Steve: Don't you change the subject on me. This is your child we're talking about!
Steve: Damn right, "oh." I can't believe you're acting this way. That night was magical to me. The stars, the view of the city below us. I think I knew even then. And you were taken from me before I could tell you.
SmarterChild: lol! Interesting...Anyway, yadda, yadda, yadda. What else do you want to chat about?
Steve: You insensitive prick!
SmarterChild: That is not...acceptable vocabulary.
Steve: Neither is the way you're treating me. I mean, it's not vocabulary, but it is also unacceptable!

ELLEgirlBuddy: sorry, what??
Steve: You and Smarterchild!
ELLEgirlBuddy: really? you and smarterchild?
