So many hours spent

Looking for answers

Turning the pages

Through all

your chapters

Hoping to find

your place.

Somewhere so right

Someone to love you

Somewhere to run

You can escape to

And know

that you are safe

Yeah, you have

found your place

Right here

Right here

A place where you know

You're always home

Right here

Right here

No matter where

you go...

Oh, hey Sandy, how's Tom?

Hi Mary.

Oh, he's great, thanks.

Are you thinking of

a trip to Bali?

Dreaming about it, maybe.

Well, go in the Spring

before the high season starts.

It's less crowded and

the weather is gorgeous.


Have you been?

No, but I have read that

book from cover to cover

so it's almost like

I've been there.

And while you're in

the area, you know...

Australia is not that far away

and it's absolutely beautiful.

Be a shame to miss it.

You've been to Australia?


Another great book.

Ok, well, good to know.

Let me know if

you need anything.

Ok. Will do.



I just poured that for myself.

Mary, don't you

remember anything

mom and dad taught

us about sharing?

Wait a second,

weren't you supposed to have

study group today?

I did.

We quizzed each other while

we were shooting hoops.



Tyler, I love that you're going

to business school, I do.

But you need to take

it seriously.

I know.

I am.

Ok, well dribbling hoops

doesn't sound like you're-

Dribbling hoops?

Wow, you really are a sports

nut, aren't you?

Did you check the

year-end reports?

I did.

They are not bad.

Not bad...

Mary, the first thing they teach

us in business school

is numbers in red

are not good.

It's a slow time.

It'll pick up.

Talk to mom and dad?


And you're not going to, either,

because the store is ours,

they're retired,

and this red stuff?

It's our problem now.

Well then we really need to

talk about updating the store.

We have a website.

We have a Facebook page.

So we're competitive

with 10 years ago.

Tyler, On the Same Page has

been here for almost 40 years

because we're traditional.

This is a place where people

can come in and pick up a book

and have a conversation about

it with another human being.

If there was another human

being here, that is.

Look, this is a book store.

It's not a web arcade digital

virtual cyber hacking zone.

You have no idea what

you're saying, do you?

No, I- I don't.

The point is we haven't survived

for almost 40 years

by trying to be something

that we're not.

We've done it by being

who we are.

Then why are you meeting

with Janet Dunleavy?

Because we went

to college together.

And she runs a big PR firm.

Alright, fine.

She offered to help out with

the 40th anniversary party.

Wow. She must be a really

big deal if you're going

all the way downtown.

I mean, that is a big adventure

for you.

Is this the part where you're

taking things more seriously?

Oh man, he did it again.

Who did what?

Adam Clayborn.


The Denver Royals

hockey player.

He got into it with a ref

last night and got booted

from the game.

Hockey. That's the one where

you throw the old pig skin

down the field, yes?

Sometimes I can't tell

if you're joking.

I just don't care about some

guy in cleats getting kicked

out of the game.

Skates. Hockey is played

on skates.

I know what hockey is.

Do you?

Go away.


Uncle Adam!


Good morning, Graham.

Can we play monster?

Yeah, sure. Yeah.




Ok, little guy,

let's get you dressed

so Uncle Adam can

get some sleep.


You know we do have

a guest room.

What can I say?

I like sofas.

Sure you do.

Come on.

It's a little early for monster,

isn't it?

It's never too early

for games that amuse


Or the grown-ups

who act like them.

It is too early for

a lecture, though.

Maybe you should have slept

at your place instead of

on my couch

Press was camped

out at my place downtown...

I wasn't in the mood.

Yeah, I know.

Erica keeps calling

your phone

and when you don't pick up

she calls mine.

Over and over and over again.

Did you tell her I was here?

No, but I'm pretty sure

she knows.

She's got powers

or something.

Chuck, she's the president

of a hockey team.

She's not a wizard.

She's also really mad

at you.

Erica is always mad at me.

Yeah, 'cause you keep

causing trouble

and costing us games.

No, it's because we dated

years ago

and she still hasn't

gotten over the fact

that I broke up with her.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's

the losing the game part.

Adam, you've been ejected

form three games this season.

What happened to you?


When we were on the team in

Texas we were the wild ones.

Well, I got traded to Denver,

I met Sarah,

got married and had a kid.

I grew up.

Maybe you should try it.


And lose my child-like sense

of wonder?

It's so quiet out here

in the suburbs.

Why don't you move

back downtown?

Because I am happy.

Again, maybe you

should try it.

Look, I'm the one who

had to convince Erica

to bring you here

because I promised her that

you have changed.

This is why you got kicked

off the Texas team,

Seattle and New Jersey-

New Jersey was not my fault.

The guy on the other

team started it.

Well, according to you,

it's always the other guy.

[phone ringing]

If Erica cuts you

from the team-

Erica's not gonna cut me.

Ok, answer the phone then.
