(mom) And all you could

see were these little feet

running down the hall,

just bare bottomed,

and him chasing him.

It was so...

(woman) You were chasing my baby?

I was trying

to catch him.

I was trying to... And you know, you

would be surprised how quick he is.

they broke the vase.

I gave you

the money for...

Oh, come

A need for whom?

I guess we'll

find out.
