Greg: (to Katie about Anna-Kat) she cheated.

Katie: so

Greg: what did mean so she cheated.

Katie: kids can’t keep losing because everyone is giving a stupid trophy. So if she wants to win and break a few rules with it, I don’t see the problem with it.

Greg: I think that’s gonna come and bite us on the ass.

Oliver: do you wanna know who I’m more disappointed in? (about Katie) Mom! For setting such a bad example.

Katie: hey

Greg: (rudely) no. You let our kids know it’s ok to cheat and now they’re paying the price. Plus you get to keep it from me.

Katie: in my defense, I keep tons of things from you.

Greg: what?

Kathryn: oh like your so good yourself.

Taylor: yeah you always complain about grandma being a bad influence but the apple didn’t fall far from the sauce.

Oliver: see you don’t need to go to college you’re all set.

Taylor: (smiles at Katie rudely)

Kiki: (rudely) wow Katie. You have really lost control. (Walks away)

Katie: (sighs offendly)

Taylor: (rudely) well look at you Mom. With your bitchy attitude. (Smiles at Katie rudely)

Greg: you know. Taylor makes a good point. You’re judging your mom for being a poor influence on the kids and she is but your just as bad.

Katie: that is not true.

Greg: it totally is. You can dome cheating, manipulation, grape-stealing from the super market.

Kathryn: oh no that isn’t stealing it’s hospitality that’s featured ina diaphragm.

Greg: well whoever it is, he or she has no one to blame but his or herself.

Anna-Kat: stealing grapes was the only thing I was looking forward to. Now that’s bad? I’m feeling real good about dying a spinster.

Greg: right there. Generational bad influence in action your like your mom.

Kathryn: well what do you know? You grew up to be just like me.

Katie: (looks extremely sad and runs to the bathroom to start puking and crying)

Katie: (puking and crying)

Greg: Katie I’m sorry.

Kathryn: is everything ok?

Greg: yes but can you please have us a little privacy?

Kathryn: sure. (Walks away)

Greg: Katie

Katie: (crying) I would’ve been caring. (Continues crying)

Greg: aww Katie it’s ok. Aww (hugs Katie)

Taylor: I’ll did what you did. Your life was amazing.

Oliver: (rudely) that’s a terrible idea OK?

Taylor: Oliver why do you have to be so melancholy all the time?

Oliver: (looks at Taylor grossly)

Taylor: wait am I using that right? Oh no. I’m learning things.
