Mrs. Van Daan, I have barely spoken a word all evening! And Peter is my friend. If I would like to go talk to him then I will.
Why are you always being rude and a nuisance? Why can't you be more like Margot? And Peter! You are always visiting his room. Why don't you just leave him alone?
I am not always underfoot and I have no wish to try and be like Margot!
You are always underfoot and are constantly talking. Try and be quiet for once, like your sister, Margot. She can really show you how to behave like a proper girl if you would only follow her example.
Anne vs Mrs. Van Daan
Anne is still a child, but she should know not to be so rude all the time.
Setting: The "Secret Annex" Conflict: Anne and Mrs. Van Daan arguing Main Characters Involved: Mrs. Van Daan and Anne
I don't think Anne should stay over too long tonight. You two will be going to bed at a reasonable time from now on.
Mrs. Van Daan tells Mrs. Frank a lot of times on how Anne isn't being brought up right. She gives her opinions about Anne, never caring if she hurts anyone's feelings. She even tries to tell Anne how she should act and behave.
Anne, Peter, I don't like the idea of you two seeing each other. Anne, you are depriving Peter of his sleep too much and you could badly influence him. Why don't you both just stop all this nonsense.
Anne talks a lot and is always the target of Mrs. Van Daan's scoldings. The two get on each other's nerves all the time and they argue a lot. Even when Anne isn't speaking, she always seems to be the target of Mrs. Van Daan's lectures.
Anne had been visiting Peter's room very often for the past few days. Mrs. Van Daan was irritated by this and once, as Peter opened the door to let Anne in, Mrs. Van Daan stopped them. She told Peter she didn't want him staying up so late from now on just because Anne was there.
Because Anne has been visiting Peter a lot, Mrs. Van Daan has become even more suspicious about the two, to Anne's annoyance. She doesn't like the idea of Anne seeing him and tries to discourage Anne by telling her she was bothering Peter. This furthers Anne's hatred for Mrs. Van Daan, but because she goes to Peter, Anne can let off some steam and talk to him, making Mrs. Van Daan and the others more bearable to live with.
