"What do you say, Scout? Maybe just one of these."
"Leave those carob-tofu clusters alone! They're for after dinner!"
"After dinner?! Why, in my day, we were lucky if we had dinner!"
"Does it tell you which way the wind's blowing?"
"I'm workin' on it! I'm workin' on it!"
"I never blowed a bubble that big before!"
"I think my dad growed down."
"You're right, Chuckie. He needs a diaper!"
"But where are we ever gonna find a diaper that big?"
"Okay, Stuie, hold still!"
The babies tie the sheet like a diaper over Stu's pants
"Tommy, I'm getting wet! Why are we doing this?"
"Cause' it's fun, Chuckie!"
"Wanna play with my doll, Stuie?"
"Don't worry, when Daddy gets home, he'll fix..."
"He's never coming home."
"My daddy. He's never gonna come home!"
"He turned into Stuie and now he'll never be Daddy again!"
"But now you gots Stuie to play with!"
"Yeah, now you got a great big baby to help you get Christmas presents and... and eat cookies and get in trouble!"
"It's just not the same as having my daddy!"
"When you were my daddy, you'd build toys for specially for me and read me stories,"
"and tuck me in at night and... I miss my Daddy!"
"You gotta go back to being a big person."
"You gotta be Tommy's Daddy!"
"Can you blame him? Who'd wanna be grown up if you could stay little forever?"
"You miss your daddy, huh, Tommy?"
"Chuckie said I should be your Daddy."
"Ready to be a growed-up?"
"Here, Stuie. You use it to talk to yourself!"
"You carry your growed-up toys in it!"
"Here, Stuie. Take it in the bathroom, and don't come out till' practically forever!"
"What about if we made him eat lots of spinach?"
"What about having him watch boring growed-up shows on TV?"
"Boy, it sure it great to have things back to normal!"
"Stu! What are you doing wearing that sheet?!"
