The transcript for The Next Generation.
It was a nice day in Royal Woods.
Lisa was enjoying a cup of coffee with her husband Hugh.
Lisa: Can you believe we almost didn't get married? My sisters almost objected the wedding!
Hugh: I know. But we're together now, right?
Lisa: Exactly. Can you please tell Hugh Jr that he needs to get down here so he can get school supplies for school coming up next month?
Hugh: Of course I will, honey.
Hugh hollered up for his bespectacled 8 year old son.
Hugh Jr came down with a science experiment.
Hugh Jr: Yes! I'm coming! Can't you see I need to separate uranium and lithium before a chemical reaction occurs?
Lisa: Like mother like son!
Hugh: I know, huh?
Their youngest 5 year old daughter, Alicia came downstairs.
Alicia: Mommy, I wanna sleep over at Ashley's house tonight! Can I?
Lisa: Please. You know Lola hates her house getting dirty. If you have a sleepover in HER house, it would defeat the whole purpose of her abnormally clean house.
Alicia grumbled and left.
Hugh: Lisa, I know that Lola bugs you, but you should let Alicia sleep over there.
Lisa: It's not my problem. It's Lola's. She expects her house to be clean 24/7, basically. Lola even kicked out Lana, HER OWN TWIN last Christmas because she went sledding before she came over.
Hugh Jr: Mom, did you say that you needed me to get school supplies?
Lisa: Of course. Let's get going. Your dad will look after Alicia.
Hugh Jr: Doesn't she start school in a month, too?
Lisa: Right. She's going to have to come with us.
Alicia: Not fair. I want a new outfit, too. Think you could get me one?
Lisa: You have plenty of clothes.
Alicia: But I want to have a fresh start. I want my clothes to be more first grade.
Lisa: Fine. But just one outfit.
They arrived at the mall.
Lisa: Okay, Hugh Jr, here's 50 dollars. Get what you need in the school supply shopping department and I'll meet you there. Meanwhile, I must come with Alicia to pick a new outfit for her.
Hugh Jr: Okay.
Hugh Jr left.
Alicia: And about my outfit, I saw this adorable purple turtleneck and plaid skirt a few days ago when Aunt Leni took me to the mall to browse. Of course, she said that I'd have to ask you. So can we get it, Mom?
Lisa: I suppose so. Also, after we get your school supplies, I need to get some sodium silicate for a new experiment.
Lisa: Just know that I have another errand to run.
They finally got the clothes for Alicia.
Hugh Jr was waiting by the checkout of the school supply store.
Lisa: Got everything you need?
Hugh Jr: I did. Now what?
Lisa: Well, now Alicia needs to get her things.
A while later, Alicia got everything she needed.
Lisa: Now where is that scientific chemical store?
Hugh Jr: What do you know? It's right near this store.
Lisa went in and got exactly what she needed while Hugh Jr and Alicia were waiting on the bench outside.
They arrived home and Hugh had some news.
Hugh: I got an e-mail from Hugh Jr's school and they said he graduated elementary school!
Lisa: Wow! Already? He's only 8.
Hugh: I guess Hugh Jr's teacher liked his essay on nuclear physics for science class.
Lisa: That's my boy!
Hugh Jr: So you're saying I'll actually start middle school instead of 4th grade?
Hugh Jr: But what about my friends? I had lots of friends in third grade! Many kids even wanted my help with their homework!
Lisa: You'll make plenty of new friends at middle school. As a kid, I wasn't fond of having friends except with David and Darcy, who were my kindergarten classmates. They managed to be my friends throughout my life!
Hugh Jr: Wait...Darcy?
Lisa: Of course, Darcy was never my BEST friend like she always thought. I always tricked her and pretended she was, when really...I don't like her.
Hugh Jr: And about my predicament?
Lisa: You'll find friends in middle school. Believe me. When I was in middle school, I was quite popular.
Hugh Jr: Really?
Lisa: Yeah. You'll do fine in middle school!
Hugh: Guys, dinner!
Lisa: Oh right. Your father was working all day on this. His favorite dish as a child.
Hugh: Yep. Enjoy some bangers and mash while it's still hot!
They all ate their meal.
Lisa: Hugh, that was delectable.
Hugh: Yep. Oddly enough, my sister Alicia couldn't stand this meal. She always said it tasted like feet, which I didn't get at all.
Lisa: But you enjoy it.
Hugh: I do.
Hugh Jr: Yeah. This was pretty good, Dad.
Hugh: Well, I'm glad SOMEBODY likes this meal!
