    Social Interaction

    Grinch: Well done, Max! Serves them right, those yuletide-loving... sickly-sweet, nog-sucking cheer mongers! I really don't like 'em. Mm-mm. No, I don't. Max! Get my cloak. I've been much too tolerant of these Who-venile delinquents... and their innocent, victimless pranks. So, they wanna get to know me, do they? They want to spend a little quality time with the Grinch. I guess I could use a little... social interaction.
