my best nurse up there with me.

- Your first baby?

- So exciting.

Yeah, I know, isn't it?

Do you know what you're having yet?

- No.

- No?

Do you want to know

or are you going to wait for a surprise?

- We want to know.

- You want to know. Yeah.

- Having the baby is surprise enough.

- Yes.

Let's see... It's a girl.

Is that good news?

- It's great news.

- Oh, good.

...but it should

clear up by the afternoon.

This not gonna interfere

with your July Fourth plans...

...clear skies for the

fireworks tomorrow night.

And remember to dress warm, folks...


Excuse me.

OK, we have one more song left.

My Country, 'Tis of Thee.

It will be acapella.

What's wrong?

- You ready, ladies and gentlemen?

- Yes.

- I found Megan.

- ... five, six, ready, sing.

How many times did I tell you

to lock the f*cking gate? Huh?

Hey, I had an idea...

I thought maybe you should

go visit your grandpa today.

- What do you think?

- Yeah!

Did you find Megan?


But I was thinking maybe

she moved out to Hollywood,

and she became a movie dog.

You think? You think she moved out

to Hollywood to be a movie dog?

She had the looks, don't you think?

Maybe that's what happened, huh?

- Pa!

- Hi, sweetheart, how are you?

Here, look what I have for you.

Look at this.

Want me to show you a magic trick?

You coming up?

I can't smoke around the oxygen tank.


- Honey?

- Hi, Gypsy.

Honey, go say bye-bye to Daddy, OK?

You're not gonna

see him until tomorrow.

Watch out for the water. Oh!

OK, go, you're clear!

- Bye, Dad!

- Bye, buddy.

Hey, I love you.

- I love you.

- Have fun, OK, buddy?


You remember what to do

when Pa snores, right?

- Cover his mouth and hold his nose.

- That's my girl.

OK, go have fun.

All right, run to Mama!
