      • (Matthieu & Moondoggie are decorating Renton's room)
        Renton: Um, hey, guys? What exactly are you doing?
        Matthieu: You just leave it to us!
        Moondoggie: That's right!
        (Holland barges into Renton's room and lifts him up by his collar)
        Holland: Damn you! WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO EUREKA?!

      • (Holland and Talho are walking through the corridors, Eureka is running opposite)
        Eureka: Hey! Holland!
        Holland: Eureka, what's wrong?
        Eureka: Holland, is it true you're a dad?
        Holland: Uh, no, but pretty soon I'm gonna become one.
        Eureka: Oh, really? How?
        Holland: Uh, wait, you want to know how? (confused) Yeah, how...
        (Talho shoulders Holland, giggling)
        Eureka: Do humans really need to have a dad around? Dads are really important, aren't they? Aren't they?
        Holland: Hmm, well, I won't know until I become one.
        Eureka: Oh, so maybe that's why Renton was so aggressive.
        (Holland and Talho gasp surprisingly)
        Holland: What?!
        Eureka: Maybe Renton wants to become a dad himself!
        (long pause, Holland rampages down the corridor)
        Holland: (ragingly) RENTON! WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU?!

      • Moondoggie: Um, guys, I have a question that we should keep just between us.
        Gidget: What is it?
        Moondoggie: Uh, well, never mind, it was just a stupid thought.
        Hilda: Come on, Moondoggie. You can't say that and then drop it. It's gonna drive me crazy.
        Moondoggie: Oh. Well, all right. Are those two able... to do it?
        Gidget: (slams the table) You're such a jerk, Moondoggie!
        Hilda: You can just get out of here right now!
        Matthieu: Hey, now, wait a minute, hold on here! This is a question that could be important for Renton.
        Hilda: I've had enough! I was a fool to come and ask you guys for advice. Let's go, Gidget.

      • Renton: Eureka, what's beyond the Great Wall?
        Eureka: I don't know, but there's one word I know of to describe it.
        Renton: What is it?
        Eureka: Future. That is what is beyond the Great Wall, Renton. Adrock said that to me.
        Renton: My dad did?
        (Eureka nods)
        Renton: Wait, you mean you know all about my dad?!
        Eureka: What's wrong?
        Renton: You should've told me that you knew.
        Eureka: About what?
        Renton: About my dad!
        Eureka: Well, I didn't think that you would want to hear about him that much. Am I wrong?
        Renton: (grabs her by the shoulders) He's my family! Geez, any human would want to hear about their family, wouldn't they?
        Eureka: I don't understand that, Renton!
        Renton: What do you mean you don't understand?! It's the natural way for humans to think! What's wrong with you?!
        Eureka: What's wrong... is that I'm not human. (runs off)
