Coup de Pa

SCOTT: And is your husband hoping for a son?

DIANA: No, he wants another daughter.

SCOTT: Oh?

DIANA:
Yes. That way he remains king of the house.

SCOTT:
Ah. Yes, I remember when we had to depose my father.

DIANA: Really?

SCOTT:
My brothers and I launched a coup, then set up a short-lived military junta. After two months we were invaded by the United States, and my father was restored to power. It's because we were spreading revolutionary socialist ideas.

DIANA:
Huh?

SCOTT: One of my brothers turned out to have a been a CIA plant.

DIANA:
What?

SCOTT:
I could go on.
