I made this page with the kind help of a former student, fluent in Polish. The parents are discussing the meaning of Eve's question - confirming that it is rhetorical in nature and they are meant to agree. Around this time I was finding opportunities for the characters to show their asses in front of older people - visibly, in ways that would cause them embarrassment and motivate them to grow.

He kinda looks like my stepfather. Who's also Polish.
