It took a while

for it to get down.


Good catch.


You threw it over my head.

Okay, here we go. I got it.

Catch it.

Good catch.

All right. That's it.

That's how you do it.

You watching?

Now go just like this.

"And so the cowboys sat down

by the crackling campfire

they had prepared."

And roasted marshmallows?

And roasted marshmallows.

And popped popcorn. Heh.

And popped popcorn.

That's right.

And roasted hot dogs.

And roasted hot dogs!

How did you know that?

Hey, Daddy, will you be home

in time for my birthday?

I wouldn't miss it

for the world, sport.

There you go, buddy.

That's great, hon.

I know you'll get it,

Salesman of the Year for sure.

Just wish you didn't have to

go on the road so much.

I ordered the cake,

and the balloons arrive

on Thursday.

What time do you leave?

Just waiting for takeoff.

Okay, well, we really need

to go on a trip, like, soon.

We will, I promise.

Oh, and, honey,

if you have time,

can you pick up a space shuttle

souvenir for Bobby?

I Will.

You know what?

I'm gonna let you go, okay?

Have a safe flight.

I'll call you when I get to Houston.

- Okay.

- I love you.

I love you.


Oh, God.

Got you.



The back door is always locked.

I don't even understand

how he could have opened it.

Well, you got lucky this time.

Thank you.

- We'll see you later.

- Thank you.

Okay, sweetie pie.

Hey, hon.

Hey, hon.

Plane got in early.

I'll be there soon.

Do you need me

to pick anything up?

No. Just get home.

We've missed you.

Hows my little guy doing?

I just put him to bed

a little while ago.

You know, I'm starting to think

that you went out of town

on purpose.

Prepping a five-year-old's

birthday party isn't easy.

What'd the doctor say?

He's fine. He's fine.

He just swallowed some water.

Are we sure that was a dog?

Maybe it was a coyote.

They've been seen a lot

in the neighborhood lately.

All I can tell you

is it saved Bobby's life.

After the 18th,

no more out-of-town meetings

for a while.

Really? Hmm, that's great news.

I don't like it

when you go out of town,

and Bobby needs his father around.

I get lonely when you're away.

Things are going to change, hon.

Hey, I'll see you in 20.


Well, Bobby,

tell me how you feel.

I'll be right back, Bobby.

Well, it seems that Bobby

has acquired acute agoraphobia.

What is that?

It's a serious anxiety condition

that can affect the way

in which a child or an adult

deals with everyday, normal

social activities and interaction.

In Bobby's case,

it was undoubtedly triggered

by the loss of his father.

He has been acting like that

ever since Jack died.


Why don't you show me

one of those magic tricks

that Dr. Abernack taught you?



Where did it go?

That was so good.

It's magic. That was good.

Well, you're not a coyote,

are you?

Can we keep him?


Well, he doesn't seem

to have a name tag.

It's just this... this old key.

Does it unlock something?

I don't know.

Be careful, sweetie.

We don't know if he's friendly.

Oswald. His name is Oswald.

Ozzy. Heh.

He seems friendly.

Well, honey,

don't get too attached.

He might belong

to somebody else.

He might be missing.

This little guy,

This little guy,

he's going to help Bobby...

control his agoraphobia.

Dogs are amazingly

spiritual animals.

They've been assisting people

with medical conditions

for centuries now.

One might even call them

magical. Heh heh.

He still has anxieties

about socializing.

The dog has become

his security blanket,

his confidant.

So Ozzy's going to bring him out

into the world and not be afraid.

May I help you?

I've come to retrieve my dog.

Your... Your dog?

You're Ozzy's owner?

Yes. Troublesome little creature.

He escaped from his dwellings.

Well, it's been

quite some time.

After a few months,

we figured he didn't have a home.

Why didn't you contact us sooner?

I live far away,

quite far.

Bobby has become

pretty attached to this dog.

I- I'

I would like to see

my dog, please.

Do you have anything

that you can show me

that-that he is your dog?

How did... How did you

get this address?

We only put our phone number

on the poster.

911. There's a man trying

to break into my house.

Bobby, stay in your room!

Close the door!


One day, I'm going to be

the greatest magician in the world.

Ozzy, pick a card.

We'll shuffle.

Is this your card?

Thank you. Thank you.

Another few weeks, please?

Another few weeks, please?

I know my payment is late.

Please, can't you extend

the grace period?

I've never been delinquent

on my mortgage before.

I recently lost my job,

and my husband...


several years ago.

I've managed this long.

Please, just another few weeks?

Come on. Let's go.

Come on, Ozzy.

Okay, be good. Have fun.

Hey, can we pet your service dog,

you little wuss?

Hey, leave him alone.

Pick on someone your own size.

Oh, are you his girlfriend?

Are those your girlfriends?

Hey, give me back my backpack.

Give it... Give it to me!

Come on.

Give it back!

Throw something at me again,

and you're dead meat.

Leave him alone!

Let's get out of here.



Help me, please.

Ozzy. Call somebody?


Hi. What can I get for you?

Can I have a milkshake?

Sure. What kind?

- Chocolate.

- Okay.


If you leave

My life will become...

Hey, kid! No dogs allowed.
