Conversations with live people

A conversation with my niece Hannah (age 12):

JOHN: You're watching Desperate Housewives?
HANNAH: Yeah. And Molly's watching it.
JOHN: Oh, Molly's watching it! That makes it OK then. [Molly is a little less than 18 months old.]
HANNAH: Well, I finished watching all the episodes of Torchwood.
JOHN: Your mom lets you watch Torchwood?
HANNAH: She hasn't said I can't watch it. I don't think she knows what it is.
JOHN: I'll bet she doesn't!

Then I showed her that Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who, which she thought was pretty neat.
