1,069 - Disinheriting a Child

January 15th, 2015

Episode 189 of 489 episodes

When you friends and family die, will they leave any money to you? Find out how not to get your inheritance in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:22 Explanations: 3:11 Fast dialog: 17:58 Vince: That’s it! I’ve had it with Daniel defying me at every turn. I want him to follow in my footsteps and study law, but he wants to be an artist. He dates girls I don’t approve of. But this! This is beyond the bounds of what I’ll tolerate. Alana: I know you’re upset, but don’t do anything rash. I’m sure Daniel didn’t mean what he said. Vince: Oh, he meant it. That’s it! I’m disowning and disinheriting him. Alana: I’m sure you don’t mean that. You both spoke in anger. I’m sure a cooling-off period of a few days will change his mind. Vince: It’ll be too late. I’m cutting him out of my will tomorrow. I have other descendants who’ll appreciate inheriting my money and property. Alana: But Daniel is your rightful heir. He’s your only child. Vince: Then he should have known how his hateful words would hurt me. Alana: What did he say exactly? Vince: He said he has become a San Francisco Giants fan. A Giants fan! Alana: That’s it? Vince: That’s it?! He’s wounded me to the core! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
