Levinson 2: Round 10

Last round Brooklyn and Trumpet Levinson were busy keeping up with their surprise second set of twins, Parsley and Rosemary. Meanwhile, older twins Nutmeg and Ginger prepared for college.

Hi, girls!

Rosemary: Hi, mysterious voice. Ha! I finished another chapter.

Parsley: Ugh! Slow down! 

Getting some studying done?

Rosemary: We grow up tonight, so Mom wanted us to work on our skills.

Parsley: She said we'd be too distracted after.

Rosemary: Another one done!

Parsley: Stop it!

Aww, Forester's waiting for the girls to get home.

Happy birthday dear Parsley...

...and Rosemary...

Not bad....

Rosemary: Thannks.

You too, Parsely. Any thoughts on aspirations?

Rosemary: Can't I stay the way I am?

Um, no. You can't have the grow up aspiration after you've grown up.

Rosemary: Well, what's the closest thing to it?

Pleasure, I guess.

Rosemary: Ok, I want pleasure.

Parsley: I want pleasure too, just for a less stupid reason.

Trumpet: I wouldn't have thought you'd choose pleasure. Your skills are already so high, I was sure you'd go with knowledge.

Rosemary: I didn't want to choose anything. I don't see why it's important.

Nice choice for the new outfit.

Parsley: Thanks. I just wish Rosemary hadn't chosen the same thing.

She did?

Parsley: Well, her shirt is pink. But yeah. I told her we're too old to be dressing alike but she didn't listen.

Parsley: Don't you think it's time you ditch the pigtails? And maybe try some makeup...

Rosemary: I like my hair this way. And makeup takes too much time.

Let's make a speech...


Oh, boy. The gypsy's back!

Hmm, Ford Vega. This could work.

Parsley: Haven't I met him before?

Not directly, no. But your family did adopt one of his dogs' puppies.

Now it's Rosemary's turn. I'm kind of surprised Rosemary is interested, actually.

Ugh! Gypsy, he's already matched up with Lemon Halpert!

Rosemary: Oh, that's ok. We'll just be friends.

Brooklyn: Wow, Ford,'re sure hungry there.

Welcome to having teenage daughters, Brooklyn.

Brooklyn: I thought I would escape being eaten out of house and home. I never thought about their boyfriends.

At least Parsley has an easy lifetime want.

This, however, is odd given Rosemary's behavior so far.

So, you really want to have 50 first dates?

Rosemary: Sure! The date with Logan was so much fun. Why wouldn't I want to do that over and over? And the gypsy just picks people for me-I don't have to meet them myself.

I don't think Rosemary understands the concept of dating.

New bedspread?

Parsley: Yeah. I wish I could convince Rosemary to pick a new one too. Mom says we can't redecorate the whole room until we both agree on one theme. The stupid seahorses are so babyish.

Um, why are we making robots?

Brooklyn: Oh, just because.

Well, as long as nobody turns them on. I don't want another broken cleanbot spewing garbage everywhere.

Rosemary: Hi, gypsy! Can I have another date, please?

That stupid gypsy...

Trumpet: Why don't you go ask the gypsy for another date while she's still here.

Rosemary: But I haven't finished this one yet.

Trumpet: Ford is your sister's boyfriend.

Rosemary: Duh. I know that. But I'm just having a date with him.

Again, I don't think Rosemary quite gets the point...

Gypsy: Again?

Rosemary: Uh-huh...

Ok, now we're talking here. Plus this will be easy for me to remember. 

Volvo: I had a really fun time hanging out.

Rosemary: Me too.

Volvo: This may seem too fast but, do you want to be my girlfriend?

Rosemary: Oh! Um, ok, I guess.

So, you both have boyfriends now. 

Rosemary: Uh-huh.

Think you're about ready to head to college?

Rosemary: I guess so.

Alright, let's get those scholarships checked out.

She may be awkward, but she sure is smart...

And you didn't do too badly either, Parsley.

Parsley: Thanks.

And I'm glad you two can still have some fun with each other. But now it's time for me to be on my way. I'll see the two of you at graduation, and everybody else next round.

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: This lot proved why waiting months between houses isn't a good idea. I had no idea what relationships, if any, had already been set up when I called the gypsy, so I was cautious on how far to push the relationships with the twins. (This is why you don't see any pictures of Parsley and Ford having any romantic interactions, though they did fall in love.) I need to get back to writing these things down.

The family seems to be doing well. The twins are both so cute. I understand about needing to write things down. I'm trying to be better at making notes, because I took a ton of time off and am playing catch-up now.
