Almanzo: What's this?
Laura: It's a special treat.
Laura: Not just chicken. It's lemon chicken. Try it, you'll love it.
Almanzo: What's all this stuff sticking to it here?
Laura: That's called aspick.
Almanzo: Oh. (takes a bite) Cold.
Laura: Well, of course it is, silly. I had it on ice all day. It's supposed to be that way. It's a nice change with the hot summer weather. There's potato salad if you want some.
Almanzo: Oh. What's all this stuff? What are all these speckles on here?
Laura: (getting frustrated) It's called taragon. It's an herb.
Almanzo: That's what I'm tasting, then?
Laura: Manly, this is a very special dish. It took all day to prepare!
Almanzo: I'm sorry, honey, it just doesn't taste good to me. Maybe if I take the skin off, it'll help. (Laura throws down her napkin and storms upstairs) Honey, I said I'm sorry!
