Jeremy Tupper: Dad, I just wanted to let you know - it's OK about the earring.
Martin Tupper: You changed your mind. See, I told'ja.
Jeremy Tupper: No, I still wanna get it, but, uh, Richard explained to me why you said No, so now I understand.
Martin Tupper: What did Richard say?
Jeremy Tupper: Well, just that for me getting the earring means I'm taking control of my own body, and that's probably threatening to you, and by doing something you would never do, it feels like I'm rejecting you.
Martin Tupper: [Martin thinks it over] Jeremy, if you really want to get the earring... get the earring.
Jeremy Tupper: [he hugs his Dad, elated] Awwwh, thanks, Dad. He said you'd say that!
Toby Pedalbee: [reading Martin's rejection letters] 'Dear Mr Tupper, Thank you for sending us your play. Unfortunately, we are not interested in producing it at this time.' 'Dear Mr Tupper, I'm sorry to inform you that we are unable to find a place for your play in our current season.' 'Dear Mr Tupper, We hate your play, we hate you, we hate your hair. Please do not send us anything, ever again.'
Toby Pedalbee: [seeing that Martin looks angry] I'm paraphrasing.
