Dib is Sick - Chapter 81
Hardly giving Dib’s question any thought at all really, Zim merely waved it off after a brief moment of consideration. “Hmmm… Well… After my Tallest sent him to the deadly planet Blorch, probably with the intention of getting rid of him, he somehow managed to conquer it… Must have been an easy mission after all.” He half mumbled to himself before looking away with a none too impressed look on his face. “…But anyways, my leaders have been trying to get rid of him since. He just keeps coming back somehow though." He then shrugged it off as though what he’d just written to the other was a common, everyday conversation topic on his planet.
"O-Oh...W-Well, I guess you should be hoping he's still alive then if you plan on asking him to bring you stuff."
"Meh…" Zim looked away to the side for a moment before noticing the expression currently on Dib's face. Not wanting to come across as uncaring, he then sighed and continued writing.

A little confused by the others explanation, Dib couldn’t help but tilt his head to the side slightly at the Irken’s words to him. "I thought Irkens only ate snacks though. At least, that's all I ever saw you eating at lunch during school." He wrote, not understanding how their food could be made from organic materials when they didn’t even have anything of the sort on their own home planet to begin with.

"No way! You can't beat the amazingness of Irken snacks! But I'll try a few more Earth snacks when I need too. That choco-whatever stuff was okay."
"Chocolate. And I'm certain there are lots of Earth snacks you'll enjoy if you just give them a try. Ha
Dib is Sick - Chapter 79
Excited to see Dib taking an interest in his species’ culture, Zim couldn’t help but answer back rather enthusiastically. “Yes! Such amazing punctuation we have…Uhm…” He grabbed the notebook to write the small symbols for Irken punctuation out along with their translation.
Tilting his head to one side, Dib watched Zim work on translating all the punctuations he could think of in that moment into Irken punctuations.
Finishing by drawing the Irken symbol at the very top of the page, Zim then handed it back to Dib.
Dib looked at the Irken symbol, then back at Zim, then back at the symbol again. "It kind of looks like you when you're not wearing your disguise." He wrote out on the others arm, reaching under the covers to retrieve the Zim doll so he could compare it to the paper. "Except not as cute..." his eyelids fell half lidded.
Blinking wide eyes open at Dib’s remark, Zim blushed and frowned, poking his tongue out a little at the other for that
