If you don't mind I'll stay out here, Father.

- I don't mind, I don't blame you.

Here.

Piece of candle.

Hurry!

Hurry now!

We don't know what to expect here.

... even very far of grace the Lord is with me.

Bless them till the end.

I don't think so.

Excuse me.

Anything you have...

This one is the same colour that's

in my room. Right here.

Well, Father.

It's gone.

Are you sure?

The house would not let me

stand here otherwise.

Could it be a trick.

Maybe it's laying low for now.

Sickness has been known to trick even priests.

Lord knows it's done it

to me more times than I care to admit.

But not this time.

I just feel it in my bones.

He's quit the house.

Somewhere there must be a

young handsome artist.

There is so much junk Helen,

we're wasting a perfectly good day.

Honey, don't run around.

Sweetheart, come here. - Why?

Rhonda.

Look at this.

This is just perfect.

This is ugly.

- Yeah, that's why it's perfect.

One hundred dollars.

Even the price is right.

Helen, you're not gonna buy this ... this ...

Monstrosity? Of course, I am.

A matter of fact I think I'm gonna give it

to my sister as a birthday present.

You think she'll like it?

Well, I think she'll understand it.

It's gonna make her laugh.

Well, that's the point.

In our age things aren't as important as fun.

Well it'll cost you more to

ship it than it's worth.

- Well, I can afford it. Oh, damn.

That thing is sharp.

Oh, thanks.

Maybe we ought to get you tetanus shot.

Don't worry about it, I'll be fine.

Coming, coming.

Hi.

Postal on the national?

- Oh, yeah, Right here.

Okay.

Would you sign up form for me please?

- Sure.

That's a nasty looking finger, lady.

At my age

I've had worse.

Hope, I won't.

Thank you.

All right, look at this. It's

like living in the country.

It is living in the country.

Out houses and the wild animals.

Very funny.

It's probably five miles from school.

Two miles.

I used to ride my bike all the time.

- Right. In hell storms of the broken leg.

After washing the dishes and doing the laundry.

That's right.

Hey ...

Here it is.

Hey, there's a delivery truck.

Is that our stuff, mom?

Wrong company.

Besides I don't expect it for a week.

House is bigger than I remember.

Looks older too. - This, older? So are you.

- But I'm not the aged. - Not yet.

Look, there's grandma.

Okay, you guys. Be nice.

Hi grandma.

Oh, Brian.

Oh, you've grown. I swear you're going to take

after your grandfather's side of the family.

Oh, good trip?

Piece of cake.

Hi mom.

Good to see you.

Amanda, welcome.

- Hi grandma.

And Jessica.

Oh, come give me a hug.

Come on, Jessica.

Oh, that's right.

Oh, that's good.

Do I have to share room, grandma?

No one will have to share.

I've got it all worked out.

- What'd you buy, mom?

I didn't. It's a gift from your aunt Helen.

I'm sure it's another one of her little jokes.

Looks like a pretty big joke to me.

Just put it in the living room.

Around to your right.

Well, thanks.

Thank you very much.

Hey, look grandma got a bird.

Wouldn't you remember Fred?

Oh no, you wouldn't. I got him

since you were here last.

That would be ...

two years.

Can he speak?

He can say, pretty bird.

Maybe while you're here you can

teach him a few words.

Can I see my room, grandma?

Upstairs, third door on the left.

Brian will be across the way. - Thanks.

Pretty bird.

You have Jessica next to me. Right, mom?

- Oh, yeah.

Open the present, grandma.

Do you think it might be

something really special?

Yeah, I do.

All right then. Let's find out.

Brian ...

fetch me a sharp knife from the kitchen.

You'll find it in the drawer

to the right of the sink.

Now, what can that be?

Pepper.

How are you?

You remember me?

Huh, kitty.

Remember when me and dad

took that thorn out of your paw?

Aunt Helen must have money to

burn sending something this big

all the way from the Long Island.

Maybe the jokes on her this time.

It has the look of them. Genuine antique.

Mother, it's as ugly as sin.

You see? Even Fred agrees with me.

You know a little, but it's fairly interesting.

Hey, look who I found.

Pepper!

Oh, honey. Are you all right?

- Why was she troubling you like that?

You were squeezing her.

- Was not. - Were too. - All right, all right.

- Pepper. Pepper, kitty.

She probably just agrees with Fred.

I mean about that lamp.

Well, honey you better wash it out.

- Mom, do you have any peroxide around here?

- Upstairs, in my medicine chest.

I know it's been a long time since you've

had your house invaded like this, mom.

I mean, I really didn't know what else to do.

Frank's life insurance money

was dwindling away on living expenses.

This way I'll have fighting chance.

In a year I'll have my teaching credentials and

And I think I'm going to sell the mortgage.

- Well, I hope you got a good

rental fee for the house.

Enough to cope with the carrying costs.

Amazing isn't it?

The words "carrying costs" seven months ago

were a foreign language to me.

Eighteen years of marital shelter gone in one

gasp. - Well, it does seem such a shame that

Frank would leave you in such a state.

It's not what I meant.

Well, I'm simply pointing out that ...

I know what you're pointing out.

Mom, I came home, because I

needed help. Not criticism.

I know how you felt about Frank.

But I had eighteen incredible years with him.

Three wonderful kids.
