and goes on the bridge...

and then...

Oh, he should see

Allie's farm by now.

-Say, "Hi, Allie"!

-Hi, Allie.

-Hi, we miss you!

-We miss you.

And he goes through

the bumpy mud.

And he goes through the path.

He goes all the way up.

-And now he's getting near town.


He's almost there.

And then he goes into that shop.

Careful, Jack.

Be brave, Jack.

Catch me if you can!

Two weeks ago today...

Oh, Jack.

I was beginning to think you

wouldn't show up this week.

Hm, they smell delicious.

You bring a list?

Thousands saluted

the American flag

stiff with wires

so that it would wave.

Then inspected the conditions

of the lunar module...

How's your mother feeling?

Any better?

Not really.

It's this change in weather.

I'm sorry to hear that.

I'm sure she'll get

well soon, though.

Give her my love, will you?

What's with all of these books?

They came in on Friday.

From a library weeding in a place

I used to work in Portland.

I say we let their weeds

become our flowers.

I've missed you.

I'm sorry I didn't

make it last week.

It's okay.

Oh, I have the book

that you asked for.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Uh, how's Sam coming along?

Does he need another one?

How can he read so fast?

It's almost at least

300 pages long.

I miss the little guy.

And Jane, and Billy.

It's so easy for me to just

pop by, I could...

Perhaps my mother's better.

Hello there.

Mr. Porter.


What do you think?

Very smart.

Do you remember that position

I told you about in New York?

Parker & Jameson.

Does this mean...?

Well, it means that they fell under

my charm and I got the job.

It is wonderful, Tom.

I'm just so happy for you.

Anyway, I happen to stroll

past the strand and...

I couldn't help thinking of...


What is that?

It's a donation,

if you will, for the library.

This is a first edition,

I can't possibly accept this.

I just wish you could've

seen the place.

You would love it. Maybe

I should take you sometime.

You ever been to New York City?

Jack Fairbairn.

It's Marrowbone now.

We go by my mother's last name.

Right, well, uh...

speaking of which, the other

heirs have already signed off.

And I need to collect the

transfer charges on the estate.

I'll come around the

house tomorrow.

Tell your mother have a bank

check ready for 200 dollars.

She's quite unwell.

Perhaps it would be best

if I took the papers and

I have my mother sign them

and bring them back to you.

I need to certify the signatures.

I'll be there tomorrow. Noon.

Bye, Jack.

I'll see you soon.

F***ing lawyers.

Oh, God, I knew that creepy

bastard would bring us trouble.

How much money do we have

in Mother's savings?
