(We are watching a tape of last Wednesday’s new episode of “Lost.”)
#2 Son (seeing it for the first time): This isn’t such a great episode.
Mom (who already saw it): Just wait and see.
(The show ends and the previews for this week’s show begin.)
#2 Son: I hate this show! I hate it!
Mom (shocked): You hate it?
#2 Son (emphatically): I hate it!! It sucks!
#2 Son: It sucks! This show sucks!
Mom: Well, I’m sorry I went to the trouble of taping it.
#2 Son: I hate it so much!!!
#2 Son: It’s like a drug! And they won’t give me enough!!
Mom: But this wasn’t such a great episode.
#2 Son: Be quiet.
