Ruby: Ginger, for the last time, I’m not your nephew. Trying to scare me as you enter a room isn’t cute.
Ginger: You’re not even looking at me!
Ruby: Encouraging you is part of the problem.
Ginger: When you ignore me, I get worse.
Ruby: When I encourage you, you get incorrigible.
Ginger: Look, Ma, NO HAIR!
Ruby: What? Ohmygoodness! Ginger, you cut your hair!
Ginger: D’you like it?
Ruby: It’s cute! Do you like it?
Ruby: So, you just…decided to cut it all off?
Ginger: Yeah. Pretty much.
Ruby: Huh. Is that why you wanted to meet me at the mall?
Ginger: Well, you said you wanted to do stuff and I got bored waiting and the girl in the poster looked nice with the haircut, so…
Ruby: You got here early, then.
Ginger: By an hour. And a half. But I got us coffee!!!
Ruby: Where is it?
Ginger: I may have finished yours after I finished mine.
Ruby: Is that why you can’t stand still?
Ginger: Maybe. So, what do you need to do?
Ruby: Oh, I have to exchange this.
Ginger: That? I bought that for you.
Ruby: I know. What made you think I was a size 0?
Ginger: Um…see, when I went shopping for the underwear shower, I didn’t know what size you were, so I had a picture of you blown up to life-size and carried it around with me. The nightgown fit the cardboard cut-out, so I thought it would fit you, too.
Ginger: I guessed.
Ruby: You could have called me.
Ginger: But then, you’d know I was buying you something!
Ruby: It was a bridal shower thrown by girls, for a girl, with girls as the only invited guests. I kinda figured you were buying me something.
Ginger: Well, but…be nice to me. My hair is short.
Ruby: You paid someone to make it short.
Ginger: Be nice to me, I look cute? That doesn’t sound as compelling…
Ruby: Neither argument is really all that compelling. Seriously, you thought I was a size 0? I guess I’ll try to be complimented.
Ginger: Do. So, what are you exchanging it for?
Ruby: This. Isn’t it cute?
Ginger: Ooh, pretty. Oh…huh.
Ruby: Huh, what?
Ginger: It says to wash in cold water.
Ruby: Well, yeah, otherwise it could shrink.
Ginger: Yeah, I know.
Ruby: Okay. Then why are you looking at the pajama set like that?
Ginger: Why don’t sheep shrink when it rains?
Ruby: …because rain is cold.
Ginger: Do sheep take baths?
Ruby: I’m so not getting into this with you. Before I know it, you’ll start asking if robots dream of electronic sheep…
Ginger: Do they?!
Ruby: Only when it rains.
Ginger: Do you think I should only wash my hair in cold water? It could shrink…
Ruby: I don’t think it works like that.
Ginger: But…it might.
Ruby: If you’re good and don’t make a scene when I make this exchange, I’ll buy you another coffee.
Ruby: No. But in ten seconds you won’t remember.
Ginger: That’s not true. I’ll remember.
Ruby: Remember what?
Ginger: …to wash my hair in cold water from now on?
Ruby: Good girl. I’m so proud.
