It's time to show the whole world...

That America is back again.

Bigger, better and stronger...

Than ever before.

Mom, it's me. Are you ready?

Jane will be here any minute.

I made a cake for dad.

Tell me this is a joke.


- Hey, Lillian.

I'm glad I got you alone.

I wanted to tell you that if you get busy

with your mom at the hospital...

I'm more than happy to look in on your dad..

- But they are not here, the house is empty.

I tried to call but I think mom has turned off the

cellphone we bought her.

Come to think of it, I heard someone

turning on an engine this morning.

Very early.

- What engine? Dad's car is right here.

My god.

Jane, mom and dad are gone.

And you won't believe it:

So is the Leisure Seeker.

Take a right here.

That's it, good.

You couldn't have worn something more comfortable

to travel in?

And I think you're exaggerating a bit

with the Cologne.

But you smell nice.


Did you fart?

- Excuse me?

You did.

- I did not.

Can't be talking like that, what are you saying?

Hon, do we need gas?

We need gas.

Let's stop at Stuckey's, we can get one of those

pecan bars.


- Alice Stuckey's, hon.

Try to remember.

- OK boss.

Just as you say. Like always.

Yeah, right.

Hey, are you crazy?

Is the store closed? We really wanna

to have one of those delicious pecan bars.

Opening soon. Just gas now.

- No, did you hear that, hon?

Every summer we'd head south

but we always stopped at Stuckey's.

Our kids Jane and will, they just had to have their

pecan loads.

We always went to south Carolina.

- That's where I'm from.

But my husband John, on the other hand, is

100 percent northerly yankee. Born and bred.

They were wonderful trips. Weren't they, John?

I guess I'm just a natural born tourist.

I love to travel.

Smoky mountains, six flags,

williamsburg... do you ever been to those places?

We are from Syria.

- You are? How interesting.

Well, you should go. They are amazing.

91 dollars, sir.

- Yes, of course.

My husband, John, on the other hand, he's a

much more sophisticated traveler then I am.

He thinks travel should broaden

an electoral horizon.

Whatever that's supposed to be.

I just love chatting with different people.

Here, here you are.

- Have a nice trip.

Let's roll, hon. Nice visiting with you.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

What a nice woman.

She found one in the store room.

The expiration date is...

My goodness, last April.

I think it still be alright.

Would you like a little taste hon?

I want a burger.

- It's not lunchtime yet.

I want a burger.

Hi my name is Chantal and I will be your server.

Hi Chantal, I'm Ella and this

is John. Guess you are stuck with us.-

can I recommend a Chalichat, only $9.99.

It comes with a

burger, large fries, a slice of

apple pie and a happy swirl.

A happy swirl?

I have no idea what that could be,

but it sure sounds promising.

- I want a burger. - Well, we'll have

a Chalichat for mister grumpy here.

OK, and you madam?

- Just water.

Nothing to eat?

- I'll just have a sip of his happy swirl. - OK.

And would you like anything else to drink?

Coke, beer? - No, that'll be fine, thank you.

I want a burger. Burger, please?

That'll be all Chantal, thank you.

You're welcome.

I'm just going to stretch my legs.

You stay put.

Do not move, right?

I know, doctor Machovsky, I'm fully aware.

I'm not sure what else to say.

Just hoping they haven't gone too far away.

I understand.

OK, my brother just pulled on.

See if he knows anything.


- I checked all the supermarkets: Nothing.

I seem to remember it was your brilliant idea to
