This is 153...

Now 155...

Would it be this one?



Here we go.

Here we go.


Big houses.

Oh, f***!

Ah, f***ing sh*t!

Oh, man!

F*** me.


Calm down.

Just chill.

Dogs, yeah, right house.

Back, back.

Hey... no, back guys.

One second.

Who was that guy?

Hey. Wrong house, I think.

Is Robyn here?

Yes. Yeah, you

must be Krisha?

Yes. And you are?

I'm Alex.

Oh, hi. And you're...

I'm Briana's husband.

Oh, the new daddy.

Yes, yes. Hey, do you want me to...

Congrats... no. I got it.

I got it.

All right.

I'm totally cool.

Well, nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you, too.


Wow! So, how old

is the baby now?

Oh, three months. About three months.


- Krisha!

- Robyn, hi.

Oh, my god. I was beginning to worry.

Hi, honey, I'm so sorry.

I... just don't even ask.

I can't believe you're here.

I know, honey.

I'm kinda sweaty, you don't wanna hug

me too tight. Oh, I do wanna hug you.

I want to look at you.

It's been so long.

Oh, god! Just crazy,

I'm so sorry that I'm late.

The GPS totally lied to me.

She's a totally lying b*tch.

What do you mean... She was

out to get me, you know.

And my phone was broken and...

Hi, hi. Good to see you. I'm sweaty, sorry.

How are you?

Can we take that for you?

No, no. I got it. I got it.


Vicki, look who's here.

I'm going to get out the way here

and let you guys have a hug.

Oh, my god.

I missed you.

You look beautiful.

Oh yeah, I look old and fat.

But thank you.

You are not, you look beautiful.

Oh, no! No! You've got a

lot of people to see.

Oh, where did the

blond hair go, dude?

When did the beard happen?

Just this morning.

Just this...

Oh... oh, no,

this is not a thing.

Oh, my gosh... oh, honey...


Isn't it awesome?

Everybody's growing up.

I knew you would.

Hi. So good to see you.

You, too.

Hey, mom, where's dad?

Oh, Briana...

It's so good to see you.


You look so beautiful.


She's just waking up.

She's so little.

Isn't she beautiful?

Good job, Alex.

Thank you.

Isn't she cute. Little baby rose.

Aw, look at her smile.

That's so sweet.

Oh, hey, Doyle.


How are you, Krisha?

You look so well preserved.


Ever Doyle.

What happened to the gate?

Oh, I kind of broke it

when I was letting Krisha in.

- Sorry, let me put this down.

- You can fix it, right?

Krisha, did you want some water

or something? Yeah, ice.

Ice water?


You want me to get your bag? No.

No, it's fine. I'll put it in

your room right up here. Okay.

You all right, sweetie?

You all right?

He's so big.

I know.

I'm good.

Yeah, I've got to run to the car and

get some stuff. Be right back, okay?

Yeah, no. I'm good, David.

I got it. I got it.

I got it. No. I'll be right back.

I'll be right back.

Who did this?

Did you do this?

That's a good boy.

Now, don't look at me that way, okay?

It's only for a few days.

There we go...

Gonna be mama's good boy.

Chase, dude,

game's on, game's on.

Dude, I'm trying

to hit the ceiling.

Chase, what do you think I'm

going to ask you to stop doing?

What do you think any parent

on god's green earth is going

to ask their child to stop doing? What

they should not be doing in the house?

Stop bouncing that ball!

- Come on. Come on.

- Go outside

with one of those

hairy-looking a**holes.

Hey Krisha, how's it looking?

It's perfect.

Okay, you feel like we got everything?
