Ray: My mother is coming for a visit, which means we need to do some spring cleaning this weekend.

Debra: Iíll get the duster, if youíll get the broom.

Ray: Iím serious. You know how nit- picky my mother is and I want our house to be neat and tidy.

Debra: Fine, fine, I understand. You donít want her to know we live in a pigsty.

Ray: Iím not saying we live in a pigsty, but the house is a little messy and dusty. It wouldnít hurt to straighten up a little bit, thatís all.

Debra: Iím willing to pitch in, but Iím not going to spend the entire weekend slaving away to get this house spotless. Your mother wonít love you any less if youíre not a neat freak.

Ray: You donít know my mother very well.

Debra: I know her well enough. I donít want to spoil her fun. If she canít complain about our dirty house, what will she complain about?
