Lourdes: Do you see those teenagers over there? They’re making trouble again.

Nick: Those kids are just messing around. When they get bored, they’ll pipe down and go home.

Lourdes: They’re really getting on my nerves, playing loud music and making all that noise. They’re a disgrace.

Nick: Get away from that window before they see you. If they see that they can’t get a rise out of us, they’ll move along. What are you doing? What are you planning to do with that broom?

Lourdes: I’m going to use it to wave them off.

Nick: I wouldn’t do that if I were you. Teenagers can be unpredictable. You don’t know if a small slight might set them off. Insult them and you’re asking for trouble.

Lourdes: I don’t care. I’m doing it anyway.

Nick: Great! Now you have their attention. They’re flipping us off!

Lourdes: Yeah, well, two can play that game. Take that!

Nick: Are you crazy?!

Lourdes: No, I’m just giving as good as I get. Look what they’re doing now!

Nick: They’re mooning us!

Lourdes: Well, two can play that game, too!

Nick: What?! Are you nuts?! You can’t moon them back.

Lourdes: Oh, no? Watch me!
