and Uncle Nathan,

nice talking to you


Hey, Julie!


Julie, can I come in for a minute? Yeah

Julie, I really need your help The

whole family's coming over tonight

I don't know why,

but the place is a mess

Could you just

give me a hand?

Yeah, okay,

in just a few minutes

Are you all right? I thought

I heard you moaning last night

Well, I kind of had a

little bit of a stomachache,

but it's fine now

It's gone

You hate me?


You know, for making you study so

much and giving up all your dates

No, you were right

Honey, I'm telling you, those

SAT scores are your ticket

And, sweetie, you know,

once you get to school,

you're gonna meet a lot of guys that

you like just as well as that Tod

Why do you always say "that

Tod"? It just sounds so

You're right I'm sorry It's

been pleasant for a moment

Okay, I guess I'm just gonna give

everybody spaghetti and salad,

and I better cook a steak for

my dad See you later, honey

Are you okay?

Man, your mother can talk!

Gosh, she hates my ass

And it's such

a cute ass

Last night, she heard the

moaning She thought it was me



So you're gonna have to try

and control yourself, Tod

With you? It's impossible



I brought something

Ooh! Good

We can record our love

Susan Hi, Sis, it's Helen

Yeah, did I loan you my big

platter? Oh, great, great

Yeah, I thought so Would

you bring it over tonight?

I just need it to serve

Oh, listen,

Julie got 1,291 on her SATs

I know I know I feel so

proud of her It's great

Yeah How's Patty?

We're a little disappointed

with the effort

she's been giving lately

towards her work

Math, French,

everything's gone down

Nathan's talking to her right now

He's trying to figure out what's wrong

Look, Patty,

all I'm saying is,

if you wanna have just an

ordinary academic career

and attend an ordinary university,

that's your prerogative,

but I must tell you I think

you're selling yourself way short

How's it going?

I don't know Sometimes I feel as

though we want it more than she does

Patty, you know

we love you

Could you just give your father that

little extra effort he's looking for?

Okay, Mama

That's all I ask

Come on, Kevin

I got you

I want that, Kevin I want that! No

Kevin! Taylor!


Time to come in

now, children


Okay, Grandma

Hey, hey, you wanna

Come on, I don't believe it

Gil, you have a good memory

Was it yours or Helen or

Susan's wedding I got drunk at?

It was all three, Dad


Well, which one did I

punch the bandleader?

That was mine

We have photos

I'm having them blown up

for the commitment hearings

You think he's funny, huh? When
