Ethan: It’s a nice one! I myself am a collector, too. I collect coins.

I sometimes make prank calls, just for the fun of it!

Merlyn: Hmm...is that all you do for fun?!
Kyle: No, no. I also like to collect tea bag covers.
Merlyn: Err..you collect tea bags for fun?! Sorry to say pal, but it doesn’t sound that much fun either.
Kyle: What can I say? People are different...
Merlyn: Oh, I couldn’t agree more...
