Summary

Amid a commotion in the Bennett household, Cody screams, “It’s in the corner!” Astor pleads, “Don’t hurt it!” Rita insists, “Dexter, be careful!” Gail demands, “Use a broom; it might have rabies,” and hands Dexter a broom. Cody yells, “It’s right there! Get it!”

The cause of the excitement is revealed to be an armadillo inside the house. Within a couple of minutes, Dexter easily sweeps it outside. The children shout happily, “Yay! Got it!” and clap their hands. Rita kisses Dexter and proclaims, “My hero.” Turning to Cody and Astor, Rita says, “Alright, kids, show’s over. Let’s get dressed for school.” Dexter is left alone with Gail.

Gail gives Dexter a brief look of disapproval. He smiles at her and asks, “So, any armadillos in Michigan?” She responds with a curt, “No.” Dexter jokes, “We didn’t use to have any in Florida. Now it’s like an invasion -- Armadillos Attack!” Gail glares at him and states, “You think you’re charming, don’t you? That probably works for you most of the time.” They go on to have an unpleasant conversation when she brings up the Narcotics Anonymous leaflets she had found.
