It's today! It's today!

It's today! It's today!

It's today! It's today! It's today!

It's always today, George.

- I mean, this is the day.

- That's right.

- Can't I come?

- You have to go to school, George.

- Will he be here when I get home?

- I think so.

I'll play ball with him. I'll wrestle with him.

I'll teach him how to spit.

- It's gonna be so much fun.

- For all of us.

- How will you know if you pick the right one?

- I don't know. We'll...

- You'll just know.

- Bye, sweetie.

Remember, I want a little brother,|not a big brother.

We've been through your paperwork,|and it seems to be in order.

Adoption isn't for everyone...

...but you seem like people|with plenty of love to share.

- So how are you feeling?

- Goodness, we're...

- Tingling...

- ...with anticipation.


Time for you to meet them.

Feel free to walk around.|They're used to having strangers.

Thank you.

Lovely people.

Nice move, Red.

Oh, Frederick, look at them.

- How could we possibly...?

- Choose? I know.

- They all seem so...

- Wonderful.

You know what's wonderful? What's wonderful is... you both know what|the other one is gonna say...

...before you even say it.

Not that It's any of my business.

Yes, that happens when you've

been together as long as we have.

From being a family.

Family. Wow. Well...

...for a family, you've certainly|come to the right place.

I think we can find just|what you're looking for.

If you want a girl,|Susan can read French.

And Edith over there can tap dance

while blowing bubbles.

Or maybe you wanted a boy.

- Actually, I think we were|leaning towards a boy.

- Well, in that case...

Benny can do handstands.

Andy can run 100 yards faster than

you can say, ''Ready, set, go.''

You certainly know a lot about

everyone, don't you?

That's what happens when you've been

here as long as I have.

Let's face it. Not everyone wants to

adopt someone like me.

You shouldn't worry about choosing.

It happens the same way every time.

First, you won't know what to do.

You'll be a bit scared.

Then you'll meet one of them.

You'll talk to him. Somehow... just know.

Are you quite certain you're prepared

to handle his uniqueness?

Oh, my, yes. His uniqueness is a

perfect fit for the Little family.

Mr. and Mrs. Little, we try to

discourage couples...

...from adopting children|outside their own...


It rarely works out.

Well, it will in this case.

- Bye, Stuart!

- Bye! We'll miss you!

So what do I call you?

- Mom.

- And Dad.

We haven't told you the best news

of all. You have a brother.

Named George.

- A brother! What do I call him?

- George.

Well, Stuart, here we are, the family home.

- They say every Little can find this house.

- Even if they've never been here before.

It's just something inside them.

Something inside.

- So would you like a tour?

- I don't have any money.

That's Uncle Crenshaw, Cousin Edgar,

Grandpa Spencer.

That's Aunt Beatrice...and that's George, your brother.

Look, he's already happy to see me.

That's just about everybody,

except for...

- Snowbell! Drop him right now!

- You spit Stuart out this instant, Snowbell.

Spit him right now!

- Stuart, are you all right?

- Wait!

I'm fine.

- You must never harm Stuart.

You understand?

- Never, or out you'll go, Mr. Snow.

Stuart is family now. We do not eat family members.

Mom, Dad, I'm home! Is he here?

Is my brother here?

- He certainly is.

- Where is he?

He's here. Stuart, this is George.

George, this is Stuart, your new brother.

- No. Really?

- Really, George. This is your new brother.
