My band never decided

until the last second.

Daddy, what do you do?

(chuckles) What do I do?

What does that mean?

Well, it's just because

it's career day,

and we're supposed to talk

about our parents' careers.


I don't know. Just say

I'm in a band or something.

But you're not in a band.

Yes, I am.

We're just taking

a temporary hiatus.

What's a temporary hiatus?

Ah. It's a fancy way

of saying

we're taking a break.


I don't know.

Why don't you

just talk about Mom,

how she's a public defender

and all that

important stuff?


Yeah, you don't have

to mention me.

Come on. Let's do it.

(school bell ringing)

Get to school.

Have fun.

Hey, Dean!

Arrest that man!

Take him in

for questioning.

I'm trying to get him

to join Dad's Group.

I don't think it's working.

Is he being a pussy?

A little bit.

Come on. Don't be

a pussy, pussy guy.

(chuckles) Okay.

Hey, we were just joking.

We don't think you're a pussy.

-I don't even know

how that got started.

-I was just trying to be funny.

I'm sorry.

You guys

are pretty weird, man.

Dad's Group.

We need somebody cool

like you.

Honestly, if you think I'm cool,

then your Dad's Group

is kind of hurting.


We're just messing

with you.

There he goes.

(doorknob rattling)


Hey, Perry.

Got it for you.

Salome's first guitar.

This is

what my wife picked out?

Yeah. What do you think?

Why is there

a dinosaur on it?

(chuckles) I don't know.

I think it's a decal.

It probably comes off.


Well, it sounds all right,

I guess.

Oh, can I tell you


I have to tell somebody.

What happened?

Mm. I'm dating

this French chick.

Ingrid is her name.


Oh, smokin' hot.


she invites me to Paris

for a dinner party.
