Just me ragging on a tired old crutch that's been used to no end by sitcoms, movies and so on.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - (BG) "You know what I want this year? A fresh, live Christmas Tree!" (CW, laying back on the couch) "Well, you go right ahead and get one!" (BG) "But I want you to come with me, Cassie! It'll be so much fun!" (CW) "Beth, it's gonna be freezing, the lots are crowded, and besides, we have an artificial tree that's perfectly fine!" (BG) "But I want a real tree this year! And I want us to pick one out together!" (CW) "I'm sorry, I really don't feel like it!" (BG) "Oh, come on, Cassie!" (CW) "Bethany, QUIT IT! I'm NOT gonna go Christmas tree shopping and there's NOTHING you can do about it!!!" [Cut to Bethany and Matt at the Christmas tree lot] (MG) "No, I'm not Cassie. No, she's not here. Did you SERIOUSLY think we were gonna do that pathetic, worn-out cliché?"
