Note before the quote:
We do not have cable, or dish, or whatever at our house. We do have a TV and a DVD player.
"Frankie's TV changes and you don't even have to put a movie in the thing, just push the buttons on the remote! (he's totally incredulous at this point) We should get one of those."
Of course, Abs and Joe totally agreed. It might be the thing they are most looking forward to about Alabama--staying at a place that has a TV that changes when you push the buttons on the remote.
