What can I say? My subcontractor

has been slacking off.

l want to make this up to you.

l have a foolproof method

that will guarantee

you ace your History final.

But if you'd rather see

your grades crash and burn.

lt's up to you.

No cost?

Of course there's no cost

for the answers.

l couldn't do that to you.

You guys are my buds.

However, there is a nominal fee

for the beeper rental.

Wilkinson residence.

l'm sorry,

he can't come to the phone right now.

He's busy accessorising.

Jake, it's your dad.

See you.

How are things at the office?

-We're all off for the holidays.

l sent everybody home at noon.

Great. Getting ready for ski season?

Yeah, I just got my bindings fixed.

Look, l'm calling to find out

about you.

Are you still planning

to come home for Christmas?

l'd like to but I gotta stay on

campus and finish up that lab work...

Cos I got a call from my

travel agent.

He says the ticket I sent you was

cashed in for two to Cabo San Lucas.

He says somebody

sabotaged his computer file.

What kind of a world

are we living in?

Is the convenience of technology

worth the loss to our privacy?

Who would do such a thing?

Where will it end?

l agreed to let you go off

to school in California.

But you haven't been home

for the holidays since Mom died.

l think it's time

that we become a family again.

lf you were 18, where would you

rather be for Christmas?

At home with your family

or in Cabo

on the beach with a beautiful girl?

Allie's parents say she is coming

home like always.

l just really want you home, son.

Me too.

-As does Carol.


-And Tracey, we all want you home.

Well, I just don't think

l can get there.

Not even if l... give you the Porsche?

Excuse me?

The Porsche?

The 195 Porsche?

The same one we rebuilt by hand
