    • Jamie: I guess we've questioned everyone in class. We still don't have a suspect.
      Vicki: Yes we do.
      Jamie: Who?
      Vicki: You.
      Jamie: Hi Jessica.
      Jessica: Hello Jamie.
      Vicki: (Grabs Jessica's hand) What's your favorite color?
      Jessica: What?!
      Jamie: Vicki, not Jessica!
      Jessica: Let go of my hand!
      Vicki: What's your favorite color?
      Jessica: Well if you must know, it's pink.
      Vicki: Ha, ha, ha.
      Jamie: See Vicki, she's telling the truth. Come on.
      Vicki: Did you ever steal a history test?
      Jessica: What?! Of course not!
      Vicki: Ah-choo! Ah-choo!
      Jamie: Vicki, obvious... Hey you sneezed. Jessica, you did steal that test didn't you?
      Jessica: How dare you accuse me of stealing! I would never dod such a thing.
      Vicki: Ah-choo!
      Jessica: You've got a lot of nerve.
      Jamie: Jessica, I was hiding in the classroom. I saw you.
      Jessica: But I like a guy with nerve, loverboy. (Runs her fingers through Jamie's hair)
      Jamie: Vicki, I think I can take it from here.
      Vicki: Okay, loverboy. (Runs her fingers through Jamie's hair)
      Jessica: Jamie, if you were to turn me in, it'd be very embarassing. But you know I'd hate to be embarassed.
      Jamie: I do, I do.
      Jessica: On the other hand, if you were to do something noble like say take the blame yourself, then I could go steady with you.
      Jamie: (In a light squeaky tone) Steady? (Clears throat)
      Jessica: Of course, I've always had a thing for men with blue eyes. (Blows a kiss)
      Jamie: Mine are brown, but why quibble?

    • Jamie: Okay Vicki, you're goin' to be my lie detector at lunch so we can find out who stole the test. Okay?
      Vicki: Okay. When I touch a person, my hand will detect any changes in their skin temperature and pulse rate which will indicate if they are lying.
      Jamie: Right. Just grab their hand, ask a couple of dumb questions like "What's their favorite color?". Then we hit 'em with the big one about the test. Understand?
      Vicki: Understand.
      Jamie: We don't want them to know what we're doing. We've gotta set up some signals. Now if they're telling the truth, I want you to laugh, ha, ha, ha! And if they're lying, sneeze, ah-choo!
      Vicki: Truth: Laugh, ha, ha, ha! Lie: Sneeze, ah-choo!
      Jamie: Right. Just don't let go of their hands. Come on.

    • Joan: Who can tell me the name of Romeo's true love? (Sees Jamie staring at Jessica) You, Jamie?
      Jamie: (In a dreamy voice) Jessica.
      Joan: (After Vicki raises her hand) Yes Vicki?
      Vicki: Romeo loved Juliet, not Jessica. Jamie has the hots for Jessica.
