Ellen: Can we get a cat, dad? Pleeez? Nate: No! We are not getting a cat! Nate: I started this conversation by asking for a dog! I am not going to end up with a cat! Nate: I hate cats! If we get a cat, I'm running away from home! Ellen: Dad! Dad! Dad! Dad! Dad: Honey, you're hurting me. Nate: Can't we just trade her for a collie?
