Stacy, are you ready for cheer practice?
YES, mom. God, why can't we get a Betamax?
A Betamax. I'm missing this new show I like. OH - LOOK!
Ugh. Stupid Mrs. Conover moving it to the night. If it was after school--
Stacy, watch your language.
Fine, I'm going.
(One week later)
Stacy, isn't your show on now?
Oh my god! OK, Linda, I'll call you after. Bye. (pause) Mom, if you're gonna be in here, you have to be quiet.
(sigh) Fine, I'll fold the laundry in the kitchen.
WHAT?! Crap! Why are they doing this?
Stacy! Your language!
I'm calling channel 2. Oh - sorry, Dad. Let me know when you're off the phone.
What happened to your show?
It's not on. Some cartoon thing on instead.
Oh, well...you can help me fold the sheets.
Why do they have to ruin all the good shows?
I don't know, honey. I don't know.
