La Mama: 'Hello?'
La Hija: 'Hi Mama. Can I leave the boys with you tonight?'
'You're going out?'
'With a friend.'
"I don't know why you left your husband. Siempe te queria and he was such a good man.'
'Mom. I didn't leave him. He left me!'
'You let him leave you, and now you go out with these anybodies and nobodies.'
'MA, I do not go out with anybody. Can I bring over the boys?'
'Ni una ves te deje to go out with anybody, except your father.'
'There are lots of things you did and I simply refuse.'
'Que quieres deceir?'
'Nothing, I just want to know if I can bring the kids over tonight.'
'You're going to stay the night with him? Pues que va decir tu esposo?'

'So you're going to sleep over at this loser's place?'
'MOM, HE'S NOT A LOSER!'
