Overheard -- posted by Mom

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Spencer: "Richard, why are you afraid of the Phantom of the Opera; what do you think he'd do to you?"

Richard, deadly serious: "I think he's going to tortunate me and turn me to bones.... or make me into one of those clapping monkeys."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

John, lamenting after being stopped from playing a non-sequential run in Rummy: "But they're all in the same coat!"

Dad: "I think you mean 'suit', Son."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sarah Grace: "The Phantom looks the hottest when he's first taking Christine to his lair."

James: "I can't stand that scene; he's 'blue-steeling' it up the whole time.

Spencer: "James, you'd be 'blue-steeling' it up too if you were working with only half a face."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dad, after smokin' the Young Guns at Go Fish: "Boys, you've been hustled. You didn't know I played Go Fish on a Mississippi riverboat before I met your mother."

John, breathless with excitement: "You mean you were like James Garner in that movie we saw?" [Maverick]

George, upon tasting Sarah's homemade cream cheese: "So, what makes this cream cheese homemade?"

Richard, oh-so-matter-of-factly: "Because.... she made it.... at home."
