Allison: Mom, Dad, Angy today I stuttered while I was talking to Cortney. It felt weird because I've never done it before. I kind of felt embarrassed. Can you do something about it for me?
Mom, Dad, Angy: Ok, let's take you to the UNI Speech and Hearing Clinic.

Allison: Ok, good bye!
Karen, Susie: Good bye!!
