I read in the "Little Big Book of Birds"

that ravens were once

the most colorful birds.

But they were vain and mean

and never recognized their beauty.

They were too busy

being unkind to each other

so they were stripped of all

their colors and turned black.

They are considered so evil

that their favorite food is said

to be the flesh of a dead man.

But ravens really like

to be together, like family.

Let me introduce you to my ravens.

What's up, man?

Look, it'll just be a couple of days.

They're good people.

You got nothing to worry about, all right?

- Come on, Mom, let's go.

- You know what? You go ahead.

- I just want a minute alone, okay?

- Fine, grump.

- Hello, ladies.

- Hi.

- Hey, Provider-Dad. Can we go swimming?

- We'll go in a little bit.

- Why?

- 'Cause I want to talk to your mom.

- Promise?

- I promise.

Okay. See you at the dock.

- How was the flight?

- Not bad, a little bumpy.


- Glad you're here.

- Me too.

Wendy, hey. Oh, my God.

Come here, group hug, group hug.

- Here you go.

- Yeah? Nice.

Oh, my God, this is Saturn.

She's my life partner for now.

We had to put the finishing touches

on the art car for Burning Man,

so we just worked all night, hopped

in the vangina and, boom, here we are.

All right, well,

if you need anything, just ask.

Yeah, I will.

You're a Virgo, aren't you?

- Triple.

- That is so sexy.

- The truth is always beautiful.

- Mm-hm. Thanks, all right.

There they are. Good times.

Come here.

- You blinked.

- No, I didn't.

You did. Now go get your

victorious bio-dad a drink.

Pink fever dry martini standing up

with a lemon twist... two olives?

- Atta boy.

- Sounds good.

Why don't you get your provider-Dad

one of those as well?

Come here. Show Emma where

you keep the Chardonnay, okay?

Let's grab a round of small ball

this weekend, yeah?

- What's a small ball?

- Golf, darling. It's very, very dull.

- Saul.

- Ellis.

- Saul.

- Ellis.

Here's your room.

Oh, this is very nice.

- We've never stayed on this floor before.

- Oh, really? I didn't realize that.

Yeah, we stay in the room

by the kitchen, the maid's quarters.

What? I'm not saying anything underneath

what I'm saying. I'm simply stating a fact.

Well, Joey's really excited to see you.

All she can talk about is you.

She's a smart kid.

Try and spend some time with her.

It'll mean so much.

You know, Jay's coming.

He's supposed to be here for dinner but...

he's bringing a guest.

I guess he needed a ride.

You know Jay. At least he has a new

girlfriend. He seems really happy.

The drink always goes on the right side.

This is the incorrect side

or the left side.

- Put it on the right side.

- I think I'm going to make a toast.

Ellis and I want to thank you so much for

coming to our home and celebrating with us.

We really appreciate you making

the commitment every summer

to come to our annual 4th of July party.

Tradition is important

and you mean the world to us.

So... cheers, to us and to years to come.

- Years to come.

- Years to come.


- So how's work, big guy?

- It's fantastic.

When everyone in Hollywood is bitching about

the recession, I haven't felt a goddamn thing.

My new book hasn't even come out yet

and I've already sold the movie rights.


Yes, not caving to commercialism

is a real feat for you, isn't it, darling?

And you don't seem to be bothered

by the lifestyle its afforded you.

- Honey, can you get some more wine?

- Yeah, sure.

Joey... could you bring us a bottle

of the '63 Chateau Lafleur, please?

We're out. We have the 2009 Twin Oaks.
