    • Charlie: You eat way too much sugar, that's the whole problem. Claudia: I do not! Charlie: Yes, you do! Why don't you have a nice piece of fruit when you get home from school?

Claudia: No, I mean...I'm sorry about before. You know, with the sleepover. You got so mad...I didn't think it would make you that mad. You almost hit me...
