Esteban: Moseby, I would like to tell you something about my
Moseby: You mean that it's still stuck in your teeth?
London: Moseby, be a dear and take these to Esteban's room. Amd Moseby, be a moose and take these to mine.
Moseby: London, the best thing for Esteban to do is keep that money in the back. Save it for a rainy day.
Esteban: Ooh. That is a good point.
London: But if it's a rainy day, he can just take his helicopter to some place dry.
Esteban: Ooh. That is a good point, too.

Kurt: (Enters the suite) Hey, guys!
Zack: (Giddy like a child) Daddy! (He and Cody run over to hug him, then Mark joins in)
