It’s such a beautiful day! And the Spring Festival is coming up. I know I’m looking forward to it – how about you all?
Catherine Oh, definitely! It’s going to be quite a treat this year!
Oh? Why is that? You are usually very stressed at this point.
Nathan This year she delegated.
Nathan Yep! She delegated everything! And I've actually had a few moments peace this year.
Why is that?
Nathan I made her do it. I told her, Catherine, I order you to do this! You are not to life a finger, or I'll have you thrown in the stocks! That's what I'll do!
Catherine Oh, you did not! What nonsense! I just decided that it was time to let others take on some responsibility and try to enjoy the event for once.
Nathan Balderdash! You, madam, are a big liar!
Catherine Why, how dare you call me a liar, sir!
Nathan Because you are! I told you that I’d disappear until afterwards, and that’s the only reason…
Catherine I thought you said you'd throw me in the stocks. The ones we don't have, by the way.
Nathan Yes, well, I did! And I said... that other thing...
Catherine Oh, don’t flatter yourself! I can always find you when I want to.
Nathan You can find me, but you can’t make me come out.
Catherine You wanna bet?
Jahx Couldn’t you two for once just say that you discussed something civilly and came to an agreement instead of all this strutting and crowing?
Nathan Why would I want to do that? She might think I like her!
Catherine Ew! I wouldn't be worried about that, if I were you. Besides, I don’t remember that conversation.
Jahx I was there.
Nathan You are a rumor-monger, Jahx Rife! I could have you arrested for that, I hope you know.
Jahx Right, right, I know.
Nathan Hey, don’t roll your eyes at me!
