“I didn’t get drunk I’m just telling you what it is.”

“Cytokines can cause clonal expansion, like they did in Star Wars.”

“No! This is not Sonic! You can’t slow me down!”

“Oh no I shouldn’t have said that. I’m going to kick myself.”

“It’s like a meat grinder. You put the cow on one side and get meat on the other. Don’t tell the veterinarians that. They will kill me!”
