  • Morey: B- but you said I had a year to try and make it??
  • Morey's dad: Yeah, well - your mother wants me to retire before then.
  • Morey: I DON'T want to sell granite countertops, Dad!
  • Morey's dad: Those countertops pay for your lifestyle, young man!

Level 33 - Always Room For Dessert

  • Mary enters the market. Richard enters with the books.
  • Mary: Dad!
  • Mary and her dad hug.
  • Richard: I ran into Jennifer - she told me you've been studying hard for the bar.
  • Mary: It's coming up soon. I'm actually considering putting it off until fall.
  • Richard: Why would you do that?
  • Mary: I'd rather just take it once and pass, then have to go through this twice.
  • Richard: You're a Vanderworth - the law is in our blood! Of course you'll pass.
  • Richard places the books.
  • Richard: Here - I dug up some old textbooks to help you study.
  • Mary: Thanks, Dad. Hey! How about I make you some lunch?
  • Richard: I'm sorry, dear… They've called an emergency board meeting at the firm.
  • Mary: Emergency, huh? Did the office run out of vermouth or something?
  • Richard kisses Mary on her forehead.

  • Richard leaves the market.

During the level

  • Mary clears the books from the table, moves the book to the barrel.

After the level

  • Morey: Croak-a-cola!
  • Morey: Get it? CROAK-a-cola?
  • Mary pleases.
  • Morey: You're right - it needs more work.
  • Peter enters the market.
  • Mary: Hey! How was the Country Mouse?
  • PEter: I quit.
  • Mary's scared.
  • Peter: I spent a day in their kitchen and realized it just wasn't for me.

  • Mary: Alright, but I can't stay out long. I have to study.
  • Peter and Mary leave for a date.

Level 34 - Safe With The Law

  • Peter: I don't get it... Why go through all this effort? Your parents?
  • Mary: It's really not about them, Peter.
  • Mary: As a lawyer I'd have financial security, plus the chance to do pro bono work sometimes - help people who really need it.
  • Mary: It doesn't hurt that my parents are owner-partners in their own firm, either.
  • Mary: They have a million contracts I can take advantage of, and one day their shares in the firm will be passed down to me.
  • Mary: Compare all that to bouncing from restaurant to restaurant once a month, and suddenly it doesn't sound so bad.
  • Peter tries to serve Mary.
  • Peter: Please, I've seen you drop those books like a hot rack the moment someone offers you a chance to do something interesting in the kitchen.
  • Mary: Is that an offer?
  • Peter and Mary kiss each other.
  • Then Mary serves Peter.
  • Mary: Anyhow, I'd think you be glad to have a wealthy sugar mama for a girlfriend.
  • Peter: What'd be the point if I don't ever get to see you?
  • Peter: Or if you're so miserable working a job you hate you've got no energy for anything else?
  • Mary: Well then, maybe I'll have to buy us a restaurant where we can cook together sometimes.
  • Morey enters the market.
  • Mary: Anyhow, it's late... I should get back to studying. What time is it?
  • Morey: Morning!
  • Morey kicked the crate and slipped!

  • Mary: He did!?
  • Mary: I mean, of course he did.

  • Quierno: A lawyer and a cook have about as much in common as a porcupine and a porpoise.
  • Quierno: And you? Luigi told me you play the violin like a lark...
  • Quierno: ...when you can be bothered.
  • Morey: Pfft! Who needs a violin when you have material like THIS!
  • Morey: Ahem! Why won't the lobster share his toys?
  • Morey: Because he's shellfish.
  • Morey: 'Shellfish!'
  • Quierno: Hire them,' my brother said. 'You'll thank me later,' he said...
  • Quierno leaves the market.
  • Mary's down.

  • Mary: Oh no! I fell asleep...
  • Mary: I didn't get ANY studying done, and the mar exam is almost here!
  • Quierno: Perhaps there is a reason why you fell asleep...
  • Mary: Like what? Like I'm putting it off subconsciously because I don't want to pass? Don't be ridic-

  • Peter: They have truuuuuufles…
  • Mary: I mean it, I have to stay focused.
  • Peter: ...and REAL sherry from Portugal.
  • Mary: PETER - I HAVE to study.
  • Peter: Jeez, Mary! You can't keep living someone else's life.
  • Mary: Uh... whose life am I living, exactly?
  • Peter: I don't know - but whoever it belongs to, it's not yours.
  • Mary: I think I know who I am better than you do, thanks.
  • Peter: Weird, because I thought I was dating someone who was passionate about the same things I am.
  • Mary: And what would that be, exactly? Drifting from kitchen to kitchen with no plans for your future?
