Scene: John is sewing a stocking for Arthur while Arthur and Mark are having a sword fight with spatulas in the living room, while the Blue Footed Boobie and the Racoon watch.
Mark: "What's daddy working on?"
Arthur: "Stocking" (a word he learned fifteen minutes earlier). (pause) "Elmo!"
Mark: "He's in daddy's bag on the chair next to the stereo."
(pause while Arthur turns around, walks to the chair around the corner, locates Elmo and returns to the living room.)
Mark (laughing): "Wow."
John (counting on fingers): "That's more than ten words."
Mark: "We're really going to have to watch what we say."
John: "I suppose we could speak in Spanish when we have sex."
Mark (archly): "Olé!"
John: "Perhaps we could use sign. Oh. Wait."
