Imperative not Interrogative

This morning, Nate & M.E. got into it (o.k., not just this morning.) Anyway, M.E. comes up with a gash in her heal. What happened?

M.E.: "Nate pushed me into the edge of the cabinet."
Nate: "Because she pressure pointed me on the side of my head and it hurt."
M.E.: "I did that because he wouldn't stop poking me."
Mom: "Did you ask him to stop."
M.E.: "Yes!"
Nate: "No, you yelled at me to stop. Yelling is imperative not interrogative."
