      • Ted: (sees Jamie dribbling the basketball in the kitchen) Hold it! What did I just say about playing with that in here?
        Jamie: Sorry, Dad. Bad habits are hard to break.
        Ted: (in a strong warning voice) Well, if you don't break that bad habit before you break something in the house, I just liable to break something over your rear end.
        Jamie: (looking nervous and saying nothing)
