The girls often discuss what sort of dog they are at the moment, and Quinn was in the midst of running through a list of what color Labrador retriever she was.
Quinn: "I'm a black lab, no a white lab, no a brown lab ..."
Celeste: "chocolate lab!"
Quinn: "..., no a yellow lab, no a green lab, no a teal lab, no an orange lab, no a purple lab, ..."
Celeste: "No, no, no! You're a lavender retriever!"

I have had plenty of times when I strode into another room full of purpose only to realize that I had no idea what I had intended to do.
At this moment, the girls were both playing with Play-Doh and running around while Evelin and I both did a little work. Celeste ran upstairs, I heard her door open, and then "Now, why did I come up here?"
Eventually she figured it out though ... she wanted to get a book for me to read.

While we were sitting around and talking, Quinn burst out with her comedy stylings.
Quinn: "Knock knock! Who dere?"
Me: "Who's there?"
Quinn: "Uhm, strawberry!"
Me: "Strawberry Who?"
Quinn: "Hahahahahahaha [pause] Can I come in?"
Evelin later told me that K---, Quinn and Celeste's cousin who was visiting earlier in the week was doing the classic banana, banana, banana, orange knock-knock routine, which is probably why Quinn picked a strawberry for the setup to her punch line.
