Meeting your girlfriend’s or boyfriend’s parents can be as fun as being eaten by wild animals. Join the good times by listening to this episode. Slow dialog: 1:26 Explanations: 3:44 Fast dialog: 16:03 Ronny: Ready? Judy: Ready as I’ll ever be. Ronny: Try to work up a little enthusiasm about meeting my parents. Judy: It’s not them I’m worried about. It’s me. What if I don’t pass muster? Ronny: My parents are going to love you. They’re open-minded and nonjudgmental people. They won’t care about anything except that I like you and you make me happy. Judy: Me and parents are like oil and water. I’ve never been good at making a good first impression. Ronny: Then you’ll gradually win them over. Meeting my parents will be a cakewalk. They’re nice people. It’s not like you’ll be running the gauntlet meeting my nine brothers. Judy: You didn’t tell them I’d be meeting your parents tonight, did you? Ronny: I may have mentioned it to Mark. Why? Judy: What if they decide to show up and ambush me? Ronny: They won’t. Judy: If you found out that one of your brothers were bringing a girlfriend home to meet your parents, wouldn’t you want to be there? Ronny: You have a point there, but it’s too late to back out now. Put on your game face and let’s go, or we’ll be late. Judy: Okay, but just don’t be surprised if I make a break for it. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
