This is our second quote arguement. This time, sources MUST be provided.
Also, there will be only one quote per round; except the last round, which we will both give 5 quotes.

People spell their name however they want, it has nothing to do with phonics or nothing. I'm not sure what phonics is, but I saw the girl that was hooked on it. She's got a problem with it apparently. Have you seen that commercial? "Hooked on Phonics worked for me" She's adorable, ya' know. I was thinking, wouldn't that be weird if she was applying what she learned and she couldn't get the commercial straight, ya' know?
"Hoookid on puh-hhonicks wer-kid for meh! HHooookid on puh-hhonicks wer-kid for meh! Meh!".
"Okay, CUT!!!"
"You talk to her, man."
"We ain't gonna move a lot tapes this way, I'm tellin ya' right now."
Anyway I met his woman, her name was ah, Amy, you know, so I go "Oh, A-M-Y?" She goes "No, A-Y-M-I-E". "Ughhh... I have to take a nap! I'm Brian, B-R-I-V-O-L-B-N, the number 7, the letter Q, --'Brennemenahgah!!!' Look at my name tag, it's, it's big.

Brian Regan Transcript–The Bicycle Incident:

One of our activities was making bike ramps out in the street. Cuz that's where all the cars are. Put a cement block out in the middle of the road and you angle a piece of wood up to it, and the object was for one kid to get on his bike, and ride as fast as he could and see how high he could go. And that's as far as we planned. It wasn't until the first kid was like flipping in the air, "What happens now?! We don't know!"

He hit a mailbox. We had a bunch of nine-year-old paramedics running up–we didn't know what to do. Get up there "Aaahhhrraaaah! Get some leaves!" (You do what you can.)

Hey that was the easy part. THe hard part was being the kid that got sent in first to calm mom down before you dragged in the actual banged up brother.

You'd have to be the point man, ya know, "Go tell mom."
"Uh-Uh-no-no."
"It's your turn."
"Uh"

So you'd have to run in, "Hey, hey mom, uh OK, uh, uh, everthing's fine."

Ya know she bought that–yeah.

"Everything's fine, I just wanted run in, at full speed. And uh, ya know, say hi, and uh, and uh, OK, so . . . Oh! You know Kevin? Uh OK, of course, OK. Well ya know like how his right arm, usually, usually, it bends, usually it would bend like that? OK, it's now bendin' like that right now. And it's no big deal cuz we already looked at it but we were thinkin' since you said that you had to go get milk later, anyway. So we were thinkin since you had to go anyway, ANYWAY, then we were all thinkin' if when you go, if you just might wanna take him to the hospital."

"And if you get peanut butter, get SMOOTH!"

I apologize that I did not give 5 quotes my last round. I now offer my opponent two choices:
1) he only gives one quote the final round
2) he lets me give my quotes in the comment section

to my opponent: my apologies
