What?

BETH:
The music, if that's what it is.

Turn it down.

SARAH:
Why?

BETH:
Has anyone let the dog out yet?

ANDY:
It's Sarah's turn! I did it last time!

BETH:
It takes, what, two seconds?

ANDY:

Rusty, no! Leave it alone!

Come on!

SARAH:

Andy, stop it.

Andy! Mom, tell Andy to get that thing

out of here. It's screwing up the TV.

ANDY:

Idiot.

Andy, a little help here, okay?

SARAH:
Moron.

-Idiot moron.

- Moron idiot.

-Nobody's an idiot.

ANDY:
Except for her.

-Nobody's a moron.

ANDY:
Except for her.

SARAH:
Andy, stop it!

I'm trying to watch this.

Those two home together all week?

- There's no school till Monday.

-Oh, boy. What's your day like?

Finish the details on the Morgan house.

They're pouring the footings today.

Then I have to find a guitar teacher

for Sarah, pay some bills...

...and schlepping the kids.

You should get yourself a hobby,

keep yourself busy.

- I already have a hobby.

-Yeah?

And it's taking care of you.

I don't deserve you.

No, you don't.

We owe Arlin and Vee a dinner.

Wanna do it this week?

Well, they're home this week.

I just wanna be with the kids.

SARAH:
Mom!

-Really?

SARAH:

Tell Andy to get that thing out of here!

You should have Marci drop

my blue suit off at the cleaners.

BETH:

Marci's in Manila till the 26th.

Here, sport, give me this for a second.

- Mom! Excuse me, does anybody care?

-This is what's doing it.

Put this in my office.

I'll show you how we can fix it.

Okay? And, yes, I do care.

- Good bye.

-Bye, Jack.

ANDY:
Bye, Dad.

JACK:
Bye, Andy.

Don't torture your sister.

Sarah, this dog needs to go out.

Don't forget his new collar.

- Sarah.

-Bye, Jack.

MAN [OVER RADIO]:

--getting a break in the weather...

...before getting hit

by a couple of storms.

That'll make the drive more difficult.

Looks like smooth sailing this morning

heading into downtown Seattle.

We've been seeing slowdowns and heavy

traffic just about everywhere else...

- Morning.

-Morning, Richard.

- Morning, Cindy. How are you?

-Morning, Jack. Great, thanks.

How do I say this, Bobby?

- Um, no.

-Come on, Janet. I don't see why not.

Look, Bobby, here's how this works.

You ask me out, which you did.

I say no, which I did.

You say, "Okay," and ask somebody

else. You don't keep asking me.

At what point does it become

sexual harassment?

Right about now, Bobby.

- Mr. Stanfield.

-Morning, boss.

- Kid's persistent.

-I don't know why.

- The usual reason, I suppose.

-Have you seen Ravi yet?

No, I'm on my way now, though.

Don't forget, merger meeting.

- Nice flowers.

-Born-again Bobby.

- Maybe he's trying to save your soul.

-He'd need bigger blossoms than that.

- Good morning, Betty.

-Morning.

- How we doing?
