Dr. O'Corr, it says here

you got a 5:
30 flight out of Newark,

but you want to stop off

at St. Vincent's first, right ?

- That's right.

- Lewis has been working--

- That's gonna be tight.

- There's a $50 tip in it

for you if you make it.

Then again, miracles do happen.

Right, Doc ?

[ Horn Honking ]

This sucks. I wanna go back

and skate at Rockefeller Center.

Hey, how about somebody else

does something they enjoy ?

You wanna visit old school friends,

leave me out of it.

A family vacation is about

staying with the family.

Let's not talk about

staying anywhere, okay ?

[ Alarm Beeps ]

- Hey, asshole !

- Hey !

- What do you want ?

What do you want ?

- Hold still !

- No, not that, please !

- Shut up !

I got it !

Come on. Let's go !

Come on !

Come on !

[ Tires Squealing ]

Good afternoon.

Thirty-six channels and nothing's on.

Norman, one of these days you're

gonna surprise me with a new line.

[ Tires Squealing ]

Hey !

What ?

"Stop now ! You are being

tracked by Electroguard."

- What the hell is Electroguard ?

- [ Siren Wailing ]

[ Siren Wailing ]

[ Tires Squealing ]

The guy's a goddamn genius.

Right into the tunnel.

I'll call Jersey.

[ Horns Honking ]

"This tunnel was drawn up

by Edward Trammel in 1918...

on a napkin

in a Manhattan tavern.

Work on the tunnel

began in 1921,

employing thousands

of Irish immigrants

nicknamed 'sandhogs.'

The tunnel, which runs

under 24 feet of riverbed

and 72 feet of water--"

Hey, Dad, how many vacations

did you take Linda on ?

Ashley, that's enough !

Honey, listen.

Linda's history.

We're a family again.

That's all that counts.

[ Horn Honking,

Tires Squealing ]

- Aaah !

- Christ !

- [ Beeping ]

- What the hell is that ?

Oh, we got a live one here.
