Ok. Get in.

( bumps head )


What's up, big Jay?

Hey, Mr. Slade.

Hi, Miss Lisa.


Hey Summer.

You know, why do you always

wait outside

when we come and pick you up?

You never let me in your house.

Are you- are you embarrassed

of me or something?

Like, what if I have to pee,


No, man.

I just- you know, my house

is a trashy piece of ding dong.

No, my house is a way

trashier piece of ding dong.

There's no way, man.

Yeah, no, 'cause we're way

poorer than you-

Hey, Colin, come on.

We're not that poor.

And stop saying "ding dong".

You sound super lame.

Hey, there we go.

Ha ha!

Jesus Christ, Roger!

Don't text and drive, dad!

I got it!

I'm not texting, ok?

I'm checking my emails.

Alright, guys.

Let's go eat.

Summer, wake up

your brother.


Oh, no.

Oh, come on, honey.

The Hilltop Diner I'm sure

is good enough

for your distinguished palate.

Yeah, Lisa, I hear that they

serve their chicken nuggets

with caviar.

Mmm, nuggets.

Eh, I'm not hungry.

Sure you don't want


Yeah, a top off.

Nobody likes a morning drunk,


Nobody likes a smart-ass,


I like morning drunk Lisa.

I'm on vaycay mode.

Great catch, dad.

I hate you.

Be quick.

I'm gonna post that.

What'd you say?

I said "great catch".

And "I hate you".

( door opens )

Oh, wow.

Check out all the missing bros.

I mean, ugh.

One dude called himself "Gator".

What a dick.

Come on, Colin.

Don't be an a**hole.

Those guys are missing.

Dad, did you crack a window

open for Lisa?

Don't disrespect your maybe

future stepmom, please.


Oh, seriously dad,

don't settle.

What? She's nice.

Yeah, but so was Dolores

and Denise...

And Shannon and Lily.

Yes, and Michelle, too.


Oh, yeah, Michelle.

She was hot.

She was super hot.

Really hot.

I blew that one.

I blew it.

Yeah, it sucks.

And what can I get ya?

Oh, hi.
