Kady: I'll eat when Mommy gets back from California.
Michael: Well, Mommy has to stay with Grandma till her leg's healed. She might not be back for another two weeks.
Kady: So? I'll wait.
Michael: You're gonna get real skinny and your head's gonna get big, and you could be, like, looking like E.T.
Kady refuses to eat until her mom gets back in town. Michael is trying to get her to eat something.
