priorities


CAL
(Lofting new Christmas present, freshly received in the mail, over his head)
Presents! Presents! Christmas! Presents! (Joyous mayhem, etcetera)

MICHELLE
Wow, a new Christmas present! Want to put it under the tree?

CAL
Mom, I love Christmas!

MICHELLE
(Somewhat rhetorically)
Why do you love Christmas?

CAL
Presents!

MICHELLE
Yes, presents are fun, aren't they? But the most important thing about Christmas is being together with your family.

CAL
And presents.

MICHELLE
Yes, presents are exciting. But what's most important, presents or people?

CAL
Presents!

MICHELLE
Presents are more important than people?

CAL
Oh, I mean people. People.

MICHELLE
That's right. Presents are fun, but people are the most important thing.

(Pause)

CAL
I thought you said, "What's most important, presents or pickles."
