We'll, um, drag in the fucker.

She's still up. Gonna be grounded

'til I'm 35 years old.

Where have you been?

You go to that room and shut that door.

Ow!

You are grounded, goddamnit!

Thanks Ophelia. I'll call you.

Oh Binx!

I'm all right.

Did Hubie Pyatt do this?

Well I got my bike back!

Hang on I see a spot!

I'm amazing.

Hey guys wait here. It won't take very long.

I'm coming with you.

No you're not!

Oh, hi, Ophelia.

You think he's cute?

She thought Hubie Pyatt was cute. Let's go!

No! You're staying here. Watch him, Ophelia.

What? Oh.

Hubie, that's for you.

It's an estimate from the body shop.

For what?

For my brother's scooter.

$608 dollars. That includes:

parts, labor, paint, and tax.

You're out of your mind.

The bill is for scooter.

And this is for Binx....

You crazy bitch!

Hello folks? How are you, young lady?

Hubie? Where are you, boy?

Mr. Pyatt?

Yes, ma'am.

Dad...

What are you doing down there?

Mr. Pyatt, I'm here to collect $608 dollars.

Your son, Hubie, trashed my brother's scooter

and that's what it will cost to get it fixed.

Get up, dummy.

Did she do this to you?

She's lying, dad!

It's the truth and he knows it.

Come on. Let's go.

Boy it's never a dull moment around here.

You'll have to come back soon and see what happens next.

Yeah, sure.

Looks like we got a difference of opinion, don't we?

Don't believe her, dad, she's from the trailers.

Oh yeah! What's that got to do with it?

She'll say anything!

Woah, hey, slow down, Hubie.

You look a bit under the weather. Why don't you get

some fresh air? It'll do some good.

Just throw her out, dad!

Boy... making too much noise.

I'll settle this. Take a hike.

Damn, bitch... ruined my life.

Hubie and the truth, have a natural way of not

getting along together.
