Police, don't move!


The living room isn't your bedroom.

I've kept quiet for hours

waiting for you to wake,

but I have to clean the house now.

What time did you get home?

I went to bed at 1. You weren't in.

The dog started to bark at 3:30 AM.

Mathieu, I'm talking to you!

What's the idea waking me up!


You should have slept in your room.

I've kept quiet for hours

waiting for you to wake,

I can't go next door to clean our house

just to let you sleep.

Besides that...

You have a room, Mathieu.

Maybe you can't get in it

for all the clothes on the floor.


Your doors!

It's not that hard.

You open a door, you close it.

Look, you open the door,

you close the door.

Door, close the door.

Imagine a door there.

Even if you didn't open it, close it,

No matter, it helps.

The milk!

You put milk in your cereal.

Where does it go?

In the fridge, as simple as that!

Your brother's plane lands at 5.

Your father says

we'll leave around 3:30. Got it?


Vince just texted me.

He's at the skate park.

May I go?


Be back before 3:30 PM, OK?


Do you have your two controllers?

- Of course.

- Yeah?

- Is your mom there?

- No.

Do you have some chicken fingers?

Controllers, chicken fingers.

Sure thing, man. Sure thing.

Your mom cooks

the best chicken fingers.

I'm telling you, man. Your mom cooks

the best chicken fingers.

- What the...

- She does!

No, my mom cooks chicken fingers.

Good ones!

Everyone knows how to cook 'em.

- Well, I don't know how to cook them.

- Well, you're a f***ing moron!

I'm not a moron. We don't eat

chicken fingers in my family.

My mom is against that.

I don't know what to say.

I don't eat them.

I see what you mean,

but you're a lazy-ass bum.

Ah, man.

Ah f***.

That f***ing weed is disgusting!

- Is that Kev's weed?

- No, that's not Kev's weed.

Kev's mom caught by him.

He's grounded now.

This is Phil's weed man.

Phil's weed tastes like crap.

It's disgusting.

It buzzes like sh*t.

Going to Vaness' party tonight?

Yeah, I'm going.

- And you, Matt?

- No.

Want some more?

I gotta go, guys.

Do you have your Clear Eyes?

Yeah, I got it.

F***, check this out on Facebook!

Marjorie is freaking out

just because she wasn't invited.

- She's so annoying!

- Totally.

Man, we didn't invite her.

She's annoying online

and worse when she's with us.

That's why we don't invite you, man!

Marjorie's a pain in the ass.

She's a pain in the ass.

She's like an open wound that bleeds.

Ciao, man.

- Yo, are we going to your place after?

- Yeah, man.
