Foster have her pink puppy watch the marbles run on the
track she and I built, instead of calling me (I am
cleaning nearby) to "look look look" at each run. Now
she calls me to "look look look" how her puppy is
watching the marbles run.

Jordana Sternberg Foster, having observed me having a
bite of ice cream while preparing her dessert: "Did you
have your nutritious food first?" Nothing like a little
positive brainwashing. ("How can you have any pudding
if you don't eat your meat?")

Jordana Sternberg What's with the cross-dressing
elephant on Sesame Street? (Foster's take, despite the
fact its name is "Horatio" and it speaks in a male
voice: "That elephant is a girl because she is wearing
a dress and a crown.")
