Best Lines From Shabbos - BBT/SerandEz Shabbaton Version

Special Ed: Erachet, I saw a crazy old guy today and I thought of you.
Everyone: ...?

[In a conversation where the word 'molecularly' was used...]
Ezzie [to Bad4]: Is molecularly even a word?
Special Ed: I'm no Scientologist, but I'm pretty sure it's a word.
[Everyone laughs]
Special Ed: Yes! I'm on a roll! You've gotta know when to use it! You have to know the right time to use the line! You've got to use it the right way!

[Elianna commandeers the double stroller and walks with it across the room. Corner Point chases her down and turns the stroller around]
Ezzie: ...is Kayla in there?!
Everyone else: [staring] You're holding her!

Serach: Who was that guy who was sitting across the street from...?
Ezzie: ...across the table?
Serach: Who was that guy who was sitting across the street...?
Ezzie: You did it again!!!

RaggedyMom [to MordyS]: So, you're a firefighter? We once had a garbage collector come to us for Shabbos.
MordyS: Are you comparing firefighters to garbage collectors?!
RaggedyMom: ...Yes.

[During "Apples to Apples," Erachet is judge of the word 'flirtatious.' She looks at the cards and exclaims]
Erachet: Firefighters?! Firefighters aren't flirtatious!!!
Ezzie: [Looks meaningfully at MordyS]
MordyS [half asleep]: Wait, what? Did someone just say something about firefighters?

Ezzie: I'm debating whether or not to make Erachet really self-conscious right now.
[Pause. Erachet glares at Ezzie and starts slinking under the table]
Special Ed: Well, that worked!

[SJ, Bad4, Corner Point, Erachet, Apple, Special Ed, and Serach cluster around Jameel, listening with rapt attention]
Steve of Webads turns to Ezzie: He was never this popular with the girls at NCSY!

Jameel: I'm Jameel.
Princess D'Tiara: I'm Princess D'Tiara.
Serach [inserts herself into the circle]: I'm DovBear!

P.S. Kayla has selected her future career: she wants to be a pirate. CornerPoint, Bad4, Erachet, and SJ determined that her pirate name will be "Nobeard Pinksock." Or alternatively, "Pinkbeard Nosock." She is currently accepting applications for a First Mate.

  2. Erachet, I think this one went more like this:

    Ezzie: I'm debating whether or not to make Erachet really self-conscious right now.
    [Pause. Erachet glares at Ezzie and starts slinking under the table]
    Special Ed: Heh. Well that was a short debate!

    :-D

  3. Kayla told me that she wants to be a Barf-a-teer when she grows up. Her name will be Hurly McSpewstein

  6. LOL, great lines. And great, great fun.

    For the record, although I give major props to both the firefighting community (343 forever!), and also the garbage collectors, I can't reasonably say that the two are similar. The only reason I juxtaposed them in that conversation was to point out that there are frum guys with atypical jobs and/or volunteer callings. Not all guys are accountants and lawyers, and I like that they're not.

    Mordy would have been more aware of my point if he wasn't busy reading Russian children's books the whole time.

  7. ycboeRussian children's books? So someone else likes other languages (and children's books) besides me?

  8. Actually, Ed was doing a fine job translating for us. Somehow the book turned out to be some crazy communist propaganda... Why the Raggedy's have that drivel in their house is totally beyond me!lol
