Mom: Xena, do you know anything about this? I leave you alone for two hours and this is what you do? I tried to be Kind by putting you in a nice big bathroom instead of in a kennel, and this is what you do?
How do you know I did that? Uh, Lucy might have gone in and chewed it after you let me out.
Maybe if you just left me free in the house with Lucy, things like that wouldn’t happen.

Mom: Xena, you know I don’t leave you alone very often. I did what you asked and you were doing so well. Then, I leave you with Lucy and your sick Dad while I go to a class and this is what you do?
Uh, I was watching for you and, uh, oh boy, am I getting a time-out?
I am Xena the Schnauzer Princess Warrior in time-out
