Bless us, O lord,

and these thy gifts.

Which we are about to receive.

From thy bounty,

through Christ, our lord,


What the hell's

wrong with that dog?

I don't know.

I'm in here with you.

Well, go check.


You forget how to eat?

Lost my appetite.

Well, go find it somewhere else.

Table's meant for eating.

What the hell?



What the...

I won!

The screaming contest champion.

Once again is

dear old d-A-D.

I'm bad at that.

I've traveled for millions.

And millions of miles,

And I'm very, very hungry.

do you have any carrots?


You don't?

How do you know that carrots

are good for your eyes?

Because you never see

a rabbit wearing glasses.


All right.

Your turn.

Are you done with this?


Are you sure?

Going, going, gone.

Do you know what a rabbit's.

Favorite tent style is?

You call this a cabin?

Yeah, what would you call it?

Hmm, I don't know.

A second home?

Okay, it's our second home.

Wakey, wakey, boss.

We're here.

Don't go too far, Liam.

Oh, he'll be fine.

Aw, crap.


Hey. It's gonna

be great.

I really hope so.


You like?

Just relax,

and I'll get some dinner ready.

Why is it so hot in here?

The thermostat is cranked.

Don't sit there.


She can't sit there.

Oh, I'm sorry.

It's okay. Yes, you can.

Hey, we talked about this.

That isn't her chair!

Hey, boss...

I'm sorry. Are you all right?

You can sit there.

Hey, Liam...


Liam, I want you to

come back inside.

And apologize to Sarah.

Did you hear me?

That isn't her chair.

It's everybody's chair.

It's mommy's chair.

I know things haven't

felt good lately.

And I'm not asking you

to forget about mommy.

I'm never gonna forget her.

But we can't

change what happened.

All we can do.

Is choose what's

going to happen.

Will you come back

inside, please,

And apologize to Sarah?

She cares about you.

She deserves to be

given a chance.


Okay, fine.

Then you can have your phone back.

When you apologize to Sarah.


What the hell?




What is it?

What... what

happened in here?

Nothing. Listen,

stay with Sarah.

Don't let him out of your sight.

I gotta find how they got in.

Yeah. Why don't you

show me your room?

Happens more often than

people would like to admit.

Kids see a house boarded

up for the winter,

And they spend a week partying,

drinking, you name it.

Then they move on.

And there's no way

of catching them?

Nah, it's pretty rare,

unless the neighbors saw,

And they get a license plate,

But that's even rarer still.

But don't you dust

for fingerprints.

Or clothing fibers or something?

Not a "b and e," no.

You watch too much TV.

What about the blood?

Yeah, well,

We know at least one of

those drunken teenagers.

Was a female.

Anything missing?

I can't find my mouse.

What's that about mouse,

there, young fella?

Oh, that's, um,

that's his stuffed mouse.

Don't worry, boss.

I'm sure it's under the bed or something.

I looked under the bed.

He isn't there.

Well, I'm sorry, but, uh,

I can't file a report

for anything under $100.

You know what, buddy?

You should come up

here more often.

Either that or hire somebody.

Get 'em to stop in

every once in awhile.

Mow the lawn.

This really didn't have to happen.

Yes, well, it's been

a busy year.

Listen, uh,

This is gonna sound odd.


My wife... it's her

first time up here.

It's our first time

anywhere as a family.

Newlyweds, huh? Yes.

Just a few months ago,

And I really need them

to feel safe.

This is my card.

That's my personal number.
