S: Darling, where're you? We've already been sitting here for 20 minutes. Come on! Leave your «Babe» for a while. It's important!
L: Yeah, daddy, please. I'm very tired and I want to snooze (вздремнуть), but mom said that I wouldn't go to bed until we came to an agreement.
O: All right, all right. I'm here. «Babe», I'll be back soon.
S: Oh, your car won't disappear unlike us. If you want to stay at home with your dear bucket (груда металлолома), I can easily arrange it for you, and we with Susan will travel the world alone.
