Dad: Hey.

Mom: So do you have any idea where they're taking us?

Dad: Not a clue.

Mom: Right. Where are we?

Dad: This is where we're eating?

Hallie: No. Actually, that's where we're eating.

Annie: It's ours for the night.

Dad: Wow ! So, how exactly are we paying for this?

Annie: Well, we pooled our allowances.

Dad: Yeah. Right, Annie.

Annie: Okay. Grandfather chipped in a bit.

Mom: Annie.

Annie: Okay. He chipped in a lot. Come on. You guys are gonna love it.

Dad: Pretty snazzy.

Hallie: Elizabeth and Nick, your dinner awaits you.

Mom: Girls.

Dad: The table is only set for two.

Annie: Oh, that's the other part of the surprise. We're not joining you.

Mom: You're not?

Chessy: No, but I am. Good evening. I'm Chessy, and I'll be your server this evening. No wisecracks, please.

Martin: And I'm Martin your sommelier. May I offer you both a taste of the bubbly in the hope that you get a bit snockered and not fire this lovely lady and myself for following the orders of these audacious 11-year-olds.

Chessy: Annie, mood music, please.

Annie: Just relax. Sail though time back to yesteryear.

Chessy: You do get all this, don't you?

Mom: Yes, I'm beginning to.

Dad: They're recreating the night we met-- the boat, the music--

Chessy: The help.

Mom: It's so sweet.

Dad: Martin, I think I'll take that drink.

Mom: Thank you, Martin.

Chessy: Oh! Yeah.

Dad: To tell you the truth, I haven't been on a boat since the Q.E. 2.

Mom: Neither have I.

Dad: Hmm ? Well, then, here's to, uh--

Mom: Our daughters.

Dad: Our daughters. Now I know how a goldfish feels. You know , sometime if we're ever really alone maybe we could talk about what happened between us. It all feels a bit hazy to me now. It ended so fast.

Mom: It started so fast.

Dad: Well, that part I remember perfectly.

Martin: It looks like things are heating up quite nicely. I'd say it's safe to serve the vichyssoise.

Chessy: You ladle, I'll serve. I'm sorry.
