hasn't happened.

Aw, don't worry about it.

You got time.

Don't worry about it.

Wait a minute.

Is that who I think it is out there?

Oh, my God.

Look who it is.

Aw, Jacob.

You're in trouble right here.

Dude, things must be going great, man.

You look fantastic.

Um, can Isay I can't complain

without sounding like I'm bragging?

- ( laughs )

- 'Cause I can't complain.

How long did it take

you guys to drive in?

Oh, about an hour, hour and a half.

There was a little bit of traffic.

Hour and a half.

That's not nearly enough.

You gotta get away

from here, Jake.

You gotta run away

and not look back.

You're better than that

is what I'm trying to say.

Cully, really?

What is in here?

- Nut up, bro.

- This is straight vodka.

No, there's a little bit

of soda in it.

You're gonna have so much fun

at Grandma and Grandpa's.

Yes, you are.

Mommy's gonna have

a night without you.

She loves you, but she needs to be

with some adults, doesn't she?

Hey, hey, guys.

We got an idea.

Is there any way we can sneak

some of this booze in?

Isn't there--

there's an open bar, right?

I know that.

It's the principle of the thing.
