Before the Revolving Line of CreditEdit
Announcer: "Tonight on Supernanny, Jo meets the Eriksonner Family. With four out-of-control boys."
[Fred and Barry wrestle each other, knocking over a vase in the process]
Sarah: "Oh my god! Boys!"
[Peter runs through the house naked]
Sarah: "Peter, come back here."
[Sarah chases him]
Jo: "You will have to listen to what your parents say. If you don't..."
Fred: "Well what if they tell me to do something really dumb."
Jo: "Let's take a look and see who we got here this time."
???: "Hi, we're the Eriksonner Family! I'm Sarah, and I'm a wedding planner!"
???: "And I'm Mikey, a construction worker."
Sarah: "And we have four sons. Fred who is 11, Barry who is 9, Derek who is 4 and Peter who is 2."
Derek: "Eat my shorts!"
Sarah: "Derek, get out. We are doing the submission reel."
Derek: "I don't (bleep)ing care."
[Fred and Barry run into the room, Peter trailing after them]
Mikey: "Boys, we are doing the submission reel."
[Barry jumps on the couch, laughing]
Jo: "Well those boys are definitely running this household. Don't worry Sarah and Mikey, I'm on my way."
Jo: "You are a beautiful young couple with four beautiful children."
Sarah: "Thank you."
Jo: "But, I am appaled by the behavior I am seeing."
Mikey: "Oh that we know. We know it's appaling."
Jo: "You maybe know, but you are not doing anything about it either, are you?"
Sarah: "I spank them."
Jo: "And that is part of the problem. Because you are teaching your sons that it is okay to hit."
Sarah: "I don't really feel that way."
Jo: "Well, I need for you to be 100% commited to not spanking them anymore. If you are not, then I might as well leave."
Sarah: "Okay. I'll try."
Jo: "I'll be back first thing tomorrow morning."
Sarah: "Derek, that's rude."
Jo: "Today I decided to introduce the Eriksonner the Family House Rules."
[Mikey and Sarah gather their sons to meet Jo in the living room for a meeting]
Jo: "All right, everyone. Today I'd like to introduce the Family House Rules."
Sarah: "Are you boys paying attention? This is very important that you listen."
[The boys are sleeping]
Jo: "How about we wake them up now, Sarah and Mikey?"
[Mikey walks over and begins to shake the boys awake]
Barry: "What the (bleep)?!"
Jo: "I could not believe what Barry said."
Jo: "First rule: no swearing."
Barry: "Blah blah blah blah. You are annoying me. That's not swearing."
Jo: "No, but it is backchatting. Second Rule: No backtalk."
Mikey: "You hear that boys?"
[The boys just stare at him]
Fred: "I thought we weren't allowed to talk back."
Jo: "Rule number three: No hurting one another."
Derek: "But I like hurting people, it's fun."
Jo: "Hearing a four-year-old say this is quite disturbing to say the least. I cannot believe that the parents are not as appalled by this as I am."
Naughty Room and Naughty StepEdit
Jo: "I'm now going to introduce the Naughty Step."
Barry: "I'm not sitting on some dumb Naughty Step."
Jo: "That is right. You are not."
[Barry looks confused]
Jo: "You will be sitting in a Naughty Room."
Jo: "And off you go to the Naughty Room right now."
