So I'm Imagining the Conversation...

Scary Dad: Boy, you got our daughter in trouble. Now you've got to pay the price.

"Fiance:" Yes, sir, I know that. I've already promised you that I'll marry her, even though I'm only 18 and don't have a job yet and we'll probably have to live with you.

Mom: Yes, yes, that's all well and good...but you have to do one more thing.

"Fiance" pales and gulps, thinking of their facility with large weapons: What, ma'am?

Mom: You have to go on stage with us when I give a big speech and smile a lot to show how what you're doing, the manly thing and all, is what you REALLY WANT to do. You do want to do the right thing, don't you?

"Fiance:" Yes, ma'am.

Scary Dad: And of course it's going to be on national television, so everyone can know your shame and humiliation. Yessir, you have to pay the price.

Mom: And maybe other young people won't make the same mistake you two made.

"Fiance" thinks maybe he got into more than he bargained for.

Sad and manipulative.

Silence from Lauralew, unless one can hear her shaking her head in utter disgust.
