* '''Discussed''': "Alice is a bit odd, isn't she? I mean, with the [[LonersAreFreaks never wanting anything to do with other people]] and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} odd behavior]] and what not. Should we ask about her home situation?"
* '''Conversed''':
** "Well, look here, it's another weirdo character! They're going to reveal that her parents are cavemen or something, aren't they?"
** "Everything anyone says steps on SOMEONE'S toes somewhere, whether they know it or not. I'm not going to bend over backwards trying to please everyone: I'm going to do and say what I feel like. At least then I GET something out of it.
* '''Deconstructed''': Alice suffers neglect and ostracism, and is considered a second-class citizen due to her strangeness.
