Daugh­ter, hold­ing crab: Oh, dad­dy, it’s so cute. Can I keep it?
Fa­ther: No, hon­ey, it’s too small.
Daugh­ter: No, dad­dy, I want it for a pet.
Fa­ther: It has to live in the ocean, hon­ey. We have to let it go.
Daugh­ter: But, dad­dy, I love it. Can’t I keep it?
Fa­ther: No, ba­by.
Daugh­ter: Dad­dy?
Fa­ther: Yes, hon­ey?
Daugh­ter: Can I step on it?
