When we're out in the moonlight

lookin' up on skies above

feels so good

when I'm near you

holding hands

and making love

whoo, whoo, baby

yes, oh, baby

yes, oh, baby

yes, oh, baby

Sandy beecher

was making love

as it travels in our lives

feels so good

walkin' side by side

want to be with you

all my life

whoa, oh, baby

yes, oh, baby

yes, oh, baby


No bedsores?


No pulse?


Why do you keep having

to push them buttons?

Sometimes things

need to be reset.

Did you ever have to

reset a prolapsed anus?

Do you even... Do you

know what that is?

Have you ever... Have

you ever had to deal

with a prolapsed an... anus?


Did they teach you

that in nurse school?

You and the ladies

get that lesson?

I'll tell you what. I'll give

you a little lesson on it.

A prolapsed anus is when the

anus, which is a muscle, gives

out, after years of abuse.

Comes out of the rear and hangs

like a, like a slack bag of tissue.

Like a purse that you might have...

A nurse would have.

Can you imagine what it would

take to make your anus do that?

A lot of butt f***ing.

The old man's probably got

a prolapsed amus... anus.

Anus and Andy.


Famous anus cookies.

Anything there?

So you change my dad?

You put diapers on him and

clean his a**hole, and take...

Put his sh*t in a bag, throw it

out, put it down the toilet?

Pretty cool.

Pretty cool way to live.

I wonder if my dad's sh*t

has ever gotten under your

fingernails, and then you

forgot, and you are driving

home, worrying about... worrying

about your life, and you start

biting your fingernails, and

his sh*t gets in your mouth.

You got to be careful.

Make sure you wash them hands.




What's up?

I know, but we can bring

something else in, right?

Do we need something with

evergreens that's gonna last...

I just want you to look

at this bush here because

it's looking really...

It's pretty bad.

Yeah, I don't know if

there's a bug on it.

Look at the leaves on there.

And it's all been chewed,

and it's unbalanced.

It doesn't fit.

Yeah, and it's blocking

this thing here.

Most of when you get the flies, they...

the cuts are much more round.

That could be the larvae

going through it.

But I remember a grapevine...

It's comin' along, huh?

Yeah, yeah, looks great.

Getting there.

Good job.

Hey, what are these?

These are looking very weedy.

Those are out of here, right?

I love the black-eyed Susan.

Nadar LA piscina, I guess.

Nadar LA piscina.

Yeah, yeah, sure. It's my guys

here don't speak any English.

They keep saying, "nadar LA

piscina, nadar LA piscina!

Swim in your pool."

So they're always going

to me "nadar LA piscina?"

That's great. "Can we

swim in their pool?"

I go, "well, you know,

it's private property.

Yeah, it's gotten hot

out here for sure.

This is looking a little

troubled over here.

This one's shading it so badly.

Let's get more light under it.

What do you say if me and my

guys took a quick little dip?

What do you think?

They want to swim.

Why not?

I suppose.

Yeah, yeah, sure.


Once they've finished here.

They're gonna mow before

they go, as well, right?

We can get you some towels. The

housekeeper will get you some towels.

No, that's fine.


I had a great day.

I went to the shopping mall.

I feel so good about hanging out

with my best friends today.

Who are your best friends?

All my loved ones

are in this room.

I want to thank everybody for

being so kind and considerate.

How about a round of applause

just for the five of us?
