What's that, honey?

I just woke up with it.


I thought maybe I would

put it to use.

Oh, shit.

God damn.


- You okay?

- Just a second.

Mom! Dad!

Toilet is not working again!

Why can't she just use

the bathroom downstairs?

Because she's a girl,

and her stuff's in there.

I know.

She has to get ready for school.


just go look at it, please.


Okay. Okay.


- Okay.

- Thank you.




Just fix it!

Just give me a second, sweetie.


Hey, Estelle.

Um, can I talk to you

and ray for a second?

Yeah, let me just get decent.

Okay, come on in!

Hey. Happy...

Happy birthday, ray.

Oh, Brian, that is so sweet

of you to remember.

Oh, good heavens!

I'm hanging out here!

You didn't see my nipple,

did you?

No, no Ni...

No nipples.

He's gonna take a minute

to find his trousers.

Can't a man get any privacy?

Since when did you

become so bashful?

- What?

- -I said, since when

did you become so bashful?

Now, listen,

I don't want

to embarrass anyone,

but I think we all

need to be

a little more conscious

of what we put in the toilet.

All I did was take a bath,

but I suppose

I can't do that anymore

without being persecuted

by my son-in-law.

Nobody is pointing

any fingers, ray.

It's just that that toilet

can be a little bit finicky.

Yes, it is.

Well, perhaps you would

like to accompany me

the next time I take a bath?

That won't be necessary.

Are those my slippers?

Add slippers

to the shopping list.

I don't even

want to know what that means.

Hey, honey?

What do you think of these?

Oh, are those the new fabrics?

Yeah, they're for my meeting

with Stamford and Miller


They're actually considering

putting them

in their

Armonk and Darien stores.

- Is that right?

- Yeah.

- They look amazing.

- Thank you.

- Are you on-site today?

- Uh, no, tom's coming over

in a few minutes,

we're gonna go look at the...

Hey, Annie! You're gonna be late

for school, sweetie!

- I'm coming!

- All right.

Hey, Nick called yesterday

and he want to stay

- in Boise for labor day.

- You told him that was okay?

I just spent $500

on Yankee tickets.

You spend $500 on tickets

but you refuse to put

a decent septic system

in your house?

Dad. I'm sure you can find

somebody that will go with you.

Raymond, did you do something

with my reading glasses?

What the hell would I do

with your reading glasses?

That is not the point.

This is our tradition.

I mean... labor day, baseball,

father, son,

- since he was eight years old.

- Yeah, but now he's 19,

and he wants to stay at college

with his friends.

Okay? I'm sorry.

Okay, everybody,

Missy's picking me up.

We're having lunch

with the girls.

I will see you all

at dinner tonight.

Please, please do not be late.

- Annie, guess what?

- Okay.

Your grandmother says it's okay

to bring that Colt kid

to dinner tonight,

so there you go.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We're gonna be late.

Let's go, let's go, let's go.

- Thank you! I love you!

- Let's go, let's go.

- Get off the phone. Let's go.

- Bye!

- Mom, I'm coming!

- Go. Go. Go. Go.

- Go. Go.

- All righty.

Since you were four years old,

I can't get you

out of the house on time.

- Annie, get in this car!

- I'm coming!

It's going on a month now.

Every night this kid's

in the bed with us.

- I mean, every night.

- Well, what did you expect?

What do you mean,

what do I expect?

I expected the kid

to be sleeping in his bed.

I mean, when...

When am I gonna have sex?

This kid's becoming

a human chastity belt!
