Stir of Echoes
Jackson came over to play.
He was Batman.
Jake, are you OK in there, buddy?
Can I ask you a question?
OK! Time to hit the sack.
- An important question.
- There we go, big guy. Come on.
- Can I wear bugs?
- Bug pyjamas... are all the way downstairs.
But fire trucks are here.
- Fire trucks.
- Fire trucks.
- OK, bugs.
I'll be right back.
Does it hurt to be dead?
- What did I do now?
- Can I tell him?
- If you wanna die.
- Well, your beer-addled sperm still work.
- You impregnated my sister again.
- I said "Don't"!
The kid could have been born
before he'd notice.
- You're not pregnant.
- I feel "Congratulations" is more appropriate.
- You told her before you told me.
- She's a witch!
She took one look at me and guessed.
So... she's six weeks pregnant.
That means the baby's due in April, May,...
...June. Gemini. That's cool.
Einstein was a Gemini.
- So's that Scottish gal from Garbage.
- Will you go help Jake with his pyjamas?
- If she's late...
- Lisa, I swear to God,...
...start with the Dionne Warwick stuff,
I'll throw you out the f***in' window.
- So please help him with the pyjamas.
- Love you, too, Tom!
Hey, this is great. I mean it.
It's about time we had another kid.
I was gonna bring it up myself.
- This time, you gotta take some time off.
- Please! We can't afford that!
- We can. I'm gonna hit the overtime again.
- I don't want you to work those hours again.
You come home in a trance.
You're completely useless to me.
I'm gonna be fine, OK?
I'm just gonna tell Teddy
to get somebody else for the thing.
- Oh, God! Oh, Tom!
I'm sorry. I completely forgot.
I'm not pissed off. I just...
No, I'm... I'm not. I'm not.
I'm a grown man. I shouldn't be screwing
around with some shitty band anyway.
Hey, look, I-I... I gotta go change.
You know, put on something cool.
I love you.
I'm... I'm a happy guy.
You know, I'm not gonna be a lineman
forever, I promise you that.
I clip... clip wire all day.
Yeah, but they're gonna
move you into the office soon.
No, I meant, when we first got together, I said
a lotta stuff about what I was gonna be,...
...and I just wanted you to know that, uh...
I wasn't giving you some kinda line,...
...that I meant it.
I didn't marry you because I thought
you were gonna be famous.
I just liked the way your ass looked in jeans.
I never wanted to be famous. I just, uh...
I didn't expect to be... so...
I don't know.
Hang on! Hang on!
You know, I hope it's a girl.
I'm kinda sick of all these balls
around the house. Except for yours, babe.
What are the odds on an educated single man
being at this thing?
And I don't mean a GED!
- Does it matter if he's on the boner pill?
- I wouldn't look a gift-boner in the mouth.
Nice - that's very nice, Lisa!
- Hey! How you been?
- Hey, Tom, Tom, Tommy! How ya doin'?
Oh, you would not believe the day I had.
- Take this. I'll get another.
- Tom. Taking care of the place for me?
We're drilling holes all over your floors!
I hope you don't mind.
Tom, you know my squaw Sheila.
- Drink up! Take your medicine.
Tom, how do you like the neighbourhood?
I grew up in Bridgeport,
so it's not like it's a foreign country.
