      RJ Berger: My name is RJ Berger, and crime doesn't pay... At least not for me...

    • (Watching as Max gets attention from Jenny and a crowd of onlookers because of his injured finger.)
      Miles: That son of a b*tch is gonna be getting sympathy BJ's from that bimbo all semester!
      Lily: Don't call her a bimbo fat ass! (Miles and RJ stare at her in shock.) Okay so the b*tch isn't such a b*tch after all. (Long pause as they continue to stare.) What?! It's not like I want to scissor her or anything... (Looks RJ up and down naughtily.) Well not unless you want me to RJ...

    • (Max squeals with pain after his finger accidentally gets nailed to the wall.)
      Hamilton: What did you just do?!
      RJ Berger: ME?! I was trying to stop you! I couldn't let you kill him!

    • Hamilton: (Pulling RJ aside.) Hey come here man... So umm... Sonya told me about your problem with pretty boy... Now you one of us now bro, and we take care of our own. So if this punk ass Max kid is a problem, now I'll take care of that problem for you... (RJ nods approval.)
