I'm not here to make friends either...I'm like Mr. Rogers, I'm here to make neighbors.

Now, if I was only neighbors with Jessica Alba..................

(Note: co-worker asked me the stupidest question of the year tonite -- "Jessica Alba, yes or no?", as in 'would I?'. My answer was "HHEEEELLLLLLLLLLL YYYEEEEAAAAHHHHH!" He then said, "Even in front of the wife, eh?" *He's married, I'm 2x divorced*; I said, "SH** -- ON THE WIFE!")

I've never liked "reality" TV. The main reason it is foisted on the American public so much is that it is cheap to produce. It requires no big actor names, no special effects other than what a basic video editor does, and the people who are on it usually get paid nothing. The only real thing that costs money is the building where the contestants are housed in, and a core soundstage for announcing the winner.

Even gameshows, with just their single stage, cost more money because they have to keep the salary of a big name who is hosting it.

I prefer buying a new stuffed animal and positioning it on the bed. Sometimes "suggestively."

I can relate. It likes a bath, but the fur keeps sticking to my tongue.

At least one of them was there to make friends.

"I ain't here to make no friends" = "I am here to make friends".

I have a feeling the too guys that appeared together, around 00:50 are good "friends". Not that there is anything wrong with that.
