you are a genius.

It's just a label.

My daughter's a genius,

but she's too old for you.

How old are you?

I'll be 23 in October.

Get out of here. October...

That makes you a Libra, right?

So scales, justice...

You're probably very diplomatic.

You should be a lawyer.


You should be.

You should.

Oh, my god.

No, no, no. I'm not even

a candidate for Lasik.

They said they had to slice my eyeball

open and put in a little... a lens.

Well, you should get

what I have. Transitions.

They go from regular glasses to

sunglasses when you walk outside.

And you can get them anywhere.


Want me to make you

an appointment?

What is it?

Oh, my god.

It's an iPad.

What? What?

Wow. Oh, my god.


This is crazy generous.

Well, I know it wasn't

on your list. No.

But, I was in the apple store

the other day,

and I saw this little Filipino

boy, practically a baby,

and he was playing

with one of these...

I mean, what do you...


IPad, yes.

And then Freddy came over,

and he told me

that you can load in programs...

Like Nemo and Barney's circus...



Brilliant. Marnie, thank you.

This is so nice.

Lori has the best mum ever.

Apart from my mum.

Did you get that down?

I'm gonna write it down.

Write it down. Yeah.

Hey, where is Lori?

I think she's working.

She had a deadline.

I mean, a countdown.

Yeah, she said she'd watch
