Ramses finds himself in a dire situation; Captured and restrained, beaten and bloody, waiting and wondering if a way of escape will present itself when someone arrives ominously at the door.

"His aches and pains were forgotten in anticipation of what was to come next. The figure that stood in the doorway was not that of an enemy; worse. It was that of his mother."

At one point in the story an acquaintance wonders why the Emersons fall into the same kinds of trouble year after year. Peabody responds by saying that yes, it is much the same old thing, just that the children are taking a more active part. I love it.
