A Weekend with the Family

Synopsis: A young attorney looks to gain a position at a prestigious law firm while secretly dating his boss' daughter, who he's hoping to marry; but when his loving girlfriend decides to arrange a surprise family weekend get-together, his plans blow up in his face, especially with the arrival of his ghetto-fied family, the Stankershets. Travis and Courtney portray love interests who struggle to hold on to their relationship all while their two families wage war in an explosion of hilarity. It's the far east against the deep south; strict, traditional, Korean customs versus a backwards, country way of life. In the end, Travis must find a way to make the two families peacefully co-exist long enough for him to propose to the woman he loves.

Sorry, Jesus.

[Rosie] Thank you, that's good.

Your mother raised you well.

At least you got a lil' bit of manners.

I'll make you feel real good,

right about now.

Talking smart to me,

calling Jesus' name in vain,

I'm so sick of these people,

I don't know what to do,

Look at his hair. What's...

Now, he'll be out for ten minutes,

so you need to spill it.

Travis is gonna propose.

How do you know?

I found the ring.

You nosy-ass heifer.

Girl, congratulations!

Court, this is exciting.

Oh, my God! I'm just gonna be an amazing

maid of honor, I know I'm gonna be it.

'Cause we gonna be turnin' it up.

Girl, I got this solo move,

I wanna turn it up.

[in a sing-song voice] Turn it up. What!

I'm doin' it, I'm turnin' it up,

but you ain't turnin' it up.

Ain't you excited?

Of course, I am.

Travis is amazing.

I couldn't see myself

being with anybody else.

Okay, so then, what's the problem?

Travis hasn't met my family yet.

My family is very strict,

very traditional, and very Korean.

Okay, so then why hasn't he met them?

I think Travis is a little insecure

about my father.

So, I assume that you met his family.

That's another thing.


-I haven't met them yet either.


I've talked to his mom on the phone,

but I've never met them face to face.

What if they don't like me in person?

What if they don't think I fit in?

Now, come on,

you know that's an impossibility.

You know that.

I just want us to be

one big, happy family,

-You know?

-I do.

And I know how important it is to Travis

for my dad to like him.

Okay, so then, what are you gonna do?


Now, prayer's very good.

Yeah, I'll be praying with you,

but I'll be praying for us to turn it up!

Girl, 'cause I got these new moves...


-All right.

-[Rosie] Wake up.
