It's so she doesn't walk like that

at the wedding, Mr. Lustig.

- Okay, okay. What's my favorite candy bar?

- The Whatchamacallit.

- Who's my favorite first daughter?

- Me.

- I love you.

- Love you. Bye.

- I love you.

- Thank you, Mr. Lustig.

Here they come.


- You got him from here?

- Oh, you're not his nurse?

Sir, I work for the airline.

I'm not a nurse.

What? No, I was saying

because of the wheelchair...

This is an airport wheelchair.

And I'm actually gonna need it back.

Someone needs it more, sir.

Oh! Someone needs it more than this guy?

Okay. Okay.

How was your trip, pal?

Oh. Oh!



- No legs?

- Yeah. Why?

I thought he still had one.

You didn't tell me.

Well, maybe you never asked.

That's diabetes. Works fast.

- Terrible.

- Yeah.

Okay, anything else? I'm at work.

Okay. Why is he alone?

What, you think I got time

to come in early?

World doesn't stop, bud.

I'm running a pharmacy here.

Uh, look, just call me later

and I'll give you all the instructions.

Instructions? What instructions?

You know, changing, his upkeep,

all that stuff.

- So, he doesn't have a nurse?

- Oh, calm down!

The doc says he can go 48 hours

without another cleaning

- if you don't have time.

- What's a "cleaning"?

- We'll talk. I got a customer.

- Wait!

So, he's gonna stay

at the hotel all alone?

You're putting him in a hotel? He's 87!

It's just, there's so much going on

at the house already...

The man is 87!

Okay, I'm taking him home!

Oh, so, how's the painting going, Seymour?

You still doing the ceramics?


Just tell Sarah to help you.

Move my desk and fold out the sofa.

You were gonna put him

in a hotel? With no legs?

I didn't know about the no legs!

It's fine. It's one person.

Yes. Um, just... I'll be another hour.
