Charles Montgomery: [after discovering her receipt] ... $908 for a one-night bar tab?

Jessie Montgomery: I can explain.

Charles Montgomery: ...All right, go ahead.

Jessie Montgomery: Daddy, there were these homeless people - a dozen of them - I took them dancing, and...

Charles Montgomery: [shakes his head, clearly not believing a word] Why me...? I thought, if I gave you everything you wanted, it might make up for your mother's death... I succeeded only in spoiling you, like a month-old yeast.

Jessie Montgomery: Daddy - Is it true Aunt Mildred's a lesbian?

Charles Montgomery: [lets out a deep breath] You are *completely* lacking in character.

Jessie Montgomery: I know it. I'm sorry.

Charles Montgomery: No, you're not.

Jessie Montgomery: No, seriously, I am... Come on, Daddy-waddy-kins... let's kiss and make up, like we used to...

Charles Montgomery: That isn't going to do you any good, Jess. You've got to make something of yourself; you're not a kid anymore... I'm very disappointed in you.

Jessie Montgomery: Join the club, Pops.

Georgette Starkey: [Early morning; Jessie is preparing to mop the Starkeys' floor] Jessie...! I like to get this floor *really* shiny. So, in order to get it *completely* clean, it becomes necessary to get down on your hands and knees - and to scrub every little square inch by hand. No mop... Questions?

Jessie Montgomery: Yeah. When's lunch?

Georgette Starkey: For the help? There *is* no lunch, until and unless the work is done.

Jessie Montgomery: [DELETED LINE - hours later, almost noon. Jessie is nearly finished scrubbing the floor by hand; it looks terrific] ... Okay, last leg. Thank God she didn't ask me to use a toothbrush.

Georgette Starkey: [DELETED LINE... she charges in, carrying - what else? - a toothbrush] *Jessie!* I *apologize;* I forgot to tell you to use... Oh, are you finished already?

Jessie Montgomery: [DELETED LINE - scrubbing the last square foot] Just.

Georgette Starkey: [DELETED LINE - handing her the toothbrush] Well, that's okay; just start all over again. Bye now, I'm off...!

[Jessie glares incredulously at the toothbrush. Then she kicks over the bucket of soapy water she's been using and, flustered, proceeds to toothbrush the entire floor]
