"Madison, Delaware. " Wow.

Mom, are you positive there

weren't any other places

looking for

vice principals?

Like where?

Guantanamo Bay?

Ooh, too hot.

North Korea?


They didn't call me back.


This is it.

Come on, come on.

Look. A yard.

You'd never get this

in New York.

You don't have to keep

selling me on this place.

I'm staying because I love you.

Aw, I love you too.

And I looked into it.

Legally, I can't live

on my own until I'm 18.

Look at this kitchen.

It's bigger

than our apartment.

We don't cook.

Well, look at all

this counter space

to put the takeout on.


Do you hear that?

No, I don't hear



Live from New York,

it's my sister Gale!

With special guest,

my nephew Zach.

Get in here with a hug!

Hey. Oh.

Oh, it's an SNL reference.

Oh, yeah.

You lived in New York.

Okay, yeah.

Oh, my goodness!

Look at you!

You're not

in any color.


We should change that.

Oh, my God.

It's good to see you.

Wow, you too.

Okay. Let me take him in.

Oh, my gosh. He gets more

handsome every time I see him.

So good-looking.

Thank you, Aunt Lorraine.

He's just a beautiful boy.

Thank God, because you were such

an ugly baby.

There it is.

Oh, Lorraine.

What? It's fine.

He's handsome now.

It's not like

he's gonna go ugly,

handsome and then

back to ugly.

No. The danger's past.

Oh, I almost forgot.

I got a present for you,

because I'm a cool aunt.

This is from my new

signature men's line.


Check it out.


It's limited edition,

so you're not gonna see

a lot of men

wearing that hat.

Yeah, no, I can't imagine

anyone would be wearing it.

It's so limited edition.

Try it on.

Make sure it fits.

Try it on right now? Okay.

Yeah, take her for a spin.

Vroom, vroom, vroom.


Oh, yes. Look at that.

I mean, come on. That is it.


Um, I'm gonna go unload some

boxes now, and see you around.

Oh, honey. Leave the hat on.

I don't want you to burn.

Mm. And you look good with it


Thank you. Cool.


So you're the new neighbor?

Yeah. Nice to meet you.

How long was the drive

from New York?

No. I can just tell

by the pretty hat

that you have.

Oh, no. This... No.

This is... This is actually

a gift from my aunt.

It's also

a gift for me

and everyone who gets

to see you wearing it.

I'm Zach, by the way.

I'm Hannah.


I gotta go.

Good talk.

Hi. Hey, we're just moving in.

Just... Just me and my mom.

This hat was a gift.

You see that fence?

Do you see the fence?

Uh, yes.

Stay on your side of it.

You stay away from my daughter,

you stay away from me...

and we won't have

a problem.

Well, just met our neighbor.

He's a big teddy bear.

Oh, Mr. Shivers?

Yeah. He moved to town

a few years ago.

Very mysterious.

Very sexy.

I love his scent.

It's like mint and BO.

It works.

Yeah. Not my type.

I remember that day.


You okay, sweetheart?

Yeah. Yeah, sorry. Um...

I'm gonna go get a head start

decorating my room.

Knock it off

my bucket list.

How's he doing?

Oh, it's been hard.

He's putting up a wall.

Hopefully, a change of scenery

will help.

How are you doing?

Hopefully, a change of scenery

will help.

- All right, Zach.

- Let's see what you got.

With the fastball.

Two's a curve.

Gotta get up.

You gotta give me the sign.

There you go. Oh!


Oh, see?

Dad's not perfect.


Dad can get one drop.

All right.

Read the signs.

It's all just to block.

Don't wanna jump up.

That's how the fastballs

get by.

All right. Get ready.

Go fast now. Okay?

Honey? You okay?

Um, yeah. Just found
