Neighborhood kids [as Richard comes out to play]: “Yay! It’s Richard!”
Isaac: “Why would you want to play with him? He can’t even run!”
[Sound of Richard running down impudent child and tickling him.]
Isaac [to Richard]: “Stop calling Paige ‘princess’. She’s not a princess, she’s an old lady.”
Paige: “Are there berries in this?”
Richard: “Mulberries. Or rat poop.” [Paige’s spoon pauses; look of anger]
Richard: “Sorry, sorry. I forgot.”
Paige: “Forgot what? That I’m normal?”
Isaac: “Look, my hat matches my shirt.”
Paige: “That’s nice, but you’re naked from the waist down.”
Isaac: “Oh, good point”
Isaac [looking at Adventure Science MT photos]: “What are those blue shoes?”
Richard: “Those are Simon’s. He has bad taste.”
Isaac [horrified]: “YOU LICKED HIM?!?!”
A guest Isaacism, from Natalie or Katherine (twins-I can’t tell them apart) [at the playground]: “You’re not like our dad. He has a job and has to do stuff.”
Isaac: “I can do it! I’m big years old!” [pause] [giggles]
Isaac: “Don’t seed my sandbox!”
If you focus on what you want, you can do anything. So I focused on the stars and killed Princess Peach.
Isaac: “Did you bring me a gift?”
Richard: “Yes!” [gives present to Isaac].
Isaac: “Did you bring one for Mom?”
Richard: “Um, uh. . . .”
Isaac: “You know, like a cough drop.”
Richard: “Yes! Yes I did!.” [Takes cough drop from pocket, Isaac runs it to his Mom].
