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
