- Hey, baby.

- Hey.

You good?

Yeah.

I'm ready.

- Checkmate!

- Oh!

Oh, I... I almost forgot.

You loaned this to me

in like second grade.

Keep it. You can bring it

when you visit.

I asked my mom,

and she said it's way too far.

Hey, Chester, your mom texted!

Hey, sweetie.

So, tell her we're going

to come up

and say goodbye one more time

before tomorrow.

- Okay.

- Okay?

- Bye! Bye, mack!

- Mack:
Bye, Chester.

Gina:
Bye, hon.

Clark:
Bye, Chester!

- Oh! Hey!

- Hey, buddy!

Nathaniel:
Hey,

what's going on, man!

Chester:
How's it going?

Mack:
What is up?

Mack:
What up, man?

Ross & daughters!

You guys, I can't take

another goodbye. I can't.

No problem,

because we're kidnapping you.

You guys are

like a little behind in here.

- Dude, we got packers.

- Gina:
Mmm-hmm.

- You got packers?

- Mack:
Packers.

Okay! You really did get

a good job. Congratulations!

Tenure track!

- You making money!

- Nathaniel:
Nice!

Mack:
I'm gonna miss you guys.

Ben:
Miss you too, man.

- To your second book, man!

- I hope so.

- Nathaniel:
Yeah, yeah.

- I have to.

If I don't want to write about

food the rest of my life.

Mack:
Wow!

Ben:
Whoo!

Mack:
Age-defying!

I still don't understand what's

so great about this job, though.

Man, New York is over

if you're a real artist.

She started out, so...

It's stability.

It's health insurance.

- It's retirement.

- Okay.

Plus, we just want to see

what else is out there.

Racism!

That's everywhere.

You racist.

I'm a little racist.

We'll visit every summer.

We can come to the studio too.

But someone else will be in it.

Yeah, but we'll still have

friends in the building.

- Can I get three of these?

- Baker:
Biscotchos?

Yes.

And some Dulce de leche.

- All right.

- And pasta fulla.

Big order?

Yeah, just in need of memories

at this point.

Hi, Clarky!

I was really hoping

I would see you today.

Sorry, again, about the party.

- Oh, don't worry.

- Amir's going too.

I had to see him off, you know.

They are doing so great!

Oh, they're struggling,

like everybody, believe me.

Gina:
I mean,

we bought a house,

and I'm the only one

who's had a chance to see it.

What if they hate it?

Denise:
Hey!

You're taking a risk.

- You are such a strong person!

- Mmm.

It might get nutty,

but you are moving to Rome!

It's an adventure.

Rome.

Rome, Washington.

Gina:
You know, we're so close

to aunt Vizey and uncle Joe now.

And you haven't seen your

cousin, William, for years.

I... I bet he wants

to see you.

Yeah, to make fun of me.

He called me a "Blerd."

What?

He's an honor student too.

Uh... this is huge.

Let's look around!

Let's see stuff.

Whoa, we could play

Nerf in here!

Yeah, I know. We can have

like a whole like...

Was gonna say ping-pong table,

but that might be a bit crazy.

That smell...

Yeah, it smells like g...

Green, right? Like trees.

Clark, do you want to see

your room?

Okay!

Behold! This is your room!

- It's nice, right?

- Yeah.

And listen.

It's so quiet.

And this is our room, I think.

There's a bathroom!

- We have our own bathroom!

- Gina:
Uh-huh!

It's amazing, right?

There's like bathrooms

everywhere.

Mack:
There's another closet

right there.

Gina:
Do you like it?

I like it.

Thank you.

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

- Very nice!

- Yeah, right? We got a car!

I guess we'll be living off

big mart for a while.

What's this?

I kind of put off telling you,

but the gas range is broken.

- What?

- But they said they'd fix it.

They promised soon.

Oh, but I need to cook

for my article.

I know, I'm sorry, but
