Primo: Would you cut up a pear for me?
Me: Can't you do it?
Primo: No! You always do it for me.
Me: No I don't!
Primo: Well sometimes you do it for me.
Me: Very. Occasionally.
Me: Oh for pete's sake. Regardez and learn (as I cut the darn pear).
Primo: Why do I need to know how to cut a pear?
Me: What happens if I die before you?
Primo: I won't eat fruit.
