ALEPH: Eema, can you can you can you-

EEMA: I can't do anything right now. I am changing Bet's diaper.

ALEPH: Well if you can't do anything, how can you change Bet's diaper? That's doing something.

Seriously, how can these children not be toilet trained yet??? Aren't they in preschool law school by now?

Of course, in Aleph's version, it goes like this:

another bagel summit talks breakdown

ALEPH: I want two halfs of bagel. I'll save one of them for you, Bet.

BET: I don't want a half of bagel.

ALEPH: Then I'm gonna eat two of them.

BET: I want one! I want one!

ALEPH: Then I will save one for you.

[pause for smiling / munching]

ALEPH: Why do you keep switching, Bet?

BET: [still smiling] I don't know. Just because.

ALEPH: But you have to say yes or no.

BET: Nononononono! Aleph don't talk to me! That is not okay!
