What if this was your house?

Power's out. Lights are dead.

Your little ones in their bunk bed

down the hall, crying out...

Mommy! Daddy! Come quick! I'm scared!

- You need to get there, and fast.

- Coming, honey! Daddy's coming!

You'll need a weapon.

But first, you'll need a flashlight.

But you're in the dark!

What are you gonna do?

How are you gonna find it?

I'll tell you how.

The Glow-in-the-Dark Flashlight!

That's right, folks!

I'm Larry Daley of Daley Devices,

and we're gonna spend

the next paid-programing block

rocking your world.

And I brought along a friend to do it.

George Foreman, ladies and gentlemen!

Fantastic, Larry, fantastic!

Isn't he fantastic, America?

But, seriously, isn't it true

that just two years ago,

you were working as a night guard

at some dusty museum?

That is true, two-time world

heavyweight champ George Foreman.

I was just a regular Joe

with a flashlight and a dream.

You mean a regular Larry.

But what's no joke is

you're CEO of Daley Devices,

creator of such indispensable items

as the Super Big Dog Bone!

- You like that one?

- The Unlosable Key Ring!

Oh, yeah, that little chestnut!

And now your latest breakthrough...

Say it with me, America!

The Glow-in-the-Dark Flashlight!

Whatever the household crisis,

this is Daley Devices. Can I help you?

Tina, give this back to Stewart.

I don't trust his math, okay?

- That guy called again.

- Again?

Lar! Huge news!

We got the Wal-Mart meeting.

- No! When?

- Yeah. Three days.

Okay, all right.

We got a lot of work to do.

Well, okay, did you just hear me

say "Wal" and "Mart" together?

Yeah! I know, it's huge.

So just take a second

to be happy about it.

All right.

You're totally making fun of me.

No, let's hold off on the victory parade

till we close, okay?

You got it.

- And when does he want to meet?

- They want Friday morning, 10:00 a.m.

Okay, then, you know what?

Cancel that pitch

for the electric saw thing

with the propeller, all right?

- I just want to focus on this.

- Okay.

- Just this.

- My daughter's birthday, canceled!

You can go home.

I'm gonna be pretty late, okay.

Okay, boss.

Hello! Excuse me!

Unauthorized personnel!

If it isn't our very own

Mr. Success Story.

Come for one of your nostalgia tours?

I haven't seen you for a few months.

Yeah, I've been busy.

What's going on here?

Progress, so they tell me.

The future.

Behold, Natural History, version 2.0.

Welcome to The Museum of Natural

History, where history comes to life!

Step up, ask your question.

Then let the next little boy or girl

have their turn.

Okay, where were you born?

Right here in New York City,

on Twentieth Street.

October 27th,

the year of our Lord 1858.

Blah, blah, blah.

History, history. Learning, learning.

Changing America, one child at a time.

That's great. So you're adding

some new interactive exhibits?

No, Mr. Daley, not adding.

Replacing the old exhibits.

- Where are they going?

- Away.

We're getting rid of all this junk.

The dioramas, the waxworks,

even some of the shabbier animals,

like this scrawny little monkey.

You should be careful. He's a capuchin.

It's a monkey.

He's a rare breed. He's a capuchin.

He's not just a monkey.

"Monkey", then. I said "monkey".

Why be specific?

When you're throwing away a monkey,

you don't need the Latin name.

Are you throwing him away

or are you moving him?

What are you, the Primate

Garbage Police? Let it go, baby.

- Whose idea was this?

- Me, of course.

I'm in charge. Me and the board.

Mainly the board.

Anyway, why do you care?

No, it's just that people
