What do you want?

It's your mom... and Robin and Garth.

They've disappeared.

I just saw them in Dallas.

I'm not kidding.

The police said that in order for somebody

to officially be considered missing,

they need somebody in the family

to file a report.

Why would I do that?

Besides, they're probably off

on some crazy trip again.

- No, this is different, Bill.

- Roy...

you know they're not in my life anymore.

And, frankly,

I'd like to keep it that way.




I need those 600 words

on the Alamo anniversary by 5:00.

Relax, man. It's the same story I wrote

last year and the year before that.

Well, can't help it

if nothing ever happens in San Antonio.

No, plenty happens in San Antonio.

I just don't get to write about it.

Where you going?


- Jack Ferguson.

- This is the reporter?

On a good day.

You know Madalyn Murray O'Hair?

She's disappeared.

Madalyn Murray O'Hair?

The damn cops won't do anything.

Only thing I could think to do

was call a reporter.

- Who's this?

- Name's Roy. But I gotta go.

If you wanna know more,

come by 1682 Greystone Drive tonight.

- What...

- I'll be there.



Bless this food to our use...

and us to thy service.

- Amen.

- Amen.

Now, I don't suppose

you found a job today?

I had an interview.

But I didn't get a law degree

to be a damn receptionist.

You'd be lucky

to be someone's receptionist.

If I were you, I'd start praying.

How do you put up with him, Mother?

The question is, how do I tolerate you?

Living here for free.

- Bringing a bastard into my house.

- Pup!

Don't you ever call my son that.

Sweetie, why don't you just take

your dinner and go on to our room? Hmm?

I am sorry, Billy Boy.

I was just trying to make a point

about your momma, huh?
