Neal, come on, wake up.

Hey, come on, kid, get up.

We're almost home.

How long was I out?

All the way from the airport,

about three hours.

What, didn't you sleep

last night?

Looks about the same around here.

Yeah, yeah.

The, um...

snow just all came off last week.

It was real nice.

You would've...

You would've liked it.


Too bad I had to miss it then.

So I guess it's a lot, uh...

a lot warmer in Florida, huh?

Depends on

what you mean by warm.

See you still got

that mumbling thing.

I don't know.

You see, Aunt Sara

didn't seem to care if I talked or not.

Actually, Sara cared a lot.

Could've fooled me.



You know, kid,

when someone takes your ass in

and doesn't kick it out

after two years,

that's 'cause

they actually give a sh*t.

And she didn't want you gone,

if that's what you think,

either, okay?

It's 'cause the new lady

wants to meet me, right?

So you did read

the letters I sent you then.


Well, I didn't know one way

or the other, you know.

Response would have been nice.

I had some,

but they weren't very nice.

What does Paulie think of her?

Paulie thinks the world of her.

Which is one of the reasons

why I decided

to move forward with her.

And one of the big reasons

why she wants to get to know you.

How is Paulie?

He's fine.

He's good.

Aw, sh*t.


I'm sorry. Come on.

It's gonna be all right.

Come on.


It was Angela's idea.

I'm gonna love her.

Hey, come on, this is important

to her, all right?

So just try and remember

what a smile is

and slap it on your face

for a few minutes, please?


Oh, my! Oh, my!

Oh, so nice

to finally meet you, honey!

This is Angela, obviously.

Oh, welcome home.

I'm Angela.

Oh, so nice to see you.

You know,

you must be very hungry.

You want something to eat,

something to drink?

I mean, I've made plenty of...

...in person.

You really are a cutie!

- Oh!

- Where's Paulie?

Yeah, where is

your youngest, Hausman?

I figured he'd be out here

dancing for joy to have Neal back.

Oh. Uh, well,

you know, Paul's, uh...

Taking a nap, actually.

Yeah, he's had a little fever recently,

and he's just getting over it.

You know, we just want

to keep him rested for school tomorrow.

Hey, Neal, you remember me, right?

Mr. Evans.

Hey, kept an eye on your dad

while you were staying

at your aunt's.

Made sure he didn't

get into any trouble.

Are you sure about that?

I think he snuck in a new wife

when you weren't looking.

Yeah, anyway, you remember my boys,

Richard and Roger?

Hey, guys.

They've been talking

nonstop about you

ever since they heard

you were coming back.

Hey, we would love to have you over

for our own little welcome back.

You know, you and your brother

can come over for dinner,

you can stay the night,

we'll hang out.

- It'll be great.

- Thanks.

I'm gonna go tell Paulie.

All right, great.

Great to see you...



Hey, Cara.

I'm sorry I left

without saying good-bye.

We just left, like, overnight.

It's okay.

I'm sorry I never got

the chance to say sorry

about, you know, what happened.


Hey, Cara?

Gonna marry that nut job?

You better keep him

away from matches.

Shut up!

I'm sorry.

My brothers are idiots.

It's okay.

My brother's inside,

so I should go.


It's good seeing you, Neal.

It's gorgeous.






Paulie, Jesus Christ!

You really scared me, buddy.

You're not Neal.

No, of course, I am.

It's really me, Paulie.

Prove it.


Well, Dad, probably flipped out

when he found out

about these, right?
