Someone has been soaking things in at daycare:

Cora: (with hands on hips in her PJs) DAD!  You are not listening to my words!  This is NOT a joke.  Do you understand me?  This is not funny, ok?
Ryan: (bewildered) Honey I am listening to you.  What did you want to tell me?
Cora: (pauses) Well ...  nothin really.

A couple of good ones today:

Cora: (talking to Ryan after school - very sternly)  Daddy!  Do you really not understand the words I'm saying to you?  Shape up!

And then later as we were talking:
Cora:  Mom do you wanna marry me?  Here sit down and hold my hands and we'll be married.
Me:  (looking at her and making a funny face)
Cora:  MOM!  That is NOT how to be married!  First we sit down together, then we watch some TV and then we make silly faces.  That's how you be married.  That's how it works.
