Fifi, out in the bush? Seriously?

Oh gosh! You really want me?

Fi was the only person I knew

under 60 who said 'gosh'.

Well, no. But our parents said

we had to bring someone along

with a little bit of class.

To balance out all us inbred rurals.

She lived in town,

but we liked her anyway.

Okay. Give me a sec

and I'll ask mom.

Mommy, can I please go camping

with the girls this weekend?

Camping, out in the bush? Seriously?

I'll admit it, Lee was an odd choice.

He was always working in his mom

and dad's restaurant, or of course...

... playing piano.

Everyone else thought he was strange.

I just thought he was interesting.

- May I take your order?

- No, sorry, I don't wanna order anything.

Is this for pick-up or for take-away?

No, I would like to speak to

your son Lee. Is he available?

- You have menu? - No. Yes I do,

but I don't wanna order anything.

- What you want?

- I want Lee.

Your son Lee.

I want Lee.

- I want Lee.

- This is Lee.

Good evening.

This is Ellie Linton.

I sat next to you in geography

last year. It was on tuesdays.

- I have... sort of longish dark hair.

- Yeah, I know who you are, Ellie.

Good. Well, some

friends of mine and I are...

We're skipping the show this weekend

and we're going camping instead.

I was... We were wondering if...

maybe... if you wanted to...

... come with us? Or not?

- No, that would be awesome.

- Really?

Oh, good. I'll put you down then.

- It was actually... - My mom

makes me go help out now.

Can you text me the details?

Yes, I can...

Yes. I'll do that.

- Alright. See you.

- B... bye.

Lee made it six. But dad said

we had to have eight.

Eventually we compromised on 7,

as long as Robyn was the 7th.

Sorry, Robyn.

If it was just you girls...

... but with boys?

Not without an adult present.
