My, how time flies.

Boy, has this been a wonderful day.

First I get pains in the stomach.

When I get home,

I find my father's been fired.

Well, eat your soup before it gets cold.

- I don't feel like soup!

- What's wrong with it?

- Not enough salt?

- Not enough salt. Not enough anything.

- If it rains tomorrow, I'll go nuts.

- Who said anything about rain?

That's all we need now... for it to rain

and for me to catch pneumonia.

How can you get pneumonia?

You haven't even got a cold.

Pneumonia happens to be

an occupational disease with sign painters.

You stand on a ladder,

painting names on store windows.

It starts raining, you get wet.

Along comes a breeze... [Sneezes]

There. See what I mean? Pneumonia.

Pneumonia! Just because

you sneeze once or...

What's wrong with you? Cramps?

Or don't you like my soup either?

I assure you my action has nothing

to do with the quality of your food.

I'm just not hungry.

So if you'll excuse me...

Look, if certain people around here

don't like the way I cook...

just let them say so.

After all, I would like to remind you

that I was not raised to be a cook.

I happen to be a singer,

in case you've forgotten.

Before I married your son,

I never even had my hands in dishwater.

Mother, nobody's talking

about your cooking.

No, but they're thinking about it.

The first thing you know, somebody will

remind me that I came from Brooklyn.

But first I would like to remind them...

that some of the finest people

in the world have come from Brooklyn.

Yes, and while we're on the subject,

I would like to say...

that there is no telling

how far I might have gone...

- if I hadn't thrown away

my career for the...

- #[Piccolo]

Oh, for goodness' sake.

Now look what's happened.

- Poor Grandpa.
