1:I'm not good at talking to people. You can talk to me, but I can't promise I'll say anything back.
2:I like collecting seeds. So if you have some rare seeds, please show me. I'd be happy to see them.
3:Sometimes I study plants so hard that I forget all about sleep and food... Plants are sneaky that way. They can take over your life if you're not careful.
4:Before I came here, I was staying at my uncle's house. A lot of people say he's got a scary-looking face, because he does, but he's actually a really nice guy who likes plants and kids.
5:I guess sometimes I can come across as rude, or too blunt, so I end up hurting people's feelings without knowing it. So if anything I ever say offends you, please don't hesitate to tell me. I'd rather argue about it and make up afterwards than never talk about it at all... I think...our relationship is strong enough for that.
6:When I was in college, I took on all the coursework I could, because I wanted to get into research as soon as possible. Thanks to that, I got my Ph.D. early. Now I can do all the research I want. If I'd taken even one night off in all that time, I wouldn't be in this town right now.
7:I think you're one of the few people I can call...um, my friend. So tell me more about yourself... Starting now, I want to understand you as much as you understand me. And someday, I want to be...your b-best friend...!
