Well, look at you.

What, you got another job interview?

No. Yesterday I got a spot

working for Rafe.

I think I'm gonna spend the day

with Tara.

You were gonna give me a hand

getting your stuff from the attic.

Oh, yeah. No, I don't have time, Dad.

I thought we'd get our picture taken

at the mall.

What? Me and you?

No, me and Tara.

I'm late, I gotta pick her up.

What are you doing with Rafe?

I start tomorrow,

at the carpet warehouse.

It's not my dream job or anything.

I'm doing some consulting.

Why don't you talk to Spider

about that real estate development?

I think you'd be a natural in sales.

Or you know what?

Joe Dunham could use a hand.

I was talking to him about ethics

and ethnic labor.

Dad, where's my comb?

Have you seen my comb?


Where the hell's my comb?

How are you doing for money?

I'm okay. I'm okay.

I thought maybe you could take Tara

out for a little treat, on her grandparents.

Where's my comb, Mom?

There's your toothbrush in the sink.

- Here. Here you go.

- Thanks.

- How's the tie?

- It looks fine.

Too short? Too long?

It's all right.

You see the stuffed rabbit

I got her? It's incredible.

Where are you taking her?

Marsden Pond.

Maybe out to the mall.

The picture people are there.

I think it'd be nice to get

some wallet size for you guys.

I always get nervous when those

people try to take my picture. I don't know.

Lt'll be nice. You look nice.

I'm gonna be late.

Annie's gonna be mad.

Tell her hello for us.

I will.

We love you no matter what your job is.

You've always got a room here.

I love you guys. I love you, grandpa.

Lay off that apple jack. Come on, Bomber.

- I don't know what else to do.

Nothing, he's not a child.

You forgot the rabbit.

Morning, Arthur.

- Morning.

Okay, I'm off.

I'm not gonna have a phone put in
