Chrissy: What did Mike do?
Ben: Well, Chrissy, it's not just one thing. I mean, the way Mom and Dad see it, Mike's always been...
Chrissy: A constant disappointment! I hear things.
Maggie: I think he's too smart to try and duck us today.
Jason: Oh, "too smart." Yes, then why would he leave this unopened college registration form, which as direct sunlight reveals, was due today, right out where anybody could find it, Maggie, in the dresser, under the socks, tucked away in the back?
Casting director: Well, Mr. Seaver. Would you like to tell us a little about your most recent acting experience?
Mike: Uh, well, just yesterday, I convinced my parents that I'd given up acting.
Mike: There's a perfectly good explanation for why I didn't follow through with what I told you guys yesterday.
Jason: And that is?
Mike: I lied.
Jason: So you looked me right in the eyes and lied?!?
Mike: No, no. Not once, if you may recall, did I ever look you in the eyes.
