Can I borrow that for a second?

[Breaking glass]



Sup stupid?

So dad...

Like, dad, dad?

Like our- like our dad?

Who else's dad would I

be talking to you about?

That's nuts.

When's the funeral?

In Kansas City, which

means we have to leave...

Wait, did you say tomorrow?

- Yeah.

Oh, I can't go to that, dude.

What do you mean? Yeah you can.

No I can't. I have a lot

of sh*t going on here.

I can't just leave

everything, ok?

Ten minutes ago you were

passed out in a wigwam.

Yeah, well... no

it wasn't a wigwam.

Name one thing that

you have to do.


Like tomorrow?

Well tomorrow is kind

of more of a setup day.

But I've got a lot

of things to...

If I named it, you wouldn't

understand it because...

It would- they're so

long-range that you wouldn't

understand how they work.

Just name one thing. One thing.

I'm getting a bird tomorrow.

I'm getting a bird. I can't

have the guy drop the bird

off tomorrow and me not be there

Yeah, I'm being

extremely serious, dude.

It sounds like it's

not a big thing...

That doesn't count, Dave.

That's not...

Dude, I appreciate this

whole thing about you

And don't think it doesn't

touch me right here, dude.

But... bottom line,

I just can't go.

I'll give you a hundred

and fifty dollars if you

get in my car right now.

Let's go.

Hey dude, get dressed.

We got to meet mom and

Michelle at the steak-

get out of my room!

It's my room too, Dave.

You left and now

it's my room, ok?

Yeah, that's not how it works.

That's kind of exactly

how it works. It's called

the case of finders versus

keepers, and you're not involved

what are you looking for?

I'm looking for my Alonzo

mourning rookie card.

And please get out, because

I'm trying to find it and

your gonna screw up my

whole process.

But that's not why I want the

card. The card's worth like-

where the hell are my avs


You're avs posters are gone.

I took those down.

Why'd you take down

my avalanche posters?

Because the

avalanche suck, dude. Ok?

Redwings are where it was at.

I don't want any

losers on my walls.

Well where'd you put 'em?

I don't- I don't want people

thinking I'm a chelio's fan.

Nobody's gonna mistake

you for a chelios fan, ok.

Dude's a f***ing warrior.

You're definitely more

of a forsberg guy.

I think people can tell that.

Please, get out of my room!

I'm trying to help you.

You're trying to bother me

when I'm trying to work.


If I wasn't so scared about

tombstome pile driving you on

top of the card I'm looking for

and breaking it, your ass would

be on the ground right now. Ok?

Dude, an Alonzo mourning card

is not worth a lot of money.

It's gotta be worth at least

ten grand by right now.

I bet you ten grand that

it's not worth ten grand.

I'll be you ten grand that

if you hit me with that

umbrella again, I'm gonna

knock your teeth out.

Oww! F***, stop doing that!

So you wanna shove that whole

garbage bag behind the toilet

for like... two weeks, right?

Pop a straw in it, make

sure it doesn't blow up.

There you go, you have

a big bag of wine.

You know it's free, right?

What? Yeah. Just uh...

Saving this for later.

Jeez is that ok?

My dad's dead, and this guy's

being a f***ing a**hole.

Yeah, last time I saw

Devin he looked horrible.

Devin? Who's that?

Shut up, you don't know 'em.

His hair's falling out.

- Gross.

He's super fat.

- Woof.

Looks like he has a

sunburn all the time.

My two boys!

Oh mom, you found the wine.

Hi mom.

It's so good to see the

two of you together again.

I'm just glad we could

get this guy down here.
