Clyde: Before you jump to any conclusions, let me explain how I got here. And to do that, we need to go back a few years.
Clyde: I started reading comics after my parents died. Batman, Spiderman, Superman. They all lost their parents when they were kids, so we all had something in common. Whether they can run fast, fly, breathe underwater, they were all given something that made them special. I wasn’t.
Clyde: I like my job. Plus I get to work alongside the most beautiful fast-food worker in the history of fast food. Jolene.
Clyde: What did you do?
Faith: Would it kill you to tell me I look skinny?
Clyde: You’re covered in bandages!
Faith: I know, and I still look skinny!
Randolph: Are youDo you need to talk to the doctor?
Clyde: No, I haven’t talked to the doctor since I was a kid.

Clyde: I don’t need to talk to the doctor!
Doctor: Hello Clyde…
Clyde: Hello Doctor Giggles.
Doctor: I’m worried about you. Even though you don’t need to work anymore, you haven’t quit your job.

Clyde: He was like a superhero!
Clyde: This is Clyde, I’m on a secret mission but it went sideways. It went sideways! […] Northbound on Sycamore street. On Sycamore street!
