We all love

the richness of a good eye cream.

But it does leave a richness

or a greasiness under the eye.

Now let's take a look

at that nasty salsa stain.

This shirt is ruined, right?

Wrong.

Watch the stain-fighting power of...

... designed with women in mind.

If you can twist it,

turn it, remove it,

then you can fix it,

replace it, or improve it.

My kits includes a guidebook...

Plus they painted some people up

like animals, and now it's over.

If you think you need

to go to a gym to lose weight,

stay in shape, and have a body like this,

think again.

This is Bowflex, the real workout...

When you're looking for a home, your

real estate agent is a big part of your life.

You need someone

you can count on.

Well, they studied science

and medicine in skin care,

and combined those two

in your skin solutions line.

That's exactly it. I so much

appreciate being able to be here.

Nice to have you with us,

as always.

We would love to take your phone calls.

This really is a very...

When you contact a RE/MAX agent

to help you buy yourself a home,

you expect service that's

a little out of the ordinary.

After all, RE/MAX agents average

more experience and more sales

than other agents.

So the next time you need outstanding

real estate service, call RE/MAX.

Can't sleep?

Jesus,

Oh, you scared me,

I'm sorry,

- What are you doing here?

- I just thought I'd check up on you,

Why aren't you in bed?

Your student's still here,

He's up in your study,

He's not my student anymore,

He's teaching now, He's a bright kid,

- What time is it?

- After midnight,

- So?

- So?

- Happy birthday,

- Dad!

Do I ever forget?

Thank you,

Neither can I,

I forgot the glasses,

You want me to...?

No,

This is the worst champagne

I have ever tasted,

- It's not even champagne,

- The bottle's the right shape,

"Windy Valley Vineyards,"

I didn't know they made wine in Wisconsin,

You want some?

I hope you're not spending

your birthday alone,

- I'm not alone,

- I don't count,

- Why not?

- I'm your old man, Go out with friends,

- Yeah, right,

- Aren't your friends taking you out?

- Nope,

- Why not?

For your friends to take you out, you have

to have friends, Funny how that works,

You have friends, What about that

cute blonde? Lives over on Ellis Avenue,

- You used to spend every minute together,

- Christie Jacobson?

Christie Jacobson,

- That was in third grade, Dad,

- Oh,

Last time I saw her was in a sandbox,

What about Claire?

She's not my friend,

She's my sister,

And she's in New York,

And I don't like her,

I thought she was coming in,

Not till tomorrow,

My advice if you can't sleep

is to sit down and do some mathematics,

- Please!

- We could do some together, the old way,

Can't think of anything worse,

- Line by line, out loud,

- Sure you don't want any?

You better get cracking, By the time I was

your age, I had already done my best work,

- How old were you?

- Hmm?

When it started,

What?

You know, when... you got sick,

Uh...

- 26, 27, Is that what you're worried about?

- I've thought about it,

Just because I went bughouse doesn't

mean you will, It's not strictly hereditary,

Listen to me, Life changes fast in your 20s,

and it shakes you up,

You're down, you've had a lousy couple of

years, No one knows that better than me,

- You're gonna be OK,

- I am?

Yes, I promise you,

The simple fact that we can

talk about this together is a good sign,

- A good sign?

- Yeah,

How could it be a good sign?

Because crazy people don't sit around

wondering if they're nuts,

- They don't?
