I don't know.

How you doing, Granddad?

You still hitting those books, I see.

Yes, sir.

Yes, he got six A's and one B.

The B was in gym.

When your Uncle Evan gets here,

he can help you out with that.

Grandpa, can I go inside

and get some cookies?

Of course you can!

Cameron! Just one. Just one!

I want some too!

It'll be fine. Just, come on.


He's always working.

Give me a second.


Hey! Hey! Hey! Pop!

Man, don't do that.


How are you, Pop?

I'm a little tired, but a

lot better seeing you all.

Oh, my God! ls that...

Christian, you promised.

Family time.

No, no. That's what this will...

That's what this is.

He's here so that I won't have

to be on the phone as much.

Which gives me more time for family.

Oh, my God.

Andy Brooks.

Pleasure to meet you, sir.

He's my campaign manager, Pop.

Boy, you have raised a very

promising, young, future congressman

and his beautiful wife,

who you didn't raise.

You raised him. He's your son.

Hope that doesn't come

as a surprise to you.

I didn't know you're

campaigning over the holidays.

These cookies are amazing!

Give me that.

Hey, Cameron. Take

your aunt's luggage in. There.

That's a lot of luggage.

Probably half of them are wigs.

Hey, and take yours in.

We're staying here?



Hold on, son. We're not staying here.

We're staying at a hotel.

We are staying at the hotel?

I thought we were. I assumed.

Let me talk.



Pop, we got a hotel room because

we didn't wanna be a bother.

Family is never a bother.

We're all going

to stay right here.

The kids can sleep in

the bunk beds in the basement.

Aw! Thanks, Pop.

Yeah. Okay.

This is great.

Sounds good to me.

Sounds good to you?

Really, Brooks?

You know what?

I'm gonna like that hotel.
