Drew Latham: Hey, Dad.

Christine Valco: He's talking to you, genius.

Tom Valco: Yeah, Drew?

Tom Valco: [laughs] In public?

Drew Latham: Yeah.

Tom Valco: Yeah, that would be no. And in private, that would be no, too.

Drew Latham: Please wear the hat.

Drew Latham: Tom, you gotta wear the hat.

Tom Valco: I'm not wearing the hat.
