- He does not.

Hoover Fey says his tongue's gonna

hang out his mouth the rest of his life.

And when he dies,

at the funeral they're

gonna put a mask on him.

Do I have to listen to this

while I'm eating?

Let's talk about

something else.

Josie McClellan

moved to New York.

She did not.

I saw her today.

I don't know

how you could.

I heard she got tired of

taking care of her father,

and she told him

to jump in a lake,

and left to get her M.B.A.

In high-fashion design...

at the University

of New York City.

I just saw her at the gas station

in living color.

We had a cup

of java together.

I'm gonna take Lou Selby's

word over yours any day.

Lou Selby's a drunk.

For a guy who's just

lost his umpteenth job,

you sure are handy

with the tongue sword.

- You got canned again?

- Well, he didn't get canned.

He got fired.

That's gotta be a record.

Not only are you

an obnoxious slug,

but you're a freeloading

obnoxious slug.

You should talk.

In your mid-forties,

still living at home.

I'm twenty-four,

and I pay rent.

- So do I.

- You did pay rent.

Dad, you mean you're

cutting my rent?

Hell, no!

You're not paying rent because

you don't have a job or any money.

You're out of school and you live

in this house, you pay rent.

# I wanna stay home #

# I wanna stay home

right here #

# I wanna stay home

today #

Jim! Yo, Jim!

Jim, wake up!

Hey, get up!

Get u-u-up!

# When my day begins ##

You know, getting this job,

restoring your faith and pride in me

is a number-1 priority.

Priority ought to be making

something of yourself.

That's right up there.

When I was your age, I couldn't wait

to get out of my folks' house.

I love living at home.

I don't think this is such

a great place for me to work.

Okay,

say I don't get this job,
