Matilda and her use of Libraries, Part 3

Harry Wormwood: Are you in this family? Dinner timne is family time. What is this trash you're reading?
Matilda: It's not trash, Daddy, it's lovely. It's called "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville.
Harry Wormwood: Moby what? This is Filth! Trash!
Matilda: It's not mine! It's a library book!
Harry Wormwood: I'm fed up with all this reading! You're a Wormwood, you start acting like one! Now sit up and look at the TV.
