Daniel: Are you deaf?  I WAS OUT. . . . . . . . .

Daniel: (angrily) Because I’m sick and tired of being teased all the time about my cheap sneakers and hand me down clothes.  I told everyone I was getting a pair of True Flight sneakers after getting ragged nonstop today for the piece of crap shoes I’m wearing.  For once in my life, I want a pair of great sneakers.

Jack: (quietly) I see. I’m sorry Daniel, I just don’t have $70.00.  There’s hardly any grocery money left.  Dad didn’t leave much money this time. . . . . . . ."
