Jimmy met old classmate Slyvia:

Jimmy: Did we kiss? I mean, in high school, we kissed, didn't we?
Slyvia: That has got to be the worst thing anyone has ever said to me.
(Slyvia left him by driving away by her van)
Jimmy: Hold on, hold on, wait, wait! I'm saying I remember is all!

what is the meaning of "remember is all"?

"I'm saying I remember is all" is a different way of saying "All I'm saying is that I remember" or "I'm just/only saying that I remember".

And again, this author is reproducing casual, spoken American English. You can't use this construction in the written language except in dialogs.

Ems is a she. And she never makes mistakes. She just likes to leave stuff for me to do.

I think emsr2d2 forgot to correct this line while quoting my thread.

Assuming that everybody who answers your questions is male shows disrespect to the female members of the forum.

If you don't know emsr2d2's gender you can write '... while they quoted my thread'.
