Ben: Looking sharp dad.
Jason: Well I have no choice. See your mother, a women in the high maintenance category, requires a top drawer evening.
Ben: F.Y.I. dad, its popcorn-shrimp night at the sizzler.
Jason: Well thanks but unfortunately three months ago we planned tonight for a special night of theater, dinner, dancing, and the works.
Ben: The works? Ah, you mean sex.
Jason: Ben I know your 15 but not everything you hear is a euphemism for sex.
Ben: Well I guess not. I mean you sure don't seem very excited about taking mom out.
Jason: Well it's just that I have a speech to prepare for Monday, I've got the clinic budgets due next week, and I'd cancel tonight but it would break your mother's heart. Oh, you look fabulous.
Maggie: Well I have been looking forward to this for months.
Jason: I'll pull the car around. I'm thrilled!
Maggie: Oh, me too! Ah…I'd do anything to get out of this.
Maggie: Oh, I've got a column due next week, and I'm in the middle of researching another. I need a night out like I need a paper cut.
Ben: Gee mom, you know, dad sure would be disappointed if you didn't go.
Maggie: Oh, I know, but…
Carol: Mom is it ok if I borrowed your perfume?
Maggie: Oh, of course honey! Anything you want, I'm just so glad to have you home.
