- Bag's on the table.

- Ah!

Good. Of course you did,

of course you did.

Because you... are mature.

You're an adult.

What are you? You're, like...

you're, like, 30 or 35, 36.

I'm 9.

I know, I was joking. A joke.

Hey, I was going to wait

until your mom got here,

but no time like the present.

OK, well, that is for you.

Just to say thank you

for being such a good hostess.

Did you want crust or no crust?

I always do no crust.

I'm going to do no crust.


I heard that everyone

is wearing those now.

And why would I want to

be like everyone else?

Oh... that's right.

Your mom told me that you were

a bit of a trailblazer. No!

Hey. Emily!

No. No, no. Everything's great.

Right? Huh?

No, we're having

a wonderful time.

Don't worry about it. Huh?

What? Your dad?

When? No, no, no, no.

You said he was never on time.

Livvie. Calling Livvie.

Out the from'

in T minus 10 seconds.

Copy, Grandad.

Be right out. Over.

- Got to go!

- He's here. What do I do?

- Ah, there's my Livvie.

- Grandad, flip me over!

Hang on, watch me back.

I can't flip you over anymore.

You're too big.

You'll just pull me over.

That's because you're

such a great big giant.

Grandad, you're not supposed

to bring Oddball into town!

Oh, shoo!

Shoo! Get away! Go!

I see you in there.

Get out here now!

If you don't, I'm gonna

come in there and drag you out.

Oh, no.

Come on,

you dopey thing. Get out here!

Not the tie!

What have you got there? Hey?

Come on, show me

what you've got.

Oh, yeah, he's got

a bit of fight, don't you?

What is it?

Where did you get that?

- Hi.

- Hey. Where have you been?

- Uh...

- Hi, Mum!

Hi. I'm so sorry.

Our first morning together

has just turned into a mess.

Oh, that's OK.

Hey, I like your mess.

- Let's go.

- Go... Wait, go? Now?
