Lisa Johnson.


Me and Edgar found

the pirate treasure.

Meet us down in the secret cave.

We're gonna spend all

Sunday morning...

Hey, watch out for blinky, okay?

He always traps

you on your left.


Lisa, you messed up my game!

Here's your walkie.

Stop waking me up with it, brat.

Edgar left it, not me.

Well, tell Edgar he's annoying.

You tell him.

He's your imaginary friend.

He's not imaginary.

Lisa, go down to the basement and

start the laundry, will you?

I did it yesterday,

you just don't

remember me doing it.

Stop being a smart aleck.

Buster brown, where's

your glasses?

I lost them.

Well, find them, pronto.

Lisa, have you decided where we're

gonna go for your birthday tomorrow?

Ask me tomorrow.

Okay. Well, I hope we get there,

'cause the car's not running.

Your dad's been trying to fix it all day.

He won't fix it.

Laundry, please.

Cold water only. The hot

wears out the clothes.

I don't think it's possible

for our clothes to wear out,


Cold water.


Not a smart idea to go anywhere

today, pal, with all this fog.

Stay inside, okay?

Play some games with Robbie or

practice your clarinet.

I'm sure everyone else

in the neighborhood

is staying inside today, too.

Even the phones are out.

Something wrong Lis?




Everything's fine.

I mean, you wouldn't

believe me anyway so...

This is the story of Peter

and the wolf.

Early one morning, Peter opened

the gate and went out into

the big, green meadow.


Come downstairs, will you?

Your father and I

want to have a talk.

Your mom says

you've been acting kind of

funny all morning.

Funny how?

Well, for one thing,

some clothes are missing

from the laundry.

Do you know where they are?

Honestly, I really don't know

where they went.

The truth is, they're

gone every day.

And what does that mean,

"gone every day"?


it's like mom's pancakes.

Every morning, she makes them

for breakfast, and you're always

trying to fix the car, which for

some mysterious reason has

always stopped running.

Then, Mac and cheese for lunch.

Then, we have meat loaf

for dinner every night.

And at 8:
00, we watch,

"murder, she wrote" and go to

bed, wake up tomorrow, and

do the exact same thing.

Well, you and Robbie have school

tomorrow, and I have work, so...

There is no school.

There is no work.

And what about your birthday?

That's not tomorrow either?


Never comes.

It's always the day

before I turn 16.

It's pretty frustrating.

I'm really trying to

understand where this is

all coming from, pal.

Are... are you bored

with your life?

Is that it?

I mean, are you anxious

about something?

- Is it a boy?

- No, no, mum! God, no!

You just don't understand it,

like, at all!

Well, explain it to us.

Maybe we can understand.

That's the thing,

is that I have tried to

explain it many times,

and you guys just never remember

and you don't believe me.

Believe what?

That we're stuck in this house

and we're never gonna leave.


Because all of us...

Shut up, Lisa, shut up!

Enough is enough, Lisa!


Hey, hey.

It's okay, buckaroo.


Your sister is just

playing a silly game.

Lisa, you tell your brother

that everything is okay.


I'm gonna go finish playing

the clarinet in my room.

Let me know when the Mac

and cheese is ready.

Safe-deposit key...

is that what you were looking

for, captain downing?

Or should I say, Mr. downing

or whatever your name is?

Lisa Johnson.

Me and Edgar found

the pirate treasure.

Meet us down in the secret cave.

We're gonna spend all
