King of the Hill (1993)
Mrs. Kurlander: Must you wear that filthy thing on your head?
Aaron: Ma, it's a hat. You wear it on your head.
Aaron: True or false? Walter Emmins had to go to the hospital because he played with his belly button so much, that it got infected; and they had to operate.
Mrs. Kurlander: Definitely false!
Aaron: It's true! He's gonna be out of school for three weeks.
Mr. Kurlander: [sighs] Listen to me, Aaron. You're going to be okay, huh? You're a smart boy. You're very smart. I tell you how smart you are. Once, when you were less than a year old, your mother was in the sanitarium with consumption; and you would cry every night. So, the first few times, I picked you up and you stopped crying. So, I realized you just wanted attention. So, the next time you cried, I got a glass of cold water, and I stood over the crib and I said, 'You see this? This is a glass of cold water. So, you better stop crying or you'll be sorry.' But you kept crying, so I poured the water in your face and you stopped crying; just like that! And from then on... when you cried, all I had to do was to show you the glass of water and you'd stop crying. Now, that's a smart baby for you, eh? You be a mensch.
