?Daddy what's happening?

Just ...

Sit ...

I will return later.

Please, have a seat.

Thank you.

Leave behind Manhattan Ashborough

It will be a major cultural change for you ...

Cayle Doctor, is not it?

Yes, but I ...

I think it is best for

my family.

It was my wife who I hear on

this practice by a friend of hers.

I see.

If what you're looking space

definitely you find it here.

I'm afraid there is not much

in the way of emotion.

Yes, but I think it had

enough excitement in the city ...

and we are ready for a bit

peace and tranquility.


Well then.

I'll get right to the point, Doctor Cayle.

The death of my husband not me

It was easy.

Yes, I'm sure.

Can I ask what happened?

A rabid dog.

Neil used to walk the trails

behind the house before dinner.

The animal was captured and removed,

so you do not worry.

All right.

For my own closure.

I want to sell ...

The house and its practice immediately.

If the want is yours.


Mrs. Farris.


I'm sure you and your family

They will be very happy here in Ashborough.

Yes me too.

And do not worry about local,

they get used to you.


It is a small town, Doctor Cayle.

They are not used to ...



You stay in the village?

Of course.

I can not imagine myself living


Do not let the dog go up

to the bed.


Will you see a playground for Page?

Bigger than you can imagine.

You should go finish

pack your wrists.


Let Page.

Are you ...

Sure this is what you want?

It is.

So what happens?

It is that we have been talking

of this for so long.

I really never thought we would go.

It's just a big change.

- It is.


Have I printed the map?

There is a road only in this

people love and it is.



Is is the waterfall?

- Yes.

Is there a waterfall?

-. Yes he is.

Do not you see?

- Yes, that is so cute.

Are you happy that we did this?

I could not be happier.

Mommy, I do not feel well.

Jess, baby, what's up?

I have a pain in my stomach.

I want to go home.


This is our home now baby.

Do you agree with that?

Papi is good.



- Michael!

Jess, dear ...


Are you okay?

Why do you laugh?


Honey, what are you looking for?

The keys of the house.

Please, do not go to our

new house covered vomiting.

Just change your pants here.

All right.

Daddy, that's disturbing.

Look who feels better now.

Good morning, I heard you

It is the new doctor.

It appears to be in its first


Yes, I ...

I think so.

- Ha-ah.

Is this your dog?

We find along the way.

Thank you.

Thank you, I'm ...

Michael Cayle.

Phil Deighton.

This is my grandson Tyler ...

We live across the street.

This is my wife Christine.


- Hello, how are you?

And you are?

This is Jessica.

She does not feel well.

Tyler, Jessica give him back his dog.

What is the name of this big guy?

Jimmy Page.

We would be proud to have them

as guests for lunch.

To know my wife Rosy.

And we have enough towels in the

bathroom for you to clean.

No, no, no.

I do not want to cause trouble.

No. No problem.

Come with us.

it's okay

- All right.


Thank you.

By Train.

No, Page.

Sorry, I'll put in the car.

Do not worry about it.

do not worry.

The bathroom is on the second floor.

On the left.

Thank you.

Mrs. Deighton.

Hi, I'm Michael Cayle,

I'm the new doctor.

I hope I have not bothered.

You can not help me.

I heard that the church is planning

have a party in your honor.

Did you hear that Michael?

Actually we are not ...


It's actually more

as a social group.

We would be more than happy to attend.

Some tea?

No, thanks.

Maybe we can meet his wife.


She is still sleeping.

She will be one of

his most loyal patients.

I hope it's not serious.

I fear it is cancer.

That's a beautiful family photo.

Thank you.

Is that your mother Tyler?

- Yes.

She is no longer with us.

Where did he go?

She died last year.

I'm sorry.

Tyler, why do not you pills

your grandmother when she rises up?

I think we should leave.

The move came soon

and I do not want to lose.


He has not eaten anything yet.

I had a big breakfast.

Now they are not unknown.

There will always be a cup of tea list.

Please tell your wife

We would be delighted to meet you.

Of course.

Goodbye Tyler.

Thanks for everything.

Anything just ask.

You know, now that you mention it ...

We have to turn our

light and our cable.

Let me see.

I'll give you the number for light.

All right.

But ...

No cable here.


Well, Ashborough is about community.

But the library has a good

collection of videotapes.

So ...

All right.

Thanks again.

You're welcome.

Until then.

Wise think that little girl

that one day she would marry a ....

Beautiful ...

And strong Doctor.

She knew.

You were always part of the plan.

What is that?

It is the curfew.

When you were in the bathroom said Phil

that the village has a curfew.

Everyone in

their homes at 8.

Are you kidding?

That is too much.

I like.

Family first.


Family first.

Want help with this?

No, that can wait.

Let's relax.

Thank you.

For our new house.



You're still thinking

this afternoon.

I tell you, I think he wanted

I got into that room.

If he wanted you to see his wife,

I'm sure he'd asked.
