MOTHER

Grandma?!!!  

FRED

Yes! She said she'd take a taxi, but I said I'd be right down... Oh, my gosh, she's still on the phone!   

DAD

Why didn't she let us know?  

MOTHER

Fred said she wanted to surprise us.  

DAD

You'd better get moving.  

DOT

Can I ride down with you?  

TOM

Me, too (closes his books and goes to the door).   

MOTHER

(to TOM) What about your homework? (to DOT) And your nails?  

DOT

They're okay. 

TOM

I'll do it later.   

MOTHER

Hurry, dear. What are you waiting for?  

FRED

The keys.  

DAD

Oh ... oh, sorry. (goes to FRED, hands him the keys) Now drive careful.  

MOTHER

(correcting DAD's English) Care-fu-lly.  

DAD

Yes, dear. (he goes to the window and watches the children leave)  

MOTHER

Now why didn't she let me know she was coming? She knows I like to have things ready.  

DAD

If she let you know, you'd get all worked up about everything... cooking cleaning ... Tom's hair...  

MOTHER

But she should have called. Suppose we'd been away?  

DAD

In the middle of the week? With the kids in school and me at work? Not likely!  

MOTHER

Just the same, I wish I'd known.

DAD

(sits down to read his paper) No communication... generation gap... only at the other end of the line. (meaning that there is a generation gap not only between parents and children but also between parents and grandparents)
