Phil: Who is that?

Claire: It's the Patels, Sanjay's parents.

Phil: Hey. 

Vish Patel: Hey, how are you?

Phil: How are you?

Claire: I heard Sanjay did so well on his test today. Wow.

Phil: "Croctopus".

Claire: Honey. Honey! I think we should go see this movie.

don't have any?

Claire: It's two hours of our life.

Phil: Fine.

Claire: For our kids.

Phil: Sometimes I hate the kids.

Claire: I can't believe I fell asleep and you left. Alex is rightwe're idiots.

that smart. She got the best of both of us.
