MAGGIE:
(LAUGHING)

Okay, okay, okay.

NATHAN:
Mom!

Okay. Okay, fine.

Mom!

My favorite... What?

Mom, this isn't funny.

Seriously.

Okay, my favorite thing

about your father is...

Ow! That hurt.

Uh...

Oh, that he likes to do his own laundry.

That's pretty much it.

NATHAN:
Oh, uh, well.

I don't like to do

my own laundry.

Seriously, Mom, please answer the question.

Come on!

Well, that's all I've got.

That's it.

That's all she...

See how she treats me?

Yeah. That's all I get is,

"I like to do my own laundry"? Really?

Yeah, what else?

Don't tickle, you know I don't like that.

Just like I love doing my own laundry.

(LAUGHING)

Okay! Okay, fine!

My favorite thing,

my favorite thing is that he never forgets,

uh, birthdays, or anniversaries.

Or anniversaries!

Okay fine, I will be more profound.

Okay.

Uh, my favorite thing

about your father

is that he loves you

as much as I do.

(SCREAMING)

(LAUGHING)

(SPITS)

Oh, and, uh, don't forget

the caterpillar eyebrows.

Oh, well, I mean,

how could you forget about those?

First of all, I do not have

caterpillar eyebrows!

Second of all, I am going...

You better run!

You better run!

You better run! Run!

(LAUGHS)

I love you guys.

Aw!

Aw! We love you.

I love you too much!

I love you more than that!

Look at our kid.

This is Joyce Miner,

WKRC in Detroit,

reporting on the devastan

that has hit Japan.

The level of damage over such a

vast area is hard to comprehend

Soldiers from all over the world,

including our own troops,

poke their way through the

wreckage of entire towns

hoping for a noise or cr.

In truth, it's remarkable

that more people didn't.

In the most

difficult-to-reach places,

the most badly hit

by the tsunami,

they're still looking

for survivors.

The United States military has deployed

units to help with the rescue

and to bring supplies

to the victims.

It's pretty hopeless in these

freezing and miserable conditions.

They have no food,

water, electricity or gas.

The loss is breathtaking.

Thousands have died

over there

but 300,000 are left

holding on to there

as authorities struggle to deal with

the magnitude of this situation.

Our local troops,

from all over the Detroit area,

have been arriving daily to

help with this grave disaster.

This is Joyce Miner

from WKRC, Detroit.

(TOY PIANO PLAYING

CLASSICAL MUSIC)

Huh?

Ta-da!

Whoo! Aw,

that was great, sweetie!

I know, I keep telling him

practice makes perfect. Right?

I miss you, Mom.

I miss you too but before you know

it I'll be back to tuck you in.

Nobody tucks me in

like you do.

Hey! Thanks a lot, buddy.

No offense, Dad, but, uh, "Lights outs,

soldier!" isn't exactly Mom's style.

(LAUGHS) Okay, well, you know what?

I'll tell you what.

Tonight, after lights out,

I want you to look up

at the sky.

You look up at the sky and you know that

we are both looking at the same moon.

Okay?

I'll do that, Mom.

Can I go play now?

Hey! I saw that!

Let him go, he's a kid.

I think one recital

is enough for the night.

Mom, you're the best!

Okay, you can go but I want

you back by 6:
00, okay?

I'm making you

an extra special dinner.

NATHAN:
You got it, Dad.

GEORGE:
No soldier left behind!

I love you, Mom.

I love you to.

You spoil him too much.

It's 'cause I love him

too much.

Hey, so what's this

special dinner?

I am making

frozen chicken enchiladas.

Oh, so you've mastered

the microwave oven?

Hey, nobody can nuke it

like I can, huh?

(CHUCKLES)

How's it going over there?

Oh, it's just been non-stop

since we got to Tokyo.

There's thousands of tsunami victims
