NASA scientists are excited

over recent findings by the Mars Rover

of fossilised organic compounds

on the surface that indicate

at some time in the past there

may have been life on the red planet.

Thank you.

Was it really that hard?

Every day with the trash!

What is the big deal?

Well, can you imagine

what the world would look like

- if nobody took out the trash?

- Yeah, it would be awesome.

And speaking of trash,

have you cleaned your room yet?

And don't forget to shut the door.

Milo, sweetie, can you get that?

I have to do everything around here.

Stromboli's Slave Shack,

captive 331 speaking.

- Hey, stinker.

- Dad! Hey, are you almost home?

Because the movie starts at five, and

then it starts again at seven, and I...

Hold on. Slow down. Slowdown.

I don't think I'm gonna

make it back in time.

Well, you can't miss the beginning.

That's when the vampires take

over the submarine...

No, I know. I know. But...

looks like my flight's canceled.

And no one's flying till

this weather lets up.

I'm really sorry, Milo.

I'll make it home as soon as I can.

- I love you.

- OK. Bye.

- Hi, honey. What's up?

- Stuck at the airport.

That's too bad. Milo was

really looking forward to...

- I was looking forward to taking him.

- Yeah, I know.

I'm sorry.

Well, maybe if he

finishes all his dinner

he could watch Zombie Dawn III

on pay-per-view.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

(After Milo had his dinner, he leaves the broccoli, pushes the plate, and leaves off the table.)

Milo's Mom:
Whoa-ho-ho-ho-ho! You didn't eat your broccoli.

Broccoli makes me barf.

Besides, it looks like brains.

Milo's Mom:
Well, you like zombies.

Zombies eat brains.

Mom, no one likes zombies.

They're an abomination.

I'm committed to their annihilation.

Milo's Mom:
OK. Well, no broccoli, no TV.

(While Milo's Mom is holding the basket of clothes and walks in the hallway, Milo gives the broccoli to Cujo and got poisoned.)


(Milo hides after his mom came)


Come over here.

(He comes close to mom to explain why he fed the broccoli to Cujo.)

Is that broccoli?

No. That's vomit,

but I understand the confusion.

Milo's Mom:
I thought I told you to eat that.

Well, you're not gonna make me

eat it now, are you?

(Milo's mom gets angrily at Milo and points to the stairs while looking at Milo)

Milo's Mom:
Go to bed.

But you said I could watch...

Milo's Mom:
No. That was before you lied

to me and poisoned the cat!

That broccoli was poisonous?

Milo's Mom:

Of course the broccoli

wasn't poisonous.

Well, you just said that...

Milo's Mom:

I meant that it's

poisonous to the cat.

Well, how can it be good for me

if it's poisonous to the cat?

Milo's Mom:
Because cats are not

supposed to eat vegetables.

Maybe I'm not

supposed to eat vegetables.

Milo's Mom:
Milo! Just go to bed.


(So Milo walks upstairs to his bed. While mom is coming upstairs, she heard Milo jumping on the bed and walked so angry at him as she entered his room)

I thought I told you to go to bed!

You told me to go to bed.

You didn't say get into bed.

It's not specific.

Milo's Mom:

My life would be so much better

if I didn't have to be a nagging mom.

Yeah, well, my life would be so much

better if I didn't have a mom at all.

(Milo's Mom feels sad about what Milo said and walks out of his room)

Cujo. Wake up.

I can't sleep.

I shouldn't have said

what I said, should I?

It wasn't a good thing to say.

I feel really bad about it.

I should go tell her I'm sorry.
