a few isms

Skyler:  "Mom, is the mop that you have a regular mop?"
Me: "Yeah, why?"
Skyler:  "Well, the tv told me that the regular mop doesn't actually clean your floors.  It just pushes the dirt around (she makes a circular motion with her hand for emphasis).    The tv said that if you buy their mop, it will actually clean your floors. "

In Reedo's words:

"gramote patrol" = remote control
"pressing game" = video games (that he has only seen someone else play)
"smoothie bachine" = blender
"special smoothie bachine" = juicer
"up pants" = shorts
"up shirt" = short-sleeved shirt
"rolly stairs" = escalator
"meat!" = bacon

Reed, standing at the (turned off) stove, counting the burners:  "one, two, three, five!  Five smokes!"

That last Reedish reminds me of King Arthur in Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail; "One, Two, Four"!
