Is everything you inherit valuable? Find out in this episode about family heirlooms. Slow Dialog: 1:16 Explanation: 3:28 Fast Dialog: 16:19 Anne: Where are you going with that? Ivan: I’m taking this clock to an antique dealer. Rather than having it gather dust on the mantelpiece, I thought I’d get it appraised and maybe sell it. Anne: You can’t sell that! It belonged to our grandfather. It’s a family heirloom. Ivan: It’s not a family heirloom. It’s just a clock that Grandpa had in his house. He didn’t mean for it to be passed down from one generation to another. I don’t even know if it’s valuable or collectable. These clocks could be a dime a dozen. Anne: But it’s valuable to me. It has sentimental value. As a little girl, I remember visiting Grandpa and seeing that clock on his shelf. If I had inherited it, I know I wouldn’t be looking to sell it to make a quick buck. Ivan: I’m not looking to make a quick buck, but what if Grandpa left it to me because he knew I would be able to put the money that it would fetch to good use? Anne: Well, are you? Are you going to put the proceeds to good use? Ivan: Sure, of course I am. Anne: Are you going to tell me what you’re spending it on? Ivan: Not on your life! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
