We begin today our celebration

of the sacrament of baptism.

We pray for these children, set

them free from original sin

make them a temple of your glory

and send the Holy Spirit

to dwell with them.

We ask this through

Christ our Lord. Amen.

Look at Jenny with that baby.

Reject sin.

Don't start, Rose.

Start what?

You know.

Well, look at her.

And that clock has started

ticking. What's she waiting for?

A husband.

I know that, Eddie.

I just don't understand why

she hasn't found anybody yet.

Profess your faith

in Jesus Christ.

This is the faith of the church.

This is the faith in which these

children are about to baptized.

Do you reject Satan?

- I do.

- I do.

And all his empty promises?

- I do.

- I do.

And all his works?

- I do.

- I do.

You have to answer.

What if I don't

believe in Satan?

Or that all the works

attributed to him are evil?

Oh just answer, will you?

I do.

What was that all about?

I don't know.

She feels guilty

about something.

Guilty? About what?

I don't know.

But she feels guilty.

And the bread's

on top of the microwave

and it goes in the blue basket.

I know where

the bread goes, Mom.

I used to live here remember?

And I already

put it in the red basket.

But I always serve it

in the blue basket.

They're exactly the same.

But... they aren't.

They're two different colors.

Okay, I'll put

the bread in the blue basket.

Where's Jenny?

Who knows? Mom and I

are doing all this ourselves.

I offered to help.

But we don't

want your help, it's your day.

And it's almost done anyway.

Hey where you been?

I got somebody

I want you to meet.

I don't have time, I have to

help Mom and Anne with the food.

No you don't,

you can help us clean up.

All you have to do is say hello.

Hey Tommy, I want you

to meet my sister Jenny.

- Hi.

- It's nice to meet you.

Your brother has

told me so much about you.

Tommy just transferred here

from our New York office.

Oh, New York,

that's a big change.

But I'm sure

you'll love Cleveland.

It's got a very

rich cultural heritage.

Look I've

got to leave but, um...

would it be alright

if I called you sometime?

Yeah. Sure. Sure.

Yeah, don't bother calling.

Why not?

She won't call back.

Strike 43.

Oh, shut up, Anne.

I don't know why we keep trying.

That guy is cute.

If you keep on being so picky

you're going to end up alone.

You know...

did it ever occur to you

that I might actually

be in a relationship

with somebody?

No, are you?

It doesn't matter

if I am or I'm not.

Why does everybody

always assume I'm not?

Because you never bring anybody

home and you never mention it.

The only people we've

ever met are your roommate

and that pack of friends

you do everything with.

If there is somebody,

what's wrong with him?

He's married isn't he?

She said it?

No, but she didn't deny it.

And I could tell from her face.

Ah, I just don't believe

she'd do something like that.

I hope he doesn't have kids.

Do you know how long

it's been going on?

What are you

doing out there, Frankie?

Just making some phone calls.

She's not going

to tell me anything.

I have everything she wants.

2 kids and a husband.

I know.

I am not involved

with a married man.

Good.

Not that you're going

to do what I say anymore.

At your age what you do

is... is your business.

Like me. Sitting here.

Having a quiet smoke

that nobody needs to know about.

Have I ever told on you?

No.

That Anne has such a big mouth.

If she has to gossip

about something

she should at least

get her story straight.

You should leave Anne alone.
