    (Sean and Saori are helping Anne put together a new bookshelf when Anne's phone rings)

    Anne: (Picks up her phone) Hello? Oh, hi Mom. (Puts her mother on speaker phone)

    Anne's mother: Have you heard about your cousin, Alex?

    Anne: What did he do now?

    Anne's mother: His girlfriend's pregnant. And your aunt Becca flipped out. Now Alex has gone AWOL.

    Anne: I don't blame him.

    Anne's mother: Well, I don't blame Becca, either. Alex has never been an easy kid.

    Anne: He's a good guy. He's just not into school or your regular 9-to-5 work life.

    Anne's mother: He has to get a job now with a baby on the way.

    Sean & Saori: (The bookshelf crashes to the floor) Oh no!

    Anne's mother: What was that?

    Anne: Some friends are here helping me put together a bookshelf.

    Anne's mother: Did you have me on speaker phone this whole time, airing our dirty laundry?

    Anne: Yes, I had you on speaker phone. They don't care about our family's "dirty laundry," Mom. Don't worry.

    Anne's mother: I'm so embarrassed.
