Mother: Good. Busy. How was movie night last night?
Child 1: Good! We watched Gone With The Wind.
Mother: You did! Wow!
Child 1: Yup.
Mother: Well, what did you think? I know it wasn't Little Mermaid or Pixar, but I think it's time we start watching some...other classics, you know? Really get into some great films together as a family, things we can talk about and all enjoy together.
Child1: Except you were at work.
Mother: That's right. Well. Hmmm. You know Gone With The Wind is pretty long. You watched the whole thing last night?
Child 1: Yup.
Child 2: Yes. It was weird.
Mother: Weird how?
Child 2: Did that little girl, Bonnie, die?
Mother: Oh...yes. She did. Did that upset....
Child 1: And why was that one guy called "Ashley"? That was ridiculous. Ashley is a girl's name.
Mother: Well, not really in all cases....
Child 2: I liked Scarlett.
Child 1: Yeah, I liked her.
Child 2: She was weird.
Mother: Weird in a...good way?
Child 1: And there was a bad word at the end.
Mother: It's a very famous movie line.
Child 2: We know. We know. That's what Daddy told us. We know.
Mother: So, what did you think of the story?
Child 2: It was confusing.
Child 1: It was great. I liked it a lot.
Mother: Oh yes? Wonderful! Tell me some of the things you liked.
Child 2: All the costumes!
Child 1: And the horses!
Child 2: And the people!
Child 1: I really liked that guy Fred.
Child 2: I liked Scarlett, but she was weird.
Mother: Hold on, hold on.
Child 1 : What?
Mother: Fred? I don't remember a Fred.
Child 1: You know, Fred Butler. The main guy. The guy who says the bad word at the end.
Child 2: Yeah, he said the D word.
Mother: Wait. You mean to tell me that you watched umpteen hours of one of the greatest and most romantic movies of all time, and the entire time you thought the lead male character was named "Fred"?
Child 1: Fred Butler.
Child 2: It was a weird movie.
Child 1: But we liked it! Really, Mommy!
Child 1 and 2: We're going to go play now.
Mother: Do you know that when they watched Gone With The Wind last night, the entire time they thought that Rhett Butler's name was "Fred"?
Father: I don't think they watched the whole movie.
Mother: Then how did they know the ending?
Father: I think they only watched the second side of the disc.
Father: I don't know. It did seem kind of brief.
Mother: Well, did the war last longer or shorter than a weekend?
Mother: Fred Butler.
