** Thank you Main/CaptainObvious.



*** No he's not. Green eggs and ham are not drugs.



** But it wasn't an accident that made them green!



* [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 You know, why doesn't he just leave him alone? He has pointedly made his refusal to eat this dish clear! The mere hypothetical changing of a location is irrelevant and tedious! And, and that "Sam I Am" is so bloody repetitive I could scream!]]
* Wouldn't the big guy have had an easier time if he just straight-up told Sam-I-Am to his face to fuck off? At the most, he could have threatened to kill him or call the police for home invasion, stalking, and kidnapping.

** Not meaning to be a [[Main/KnightTemplar Knight Templar]], but aren't you reading somewhat disturbing meanings into a children's book? I always sort of saw it as a story with the moral that "you won't even know if you liked something- until you actually ''try'' it yourself!" Granted, Sam does carry on with this more than a real person probably would, but how else are you going to fill a book and get all those rhymes in? Again, not meaning to be overly zealous, just saying.

I just realized something...SAM-I-AM IS A FREAKING MANIAC!
* Thank you Main/CaptainObvious.
* Considering that a sane person would just find someone else to offer the dish to, I concur, unless Sam has an ''ulterior'' motive.
* He's like a drug-pusher?

* Sam is that annoying kid from school who would ''never'' [[MotorMouth stop talking]] to you!
* Sam is trying to get Sam-I'm-Not to accept the part of their food supply that was dyed green in a storage accident, so that he will be able to survive until it's safe to leave the bomb shelter.
