February 1st, 2016

Episode 347 of 463 episodes

Be careful what you say when you are in front of children! Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:24 Explanations: 3:18 Fast dialog: 14:02 Cameron: Oh, f-! Dorothy: Watch your language. I don’t want the kids to hear foul language. Cameron: Sorry, I stubbed my toe. What’s the big deal? Kids hear all kinds of cursing on TV and in movies. Dorothy: Not my kids, at least not yet. I don’t want them learning to swear before they learn to walk. I don’t want them to grow up to be rude and offensive people. Cameron: You can’t protect them from every damn thing people say. Dorothy: Okay, that’s it. If you’re going to live here, we’ll need a swear jar. Cameron: A what?! Dorothy: A swear jar. For every swear word you say, you’ll need to put a dollar into the jar. We’ll save the money for the kids’ education. Cameron: What the f-?! Dorothy: Hey, there will be no profanity of any kind in this house. I don’t want you to be a bad influence on my children. Go ahead. Put a dollar into that jar. Cameron: I’m not putting a dollar into that jar. Dorothy: My house, my rules. Cameron: Unbelievable! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
