Kitty: [Growls and continues to firmly wash the dishes]
Kitty: Kyle, Kathy, Willy, Misty! It's just about time for you guys to go to bed.
Kyle: But Moooom! I'm 12 now! I should be able to stay up later!
Kitty: [Stares and frowns] Bed. NOW. [Points to their rooms]
Kyle: *Growls* [Stomps upstairs]
Kathy: Good night mom, Thank you very much for dinner tonight... [Walks upstairs, WIlly and Misty follow]
Mandy: Mom, Dad, Can me and Tiff talk to you about something?
Dudley: Uh, What do you think, Kitty?
Kitty: *Gulps* Uh, I guess so...
Tiffany: Sit down...
[The family all sit down at the Dinner Table]
Dudley: First, We need to ask you girls something. [Turns to Kitty]
Kitty: We've noticed lately that you have been barely touching your food at Supper. Is there a problem we should talk about? [Crosses her arms]
Mandy: Yeah, There is.... You see, Me and Tiffany are ready to...
Kitty: Ready to what?
Tiffany: We're ready to.... *mumbles*
Dudley: C'mon girls, Speak up, We can't hear you.
Mandy: We both think we're ready to move out of the house.
Kitty: [Tries to prevent herself from bursting into tears] You...You...are? *sniffles*
Dudley: YES! THIS IS THE BEST DAY EVER!!! YAHOO—
Kitty: [Gives Dudley an innocent yet firm stare]
Dudley: I mean...What a pity...
Tiffany: I hope this conversation won't make you guys mourn or anything, Mandy and I just think we're ready.
Mandy: Yeah, I mean, We are about 22 or so, We actually could have already moved out of the house about 2 years ago...
Tiffany: We tried to give you some time, But now that our boyfriends and us are pretty close now, And we're finishing College soon, I really think we're ready.
Kitty: ...Excuse us for a minute, Please... [Yanks Dudley into the Hallway] DUDLEY! The girls can't leave us!
Dudley: WHAT?! Kitty! They are 20 years old! They are too old to be living with us!
Kitty: My point IS, I don't want to let the girls move out! I'm telling you, Dudley, I FORCED myself not to cry front of them! And another thing, They have been dating the same boys for 3 years! 3 YEARS! It probably won't be long before we get a call from one of the girls saying, "Mom, Dad! I'm getting married!" or "Mom, Dad, I'm pregnant!"!
Dudley: KITTY! Slow down! That's not going to happen! Cause I have a plan!
Kitty: [Is now actually sobbing] *Sniffles loudly* What is it?!
Dudley: Remember that the girls said back at the table, They said that they hoped we would not mourn or anything, Right?
Kitty: [Wipes her nose] ..Yes?
Dudley: Well...If we DO mourn, They won't want to leave us!
Kitty: Ah! I see where you're going here!
Kitty: But what?
Dudley: If the plan dosn't work, We'll just have to deal with letting go.
Kitty: Letting go? [Begins to cry again]
Dudley: *nods* I'm afraid so...
Kitty: Oh, Dudley! [Runs into Dudley and squeezes him, And begins sobbing loudly, Dudley pats her gently]
Dudley: Shh, It's alright, It's alright. [Walks back into the Dining Room, Where Tiffany and Mandy are waiting] Girls, We'll talk more about this in the morning, Me and your mother are having second thoughts.
Mandy: Well, Okay... [Gets up from table] Goodnight...
Tiffany: [Follows Mandy to their room] Love ya, Dad... 'Night.
Dudley: Goodnight girls. [Walks back into Hallway, Where Kitty is waiting, Her hands covering her face] C'mon, I'll carry you to bed. [Picks up a crying Kitty, and sets her into bed gently, Whilst he crawls in as well, and turns off the Night Lamp next to him.]
