Kate: Darling! It's a beautiful morning; let's have breakfast on the patio. You'd feel so much better if you got out of this room. Doug: Maybe you're right. Kate: Here's your robe. The more you move around the house, the easier it'll be for you. Doug: Tell that to the furniture.
Kate: Buddy, I wanna ask you a favor. Your father's coming down to have breakfast in the garden; I think he'd like it if you sat with him. Buddy: Uh-uh, I can't. Kate: Buddy! Buddy: Well, he's not coming down, anyway. Kate: He is! He was just getting up to get dressed when I came downstairs. Buddy: Well, he's not, now. He's sitting in his chair, just like yesterday and the day before. Kate: Did something happen? Buddy: Yeah. He decided to stay blind.
