Mike demonstrates his authority by giving one of the boys the answer "Because I'm the boss." The conversation gets rather silly from there.
G: No, Mommy is the boss! [smart kid]
M: Ha! Who decided what we were having for dinner tonight.
Me: It's okay George. Mommy makes all the important decisions.
M: That's what Mom thinks...really she is just my secretary. I'm the Chief Executive [Mike's head explodes with ego]
everyone laughs at the obvious foolishness of this comment - even Carli Grace
A: (laughing) Good one Dad!
