Judy: Ready as I’ll ever be.
Ronny: Try to work up a little enthusiasm about meeting my parents.
Judy: It’s not them I’m worried about. It’s me. What if I don’t pass muster?
Ronny: My parents are going to love you. They’re open-minded and nonjudgmental people. They won’t care about anything except that I like you and you make me happy.
Judy: Me and parents are like oil and water. I’ve never been good at making a good first impression.
Ronny: Then you’ll gradually win them over. Meeting my parents will be a cakewalk. They’re nice people. It’s not like you’ll be running the gauntlet meeting my nine brothers.
Judy: You didn’t tell them I’d be meeting your parents tonight, did you?
Ronny: I may have mentioned it to Mark. Why?
Judy: What if they decide to show up and ambush me?
Ronny: They won’t.
Judy: If you found out that one of your brothers were bringing a girlfriend home to meet your parents, wouldn’t you want to be there?
Ronny: You have a point there, but it’s too late to back out now. Put on your game face and let’s go, or we’ll be late.
Judy: Okay, but just don’t be surprised if I make a break for it.
