      • Dee: You think I'd wear the necklace from a baby vulture?
        Little Earl: Baby?
        Dee: Do you think I'm going to brag to people that I got a necklace from a 9 year old who needs a gang to make him feel important? I'd rather wear a necklace from a 5 year old who's happy and proud of himself just to be with me.
        Little Earl: Dee.
        Dee: Or a necklace from a 3 year old who's happy with himself for being a grown up 3 year old.
        Little Earl: Dee.
