could have stayed here, you know.

Now that this happened...

Your parents were so lucky

that she was available.

I guess she's on vacation.

Here you go.

- What does she do for a living?

- Nothing, I think.

Imagine not having to work...

- We went to Morocco once.

- A man offered 20 camels for Mom!

So... why didn't

you get to go with them?

- I was too little.

- I agree.

You look like you're from Biafra, too.

They didn't go to Biafra.

- Did you wet your pants?

- I washed the car, like you told me to.

I meant the car, not your crotch.

Hurry up and change, it's almost 12:30.

And my salon's off limits while

we're away, Kristina. Is that clear?

Ever had a real boyfriend?

Have you?

Maybe I have.

You told me you couldn't catch a guy.

Because you're too fat.

Things change...

My cousin's coming next week.

- Gisela?

- Yeah, all the way from Stockholm.

She's had lots of boyfriends.

One of them had a car.

You can blow-dry my hair now.

Go on!

Tina couldn't come over,

she had to clean her closet.

- Why don't you call that cute boy?

- What cute boy?

The one over at the farm, who lives

with his dad. He seems really nice.

- Ola?

- Yeah.

I don't even know him.

Besides, he's stupid

and smells like a barnyard.

Like a barnyard?


- I don't know...

- Hey, give people a chance.

So, what does he smell like?

Hello there. Great, come on in.

Did you ride your bike?

Let's see... There she is.



I'll go make some lemonade.

No thanks, we're fine.

We have... lemonade left.

And then there's Russian, too,

but it makes your mouth hurt...

Yeah, everything's fine.

She takes her swimming lessons

and she's been really good.

Right, but you haven't been eaten

by wild beasts so far, have you?

Give me a break,

I am an adult, after all.
