S: What movie is it?
Me: It's a boring mommy and daddy movie. Good Night!

S: When you're 29, then you can watch a boring movie, too, Ivy! (repeated with ages 19, then 12)

S: When you have eleven-teen birthdays, then you can watch a boring movie like mommy and daddy!
I: Oh! (Her response to almost everything Sophie says to her.)
