- Mommy did!

- Mommy did!

Why did she tell you to wake me up?

Because she wants me

to tickle you again?

Travis, you son of a bitch,

get off that bike!

Cathy, what are you doing?

Nothing, Mom.

Hey, get that thing

off the sidewalk, Travis!

Here you go. Coming in. There you go.

You want butter on that?

- Can I have some French toast?

- Sure.

I can have some?

I got some for you right here.

No, I gotta go.

I gotta get the truck running.

Wait a sec. Let me talk to you

for a second, please.

What...? The bank's gonna

call again today.

- So?

- So, what should I tell them?

Do we have to talk about that

right now?

No, you know what? We can wait

till they throw us out of our house.

Hey, Mike!


What's the matter?

You and Katie again?

Hey, Mike, want a doughnut?

Make you feel better.

About time we got yours

back on the road, don't you think?

Unless you got some secret plan

to let it rust and sell it for scrap.

We'll start tonight.

What do you think?

I gotta show you something.

- What's this?

- This is our future.

MT Motors.

Serving all of Navajo County.

Harleys, Nortons, Yamahas,

you name it.

We'll do commercials like the guys

in Phoenix.

"MT Motors. Our prices are so great,

our show room

is almost always empty."

Get it? Empty. M-T. Motors.

Empty. What do you think?

I think we better just concentrate

on finishing the contract.

The Forest Service

won't extend the deadline.

Mike, don't worry. This is the deal.

Look, Travis, my mortgage

is on the line.

I gotta worry. I got no choice, man.

We'll get it done or we won't.

Hey, where you going?

Love awaits me.

Look, it's Uncle Travis.

- Hi, Uncle Travis.

- God. Travis, can't you use the door?

- No.

- Go...

- Morning.

- Good morning.

Breakfast in bed.

Thank you.
