to town and live with me.

Is this my prescription?

Yes, and something else

that I think you should have.

Oh goodness,

I don't need a gun.

I know.

I don't like them

anymore than you do,

but grandma what else

do you have out here?

I've got Thunder.

Thunder is a cat.

But she's my

sweet Thunder pussy.

Okay grandma, can you

please not say that again?

What do you mean?

You know, if the

city would annex Hillview

you'd have police

and fire out here,

it'd be so much safer.

I thought

you already brought that

up with the City Council?

Well, if I was Mayor I

could make that happen.

Well, don't forget, the

Burkhearts and the Nickels

are right next door.

Grandma, the Burkhearts

can barely walk

and the Nickels can never

remember who you are.

You think that they're

gonna protect you?

You've got a

good heart Amanda.


Over here.



You found it?

Is it under this?

Well I hope so.

Alright, here we go.

You can do it.

Oh wow.


Got it?


Look at her.

Grandma what's this?

I think that's part of

my old sewing machine.

Oh goodness.

I don't even remember

when I buried this.

Well it says here 1974.

You would have been my age.


Watch your mouth.

Sorry grandma.

Oh look.

"Return within seven days."

I think you might have

missed the window.


Yeah well you can have the

piece of shit if you want.


I think it's about time

that you should have it.

Have fun.


Hey Bret.

Hey buddy!

Hey, question.

Why do you need

maternity leave again?

Come on man, we've

been over this.

No I know I know,

but are you pregnant?

Told you it wasn't a beer gut.

Yeah, seriously though,

you're gonna ditch us man?

Jane's really gonna need me.

I know, I'm just

messing with ya.
