Mrs. Ludlow? You ready?


- Hey.

- Hi.

Can I... Is it gonna hurt?

No, it's fine.


- Is this all your stuff?

- Mm-hmm.

- Uh... You sure?

- Yeah.

- Nice meeting you.

- Yeah. Have a great day.

- I think I...

- I got it.


- Come on, Katy.

- What?

I can put a seat belt on.






What am I supposed to say?

You can say anything you want.

Come on.

Where's Philip?

He's asleep. He's exhausted.

What should I do?

Just put it somewhere.

I closed your wireless account.


What do you want to do about

all your stuff in the city?

You've got some clothes here

in the closet

and I have some more stuff for you

in the attic, if you want.

I'm sure that'll do fine.

It's just like old times.

Hey, Daddy.

So, what happens now?

I'm guessing you give a speech

of some sort.

What do you want to do, El?

Something else.

I'm open to ideas.

I'm looking for

a part-timer on campus.

Was I such a different person

when I lived here?

It was, like, a thousand years ago.

You could take some classes.

Could we talk about it later?

What about Conor?


- Auntie Em!

- Hi.

Missed you.

I missed you.

What'd you guys do today, huh?

Chasing butterflies.

- Mm.

- I catched one.

- Really?

- "Caught. "

I caught one.

You did?

Jonah Greenbaum ate

a caterpillar at school.

That sounds pretty gross.

Yeah. Will he have a

butterfly in his tummy?

I don't know, honey.

Um, let's, let's give her some time

to get settled in, OK, babe?

- Bye, honey.

- Bye.

Do you need anything?

Nope. Thank you.

I'm going into town in a bit

if you want to join, get out?

Yeah. You yell up at me

when you're going?

- You ready?

- Yeah.

I feel like

I'm seven years old.

- Why?

- Being here with you.

You remember that time you and Mom took

Katy and me to see Cats for my birthday?

It was a wash for me.

We came in from New Haven.

Yeah, I remember.

I remember the train ride

better than anything.

We were all so gussied up.

Katy and me wearing those

silly matching dresses,

standing on the seats,

looking out at everything,

pointing at this and that.

Everything seemed so limitless.

It was.

It still is.

How many more times do you think

I'll remember that moment?


It was such a good moment,

but I'll probably only...

...remember it a couple of more

times in my life, if that.

Mm, I suppose so.

Whoa, hey. Hey, El.


- Hey, Stu.

- Wow.

- Hey. All right.

- You remember my father?

- Hey. How are you?

- Good, thanks.


You're Conor's chef.

Yeah. Yeah, I'm his chef.


How's the restaurant?

Good. Good.

We're doing good.

Everything's all right.


El, you have to register.

We- we have to head off.

All right, yeah, I got to get this back

to the restaurant, but it's good to...

- Good to see you.

- Yeah, you, too.

Hey, if you ever want

to get, like, coffee or...

or something...

you know, shoot me a text

- or call or something.

- OK.

Good seeing you.

- So, Lillian is expecting you.

- Mm-hmm.

She and I were colleagues at NYU.

I know. You told me.

You have...

- pencils and notebooks and all that?

- Yes, Dad.

I have class, and, um...

then I have patients...

so I guess I'll...

see you at the house

later tonight.


- Hey, El?

- Yeah?

Have a good first day.

I Will.

How's the weather down there?

- Balmy.

- Do we have an appointment?

I'm Eleanor Rigby.

That must be tough.

I'm here to talk my way

into your Identity Theory class.

Oh, you're Julian's kid.

I need some caffeine.

You're welcome to walk with me.
