    • Caroline: Last Thanksgiving my aunt Hilda told my uncle Marvin to lay off the stuffing, so he made fun of her singing. So then my aunt Jeannie started drinking and pretty soon she was throwing rolls at the cats. Just when you thought the tension couldn't get any thicker, I brought out Grandma Duffy's rhabarber pie, aunt Jeannie choked up, Marvin asked Hilda to sing Goldfinger, everyone hugged. It was just like nothing ever happened.
      Richard: Promise me I'll never have to spend a holiday with those people!
