so... that's a lifetime

for a little kid.

Turn over?

Seems to, battery is shot

to hell, though.

Yeah, that's what sitting on its

ass for a year and change will do.

Well, you don't look so bad.

So Alma hasn't walked out

on you yet, how come?

Well... actually,

we're doing pretty well.

Got engaged.

About a month ago. I was gonna tell you,

but I figured you'd be home soon enough.

She's pregnant.

Sounds familiar.

We're not telling anybody yet.


Thank you.

You can follow me,

I'll try not to lose you.

More chicken.


What's the magic word?

Please, please, please.

Here you go, sweetie.

Careful, it's hot.

Wow, a garage and everything.

You're really moving up.

He knows I'm coming, right?

Yeah, of course, he knows.

Hey, there, kiddo.

Guess who I brought home?

It is nice to meet you...


Nice to meet you, too.

Hey, buddy. It's me,

it's Mommy. I'm back.


We talked on the computer,




go give your... give your mom a hug.

Yeah, she travelled a really

long way just to see you.


Come on, come on.

Hey, what are you doing?

Give her a hug, come on.

It's okay.

We got time.

Sure you don't want to stay for

dinner? Alma cooked up a storm.

Is that all his stuff?

Yeah, well, I figured you'd want us

to keep on a couple things, because... least until you get to

your, you know, your place.

I have my own place.

You know what I mean,

something permanent.

He's not coming back to live

with you, Richard.

Listen, I know what we agreed,

I know what we said.

I'm saying that he's

doing real well here.

And I'm saying

he's coming home with me.

And then we'll see each other

on the weekends, okay?

You ready?


Honey, you don't want to make

your mom sad, do you?
