Quinn: We’re, really, really married.

(She kisses my head and leaves the room.)

Quinn: Daddy, I’m gonna go potty, don’t clear my plate, ok? I’ll be right back.

Jeremy: OK, no problem.

Quinn: Thanks, Big Guy!

Scene: While running an easy 3 miles through my neighborhood with a friend, Jeremy and Quinn drive by in the car on the way to the store. Jeremy slows the car down and rolls down Quinn’s window so she can say hi as they drive by.
