Penn and Michael are having trouble with today’s topic.

Caller Craig: Thinks the kid should do the therapy – the councillor was doing the right thing to report his parents.
The morality is ripping Penn apart.

Caller Nancy: Protect the Kid – because he’s a minor. This is a form of child abuse. We should watch out for each other.

Caller Andrew: If the parents are abusive – should the government step in?
Penn: “Thanks for calling!” (code for “hang up on him” ignored in this case as Penn was kidding)
Penn has trouble with the government.
Beats the hell out of me. (Andrew hangs up)

Caller Dean: The kid could die in the army at 17 and the government wouldn’t care.
If the kid wants to die… good for him.

Penn is afraid he agrees.
