Good, everybody.

Hold plank.


Belly towards your spine,

and now we're going to lower down

and come up into what I like to call...



And then,

there's this great yoga word

for this pose,

and I can't remember what it is,

but it kind of sounds like a sneeze,

it's like, "ah... Snasanasa!"




Thank you, Mrs. Klemmer.

And you have to make sure

you keep your knee

over your ankle

so you don't damage your patella.



Do you want to come up

and show us?


Great. Thank you.

All right.

Knee over the ankle,

arms up in the air.


Warrior two.

Mrs. Klemmer...


You're very good at this.

Do you want to take over the class?

Oh. Sure, of course.


That would be great.


I'm going to go.

Okay. Bye.

I'm just going to get my bag.

Thank you.


I'm sorry, Jimmy.

I don't think I'm very good at this.

It happens.

Now that you're free,

I was wondering if maybe

we could go out sometime.


I don't date my bosses.

Great, because

I'm not your boss anymore.

Or my ex-boss.

Let me take your arm.

Oh, what a gentleman.

Thank you.

So, what are we doing tonight?

Tonight, it's dinner

at a romantic little spot

off the beaten track

with the best food in the city.

That sounds great.

Yeah, then tomorrow,

I was thinking

breakfast in the country

with my mother.

She's very excited to meet you.

Are you a size 2?

Because if you are,

her wedding dress

would be a perfect fit.

Um... Mike?

Uh... you know what,

suddenly, I'm not that hungry.

Um, maybe we can take a rain check?


Yeah. Absolutely.

Uh... it's supposed to rain

next week.

You're back already?

Two minutes.

That is a record even for you.

I may not know what I want,

but I know what I don't want.

What was that?

That was the sound

of the last time I let you fix me up.

His ex said he was a catch.

Maybe there's a reason she's his ex.

Or maybe there's a reason

you don't give anyone,

or anything, a chance.

I give everything a chance.


How was the job at the dental office?

- Not...

- for you.

I don't like teeth.

You know who that sounds like?

Don't say "mom".

Did you read her last postcard?

She's in Maine,

on a hiking trip.

Oh, you're two weeks behind.

I just saw on her Facebook page

that she met a bunch of tourists,

and she's joining them for a cruise...


She can't even commit to a hike.

Well, I can commit.

I just...

I haven't found the thing

I'm really good at yet.

Rob! Steve!

Dinner's ready, okay?

Hey, no, it's my sword!

The dragon again.

I got this.

Thanks, Poppy.

Hey, guys.

What's going on?

But aunt Poppy,

Steve won't give me his sword.

It's not my fault you broke yours.

Do you guys hear that?

Hear what?

It's the dragon breathing.

And while you two

fight over that sword,

he's getting closer.

Now, you know what's

more important than a sword

when you're defending yourself

against a rogue dragon?


A fireproof shield.

Throw me that pillow.

Now, when that dragon

breathes on you,

you are toast.

You're worse than toast,

you're burnt toast.

Now go...

Defeat the dragon.

Both of you.

Take that.

In your face, dragon.

Take that, dragon!

You'll never get us!

Well, you do know I'm never

getting that pillow back, right?

Small price to pay for saving

the kingdom from ruin.

We did it!

We got him!


That's awesome.


Is something

you're really good at.

This broccoli

is really good, mom.



...look, we're getting
