Andy, are you ready?

Get up here.

I'm done with my boat, mom.

We're gonna

be late to the airport.

Please bring your bag down.

I can't find it.

Did you look under your bed?

What are you doing up there?

Babe you got the passports?

Yeah, I got them.

Daddy, daddy look.

Oh, yeah it looks good,

the sail looks great.

- You almost got it.

That's good.

I checked the weather,

not a drop of rain all week.

I know, that's great.


Can you take the luggage out?

Honey, can you guys take

the luggage outside, please?

- Andy where's your bag?

- I was saying, he has to...

Andy. Where's your bag, sweetie?

Yeah, I saw the X-ray.

Well, schedule an mri

and let's just wait

to see what the results

of the blood test are

and we'll talk next week, okay?

Email me his results.

Yeah, thank you. All right.

- Daddy.

- Yeah?

Are we gonna go on jet skis?

Because Colin said

he went on a lake

and his dad let him

drive a jet ski.

Six year old Colin rode

a jet ski by himself?

He went 100 miles per hour.

And he also said

that his dad can

kick your ass because

you're a doctor.

First of all do not repeat

bad words after Colin.

Secondly, doctors are pretty

tough, you'd be surprised.

And I highly doubt Colin

rode a jet ski by himself.

Then promise me we

will go together then.

I promise.

Kevin, Andy,

so you're finally leaving.

Lucas, yeah.

Uh, Jules found a really

good deal in the Caribbean.

We're gonna spend some

quality time with the family.

Oh, that's what

vacations are for.

And only because of you,

Margie and I were able to spend

our last vacation together.

I know, I know, it's okay,

you don't have to thank me.

By the way Julie mentioned

you can't start

the lawnmower again.

I'll tell you what,

I could show you how to fix it.

It's simple,

it'll only take a second.

It's a small engine,

and they're all the same.

I'm... I'm on vacation.

I'm not fixing

anything right now.

Andy your father

can fix a human heart

but he can't fix the lawnmower.

Be careful, some areas are

not very safe out there.

Thanks, Lucas,

I'll keep that in mind.

- Toodle-loo.

- Have a nice week.

Kevin, slip the

concierge a little

something extra

he'll upgrade your room.

Money... that's how

everything works down there.



Au revoir.

- Daddy, what's a concierge?

- Uh...

Daddy, is treasure island real?

Yeah, for sure,

hundreds of years ago

pirates used to hide

treasure on deserted islands.


Mm... so no one else could

figure out where they hid it.

Why didn't they keep their treasure

at home with their families?

Pirates don't have,

homes, you know, or families.

If they didn't

have homes or family

why did they need treasure?

That's a good question.

Hey, come here.

What do you think?

It's pretty amazing.

It is pretty good. Yeah.

- Welcome.

- Hi.

May I have your name and

reservation number please?

Kevin Riley.

Uh, I don't think I'm really

particularly good at this

but if you were willing

to upgrade our room,

I would be willing to compensate

you, personally, financially.

Certainly, let's see

what we have available.

Thanks, man.

So what do you think

of the honeymoon suite?

It's pretty great,

nice to finally see one.

Oh, come on.

Our honeymoon suite was nice.

I'm sorry our honeymoon suite

did you just say?

Our honeymoon suite

was a tiny bed

in the back of an rv

on the way to Mexico.

So? That sounds like fun,

it was great.

- It was the worst trip ever, that's what that is.

- I thought it was fun.

I know you did.

Love you.

- Hi, there.

- Good morning, how are you doing?
