Ethan: Why are you judging me? You have food. You eat exactly half of your food.

Simon: I checked your Short Bread Cookies and I didn’t find any short breads.

Ethan: man! You have got to stop eating all of the food around here.

Simon: Yeah but what about these popped corns.

Ethan: tell me you did not eat the cake I left for mom. . .

Simon: I did not eat the delicious cake you left for mom.

Simon: I think I could be a skateboarding dog. I don’t believe this Tone Knee Hawk guy. It doesn’t look so difficult…

Ethan : I wish you would hurry up and get it done. Then we both could retire. Oh look, this is where he fractured his pelvis and gets a concussion…

Simon: On second thought, I think I’ll keep doing nothing and then retire. If I do a career, I would have to have elbow patches and licenses. And I’ve got that bad knee.

Ethan: Which one?

Simon: I just told you, the bad one. *pay* attention.

L: Simon! Bad dog! 

Ethan: What did he do? 

(Simon walks in) 

Ethan: What did you do?

Simon: Absolutely NOTHING

(L stands in the door holding trash from the bin)

Simon: Honest. 

Ethan: Sure. 

Simon: Say dad. You should really go back to work. You’re going to get fired! Since mom quit her job, I’ve been getting yelled at a LOT more.

Ethan: Simon, we’re on vacation. 

Simon No you’re not! When you go to the vacation I get dumped at grandmas and you come back smelling like strange dirts. 

Ethan: I never thought you noticed

Simon: I’m man’s best friend and I will not let you throw your car-reer away just because mom quit her job.   

Ethan: We’re on vacation buddy. 

Simon: fine, I will rough it  with you. I’m part wolf. Let’s see, My dog food is only 60 dollars. Well, I don’t know what dollars are or what it means but that sounds VERY reasonable. 

Ethan: I’ll just cut out coffee instead. 

Simon: Remember I need three blankets and a pillow that’s not too hot or too cold, for when you’re selling things at that thrifty fleas market.

Ethan: oh you’re a real Daniel Boone. I’ll warn the next frontier.

Simon: Hey dad. Why do we listen to the Jazz while we cook.

Ethan: I don’t know, I guess  jazz and beer and food go together… it’s how I relax.

Simon: Oh. Ok. Like mom takes naps?

Ethan: (laughs) I guess so. 

Simon: I don’t think I’ve heard this one yet. Is it new?
Ethan: Well, it’s  Sinatra so it’s about 70 years old. 

Simon: WOW

Simon: Hi dad! So how is the work? 

Ethan: You can’t keep calling me like this… 

Simon: Listen, mom is still asleep. We need to discuss lunch. What are we having today? 

Ethan: We still have plenty of time… 

Plenty of time later 

Ethan: Simon! I’m home! Ready for lunch??

Simon: Dad! Hey dad!! You always come home at just the right time.

Ethan: You knew I was coming …

Simon: all of these apartment doors look the same.. how did you know where I was? 

Ethan: They’re  numbered…

Simon: What is “numbered?”
