Good day, Mr. Finley.

Good day, Ms. Miller.






You out, boy?

Got him, Mr. Finley.

- Morning, Mrs. Baker.

- Morning.


Hello, Mr. Perryfield.

I am sorry I'm a little late.

It's about time.

I was about to go inside.

There's a storm coming,

and my hip's killing me.

I'm sorry to hear that, sir.

Now, you don't think

I'm gonna sit around all day

waiting for you

when the cold comes, do you?

No, sir.

Be careful with that top step there.

It gives a little.

(Boy) Here goes.


Ah. Yuck!


(Mr. Finley)

And good morning to you!

(Woman) Good morning, Mr. Finley!

Good morning, Sheila. Beautiful day, isn't it?

- Sure is.

- How's Jimmy?

- He's doing real good.

- Good.

You take care now, huh?

All right. You, too.

(Door closes)



About this Brady McDaniels,

he's already missed several days

this month. I can't keep covering.

Hey, Mr. Mullins,

go look up the word "fragile".

Uh, "Les"?

When did I become "Les"?

Sorry, uh, Lester...

Mr. Stevens.

Boss, the guy's a screw-up.

It's like he's asking to get canned.

How many days this month?

Hey, Cathy. Congratulations, girl.

Thanks, Mr. S.

- Four.

- Four? That's not so bad.

It's only the 12th.

Look, Carl...

I just think there's something there

worth saving.


I thought you were gone already.

I need someone good, Lester.

This has been my route for ten years.

I've been voted Best Postal Carrier

seven years and counting.

I know, Walter,

but it's slim pickings right now.

What about that new kid Trevor?

Oh, he's slow as mud through a straw.

- Kay.

- Kay's got a month left on maternity leave.

And before you ask,

Pete just got his knee scoped.

Look, Walter, it's your time now.

You've always wanted an extended leave.

You've earned it.

Go, enjoy.

I'll find the right fit.



But there are a few things you should know. 237,

the old man...

Cornelius Perryfield...

checks the box every day

at the same time.

Good-bye, Walter.

It's one trip out, and if the mail's not there,

he'll call and complain.

And the Bakers' dog, 231,

he'll take a chunk out of you if you don't...

Go now.

All right.

One more thing.

Oh, Lord have mercy.

Take a look at these.

244 Laurel Lane.

Can't just shred 'em,

but they keep coming.

It's like...

finding a kitten on your back porch.

You can't just walk away.

I'll take care of them, Walter.

Go on home.

I'm staying in town,

so call me if you need anything.

Get a life, Finley!

No. Get a wife.


Oh. Ah! Ooh!

No, no, no, no.


Ohh, no. No, no, no.

Oh, another gourmet dish?

Yeah, something like that, Mom.

Ohh. Ohh.


nobody expects you to be Supermom.

Yeah, well, lucky for that.

Gosh, I just wanted to make a nice meal for my

kids before I went back to work, and I...


you've got enough on your plate.

- Here, let me have these. Come on.

- Ohh.

Mom, listen, I really appreciate

you dropping everything to come here,

but it's not fair to put it all on you. I...

Yeah, my schedule was so busy!

Tea with the Queen and all.

Honey, that's what moms are for.

Maddy, you need this job.

I'll tell you when it gets to be too much.

Hot! Hot, Mom! That's hot!

I'm sorry! Sorry, sorry.

Ah! I gotta go.

Thank you! I love you!

Right back at you.

Honey, was that meatloaf?

(Boy) I'm busy. Come back later.

Busy, huh?

Have you finished your homework?

It's not due till Friday.

What's your excuse

gonna be on Thursday?

I don't know. I'll think of something.

Nobody likes a smart aleck, Ben.
