[mumbled chatter over radio]

[man 1 over radio] Crime

continues to rise in the city

along with temperatures,

as a brutal winter finally...

[man 2 over radio] Violent crime

increased in many

of the nation's largest cities

in 2017...

[woman 1 over radio] ...second

year in a row that metro areas

saw jumps in robbery, homicide,

and aggravated assault.

[man 2 over radio] Theories of

the increased crime include

violence associated with drugs,

the high number of guns

in many US cities,

gang violence and retaliation,

and even

problems originating

from conflicts on social media.

[man 3 over radio] So what

happened to the city?

I remember when you could take

a walk at night.

[man 3 over radio] When you

could take a walk at night?

The city's always been bad,

and our police forces

are overworked

and underpaid,

what can we expect?

[woman 2 over radio]

We expect to feel safe.

We expect to walk outside

and not be in danger.

Is that really too much to ask?

[man 4 over radio] Metro police

caution that it's too

early to know

whether increases seen

over the last two years

are coincidences

or the beginning of

a sustained increase

in overall crime rates

around the country.

[siren blaring]

[intense music]



Take it, take it.

Take it.




[exhales sharply]



Jeez. These are heavier.

I'll take care of it.

No, I'll do it. I'm pregnant,

I'm not disabled.

Honey, you shouldn't even

be carrying anything

in the first place.

I'm aware of

what I shouldn't be doing.

No sushi, no dental x-rays

no bean sprouts for some reason.

Honey, you have a month left.

Then you can have

all the bean sprouts you want.

I don't even like bean sprouts.

I just want them

because they say

I can't have them.


I'm in a... strange house

in a strange town

full of strange people

with nothing to do

and nowhere to go.

Are the suburbs really that bad?

Okay. You know what?

I'm gonna make you breakfast.

At our old place, we'd just grab

a bagel across the street.

Oh, come on,

they have bagels here.

Uh, no, they have

exotic pastries

with holes in the middle.

It's an abomination.

Uh, I thought you went

to the store yesterday.

I did.

The supermarkets here are

the size of airport hangars.

I got overwhelmed.

Maybe I can get my mom

to pick up some stuff for us.

Or not. Don't have to do that.

Let's get some food. Uh...

Oh. What do we have here?

Is this the melon?

Is this the latest

of your cravings?

They say, this week

she's the size of a honeydew.


Does that look right?

I don't know.

But I can't wait

to meet our honeydew.

Can I have a slice of honeydew

for breakfast?

You may not eat our child.

Wow. Overprotective mother,

already. That's sad.

It's Sunday. Do you really

have to go into the office?

Well, if I'm gonna take

a month off

to spend it with you

and the honeydew,

I gotta clear my caseload now.

I know. It's just, we gotta

whip this house into shape.

I'll unpack

some more stuff tonight.

It's fine. I can do it.

Well, I know you can do it.

You can do anything.

I just prefer

if you don't, okay?

Just try to enjoy your free time

while you still have it.

Free time? Is that what we're

calling unemployment now?

- Yup.

- I just need something to do.

[Peter] My mom says

the neighbors are great.

And she says there is

a fantastic bagel place nearby.

Home of the blueberry

bacon bagel?

It just sounds wrong.

- It could be good.

- I'll try it.

But only because I'm hungry.

- And because of bacon.

- [Peter chuckles]

I love you. And you, honeydew.
