making his case

Jack: Can I have some more jelly beans?
Me: No, Jack, you've already had enough.
Jack: But I want some more jelly beans!
Me: I'm sure you do. But you already had some this afternoon and you just had some Skittles. You are not having any more candy tonight.
Jack: But jelly beans aren't candy!
Me: Oh? Well, what are they?
Jack: (pause) Dinner!
