Ivy: Mom, can I go trick-or-treating with Jenna tomorrow? Eve: But, that's family time! Manny: Yes, Ivy. Go ahead. Ivy: Thanks, Daddy! Eve: Why'd you do that? I wanted her to stay - Manny: Tied to your apron strings? She needs space to spread her wings and grow. Eve: Yeah. Sigh. Why, soon she'll be dating! Manny: Only if your definition of dating is playing board games with her daddy! Eve: Hey! What about spreading her wings? Manny: P-shaw. New-Age crap.
