LITTLE MIMI: Can we color on the walls?
LITTLE HEATHER: Yeah!
DAPHNE: *jumps into the room* Take me ouuuut tonight! Meow...HA!! *crotch grab*
LITTLE MAUREEN: *stares at the crotch grab in wonder*
DAPHNE: *snaps out of it* Woah! I'm sorry...it's a reflex...
NINA: Nobody said you had to eat it. Go play with Anthony, or something.
ANTHONY: *shrug* ((does anybody know precisely why he's a veggie? I know he is one, but I'm not sure if it's an animal-cruelty thing or a health thing or if he's just not big on meat . . . ))
NINA: NO. Anyone coloring on the walls will be smacked and put in time out, AND YOU WILL STAY THERE.
WILSON: Well, that was . . . random.
COLLINS: *gives Nina a look*
LITTLE MAUREEN: *to Nina* YOU'RE A BIG FAT MEANIE!
DAPHNE: *walks away in a daze*
EVAN: Yep. Random.
NINA: Sweetheart, I'm only a meanie to you. I'm sure Evan thinks I'm very nice.
ANTHONY: . . .
NINA: And Collins, you can stop looking at me like that. I'm not big on tofu, okay? Actually, I think tofu tastes like leftovers from Resurrection City.
WILSON: From where?
NINA: Resurrection City. It's my mom's refrigerator. She puts food in dead, and two months later she takes it out covered in new life.
LITTLE MAUREEN: So why are you a big fat,poo-poo head meanie to me and not to him? *points*
EVAN: Uh... *can't help but smirk*
COLLINS: It's better than slaughtering poor innocent animals! You know that ham they're putting in the oven? That's BABE the pig!
ALL OF HEATHER-MUN'S KIDDIES: *scream in horror*
ANGEL: HONEY! *smacks him lightly* That wasn't very nice! You're scaring them!
NINA: Because Evan knows how to behave, and you obviously don't. Do I have to belt you into your chair, or are you going to stop squirming? ((I've actually had to do this. It made me feel so mean . . . ))
LI'L WILSON/MARK/ANTHONY/KT: *cry*
WILSON: Collins! Come on. Babe was a - Anthony, help me out here. Wasn't Babe the one with the spider?
ANTHONY: *patiently* Babe was the sheep-pig.
WILSON: Right. Babe was the sheep-pig. You don't kill a sheep-pig!
NINA: *pulls Li'l Wilson and Li'l Mark into her lap, and cuddles the other two* The animals people eat are raised special for people, kiddos. I promise you're not eating Babe.
LITTLE MAUREEN: I'm not squirming! I'm asking you questions,poopy head!
COLLINS: *to Wilson with a self satisfied grin* Yes?
ANGEL: Tsk,tsk. *kneels down and comforts as many kids as she can*
LITTLE MIMI: *jumps up* SAVE BABE!!! *grabs the ham and tries to run off with it*
EVAN-CLONE: *takes the ham* Come on, you guys. *gets down on his knees on the floor so he's not towering over the kids, and hooks a couple of them so they're not running off* Look, the animals we get meat from are raised special so we can eat meat. It's not like we're going out and, I don't know, killing rabbits right out of people's back yards. I saw a pork pig once. They're actually really ugly, and they're kind of mean. I promise the ham isn't Babe.
WILSON: *goggles* I think that's the most I've ever heard him say at one time.
ANTHONY: *smacks Collins* Come on. I don't eat meat either, but that's no reason to traumatize these poor kids, okay?
HEATHER: *gapes at Evan clone*
BOHO GIRL: *whispers to Heather* Is he...turning normal?
COLLINS: Ouch! Son of a-
RODNEY: *reaches way, way up and claps a hand over Collins' mouth* Not in front of the kids.
LI'L WILSON: So . . . eating pig is a GOOD thing?
EVAN: It's up to you, but sure.
LITTLE MIMI: YAY!
RODNEY: *is not dissuaded*
EVAN: *grins shyly*
NINA: *wipes forehead*
NINA-MUN: *really needs to go to a reception in a few minutes*
COLLINS: *licks Rodney's hand*
RODNEY: *was playing with the li'ls before all the drama occurred, so his hands are rather dirty*
