I'm talking about cheerleaders!|I mean, you got to love them!

-Same old Marcus.|-Yeah. Yeah.

-I wanna go!|-It's for grown-ups only.

That's right. Remember we went|to Disney World and I told you,

"Not this time. It's gonna be me|and your mom." Remember?

-Okay.|-And what do you know about it, Kenya?

It's you, Aunt Pat and Uncle Gavin,

Aunt Angela and Uncle Marcus

and Aunt Sheila and Uncle Mike.

What happened to Uncle Mike?

-They got divorced.|-What's a divorce?

-Who's taking that one?|-No.

Mom. Mom?

That's something you don't|have to worry about, baby,

because your mother and father|are never gonna get one.


-Okay.|-You are so good.

It's when two married people break up|because they hate each other.

They split up their children, house,|and their money.

They fight over everything,|and whoever has the best lawyer wins.


You wanted her in the private school.

That's exactly like you at that age.|Exactly, honey.

See, I got two of them.|Come on, baby. We gotta go.

You guys behave while we're gone, okay?

-We will.|-Be good. Be good. Have a good time.

If you need anything,|you know the numbers are all on the fridge.

I love you, too. Kiss Mama.

I'll see you later, okay?|Take care of yourself.

-See you later.|-Bye!

Okay, here's your decaf.

-Thanks, baby.|-The flight's a little delayed.

I know, I saw that.

Babe, what is it?

-What?|-Come on, tell me.

-What?|-I have watched you bounce up and down

this hall to go get the coffee|and come back.

You're just so happy.

-What's going on. What am I missing?|-No. I'm just so happy to see everybody.

It's gonna be so nice.

And without Mike, I'm sure it's gonna be|drama-free. It's gonna be great.

Yeah. Yeah, hopefully.

Why couldn't you just get my luggage?

I mean, what are you working out for?

-Is that them?|-That's not them.

That is them.

-Oh, my...|-Oh, please!

You better shut up, okay?

-It's always the same damn thing with you.|-You shut up.

Some rope and some duct tape and three|bags of concrete don't cost all that much.

I will bust a cap in that ass!

You watch my show, huh?

-All the time.|-Oh, my God.

-Me and my dad, we watch it together.|-Kelly...

I feel good!

Terry must be knocking it out the box

-for you to be smiling like that!|-Will you stop that?

You glowing, girl!
