It may not look like it,

But I'm totally shitting

my pants right now.

Mainly 'cause of this guy,


If I don't land this jump,

he's going to yell at me.

Well, he'll do that either way

because that's how

he motivates.

I'm also shitting myself

because they're here.

Mom and Dad.

They paid a lot of money for

me to skate over the years

and if I let them down,

my dad's totally

gonna make me pay him back.

Okay, I'm joking.

I just want them to be proud.

Those marks mean

you must work harder.

Much harder. More practice.

More discipline.

- Why are you talking like I.

- Didn't just pass my junior test?

- Wait, no, not pass,

- I aced it.

- I'm elite now!

- You want a cookie?

It's bad for training.

- How are you not more.

- Excited about this?

- I could go.

- To the Olympics!

I am happy.

Would it kill you

to show it?

Old saying.

Treat triumph

like a funeral.

Funeral like triumph.

What does that

even mean?

- Only celebrate.

- At the end?

- Where's the fun.

- n that?

- I don't think Shin.

- Believes in fun.

Unless it involves

plastic wrap.

What are you guys

talking about?

We saw him jogging in the

park with his arms and legs.

And abs!

Wrapped up in plastic.

Hey, the man's

been to two Olympics.

Maybe we should do that.

Seriously though,

what did that even mean?

Treat triumph like funeral.

No way.

My motto is always smile.

I don't mean be fake,

but always, always find

a reason to be happy.

And if you can't,

smile anyway.

Why the heck not?

Hey Car,

are you ready...?

Oh my God.

That dress is gorgeous.

Mom got you the prom dress.

- She said we could pick it up.

- f I made elite.

It's beautiful.


- I call dibs when.

- That's a hand-me-down.

Ah, no no no no no no.

I have seniority.

That dress goes up first.

Okay, I gotta get dressed.

- Hurry up!

- Come down soon, okay?


- Okay, Joe.

- Read back what we got so far.

Yeah. Yes, yes.

Don't even start.

What does it even say?

- You know what?

- It's from my heart.


Elite, baby!

My sister's going to Sochi.

We're so proud of you.

Aren't we, Mark?

Hey! Hey you,


- I gotta try and.

- Fix this part up.

- Sam, can you grab the.

- Cake cutter for me, honey?

- You know what? I am going to.

- Take you skating next week.

- 'Cause I can still teach.

- You some tricks, too.


- You know what?

- Dad!

- Why do you keep.

- Saying drywall?

Like, do you like

working for me?

- I'm gonna have.

- To call you back.


- I think we can.

- Cut the cake now.

- Because he might have to.

- Get back on the phone.

- But, like, you're.

- Not allowed to because.

Do you cut it

like this?

Thanks for coming.

It just does what it wants?

It does do what it wants.

You're totally right.

That's pretty cool.

Yeah I mean it's.


Is this your house?

- Only in the winter.

- Really?

- Yeah, I summer.

- n Costa Rico.

Costa Rica.

- What?

- It's Costa Rica.

Ignore my geographically-

challenged friend.

Thank you.

Whoa, what are you doing?


You just have a lint.

Got it.

- I thought you were trying to.

- Put a sticky note on my back.

What? What would

make you think that?

God, I don't even know you.

Don't we have

biology class together?

Do you believe this guy?

Accusing me?

It's just that there's

a bunch on peoples' backs,

- and you have one.

- Balled up in your hand.

No I don't.



Yeah, that's preposterous.


I don't even know you.

Who do you think I am?

I mean, who would

do such a thing?
