What's the weather like?

Chance of snow.

Step up to the window.

Put it in the drawer.

Here, put it on the scale.

She's porcine.

What are you doing?

The ritual that happens

after you buy the groceries

but before you eat them.

I don't want you

handling a knife right now.

Please, put that down.

I am competent.

What if you cut yourself

and started bleeding

and passed out?

Spilled boiling water

or something?

How come you let me work

in "the kitchen of perils"

before I was pregnant?

Because you're resilient.

Well, are we just gonna

eat takeout for four months?

I can grill things.

How's koala?

She's good.

And mama koala?

I'm good, but my feet hurt.

That's 'cause you shouldn't

be on them right now.

- How was work?

- Yeah, it was.

Too much sun

this time of day.

Need to get some better

curtains in here.

Green ones.


Okay, I'll be right over.




I'll take you anywhere


Nice to see you.

Come in.

Did your dad

pick out that outfit?

He did. You like it?


He's in the pool room.

The one with the pool or...

or with the pool table?

The table.

He calls it the billiards room,

but I don't know.

It's just pool

he plays in there.


Que pasa?

- Hey.

- In the fridge.

Jill got you

your faggoty mineral water.

I didn't know h-2-os

got a sexual orientation.

Where's this guy?

En route.

How'd the transaction go?

Never a problem with cuz.

Yeah, I like that n*gger.

Or is it...

is it "nigga"

with an a at the end,

when you're saying it nice?

Don't think someone like you can

say that word any way polite.

- How's Lauren?

- Good.

When's she dumping

out the kid?

98 days.

You planning on staying

in the delivery room?

Of course.

That's something I wouldn't
