Never thought that|I'd be fighting you

But you stole my heart|You cheated and lied

You weren't in my corner|You weren't on my side

The gloves are off|You hit below the belt

Now it's time-out, baby|And they've rung the bell

I'm not a fighter|I'm a lover

But ifyou run|Then run for cover

Fight for your love|Yeah

- When it's round two, girI|- Turn this up! Now!

- Good.|- I get a knockout punch

With this heartfelt song

I know when I count you|Down from ten

I'll find you|In my loving arms again

The gloves are off|You hit below the belt

Now it's time-out, baby|And they've rung the bell

I'm not a fighter|I'm a lover

But ifyou run|Then run for cover

Fight for your love|Yeah

I'm not a fighter|I'm a lover

But ifyou run|Then run for cover

Fight for your love|Yeah

Whoa, nobody caught me.|That was lame.

I don't think he's moving.

He is a lazy freeloader,

and it's time for all this|dysfunction to stop.

Can't we just do this later?

I mean, you know how|he gets in the morning.

Ned, aren't you tired of letting people|push you around?

Yes.

Then get in there and do it.

What?

What is it?

Dewey, hey,|it's the first of the month, and...

...I'd like your share|of the rent now.

Man, you know I don't have it.

You wake me up for that?|Come on, man!

Sorry.

Dewey, I mean, you owe me|a lot of money as it is.

Yeah, try $2,200.

OK, you guys,|the band is about to hit it bigtime.

We'll win Battle of the Bands.|When I'm rolling in Benjamins,

I will throw you and your dog a bone.|Good night.

- Your band has never made 2 cents.|- Patty, come on, I'm on this.

Oh, you're on this?|You're on this?

He's walking all over you.

Mommy, could we please|talk about this later?

No, we can't talk about it later,|because we have to go to work.

We have jobs.|We contribute to society. All right?

I am an assistant to|the mayor of the city, "hello"!

What? Can you get her out of here,|please? Why? Why her?

And Ned has the most|important job there is.

Temping?

Dewey, a substitute teacher|is not a temp.

- He's a babysitter.|- Think it's so easy?

I'd like to see you try.|You wouldn't last a day.

Dude, I service society|by rocking.

I'm out there liberating people|with my music.

Rocking ain't no|walk in the park, lady.

All right, this is useless,|all right?

Tell him if he doesn't come up|with the rent by the end of the week,

he's out of here.

Dewey, I'm not paying|your share of the rent, so...

...maybe you should sell|one of your guitars or something.

What?

Would you tell Picasso|to sell his guitars?

Oh, my God. He's an idiot.

Dude, I've been mooching off you|for years,

and it was never a problem until|she showed up. Dump her.

If you don't come up with|some money, she'll dump me.

Really? That would be good.|She's a nightmare.

Come on. I may never have|another girlfriend.

I mean, just come on.|Come up with some money, please.

Please.

OK. For you. Not for her, man.|For you.

Thank you.

HeaI me

I'm heartsick|D minor.

I'm hungry|And A minor, G, on you

- HeaI my heart|- Hey! What's up?

Is that a new song?|Who's this guy?

We're taking the Battle of the Bands|seriously this year.

Good, because I need|the money. Now, listen.

If we're gonna win this thing, we gotta|actually start playing some music.

I agree. You're fired.

Your lyrics, now don't take this|the wrong way, Theo, are lame.

But I've been sitting on some|awesome material, so...

Did you hear what I said?

We voted.

You're out.

This is Spider. He's replacing you.

What's up, dog?

I was gonna tell you last night,|but you passed out, man.

You're gonna kick me out of the band?|You're gonna fire me?
