Maxine's father walks in with a chicken under each arm.
Maxine looks at him pleadingly, still distraught.
MAXINE: Do you really know where mom is?
FATHER, looking fondly at the chickens: Don't be such a silly goose, sweetheart!
Maxine looks deeply unimpressed with his pun.
FATHER: She's right behind you.
MAXINE: No, I mean Mom. My Mom.
FATHER, looking off: Your father is right here. Even your brothers! Why don't you relax while I put on the kettle?
