[To her mom and dad] I… I know you don’t want me to, but I miss home. I miss Minnesota. You need me to be happy, but I want my old friend, and my hockey team. I wanna go home. Please don’t be mad.
Mom, Dad, come kiss me goodnight.
Do you ever look at someone and wonder, what is going on inside their head?
Isn’t this fun?
You remember how she used to stick her tongue out when she was colouring? I could listen to her stories, all day. I just wanted Riley to be happy…
But the really important ones are here. I don’t want to get too technical but these are called Core Memories. Each one came from a super important time in Riley’s life, like when she first scored a goal. That was so amazing!
This is Disgust. She basically keeps Riley from being poisoned, physically and socially.
Come on, group hug! You too, Anger.
These are Riley’s memories, and they’re mostly happy if you notice. Not to brag.
Oh, it’s that time in the twisty tree, remember? The hockey team showed up and Mom and Dad were there cheering. Look at her, having fun and laughing. It’s my favorite.
Hey, look! The golden gate bridge! Isn’t that great? It’s not made out of solid gold like we thought, which is kind of a disappointment, but still!
[After makes Riley laugh for the first time] It was amazing! Just Riley and me, forever. Um, for thirty-three seconds.
Well, I have to practice! And I don’t think of it so much as playing more so as “hugging”! Okay! First day of school! Very very exciting! I was up late last night figuring out a new plan. Here it is!
[Talk to “herself”] Joy! You’ll be in charge of the console, keeping Riley happy all day long! And did I mention I love your dress, its adorable?
Boyband Island? Hope that’s just a phase.
What was that? I though you said we were gonna “act casual”.
No! No, no, no! Breath!
All right! We did not die today, I call that an unqualified success.
I sure am glad you told me earthquakes are a myth Joy, otherwise i’d be terrified right now.
Let me guess, she forgot to put on her pants.
Can I say that curse word now?
No, Joy. There’s absolutely no reason for Riley to be happy right now. Let us handle this.
Congratulations San Francisco, you’ve ruined Pizza! First the Hawaiians, and now YOU!
Oh, I show you attitude, old man!
Don’t touch me!
[To Riley’s dad] Wait, did he just say we couldn’t have dessert? So that’s how you wanna play it old man? No dessert? Oh sure, we’ll eat our dinner, right after you eat THIS!
Well, what would you do if you’re so smart?
Might come in handy, if this new school is full of boring, useless classes. WHICH it probably will be!
This is ridiculous! We can’t even get a good nights sleep anymore. Time to take action! Stupid mom and dad hadn’t of moved us, none of this would have happened. Who’s with me?
Hey! Our life was perfect before mom and dad decided to move to… San Fran-State Town!
Okay, caution, there is a dangerous smell people. Hold on, what is that? That is not brightly colored or shaped like a dinosaur, hold on guys… it’s… broccoli! (presses buttons) Well, I just saved our lives. Yeah, you’re welcome.
When I’m through, Riley will look so good all the other kids will look at their own outfits and barf.
[To Anger] Of course your tiny brain is confused. Guess I’LL just have to dumb it down to your level! Sorry I don’t speak moron as well as you, but lemme try! Duuuuuhhhhhh!
Great idea! Anger, Fear, Disgust… HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE HAPPY?! Hm?
I Wanted To Maybe Hold One
Crying helps me slow down and obsess over the weight of life’s problems
I’m too sad to walk. Just give me a few… hours.
Okay… I’m positive that you’ll get lost in there!
Yeah, it was the day the Prairie Dogs lost the big playoff game. Riley missed the winning shot. She felt awful. She wanted to quit. Sorry, I went sad again, didn’t I?
Remember the funny movie where the dog died?
Goodbye Friendship! Hello Loneliness!
Oh, he doesn’t love us anymore. That’s sad. I-I should drive, right?
