-Miss Lily.

See you later.

Is it because I don't have all my teeth?

We're not discussing it.

You have to wear them down.

'Bye, darling.


-'Bye, Aunt Rae.


-Why do buildings have stories?

-What do you mean?

Why do they say 20 stories

or 50 stories high?

Good question. I don't know.

We'll look it up.



Mom, green means go.

Bichon Partners.

Eddie Bichon's office, please.

Eddie Bichon's office.

Hello, June. Could I speak to Eddie?

Hi, Grace. He's not in.

He said he'd be in a meeting

for the rest of the afternoon.

Did he say where?

No. If he calls in,

should I have him call you?


-All right.

The horse is being sold

as part of the divorce settlement.

Dad's got him down to the low two's.

Dad wants me to go out to dinner

with clients, so I'll be home by 11:00.

Kiss the doodlebug for me.

Hey, Grace. It's me. This meeting

took longer than we thought.

Dad wants me to go out to dinner

with these clients--

That's Daddy's car.

Baby, wait here.

You're busted.

-Hi, Daddy!

-Get in the car.

Jesus Christ.

Get your ass out here, now.

Excuse me a second.

-Call 911!

-Good luck!

-Is that your nightgown?

-We came to get you.

Hi, tadpole. I'll put you in the car.

It's way past your bedtime.

What are you doing up?

Get in the car, Grace.

Sweetheart, are you in?

-Get in the car.


Will you please get in?

You're making a spectacle of yourself.

You are making a spectacle of me!

What is wrong with you?

-I saw you.

-What are you talking about?

I saw you.

The corner of Fourth and Union.

You know what I'm talking about.

I saw you.

You were with a girl in a red suit.

The same girl that's right in there.

Honey, I don't know

what you think you saw...

...but that was not me.
