Clayton: Hey, Pop. What are you doing? Adam: I'm on a genealogy site, looking at our family tree. Katy: Cool! Do we have any famous relatives? Adam: Well, your great, great Uncle Josiah Lightfoot Newman fought in World War II. Legend says he once lit Winston Churchill's cigar. Clayton: That's it? Lighting a cigar? That's not a lot to brag about. Adam: There's also your distant cousin. Ambrose Chapel Newman. He almost medaled in Olympic archery. And not to mention the long line of Newman mail carriers in the northeast. Clayton: So us Newmans are good at aiming, on-time deliver and lighting things? Adam: I guess we are. Clayton: So, how can you, in good faith, deny my birthright by refusing to buy me bottle rockets?
