According to Jim (2001–2009): Season 7, Episode 5 - Cheryl Goes to Florida - full transcript

Cheryl goes to Florida to care for her mother when she is sick, leaving Jim alone to take care of the children. When neighborhood mom's find out Jim is struggling at home, they all pitch in to help. Each one thinks they are the only helper.

(Southern accent)
MORNIN', Y'ALL.

AND WHAT A FINE DAY
IT IS, TOO.

ANDY, WHAT THE HELL?

WHAT ARE YOU DRESSED
LIKE COLONEL SANDERS FOR?

HOW DARE YOU, SIR?
WHA...

THIS IS HOW A SOUTHERN MAN
OF LEISURE DRESSES FOR TRAVEL.

ANDY, YOU'RE NOT TRAVELING
FOR... (deep voice) LEISURE.

YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE
OF MOM IN FLORIDA.

(normal voice) PLEASE.

I FIGURE AS SOON AS I HIT
THE SUNSHINE STATE,

I'LL TAKE HER TO THAT
ALLIGATOR FARM BY THE FREEWAY.



NOTHING CHEERS YOU UP MORE

THAN THROWING LIVE CHICKENS
TO A GATOR.

ANDY, SHE BROKE HER HIP.
SHE'S BEDRIDDEN.

CAN YOU HANDLE THAT?

OF COURSE I CAN.
THERE'S NOTHING I CAN'T HANDLE.

YOU'RE GONNA COOK FOR HER?
HER FAVORITES.

YOU'RE GONNA CLEAN FOR HER?
TILL IT SPARKLES.

YOU'RE GONNA GIVE
HER A SPONGE BATH? OHH.

THANKS A LOT, JIM.

WHAT? WE WEREN'T GONNA TELL
HIM ABOUT THE SPONGE BATHS

TILL HE GOT THERE.

WOW. WHAT HAPPENED?

YOU FAINTED
BECAUSE YOU FOUND OUT

YOU HAVE TO GIVE YOUR
MOTHER SPONGE BATHS. OHH.



CRAP.

I KNOW. NOW YOU'RE
GONNA HAVE TO GO.

CHERYL, I HAVE
A VERY DIFFICULT BABY.

(Tanner crying)

OH, THERE, THERE.
LOOKS LIKE IT'S YOU.

WELL, I HAVE THREE KIDS...

AND THIS ONE.

I AM A HANDFUL.

COME ON. WE ALL KNOW
THAT IF I LEAVE,

THIS PLACE IS GONNA FALL
APART. YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.

NO ONE'LL BE HERE
TO WATCH SOAP OPERAS OR RECYCLE.

OH.

CHERYL, YOU CAN GO. COME ON.
IT'S ONLY FOR A WEEK OR SO.

I'LL BE FINE. I'LL HANDLE
EVERYTHING. ARE YOU SURE?

YEAH, IT'S YOUR MOTHER.
IT'S FAMILY. GO. (Cheryl) OH.

OHH.
OH, EVERYTHING'S SPINNING.

AM I DEAD?
WHY AM I IN THIS WHITE SUIT?

BECAUSE YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY
TO FLORIDA

TO GIVE YOUR MOM
A SPONGE BATH.

(clears throat) RIGHT, RIGHT.

I CAN HANDLE THAT.

YEAH, IT'LL BE EASIER
THAN CHANGING HER DIAPER.

OHH.

♪♪♪

ALL RIGHT, LOSER,
CHERYL'S BEEN GONE FOR TWO DAYS.

SHE WANTED ME TO MAKE SURE

THE KIDS WEREN'T
STARVING TO DEATH.

I'M NOT HELPLESS.
I GOT DINNER FOR THEM.

WELL, YEAH, BUT THEY PROBABLY
DON'T HAVE ANY CLEAN CLOTHES.

(buzzer)

LAUNDRY.

WELL, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING
THAT CHERYL DOES AROUND HERE

THAT ISN'T
BEING TAKEN CARE OF.

YES, THERE IS.

BUT IF I GET
THAT DESPERATE,

I'LL GO TO ANDY
BEFORE I GO TO YOU.

ALL RIGHT.
WELL, IF HE NEEDS A DRESS,

I STILL HAVE
MY MATERNITY CLOTHES.

KIDS, COME ON! DINNER!

(singsong voice)
I GOT YOU SOME GOOD FOOD.

WHAT ARE WE HAVING?

TACOS FROM
THE WORLD'S GREATEST DAD.

WHERE'S KYLE? OH, I THOUGHT
HE WAS UPSTAIRS WITH YOU.

YOU WERE SUPPOSED
TO PICK HIM UP.

I WAS?

WHERE IS HE?

AT KARATE,
NEXT TO THE TACO PLACE.

DAMN. I KNEW
I FORGOT SOMETHIN'!

ALL RIGHT, UH,
IF YOUR MOM CALLS,

UH, GRACIE, UH...
YOU'RE KYLE.

WHO AM I?

UH... YOU'RE ME.

(doorbell rings)

OH, PLEASE BE KYLE.
PLEASE BE KYLE. PLEASE BE KYLE.

OH, KYLE, KYLE!
I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE.

IS THAT WHY YOU LEFT ME
AT KARATE?

(laughs)

MARY BETH, RIGHT?
YEAH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR BRINGING KYLE HOME.

OH, WELL, I SAW KYLE
SITTING ON THE BENCH

OUTSIDE THE KARATE STUDIO,

AND I HEARD CHERYL WAS
OUT OF TOWN, SO... OH! (laughs)

I DON'T KNOW
HOW I LOST HIM THERE.

YOU MUST'VE SNUCK OUT
THE BACK DOOR.

I WAVED AT YOU.
YOU JUST DROVE AWAY.

ALL RIGHT,
GO FOR DINNER.

OKAY, HOW MUCH DO I PAY YOU
NOT TO TELL CHERYL?

OH. OH, NO, NO, NO, NO.
DON'T EVEN WORRY ABOUT IT.

I KNOW MY HUSBAND WOULD BE
IN A PANIC IF I LEFT TOWN. OH, WOW.

YOU KNOW, ARE YOU SURE
THERE ISN'T ANYTHING I CAN DO

TO HELP YOU OUT WHILE CHERYL
IS AWAY? NO, NO, NO, I'M FINE.

MY TACOS ARE A LITTLE COLD,
BUT I'M FINE. OKAY. ARE YOU SURE?

YOU KNOW, 'CAUSE I COULD HELP
OUT WITH DRIVING THE KIDS AROUND

AND MAYBE DROP OFF
A NICE STEW.

WOULD THAT STEW BE BEEF?

OH, LOOK, IT'S AMERICA'S
FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE.

WHERE'S THE APRON?
IN THE WASHING MACHINE?

(laughs) YOU KNOW, ANDY,
YOU WERE FUNNIER

IN THAT GAY WHITE SUIT
YOU WERE WEARING.

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

CRACKERS AND OLIVES.
WHO DIED?

OH, GOD, NOT MOM!

OH, I SHOULDA BEEN THERE!

NO, SETTLE DOWN.

SUSAN MADE ME A LITTLE
CRACKER AND CHEESE PLATTER.

WHO THE HELL'S SUSAN?

HI. I'M SUSAN.

OH, AND I'M AVAILABLE FRIDAY
FOR DINNER.

(laughs) I'M MARRIED.

AND I'M DISCREET.
YOU LIKE SEAFOOD?

DO YOU LIKE PEPPER SPRAY?

I'VE BECOME ACCUSTOMED
TO THE TASTE.

JIM, I'LL, UH, I'LL GET THESE
TOWELS BACK TO YOU TOMORROW.

TOMORROW?
YEAH.

YEAH, I GUESS THAT'S FINE.

I'LL JUST DRY THE KIDS OFF
WITH THEIR SOCKS.

(laughs) NO, NO. NEVER MIND.
I'LL GET 'EM BACK TONIGHT.

OH, YOU'RE A PEACH.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT
I'D DO WITHOUT YA. AW.

IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND,
WE CAN HIT IT AND QUIT IT.

WHAT... WHAT KIND OF SCAM
YOU PULLING HERE?

I TAPPED
INTO SOMETHING, ANDY.

I HAVE TAPPED
INTO THE BOUNDLESS POOL

OF FEMALE PITY
FOR THE HELPLESS MAN.

THE MORE PATHETIC I AM,
THE MORE THEY WANNA HELP ME.

I'VE GOT THREE LOCAL HOUSEWIVES
TAKING CARE OF ME NOW.

I'M PATHETIC. HUH?

WHERE'S MY CHEESE PLATE?

HECK, I SHOULD HAVE
A CHEESE HOUSE.

HOW... HOW DID YOU
PULL THIS OFF?

WELL, I LOST KYLE.
NOW MARY BETH IS CARPOOL.

I SENT KYLE TO SCHOOL
IN A DRESS.

NOW SUSAN
DOES THE LAUNDRY.

(doorbell rings)

AND THAT'S LISA
WITH DINNER AND DESSERT.

AND IF I PLAY MY CARDS RIGHT,

A LITTLE LIGHT VACUUMING.

(sighs)

HI, LISA.

JIM, HOW ARE YOU DOING?

OH, I'M JUST SO OUT OF BREATH,
YOU KNOW, RUNNING AROUND.

I'M TRYING TO DO
EVERYTHING.

OH, WELL, I BROUGHT
YOU A LASAGNA... OH.

AND SOME ROAST BEEF SANDWICHES
FOR THE KIDS TOMORROW. OH, THAT'S GREAT.

AND... OH,
THIS CARPET'S A MESS.

OH, DON'T EVEN LOOK.
I AM SO EMBARRASSED.

I HAVEN'T HAD TIME.

OH, LOOKIT... THE VACUUM CLEANER'S
BROKEN NOW.

I...

YOU KNOW, IT'S OKAY.
I-I CAN GET IT.

LET ME GET
THIS DINNER PUT AWAY.

I'LL DO THE DISHES
AND THEN RUN THE VACUUM.

OH! THANK YOU SO MUCH.
YOU'RE A PEACH.

OH, I BET YOU SAY THAT
TO ALL THE GIRLS.

ACTUALLY, HE DOES...

(laughs)

THANK YOU.

I JUST COULDN'T
DO IT WITHOUT YOU, LISA.

(falsetto voice)
I COULDN'T DO IT.

I COULDN'T DO IT
WITHOUT YOU.

(laughing)

WHAT THE HELL, MAN?
I'M PISSED!

I SPEND MY LIFE ALONE.
YOU GOT THREE WIVES!

FOUR, INCLUDING CHERYL.

WELL... WELL, I'M BLOWING
THIS THING SKY-HIGH, MAN.

I'M TELLING CHERYL,
I'M TELLING THE NEW WIVES.

I'M TELLING EVERYONE. LET
THE BODIES FALL WHERE THEY MAY.

SPONGE BATH.

OHH.

(Mary Beth)
JIM, ARE YOU HOME?

HI, MARY BETH.

HI. HI.

OH, JUST SITTING HERE,

TRYING TO MAKE A COSTUME
FOR GRACIE'S PAGEANT AT SCHOOL.

AW.

I THINK I CAN DO SOMETHING HERE
WITH THIS TINFOIL AND THIS BAG.

YEAH. THAT SOUNDS GOOD.
WHO IS SHE GONNA BE?

UH, ELEANOR ROOSEVELT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

YEAH, UH...

YOU KNOW WHAT, JIM?
I BET I COULD WHIP SOMETHING UP.

OH, GREAT.

OH, I-I BROUGHT YOU
A LITTLE DESSERT FOR TONIGHT.

MMM! OH. UH, WELL, WHERE
DID YOU GET THIS OTHER PIE?

OH. SUSAN.

OH.

SUSAN FROM UP THE STREET
MADE YOU A PIE?

NO.

HEY.

DANA MADE IT
BECAUSE I ASKED HER TO.

WHAT'D I DO?

UH, YOU MADE THAT THANK-YOU PIE
FOR, UH, MARY BETH.

REMEMBER, I STILL OWE YOU $25
FOR THE INGREDIENTS?

OH, YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU DO OWE ME $50.

AND I'LL GET YOU
THAT $35 IN A MINUTE.

SOLD. I MADE THE PIE.
HOPE YOU LIKE IT. OH.

(doorbell rings)
I'LL GET THAT.

OH, THAT WAS REALLY
SWEET OF JIM. YEAH, YEAH.

SO WHAT KIND IS IT?

UM...

CHERRY.

OH, HEY, SWEETIE,
YOU'RE A PEACH. HI. OH!

THANK YOU.

NO, WAIT, WAIT. I LEFT
MY GLOVES IN THE KITCHEN.

UGH. UH, YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'LL GET 'EM FOR YOU.

OH, JIM, YOU'VE GOT
ENOUGH TO DO.

NO, NO, NO, NO,
SUSAN, SUSAN, UH...

ANDY IS IN THERE NAKED.

I, UM...

I THINK I LEFT THEM
BY THE SINK.

BY THE SINK.
YEAH.

I'LL GET 'EM, I'LL GET 'EM.
THANKS SO MUCH.

WHO WAS AT THE DOOR, JIM?

UH, GIRL SCOUTS.
UH, THERE'S A BIG GLOVE DRIVE.

APPARENTLY, KIDS IN RUSSIA
DON'T HAVE GLOVES.

OH, THERE'S SOME RIGHT THERE.
EXCUSE ME.

UH, WAIT A MINUTE. JIM, JIM.
YOU CAN'T GIVE AWAY MY GLOVES.

THESE AREN'T
YOUR GLOVES, DANA.

UH, BUT, JIM, CHERYL'S NOT HERE,
THEY'RE TOO BIG FOR THE GIRLS

AND, UH, THEY'RE
NOT MARY BETH'S. NO.

SO WHOSE COULD THEY BE?

YOU'RE RIGHT. THEY
ARE YOURS. YEAH.

THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU LEFT THEM HERE $25 AGO.

UH, "$25 AGO"?

DID I SAY...
I MEANT 25 MINUTES AGO.

YES, THAT'S RIGHT,
EXCEPT IT WAS 40.

FINE, BUT WHILE
WE'RE SITTING HERE TALKING,

SOME LITTLE RUSSIAN GIRL

IS FREEZING
HER HANDS OFF.

JIM, HE'S NOT
COMING OUT HERE, IS HE?

(laughs) NO, NO, NO, NO,
BUT I TOLD HIM YOU WERE HERE,

AND HE DID SAY, "SAY HI."

UGH, UGH, UGH, UGH,
UGH, UGH, UGH, UGH!

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE A PEACH!

(telephone rings)

(Dana) I'LL GET IT!

IT'S LISA!

OH, LISA!

YES, LISA,
JIM'S RIGHT HERE.

JIM, IT'S LISA.

IS THAT LISA FROM SCHOOL?

NO, IT'S, UH,
MY BUDDY, STEVE LISA.

YEAH, HE'S A COOL DUDE,
MAN, REALLY COOL.

HEY, LISA.

WHAT'S UP, DUDE?

YEAH. NO, I THINK THE DUVET
IS PERMANENT PRESS...

DAWG.

YEAH, YEAH,
WE'LL TALK LATER.

YOU'RE A PEACH.

THAT'S WHAT GOOD FRIENDS
DO SOMETIMES.

THEY CALL EACH OTHER
BY THEIR FAVORITE FRUIT.

I'M "KIWI."

WELL, UM,
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE

YOU WANT ME TO DO
BEFORE I GO?

NO, NO, NO,
I GOT IT ALL HANDLED

ALL BECAUSE OF YOU.

(laughs)

AND ONLY YOU, MARY BETH.

OH.

(laughing)

THANKS.

ENJOY THAT PIE.

(exhales deeply)

WELL, I DROPPED BY TO SEE
IF YOU NEEDED ANY HELP,

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE IT
ALL UNDER CONTROL, KIWI.

YOU KNOW, I HAVEN'T
JUGGLED THREE WOMEN

SINCE I WAS IN MY 20s.

JIM, YOU KNOW THAT
A HOOKER WITH TWO WIGS

ISN'T THREE WOMEN,
RIGHT?

(sighs) TO BE HONEST WITH YOU,
DANA, I'M RUNNING OUT OF GAS.

I MEAN, I THINK IT PROBABLY
WOULD HAVE BEEN EASIER

IF I JUST DID ALL THE COOKING
AND CLEANING MYSELF.

AND IT'S IMMORAL
TO TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF THESE THREE WOMEN.

YEAH, YOU'RE RIGHT.
I KNOW.

I COULD PROBABLY GET BY
WITH JUST ONE.

I'LL DUMP THE OTHER TWO.

SO WHO'S THE LUCKY LADY?

WELL, I GOTTA SAY
MARY BETH.

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY...

"DATE VACUUMING,
BUT MARRY CARPOOL."

OH. OH.

(sighs) LISA, I KNOW
THIS IS TOUGH TO HEAR,

BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE
BETTER FOR THE BOTH OF US

IF I VACUUMED MY OWN FLOOR.

DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG?

DID I NOT VACUUM RIGHT?

I MEAN, I COULD
VACUUM RIGHT NOW

WITH THE ATTACHMENTS
YOU LIKE.

NO, NO, NO, NO, LISA,

IT'S NOT YOU. IT'S ME.

HERE. HERE, LISA.

PLEASE ACCEPT THESE
AS A TOKEN OF MY APPRECIATION.

GIFT CERTIFICATES
FROM STEVIE B's RIB CAFE?

MM-HMM. YEAH,
THEY'RE RIB BUCKS.

THEY'RE LIKE REAL MONEY.

SEE? "LEGAL TENDER...
AND JUICY."

PLEASE JUST TAKE THEM.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

(sighs)

IS SOMEONE ELSE
TAKING CARE OF YOU?

THAT IS HURTFUL.

(sighs)

I MEAN, I'D HAVE TO BE
SOME BIG CREEP

TO LET MORE
THAN ONE LOCAL HOUSEWIFE

MAKE ME LASAGNA.

PLEASE, JUST TAKE 'EM.

(voice breaking) OH, JIM,
I'M SORRY. PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

(sighs) DON'T CRY.

(crying)

PLEASE DON'T CRY.

THINK OF THIS...

WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE
THAT TIME YOU WASHED MY CAR.

OH! (continues crying)

MARY BETH...

WELL, YOU'VE MADE ME
AND MY FAMILY

FEEL VERY TAKEN CARE OF.

AND I-I-I JUST...

NEVER THOUGHT
A NEIGHBORHOOD LADY

COULD MAKE ME FEEL
THIS WAY.

OH, JIM, I...

SHH. SHH. SHH.
SHH. SHH. SHH.

I-I NEED
TO GET THIS OUT.

YOU'VE ALWAYS ASKED

IF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE
YOU COULD DO FOR ME.

I DON'T KNOW.
I-I-I'VE BEEN AFRAID TO COMMIT.

BUT NOW I...

OH, JIM,
ARE YOU SAYING THAT...

YES.

WILL YOU...

PICK UP MY KIDS EVERY DAY

AND DO ALL THE COOKING
AND CLEANING? (sighs)

OH... JIM.

YES, I WOULD LOVE TO.

I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU.

OH, THAT IS SO GREAT.

I AM SO HAPPY.
HEY, LET'S GO CELEBRATE.

OH, GREAT,
THAT'LL BE FUN!

OKAY, I'LL TELL YOU
WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO.

YOU GO OUT AND GRAB SOME
CHINESE TAKEOUT... OKAY.

AND LATER, YOU CAN
CHANGE THE KIDS' BEDS.

AWESOME!

OH, OH, WAIT A MINUTE.
HERE, HERE, HERE.

TAKE MY CAR.
IT NEEDS AN OIL CHANGE.

WHERE ARE THE KIDS? OH, UH,
ANDY'S TUCKING THEM INTO BED.

OH. WELL, THE DISHES
ARE ALL DONE.

OH, DID YOU LEAVE
ANY FOR ME TO DRY?

OH, YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST EASIER
IF I DO IT ALL MYSELF.

YEAH, IT IS, ISN'T IT?
YEAH.

SO, UH, I GUESS
I'LL SEE YOU IN THE MORNING.

UH, DO YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU
WHAT I WANT FOR BREAKFAST NOW

OR SHOULD I JUST HANG IT
OUTSIDE THE DOOR?

JIM,
YOU ARE SUCH A RIOT.

OH, GOSH,
WHAT A DAY, HUH?

OH,
I JUST NEED TO UNWIND.

DO WHAT NOW?

MY GOSH, I TOTALLY
DIDN'T TELL YOU.

GUESS WHO
I RAN INTO TODAY?

THAT MARGE HART
AND HER STONE-FACED HUSBAND.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'M...

I'M TELLING YOU SOMETHING
THAT HAPPENED IN MY DAY.

WHY?

BECAUSE I THOUGHT
YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED.

OH. (laughs) HONEY, I SEE
THE PROBLEM HERE.

I'M NOT.

WHAT, SO WE... WE CAN'T HAVE
A CONVERSATION ABOUT MY DAY?

YOU KNOW WHAT? THAT'S SOMETHING
I-I-I RESERVE FOR MY WIFE,

AND THEN, ONLY BECAUSE
IT'S PART OF THE DEAL.

I MEAN, I SIT HERE WITH HER,
AND SHE YAMMERS AND YAMMERS ON.

I HAVE TO PINCH MYSELF
TO STAY AWAKE.

BUT, MARY BETH,
IF I DID THAT WITH YOU,

I FEEL LIKE I'D BE
CHEATING ON CHERYL.

RIGHT.

SO LET ME
GET THIS STRAIGHT...

YOU... YOU JUST WANT ME
TO COME OVER HERE

AND DO YOUR DISHES
AND THEN JUST GO

LIKE I'M SOME KIND
OF MAID?

(laughs) OH, HONEY.
YOU'RE NOT A MAID. RIGHT.

YOU PAY A MAID.

(laughs) COME ON.

(doorbell rings)

(ring)

(ring)

I GUESS I'LL GET IT.

OH. (sighs)

HELLO, JIM.

OH!

(grunts) COME ON.
COME ON. COME ON.

WE JUST RAN INTO EACH OTHER
AT STEVIE B's.

WE KNOW ALL ABOUT
THE LITTLE SCAM YOU'RE RUNNING.

(groans)

I WAS DOING ALL
YOUR LAUNDRY.

AND I WAS DOING
ALL YOUR COOKING.

AND THESE RIB BUCKS
EXPIRED A MONTH AGO!

ALL RIGHT.

WHAT THE HELL?

YOU HAD ALL THREE OF US
HELPING YOU?

YOU USED US.

HOW COULD I BE
SO BLIND?

I AM THIS CLOSE

TO BREAKING THE BANK
ON MY SWEAR JAR.

OH, HONEY, NO.

ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT.
THAT'S ENOUGH. ALL RIGHT?

YOU KNOW WHAT? CHERYL'S
GONNA BE HERE IN A FEW DAYS.

I'LL SURVIVE WITHOUT YOU.

WHY DON'T YOU GIRLS
JUST KINDA MOVE ALONG?

COME ON. COME ON. GO. GO.
YOU ARE TERRIBLE.

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.
TELL ALL THE MOMS AT THE P.T.A.

THE SAME THING. COME ON.
OH, DON'T WORRY. WE WILL.

COME ON. YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.
JUST GET OUT. STAY OUT.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT? MY KIDS DON'T
NEED BREAKFAST IN THE MORNING.

ACTUALLY, I THINK I COULD
WHIP UP SOME... NO, HONEY. NO.

BYE-BYE, PEACHES.

(telephone rings)

WOMEN.

(ring)

I'LL GET IT!

HELLO.

HEY, HONEY.
HOW ARE YOU?

OH, DOING... DOING GREAT.
YOU KNOW, UH,

NOTHING I CAN'T HANDLE
FOR A COUPLE MORE DAYS.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?
HOW'S YOUR MOM?

(sighs) YOU KNOW,
I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS,

BUT REHAB IS NOT GOING
AS FAST AS I THOUGHT.

(groans)

(exhales deeply)

WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?

WELL, UM, I THINK
SHE'S GONNA NEED ME

FOR ANOTHER COUPLE WEEKS
AT LEAST.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

WHATEVER IT TAKES, HONEY.
SHE'S FAMILY.

OH, HONEY.

WELL, THANK YOU
FOR BEING SO UNDERSTANDING.

(growls)

HEY, YOU KNOW WHAT?

Hmm?

MAYBE I COULD CALL
SOME OF THE P.T.A. MOMS

AND THEY COULD HELP YOU
WITH, YOU KNOW,

COOKING,
CLEANING, DRIVING...

UH... (exhales deeply)
NOT NECESSARY, BABY.

I'M HAPPY TO DO IT
ALL BY MYSELF.

WHAT DID YOU DO?

YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU... YOU GOT TOO MUCH

ON YOUR PLATE
TO TALK ABOUT IT NOW.

COME ON.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR DAY.

HOW'S YOUR MOM?

DID YOU HAVE TO GIVE
HER A SPONGE BATH?

(thud)

OH... I'M... I'M OKAY.

I'M OKAY.

THAT'S TERRIBLE.
A SUPPOSITORY?

DAMN YOU.

OOH.

(thud)

YOU ARE A GOOD DAUGHTER.
