Scene: Folksy House, Friday, 8:30 a.m.
Deb: So, what are we doing today?
Sven: Well, the carpets are still wet (note: Sven stayed up until 4 a.m. shampooing the carpet downstairs, hence the late wake-up time) so we need to get out of the house.
Deb: I've already given the kids a bath and they're dressed, but I need a shower.
Deb: Can you check Dexy's diaper? (Turns on shower in bathroom)
Deb: Well, you go change him while I shower.
Sven: (silence, pleading look)
Sven: It's so cold out there, and I'm so warm.
Deb: Sven, please-
Sven: All right, where's my pants?
Deb: Fine, I'll change him.
(Deb exits with Dexy. She and Dexy have an involved conversation about poop, digestion, and the meaning of the words "disgusting" and "awful.")
Deb: (enters bedroom): Princess, where is your daddy?
Princess: He took your shower.
Deb: What? (Races to bathroom. Sven is in shower, singing happily.)
Princess: Told ya.
Deb: This will not be forgotten.
