Do you guys want to do it over there?

Do you wanna...

My representation is that we move over here...


Can we do it or not?

No, not at the corner over there.

The way the sun is right now, will be really great.

I mean, is there a way we

could face this direction...

Do you have anything particular in

mind that you want to do this year?

Don't ask me.

Don't ask you, huh.

Scott, you don't see the swing set, do you?

Do you see the swing set at all?

I don't want that, in front, at all.

The swing, not at all.

That doesn't look like a life, kid, how about it?...

Hey again, do you want to do the job, anyone?

You're not gonna get the flash

in Keith's eye glasses are you?

No... actually...

I like when you're comfortable in that...

that's such a great shot.

- I hate you.

- All right.

- Tell you what. Be comfortable, now.

- Because you're a natural.


- What are you doing?

- Really boring work.

Do you feel like making us lunch instead?

- What do you want?

- Um, tuna rolls.

We will right outside, near the arrival,

right after she come through passports changed.

Ok . Yeah.

Yes, we have a piano.

She gonna plays piano.

Okay, great.

Okay, alright, bye-bye.

- She's actually coming?

- Yes, she's actually coming.

Coming in a couple of days.

And the school is week after next, so...

should be here, ready to go, get everything in place.

How to settle in, should be enough time.

You know I've got my audition coming up, right.

You'll be fine?

I know my audition, I've got to practice.

You can still practice.

She's not going to disturb you.

You can stay up in your room and

practice, you can practice at school,

or you can practice out in the garage,

most of the places you can practice.

It's not about...

Look, it's going to be great.

And we're gonna be very welcoming and kind.

Are you going to be the

one babysitting or anything....

You're not babysitting her, she's not a child.

She's actually older than you by a couple of months.

She is 18 already.

It's a wonderful program.

I am not gonna want to go away

from my final semester in high school.

And Seebecks have a really

wonderful student they got from France.

He's from Paris.

I'm just worried about the

stresses you have in your life,

having to drive all of us around.

There's no stress in my life.

I like driving everybody.

Well, maybe I should... get a car.

I mean... she can stay in my room.

We got to get another car.

We have a car.

We have a nice Jeep.

Did any of you just sent out,

like a, an email for this letter.

This shows...

that we care.

- You got anything better than that?

- No.

I mean, if I got into Stanford or Berkeley,

and especially if the offer is better...

Yeah, exactly.

Obviously I will work really, really hard.

And achieve swimming excellence.

Gosh. I'm getting very nervous now!

- Just relax.

- Stop it.

It's always getting over me.

Stop. That's going over.

Yeah, that is okay.

Look at that.

Precision and skill.


Quack, quack.

You wanna clean all this up too before she comes?

Yeah. I was going to.

Hold on tight.

Ok... alright.

Now what about all this?

I am going to do it later.

No no... let's do it now.

- Looks good.

- Thanks for sharing your room.

This is your flight?

Oh yes, Sophie!



- Hello!

- Welcome.

- How are you?

- I'm great. How are you feeling?

This is Keith.


I 'm Sophie.

- How was the flight?

- Good, thank you.

Very good.



- How are you?

- Good, good!

Have you been to Manhattan before?

No, I haven't.

- You've never been to New York, right?
