    Good use of the subjunctive by Jef (were vs. was).

    With prepositional phrases as sentences.

    If money was no object, I’d live in a place where ownership of a coat wasn’t required.

    If they had repeated the entire sentence, as given, they would have looked like they’d been hit in the head by a brick as a child. There’s nothing wrong with speaking the way they are. The natural flow makes it immediately obvious what the entire sentence is.

    There’s a difference between conversation and literature.
    The proper punctuation could have called for an ellipsis to show a pause between panels. Conversation is so much less formal in grade school that it is difficult to capture as a hard copy.

    Oh, I certainly wish for the cold to come back. When it gets colder, you can always put on more layers, but there’s a limit to how many you can take off when it gets hot.

    As a script for a play, the first sentence in each pair would have had a comma (rather than a sentence-ending period) so the prepositional phrase would have been clearly part of the same sentence. The problem then becomes, Would people understand the comma at the end of a speech bubble to mean that the sentence is incomplete, or would people immediately assume that the comma was an error?

    As long as you pay heed to the difference between hotdog buns and hot dog buns.

    With Global Climate Change via Global Warming the weather in your area can change. It can be hot or hotter than you remember or cold or colder than you remember. Too dry, too wet, floods and droughts beside each other. We did something to the climate that affects the weather. So something has been done and it isn’t good.
