Kerry: He thinks of me as some sort of virgin spinster, like Miss Havisham.(Bridget has a confused look on her face) Great Expectations…? C: Referring to rapper Fiddy Cent as "Fifty Cents"?

So you see, the previous generation isn't always so wise. Your grandmother always cooked the pot roast in a little pan, so one day your mother asked her why. Yesterday, she was like, "I love your vintage jacket. Paul: I just got off the phone with Carter Tibbits, NASCAR legend. (Kyle and Rory ignore him and continue playing video games) Riveted. Cate: (reading Paul's last article) Okay readers, today we're having a little pop quiz, it's multiple choice, so sharpen your number 2 pencils and put your thinking caps on. Here's a quote: "Dad, you're an idiot." Now, contestants, this was said to me because of which of the following transgressions? Now do you know how many times I called my father an idiot? Because I know that whenever they insult me whether it's a "You're an idiot," "You're a geek," or an "I hate you," an "I love you" isn't far behind.
