Dennis. Yeah, Dennis.

# Do you run away? #

You like, uh, to have some sort

of drink with me?

Oh, what the hell. Let's...

Ow, shit!


- Hah!

- Aah!

No. Oh, you got me!

- Hi.

- Hi.

- We're playing

hobbits and orcs.

- Mm-hmm.

Guess who's an orc?

Honey, would you mind, uh...

This kind of smarts. Can you?

Oh, yeah. Thank you.

I'm not finished

with you, Whit!

Yeah, one sec.

Uh, I thought his dad

was picking him up.

- What happened?

- Oh, what happened?

Dennis happened.

Mmm. Well, on the bright side...

- Hmm?

- You look astonishingly

beautiful today.

- Whit!

- Really.

Where have you been?


- I was...

- Daddy!

Hey, snot-face!

Oh, please, don't call him that.


He is a snot-face, isn't he?

You are a snot-face,

aren't you? Huh?



Jake, that's disgusting.

Jake, that's disgusting.

Go on.

- Toilet first.

- Mom!

Go on. Grab your jacket.

You were supposed to be here

an hour ago, Dennis.

Yeah, there was a bit

of a mix-up with the...

with the tickets, so...

Hey, you look really nice.

Did I get you that necklace?

No. It was a...

just a present

from someone... else.

- Who?

- Uh, me, actually.

Oh, yeah.


It belonged to my grandmother.



Dennis, this is

my good friend, Whit.

Whit, this is my...

Jake's dad, Dennis.

How you doin'?

Good, yeah.

You have soft hands.

Do you moisturize?

I do, actually.

Well, it's very nice

to meet you.

It's nice to finally put a face

to the name.

I'd have probably thought

you'd have...

you would have seen

one of our photos.

Oh, there aren't any.

- Hmm.

- Ready?

Yes. Let's go.

- Have fun.

- Yeah.

Dennis, you do have

the tickets, right?

Libby, credit me

with some intelligence.


Does anybody have any tickets?

Mate, my daughter's

not very well.
