MARION: No, I feel nauseous. MUM/MOM: Open your window, the air will do you good. QUENTIN: I'm thirsty. MARION: I'm hungry. QUENTIN: When do we get there? DAD: That's enough now! We'll get there when we get there! MARION: Dad! Quentin won't stop bothering me! MUM/MOM: Kids, stop fighting, we'll be there soon.
