How many apple cakes can I eat?


You're my daughter.

It's just us now.

No smoking.

You're not my mother. Dad...

I told you, I quit.

Quit buying, maybe.

So how do you like

the Dodgers this year?

Ups and downs, right?

Did you know the Dodgers

originally played in New York?

I remember seeing them when

I lived in Brooklyn as a kid...

before they moved,

before I moved.

Moving someplace new is

always a jolting experience.

I mean, the hot dogs

don't even taste the same.

Grandpa. I'm sorry.

My point is,

they picked it back up again.

Ups and downs, right?

That's what life's all about.

Come here.

Am I in trouble?

When I was your age,

my grandfather...

your, what, great-


taught me how to spit

watermelon seeds.

Anybody ever teach you that?

No. Okay.

First, you take

a bite like this.

You work it in your mouth.

Try to get all the seeds

between your teeth

and your cheek.

And when all the fruit is gone,

and the seeds

are all you got left...

you let her rip.

Now you try.

Not bad.

You know...

with all the seedless

watermelons they have now,

this is a dying art.

I got into a fight

the other day.

So I heard.

You aren't mad?

I didn't have

to duck any punches.

But now that you

bring it up, can I ask why?

I don't want to talk about it.

Fair enough.

Mom and Dad say

I have to choose.


Who I want to live with.

Oh. Yeah.

You know they both

love you very much.

Lots of boys don't

have that luxury.

I want my parents

to live together.

I think you'll find that

what we want and what we get

are rarely the same thing.

Reminds me of a story that

my grandfather, your...


Good. Grandfather, told me.

It was about...

Nah, skip it. What?

Well, it's just a stupid story.
