Bob: you see the pictures of the foxes again?, Yes you do.
Peggy: (while Bob speaks, Peggy relaxes her arm and shows that all the fingers of her left hand are outstretched but separated)
Bob: that’s what they are, they’re foxes.
Peggy: (pointing now at something else, up high in the two-story room, she points with two fingers of her right hand, extended and joined, which is shown clearly as she rotates and brings her hand down into a side view.)
Peggy: (her attention turns again to the Fox family picture on the wall, and crawling towards the wall she says repeatedly) that… That… That.
Bob: yes, there are many pictures on the wall, sweetie. That’s right.
Peggy: that!
Bob: that is a Fox, mommy and baby Fox, indeed.… Peggy, Peggy, will you come back and play with these toys?
Peggy: (pointing again at the pictures on the wall)
Bob: you see the pictures of the foxes again, come on back, Peg, (calling) Peggy, Peggy.
Peggy: (placing her hand on the top of her head, a familiar gesture, explained other places)
Bob: Hooray for Peggy!
Peggy: (scrouching right on her bottom, looking up) that!
Bob: (shifting camera focus to the Fox portrait on the wall) that’s another Fox up there? Yes, my goodness.
Peggy: (continuing to point with the two fingers of her right hand extended and joined) that!
Bob: that’s a Fox all right. And up higher we have other things.

Peggy: (she whacks the cylinder, attentively watching it as it rolls across the floor, toward the fireplace)
Peggy: (crawling over towards Bob)
Bob: Uh-oh. What are you doing, Peg? (As she crawls over, past Bob to the toy chest)
