DialogueEdit

Tex: [whimpers] Oh, no...
Mason: [walks into Tex's room] Tex? You alright? You lose something?
Tex: [laying under his bed with only his feet sticking out] It's kind of nice down here. Cool and quiet.
Mason: Yeah, well maybe you should hurry it up so you can come have breakfast under the kitchen table. Then maybe you can catch a ride under the school bus!
Tex: [gets up from under his bed and wraps a blanket around him] You would like that. Wouldn't you?

Fortune Teller: You may think of one yes or no question to yourself.
Tex: [he sees a horse pass by and thinks about Rowdy] Yeah, okay.
Fortune Teller: I am sorry, the answer is no.

Tex: [in Lem's new car] Come on, let's go for a ride!
Mason: [points at Tex] What do you think he is? A baboon?!
Tex: Who, me?

Ms. Carlson: And Tex, I don't want another report on "Smokey the Cow Horse".
Tex: Yeah, but I read it every time.
Ms. Carlson: Why don't you read another book by the same author?
Tex: You mean, that guy, wrote another book?
Ms. Carlson: Yes, Tex. In the library.
Tex: Oh, wow!
