        Maxine: Its looks straight to me, and besides Lauren is not going to remember a crooked waistband, she will remember her mother, staying up all night to make her the butterfly costume she wanted.
        Amy: Don't patronize me Mom, I have to fix that waistband.
        Maxine: If you touch that waistband, I will rip out every stitch in that costume myself.
