Stir 'em up.

Watch the tea!

Watch my China!

Four crack.


So who was that

young man you were with

the other day,

quite a studmuffin.

One of my young

lovers of course.

Five bam.

But you have so many,

it's like a revolving door.

You know people are

beginning to talk.

Yes, we are quite

notorious here.

Well if only that were the case.

Rebecca and I would be

having much more fun here.

Two flower.

Still though, all

those young men.

Keeps you young, doesn't it?

You'll never tell, I know.

Oh, we don't want that from you.

I never saw this coming.

I guess I was confused.

It's all about love, after all.

For 50 years, never

had a babysitter.

It's a caretaker, mom.

She's not here to babysit you.

Listen ma, it's not

even about the stairs.

Do you remember what happened

last time you mixed up

a caretaker can help you

keep 'em all straight.

What was wrong with

Carol, I liked her!

We already talked about this.

She wasn't qualified, and it

really doesn't even matter

if you liked her, we're

not doing this for

a rent-a-friend here.

I guess my choice means nothing.

No, that's not it, mom.

I just meant...

you know better than

your senile mom, right?

That's not it.

I hire people all the

time, it's what I do.

I just know what I'm

looking for, that's all.

Come on ma.

What time is your flight?


Never mind.

Thanks again for coming.

The pleasure is all mine,

it's great to meet both of you.

I understand how

this could be...

Awkward for you.

I'm here to help.

Well I'm glad to

hear that, thank you.

You have a wide

breadth of experiences.

Yes, I guess I'm a collector.

A collector?


professions, as it were.

Excuse me, a moment.

Sorry about that, work.

Where were we?

Oh yes, a collector?

Now that's an interesting

way you put that.

Let's see here, you've

worked in health care,

it, entertainment and...

Excuse me, mortuary?


I did that in college.

It was interesting,

but not really for me.

So, what brings you to Haley?

I've spent a lot of

time in big cities,

east coast, west coast...

I wanna get out of the rat race.

I just wanna go somewhere...




Somewhere I can take

care of someone and...

Figure out my next step.

Do you uh...

Do you have any

questions about the job?

No, I think the job

description was pretty clear.

Similar to other jobs I've had.

Not to interrupt,

I just wanna say,

that although the

job is similar,

being a caregiver is

a huge responsibility,

and it's different

from place to place

and person to person.

I will do my best to

fit into your life

and to make it better.

Well thanks, I'm sure that...

have you ever been married?


That, that has...


It is a fair question.

If I'm gonna move in,

she has the right to know

a little bit more about me

than what's on my resume.

I've never been married.

I've been close a few times.

I don't know.

Maybe I'm not the

relationship kind.

Well I'm sure a pretty

woman like yourself

has had her chances.

Thanks, I suppose so.

Things just always

seem to fall apart.

I'm better single, I guess.

Well, I can understand that.

I don't know about her.

What's not to like?

She's got, she's got experience.

A great background,

good references.

I don't know.

She just seems too good.

Are you kidding me?

You don't want her here

'cause she's too right

for the job?

I don't believe this.

You know, mom, it

doesn't even matter.

I offered her the

job, she accepted.

We signed an agreement,

you do remember that right?

It was your agreement, not mine.
