No it's true, you know I hate it here John. 

 

DAD

Do you hate it more than your own granddaughter hitting you with her car? Because that's what happened your last grand escape plan if you don't remember. 

 

RILEY

Wow, real sensitive dad, she still remembers. (To Pearl)

Right? 

 

PEARL

First off, that's why we switched cars, I couldn't hear the Prius and Riley is a terrible driver.

RILEY

(correcting)

Just a distracted driver.

 

DAD

How do you two think this is okay? They want to charge you with a felony crime.

 

RILEY

Why do you keep her locked up in here, Dad? She hates it.

I can talk for myself, Riley.

(To John)

It's a fucking hell hole.
