Og: Well, I like peas, and I like cake. But last year, Lu set my clothes on fire lighting the candles.
Margery: Oh, I'm sure she didn't mean to, dear.
Og: And then she set my hair on fire trying to put out the clothes.
Margery: Yes, well...
Og: And Dad made me go hunting with him. I hate hunting.
Margery: I'd say the best thing is to tell the truth. Just tell him you don't want to go. He's your father, he'll listen to you.
(Alfred walks in)
Og: Dad, I don't want to go hunting.
Alfred: Jolly good then! A-hunting we will go!

"Birthdays really aren't Jim's thing. They always remind him of the day when his dad disappeared. Not 'magic' disappeared, more like 'walked out, cause he's a dead-beat' disappeared. I just moved into the house across the street, and Jim's dad got him this sweet bike kit for his fifth birthday, and then he just took off. The pieces laid there in the garage for years. Last I heard, the guy ran off with his girlfriend to be a ski-bum in Vermont."
Toby to Blinky, Trollhunters, "Bittersweet Sixteen"
