I forgot.
I didn't understand.
Those aren't my shoes.
My name is not Stephon, it's Henry.
I don't ski.
I have the flu.
How was I suppose to know that was your carpet?
No, that's not my dog.
Do I look like I wanna be in Cuba?
The reason I ate the last truffle was because I bought them myself.
It's not my fault I'm angry! You got me this way!
I certainly didn't know about the volcano.
Do I look like a scientist to you?
You peed on me first.
I didn't say that.
I have a headache.
I wasn't listening.
You weren't listening.
I don't know.
I'm color-blind.
