Miranda Finds a House (Sort of)
Wendy: Good morning to you too, Miri.
Wendy: Uh... well, it isn't really for you, Miri.
Wendy: I was leaning towards running it over with my car, actually.
Miranda: That's just silly.
Wendy: This house isn't fit for a pixie to live in.
Wendy: This kit is a total piece of junk, Miri.
Wendy: It just needs a bonfire.
Wendy: Right, but it's a cheap kit and I don't know what I'm doing. That means it's going to be awful. Let's go to Norm's and pick out a GREAT kit and I'll build you a real house. Now that I kind of have an idea of what I'm doing and all.
Wendy: So? It'll be better!
Miranda: But... well, I was your first doll, right? And... you've got dolls that are better than me, nicer and all, but I'm still the FIRST. And there's only ONE first. Right? Just like this house!
Miranda: No, it's not. First doll gets the first dollhouse. I think that's in a rulebook somewhere.
Wendy: It is not!
Wendy: It doesn't matter, since you won't be living in it. Seriously, I would never get any sleep with you living here!
Wendy: I would live in constant terror that it was going to fall apart around you, collapse and kill you.
Wendy: Yes, and the kit is also really, really thin wood. Even the best builder in the world couldn't turn this sow's ear into a silk purse, Miri. It's junk!
Wendy: It isn't YOUR house!
Wendy: Sure. When it's done, and you see what an unstable piece of junk it is, if you still want it, it's yours.
