Katie: OK. Ground rules for tonight. Taylor’s in charge and they’re could be no more disasters.

Taylor: What do you mean by disasters?

Greg: Last time we let you babysit, you guys played hide and seek and gave up without looking for Anna Kat. She was zipped in a suitcase for five hours.

Oliver: We didn’t give up. We just never looked.

Katie: (to Taylor) This is your last shot. If you can’t prove that you’re responsible then you can’t go to the concert with your friends next week. Got it?

Taylor: Got it.

Greg: This dinner we’re going to is important so don’t call unless it’s really an emergency.

Katie: That means call from the hospital.

Anna-Kat: Ooh you guys are so screwed (giggles).

Taylor: alright I’m not doing it.

Katie: Taylor, I know she annoys you a lot, but her and I are doing reward systems and she needs to remember what she’s working for. She is annoying you guys as well but she is having tallies on the system board and for annoying you, she’s been losing tallies. And I know it’s hard with Anna-Kat annoying you. But she loves you and you love her too. Right?

Taylor: Right. But I’ve had enough with her annoying me and her giggly sounds. I’m not doing it.

Anna-Kat: (gasps sadly and gives Taylor puppy eyes)

Kristina: huh. I haven’t seen Anna-Kat give Taylor puppy eyes.

Molly: yeah. On one of the things that Anna-Kat can get really happy about. The last time Anna-Kat gave Taylor puppy eyes was the day before Doris’ charity.

Anna-Kat: Please Taylor, Please? (continues with the puppy eyes)

Taylor: no.

Anna-Kat: (continues with the puppy eyes for Taylor) I won’t annoy you. You don’t have to play with me tomorrow.

Taylor: I don’t know.

Anna-Kat: but please Taylor. I'll give you lots and lots of hugs. Please? (continues with the puppy eyes and breaks down in tears while doing it to Taylor) (hugs Taylor while teary-eyed and Taylor hugs her it's ok) (both stop hugging and Anna-Kat sniffles)

Taylor: (sighs) fine I’ll help you.

Anna-Kat: yay. (Clapping) you’re my favorite sibling ever. (Both hug)

Taylor: Anna-Kat, dinner. (To Oliver) tonight is just a night. You and Anna-Kat are my responsibility. Nothing can go wrong, no one can get hurt.

Anna-Kat: Taylor, I need your help with it. You get what I’m saying?

Taylor: no.

Anna-Kat: Oliver, you get what I’m saying? Wait. That could be a rap song for me because I love rap and it’s my favorite kind. Taylor here. I’ll do it and now you’ll get what I’m doing. OK?

Taylor: ok.

Anna-Kat: (clears throat) (rapping) you get what I’m saying. But I love Taylor. You get what I’m saying. But Oliver is sometimes mean and rude but I love to annoy Taylor and Oliver so much but I give them puppy eyes to Taylor a lot because she’s always had enough with me and so I give her puppy eyes with a sad face and a sad mouth just like what 8 year olds do it. And I’m 8 so I always get my act together sometimes but my mama and daddy always ground me because I was annoying Taylor and Oliver, but I love them but I love Taylor so much because she’s my favorite sibling. (Talking) that’s how my song for you works Taylor. But here. I have it on photos on the iPad for you and you’re gonna be so screwed. (Giggles) (shows the video to Taylor)

(during the video) Katie: Taylor, this is your last shot. If you don’t help Anna-Kat with the assembly then you’re not going to the concert with your friends next week. (Anna-Kat stops the video)

Anna-Kat: (chuckles) you’re not gonna go to the concert with your friends next week. And PS, you’re gonna be so grounded forever. (Giggles)

Taylor: really? Show me how happy writing works then and tell me how you little baby.

Molly: (laughing hysterically because of what Taylor said to Anna-Kat)

Anna-Kat: (giggles) (to Taylor) you’re gonna be so grounded forever and ever and ever. (Giggles)

Taylor: (rudely) show me how happy writing works then tell me how you little baby.

Anna-Kat: (fake voice breaking) ow Taylor knocked out my tooth. (Regular voice) happy writing. (Giggles)

Taylor: UGH (gets the dinner and tries to dump it in Anna-Kat’s hooha)

Anna-Kat: oh she’s gonna put the food in my hooha. I’m so scared. (Gets scared)

Oliver: woah woah woah. Enough. Taylor, remember what happened at the end of September, the stuffed shells were in Anna-Kat’s hooha and Mom had to take her to the doctor to get the sauce out?

Taylor: (sighs) yeah.

Oliver: I think you owe Anna-Kat an apology.

Taylor: (to Anna-Kat) I’m sorry.

Anna-Kat: I accept your apology. I’m sorry for annoying you about the assembly and you not gong to the concert with your friends.

Taylor: I accept your apology. (Both hug)

Anna-Kat: sounds like a writing problem. (picks the spoon up) make it work.

Taylor: that’s it. I’m done. I’m going upstairs because you are being too lazy and rude. (Goes upstairs)

Anna-Kat: Taylor wait

Taylor: WHAT?

Anna-Kat: hey don’t be aggressive to me. I'm not being aggressive to you. Right?

Taylor: (sighs) Right.

Anna-Kat: I’m being too lazy and rude, that hurt my feelings.

Taylor: I don’t care. I’m going up anyway.

Anna-Kat: Taylor please stay. I’m sorry.

Taylor: I don’t care.

Anna-Kat: I’m serious. I’m sorry Taylor for being rude to you. Please forgive me. Please? (Gives Taylor puppy eyes) (hugs Taylor)

Taylor: (hugs Anna-Kat back) I accept your apology.

Anna-Kat: (feels happy)

Katie: you guys still need to be doing Anna-Kat’s project when we get home.

Anna-Kat: another punishment for them. That’s so happy (giggles)

Taylor and Oliver: (both glare at Anna-Kat)

Anna-Kat: alright I’m sorry. Now give me a taste of your ice cream.

Sonny: (On the Phone) So putting them on the sheets will be cool is that what you want? Great. Thank you. (hangs up)

Katie: Oh (walks backstage looking for Anna-Kat) Anna-Kat, Anna-Kat, (finds Anna-Kat backstage and sees her crying) (sighs) My baby, are you ok?

Anna-Kat: (sniffles) No. (continues crying)

Katie: what's wrong?

Anna-Kat: I got stage fright. (continues crying)

Katie: Aw my baby princess sweetheart it's ok. (touches Anna-Kat's back and rubs it while Anna-Kat is still crying) Sometimes We get stage fright and you do too. Right?

Anna-Kat: Mm-hmm. (sniffles) but I can't do it mama. With all those people starring at me. (continues crying)

Katie: Come here. (Both hug and Katie rubs Anna-Kat's back and rubs it during their hug while Anna-Kat is still crying) it's ok my baby princess sweetheart it's ok. (Both hug more) I understand. (shushes Anna-Kat while Anna-Kat is still crying) It's ok relax.

Kristina: Oh good god. This is the worst part ever. Me and Taylor might not go to the concert with our friends, Oliver might not want to buy sneakers and Anna-Kat has stage fright.

Carly: This is the worst part ever.

Sam: I agree.

(both Taylor and Oliver applaud but stop slowly because of the mess they made)

Katie: you’re so not going to the concert with your friends. Are you two crazy? What were you thinking?

Oliver: (about Anna-Kat) she got mad at us and let us do it until dinner.

Anna-Kat: you’re so right I did and you have been screwed. You’re sometimes stupid. Aw poor Oliver. You are gonna be so grounded for the rest of your life. (Giggles)

Katie: is this true Anna-Kat?

Taylor: she also annoyed me about me not going to the concert with my friends.

Anna-Kat: I sure did because I annoy her a lot sometimes. Aw poor Taylor who’s not gonna be able to go to the concert with her friends next week. You’re gonna be so grounded forever. (Giggles)

Katie: is this also true Anna-Kat?

Anna-Kat: (chuckles and talks to Taylor) you’re not going to the concert with your friends anymore. And PS, you are so grounded forever. Aw poor Taylor. She’s not gonna go to the concert with her friends next week anymore and now she’s grounded forever. (Giggles)

Taylor: ugh are you kidding me? Mom

Anna-Kat: (still annoying Taylor) don’t tell me. Tell your mommy. She got you in trouble and PS, you’re so grounded forever. (Giggles)

Taylor: ugh are you kidding me again? Mom

Katie: Taylor listen, I understand Anna-Kat annoys you but she does but I’ll tell her right now but you’re not gonna go to the concert with your friends but I know she annoys you and it bothers you, but don’t worry. You and I will find out what the results for you are.

Anna-Kat: Taylor is so grounded forever. (Giggles)

Katie: Anna-Kat, if you keep annoying Taylor about her not going to the concert with her friends, you’re gonna lose a tally. Remember what your working for? Right?

Anna-Kat: yes mama. I’m sorry Taylor.

Taylor: I accept your apology. (Starts crying)

Anna-Kat: aw. (Both hug and rub each other’s backs during it)

Anna-Kat: I know. I love my monkey so much with all my heart.

Katie: aww you are so sweet to him.

Anna-Kat: uh-huh. I am because he knows that I’m in the living room and I don’t know what if he is still going to be on his own when we sell him.

Katie: we are not going to sell him sweetie, we would never sell your stuffed animals.

Anna-Kat: mama, can I go on the iPad during the ride?

Katie: no.

Anna-Kat: but mama.

Katie: you heard me. No.

Greg: Katie where do I turn?

Katie: we’re almost on the Cross Island Parkway. Turn left in a couple minutes.

Greg: OK.

Anna-Kat: mama

Katie: you’re not asking me about the iPad.

Anna-Kat: but mama

Katie: no buts. Not happening.

Anna-Kat: but mama I was trying to do something and it’s never fair to you.

Katie: because I’m the adult and you’re the child.

Lulu: and you gotta respect her because you don’t even listen to her sometimes and it’s very important that you listen to her every day.

Anna-Kat: (voice breaking) great. Now I’m not allowed to go on the iPad today. (Crying)

Katie: you should be learning about this lesson that I’m teaching you right now. You have to pay attention that life isn’t all about you. And if we keep this up, there’s gonna be consequences. When we say no for the iPad it’s a hard no. Discussion’s over.

Anna-Kat: but mama

Katie: I said over. You heard me. If we keep this up, the iPad is gone for a week.

Anna-Kat: (crying) but mama I just want to play the most game on it.

Katie: well no. I said no and we’re respecting that. Period.

Anna-Kat: (crying) but it’s not ok and I just wanted it so bad because it’s my favorite time of the day and I just wanted it. This is why I’m dealing with it.

Katie: don’t talk back to me. Do we need to be grounded for a month?

Anna-Kat: (still crying) no.

Katie: then get your act together. We are not using the iPad. Period.

Anna-Kat: (hides her hair in her face and hugs her stuffed animal bird while crying)

Katie: (hears Anna-Kat crying in the back of the car and ignores it)

Dwight: still in a meltdown? (Laughs)

Angela: That can be funny.

Katie: (groans)

Elizabeth: Hey Sam,

Sam: (looks at Elizabeth)

Elizabeth: How come Patrick and Emma aren’t coming?

Elizabeth: Thank god even more. (Laughs)

Sam: And Robin’s mom as well.

Elizabeth: Thank god even more more. (Laughs)

Katie: (to Anna-Kat) Sweetheart, I need you to get your hair out of your face. (Anna-Kat gets her hair out of her face and Katie sees her tears)

Hayden: (about Anna-Kat) Why was her hair in her face?

Elizabeth: because she was crying.

Hayden: Oh dear.

Elizabeth: Yeah. I know.

Katie: (to Anna-Kat) Sweetheart I know you want the iPad but life isn’t all about you. It’s about everyone. I’m sorry that you’re crying because you want the iPad but you have to earn it. We have to earn a tally off the reward systems list. You lost one when you talked back to me. It’s not ok.

Anna-Kat: (continues crying) But I just wanted it today. (Continues crying)

Katie: I know you want it today but we can have it tomorrow. Only if you behave for me, your father and everyone else who watches you.

Lulu: oh good god when are we gonna be at the fair already with this (bleep) traffic?

Greg: right now we’re on the center field with this. (Laughs)

Kristina: (glares at Greg)

Greg: Sorry.

Carly: (to Katie) Never mind the fact that Doris and Angela are coming.

Katie: Yeah. They might be there now.

Carly: Oh good.

Taylor: Dad, when are we getting there?

Greg: we will be getting there in a couple minutes.

Taylor: OK. (Checks her phone and looks at texts from her friends)

Elizabeth: Where the hell is my pocketbook?

Molly: it’s right here.

Elizabeth: Oh, perfect. Thank you. (Takes her pocketbook from Molly)

Kiki: Katie how long does it take us?

Greg: We have a couple minutes till we get there.

Kiki: Thanks Greg.

Drew: Sam, is Shiloh coming to the fair today?

Sam: Unfortunately, he’s not because he has something going on with his family.

Drew: ok.

Dwight: If we were all rich, we would go out to dinner with each other every day. Which means all of us but we are going out to dinner tonight because Katie made that decision. So HALLELUJAH!


Everyone: HALLELUJAH! (Cheering)

Katie: Yes. We all are. And besides, tonight is Taylor and Kristina’s concert. We have to be at the school by 7:45. The concert starts at 8.

Hayden: (looks at a notification from Facebook) How the hell did Cameron Mathison got fired from Entertainment Tonight?

Sam: He had sex with Nancy O’Dell.

Hayden: Oh gosh.

Elizabeth: That’s never happened to them before.

Anna-Kat: (still crying)

Carly: (looks at Anna-Kat) Katie,

Katie: Yeah, (sees Anna-Kat still crying and sighs) Anna-Kat sweetheart I know you want the iPad but we gotta earn it off the reward systems list. You’re 8 now and I’ve never been rude to you until you were giving me attitude. It’s not ok.

Anna-Kat: (crying) yeah but I just wanted it. (Continues crying)

Katie: do I have the iPad with me?

Greg: Yeah you do.

Katie: Thanks Greg. Anna-Kat, you need to learn that life isn’t all about you. It’s about everyone. You are the one who’s being rude. You.

Anna-Kat: (continues crying more, hides her hair in her face and hugs her stuffed animal bird while crying)

Katie: (sighs because she still made Anna-Kat cry)

Carly: if this happened all the time if Anna-Kat was crying because Taylor got her license, Anna-Kat would’ve cried more because she missed Taylor.

Elizabeth: I 100% agree with you on that Carly.

Katie: (sighs, goes in the back of the car and touches Anna-Kat’s arms while Anna-Kat is still crying) I understand you want them back I know. (Rubs Anna-Kat’s back) However, you can’t always get what you want. Do you get what I’m saying?

Anna-Kat: (in a sad tone) mm-hmm. (Wipes her tears from her eyes)

Katie: (sighs and keeps comforting Anna-Kat)

Hayden: Why are you in the back of the car?

Katie: Because Anna-Kat seems very emotional.

Hayden: Do you want me to sit in the front?

Katie: Sure. I’d be very appreciative.

Hayden: (goes in the front seat next to Greg)

(when they were at the Holtsville street fair)

Greg: We’re here.

Everyone: (cheering and they check their phones for internet before they get out of the car)

Katie: Alright. Let’s get things ready. (Gets out of the back seat)

Taylor: Which one is the fair?

Katie: That one.

Taylor: OK.

Sam: Are you kidding me? I don’t get my internet free at this fair and it always happens. It only comes when I’m at the Otto house and it doesn’t work in the car? Damn it.

Pam: Yeah mine doesn’t work too.

Kelly: So does mine.

Taylor: Neither does mine too.

Angela: We can’t get to the internet. Give me a (bleep) break.

Kristina: How do I hook up to the (bleep) WiFi?

Michael: (reads the sentence he has on his phone) No internet sensation. (Gets angry and bangs his seat) god damn it.

(Doris and Angela smile and wave hi to everyone)

Doris: Katie, Carly, Sam, Elizabeth, Ava, Hayden, Jason, Drew, Everyone.

Ava: Oh. It’s them. Thank god.

Sam: (gasps happily) DORIS! (Runs to Doris)

Doris: (runs to Sam and they both hug and scream in excitement)

Sam: Oh my god. I can’t believe you came.

Doris: Yeah. Angela should be out any minute.

Sam: Oh good.

Oliver: Mom, I desperately need to find a perfect way for my new sneakers that I need in a couple weeks.

Katie: relax don’t even worry. Anna-Kat,

Anna-Kat: (looks at Katie sadly when she is still crying and hugging her stuffed animal bird)

Katie: come out of the car so I can talk to you.

Anna-Kat: (comes out of the car)

Katie: I know what you need.

Anna-Kat: I just wish I wanted it. (Continues crying and hugging her stuffed animal bird)

Katie: I know sweetie. Come here. (Both hug and Katie rubs Anna-Kat’s back during their hug while Anna-Kat is still crying and her stuffed animal bird joins in) It’s ok. Sometimes, I have to not give you the iPad because you get fresh with me. Do you understand what I’m saying?

Anna-Kat: uh-huh. (Sniffles and wipes her tears away)

Katie: Remember what I said. You can’t always get what you want.

Anna-Kat: I know.

Katie: (sighs sadly and rubs Anna-Kat’s back) Do you wanna stay with me for the entire fair?

Anna-Kat: (continues crying) mm-hmm.

Katie: What do you have to say to me?

Anna-Kat: (Continues crying) I’m sorry mama for the way I talked to you. (Voice breaking) I’m sorry. (Continues crying)

Katie: I accept your apology. Come here. (Her and Anna-Kat hug and Katie rubs her back during the hug while Anna-Kat is still crying) it’s ok honey. Let’s walk together. (Both hug while walking)

Taylor: Mom, where do you want the money?

Katie: Don’t worry. I’ll take it. (Takes the money from Taylor) thanks sweetie.

Taylor: (walks away)

Katie: (to Anna-Kat) I know. I know. But you have your stuffed animal bird with you.

Anna-Kat: mm-hmm. (Sniffles)

Katie: (rubs Anna-Kat’s back) listen, we are a family. I’m not going anywhere. You’re 8 now and you have to get your act together. It’s always important. And it’s ok that you were crying the entire car ride.

Anna-Kat: I know but Taylor and Oliver are using their phones whatever they want because they’re adults and I’m the kid and I have to get a couple minutes on electronics. It’s not fair. (Continues crying and hugging her stuffed animal bird)

Katie: I know. (Both hug while Anna-Kat is still crying) (says this sentence during the hug) I know it’s hard. It’s ok my sweetheart. I’ll tell you what. (Both stop hugging and walking) If we be good and you do not give me a hard time while at the fair, we can go on the iPad on the way back home.

Anna-Kat: OK mama.

Katie: If you behave. OK? Because, take this as a warning. If you talk to me in a rude manner, then the iPad is not being used. Got it?

Anna-Kat: Got it.

Katie: Good.

Taylor: how do I get this?

Elizabeth: I don’t know? Maybe some coins.

Taylor: probably that. Let me get Mom.

Elizabeth: no no don’t get your Mom. Let me get the coins. (Gets the coins)

Greg: Molly this is important. Why don’t you wanna go on the Ferris wheel?

Molly: (rudely) because I said so. OK? I don’t care about that you are daddying me like my father, but this is so raw for you and everyone else but you’re whole children. (Smiles rudely at Greg and walks away angrily)

Greg: (offended) wow. I haven’t seen her storm away from me like that.

Katie: (to Sam) What are you buying?

Sam: some stuff for Anna-Kat because she had a meltdown for things.

Katie: You are so thoughtful.

Sam: So are you.

Katie: Thanks Sam.

Sam: You’re welcome.

(couple hours ago when everyone goes back in the car)

Katie: Since you’ve been very good and did not give me any attitude, you can go on the iPad on the way back.

Anna-Kat: (gasps happily) Yay. Thanks mama.

Katie: You’re welcome sweetheart. (Her and Anna-Kat hug and Katie rubs Anna-Kat’s back during the hug)
