Enter Head Architect Pamela Faraday and her son Shoal
Shoal Well what?
Pamela What do you think?
Shoal It's awful small.
Pamela I think it's kind of cute. Nightstands, external lamps—the table has legs.
Shoal [laughing] The television is hanging on hooks. And there are windows! Look, you can see straight through to the other houses and into their windows. How stupid!
Pamela All right, hurry and change your clothes, Shoal. We're about to go eat in a minute.
Shoal [plucking at the lamp switch]
Pamela Yes, go eat. They have a dining hall here.
Shoal A dining hall—It's like a hotel. A resort.
Pamela Go change your clothes. You look like you've been living in a truck for a week.
Shoal Mom, we’ve both been living in a truck for a week.
[they both change clothes]

Pamela Shoal, hurry up. It's time to go.
Shoal I'm ready, Mom.
man Oh, hello there. Shoal is it?
man Are you Beta Generation?
Shoal I am, but I'm not as stupid as you think.
Pamela Shoal, please.
man No worries, kiddo. You're among friends.
Pamela Let's go. Behave yourself, young man.
Shoal What did I do?
Pamela You know what I mean. No remarks, okay?
Shoal No worries, Mom. We're among friends
