Sunday afternoon. Nothing much going on. Palinode slips on his new shoes. He likes to call them his 'fresh kicks'.
Schmutzie: What are you doing?
Palinode: Putting on my fresh kicks.
Schmutzie: Are you going somewhere?
Palinode: I have a hot date.
Schmutzie: No you don't.
Palinode: It's really possible.
Schmutzie: You don't get any hot dates.
Palinode: Remember yesterday when I went to the acupuncturist? Maybe I met somebody there and arranged for a hot date.
Palinode: Oh I see. You don't think I can get a hot date. Well I can and I have, and now I'm going out on it.
Schmutzie: Who's your date?
Palinode: (Points at the cat) He's right there.
Schmutzie: You can't go out on a date with Onion.
Palinode: I can do anything I want. This is America.
Schmutzie: No it isn't.
Palinode: Are you sure? We're speaking English.
Schmutzie: They speak English in England.
Palinode: I guess that's English.
Schmutzie: This is Canada.
Palinode: But I feel so free and brave.
