We Interrupt the Holiday Wrap Up with This Brief Story.

The Scene: Dinnertime.  We are all sitting around the table.  Dan is explaining to the girls, who had endured a particularly combative afternoon with each other, complete with Shut up! and half hearted face slapping and consequences, the importance of being kind to each other.  He illustrates his point by quoting Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, that wonderful movie from 1989 that launched Keanu Reeve's career.

Dan: Girls, as one character in a famous movie said, "Be excellent to each other and party on, dudes."

Michaela: Wait- who said that?

Jenna, excitedly: I know! It was Martin Luther King, Jr!

(Dan and Cheryl laugh and cringe at the same time, all the while saying silent apologies to MLK)

Doesn't quite sound like an MLK quote but give her credit for knowing the name!!! SO funny!
