MM: I’m a cheetah. Just because I’m super fast.
JR: I’m taking a quiz right now to see what my spirit animal is.
JM: I’m from Kentucky, so racehorse will do for me. I can’t think of anything else.
JW: You can put me down as a housecat. I like attention—that can be the reason. I’m curious. Can you put my reason is because I’m curious?
MM: Conor says he’s a sloth because he spends all his time on the couch.

MM: For Conor just put “Conor can’t close.”
JW: Jack’s could be trying to take a charge for a girl at a pickup basketball game and not getting the call.
JM: The first time we met Joe was…we were doing laundry the next day…
JW: The next day I was doing laundry and several people came up to me and said, “Oh. I’m glad to see you’re alright” and I didn’t know who they were.
