Clara: I like skipping. It’s like making my feet clap.
Clara (overheard while talking to her dolls): Ariel isn’t here today because she went to the gym. And then she had a meeting. And then she got kicked in the face.
Clara (sitting in a chair intently watching me sweep): Look, I’m watching a movie of you, Mom! I’m watching a movie of you sweeping the floor.
Mommy (talking to daddy): Have you noticed how much this plant grew?
Clara (running in from another room): Gru?! From Despicable Me? Is he coming over?!
Clara (holding two Lego people and making them talk to each other): “Hi, I’m Eric!” “Hi, I’m Italian!”
Clara: We’re walking so far. I think we’re walking to… New Jersey!
Mommy: Are you lucky or what?!
Daddy (playing the Broadway version of the song from Newsies instead of the movie version that Clara’s used to)
Clara: What is this?!
Daddy: Can you tell the difference?
Clara: Yes! This is terrible.
Clara: Her name is Roo. Like ruined.
Mommy (to daddy, while talking about the showhouse we’re working on): They’re saying we might need to get a special permit for that window.
Clara: A special KERMIT?!?!?
