When my wife is out of the house, I'll often walk into a room and find Elliot talking to her on his phone.
The phone isn't actually connected to anything, but it does have a prerecorded message from her: "Hello, Elliot. I love you."
UPDATE: Just to show you how quickly a heartwarming story can turn sour: Before Elliot went to bed tonight, he said he needed to make a "quick phone call."
When Kelly asked who he was talking to, he said, "Another mommy."
