This isn't funny.


I know it's done.

I'm just triple- checking.

Okay. Great.

Have all the files been sent?

Do you want me to call?

No, I will. Thanks.

Hi- I wanted to know if all

the files have been received?


Enough work, you're on leave.

Uh, thanks. Yeah.

It's all under control.


Go home.

Reconnect with the family.

If they'll take me.

I'm serious-

you need to relax.

Work is really getting to you.

We'll be here when

ya wanna come back.



Say hi to Andrea

and the kids for me.

- Great work.

- You too.

Now go.

So- no work.

No more research studies-

No one else's

problems to solve...

You alone in this big house,

with only your family to bother you.

How insane do you

think you'll go?


Listen- I just

want you to relax...

and live a little.

Then keep me occupied.

Oh Dr. Valentine,

you are a dirty girl!

Take me for a ride?

Any time.

Can I drive?

Never ever.

You suck.

'Livvy, it's not

polite to stare.

You too, Brian?

I count three,

how about you Olive?


Can we come away

from the window?

They're gonna

think that we're weird.

We are weird.

Speak for yourself.

Ooooh come on.

You too.

Ooooh come on.

Let's be civil and

go say "hello."

Come on Hunter.

Come here boy.



Emily, this is my husband Brian,

and our daughter Olive,

and Hunter.


I'm Tamara.

We live next door.

Yeah, I saw you

through the blinds.

Oh... Sorry.


No worries.

Mom, you should see the

size of our backyard.

It's huge!

This is Billy.

My eldest Titus...

he's, uh, somewhere inside.

So, do you need any help? Or...

No, thanks, we're good.

Well, Billy, if you want to

get out of your mom's hair,

I'm sure Olive would show

you around next door, uh,

if that's all right

with Mom, of course?

Ummm, no, we don't

want to intrude.

Oh, no, it's no problem at all.

That's what neighbors

are for, right?

Can I Mom?



Billy... he just

got over a cold, so...

Tell me about it. These kids are like

little carrier monkeys aren't they?

- Welllllll...

- Thanks Mom.

Always good to have

more kids around, right?

So where ya movin' from?


Oh, New York or...

Not that far East.


Oh, I love Denver.

The mountains there

are just beautiful.


Well, if you're finished,

and you feel like it,

you should come by,

if you're not too tired.

All right, thanks.

We'll see.

Nice meeting you.

Yeah, good to meet you.

Thanks for letting

Billy play with Olive.

Liv always loves a Playdate.


You ready to die?

Born ready.

You're good.

The best.

What now?

I don't know.

Blood brothers?


Blood brothers.

Shake on it.

Ewww, sick.


It's just a little blood.

No thanks.

I'm a girl anyways.

Let's do something else.

You're it.

So how ya likin' the 'hood?

Not bad.

Everybody's been really great.


I've been meaning to ask you,

do you want to carpool to school?

We could trade off mornings and afternoons

starting Monday, if ya want?

Yeah we could do

something like that.

Alright Billy, we gotta go.

We got a lotta things to do.


- Billy...

- 10 more minutes.

- I don't...

- Thanks Mom.

If he's ever a problem.

Nah, not at all.

Olive doesn't have a lotta

friends that live close by,

so it's a welcome break.

Ok. Well, thanks again.

I'll see you Monday.

See you Monday.

9 minutes!

Lady bug, lady bug

Fly away home.

Your house is on fire,

And your children are gone.

All except one,

And that's little Ann.

For she crept under

The frying pan.
