(EXHALES)

Well, good news.

I found your car keys.

(CHUCKLES)

That's where I left them.

You know, you have the

prostate of an 18-year-old.

Nice! I'd rather have

his dick,

but you get what you get.

Next time,

buy me dinner first.

(ALL LAUGHING)

That's a good one.

I like that joke.

I hadn't heard that before.

ETHAN:
Come on.

Why do I have to go?

KATHERINE:
Because

it's his weekend

and you're not missing

your grandmother's wedding.

ETHAN:
It's no fun there.

Last time he made me watch

an entire Super Bowl

from 1979.

Who watches a 30-year-old

football game?

He's always angry

or pissed off...

KATHERINE:
Don't say that

about your father.

ETHAN:
It's not my fault

he's an asshole.

KATHERINE:
We're not

having this discussion.

Go get your bag.

(DOOR SLAMS)

TERRY BRADSHAW:
(ON TV)

Pick Enterprise.

We'll pick you up.

MALE NARRATOR:

In New York City,

the dedicated detectives

who investigate

these vicious felonies

are members of

an elite squad known as

the Special Victims Unit.

These are their stories.

(BOTH LAUGHING)

PETER:
Hello.

HELEN:
Ah, there you are.

Hello.

- Hey, Peter.

- Sweetheart.

Mom, you look radiant.

- Thank you.

- Hi, Sheila.

These are for Mom's bunions.

If you want her

on her feet in two hours,

you'll make sure

she wears those.

HELEN:
Thank you, darling.

That was sweet.

You know, Peter,

if ever you start questioning

your sexuality,

I'd love to introduce you

to my son, Jason.

- He's got a tight little butt.

- HELEN:
Ooh.

I'll be downstairs

if you need me.

- Thank you, Sheila.

- HELEN:
Wow.

- Good to know.

- (DOOR CLOSES)

Good for Jason.

(CHUCKLING) Where's Ethan?

Uh, he's here somewhere.

Happy as a clam.

Oh, don't be discouraged.

You're a great dad.

Just love him

and be there for him.

And maybe loosen up a little.

I'm loose.

I mean...

I'm loose, whatevs.

Have you seen

your brother yet?

Hmm? Oh, you invited him?

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

Life is so crazy, man.

One minute, you're napping

in Maui, unemployed,

uneducated,

30 bucks to your name,

the next minute, some guy's

walking up to you,

asking if he can

put your picture

on a barbeque sauce bottle.

And the next minute

they're giving you three cents

for every bottle they sell.

And the next minute

they're selling 30 million

of these bad boys.

BOTH:
And then

the next minute...

You're wearing

a white leather jacket

and white high-tops

to your mom's wedding.

Pete! (CHUCKLING)

(PETER GRUNTING)

It is so good to see you.

I haven't seen this guy

in two years.

Four. Actually.

- Has it been that long?

- Mmm-hmm.

Shut the front door.

Are you messing with me?

He loves messing with me.

- Are you messing with me?

- I'm not.

God, you got to

come over to Hawaii.

When are you gonna visit?

- Yeah...

- Hey, Kaylani! Come here!

I want you to meet someone

really special to me.

Someone I've been

sleeping with exclusively

for the past six months.

Wow, six whole months?

That's what I'm saying.

It's really special.

Aloha, Peter.

Hi.

Oh, okay.

(KAYLANI INHALES DEEPLY)

(KYLE INHALES DEEPLY)

I can feel

your brother inside you.

I am inside you.

You are?

- Yeah.

- Hmm.

We're twins.

That's called a Honi.

That is a sacred

Hawaiian greeting

that you just got.

Yeah.

Is that right?

So,

how psyched are you for Mom

finding true love again?

It's awesome.

God, I just wish Dad could've

been here to see this.

- (SIGHS)

- ETHAN:
Yo, Uncle Kyle!

Yeah?

You got to see this.

What's your boy's name?

It's Ethan.
