£ IT'S A DIFFERENT WORLD £

£ FROM WHERE YOU COME FROM £

Yo, everybody!

Dwayne Wayne here.

DWAYNE, WHAT ARE YOU
DOING IN HERE?

Surprised you,
didn't I?

This is W.H.Z.U.,
the voice of Hillman.

I'm Dwayne Wayne

sitting in for Marvin Haven,
the Music Maven

who's sidelined
with an infected throat.

Marvin, take care
of yourself, man.

Grab a cold shower,
and run outside naked.



MARVIN, DON'T DO IT, PLEASE.

Seriously man, I'm
grateful for the break.

And now, a very special song
for a girl I think

is in the key of gorgeous.

She lives in Gilbert Hall,
Room 20-Y.

Top bunk.

You know who you are.

I CAN'T BELIEVE HIM TELLING
THE WHOLE SCHOOL WHERE I SLEEP.

FORTUNATELY, HE DOESN'T KNOW

HOW YOU LOOK
IN THE MORNING.

I JUST HAD THE
MOST AMAZING DREAM.

I DREAMT I WAS LIVING
IN THIS BIG WHITE HOUSE

ON THIS CLIFF
OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN.

AND I'D JUST FINISHED
MY SECOND ARTICLE

FOR SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE.

I'D GIVEN THE TWINS
THEIR DINNER...

AND I WAS STANDING ON THE DECK
LOOKING AT THE OCEAN

AND I KNEW THAT ANY MOMENT

SOMEONE I LOVED
WOULD COME THROUGH THE DOOR.

OH, MIKE?

NO, IT WASN'T MIKE.

IT WAS DWAYNE.

AND HE SAID, "YO, EVERYBODY."

MAGGIE, DWAYNE WAS ON
THE RADIO THIS MORNING.

I WOULD RATHER LISTEN TO
THE EMERGENCY BROADCAST SIGNAL.

IS MIKE COMING
DOWN THIS WEEKEND?

I'M NOT SURE.

COME ON, MAGGIE,
TELL THE TRUTH.

THERE IS NO MIKE.

THIS PICTURE CAME
WITH THE FRAME, RIGHT?

HE SAID HE'S GOT A LOT
OF MID-TERMS AND PAPERS

THIS WEEKEND.

HE'LL BE A GREAT
LAWYER SOMEDAY.

HEY, IT'S FRIDAY!

I'M SO HAPPY.

I HAVE THE AFTERNOON OFF.

NO, YOU DON'T.

LAST FRIDAY IN THE MONTH.

DEBATE CLUB, REMEMBER?

WHY DID YOU MAKE ME SIGN UP?

YOU WANTED TO
ENHANCE YOUR RESUME

DEVELOP YOUR
SELF-EXPRESSION.

YOU NEEDED THE CREDITS.

THAT'S THE REASON.

IT'S WHITLEY'S TURN
TO MAKE A MOTION.

I CAN'T WAIT
TO HEAR WHAT IT IS.

WAKE UP WITH DWAYNE.

GO LISTEN TO WHITLEY.

CERTAINLY MY PERFECT DAY.

( humming )

WHITLEY.

WHITLEY.

WHITLEY.

WHITLEY, I'M RUNNING
OUT OF ROOM

FOR ALL YOUR CATALOGUES.

STEVIE, THE HOLIDAYS
ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER.

AND SOMEWHERE IN HERE
IS A CHEESE PLATE

WITH YOUR
NAME ON IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT.

OH.

OKAY.

NO AUTOGRAPHS.

NO AUTOGRAPHS.

IT'S DWAYNE WAYNE, LIVE.

STOP THAT.

SO THAT WAS YOU
I SWITCHED OFF THIS MORNING.

WHITLEY, YOU CAN
SWITCH ME OFF...

AND IT HURTS ME,
IT DOES...

BECAUSE ALL MY LISTENERS
ARE PRECIOUS.

BUT THAT'S COOL

BECAUSE ONE DAY SOON

DWAYNE WAYNE WILL
RULE THE AIRWAVES

AND I, IN TURN,
WILL TALK ABOUT YOU

LIKE A DOG.

DWAYNE, DID WE SIT

A LITTLE TOO CLOSE TO
THE WOOFERS THIS MORNING?

UH-HUH.

HEY, DWAYNE.

I HEARD YOUR RADIO SHOW
THIS MORNING.

YOU WERE PRETTY GOOD.

YOU REALLY LIKED IT?

YEAH.

LIKE A DOG.

NO LETTER,
NO PHONE CALL.

HE'S NOT COMING.

MAYBE SOMETHING CAME UP.

THE WINDS OF ABSENCE ARE BLOWING
ON THE FLAMES OF YOUR LOVE.

WILL THEY REKINDLE IT
OR SNUFF IT OUT?

HEY, SORRY I'M LATE.

THAT'S QUITE ALL RIGHT,
PROFESSOR LAWRENCE.

I'M SURE WE CAN FORGIVE
A ROAD WARRIOR SUCH AS YOURSELF

FOR TARDINESS.

OKAY, BEFORE WE GET
TO THIS WEEK'S MOTION

GIVE YOURSELVES A ROUND OF
APPLAUSE FOR THE LAST DEBATE.

YEA, ALLISON.

I THINK SOME OF YOU
WERE BORN TO ARGUE

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO TECHNIQUE,
YOU ARE SORRY.

MILLIE

WOULD YOU
COME HERE,
PLEASE?

MILLIE?

NOW, MILLIE,
YOU MAKE FINE POINTS.

YOU KNOW YOUR ARGUMENTS.

BUT NO ONE WILL HEAR THEM

IF YOU DELIVER THEM
LIKE THIS.

I WAS LOOKING
AT MY NOTES.

DID YOU WRITE THEM
ON YOUR SHOES?

IF I'VE TOLD HER ONCE,
I'VE TOLD HER 1,000 TIMES.

WHICH BRINGS ME
TO YOU, WHITLEY.

I ADMIRE
THE EMOTION--

THE PASSION
YOU BRING TO YOUR ARGUMENTS.

I THINK THAT'S GREAT.

BUT CLINGING TO THE PODIUM

AND PRETENDING
TO HAVE A BREAKDOWN--

IT'S OVERKILL.

CAN I HELP IT IF I'VE
BEEN MOVED BY MY WORDS?

AND
ALLISON...

HI.

HI.

LET ME ASK YOU
SOMETHING.

WHAT IS THIS?

NOW, YOUR BODY
CAN BE YOUR TOOL.

IT CAN HELP YOU TO
PUNCTUATE YOUR STATEMENTS.

BUT YOU ARE NOT
A SNAKE CHARMER.

IF YOU
CONTINUE

TO DO THIS...

YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.

YES, WHITLEY?

MUCH AS WE ARE RIVETED TO THESE
UNCOMFORTABLE FOLDING CHAIRS

BY YOUR HELPFUL HINTS

MAY I INTRODUCE
MY MOTION NOW?

OF COURSE.

RESOLVED:

THAT IF A WOMAN CHOOSE
BOTH FAMILY AND CAREER

ONE MUST SUFFER.

WHAT?

HAH!

WHITLEY WORKED
ALL WEEK ON THIS.

EXCUSE ME.

WOULD YOU CARE TO ARTICULATE?

IT'S STUPID.

THANK YOU.

IT'S RIDICULOUS,
AND IT'S UNFAIR.

A WOMAN CAN DO ANYTHING
A MAN CAN DO.

MAYBE IN
YOUR FAMILY.

THERE'S NO
DEBATING THIS.

NO, MAGGIE,
I DISAGREE.

IF YOU GUYS ARE ANY INDICATION,
THIS IS A HOT TOPIC.

YOU CAN ARGUE THE NEGATIVE.

I ACCEPT.

AND SO DOES DENISE
AS RESERVE SPEAKER.

WHAT?!

OKAY.

MAGGIE, I WELCOME THE CHALLENGE
FROM SUCH A WORTHY OPPONENT.

WE'RE GOING TO
KICK HER BUTT.

( jukebox music )

MAGGIE, YOU ARE GOING
TO KILL HER.

CHECK THIS OUT.

TEN MILLION WOMEN

BOUGHT WHITLEY'S DUMB IDEA
AND GAVE UP THEIR CAREERS.

WHEN THEIR MARRIAGES BROKE UP,
THEY HAD ZIP, ZILCH, NADA.

WHERE DID YOU GET THIS?

NEW YORK TIMES.

AND MY LIFE.

BUT YOU WORKED WHEN
YOU WERE MARRIED.

IT WAS EITHER THAT

OR STAY HOME
AND REHEAT POT PIES.

WHAT'S WHITLEY'S IDEA
OF A PERFECT MARRIAGE?

SEPARATE BEDROOMS
BUT JOINT ACCOUNTS.

EVERYTHING WOULD HAVE
FLOWERS ON IT--

EVEN THE KIDS.

NO, THE CHILDREN
WOULD BE MADE OF CHINTZ.

HEY, ALLISON, GLORIA.

HOW DOES THIS SOUND FOR THE
TITLE OF MY NEW RADIO SHOW?

"PLAY IT AGAIN, DWAYNE WAYNE."

WELL...

IT'S CORNY, BUT STUPID.

I LIKE MARVIN.

WHAT IS THIS MARVIN GUY?

WHO IS HE,
MR. RADIO OR SOMETHING?

HI, MARVIN.

MARVIN!

MR. RADIO.

WE WERE JUST TALKING
ABOUT YOU, MAN.

WHAT'S HAPPENING,
BABY FACE?

HOW'S THE THROAT?

FEELING ANY BETTER?

YEAH, MAN.

THAT COLD SHOWER
DID THE TRICK.

MAVE IS B-B-B-BACK.

NOW, MAVEN...

SHOULD I CALL YOU "MAVEN"?

YOU SHOULDN'T
RUSH THESE THINGS.

I'M ONLY LOOKING OUT
FOR YOUR FUTURE.

CAN I GET ONE MORE
SHOT, PLEASE?

DO YOUR OWN SHOW.

THEY NEED SOMEONE TO
COVER CAMPUS EVENTS.

IS THAT HOW YOU STARTED?

NO, I WAITED FOR
SOMEONE TO GET SICK.

THIS IS IT.

"A WOMAN CAN BALANCE
BOTH WORK AND FAMILY

IF SHE AND HER PARTNER
RESPECT EACH OTHER'S GOALS."

THAT'S A GOOD ARGUMENT.

GUYS, DO
YOU REALIZE

DWAYNE HAS BEEN SITTING
HERE FOR FIVE SECONDS

AND HAS NOT
SAID A WORD?

DWAYNE, WHAT'S WRONG?

YOU LOOK UPSET.

IS SOMETHING WRONG
WITH YOUR SHOW?

NO, NOTHING'S WRONG
WITH THE SHOW.

I'LL JUST BE ON AT A
DIFFERENT TIME TOMORROW...

NEVER.

OH.
OH, DWAYNE.

IT'S ALL RIGHT.

HE'LL PUT ME BACK ON

AS SOON AS I CAN FIND
SOME STUPID CAMPUS EVENT.

GOT ANY IDEAS?

NOT NOW.

WE'RE HELPING MAGGIE
WITH HER DEBATE.

SO FORGET
MY PROBLEM.

THE WHOLE SCHOOL WANTS
TO SEE MAGGIE BEAT WHITLEY.

JALEESA, I COULD CARE LESS
ABOUT SOME STUPID CAMPUS...

WAIT A MINUTE.

"DWAYNE WAYNE PRESENTS:
THAT'S DEBATABLE."

WHOA.

I LIKE IT.

I LOVE IT.

I CAN FEEL IT.

THE KID IS BACK.

OH, THAT'S GOOD.

OH, MY GOD.

I AMAZE MYSELF, TOO.

I DON'T BELIEVE IT!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

YOU DIDN'T PHONE.

YOU DIDN'T WRITE.

I WANTED TO SURPRISE YOU.

YOU DID.

THIS IS MIKE.

HI, MIKE.
HI, MIKE.
HI, MIKE.

HI.

THESE ARE MY ROOMMATES,
JALEESA AND DENISE.

IT WAS A REAL PICTURE.

HEY-O, MIKE-A.

DWAYNE WAYNE.

MIKE, LOOK AT ME.

DWAYNE WAYNE, BABY,
RADIO PRODUCER.

Maggie:
YOU ARE SUCH A LOUSY LIAR.

WILL YOU TELL ME
WHAT'S GOING ON?

YOU ARE AMAZING,
YOU KNOW THAT?

SO?

I GOT A JOB.

YOU GOT A JOB?

WHAT ABOUT LAW SCHOOL?

LAW SCHOOL CAN WAIT.

THIS WAS TOO GOOD TO PASS UP.

WHAT'S THE JOB?

IT'S, UM, A PUBLIC RELATIONS
TYPE JOB.

IT'S IN WASHINGTON, SO IT
COULD REALLY LEAD SOMEWHERE.

BUT WHAT'S THE JOB?

ACTUALLY, IT'S WITH
THE NATIONAL PORK BOARD.

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE UP
BEING A LAWYER

SO YOU CAN PERSUADE PEOPLE
TO EAT MORE PORK?

THAT'S NOT ALL WE DO.

WE'RE VERY COMMITTED TO
THE FIGHT AGAINST HEART DISEASE.

MAGGIE.

COME ON.

THIS COULD BE A GREAT
OPPORTUNITY FOR US.

FOR "US"?

I WANT YOU TO
COME WITH ME.

AND LEAVE SCHOOL?

YOU CAN GO
TO SCHOOL
IN WASHINGTON.

BUT I'M HAPPY HERE.

IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIND
A JOURNALISM PROGRAM THIS GOOD

IN A SCHOOL THIS SIZE.

IT'S TOUGH, BUT
IT WILL WORK OUT.

I CAN'T JUST PICK UP AND LEAVE
BECAUSE YOU GOT SOME PORK JOB.

MAGGIE, I'M DOING THIS
ALL WRONG.

WHAT I SHOULD HAVE SAID IS

I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH,
AND I WANT YOU TO MARRY ME.

HOW DID IT
GO WITH MIKE?

I JUST RAN TEN MILES.

I GOT WINDED AFTER SEVEN,
BUT I CAUGHT A SECOND WIND.

AVOIDING THE QUESTION.

RUNNING LIKE A FOOL.

SOMETHING'S UP.

NOTHING'S UP.

MIKE WANTS US TO GET MARRIED.

WHAT?

MARRIED,
LIKE MY PARENTS MARRIED?

IT'S NOT SUCH
A BAD THING.

I LOVE HIM, HE LOVES ME.

WHAT DID YOU SAY?

DID YOU SAY YES?

ARE YOU KIDDING?

HE'S GOT SOME JOB
WITH THE PORK BOARD--

EXPECTS ME TO FOLLOW HIM
TO WASHINGTON.

HE THINKS HE
CAN RUN YOUR LIFE.

TELL HIM, "NO WAY."

THEN I MIGHT LOSE HIM

AND WHAT IF HE'S
THE ONE FOR ME?

WASHINGTON'S A GREAT CITY.

WHAT ABOUT HER
EDUCATION AND CAREER?

YEAH, WHAT ABOUT THAT?

THEY HAVE JOBS.

THEY HAVE SCHOOLS IN WASHINGTON.

THAT'S TRUE.

I COULD TRANSFER TO GEORGETOWN

GET A JOB AT
THE STATE DEPARTMENT...

HAVE LUNCH BY
THE REFLECTING POOL.

THAT'S A GOOD REASON
TO GET MARRIED.

WHY DID HE DO THIS?

I WAS CRAZY ABOUT HIM.

THEN HE ASKS ME
TO MARRY HIM.

OH, YEAH,
WHAT A BRUTE.

HE'S SO SWEET
AND SMART AND CARING.

AND HE'S SO SELFISH AND STUBBORN
AND SO DAMNED ORGANIZED!

I BETTER RUN ANOTHER FIVE MILES.

( radio :)
Okay, everybody.

Marvin Haven the Music Maven
is back on the track.

And if you're just tuning in

forget what you heard
yesterday--

I've been resurrected.

But thanks anyway for
the eulogy, Dwayne.

I'm about to rock the spot
with a definite sure shot

but first,
this special announcement.

Dwayne:
From the campus
affairs department of W.H.Z.U.

a special program:

That's Debatable.

Complete coverage
of tonight's debate

between Whitley Gilbert

and Maggie Lauten.

Produced by Dwayne Wayne.

Written by Dwayne Wayne.

Your host, Dwayne Wayne.

Featuring in-depth interviews
with the debate stars.

Miss Gilbert

popular sympathy is
with the other side.

Any comments?

Whitley:
In the immortal words of the
great pugilist Muhammed Ali:

"Float like a butterfly,
sting like a bee."

Dwayne:
Tonight at 8:00,
the great debate.

Marvin:
And now, back to the groove
that will make you move!

Denise:
MAGGIE, MENTALLY PICTURE
YOUR NOTES IN YOUR HEAD.

IF THAT FAILS

MENTALLY PICTURE WHITLEY
BLEACHING HER MUSTACHE.

HI, MIKE.

BYE, MIKE.

YOU READY FOR
THE DEBATE?

READY AS
I'LL EVER BE.

I KNOW YOU GOT
A LOT ON YOUR MIND...

I HAVE TO MEMORIZE
A LOT OF FACTS FOR THIS DEBATE.

THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT.

OH, THAT.

WELL...

UM...

I RAN THIS MORNING

AND I'LL RUN AGAIN TOMORROW.

I THINK ABOUT THINGS
WHEN I RUN.

SO?

WHAT DID YOU THINK?

I THOUGHT I'D REALLY
LIKE TO SAY "YES"...

OR "NO"...

OR SOME ANSWER LIKE THAT.

I DON'T WANT TO PRESSURE YOU,
BUT...

I FOUND
A BROWNSTONE APARTMENT.

IT'S GOT A GREAT VIEW
OF THE POTOMAC.

THE BEDROOM
IS GREAT.

IT'S GOT
A FIREPLACE.

IT SOUNDS
REALLY NICE.

I PUT
A DEPOSIT ON IT.

YOU WHAT?

IT'S WALKING DISTANCE
FROM THE PORK BOARD.

YOU PUT MONEY DOWN
ON AN APARTMENT

WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT I WANT TO DO...

AND I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I WANT TO DO.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD NEWS.

I CAN'T TALK ABOUT THIS
RIGHT NOW.

DON'T WORRY.

FROM MY EXPERIENCE

REAL ESTATE VENTURES
ARE ALWAYS EMOTIONAL.

WHY?

WHY?

WHY SHOULD WOMEN STRIVE
TO BE POOR IMITATIONS

OF THE SONS OF ADAM?

WOMEN WERE PLACED ON EARTH

TO REMIND MAN OF HIS NOBLER SELF
THROUGH THE ARTS:

POETRY, SONG, DANCE
AND NEEDLEWORK.

FINALLY, I SUBMIT

THAT THE MATERNAL INSTINCT
DISQUALIFIES US

FROM EVER FINDING TRUE
FULFILLMENT IN THE WORKPLACE.

LET ME PAINT
A PICTURE FOR YOU.

A FEMALE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER,
AND MOTHER

IS WATCHING TWO GREEN BLOBS
RACING TOWARDS EACH OTHER.

SUDDENLY, THERE'S A PHONE CALL.

IT'S LITTLE TIMMY.

HIS TONKA TRUCK IS BROKEN,
AND HE'S CRYING HIS EYES OUT.

WELL, I WOULD NOT CARE TO BE
SIPPING COMPLIMENTARY CHAMPAGNE

ON ONE OF THOSE
DOOMED GREEN BLOBS.

Millie:
BRAVO.

BRAVO.
BRAVO.

MILLIE...

MILLIE,
COOL IT.

THE CHAIR NOW CALLS
UPON MISS MAGGIE LAUTEN

OPPOSING
THE MOTION.

FELLOW STUDENTS AND FACULTY,
GOOD EVENING.

MY OPPONENT MOVES:

"IF A WOMAN CHOOSE
BOTH FAMILY AND CAREER

ONE MUST SUFFER."

( mimicking Whitley: )
WHY? WHY? WHY?

MY OPPONENT'S WHOLE CASE

RESTS ON A FALSE PREMISE--

THE NATURAL DOMINANCE
OF THE MALE.

I HAVE ENCOURAGING NEWS.

IN A RECENT
HILLMAN CHRONICLE POLL

81% OF THE MALE RESPONDENTS

SAID THEY WANTED TO MARRY
A PROFESSIONAL WOMAN.

75% OF THESE MEN

SAID THEY WOULD CONSIDER
MAKING PERSONAL SACRIFICES

FOR THE SAKE OF
THEIR MATES' CAREERS.

THIS MEANS THAT GUYS
ARE BEGINNING TO REALIZE

THAT AN APARTMENT ON THE POTOMAC
ISN'T ENOUGH.

THE FIREPLACE SOUNDS GREAT

BUT THERE HAS TO BE ROOM
FOR WHAT I WANT, TOO.

I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND
AND REJECT THE MOTION.

LET'S MOVE ON
TO REBUTTALS.

MISS
GILBERT?

( applauding )

I WOULD LIKE TO LEAVE YOU
WITH THIS ONE THOUGHT:

THERE IS A REASON WHY MEN AND
WOMEN WERE CREATED DIFFERENT...

AND, WITH OUR FRENCH FRIENDS,
I EXCLAIM...

HOORAY FOR THE DIFFERENCE!

( applauding )

REBUTTAL,
MISS LAUTEN?

I CAN'T.

LADIES
AND GENTLEMEN

WE HAVE A RESERVE SPEAKER
FOR THE REBUTTAL

MISS DENISE
HUXTABLE.

GO AHEAD, DENISE!

HI.

OVER 50% OF ALL MARRIED WOMEN
IN THIS COUNTRY WORK

AND THE DIVORCE RATE
IS NOT GOING UP.

WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?

IT TELLS ME THAT PEOPLE

ARE MANAGING TO BALANCE
THEIR CAREERS AND FAMILY.

ALL I KNOW IS
BOTH MY PARENTS WORK

AND THEY'VE BEEN MARRIED
FOR A LONG TIME.

MOM HELPED DAD
THROUGH MEDICAL SCHOOL.

DAD HELPED MOM
THROUGH LAW SCHOOL.

THERE DEFINITELY WERE
COMPROMISES ALONG THE WAY.

DAD HAD TO TAKE UP COOKING...

WE HAD TO TAKE UP
EATING HIS FOOD.

HA HA HA!

HA HA HA!

THEY PROVED THAT
JUST BECAUSE YOU LOVE SOMEBODY

DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE
TO GIVE UP WHAT YOU WANT

SO THEY CAN GET WHAT THEY WANT.

THE IDEA IS COMPROMISE,
NOT SACRIFICE.

ONE PERSON--

OR AS MY OPPONENT
WOULD HAVE IT

HALF THE HUMAN RACE--

SHOULD NOT HAVE TO GIVE UP
THEIR AMBITIONS

JUST SO THE OTHER PERSON
CAN GET THEIRS.

MAYBE MY OPPONENT
CAN ACCEPT THAT

BUT I CAN'T.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

ALL RIGHT.

OW!

HA HA!

THANK YOU, DENISE.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY, "AYE."

AYE.

OPPOSED SAY, "NAY."

NAY!

MOTION DEFEATED.

ALL RIGHT!

YES!

THAT'S
MY GIRL!

NOTHING SHOULD
EVER COME BETWEEN US

EXCEPT MAYBE THIS COMMERCIAL.

YOU GOT UP THERE,
YOU MADE YOUR POINTS--

I WAS IMPRESSED.

YOU WERE PRETTY GOOD.

I WAS, WASN'T I?

HOW DID I DO IT?

I DON'T KNOW,
BUT YOU BEAT WHITLEY.

I WILL SLEEP WELL TONIGHT.

WHAT TIME IS IT?

11:56.

YOU THINK MIKE AND MAGGIE

ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT
COMPROMISE VERSUS SACRIFICE?

IF SHE'S NOT BACK
BEFORE CURFEW

SHE WILL BE DISCUSSING
COMPROMISE VERSUS SACRIFICE

WITH STEVIE.

11:56. MADE IT.

WE THOUGHT YOU AND MIKE
WERE OFF TO WASHINGTON.

WE HAD A GREAT TALK

AND WE DECIDED THAT
WE WOULDN'T RUSH THINGS.

MAGGIE, I'M SO GLAD!

ME, TOO.

LIVING ALONE WITH DENISE
WOULD BE FRIGHTENING.

WE DECIDED,
BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU DID

WE'LL NAME
OUR FIRSTBORN "DENISE."

OH, MAGGIE,
THAT'S SWEET.

WHAT IF IT'S A BOY?

WE'LL NAME HIM "JALEESA."
