  23. Let’s be seagulls
  24. Put it on the hood
  25. Scooped out of the chute
  26. Trying to chase too many rabbits and not catching any
  27. Consensed
  28. Let’s not let a few details ruin a good story
  29. The pig in the snake
  30. Jump through a brick wall
  31. Cheeks in the seats
  32. The challenge is to decide what the challenge is
  33. The objective is the goal
  34. We have to find a way to achieve the objective
