The Child (enters with a sheet of paper in hand): "John! John! I've got an idea about how we can end terrorist attacks."
John: (Stepping over to the dining nook table.): "OK...." (thinking in the back of his head this is the kid who likes the Sith because 'they get things done.')
The Child: "I heard there were these bombings in this city in Spain. So, I made this map showing where the bombings were." Places map on the table.
John: "So what's your plan?"
The Child: "We'll [redacted]"
John: "!! What?! Bud! No! That's like Rambo destroying the Emerald City in order to save it. You don't do [that]."
The Child: "If that's where the terrorists live, we'll get them."
John: (calming himself by bringing his hands together like Steve Jobs presenting a gizmo and taking a deep breath): "Going out with force like that is a George W move. It only destabilizes the region. We've had this discussion before."
The Child: "How do we stop terrorists, then?" (thinking 'The Sith would know how to deal with terrorists').
John: "To deal with terrorism, you have to deal with the roots of terrorism."
The Child: "You get all the old people?"
John: "No! You're being obtuse! I've told you this before; you take away the reasons people become radicalized; you send aid; you educate people, especially the girls and women; you have a kind of Marshall plan for the area."
Mark (coming home from work): "Hi, everyone."
The Child: "Mark! Mark! I've made a plan for dealing with terrorism. See!" (shows plan).
Mark (brightly): "Oh, that's good, you made a plan."
John: "Just. Make. Dinner. Just. Make. Dinner."
