Virgil:

Melanie gets to have her own room, and Mallory gets to put up with Cassini’s snoring all by herself.

Cassini: Wow… This house is huge!

Belinda: It is a bit… bigger than what we need.

Nervous: It is, but it’s what my company reserved for us.

Virgil: So do we take these in now, or—

Mallory: Here’s the check list to make sure everything makes it in. *hands notebook*

Belinda: Don’t worry about the last few boxes. Your father and I will take care of them.

Nervous: You all have school in the morning, and should’ve been in bed hours ago.

The kids: *mass groaning*

Virgil: Meh… Tomorrow’s Friday. We can skip it and not miss anything—

Belinda: You’re going to school. Now go to bed.

The kids: groaning intensifies -

Chance: I’ll call you every single day—

Mallory: Aww. *hugs*

Virgil: Mallory?

Chance: —and txt you every night and first thing every morning.

Mallory: You better. *squeezes*

Virgil: Mallory?!

Chance: I’ll miss you.

Mallory: I’ll miss you too.

Virgil: Mallory!!!

Mallory: O-kay! Geez! What do you wa— What’s wrong with mom?

Belinda:*siiiiigghh*

Virgil: I think she thought about us moving, and it just sort of… hit her.

Cassini: Awww! My kite won’t fly!

Belinda: Where did you get that?

Cassini: Out of that box.

Belinda: Could you please not unpack things that we’ve already put away?These need to be on the truck right now! Mallory, could you help me with this?

Mallory: But mom… Chance is here! I’ll help later!

Belinda: But we need to leave later! *sigh* Alright… 10 minutes. That’s it.

Mallory: Thanks, mom.

Belinda: Big day todaaaay~

Cassini: You’ve been saying that all morning…

Nervous: *checks schedule* I have a few meetings and last minute things to do at work this afternoon.

Belinda: No worries. We should have everything packed up and ready to head out by tonight! Isn’t this exciting?

The Kids:

Carson: Well I’m excited, Aunt Belinda.

Belinda: Thank you, Carson. But I’m not… I’m not your aunt.

Carson: Ah- Can I call you 'mom' then?

Belinda:Aunt Belinda is fine.

Virgil: But we can’t leave him behind, dad! What will he do? What will I do!?

Nervous: I know it’ll be hard to get used to a new place and make new friends, but you’re going to have to.

Virgil: But he’s my best friend! The only best friend I’ll ever have!

Nervous: You know that’s not true—

Carson: I’m gonna miss you, buddy. *sniff*sniff*

Virgil: I’m gonna miss you too. *sniffle*sniff*

Nervous: Stop it!

Carson: What if— What if my mom says I can go?

Nervous: She wouldn’t agree to that.

Virgil: But what if she does?

Nervous: I-I-I’d have to talk to your mother about it, but—

Virgil: Is that a yes?

Nervous: L-Look, I—

Virgil: So it’s a maybe..?

Nervous: Right now it’s nothing, so don’t get your hopes up… If Casey is… alright with it, then… We’ll see.

Virgil: Since Carson is part of our family, and, well, his mom kicked him out and his dad is… somewhere… What if… when we move…

Nervous: No, Virgil, you—

Virgil: Please, dad?! We could be roomies!

Carson: I-I wouldn’t take up much space, I swear!

Nervous: We can’t take you with us, Carson. Your mother wo—

Carson: Mom won’t mind! She has my brother and my step-dad to keep her company!

Virgil: Without us here, he’ll be practically alone!

Carson: —and I’ll get my own place as soon as I turn eighteen!

Nervous: *sigh* You two…

Virgil: Well, dad… *sits* We have a… proposition for you.

Nervous: …a what?

Cassini: Oh, I’ve gotta hear this… *eavesdrops*

Virgil: Carson and I are very close. Like, very close.

Nervous: …uh huh.

Virgil: I mean, he’s my cousin, but I’ve always kinda thought of him as the brother I always wanted.

Carson: -gasp- Dude?

Virgil: Dude.

Nervous: O- ‘kay..?

Belinda: Bedtime, Cassini.

Cassini: But mom—

Belinda: No buts.Bedtime. Now.

Virgil: Dude, say something.

Carson: Say what?

Virgil: Tell him what we talked about.

Carson: But— I don’t—

Virgil: Dude! Do you want me to talk to him?

Carson: Duh. He’s your dad.

Nervous: You might as well stop whispering. I can hear you just fine from there.

At a neighborhood sports bar, over poorly made drinks, Virgil tells Carson how he really feels about military school.

Virgil: Thanks for giving us a ride, Mallory.

Mallory: It’s no problem. Thanks for inviting me along.

Carson: I bet people bum rides off of you all the time, right?

Mallory: Actually, no, they don’t! No one ever asks me for rides!

Virgil: Really? Why not?

Mallory: I honestly don’t know! -plumblump- *drives over sidewalk*
