(upbeat music) (upbeat music continues) (glasses clinking) Fodgy, hurry up! I dried like, eight glasses in the time it took you to wash a single fork. I'm not sure Dad even owns eight glasses. (groans) Just pick up the pace, please. I've got things to do, places to be. No problem. (towel slaps) (Fodgy chuckles) Wow, you two are flying through those dishes. You know what would make this go even faster? If you didn't pre-wash every dish before putting it in the dishwasher. You know, just for kicks. Let it do its job. You mean replace my children's chore with a machine? Never. Ugh. Hey, while you're at it, I was just hoping to go over some new family rules. Huh? (chuckles) As a family, it's important to spend good, quality time together. Wrap it up, man. I've got a date with the twins to work on our Cave Cavaders server. We've got worlds to build, glory to claim, and we gotta do it all before the new season launches this- Earth to Lilly, are you listening? (scoffs) Of course I'm listening. Modthiv, Miuri, and I have been trying to pick the perfect spawn point for weeks, and I finally figured it out. Ooh, we're gonna run the greatest server ever! Oh, for any of you old folks, that basically means we're building our own video game inside the existing game. (chuckles) Cool, right? So, that's why I've decided, no video games after dinner on school nights. Wait, what? Where did this come from? Ugh, as I just explained, not only do I want to spend more time as a family, but it's become near impossible to get you to turn off the games and go to sleep. He means no playing video games, not building them, right? When you say no video games, you mean? No video games means no video games. But I have plans! This is so not cool. Why do you get to just change the rules out of nowhere? Because I'm the parent. Oh yeah? Well, Mom's also the parent, and she lets us play video games whenever we want. As long as our homework is done, and our grades don't slip. Well, you're not at Mom's house. (groans) Look, my homework is done, my grades are fine, and I have important stuff I have to do in Cave Cavaders tonight. It will still be there this weekend. This is totally unfair! Lilly, that's enough. (Lilly gulps) Perhaps you should take some time to cool off in your room. Ooh! You know, I'm good with no games tonight. You can't send me to my room because I'm already going there, and you better believe I'm gonna slam the door. (door slams) (groans and gasps) Whoa! (chuckles) Now this feels better. A place where I get to decide what, wait, what is happening? (feet twinkling) (Lillycorn grunting) Am I not touching the ground? Haven't you ever seen a storm before? Brace yourself, Lillycorn, floating is only the start....
