How about Ethel., lipthi, th th th She wanted me to change my last name to hers.

I don't remember. Ethel's all you need to know. That's the name she goes by.
I never knew, Chelsea always calls her Mommy.
Bill: I never knew. Chelsea always calls her Mommy.
Norman: There's a reason for that.
But she calls you Norman.
Im her father but not her Daddy. Ethel is her Mommy, and I'm Norman.
Oh, Is it all right if I sit down?
Ever read it?
Oh yes, it's great. Id recommend it.
Has that son of your read this book.
I...don't think so.
Your son hasn't read swiss family robinson?
No. But I intend to have him read it. I'm afraid his mother has been the motivating force in his life the last few years, the poor kid, and now I'm making a move to eradicate some of the dishevelment. Yeah, things are coming together for me pretty nicely now. the practice is real strong, and I'm feeling very good about myself. Meeting Chelsea has been a major....thing. And she's really flowering. She likes her job a lot, and she's been doing some beautiful paintings. We have a very kinetic relationship. Very positive. I'm sure you'd be pleased.
What do you charge for a filling.
You're a dentist arn't you. What do you charge for a filling?
Uh. Start at about $95
.......That's when I stopped going to him.
You're brother was a dentist?
He was. When he was living
Isn't that amazing?
I don't know I think every family has one.
Norman, Um, I don't want to offend you but there's a rather important little topic that I feel I have to broach.
Bill: have to broach
Norman: I beg your pardon
I don't want to offend you, but....if it's all right with you, we'd like to sleep together.
Bill: Sleep together
Norman: What do you mean?
Bill: we'd like to the same the same bed. If you don't find that offensive.
All three of you?
What? Oh,No. Just two.
You and Billy?
Not chelsea and billy
No sir
That leaves only chelsea and you then.
Why would I find that offensive? You're not planning on doing something unusual, are you?
Oh, no. Just....(give up)
That doesn't seem too offensive, as long as your're quiet.
Chelsea always used to sleep in the same bed as her husband.
Oh, I'm sure.
And Ethel and I do, you know. We sleep together. Been doing it for years.
Well, of course. But you're married and all.
Bill: Well, of course. But you're married and all.
Norman: So?
I think I'm beginning to see this more clearly. It's a moral issue isn't it.
Well, it's just we're of different generations, different mores...
Whats a more? I've never known
Um....a custom I'd say. Or something.
Go On. Forgive me for interupting.
Well, it's just a matter of points of view...
I shouldn't have interrupted.
Oh. Of course It's just that I don't want our relationship to ....
It's a terrible social program I think.
Interrupting. Not listening. The art of conversation went out with radio probably.
Or maybe with mirrors
Ever notice...................staring oat themselves in their eyeglasses when they're supposed to be listening.
Yes, I have noticed that.
It's a shifty sort of quality , I think.
I do it.
You do?
Sure ..conversations bore .....divertessement while im waiting for my turn to talk.
Pretty shabby huh?
I dont do it with ethel. SHe's so pretty, isnt she?
....make sure I havnt faded
They say your looks just go, havn't seen a sign of it
No, indeed.
what were we talking about?
Sex I believe, you were concerned that that my morals wouldn't mesh with yours.
Dont be silly, I'd be delighted to have you abusing my daughter under my own roof.
Would you like the room where I first violated her mother? or would you be intrested in the master bedroom?
Ethel and your son and I could all sleep out back and you could do it right here on the hearth. Like that Idea?
You're having a good time arn't you.
You're having a good time arn't you.
Chelsea told me about you. About how you like to have a good time with peoples heads. She does it too, sometimes, and sometimes I can get into it, sometimes..not. I just want you to know that I am very good at recognizing this crap when I hear it. You know, It's not imperative that you I become friends, but it might be nice. I'm sure your a fascinating person, and I'm sure it would be fascinating to get to know you, but that's obviously not an easy task. But it's all right, you go ahead and be as "poopy" as you want to to quote Chelsea, and I'll be as receptive and pleasant as I can. I just want you to bear in mind while your sitting there smiling at me and Jerking me around that I know precisely what your up to and I can only take so much of it. OK? Good. Now, what's the bottom line on the illicit sex question.
outspoke but nice.
Thank you
And you're right about me, I am fascinating.
I'm sure you are,
I didn't mean to weigh down our conversation we can go back to talking about sex if you'd like.
Oh,no. That's ok
I like talking about sex. Anything you want to know, just ask me.
Okay I,....I do want to make sure I have this little matter clear in my mind. Chelsea and I CAN sleep together right?
Chelsea wants you to come down, Dad. She and ethel are going skinny dipping.
Skinny dipping? Um
Go ahead, permissivness runs rampant up here on golden pond.
Are there ever any bears around these parts?
Go on dad he's just bullshitting you.
Heh, God , I hope I live through the next few days.
