Friends and Family

Synopsis: Children and parents. In New York City, Stephen and Danny live well: they're smooth, cool, in love, and good at what they do. Stephen's Midwestern parents pay them a surprise visit. Meanwhile, Jenny and Damon tell their parents they are engaged: Matt's parents, Midwestern paramilitary fanatics, take it as a sign to gather their group to invade New York. Jenny's father is the local Mob boss who employs Stephen and Danny as enforcers. He's unhappy that Jenny is marrying someone who is neither Sicilian nor Catholic. Stephen's parents know he's gay, they just don't know what his job is. Here come the parents; will the children survive? All roads lead to the engagement party.

I'm old-fashioned.

I love the moonlight.

I love

the old-fashioned things,

the sound of rain

upon a windowpane,

the starry song

that April sings.

This year's fancies

are passing fancies.

But sighing sighs

and holding hands,

these, my heart understands.

I'm old-fashioned,

but I don't mind it.

That's how I want to be

as long as you'll agree

to stay old-fashioned.

as long as you'll agree

to stay old-fashioned

with me.

Szval, Richard,

elrulnd neknk, hogy

mi is lesz a holnapi rovatban?

Mg nem rtam meg.

Mg nem rtad meg?

Would you believe that

nothing of interest has happened

in the last 24 hours?

If there aren't

any scandals

by midnight, I'm going to have

to make something up.

You know how I hate

to do that.

I have missed you.

I haven't seen you

all summer,

and, oh, my god,

you've both got

more gorgeous.

I hate you.

Hi, Richard.

Look what we brought.



How is he?

My father?

He's fine, Stephen.

He's fine.

What, do you think he's going

to evaporate if you go

one day

without seeing him?

Bruno here yet?

And ruin his entrance?

You know he never gets here

before you two.

Fasten your seatbelts.

It's going to be

a bumpy night.

This season, I am paying

for my ticket, Stephen.

I mean it.

For Christ's sake, Cheryl,

let them pay for it.

With what my father

pays them,

believe me,

they can afford it.

And we're worth

every penny.

Says who?

Oh, I don't know; your father.

Your mother,

your brothers.

Shall we?

I can't wait to see

the look on Stephen's face.


What's the matter?

I'm just not sure

about this.

Jack, this is

your birthday present.

This is what you said

you wanted.

Visiting him

is what I wanted.

Making it a surprise

was your idea.

You remember when he was little.

He loved surprises.

Ada, he's not

a kid anymore.

He's all grown up.

So you didn't think the soprano

sounded a little flat.

She sounded fine to me.

I think

she sounded flat.

She was fine.

But Ricci was magnificent.


Excuse us.

Nobody sees Mr. Ricci

during intermission.

Max, I told you I didn't want

to see anybody.

Bravo, Maestro.

You were


Oh, boys.

Where's Max?


My bodyguard.

He's not out here.

You got a bodyguard?

Make enemies

with the wrong people...

How's your pop,


He's good,

real good.

He listens to your records

all the time.

Pardon my eating

like this, boys.

Boys, excuse me.

My love to your parents.

I mean that.

Boys, I said

please excuse me.

You gamble

too much, Maestro.

Even money you don't have,

you lose,

borrow to pay it back.

And the worst part is,

you end up owing

your friends money.

What the hell

is it to you?

You were supposed to pay

Victor Patrizzi $40,000

in August.

It's now September.

To treat a man

like Don Patrizzi in this way,

well, it shows

a lack of respect.


I should give

an asshole like that respect?

Do you have any money with you?

You usually carry a blank check.

This is what

Patrizzi sends me,

a couple of fairies

in diapers?

Now, you listen

to me, girls.

You tell Victor Patrizzi

he'll get his money

when I'm good and ready!

Now get out

before Max throws you out.

Relax, Maestro.

Breathe through your nose.

The blank check,

where is it?

Through your nose,
