You won’t always agree with the people you love. Learn how to talk about disagreeing with people in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:41 Explanations: 3:33 Fast dialog: 14:53 Lucinda: Maggie and Gerry are moving in together. They want to start a family. Thomas: I don’t approve of that. They’re not married and it’s a disgrace. Shame on them! Lucinda: I understand your objections, but they love each other and need our support, not our condemnation. Thomas: If I were their parents, I’d give them an earful. Someone should take them to task for making such irresponsible decisions. Lucinda: They know what they’re doing and it’s not our place to criticize their decision. Thomas: But I don’t have to like it. I’m not sending them a housewarming gift, that’s for sure. Lucinda: Too late. I sent one and signed both our names. Thomas: You did what?! How will they know I disapprove of what they’re doing when you go behind my back and do that? Lucinda: I think your reproach will come through loud and clear. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
