    Hey, Lynnster. What’s it like livin’ in Manhattan, shoppin’ in overpriced “boo-teeks” where they won’t let you in unless you look “right”? Must be nice.

     

    LYNN

    It is, Carl. What’s it like being unemployed and having a bad haircut? Tell me what that’s like.

    All I’m trying to do is help you.

     

    JOANNE

    I know, Mom. But I’m not a cashier.

     

    LILLIAN

    Then, what are you? An “artist”?

     

    JOANNE

    Yes. That’s exactly what I am. An artist.

    Babette, you are avoidin’ the inevitable. You have to live with Kiki.

     

    BABETTE

    Can’t I just live with you two in Grandpa Joe’s trailer?

     

    MA DEVOL

    Honey, you’d have to sleep in the bathtub, wouldn’t she, Pa?

     

    PA DEVOL

    It’s a standing shower, Ma. And that’s where we’ll be sleepin’.

    Emma stops for a nano-second, threatens him with a mock right to his face.

     

    CHUNKY

    Okay. Okay. But if the restaurant biz goes south, you’ve got a career waitin’ for you here.

     

    EMMA

    Thanks. Now get lost. Before your teeth do.

    But Tillie, you know what your father would have done if he had found you with it.

     

    TILLIE

    I don’t care! Books take me places. Yorkshire. Pompeii. Places I never even knew existed. Places I can only dream of seein’!
