- That was three days ago.

- Sorry we're late.

We had to garage the car.

Dad had to sell me into child slavery

to pay for it.

- That's basically right.

- Did you try east?

- Twice.

- We did.

Bruno! He does this elegant pirouette.

Dad... what happened to your face?

Did you get into a fight?

I was walking Bruno in the country

when he lunged for a feral hare

in the brush, and I tumbled forward.

Shit. Did you see a doctor?

I'm fine. My joke is,

"you should see the other dog."

Good one, grandpa.

Maureen won't even

walk that path anymore.

- She was mauled by a buck.

- A buck in the berkshires?

A male deer.

- Really?

- Maybe it was a big dog or a small boy.

In her indomitable way,

she survived with just a nasty raspberry

on her knee, but her wallet was gone.

- The mets have relinquished the lead.

- Shit.

- Your sister's here.

- They were tied when we were in the car.

I could tell dad wanted to say hi

to you guys by himself.

- When did you get here?

- A couple hours ago.

- Thanks for showing up late.

- Oh, let's...

I made cookies, but I stepped in dog shit.

I like your sweater.

Oh, thanks. I like your pin.

- Are you excited for college tomorrow?

- Yeah, I really can't wait.

Dad keeps saying

he wishes he hadn't retired now

so that you could take his class.

I couldn't make sculptures.

It's too intimidating.

She's very excited,

which I'm trying not to take personally.

I'm bad with transitions.

You don't leave the house.

There are no transitions.

Maureen is plastered.

Maureen, everyone's here! Come down!

Maureen's making shark.

- I don't think I've ever had shark before.

- Maureen's a real gourmand.

- You're in for a treat.

- She's been sober for six weeks.

Oh, okay.

I told her,

"I don't like you when you drink."

She becomes a different person.
