wait till the final stretch,

then you run this nag into the

ground if you must, understood?

Oh, jeez... yeah.

Come on... yah!

Hurry up!


- what the hell are you doing?

- The requisite

physical overview.

I'm checking for lameness,

mucous membranes, back withers,

attitude, muscle and anal tone,

according to the checklist.

Just take his pulse

and get him on the road.


Anal tone.

Come on, boy, come on.

Come on.

Heeyahh! Heeyahh!

Come on.

Come on. Come on.




Come on, go.

Yeah! That's my boy!


My dad might be watching.

So what?

I'm already an hour late.

I'm sorry.

What are you looking at?

- Not much.

You're putting me to sleep.

Oh, yeah?

Maybe this will wake you up.

Looks kind of small.

We got a bigger one for our

sow Susie at the state fair.

Saddle her up.

We'll gave a go at it.

Oh, wait.

Didn't you guys eat her?

I could whip your butt.

Just let me know

when your daddy

lets you back on a horsey...

I'll be waiting.

Happy trails.

I'll let you borrow

my pig trophy,

If it'll make you feel

any better, Darrow.


Virginia, you have a gift.

It's from mom's recipe box.

Oh, no thanks.

- No thanks?

- I don't feel like it right now.

But you always liked

lemon-meringue pie.

I'm kind of full.

She just wants to keep

her girlish figure for Darrow.

Uh, yeah, well, uh...

Speaking of Darrow,

in my opinion,

he drives a little too fast.

And you can tell him that,

if he doesn't slow down,

you won't be going anywhere

with him, OK?

And while we're on the subject,

isn't that skirt

a little bit too short?

Ha, what, for lobster town?

- What about your jeans?

- Jeans?

You used to criticize me

for wearing them too much.

The ones with holes

in the butt.

That's it.

I'm finished.
