Elbows up. Very good.

This is not algebra.

Thank you.

You're the best.

All right, chins up.

Chins up. Engaging our core.

Very nice.

Kenny, what the heck

was that?


Come on, you guys.

Chins up. Elbows up.


You like dancing,



[Laughs sportingly]


Nicely done, man.


What you got going

for Thanksgiving?

Don't know.

Probably going to

a friend of my mom's. You?


got some relatives in town.

Old man's side

of the family.

You know,

cousins and stuff.

Got any plans after?

Well, what you got?

A girl from school.

She's got a friend

if you wanna kick it.


Yeah, I do.

Hey, by the way,

I just got off the phone

with the promoters.

A scout's gonna come

see you fight next week.


A scout from

the ufc.


You win next week,

your next fight could

be in the big show.

[Chuckles ruefully]

Yeah, no pressure.

Ufc, kid!

I'll call you about tomorrow.

Ooh! it looks so good.

[Chuckles fondly]

You're something else, mom.


You do this every year.

It's not even Thanksgiving yet.


Show me where it says

i have to wait

until after Thanksgiving.


speaking of which,

'think I can get you

to make something to bring?


Fine, I'll make it myself.


Okay, on one condition.

Um, I need the car.

I'm taking a girl out

tomorrow night.

On Thanksgiving?

After we eat.

Oh. well, who is she?

A girl from school.

Does she have a name?

Does it matter?

Well, where are you taking her?

You want the car or not?

Do you want me

to make something or not?

[Groans in disgust]



By the way,

a scout from the ufc

is coming to see me fight.

And what does that mean?

It means I might have

a future in fighting.

What about the studio?

I wouldn't call

owning a dance studio

much of a future.

At least not for me.

[Clears throat]

It may not seem like

much of an achievement to you,

or even the rest of the world,

but I love what I do.

I'm happy teaching.

Well, good for you.

You know maybe it wasn't

part of the grand plan

that I had in store for myself,

but everything happens

for a reason, Blake.

Remember that.

And you know what...

I wouldn't trade my life

for anything in the world.


[Car locks beep]


I'm sorry.

[Turns on radio]

[Christmas music plays]

Oh yeah. Uh-huh.

Jingle bells

jingle bells

jingle all the way

oh, what fun

it is too ride--

You're not funny.

In a one-horse

open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells

jingle bells

jingle all the way

oh, what fun

it is to ride

in a one-horse open sleigh


[Rending metal, horn blaring]

Doctor norbury,

paging doctor norbury.

Please report to radiology...

[Sighs groggily]

How-how you feeling?


I'm sorry.

You've been out

for a couple of days.

The, uh...

Hospital got

a hold of me

because they won't

release you

on your own, so...

I-I've made arrangements

for you to come with me.

[Swallows hard]

Who are you?

I'm your father, Blake.

[Gasps in confusion]

[Breathing hard,

choking back tears]

[Cell phone call ringing]



You all done?

He's just getting

his stuff together now.

How long is he staying?

I don't know for how long.

I mean, you know,

as long as he wants, right?

Of course.
