Main Characters in this Episode
Wanda Dollard: No.
Oscar Leroy: I sent you a bunch of them.
Wanda Dollard: I know... but none of them are funny.
Oscar Leroy: They're LOL!
Wanda Dollard: Lame out loud? And could you stop sending them to me? The attachments are clogging up my inbox.
Oscar Leroy: That's probably because you hooked your hard drive into the protocol and then used the bytes to spam it off the Internet.
Wanda Dollard: How are we ever going to know when you actually do lose your mind?
Brent LeRoy: Dear Lacey: I hope this post card finds you well.
Lacey Burrows: What are you doing?
Brent LeRoy: I've spent the last few days in Aruba.
Lacey Burrows: What, you're a verbal post card now?
Brent LeRoy: As I'm not in Dog River right now, I can't speak to you directly. I know this must seem foolish to you, but I've never been one to bow to peer pressure... well, except for when I had that cigarette in high school... and wearing rugby pants in the eighties. I don't know... Anyway, I wish you were here in person so I could tell you this directly.
Lacey Burrows: I am there. I mean, I'm here. You're here.
Brent LeRoy: I must sign off now. We're about to land in Madrid, and Kyle, our flight attendant, has demanded I put my table tray in its upright position. He's a saucy one! See you soon. Hola! Brent.
Brent LeRoy: Dear Wanda: You can do it. Sincerely, Brent.
Wanda Dollard: Dear Brent: I don't have the pass codes to fix the machines, do I? P.S.: Your shirt's ugly.
Hank Yarbo: [joining them] Dear Brent: If you were any kind of pal, you'd bring me over there with you instead of leaving me here.
Brent LeRoy: Dear Hank: If I wanted you here, I would have stayed there.
Hank Yarbo: Dear Brent: You suck out loud! [he leaves]
Wanda Dollard: P.S.: You've got pasty white chicken legs. [she leaves]
Brent LeRoy: Dear Lacey: I can't help but get the feeling you've ruined a good thing. Wish you were here so I could thank you in person.
