At another point in the video, Mike states, “Safety first – what if it’s really safety third?” It’s another ridiculous type of humor because not many people actually think this way. I find it especially funny because I actually think this way. I am such a risky person and I am honestly surprised that I’m not dead yet because of that. But that’s how you get the work done. So that, to me, is funny that he brought that up.

At the fault of his father, he reacted rashly. “When Walt’s double life came to light, the revelations inflicted deep wounds. All parties suffered terrible.” This would be a negative turning point in anyone's life, but Chris was wrong to just pack up and take himself to his death. Though Chris indeed had his flaws, more evidence points to him being sane. He was moral, made decent decisions for the most part and was intelligent and likable.
The older boys are constantly rude to each other and don’t really act like friends at all. The younger boys also tend to ridicule each other but they do it in a loving, joking type of way. I think that the Gordie and his friends remind Ace of what his childhood friends were probably like and he is jealous of their carefree ways and that is why he despises them so much. They remind him of a time when things were much easier and he didn’t have to constantly be on edge and feel like he has to prove something. Dr. Steven Hanley, a psychologist specializing in male friendship discusses how when young, the love and intimacy felt towards a male friend seems natural and uncomplicated.
Antonia's argument about Family Guy is that the show may appear like it just makes fun of everything and you do not have to be smart to understand it, but it is really the opposite for the most part. She argues that you really have to be smart to understand a lot of what Family Guy does.

Most people do not enjoy talking about sensitive topics because they feel uncomfortable, so it is amazing how someone would write a play discussing one of the most sensitive topics, which is racism. I would think, many people would stay away from watching a play that could cause them to feel awkward. However, I was surprised to find out that this play is very popular, and this play was even created into a movie.
