1ConvDiamondCityJohnCathy01Scene0013AAFDJohn: Hey Ma. I was thinking of trying out a new look. Wanna be my guinea pig?{you're always hard on your son, especially if he's trying something new / Stern} Not if it's going to be like the last mess you tried on me.John: The top bun? Ma, that was the most popular haircut in town for weeks! All the ladies in the Upper Stands wanted one.A1a
20013AAFBJohn: The top bun? Ma, that was the most popular haircut in town for weeks! All the ladies in the Upper Stands wanted one.{Stern} And all of those were better than the half-assed job you did on me. You don't practice enough, Johnny. I keep telling you, but you don't listen.John: Oh, I listen. All I friggin' do is listen...A1a
3ConvDiamondCityJohnCathy02Scene0013AAF9John: No Ma. You haven't. And for the record, me and Pa got on great.{upset that your son isn't measuring up to his father / Stern} Your father was a real hair stylist, John. He never resorted to the cheap tricks and shortcuts you always pull.John: Maybe that was because he just wanted to paint, Ma!A1a
40013AAF7{upset with your son over some prior argument, you decide to push his buttons to get back at him / Stern} John, have I told you today how much your father would be disappointed in you?John: No Ma. You haven't. And for the record, me and Pa got on great.A1a
50013AAF6John: Maybe he thought if he did everything perfect, you'd get off his back, and he'd have time to be himself.{angry but also sad and upset that you never seem to get through to your son / Angry} And why is that so hard for you, huh? Is it so wrong that I want you to be the best?John: I ain't havin' this conversation again, Ma. Just let me work, okay?A1a
