beach house conversation

Aidan: "I see a boat."

Eric: "Yeah, I think that's a fishing boat. Or a whale-watching boat."

Aidan: "A whale-watching boat? Those kill whales!"

Eric: "Oh, I don't think so. They just watch them. It's whaling boats that kill them."

Aidan: "No, whale-watching boats kill whales!"

Evan: "No they don't, they just watch them. And you can't kill a whale by watching it. Unless you have laser vision."

o brother, where art thou?

Lately, when Sage gets hurt or really upset, she yells not for Mommy or Daddy but for Evan, and Evan runs to comfort her. It's about the sweetest thing I've ever seen.

fair enough

Sonja: "We'd better pick up a frozen pizza for supper — I don't feel like cooking."

Sage: "But I don't want a frozen pizza!"

Sonja: "Well, okay, what do you want?"

Sage: "I want a hot pizza!"

Eric: "We need to get a birthday gift for Elias. What does he like?"

Evan: "He likes science."

Eric: "Okay, good."

Evan: "And taking over the world and getting revenge against girls."
