Anthony: This is my secret diary. Nobody gets to read it.
Anthony: How do you spell… "My"? How do you spell "Name"? How do you spell "Is"? (etc etc) (Note: Not the real diary content, of course).
Anthony: I've taped it shut so nobody can read it.
Anthony: You're not allowed to read it.
Anthony: And I won't tell you what it says.
Eric: Nobody cares what's in your diary.
(Pause. Anthony's eyes fill up with tears).
Me: I care what's in the diary.
Anthony: Well, you can't read it. It's private. It's mine.
Me: Do you want to read it it to me?
Anthony (leaping on to my lap): If you want me to read it to you, I'll do that.
Anthony: What does "M Y" spell? What does "N A M E" spell?…
There are parallels to adult life all over this…
