I got the promotion.

And we're movin' on

up To the east side


They'll be movin' on up To

that apartment in the sky.

- I'm gonna hurt him.

- Hey. Hey, Jimmy. Jimmy, stop.

- Man-Man, you ain't got to do this.

- Hey...

- Okay, then. All right.

- Beat it.

Congratulations. I'm

really proud of you.


But I thought we was

gonna start a family.

We will, baby.

You know, with this promotion,

everything's on track now.

In a couple of years I'll be senior V.P.,

and I can take time off to have a child.

A couple of years? I

don't wanna wait years.

Darryl, you know, having a

baby changes everything.

Hey, I'm willing to

do whatever it takes.

So no more late-night

poker with the guys.


No more...

afternoon quickies.

Stop right there. We haven't

had a afternoon quickie...

since your father moved in.

That is not fair. My dad is getting old.

Sometimes he forgets things.

I don't feel comfortable

with him living by himself.

What about Whispering Glen?

That place looked like a country

club inside the brochure.

They got Viagra

vending machines.

You listen to me.

Until he is a danger to himself

or others, he is staying with us.


can we celebrate?

Celebration, come on We

gonna celebrate tonight.

Come on, come on, let's celebrate

Let's not have a fight.

And I'm not talking tonight.

Remix! Now just you ladies.

Celebrate, celebrate

Celebrate, celebrate.

Hey, oblivious.

What are you doing?

Getting ready to rob a

iewelry store, Calvin.

I'm going straight Jesse James.

Percy, put the gun away. Guns is

how you wind up back in prison.

I'm telling you, I ain't going back to jail.

You understand?

Now put the gun away.

Why you gotta keep

hitting me, Cal?

Sometimes I gotta slap some

sense into you, Percy.

Come on. Give me a hand.
