I should've played Bach.

But you love Paganini.

I fell in love with you

when you played Paganini.

Yeah, well, they didn't.

Why don't you just bring it to the wedding?

I'll get you a ticket.

Buddy, I can't. I'm sorry.

I told you, I just can't, okay?

I will tell her, Buds. Bye.

Tell her what?

Buddy wants me to come home.

He got us a present.

He says he can't bring it to the wedding.

That's so cute.

He never asks for anything.

- He's your brother.

- Yeah, I know that.

It's like a different planet back there,

you know?

And how do you know?

You haven't been back for ages.


Yeah, it's been eight years.

You wanna come with me?

Can you please just go meet your brother

so I can finish fixing this place up?

No. Not a chance.


You look good.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

- Yeah...

- No. Really, you look good.

I got a haircut.

Yeah? Yeah, I can see that.

That's Eric. That's Eric.

He's my bestest friend.


Hey, Jakey.

Like Pop had Joe, I have Eric.

Welcome home, kid.

Well, let's go.

- Hey, Jake, will you tell me...

- What?

Where'd it go?

Yeah, will you tell me

how this sounds real fast?

- Yeah, yeah. Sure.

- Listen.

Ladies and gentlemen, I won't take long.

It's the best day of my life.

What is it?

It's a speech, dummy.

- For your wedding. It's a wedding speech.

- Of course.

Of course, it's a wedding speech, yeah.

- Well, is it good?

- Yeah, well, let me hear the rest of it.

That's all I got so far.

It's only seven seconds.

What am I gonna do, Jakey?

Why don't you tell 'em a story?

Like, about when we were kids?

A lot of good stories

from when we were kids.

Yeah, you know, I know!

You know, I'll tell them

about the time that I jumped in the pool

and I broke your Lincoln Log house

- and you were crying like a little girl.
