Ari (seeing a woman at the mall trying on a wedding dress): Look at she. She so pretty. She look like you Mommy. Let's wait here awhile.
Ari (overheard while playing with his dad): Oh, you're going to be in trouble.

Ari (on the chocolates he got me for Valentine's Day): Mommy! Mommy! You have to find your present! I hid it in the bathtub! Mommy, you have to find it!
Mommy: I need a clue.
