but can I have

another cookie?

Of course.


Can you do me

a huge favor, babe,

and come home at your lunch--

Why is she having

a cookie?

It's a special occasion.

Oh, what's

the special occasion?

-It's my--

-No, no, no, no.

Don't say anything.

Guess, Mom.


Okay, wait.

Let me see.

Could it be...

your talent show?

Yes! The talent show.

'Cause we celebrate

important milestones

in this house,

'cause that's what we do.

Okay, do you want

a waffle, Salome?

No, Dad's gonna fix me

some apeshit.


Did she just

say "apeshit"?

I think

she heard that at school.

Anyways, my parents

are coming in today,

and I need you to come home

and let them in.

The punisher is coming?

Yes! I told you that.

And they're coming

at noon.

Which reminds me.

Can you go pick up

Salome's new guitar?

She's gonna need it

for the show tonight. Okay?

And please...

Yeah, yeah, I'll do it.

Don't lose it.

I won't lose it.

Okay, great.

I gotta go. I'm late.

I love you.

I love you.


And don't forget my parents.

I won't forget.

Whoa! Didn't you

change his diaper?

I think I forgot.

I don't know how.

He smells like

a porta potty.


(no audible dialogue)


We're gonna be late.

Come on, Dad!

Hey, what do you think

of your playhouse?

My playhouse?

It's kinda boring.

Really? That sucks.

It's supposed to be fun.

It's a little fun.

Ah, nah, it sucks.

I'm a shitty carpenter.

I don't know

what to sing tonight, Daddy.

I know,

but I haven't figured out--

You haven't decided?


What do you

wanna sing?

I don't know.

Maybe, like,

the Dead Kennedys.


Dead Kennedys?

That would be funny,

but there's, like,

a bunch of families

and kids and stuff.

Oh, yeah.

But-- I don't know.

Sing whatever you want.
