I don't know, he just seems to be

working us a lot harder lately.

Practices are getting a lot rougher

and a lot of exercise and a lot of running.

You know how I love running. I don't know.

Yeah, I heard there was a party going on

tonight, I don't know if I want to go.

I don't know if I want to sit

around Robbie's basement

while you guys make out

in the laundry room.

Which Mark, Mark Mendola?

It doesn't matter.

I'm babysitting. Yes, again.

I don't know maybe. How late

are you gonna be hanging out?

- Hi, sorry.

- I gotta go.

Do you know where the post office is?

The post office?

I'm not real good with directions.

Oh, hey. Can you help this lady

get to the post office?

- Are you Anna?

- Yeah!

Jacob, can you come down here?

Your dad should be home

any minute with a new sitter.

Get down here and help me

with your brother.

Bye, Mom!


- You must be Anna.

- And you're Mr. Thompson?

- Yeah, yeah, call me Dan though.

- It's so nice to meet you.

Yeah, Maggie has been a lot less reliable

since she got her braces off.

I don't know what's going on with that.

It's me and my wife's anniversary tonight,

so you're really saving our butts here.

- Happy anniversary.

- Thank you. Thank you.

So, the kids have had play dates

with the Abbott girls.

Ashley and... what's the little

quiet one's name?

- I forget.

- I just call them sleepy and grumpy.

Sleepy and grumpy, that's good.

Yeah, well, our kids,

they tend to be more energetic.

They're good kids, great kids.

They're just...

And then there's...

then there's our oldest.

He's 11, he just started

middle school and...

you know... stones are dropping.

- You know what I mean?

- It's okay, I can handle an 11 year old.

Yeah, Maggie said you were

quite the... child herder.

You got a Facebook page and everything.

- Did you see my page?

- No, no. I don't...

I barely go on the computer.

Yeah, I don't have one of those.

It's a little too much sharing.

But Joyce might've.

And what age are the other two?

Sally just turned 9,

she just had her birthday.

And Christopher is 4.

He's a... he's a cute little guy.

He won't give you much of a problem.

They're good ages.

- Give it back, Christopher!

- Boys, slow it down.


- Is the new babysitter a girl?

- Yes, she's a girl.

Because I like it when I'm not

the only one all the time.

- You can't catch me!

- Guys!

You guys. No, no, no. No jumping.

Come on, keep it downstairs.

Jacob! Hey!

- Jacob!

- I'm okay, Mommy.

- Little idiot!

- Jacob.

- You know what?

- What?

Hand it over.


- Hand it over!

- He won't leave me alone!

The kid won't leave me alone,

it's not my fault.

Give me the game.

- Till the weekend.

- For what?

I can't keep doing this with you.

You want me to keep paying

for babysitters till you're in college?


Like it or not, you're the big brother,

and I need you step up.

You're not a little anymore.

- Jakey's gotta take care of us.

- Shut it, meat bag.


Hey, Jake. Jake, you there?

- Pick up!

- Hey. Yeah. Howie. What do you want?

Wanna come watch me play

The New Dark Realm?

No, no, I can't. Getting babysat tonight.

Maggie's coming over?

She so fine now she got her braces off.

No, not Maggie. Someone new.

Her best friend or something.

My mom let's me watch my sister

after school till she gets home from work

- and I'm born three months after you.

- Good for you.

Hey, so, remember how my cousins

went on vacation to Nevada?

Well, they brought me back something

that's gonna blow your hole.

- What is it?

- I stashed it in your tree house.

- Meet me there after bedtime.

- Alright.

I'll think about it.

Over and out.


Hon, how we doing?

Hon? Okay.

Hi, I'm Joyce.

Hi. It's so nice to meet you.

Your house is beautiful.

Sorry it's kind of a mess.

- I'll be right down.

- Okay.

- Can I get a hug before we go?

- Daddy!

Thank you. Thank you. I'll miss you, too.

- You smell funny, Dad.

- It's Cologne. Your mom got it for me.

- What's cologne?

- It's like perfume for Daddies.

Okay, guys. This is Anna,

she's your babysitter for tonight.

- Anna!

- Hi.

- I'm Sally.

- And I'm Christopher!

- That's my brother Christopher.

- Hey, Christopher.

- Oh, who's that guy?

- That's Glow Nose.

Glow Nose. Okay.

- He was my... No, he was Jake's...

- He was my...

...when he was a little kid, and then

he was Sally's, and now he's mine.

- He looks like he's had a lot of love.

- Yes, he does.

Chris and Sal are babies.

I don't need her here.

You know, this a really special night

for your mom and me.

When are you gonna be back?

You'll be asleep.

Get downstairs and meet the new sitter.

They already ate dinner but if they

get hungry they can have a snack.

There's cookies, crackers,

gummies are in the cupboard.

There should be some baby carrots

in the crisper. Yes, there are.

- I left the number for the restaurant...

- I have a pet hamster.

- And the number for my cell phone.

- His name's Admiral Wubbles.

Yeah? You'll have to introduce me.

- Do the kids have their own phones?

- "No cell phones till high school."

That's right, family rule. But feel free to

call my cell anytime, with any questions.

- Okay.

- He's coming down.

What else does she need to know?

Let's see.

They will probably try to convince you

to let them play in the garage.

- Do not let them.

- What's in the garage?
