There are no free doctors.

Nurse, you're gonna have

to deliver that baby yourself.

I can see the head!

Holy sh*t!


Check it out.

We did it.

We had a boy.

A boy. You are my hero.


I name baby for you.

Oh! You don't have to do that.

Yeah. I must.

It is Latvian tradition.

We'll name the baby...


(Bernie on machine)


you've reached the Fockers.

We're not around,

so leave us a message.


Roz, how the hell

do you shut this thing off?

(Roz on machine)

I have no idea.

Just press a button.


I'm pretty sure it's off.


you want a chimichanga?


I thought they gave you gas.

A little bit,

but it's worth it.

Worth it for you,

but I'm the one

that gets the fumes.

Honey, I'm in the mood

for a chimichanga.

So make a...


Hi, guys, it's me.

Dad, I told you

six months ago

you have to change

that message.

Anyway, I'm just calling

to double check

'cause I didn't hear

back from you.

You know that

Pam and I are flying out

to Oyster Bay today.

And, then, we're flying

to Miami tomorrow

with the Byrneses.

And our flight gets in 7:30,

so we should be

at the house around 9:00.

So just give me a call

back on my cell, okay?

'Cause I want to go over

a few things

about Pam's dad and just, uh,

just some other stuff

for the weekend.

All right. I love you, bye.


Hey, sweetie.

How was your shift?

Oh! Guess what?


I delivered my first baby.


No way.

Mmm. Yeah.

Oh, honey,

I'm so proud of you.

It was incredible.

I mean, just...

Just to be pulling

this life force

out of this woman's...

You know, I mean,

it was just so... It was...

The whole baby thing is...

It's so cool.

That's great, honey.

That's great.

So, uh, are you ready to go?

I want to get

to the airport early.

I know.

Just give me a second.

You know how things

always goes wrong.

The flight leaves

in four hours.

I wish we could set

a wedding date

without our parents

actually having to meet.

Honey, this weekend

is gonna be fine.

And your parents are great.

Oh, they're great

in small doses.

Well, 48 hours

in Coconut Grove

is a small dose.

Besides, you've already

won over my dad,

and that is the hard part.

Mmm. That is true.

I mean, I am still

in the Byrnes family

circle of trust, right?

You're firmly in the circle.



Oh, taxi!

# All the time #

# As we go walking by #

Going to the airport?


Take mine.


# It's all right #

Nice guy.


# Hold you tight #
