  • You're not like me, Nathan. I would have killed a man who took my little girl.


Jessie: What's your name?
Max: [ignores her]
Jessie: Your hair's really long! My hair used to be that long, but my mom made me cut it.
Jessie: [points to her neck] What's that thing on your neck?
Max: [stares at Jessie and looks back down]
Jessie: It's kind of impolite not to answer someone's question.
Max: It's a symbol.
Jessie: What's it mean?
Max: Don't talk!

Aggie: You brush your teeth?
Jessie: Yep!
Aggie: Let me smell.
Jessie: [opens mouth]
Aggie: Mmmmm. Delicious.

Jessie: [laughs]
Nathan: [laughs] Can you speak to your mother, please?!

Jessie: You had a bad day!
Nathan: Why do you say that?
Jessie: [copies Nathan] Frown faceeeeee!
