Ethan loves these.

He loves these.

I think you will too.

Watch it!

Hey, buddy. That's a boy.

Good boy!

There. Oh, my God, he took it.

Thank God, I am on I-70

near Chambers Road.

And this is a life-and-death


Never mind. We're cool.

Mom, look.

We're just not allowed

to deal with animals of an unknown threat.

I mean, this...

- Durley.

- Yeah?

- We gotta go.

- What do you mean?

I talked to Animal Control.

They'll be here sometime

in the next two hours.

Two hours!

That's all you're gonna do for us?

Well, no, in this circumstance,

we are authorized to

put the animal down.

I think you'd better go.

I'm sorry, folks.

Them's the rules.

Good luck.

Do you think we

can move him?

You mean, touch him?

This is one of those rare occasions

when I wish I had a man I could call.

Me too.

Honey, there really are

a lot of great men out there.

You have to make some effort.

Mom, let's keep our eye on the ball.

How are we supposed to move him?

Where is it?

Yeah. Yeah.


Here is a giraffe.

What kind of assholes left you

out here all alone, huh?

Silk. Good idea.

Good boy. Good boy.

Now, nobody's gonna hurt you.

Get ready for him to go crazy.

Just get ready. Here we go.

There you go. Okay.

Okay. There you go.

Now, here we go. Okay.

Come on. Come on, darling.

- Come on, boy.

- Come on.

- Take a right.

- Look! No broken bones!

Look at that! Yeah.

It's gonna be so warm in there.

Now, on the count of three,

we're gonna throw this shirt over his head

and lift him in, okay?

Don't you want to use

one of Dad's suits to protect the seat?

Pay attention.



One, two...



Thank you.

Hello, I'm Dr. Bhoola.

So, Mrs. Winter, you saved this dog's life?

I don't know about that.

Not many people would have stopped
