Charles: (about giving Laura a dictionary for her birthday) I bet I'll be using that dictionary a lot myself.
Caroline: I certainly never had anything like that when I was little.
Charles: Me neither. (pauses) Who am I kidding? She hated it.
Caroline: Charles, she didn't hate it!
Charles: Oh, of course she did. Me and my bright ideas--I should have let you be the one to pick out her presents.
Caroline: It's exactly what I would have picked out. Don't feel bad. She's got to learn to be happy getting what she needs. Besides, years from now, when things like fancy mirrors are broken and long forgotten, she'll still be using that dictionary and thinking what a beautiful gift it was.
