Daddy, Daddy, slow down. I wan’ out.

I can do’d it myse’f Coral. Stop. You’re mean, lemme go!

You’re not my mommy, I don’ hafta do what you say.

  1. I cannot help but wonder how much of his mothers hatred for Coral has filtered into him… You’ve done a great job with the child’s voice, very believable and likeable. Nicely done.


  2. Nice! So now I feel even more like Coral might not be a good person. Monday’s voice of Phoebe I thought might have been an unreliable narrator, but this kid seems to really not like Coral. We’ll see what everyone else has to say about her.
