Good. It was good.

Eat your breakfast.

ABBY I don't ke it.

You do too. Stop coloring.

I'm impressed you're keeping it up.

What brand is this?

They're the same.

Daddy, look, it's your team.


Oh. Hey. That's my team.

That's great, honey. Are they winning?


That's more like it. Oh, oh.


Aw. Hey, hey.

Sweetheart, do not use words like that.

That's a bad word. Okay?


Yes, that is a bad word.

Yes, it is.

What? Don't look at me.

Mm-hm. Okay.

Goodbye, sweetie. Goodbye, jellybean.


Bye, Daddy.


You okay?

Yeah, I'm good. Why?

Just checking.

Okay. Bye, guys.


Can I have more juice?

Mike! Did you call Fenn about the tree?

No. I will today.

Please do. I don't want it coming down

on the house.

Yeah, you're right. I will.

Love you.

I love you too, sweetie. Bye.




I'm down here.

What's up, Vig?

Donna's out sick. I can't find

anything without her. This sucks.

Who was that guy?

Oh. That sucks more.

That's the p umber. I called him

to look at this piece-of-crap boiler.


Because it clanks and it's

driving me crazy. You don't hear this?

I hear it. I just figured that it's old, so...

He said we have to replace it

because it's gonna blow.

What? We just had it fixed

like three months ago.

He said that job was crap.

That guy did crap work.

Can you believe that? That little scumbag.




How much to fix it? Did he say?

Ah, 6 grand.

Holy sh*t!

That's right.

Holy sh*t!

Tell me about it.

And I gotta tell you, I'm not doing great.

My bus ness is off,

and my stepson wants to get the Lasik.

Really? Isn't he k nd of young for that?

You know, I really don't care.

If he wants to get Lasik and it

makes him happy, then he can have it.

Okay, so, uh...

...what you want to do here?

Okay. I was thinking...

...let's just leave it for now. We just...

...put plastic on the files.

What you thinking?

That sounds great. That's good.

For now.

Yeah, fine.

Let's get out of here

before this thing blows.

I'll get some plastic

before practice.


Good morning, Shelly. How you doing?

A little hungover. My boyfriend's a moron.

I'm sorry to hear that.

How'd the team do last night?

We lost.



Your noon cance ed.

so you just have the 10:30 and the 3:00.

Anything else?

The toilet's not flushing again.

Should I call someone this time?

No, I' I take a look at it.

Who have I got at 10:30?


You think your son stole t?

Yeah, I know he did.


Why would he steal your cat?

He's jealous of her. Very jealous.

Wow. I can see why.

It's a nice-looking cat.

Oh, yeah.

What's Vig doing with that plastic?

Who knows?

Leo, remember you got lost

and the police had to help you a few times.

That's why we got Jolie to help you.


So, what do we do now?

If that judge deems you incapacitated,

you'll need a guardian.

If we can't find your daughter-

She can't even find herself.

Okay. if we can't find her, then the state

will become your guardian.

What state?


You know, the state... of New Jersey.

That's crazy.

I don't need New Jersey's help.

I got Jolie. And there's nothing

going on between us, so you know.

Okay. I'm sure that there's not. Uh...

Let's first try to find your daughter,

and then we'll go from there, okay?

Am I still hungover

or is that noise getting louder?

You're probably still hungover, Shelly.

We got copies of Leo's financial
