Sam: Michael has “house rules” for visiting him.
Peggy: Yes. Many people have house rules for guests. Grandma and Grandpa have house rules.
Paige (remembering her University of Iowa roommates): We had house rules, too, Sam. You had to tell us in advance if you were going to come over. And you couldn’t eat our food.
Sam (after a pause): I have house rules. No temper tantrums. And don’t make a mess.
