Morning, Louis.

I'd offer you a hand, but all

I can lift is this coffee.

you try to impress girls in the bat cage.

I wasn't flirting,

I was being a gentleman.

a poor helpless 25-year-old.

Yeah, helpless.

Do you know what this is?

Is it a Father's Day

present for Daddy?

No. No, this is

Mommy's catalog.

Assuming they got the color

right this time.

Oh, let's hope.

I think they did.

It's a little bit magenta,

but it's almost perfect.

- What's magenta?

- This color.

Honey, it's perfect.

Mom, can Louis come

to the beach with us?


No, Louis needs to stay here

and do some work.

Just like your daddy.

That's correct.

Father's Day party that me and

your dad are gonna have tonight.

Louis! Shh!

- Oh, come on.

- You're not having a party.

I'm not having a party,

I'm working very hard.

Did you pack your gun?

- Yes.

- Did you pack the bomb?

- Yes.

- Have you packed the cannon?

- Yes.

- Have you packed the chainsaw?

You didn't pack the chainsaw?

Go get the chainsaw, man!

The cement still hasn't dried,

but it should be fine by tomorrow night.

Still, it's extremely fragile

and I don't trust those movers

after the mess

they made at the gallery.

Mmm-mmm. No, I'll take

care of it. Don't worry.

Okay, gracias, I'll have it

all packed up for you.


It's almost dry though.

Yeah, so I'll just text you

when it's at the gallery.
