    • Jimmy: What you did was good, Matthew. Real good.

      Freaked out by Matthew's apparent superhuman powers, Jimmy adopts a defensive strategy from the episode "It's a Good Life" from The Twilight Zone (11/3/61). Faced with the prospect of a small boy with godlike powers, the citizens of a terrorized small town try to keep on his good side by pronouncing his every horrific whim "a good thing".
