Meemaw: Your brother's gonna be fine, but he has to have his gallbladder removed.
Missy Cooper: How's he gonna pee?
Meemaw: Not that bladder, his gallbladder.
Georgie Cooper: What's the gallbladder do?
Meemaw: I guess not much, if they're takin' it out.
Missy Cooper: You think he'll bring it home so we can see it?
Meemaw: I'll ask.
Meemaw: Maybe having this mutt next door won't be so bad. Shelly could end up getting used to it.
George Cooper Sr.: That's true. Remember when he got all freaked out by the fruit at the bottom of yogurt? Now he eats it no problem.
Mary Cooper: He still makes me stir it.
Meemaw: Maybe you could start out with a small pet, and work your way up. Like a turtle.
Mary Cooper: He says they carry salmonella.
Meemaw: A gerbil?
Mary Cooper: Apparently, they caused the plague.
Georgie Cooper: What about a bird?
George Cooper Sr.: Oh, I know that one. They'll steal his hair to make a nest.
Missy Cooper: Do you think we're stupid?
Georgie Cooper: Sheldon's in college right now, and we can't figure out your homework. What do you think?
Missy Cooper: Sometimes I tell myself I only look stupid because he's so smart.
Georgie Cooper: Give me the book. Don't just sit there, make me a sandwich.
Missy Cooper: There's a list of sentences, and you're supposed to say if each one's a complete sentence or not.
Georgie Cooper: The first one is, "Most people in the country". That doesn't sound like a sentence.
Missy Cooper: But ask me who drives pickup trucks.
Georgie Cooper: Who drives pickup trucks?
Missy Cooper: Most people in the country.
Georgie Cooper: Well, now it does sound like one.
Missy Cooper: I told you, it's confusing.
Missy Cooper: Can you help me?
Georgie Cooper: With what?
Missy Cooper: I don't understand my homework.
Georgie Cooper: You're asking me? I don't understand my own homework.
Missy Cooper: I know, but you're all I got.
Georgie Cooper: What kind of homework is it?
Missy Cooper: Grammar.
Georgie Cooper: I ain't great with grammar.
Missy Cooper: Well, grammar's just talking, and we both talk good.
Georgie Cooper: I guess. Gimme.
George Cooper Sr.: The little Sparks girl?
Mary Cooper: You're kidding. She seems so sweet.
Georgie Cooper: He says she slaps him around, takes his lunch money. She even put a tadpole down his shirt.
Meemaw: Poor kid, he tucks in those shirts.
(They go spy on her through the fence)
Mary Cooper: She looks harmless.
Meemaw: She's cute. So she probably gets away with stuff. I'm like that.
Leonard Hofstadter: Sheldon, you need to apologize to your brother.
Sheldon Cooper: I'm sorry?
Leonard Hofstadter: Yes. Like that, but nicer, and that way.
Sheldon Cooper: I have nothing to apologize for.
George Cooper: I told you this was a bad idea. Sometimes you can't patch a tire. You just got to buy a new one. Actually, that's always the case. Never patch, buy new.
