(In Cheryl's apartment, Cheryl prepares Bob to meet her family members.)
Bob: That's your cousin Teddy. He's a waiter. He's single, and he likes rock music.
Cheryl: I's my brother Eddie. He's a doctor. He's got a wife and two kids, and he likes classical music. How about this one?
Bob: I don't know. A cousin?
Cheryl: No.
Bob: Your brother?
Cheryl: No!
Bob: An uncle?
Cheryl: It's my aunt Judy!
Bob: Sorry, Mrs. Morris (to Cheryle) She looks like your uncle.
Cheryl: Tell me something about her.
Bob: She's an architect.
Cheryl: Artist.
Bob: Married.
Cheryl: Divorced.
Bob: Two kids. Three kids. Four kids? Five kids?!
Cheryl: No kids. Only eight more. Here's an easy one.
Bob: I don't know
Cheryl: It's my father!
Bob: I know who your father is! Why are you showing me photos of your father?
Cheryl: My family is coming in one hour. Now pay attention.
Bob: Why do you have such a large family?
Cheryl: It's not that large.
Bob: Not that large? You have six brothers and sisters, fourteen aunts and uncles--who knows how many cousins, nieces, and nephews! I'd say that's a large family.
Cheryl: They're not all coming over.
Bob: No, just eighteen of them.
Cheryl: I'm sorry, honey. I just want them to like you. Calm down. It's OK. You're doing fine.
Bob: OK. I'm OK. Your cousin John?
