"And ere he blew three notes,

such sweet soft notes as yet a musician's

cunning never gave the enraptured air.

There was a rustling

that seemed like a bustling,

of merry crowds jostling

and pitching and hustling.

Small feet were pattering,

wooden shoes clattering.

Little hands clapping

and little tongues


That's enough, Daddy.

Is it scaring you?

No, it's just,

I know the ending.

Let me close that for you.

All right?

I'm not afraid anymore.

It's just

a nice old tree.

Good-bye, Daddy.

I think you mean

"good night," sweetheart.

You only say good-bye when you're

going away for a long time.

Oh, yeah. I forgot.

Good night.

Good night, love.

Get some sleep.

Sometimes I wish we could just

freeze her in time. You know?

Keep her our little kid


Selfish, I know.Mmm.

All parents feel that way,

I think.

Sometimes I just wanna grab her

by the shoulders and say,

"I love you.

Stop growing up."

I hear you.

Did you hear that?





Call the police.

Wh-What is it? Just call the police!





where is she? I don't know.

- Emma!

- Emma!

- Daddy!

- Emma!



This is insane.


He's not a threat.

He is nine years old.

And how old are you?

What does that have

to do with anything?

Maybe he's not the threat

Officer Frank is worried about.

Ever think of that?

What did you want me to do?

Just let them bully him?

Your mom's gonna be here soon.

Shouldn't be long.

They don't pay me enough

for this crap.

You going somewhere?

We were coming out

to meet you.Uh-huh.

Okay, in the car. Let's go.

Michael. Come on.

Come on, bud.

Put your feet in.

Feet in.

Too fast.

Hey, Doris.

I'm so sorry.

You have

my sympathies.

Anna, hey.Hi.

- Officer Frank.

- Oh. Hey.

Hey, Noa.Hi.


I just need to talk to your mom for a minute.


I mean,

he's an imaginative kid.

You know Michael.

I mean,

it's been a while.

Well, I mean,

I've been working a lot.

It's not like I have free time,

like, to do things.

Is this

really necessary?

Well, he... he told the principal

he heard naughty voices

telling him

to do very, very bad things.

So what does that mean? I don't know.

But, you know, in today's world,

with the schools,

we can't take any chances,

you know.

He's a little kid! I know.

But it's a thin line between

imaginative and troubled.

Oh, now he's "troubled"?

This is... I... I don't know. I don't...

No, I don't think so.

No. He's... He's just...

I think that...

I think he's just a lonely kid,

that's all.

I don't know what to do

about that.

I have to work. A lot.

So that we can live.

Well, I mean, if you didn't delete my number,

you know, it's 911.

You gotta tell me something,


What's going on at school?

What's happening?

I need you

to tell me something.

Jesus, Noa!

I have a paper to do.


Seat belt.

Jesus! Oh. Sorry.

I didn't mean to... Scare me?

Yeah. I didn't...

I'm sorry. Uh, I just...


I wanted to say,

just before you left, if you, uh...

if you need me to come by, make dinner, check

on 'em, or check on you, or, you know...

If I'm not working, or even

if I'm working, I could... Okay.

Oh, my God.

Now they're flirting.

Stop it. You stop.

Stop being so weird. Look what you

do with your freaking weirdness.

I can't deal with

a mom relationship right now.

She doesn't have time

to date.

Is this your way of worming

your way back into my life?

Well, I take issue

with "worm."



Thank you. All right.


Be good to your mom.
