1. a. Yes. b. You will become sick. Actually, I don't eat watermelon, but not for that reason. I don't like it.

2. a. The first episode wasn't as good as the best episodes will be. But the best episodes won't be as good as you seem to think they are, but they will be better than pretty much every other comedy on television (other than Arrested Development). b. You are not crazy.

3. a. Regret's not bad. It's "lessons we havn't learned yet" according to Beth Orton. I don't know if she's right. b. Regret is fear.

4. a. Indian's don't taste good and it's like eating a cat. Not enough meat on the bones of the average Indian for the middle american SUV set. b. see a.

5. a. Yes. b. Yes.

6. a. The team who dares wins. b. No.
