A Weekend with the Family

Synopsis: A young attorney looks to gain a position at a prestigious law firm while secretly dating his boss' daughter, who he's hoping to marry; but when his loving girlfriend decides to arrange a surprise family weekend get-together, his plans blow up in his face, especially with the arrival of his ghetto-fied family, the Stankershets. Travis and Courtney portray love interests who struggle to hold on to their relationship all while their two families wage war in an explosion of hilarity. It's the far east against the deep south; strict, traditional, Korean customs versus a backwards, country way of life. In the end, Travis must find a way to make the two families peacefully co-exist long enough for him to propose to the woman he loves.

[upbeat music playing]

[Travis] Have you ever been in the middle

of everything in your life

falling completely apart,

and you stop and ask yourself,

"Where the hell did it all go wrong?"

This is the moment that ruined it all.

Just look at me,

standin' there looking like

a complete dummy,

just waitin' to get caught.

[stuttering] Hey, girl!

What's goin' on? What are you doing?

[stuttering] What up?

What you mean what...

I just got out the shower.

You the one sneakin' up on...

Babe, what you doin'?

You're such a bad liar, Travis.

You're right, I can't lie to you.

That's why I love you,

'cause you be knowing me.

Babe, you acting a lil' weird.

Got a court case today.

And it's big...

Okay, big day, butterflies, generally...

-Exactly, just a little...


Okay, anyway, so which shoe

shall I wear today?

That's a good one. I like...

-the brown!


Good choice.

You know I make good choices, I chose you.

Okay, I am running super late.

You have a good day at work.

[Courtney] I love you. Love you.

-I love you too.

-Bye, have a good day.

All right, you too.

-[Travis] Love you, girl.

-[Courtney] Love you too.

[music continues]



Mr. Jenkins here

has repeatedly demonstrated

an immense lack of self control...

[aggressively] What? Those are lies!

Lies, lies, lies!

Counselor, control your client, or I will

have him removed from this courtroom.

...as demonstrated in front

of you all today.

[Mr. Jenkins] Object, object. I'm not

going to win, I'm not going to win!

Objection, Your Honor,

my client has done nothing more

than express his religious freedoms.

In fact, the last time I checked,

the practice of voodoo

is legal in this country, and it is absurd

that the counselor and Mrs. Jenkins

have attacked my client's personal

and religious freedoms

in these court proceedings,

all for the sole purpose of monetary gain,

might I add?

-We got this one in the bag.

-I hope so.

I'm paying you guys enough.

Your Honor, it is his religious beliefs

that are in question here.


-You may proceed, Mr. Stanley.

-Thank you, Your Honor.

As we will prove,

it was only after his many infidelities

that he decided to choose

this new "religious" path,

which includes the many perks

of male polyamory and polygamy.

Neither of which did my client,

Miss Jenkins, agree to

on the onset of their marriage,

proving that Mr. Solomon Jenkins here

was just a squirrel

that tried to get his nut and keep it.

You killed 'em!

Squirrel that tried to keep his nut?

Man, really!

Did you see Mr. Clancy in the back?

-I did see him.

-He was even laughing.

That's 14 in a row, baby, we're on a roll.

Clancy and Lynch and Associates.

Here we go, boy!

[both exclaiming indistinctly]

You boys were amazing!

Thank you so much. I feel like I have

a new lease on life.

Don't mention it, Miss Jenkins.

It's our job.

Call me Wanda.

Thank you, Wanda.

You boys be good.

Or bad...

-I think it was the cologne.

-Got to be the cologne.

-Got to get you some.

-I can give...

[Rosie] Yeah, boss,

I had a real good weekend.

Got myself a new lil' thang.

Girl, he was working it out with...

What's goin' on with you, boss?

You're not acting like yourself.

I'm okay. Just thinking.

So, whose ass do I need to kick?

Rosie, everything is fine.

Just got a lot on my mind.

Can my teeth be on your mind?

I just wanna get outta here.


-[Rosie] Now, wait a minute.

We don't take the Lord's name

in vain here.

Okay, you gotta get your energy together.


-Tell Jesus that you're sorry.
