“And like, when I see Bobi and I think why everyone gets along with Bobi is he’s just a free-spirit person that loves to be around positive people, good people that embrace life, people that have a lot of personalities that are in line.”

“He’s somebody that brings joy to your own day because you realize his positive energy is just a real thing. When we were hanging out, it made me appreciate my life and the things that I get to do just by seeing his type of energy.”
“We’re different, but we’re the same, you know? If you ask me why [we get along so well], this is the same [in regards to] the relationship with my wife. We don’t watch the same movies, we don’t listen to the same music. But we have something in common where, together, we make one great person.”
