actually realized that I might miss some people. You, James*, Gabrielle*, Dave V.*, Karen G.*!

Girl: But Gabrielle is going to Jersey! Everyone knows that once you go to Jersey, your soul dies.
