Or whatever, so you

gotta do the gross thing.

And then you get to do the um...

the good thing, I guess.

It's called, "Mother, may I?"

I get it, Ralph, I get it.

What I'm saying is that,

that's not like China.

She's not like that.

She's not a "spring breaker."

No, no, you're right.

No, I'm sure she's th-th-the

one hot girl in a bikini who-

who went to spring break

and spent the whole time

at the library.

Okay, okay.

- Ralph. Ralph!

- I'll see ya, buddy.

Hi, hun.

Hi, Daddy.

How are you?

Oh, thanks for asking.

I'm really good, actually.

Ah, they picked up my show.

Huh! They did?


Dad, that's so great!

What show?

The one about the nurses?


Did you have a good time?

- In Florida?

- Mm-hmm.

- Yeah.

- Good. Good.

Hey, Daddy, could I go back there

I mean, I just wanna see

You mean Florida people?


What about school?

After spring break, you don't

even do anything so, who cares?

It's okay. It's okay

if you say no. I just...

Not a big deal.

Well, I don't wanna just say no,

I'm just trying to vet the situation.

Daddy, it's really okay.

It's not a big deal. I just...

thought about it.

Well, if you-if you wanna go...

Could I take the jet?

The jet?

Yeah, just so I don't

have to go to the airport

and deal with the whole security thing.

- And the line, they're so long, Dad.

- I don't-try to understand, I don't own a jet.

I have a card

where I have time on a jet.

Okay, what about when you just

take off for the day somewhere?

Seems to me like you can use it

whenever you want to.

Okay, will you-look,

we can talk about that, okay?

- Okay. Okay.

- We'll talk about it.

Also, like I said, it really is not
