Kitty: Oh, Larry, that is wonderful. Thank you!
Larry: My pleasure.
Kitty: (Rocking the table) It's not level.
Larry: Oh, I can adjust that. (Puts a matchbook under the uneven table leg.) There you go. Solid as the white man's hold on the Senate.
Kitty: You're not going to leave that matchbook under there, are you?
Larry: You bet.
Edward: She means "Don't leave that matchbook under there".
Kitty: Edward, I can speak for myself. (To Larry) Don't you want to sand the legs so that they're level?
Larry: Nah, not really.
Edward: She means "Do it".
Kitty: (Dripping with sweetness) Thank you.
Larry: What does that mean?
Edward: I don't know, but it rarely means "Thank you".
