Wishing & Waiting


Blake: I can't wait for it to snow!
Wyatt: Snow is so much fun; making snowmen, building snow forts, snowball fights!
Oliver: It seems like the snow will never come!


Blake: I can't wait for all that snow to melt!
Wyatt: We're missing so much fun; playing soccer, climbing trees, digging in the dirt!
Oliver: It seems like spring will never come!

Christoph: Is it simply the nature of humans to always long for what they lack?
Kevin: Quite possibly.  Right now, I'm longing for a piece of cake.

Katie: Well, it does seem like it's been an awfully long winter.
Sasha: And spring still seems so far off.

Kaveh: But we do have the promise of spring; the anticipation!
It's all ahead of us - so many wonderful times.

Katie: That is a nice thought.

Frank: Yeah, it's kind of like the feeling of tearing the 
wrapper off a candy bar before you even take the first bite.

Sasha: Wow.  Who knew Frank could be so philosophical?
Katie: When his mouth isn't full.

No Time to Lose

Alice: Oh dear me, I sure hope we can find it!

Alice: It's not in here.
Luke: Not in here either, but there is a very tempting 
slice of pineapple upside down cake.

Luke: Not in the trash.
Alice: I should hope not.  That would be terribly wasteful!

Luke: See anything?
Alice: >cough< >splutter< Just some dust bunnies.
Luke: Don't let Ulli know that.  She would freak!

Luke: It's not under here either.
Frank: While you're down there, you don't see a ham sandwich by chance, do you?

Alice: It's not in these drawers.
James: Did the remote go missing again?
Kurt: Don't look at me; I can't even work it.

Luke: Not in here.
Meghan: What on earth are you looking for, anyway?
Ann Marie: Hmmm...I think I know.

Alice: We lost an hour last night, and we're trying to find it!

Meghan: >Sigh<
Holly Belle: >Eye roll< You two have lost more than that.

Ouija Wanna Have Fun

 Some of the kids have decided to delve into the mysteries of the occult...

Scot-Michael: Eenie Meenie, Chili Beanie; the spirits are about to speak!
Rhoda: Is anyone there?  Can you tell us your name?

Scot-Michael: It's moving!  It's spelling something out!
Philip Guy: What is it spelling?
Scot-Michael: M-Y-N-A-M-E-I-S-A-U-G-U-S-T-U-S-G-L-O-O-P

Philip: Whoa.  Uh, nice to meet you, Augustus?
Rhoda: Did you have a good life, Augustus?
Scot-Michael: I-T-W-A-S-FU-L-L-O-F-C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E

Rhoda: I wonder if he has unfinished business with the living?
Philip: What could it be?

Scot-Michael: I-P-L-E-A-D-M-Y-D-E-S-C-E-N-D-A-N-T-S-

Frank: Wha-Huh?
Pete Dakota: What is it, Frank?  What's wrong?

Noah Conrad vs. The Laundry


Nicholas SaharaOh, my sainted aunt! That boy is impossible!

Scot-Michael: Which one, and why?

Nicholas: Noah Conrad!  I simply asked him for his dungarees--
Scot-Michael: 'Overalls.'
Nicholas: --for the laundry and he threw such a wobble.
Scot Michael: What'd he say?

Nicholas: Oh, a lot of twaddle about 'preserving the denim color' and 'sturdiness of the fabric.' 
He didn't want them to lose their form and fit.

Noah Conrad: A true workman never washes his uniform in order to underline 
the seriousness of, and devotion to, his craft.  Every stain and splatter badges of honor.

Scot-Michael: Well, he does take his woodworking seriously.
Nicholas: Load of old tosh, if you ask me.
Scot-Michael: How'd you finally get him to give them up?
Nicholas: I said if he wanted to earn the badge for Household Pong, fine but 
not to come running to me to draw him a bath.
Scot-Michael: Nice.
Nicholas: I promised to bring them back straight away once they were out of the dryer
and laid out a pair of dear Benjamin's overalls that he could wear in the interim.

Noah: Argh. I look like a banker.
