N: Malamar-EX, use Spook Attack! Asleep!
X: How’s you like my city, guys?
Dad: It’s so large, I’m going to faint! *sigh*
K: Xavier, time for showers!
X: (Mumbling) I wish I could take a break! (aloud) I said, I’m glad I get a shower every night!
D: Like you’d ever say that!
N: Dad, be honest. You never say that!
D: Aah! My nose exploded!
X: Please. I do not see a nose lying on the ground.
N (to himself): Crazy.
Dad: You’re serious.
K: Nick, you’re up for showers! And no groaning!
Scene 2. It is the day before the reveal.

N: I need your opinion on something. Should I type or draw today?
N: Aaaaaaaahhhhh. Rock-Paper-Scissors, that stupid game.
Both: Rock, paper, scissors, (B: whattheheck, X: whatever.)
