- Hello?

- Come on in.

- Katherine?

- Kat.

Hi. Tim Travers.

My daughter did the decorating.

Phoebe, come on down, sweetheart.

Oh, wow! An old Van Cort.

Oh, yeah. I guess it came with the house.

- Are you into stargazing?

- Actually, this is a nautical telescope.

But it's a lot better

than the one I have at home.

- I'm going to take astronomy at college.

- Yeah? What college?

Yale. I start second semester.

Yale, huh? Me, too. Class of '79.

And this beautiful redhead is Phoebe.

Phoebe, this is Kat.

Hi, Phoebe.

How old are you, Phoebe?

- Come on. You know how old you are.

- Six.

Four. Forgive her. She's had a hard week.

Her mother left for England yesterday.

What I'm looking for

is someone to help me out.

Not full time, just until my wife gets back.

Excuse me.

OK, come on, sweetheart.


Yeah. Hi, Mrs Farley.

Oh, we got off

to a good start this morning.

Yeah, we knocked down

that wall heading into the...

Glass brick?

Yeah, well...

I like glass brick too, Mrs Farley,

but it doesn't go with your house.


But we've had long talks about staying in

the tradition of the Connecticut house.

- Of course I'll talk to your decorator.

- Do you want to read this with me?

It's time to turn the page, though.

Do you want to turn the page here?

OK. Here we go.

"She was quite the loveliest fairy

in the whole world."

"Her dress was like golden dewdrops,

and there were flowers in her hair."

"And her face was like

the most perfect flower of all."

"She came close to the little rabbit

and kissed him on his velvet nose..."

Well, you certainly

seem to have the touch.

I've been baby-sitting since I was nine.

- I'm nine.

- No, you're not. Do you drive, Kat?


Is there a history of insanity in the family?

They say it skips a generation.
