Jennifer: We didn't discuss this.

John: I know, but it's a surprise. You can't.

Jennifer: Hi, guys.

Woman: Just adopted the mom last month. Family that gave her up didn't even know she was pregnant.

Jennifer: Are you sure we're ready for this?

Woman: Well, like I told you...you gotta wait three weeks for them to be weaned before you can bring 'em home.

Jennifer: I'm not even gonna be here.

John: Why?

Jennifer: I'll be in Gainesville, covering that trial.

John: Oh, that's right. That's okay. It'll give me a chance to bond with him...and get a head start on training 'em

Jennifer: That's true.

John: Get 'em squared away before you get home.

Jennifer: That's true.

Jennifer: Well, how are we gonna pick one?

Woman: Girls are 300. Boys are 275. Except for that little guy there. Him you could have for 200 even.

Jennifer: This one? You're so sweet. You're like a little clearance puppy.

Jennifer: Hello, puppy.

John: This one likes you. Clearance Puppy likes you.

Woman: Well, that's your guy. Jennifer: I was gonna pick you anyway. Don't tell anybody. Don't tell the others.

John: We gotta double-time it just a little here, honey.

Jennifer: Really wish I didn't have to go.

John: Are you kidding me? It's gonna be great. You spent eight months on this trial. Honestly, I'm jealous.

Jennifer: Really? Tax evasion? That's what makes you jealous?

John: Well, it's sexier than speed bumps.

Jennifer: Okay, you call me the minute you get him home. Okay.

John: Okay.

Jennifer: We also have to come up with a name for him.

John: Yes. Let's brainstorm it. I'll just call him Clearance Puppy till you get back.

Jennifer: Are you gonna be okay?

John: You're worried about me with a puppy?

Jennifer: I am.
