What am I installing?

A new 85 inch, 4K 3D TV.

...PlayStation 4, 7.1

surround sound speakers.

Really? If you guys sell it,

we probably bought it.

Is it your birthday?

No, my parents are getting divorced.

Oh, so it's like 10 birthdays.

Yeah! My dad cheated on my mom with

his 19 year old Pilates instructor.

Her name is "Sinnamon", with an "S"...

...which tells you all you really need

to know about her.

I'd like to hear a little more.

You got any pictures?

I'm kidding.

I'm sorry to hear that.

My mom kinda hates him right now, and...

...she said she's gonna to invent a "Slut

Seeking Missile" to take out "Sinnamon".

Okay Matt, you don't need to tell the

nice installer man our whole life.


I'm sorry, woe what?

No, just you... "woe".

Me, woe.

I don't even know what that means.

I mean, just when your son told me...

...that your husband left you

for a 19 year old...

...I guess I thought of you were gonna

be like one of those...

...hot women when we first met

in high school...

...but then let herself go and got a

pot belly and turkey neck with a...

...with a hairy chin."

But, clearly that's not the case.


more like "Woe I should

have brushed my teeth...

...before I left my house this morning".

Or studio apartment if

we're getting real here.

Did you really not brush

your teeth this morning?

No, I did.

I guess I should just start

setting this stuff up right now.

Go get'em.

Colonel Devereux.

You need to see this, sir.

We're under attack.

What the hell is those things?

So, you a gamer?


I played when I was your age.

Were you any good?

It was pretty good

at some of the classic games.

Classics like

Halo and Call of Duty?

No. The real classics.

Defender, Pac-Man, Asteroids.
