I hate surprises.

- Yeah?

- Yes.

You didn't mind when I surprised you

with my promotion.

Well, that wasn't a surprise,

that was earned by my genius husband.

Good answer by my genius wife.

See, I thought you only liked me

for my body.

I do like you for your body.

What are we doing?


I don't understand. What is it?

- It's a house.

- Yes.

Yes, I can see that. Thank you.

- Also known as a home, sanctuary, dwelling.

- Yeah?

Or, if you like, you could just call it ours.


Where would we get the money?

I mean, how do we

get into something like this?

Oh, I don't know.

Maybe with a key.

Oh, my God.

Oh, my God, are you kidding?

It's a classic.

Three bedroom, one-and-a-half bath.

And the old owners even left us

a brand-new swing set out back.

Oh, well, I think I'm a little big

for swing sets.

We have to fill up those spare rooms

sometime soon, right?

Thank you.

- I love you.

- I love you, too.

Let's go home.



When's Daddy coming home?

- What, baby?

- When's Daddy coming home?

Today, baby. It was just an overnight trip.

Why couldn't he take us?

Because it was work and we couldn't go.

But how about a, "Good morning, Mommy.

- "Nice to see you. "

- Good morning, Mommy.

- Mom, you gotta get dressed.

- Sweetie, we got plenty of time.

- We're gonna be late for school.

- Oh, no.

We're not gonna be late for school.

Better get going or we'll be late for school.

Bridgette, are you okay

with your spelling words?

Yes, Mom.

Hey, hey, hey, don't forget your lunches.

You got it? Here. Got it?

Give me a kiss. Bye. Bye.

- Come on, Megan.

- I am!

This isn't dirty.

Hey, girl, what's going on?

I can't believe it's Thursday already.

Tell me about it.

I have no idea where this week went.

God, I wish you were here.

I am having the hardest time

trying to pick out my dress for tonight.

What about you guys?

You have any big plans for the weekend?

What, besides jetting off to Acapulco? No.

Yeah, right. Okay, I gotta go.

I gotta figure out

what I'm doing with my life right now.

Oh, yeah? What's his name?

His name?

Well, the name is really bad. It's Harry.

But, you never know, he could be the one.


You have one new message.

First new message.

Linda, listen, I need to tell you something.

I meant what I said in front

of the girls the other night, and...

I just...

I just want you to know that

and to please remember it.

Damn it. Someone's calling. Hold on.

Is that you?

End of messages.

If you leave a message,

I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Hey, it's me. I got your message.

I don't know when you left it,

but just call me when you get mine.

Okay? Bye.

Mrs. Hanson?


Linda Hanson?

- I'm Sheriff Reilly.

- Yes?

I'm sorry to tell you this.

- Your husband, Jim...

- Yeah?

...was in a car accident.

He died on the scene.

- When?

- Yesterday.

No. No, it's impossible because I just...

I just heard his voice

on the answering machine, so...

Well, I'm sorry, ma'am.

We couldn't get to you any sooner.

The other driver was in a truck. A semi.

They're certain it was instantaneous.

It jackknifed. 220.

He was on the highway,

around mile marker 220.

The truck driver was killed as well.

I'm very sorry about your husband.

Ma'am, is there anything that I can do?

Ma'am? Mrs. Hanson? Ma'am?

Ma'am, is there anything that I can do?

Can I call someone for you?

Let me leave you my card. Okay?

If you have any questions, you just call me.

What's wrong, Mommy?


What's wrong?

It's about Daddy.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

He's had a very bad accident.
