Scene: Aleph is trying to tell me something, but I can't understand him no matter how I try. The train needs to go fash? ...flash? ...fashed? ...frashed??? Aleph is in tears by the time I finally get it. FAST. Duh. Of course. I hug him, and talk about how frustrated he must be. Then Aleph pulls himself together.
ALEPH: Now you say something and I won't understand you.
[Note: We've never done this before.]
EEMA: Hey, that's a good idea. Okay. Um... oogalie boogalie.
ALEPH: [smiling] Snoogalie boogalie?
EEMA: [cracking up, but trying to wail] Nooooooooooo! Oogalie boogalie!
ALEPH: Floogalie boogalie?
