Zephan’s favorite days are when he’s home for the mail delivery. Edna’s least favorite days are when he’s left for work.
Elsie Hey, I wanted to say I really admire all of your new construction work, Zephan.
Zephan Elspeth, um, it’s Mr. Margolis. And I mostly lay bricks, um, at the time being.
Danny Hey, Elsie, you know the new playground on Sandwich..?
Elsie Piss off, Margolis.
The Margolis twins (as well as Toby and Elsie Delaney-Brown) started college on Day 20. This is a very emotional moment for Zephan, not just as a big achievement but as a start of a new, relatively fancy-free and footloose life. With just his youngest still living at home and the money being less tight, he finally has the time to take care of his own life. It’s kind of terrifying, really.
Yes, but who is going to reimburse ME for days of rage and waking up in the middle of the night to mope?
Screw YOU! I am going to college and I’m going to make out with all the hot guys on campus and never call you again!
And that was the end of Sarah’s first committed relationship.
Between soccer practice and struggling to keep up his falling grades, Jamie’s stretched thin. He’s “a bad influence on his younger brother”, his girlfriend is unhappy and wants more attention. Overall, the last few days of high school were no fun for Jamie Margolis.
