OH, BOY. WHAT A DAY.

WHAT HAPPENED, MA?

BUTCH AND SUNDANCE
STEAL YOUR SEAT ON THE BUS?

I HAD A MISERABLE DAY. THAT
MANAGER DOCKED ME A HALF DAY'S PAY

BECAUSE I SAID HELLO
TO THE CUSTOMERS.

YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY HELLO?



NOT AT PECOS PETE'S CHOW
WAGON. YOU HAVE TO SAY HOWDY.

AS A MATTER OF FACT,
YOU SAY, "HOWDY, PARTNER?

HOW ABOUT A SADDLEBAG OF FRIES
WITH THAT RANCH HOUSE BURGER?"

I DON'T KNOW WHY IT DOESN'T
TRIP NATURALLY OFF MY TONGUE.

SOPHIA, THEY TOOK HALF
YOUR DAY'S PAY JUST FOR THAT?

THIS MANAGER IS A SHARK.
HE'S BUCKIN' FOR SUPERVISOR.

HE TOLD MILDRED AND EDNA

THEY COULD ONLY TAKE
TEN-MINUTE BATHROOM BREAKS.

WELL, MA, THAT'S
NOT UNREASONABLE.

PLEASE! THEY'RE 85.

IT TAKES MILDRED TEN MINUTES
TO ROLL DOWN HER STOCKINGS.

YOU'LL NEVER GUESS
WHAT I GOT IN THE MAIL.

IF IT'S ONE OF THOSE ADULT
TOYS IN THE BACK OF A MAGAZINE,

I'M NOT INTERESTED.

- I AM. LET ME SEE IT.
- MA!

YOU WAIT YOUR TURN.

IT'S A POSTCARD FROM
MY DAUGHTER, REBECCA.

GIRLS, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

AFTER ALMOST FOUR YEARS,
MY BABY'S COMIN' TO SEE ME.

I'M SO HAPPY I COULD CRY.

BLANCHE, YOU ARE CRYING.

ADMIT IT, ROSE. YOU WORKED
FOR ALLIED INTELLIGENCE

DURING WORLD WAR II.

HUH?

FINE. PLAY IT CAGEY.

WHEN IS SHE, UH,
COMING, BLANCHE?

SHE SAYS IN TWO WEEKS. LOOK.
SHE SIGNS IT "LOVE, REBECCA."

I GUESS THAT MEANS
SHE'S FORGIVEN ME.

FOR WHAT?

IT'S DIFFICULT TO TALK ABOUT.

SHE WANTED TO LEAVE SCHOOL
TO BECOME A FASHION MODEL.

YOU'RE DAUGHTER'S
A FASHION MODEL?

SHE'S JUST BEAUTIFUL.
ALWAYS HAS BEEN.

GORGEOUS BLONDE
HAIR, SPARKLIN' BLUE EYES,

A FIGURE MEN WOULD
MORTGAGE A HOUSE FOR.

WE WERE ALWAYS SO MUCH ALIKE.

AND SO CLOSE, JUST
LIKE SIAMESE TWINS.

IT'S A SHAME WHEN THEY
SEPARATED YOU, YOU GOT BOTH BUTTS.

[CHUCKLING] YES.

ANYWAY, WE HAD A TERRIBLE
FIGHT ABOUT HER QUITTIN' SCHOOL.

SHE TOLD ME TO
STAY OUT OF HER LIFE.

SHE SWORE SHE WOULD
NEVER SPEAK TO ME AND HASN'T.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE
IT'S IN THE PAST.

I HOPE SO. I HAVE MISSED HER.
SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE.

IT SURE MAKES ME APPRECIATE

THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP
I HAVE WITH MY DAUGHTER.

- PUSSYCAT?
- YES, MA?

DIAL YOUR SISTER. I NEVER
REMEMBER THE AREA CODE.

UH-HUH.

YEAH. RIGHT. 6:00 AT MILDRED'S.

WE'RE PUTTING TOGETHER
A LIST OF DEMANDS

TO PRESENT TO THAT SCUZZBALL,
McCRACKEN, AT WORK TOMORROW.

GOOD. OH, AND, EDNA,
BRING SOME SHERRY.

NOBODY BOUGHT
THAT GLAUCOMA STORY

WHEN YOU WHIPPED OUT
THAT REEFER LAST TIME.

NO. NO, YOU CAN'T
PUT IT IN BROWNIES.

I SAID NO REEFERS.
OKAY? GOOD-BYE.

SOPHIA, THE PROBLEMS
YOU'RE HAVING AT WORK

REMIND ME OF SOMETHING
THAT HAPPENED IN ST. OLAF.

DUST REMINDS YOU OF
SOMETHING IN ST. OLAF.

I GOT WORK TO DO.

- MA, I MOVED SOME OF
YOUR THINGS INTO MY ROOM.
- WHY?

BLANCHE'S DAUGHTER ARRIVES
TODAY. YOU HAVE TO SLEEP WITH ME.

LET ME RESPOND TO THAT
THE WAY YOUR DATES DO.

"NO, THANKS. I'LL
CALL YOU SOMETIME."

OKAY, GIRLS, HOW DO I LOOK?

OH, BLANCHE, YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

BUT DO I LOOK LIKE A MOTHER?

FROM THE SIDE, YOU LOOK LIKE
YOU'RE ABOUT TO DROP TWINS.

BLANCHE, RELAX,
HONEY. YOU LOOK LOVELY.

I'M SO NERVOUS ABOUT SEEING
BECKY AFTER SUCH A LONG TIME.

- I WANT EVERYTHING
TO BE PERFECT.
- IT WILL BE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HER.

JOHNNY CARSON HAD THAT
PROBLEM THE OTHER NIGHT

WITH F. MURRAY ABRAHAM.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

GOOD LORD, THAT'S HER.

MY BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL.

[GASPS] OH, GOSH. I CAN'T
DO THIS. I'M NOT READY.

BLANCHE, COME BACK.

- I NEED MORE TIME.
- IT'S BEEN FOUR YEARS.

I NEED FIVE MORE MINUTES. I NEED
FOUR YEARS AND FIVE MINUTES.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

ALL RIGHT, ALL
RIGHT. I'M COMING.

HI.

YOU'RE BLANCHE'S
DAUGHTER, THE MODEL?

WHAT DID SHE MODEL, CAR COVERS?

YOU'LL HAVE TO
FORGIVE MY MOTHER.

IT'S JUST THAT WE DIDN'T
EXPECT YOU TO BE THIS FAT.

BECKY, IT'S-IT'S A
PLEASURE MEETING YOU.

- I'M DOROTHY. THIS IS ROSE.
- [BOTH] HI.

- THIS IS MY MOTHER, SOPHIA.
- NICE TO MEET Y'ALL.

BECKY, WHAT BRINGS YOU TO MIAMI?

MY GUESS IS, A SMALL BARGE.

MA, WHY DON'T YOU SEE
WHAT'S KEEPING BLANCHE?

MAMA.

REBECCA. OH!

HONEY. HONEY.

LET ME GET A LOOK AT YOU.

THIS COULD TAKE SEVERAL HOURS.

OH, DARLIN', I HAVE
MISSED YOU SO MUCH.

OH, I MISSED YOU, TOO, MAMA.

MAYBE WE SHOULD
LEAVE THEM ALONE.

NO. DON'T YOU LEAVE, GIRLS.

I WANT MY FRIENDS HERE
TO SHARE MY HAPPINESS.

MY... ENORMOUS HAPPINESS.

TELL ME ALL ABOUT PARIS. WHERE'D
YOU LIVE? WHERE'D YOU WORK?

WHERE'D YOU FIND
JEANS THAT SIZE?

- SOPHIA.
- NO, MAMA, THAT'S OKAY.

I MAY HAVE LOST MY FIGURE, BUT
I STILL HAVE MY SENSE OF HUMOR.

DOES IT BOTHER YOU
THAT I GAINED WEIGHT?

OH, I'M JUST SO GLAD
TO HAVE YOU BACK AGAIN.

I'LL SHOW YOU WHERE YOU'LL
BE STAYIN' SO WE CAN UNPACK.

NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY SHE'S
SLEEPING IN BLANCHE'S BED.

IT CAN SUPPORT THE WEIGHT
OF AN AVERAGE FEMALE

AND TWO VENEZUELAN
SOCCER PLAYERS.

HERE WE ARE.

OH, I LOVE YOUR HOME, MAMA.

THANK YOU.

WELL, HONEY, TELL ME. HOW'S
YOUR MODELING CAREER BEEN GOIN'?

WELL, TO BE HONEST,
MAMA, NOT TOO WELL LATELY.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOIN'?

YOU MEAN BESIDES EATIN'?

I DIDN'T SAY THAT.

THAT'S WHAT YOU MEANT.

WELL, YOU HAVE
FILLED OUT A LITTLE BIT.

BUT I DON'T WANT YOU
TO BE UPSET, BECKY.

WE CAN FIX IT. I'M
GONNA PUT YOU ON A DIET.

I DON'T WANT HELP.
I'M HAPPY THE WAY I AM.

HAPPY? LOOK AT YOURSELF.
HOW COULD YOU BE HAPPY?

YOU'RE NOT HAPPY, MAMA.
YOU'RE DOIN' IT AGAIN.

YOU'RE TELLIN' ME HOW TO LIVE.

- WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
- NOTHING'S EVER ENOUGH FOR YOU.

I HAD TO BE THE PRETTIEST.

I HAD TO BE THE MOST POPULAR.

I HAD TO BE THE BRIGHTEST.

THAT DIDN'T MEAN YOU HAD TO
RUN OUT AND BECOME THE FATTEST.

MAMA, YOU HAVE TO
ACCEPT ME FOR WHAT I AM.

YOU HAVE TO STOP
TRYIN' TO RUN MY LIFE,

OTHERWISE I'M GONNA
HAVE TO LEAVE AGAIN.

NOW, HONEY... OH, YOU KNOW,
YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

I'M SORRY.

OH, HEY, I LOVE YOU
JUST THE WAY YOU ARE.

EVERY LAST POUND OF YOU.

JUST EXACTLY HOW MANY
POUNDS IS IT I'M CURRENTLY LOVIN'?

- MAMA!
- NEVER MIND.

HI, SOPHIA. HOW
WAS YOUR MEETING?

TERRIBLE. THAT WEASEL OF
A MANAGER WOULDN'T BUDGE.

HE PUSHED US TO THE
WALL. NOW IT'S ALL-OUT WAR.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

TOMORROW MORNING, ALL CHOW
WAGON EMPLOYEES OVER THE AGE OF 70

ARE OFFICIALLY OUT ON STRIKE.

YOU'RE GONNA PICKET
THE RESTAURANT?

NO. WE'RE GONNA PUT ON WAR PAINT

AND SHOOT FLAMING ARROWS AT
THE COVERED WAGON OUT FRONT.

GEE, THAT MIGHT EVEN
GET YOU ON THE 6:00 NEWS.

THE TABLE ON THE LANAI'S SET.
REBECCA SHOULD BE HERE WITH JEREMY.

DID REBECCA BRING JEREMY
TO MIAMI TO MEET YOU?

SHE DIDN'T SAY.

YOU THINK HE MIGHT
BE HER BOYFRIEND?

I DIDN'T SEE ANY PICTURES OF HIM
WHEN I WENT THROUGH HER THINGS.

WENT THROUGH HER THINGS?
WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST ASK?

OH, HEY! I DON'T STICK MY NOSE
IN WHERE IT DOESN'T BELONG.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

THAT MUST BE THEM.

HI, MAMA. THIS IS JEREMY.

- NICE TO MEET YOU.
- A PLEASURE.

- COME IN. SIT DOWN.
- THANK YOU.

YOU HAVE A LOVELY HOME.

THANK YOU. YOU SEEM VERY NICE.

HE IS VERY NICE.

- BECKY, WAS SHE TALKING TO YOU?
- I'M SORRY.

HORS D'OEUVRES ARE
NOW BEING SERVED.

MEET MY MOTHER'S FRIENDS,
DOROTHY, SOPHIA, AND ROSE.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

JEREMY, WHERE DID
YOU AND REBECCA MEET?

WE MET AT A CAFÉ IN PARIS.

THERE WEREN'T ANY TABLES
LEFT, SO I JUST SAT... AT BECKY.

WHY DON'T WE MOVE OUT
TO THE LANAI FOR DINNER.

- I'LL SHOW YOU THE WAY.
- LET ME HELP YOU.

- BECKY?
- OH. YEAH.

MMM. THAT FETTUCCINI
WAS SENSATIONAL.

YOU LADIES MADE A GREAT MEAL.

AS LONG AS YOU'RE
HANDIN' OUT COMPLIMENTS,

YOU HAVEN'T SAID
ANYTHING ABOUT MY OUTFIT.

THAT'S NOT VERY NICE.

I'M TRYING TO BE NICE. THAT'S
WHY I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING.

YOU ALL GET COMFORTABLE AND
I'LL MAKE A POT OF HOT COFFEE.

WHICH I'D LIKE TO
POUR DOWN HIS PANTS.

HOW CAN YOU LET HIM
TALK TO BECKY THAT WAY?

DOROTHY'S RIGHT. I HAVEN'T HEARD
ANYONE INSULT SOMEONE LIKE THAT

SINCE LARS SVENSSON ACCUSED
ERIK THE RED OF BEING A COWARD

AND CALLED HIM YELLOW.

WOULDN'T THAT MAKE
HIM ERIK THE ORANGE?

I'M NOT ABOUT TO MEDDLE
IN BECKY'S PERSONAL LIFE.

I MADE THAT MISTAKE AND
IT COST ME FOUR YEARS.

BLANCHE, THIS IS DIFFERENT.
HE IS DOWNRIGHT CRUEL TO HER.

IF REBECCA DOESN'T MIND
IT, IT IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS.

SHE'S ONLY KNOWN
HIM A SHORT TIME.

I'M SURE SHE'LL COME TO HER
SENSES BEFORE VERY LONG.

MA, YOU DON'T HAVE TO
HELP WITH THE DISHES.

I COULDN'T LISTEN ANYMORE.

YOU MEAN JEREMY'S RUDE REMARKS.

I MEAN REBECCA TALKING
ABOUT MARRYING THAT JERK.

ARE YOU TELLIN' ME

REBECCA AND JEREMY ARE
PLANNIN' TO GET MARRIED?

YEAH. I OVERHEARD THEM TALKING.

MAYBE YOU MISUNDERSTOOD.

PLEASE. ME MISUNDERSTAND?

MY BLADDER MAY BE WEAK,
MY EYESIGHT MAY BE FAILING,

MY BONES MAY BE BRITTLE...

I SEE YOUR POINT. MAYBE
YOU BETTER DOUBLE-CHECK.

REBECCA, JEREMY,

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU
WOULD LIKE TO TELL ME?

AS A MATTER OF FACT, YES.

PLEASE, BECKY, LET ME DO IT.

BLANCHE, I'D LIKE TO ASK FOR
YOUR DAUGHTER'S HAND IN MARRIAGE.

I'D TAKE THE REST OF HER,
BUT I'VE GOT A BAD BACK.

JEREMY, BE SERIOUS.

MAMA, JEREMY'S ASKED ME
TO MARRY HIM AND I'VE SAID YES.

YOU ARE HAPPY FOR ME, MAMA?

HAPPY?

HAPPY. HONEY!

HAPPY ISN'T THE WORD FOR IT.

OH!

WELL, WE'RE OFF TO THE GAME.

BLANCHE, I DIDN'T KNOW
YOU PLAYED BASEBALL.

WE'RE NOT GONNA PLAY.
WE'RE GONNA SEE A GAME.

MAMA OFFERED TO DRIVE
US TO SEE THE DODGERS.

JEREMY'S A BIG BASEBALL FAN.

BECKY'S A BIGGER ONE.
BECKY'S A BIGGER EVERYTHING.

NOT EVERYTHING, JEREMY.

WELL, WE BETTER GO. WE
DON'T WANNA MISS ANYTHING.

I WANNA BUY BECKY A DODGER CAP,

SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE MISTAKE
HER FOR TOMMY LASORDA.

THAT'S IT. THAT IS IT!

NOW, CALM DOWN. WE'LL
BRING YOU BACK A CAP, TOO.

I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. I'VE
GOTTA SAY SOMETHING TO THAT GUY.

I KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS,
BUT THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO.

IT'S HER DAUGHTER.
IT'S HER CHOICE.

IT'S LIKE SOMETHING
BACK IN ST. OLAF.

ROSE, STOP. WHEN ANY ONE
OF US MAKES AN OBSERVATION,

THE FIRST THING WE
HEAR IS "BACK IN ST. OLAF."

DID IT OCCUR TO YOU
WE MIGHT BE TIRED

OF "BACK IN ST. OLAF,"
"BACK IN ST. OLAF"?

GEE, NO. I NEVER REALIZED.

I'M SORRY.

OH, THAT'S OKAY.

BACK IN THAT TOWN
WHOSE NAME... ROSE!

WE NEED THE KITCHEN.

- WHAT'S GOIN' ON?
- A SHOWDOWN WITH McCRACKEN.

YOUR BOSS IS COMING?

A WEEK ON STRIKE
HAS HAD ITS EFFECT.

HE WANTS TO NEGOTIATE. I
INSISTED WE DO IT ON OUR TURF.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

THAT'S HIM. LET HIM IN. I
GOTTA PREPARE THE TABLE.

EXCUSE ME.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT, SOPHIA?

IT'S A POWER MOVE.
THREE OF US AGAINST ONE.

AND I GET TO LOOK DOWN ON HIM.

MA, MR. McCRACKEN'S HERE.

WELL, LADIES, LET'S
GET DOWN TO BUSINESS.

I'VE GOT TO GET BACK
FOR THE LUNCH RUSH.

WE'LL JUST LEAVE YOU
TO YOUR NEGOTIATIONS.

CAN WE GET YOU SOME MILK
OR SOME DOUBLE STUF OREOS?

NO, THANK YOU, MA'AM.

BOY, HE'S TOUGH.

HAVE A SEAT, BOSS.

- LOOK, I'VE READ AND REREAD
YOUR LIST OF DEMANDS.
- WAIT, McCRACKEN.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN, I
WANNA TELL YOU SOMETHING.

I'M NO NOVICE WHEN IT
COMES TO NEGOTIATIONS.

- OH, REALLY?
- LET ME TELL YOU A STORY.

PICTURE IT: SICILY, 1922.

AN ATTRACTIVE PEASANT
GIRL, WHO HAS SAVED HER LIRA,

EMBARKS ON A GLORIOUS VACATION

TO A CRIMEAN RESORT
ON THE BLACK SEA.

FOR WEEKS, SHE FROLICS
AT THE SEASIDE RESORT

AND ENJOYS THE COMPANY OF MANY
YOUNG MEN, ALL OF WHOM ADORE HER.

ALL OF THEM?

SHUT UP, EDNA. I WORK ALONE.

ALL OF THEM.

WHEN IT'S TIME TO
RETURN TO SICILY,

THREE DIFFERENT
SUITORS BEG HER TO STAY.

BUT SHE CAN'T DECIDE
WHO TO CHOOSE,

SO SHE CHOOSES NONE OF THEM.

BUT SHE AGREES TO MEET
WITH THEM AT THE SAME RESORT

MANY YEARS LATER.

TO HER TRIO OF SUITORS,

THAT EVENTFUL GATHERING
WAS REFERRED TO AS

"RENDEZVOUS WITH SOPHIA."

BUT TO THE REST OF THE
WORLD, IT WAS BETTER KNOWN

AS THE YALTA CONFERENCE.

YOU EXPECT ME TO BUY THAT?

THE ONLY REASON I CAME HERE

WAS SO YOU WOULDN'T CAUSE A SCENE
AT THE CHOW WAGON WHEN I FIRED YOU.

FIRED US?

YOU HEARD ME. NO STORY
IS GONNA CHANGE MY MIND.

NOT EVEN THE ONE WE
COULD TELL YOUR FATHER

ABOUT HOW HIS CAR GOT DENTED
WHILE YOU WERE DOING WHEELIES

AND NOT WHILE IT WAS
SITTING IN THE PARKING LOT?

YOU WOULDN'T DO THAT. WOULD YOU?

HEY. SHE'S YOUR GRANDMOTHER.
HAS SHE EVER LIED TO YOU?

IS JEREMY COMING IN A TAXI
OR DRIVIN' TO THE AIRPORT?

- HE'S TAKIN' THE CAR.
- UH-HUH. WELL, THAT'S GOOD.

- I GUESS THIS IS IT.
- OH, I HATE THESE MOMENTS.

I NEVER DID LEARN
HOW TO SAY GOOD-BYE.

OH, THERE ARE SO MANY
WAYS TO SAY FAREWELL.

AUF WIEDERSEHEN, ARRIVEDERCI,

ADIÓS, HASTA LUEGO... GET LOST.

SEE? THERE'S ANOTHER
ONE. GOOD, DOROTHY.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

OH.

DIDN'T YOU HEAR ME HONKING?

WE WERE JUST SAYING GOOD-BYE.

WELL, HOP TO IT. KISS-KISS,
HUG-HUG. WE'RE OUTTA HERE.

MAMA, THANKS FOR BEING SO
UNDERSTANDING ABOUT OUR WEDDING.

THAT'S ME. OLD,
UNDERSTANDIN' MAMA.

IT'S SIMPLER IF JEREMY AND I
RUN OFF AND DO IT OURSELVES.

THAT'LL BE THE DAY
WHEN YOU RUN ANYWHERE.

DO YOU THINK YOU CAN
BE A LITTLE PATIENT?

I KNOW THINGS MOVE SLOW
HERE AT SUNNYBROOK FARM,

BUT WE HAVE A PLANE TO CATCH.

- INTO THE KITCHEN.
- WHAT?

YOU HEARD ME. INTO
THE KITCHEN RIGHT NOW!

REBECCA, I'VE HELD MY
TONGUE FOR TWO SOLID WEEKS,

BUT I CANNOT ANY LONGER.

I AM YOUR MOTHER,

AND I CANNOT LET YOU GO OUT
THAT DOOR WITHOUT ASKING YOU WHY,

OF ALL THE MEN ON
GOD'S GREEN EARTH,

HAVE YOU DECIDED TO
MARRY THAT LUMP OF NOTHIN'?

BECAUSE I WANT A HUSBAND, A FAMILY,
AND JEREMY MAY BE MY LAST CHANCE.

THAT'S JUST NONSENSE.

OH, MAMA, LOOK AT
ME. OPEN YOUR EYES.

I'M NOT BEAUTIFUL.
I'M NOT A CATCH.

FOR THAT MAN, YOU CERTAINLY ARE.

HE'S GOT YOU THINKI"
THAT YOU NEED HIM.

THAT'S BACKWARDS. HE'S
THE ONE WHO NEEDS YOU.

YOU'RE THE ONLY WOMAN
ON EARTH WHO'S KIND

AND CARING ENOUGH
TO GIVE HIM A GLANCE.

HE'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU!

DO YOU HEAR WHAT YOU'RE
SAYING? YOU'RE DOING IT AGAIN.

HE'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU.
NEITHER AM I. I NEVER HAVE BEEN.

- I WISH I'D NEVER COME HERE.
- REBECCA. BECKY SUE.

LET'S GO, JEREMY.

- FINALLY.
- REBECCA.

REBE... WAIT!

OH, DAMN!

IT'S NOT LIKE BLANCHE
TO GO TO BED AT 8:00.

AT LEAST NOT BY HERSELF.

BLANCHE IS DEPRESSED, ROSE.

DO YOU THINK SHE'S
DEPRESSED ABOUT REBECCA?

NO, ROSE. SHE'S DEPRESSED

BECAUSE MARBLEHEAD
MANOR IS ONLY ON ONCE A WEEK.

AH.

I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS A LITTLE
GIRL WHEN WE'D GET DEPRESSED.

GRANDMA COULD
ALWAYS CHEER US UP.

SHE'D TAKE OUT
HER DENTURES AND...

SHE'D TAKE A HEALTHY
SWIG FROM THE AQUARIUM,

AND THEN SHE'D PUT A
FLASHLIGHT UNDER HER CHIN

AND WE COULD WATCH THE
GOLDFISH SWIM FROM CHEEK TO CHEEK.

WE COULD'VE WATCHED IT ALL DAY.

BUT VISITING HOURS WERE
ONLY FROM 10:00 TO 4:00.

I COULDN'T SLEEP. I JUST
KEPT TOSSIN' AND TURNIN',

THINKIN' ABOUT
THE MISTAKE I MADE.

BLANCHE, YOU DID
THE RIGHT THING.

YOU'RE ONLY SAYIN' THAT.

SOPHIA, AM I A BAD MOTHER?

YOU DID WHAT YOU HAD TO DO.

WHY DO I FEEL SO TERRIBLE?

BECAUSE IT IS NOT
EASY BEING A MOTHER.

IF IT WERE EASY,
FATHERS WOULD DO IT.

WHY CAN'T KIDS UNDERSTAND THAT
WE'RE TRYIN' TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR 'EM?

THEY'RE KIDS. WHEN THEY BECOME
MOTHERS, THEY KNOW BETTER.

- RIGHT, DOROTHY?
- RIGHT, MA.

GEE, I REMEMBER
YOU USED TO MAKE ME

BRING MY DATES INTO THE
HOUSE TO MEET YOU AND POP.

BOY, WHAT AN INCONVENIENCE.

BETWEEN THE AGES OF
12 AND 19, I MET TWO GUYS.

I REMEMBER MY MOTHER
MAKING ME PRACTICE THE TUBA.

THREE HOURS A DAY, SEVEN
DAYS A WEEK, FOR TEN YEARS.

OH, I HATED IT. BUT
IT FINALLY PAID OFF.

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU PLAYED.

I DON'T. I GAVE IT UP. BUT I
CAN BLOW 32 POUNDS OF AIR

INTO A TIRE IN
LESS THAN A MINUTE.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

WHO COULD THAT BE AT THIS HOUR?

I'LL SEE.

HI, MAMA.

REBECCA, AM I GLAD TO SEE
YOU. I'M SORRY ABOUT WHAT I...

- NO. DON'T APOLOGIZE. YOU WERE RIGHT.
- WHAT?

I WAS THINKIN' ABOUT WHAT YOU
SAID, HOW MUCH COURAGE IT TOOK.

THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED
HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME.

- OH, BABY.
- MAMA, YOU WERE RIGHT
ABOUT JEREMY, TOO.

I CAN DO BETTER.

JUST TOOK SOMEONE WHO
LOVED ME TO POINT IT OUT.

LET'S GO TELL THE
GIRLS THE GOOD NEWS.

THEY'RE IN THE KITCHEN
HAVIN' CHEESECAKE.

OH, BOY. CHEESECAKE
SOUNDS GREAT.

WHY DON'T WE JUST
GO SIT OUT ON THE LANAI.

GOOD-BYE, SUGAR.

- HAVE A GOOD TRIP AND CALL ME.
- I WILL.

- BYE.
- CALL ME.

[SIGHS]

[GROANS]

AH-HUH.

HEY, I THOUGHT WE AGREED

WE WEREN'T GONNA
TALK ABOUT THE CHILDREN.
