- No.

- How long's he in town?

- He's leaving Friday.

- We can't cancel.

- It's okay.

- Mary Lou can handle it.

- She's not who he expects to see.

You're the point person.

You told me you'd handle it.

I did, but my child wasn't sick

when I promised you...

Not my fault you can't find a sitter.

Okay, I can come in for one hour.

That is it.

If Alex beeps me, I'm gone

and you can fire me.


Charlie, you're making me choose

between making a house payment...

...and taking care of my sick child

and I don't appreciate it.


You tell Charlie I'm desperately ill?

Thank you, Alex.

Yes, he knows you're sick.

What about the Family Leave Act?

I just have to go in...

...sign some papers and show my face.

I'll be gone an hour at the very most.

I called Mrs. Hess and...

You called Mrs. Hess?

She knows I'll be alone?

She said if anything comes up,

she'll be right over.

- She wasn't happy about it...

- She'll come over and make me smoke.

- Don't be ridiculous.

- What if there's a tornado?

Not in winter.

- Social unrest?

- I don't think so.

Boredom? It's deadly in old folks.

Goodbye, sweetie.

What about crooks?

That's not a problem during the day.

Why not?

No one's home during the day.

I'm 8 and I figured that out.

Couldn't a grown-up crook

figure it out too?

This is a very safe neighborhood.

There's only one road in and out.

The doors'll be locked,

you have my numbers.

- I'll be home soon.

- But, Mom!

What about dragons, giant spiders,

mummies, the living dead...

...and other figments

of my imagination?

Alex, I can't help you there.

Only you can control your imagination.

That's a scary thought.

That's weird.

Oh, my God.


- I saw a burglar!

- Are you by yourself?

My mom had to leave.

I have the chickenpox.
