      • Ben: Susan, you can't go snooping through his drawers. You might find something we'd have to deal with.
        Susan: Well, we have to deal with this.
        Ben: Oh, God.
        Susan: It's from his school, it's adressed to Mr and Mrs Harper and he's hidden it from us. What does that tell you?
        Ben: That he doesn't want us to find it.
        Susan: It's inviting us to a fundraiser for the drama course Michael's joined; An Auction of Promises.
        Ben: And that's what we have to deal with?
        Susan: Isn't that enough? He's hidden it from us!
        Ben: Susan, finding crack cocaine in his desk, we'd have to deal with. Finding a ransom note, we'd have to deal with. Finding a naked picture of Ewan McGregor - you'd have to deal with.

      • Ben: (of Susan's winning bid) A personalised family headstone? I don't want to get buried with you lot, living with you is bad enough!

      • Susan: (of the auction notice) Michael, why have you hidden this from us?
        Michael: I don't want to talk about it.
        Susan: Well you have to, I took a course in sensitivity training.
        Michael: You dropped out!
        Susan: Because I already knew everything.

      • Product: "Shinkwrap" The title is a pun of a material that, when heat is applied, shrinks to form a seal over whatever it's covering.
