Yeah, man.

Where are you going?

I want to swing

by the old house.

Are you trying

to make yourself crazy?


How are the renters?

I'd like 'em a whole lot more

if they didn't live

in our fucking house.

They're not watering my lawn.

We'd probably still live here

if you hadn't bought that pool.

Our kids are gonna learn

to swim in that pool.

Oh, yeah?

Are they gonna learn

how to swim

when they're teenagers?

Where did that come from?

We're getting back

in this house.






This is Tracey.

Please leave a message,

and I'll get back to you

when I can.

Tracey, where are you?

Where's our furniture?

I'm trying not to freak out,

but I just got back, and...

The electricity's off.

My debit card isn't working.

Can you call me?

I love you. Just...

Just call me, all right?

This is Tracey.

Please leave a message,

- and I'll get back to you

when I can. -

Tracey, where the f*ck are you?

How much we save

by living here?

Not enough.

Am I getting laid or what?

Oh, yeah, you're getting laid.

In fact, I might lay an egg

up in here.

No more eggs or seeds

or any of that.

Come on, you don't want

another one?

Let's see how you feel after

a weekend alone with them.

And where do you think

you're going?

- Hmm.

- Hmm?

You left three times.

Now it's my turn.

Well, I'm not leaving again.

I'm home for good.

Do you remember who we were

before all this?

Couple dumb, horny kids.

Pretty much.

Still dumb and horny.

With a couple kids.

How long you been up?

It's already 4:
00 P. M.

in Baghdad.

You guys ready

for some hotcakes?

Are you chewing gum?

When did you become

a gum chewer?

Tell me you didn't miss

my pancakes.

Smells good.

I need you to watch

the kids today.

Can you handle them
