Eavesdropping With Matt (Episode Five)

Dedicated to the Mom at Hollywood video, harassed and helpless and obviously living only part-time with her young daughter, who was helping her choose some videos for their night of mother-daughter bonding.

Daughter: Mom, could we get this movie? I already saw it.

Mom: I can't believe your Father let you watch that.

Daughter: I didn't see it with Dad.

Mom: Oh yeah? Then when did you see it?

Daughter: I saw it with you, remember? When your friend came over? That guy?

Mom (hurrying down the aisle): Oh, yeah.

Daughter: Remember, Mom?

Mom: I remember, I remember.
