What are you doing

in my house?

We're gonna be late.

I got it.

There you are.

Who knew you had so much stuff?

Your dad is the Tetris king.

- She doesn't have to like it. Not why we're doing this.

- Where's Luke at?

He's at the ball park with his friends.

We're gonna pick him up...

- Jesus, we are late.

- You expect something else from this family?

No, I do not.

Ain't no way we're gonna

get there before dinner.

Uncle Marv said

he could leave a key.



Oh, boom!

Let's go!

Seat belt, missy.


We just started a new game.

Sorry, kiddo.

We're already late.

Hey, let me know how it goes.


Why can't I just

stay here for the weekend?

- By yourself? No, sir.

- All my friends do it.

- Yeah, exactly.

- Exactly.

Besides, it might be nice

for you to help your sister

move into her

new school tomorrow.

Hold on.

I'm gonna leave a message.

You smell horrible.

Hi, Uncle Marv.

It's Cindy.

We got a late start,

so we're not going to be

to Gatlin Lake until, um,

around 9:
00 or 10:00.

Hey, guys, cut it out.

We'll just stop for a bite.

Do you guys remember

Uncle Marv and Aunt Sheryl?

I remember Uncle Marv

smelled like wet dog and beer.

You know Mom and Dad are going broke over

sending you to boarding school, right?

Hey, we never said that.

Why else would you guys

have canceled the cable?

See? I was right.

- You think I wanted this?

- I think you like the attention.

- You're a dick.

- You're a queef.


What-what's queef?

Seriously, what's a queef?

- You want me to go get her?

- She's punishing us.

Folks need another couple

of minutes with the menus or...

Yeah, we're gonna... we're gonna

need a few, thank you.

I'll go.

Not even gonna

pretend, huh?

What difference

does it make?

What difference

does it make, right?

Just ditch those before

you get to your new school.

God forbid they kick me out.

Oh, they're not gonna

give up that easy.

No, no. Not like

you and Dad, huh?

I wish someone

had done this for me.

You turned out fine.

You didn't

know me back then.

I made mistakes.

A lot of them.

Teenagers do stupid sh*t, Mom.

I am a teenager.

This is more than

stupid sh*t, Kins.

This past year?

Sabrina, Laurie, none of them.

None of their parents

are sending them off.

Well, I'm not their mother.

I'm yours.

They're lucky.

And I am worried about you.

And now you won't

have to worry.

Be just the three of you again like

it always should have been, right?

You believe that?

There even anybody here?

I think everybody leaves

after Labor Day.

The office is

a little further down.

They left a note, said they'd

see us in the morning.

We're staying in number 47.

This is nice, right?

Mm. Cozy.

Okay, so, who's staying

in this trailer?

All of us.

Of course.


Is there someone else

staying here?

That's weird.

Hmm. Should I toss it?

What, are you

gonna eat it?

- Throw it out.

- It smells fine. It's beef and broccoli.

- Please do not eat that.

- I love it.

- There are no glasses.

- Just chug, woman.

Remember when we went

camping in the Rockies?

- That's exactly what I was referring to.

- Mm-hmm.

Is that Uncle Marv?

- Probably.

- He probably smelled the wine.

Mom, there's someone knocking.

No, don't get up.

I've got it.

It's a girl.


Can I help you?

Is Tamara home?

I think you have

the wrong trailer.


I didn't think anyone else

was staying here.

She must be lost.

All right, guys. You wanna

play some cards or something?

- Well, you and me.

- It's you and me.

You guys sure

you don't wanna join us?
