Mrs. Schmauss: What happened?
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Well, the washing machine went bananas and uh...
Mrs. Schmauss: [suddenly we enter the next scene, in the laundry room just after the kitchen] Well, lets take a look and see what's going on.
[she opens the washing machine lid, and very instantly sees that it's overloaded]
Mrs. Schmauss: Oh no! No! Well no wonder.
[starts taking them out piece by piece]
Mrs. Schmauss: You're going to cram your shirts, and your rugs, and your hose, and your sneakers, and some little tin things. What are these little tin things? Oh jacks! That's cute. That's cute! And all of your jacks in here together, not to mention you used too much soap. That is your problem.
[shuts the lid]
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Well, that's what comes of letting Annabel help with the laundry. That sweet thing trying to be helpful.

[rolls her eyes]
Mrs. Schmauss: Ugh!

Mr. William Waring 'Bill' Andrews: What's going on in there?

Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Really?
Ben Andrews: And she's beautiful.
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): She's what?

Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): With in luck you won't need braces.
Ben Andrews: That's what I'm afraid of, now Annabel going to hate me more than she does now. Well why does she hate me so much?
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Because there's nothing more annoying in the whole entire world with a little blue eyed saint, with perfect teeth, who's always on time, never has a messy room.
Ben Andrews: Do you hate me too?
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Don't be a jackass I'm just trying to tell you why Annabel hates you.
Ben Andrews: But I can't help those things, I can't help what I look like and about being neat, I can't help that either. Listen if I thought she'd bite me I might be better being famous, I even try being messy.

Do you want to know what happened? That stinky old Mrs. Schmauss said I was too young to know any better and picked everything up. So no matter what I do Annabel keeps on hating me.
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Well, why don't you hate her back? That's a good idea.
Ben Andrews: I told you before I tried. But you can't hate someone and love them at the same time can you mom?
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): No I didn't used to think so.
Annabel Andrews: [Annabel thinks] Maybe you can.
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Now blow. Feel better now?

Ben Andrews: Uh huh.
Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Come on let's go home.

Annabel Andrews: Mom, I'm not talking about how I look, I'm talking about how I am. I'm a lot smarter than I realized I am, and a lot dumber too.

Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Male chauvinist pig!

Annabel (as Mrs. Andrews): Because he is one!
