I'm a always-liker [name of game]" (Mac version only) [[note]]Again, no "of," plus he actually does say he's "''a'' always-liker" instead of "''an'' always-liker."[[/note]], "You must've make a jump'm now." "Pizza the heck out of me!"[[note]]When doing a sardonic knock-knock joke while when the player is stalling.[[/note]], "Jamaica the who?" [[note]]another sardonic knock-knock joke ("Jamaica me cuckoo crazy!")[[/note]], "I'm-a go first."[[note]]"I go first" with a combination of his accent and fractured grammar[[/note]], "I'm-a know!"[[note]]"I know" with another accent-grammar issue combination[[/note]], "I'm-a lost."[[note]]"I lost" with another accent-grammar issue combination[[/note]], "Pirhana Plantae", "Ah...I'm-a guess I'm-a go fishing.", and "Doubles!
