we'll have fun, though, right?

With our plastic forks.

One shared towel.

All right, all right.

Just don't expect much gourmet

cooking for a while.

And no smoking

in my brand new car.

- Your car?

- My car.

- Your car?

- My car.

You know what?

I am quitting.

And it's starting right now.

- So...

- Excellent!


Come into my lair.

You mean, your raft.

Yes. It's recently inflated.

Oh, my god, I get to...

It feels so weird.

Oh, shit...

- Mack:
What happened?

- What?

I did something wrong.

That was so scary!

Are you okay?

- Come to my lair.

- It's kind of fun.

We're going to sink!


I'm your new neighbor,

Diane Hansen, five down.

Oh, hi! Gina Mcnulty.

I have a little gift for ya.

Aw, thanks.

A little friend in there.

He's so cute!


Biscotti and coffee

is the perfect morning snack.


Oh, good!

Okay, it's all I have, so...

First time I had biscotti

was in Rome, Italy.

Oh! Hey, hon.

This is my son, Clark.

This is our new neighbor, Diane.

Oops. You mean Mrs. Hansen.

- Oh! Of course.

- Hi.

Hi! Nice shirt!

So, y'all are from Seattle,

I hear.

We're from New York City.

- New York City?

- Mmm-hmm.

Oh, my gosh! Why on earth

did you move here?

Well, I, uh, got a job

at the college.

In the school of art.

I'm a photographer.

I thought all the art

was in New York!

I know. Well...

So, Clark, what's your dad

gonna do while you're here?

He's gonna try to write

another novel,

but right now, he's on deadline

from his gastronomica piece.

- Gastronomica?

- Oh, it's um...

It's a food magazine.

He's actually writing

this piece about, uh,

cooking video blogs,

where they cook French food.

Yum! You are so interesting!

I hope you like it here.

Oh, I was just done, honestly.
