Do you recognize

anything around here?

Nope. Should I?

You've been here before.

We used to visit Grandpops all the

time when you were a toddler.

I'm really sorry, Mom.

I know, sweetie.

We're all gonna miss him.

Grandpops was a lovely man who,

ugh, boy, I can't even finish that.

Yeah, no, Grandpops was a cranky

old coot who hated everybody.

- He was nice to me.

- Of course he was.

Don't get me wrong,

I loved the old guy.

He... [chuckles]

...just had a funny way of

doing things, you know?

Oh, here we are.

It's the one with the

airplane in the front yard?

Oh, sweet! A plane!

The will said Grandpops

left us everything.

I didn't realize it

meant everything.

What do you think, Chauncey?

I think this carrying case

violates the Geneva Convention.

Bit of a fixer upper, huh?

Yeah.

You must be Grandpop's lawyer.

Not anymore.

Here are the keys to the house.

- Hey, how are ya?

- Oh, what a cute dog!

Oh, thanks.

I've been working out.

I'm glad you like him. He's yours.

He came with the estate.

He's been house-trained

but don't hold him to that.

Oh, and when he gets

excited he falls asleep.

Really?

He's narcoleptic?

Can a dog be narcoleptic?

Hey, boy!

What's your name?

Hey, I'm Skipper!

- Wanna go for a walk?

- Yeah, I wanna go for a walk!

- Wanna go for a walk?

- This is so exciting!

- This is so... [yawns]

- Come on, come on!

[snoring]

Hm.

I guess they can be narcoleptic.

[horn honks]

[dog farts]

I'm up, I'm up!

What'd I miss?

[lawyer] Welcome to Allentown!

I did it again, didn't I?

Did I fall asleep?

[exhales]

Well, here we are.

Hey, boy, I'm Jack.

What's your name?

What's my name?

What's in that cage?

Uh...

Skipper, huh? Hey, Mom,

the dog's name is Skipper.

[mom] Great.

Does he wanna help clean up?

What? No.

I'll let you two get acquainted.

Wait, you're just gonna leave me

here with this, uh, dog?!

OK, let me try something.

Uh, sit.

Hey, it works.

Hey, bud.

So, what do you think?

I think we should sell this

place as soon as possible.

There's a canoe

in the living room.

- Yeah.

- So, you're a cat, huh?

No, I'm a giraffe.

[Skipper] Wanna see the

basement? We have mice.

Well, I do like mice.

[Skipper] Come on.

Let's check it out.

I'll show ya.

Just down here.

But it's a pretty

nice town, right?

Yeah, I guess so.

What're you looking

at me like that for?

Look, there's, um...

...something I've been

meaning to tell you.

[clattering]

[gasps] What was that?

Uh, they said there might

be rats in the basement.

That sounds like a big rat.

Yeah.

That was the dog.

Oh, Chauncey.

Was that you making

all that racket? Come here.

[Chauncey] And I am

not cleaning it up.

Hey, check it out.

Look what I found.

Dog treats.

Let's crack this

bad boy open, Jack!

Hey there, Skipper.

What'd you find there, buddy?

I just told you, dog treats.

I don't know if you

wanna eat these, Skipper.

Contains propylene

glycol, arsenic,

and imported Soviet

cattle parts?

This bag is from 1973!

[Skipper] 1973!

Skipper, where are

you going, buddy?

[Skipper] Oh, boy, open

the door, open the door!

- I gotta go!

- Skipper?

Skipper, where are you going?

It's not gonna be pretty.

- Stay back, Jack.

- Skipper, wait up, bud.

Stay here if you know

what's good for you.

- Just trust me.

- Skipper, come on.

[yelps]

Who the heck are you?

Who the heck am I?

Who the heck are you?

I'm Jack.

This is, was my

Grandpop's place.

- What do you mean was?

- He, uh...

...passed away.

Oh, jeez.

- Sorry.

- What're you doing here?

[screams]

Run, Twyla!
