HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MA.

OH, YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

YEAH, YEAH. TALK IS CHEAP,

AND SO IS THAT BUFFET,

SO LET'S GET MOVIN' BEFORE
ALL THE SHRIMP IS GONE.

WE CAN'T. CHARLIE JR. HASN'T CALLED
TO WISH ME A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.



MICHAEL HASN'T CALLED ME YET.

JANET HASN'T CALLED ME YET,
ALTHOUGH SHE USUALLY DOESN'T.

ALL MY CHILDREN
CALLED ME... EXCEPT PHIL.

I KNOW HE'S THINKING OF
ME. HE'S JUST SHORT OF CASH.

HELLO.

PERSON-TO-PERSON FROM THE DUKE
OF WINDSOR TO QUEEN ELIZABETH?

OH, THAT'S FOR
ME. THAT'S MY PHIL.

HELLO.

THE QUEEN'S NOT HERE.
SHE WENT SHOPPING.

THANKS FOR CALLING, PHIL,
AND SEND MY LOVE TO THE CH...

DAMN.

EVERY YEAR THEY CATCH
ON QUICKER AND QUICKER.

I LOVE IT WHEN PHIL
CALLS ME ON MOTHER'S DAY.

IT'S THE ONE TIME HE
DOESN'T ASK FOR MONEY.

ONE MOTHER'S DAY, I
HAD TO ASK FOR MONEY.

STAN'S BUSINESS
WASN'T DOING WELL,

AND WE HAD TO ASK
HIS MOTHER FOR A LOAN.

GO AWAY!

MAMA, IT'S ME, STANLEY.

- OH, STANLEY.
- MA.

MY PRIDE AND JOY.

SUNSHINE OF MY LIFE.

HELLO, MOTHER ZBORNAK.

YEAH, RIGHT.

HERE, MAMA. THIS IS FOR
YOU. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

OH, THANK YOU, STANLEY.

AH. THE ARTWORK OF ADOLF HITLER.

THE MINUTE WE SAW IT,
WE KNEW IT WAS FOR YOU.

THANK YOU, STANLEY.

I'M GOING TO PUT IT
ON THE COFFEE TABLE.

IT'S FROM DOROTHY, TOO.

IF I HAD TO THANK HER,
I'D CHOKE ON THE WORDS.

PLEASE RISK IT.

SO, TELL ME, STANLEY.

HOW ARE THINGS AT
THE NOVELTY STORE?

COULDN'T BE BETTER. I WAS
SALESMAN OF THE MONTH.

I'M SURE YOU'LL BE PROUD TO
KNOW THAT THE NAME ZBORNAK

HAS BECOME SYNONYMOUS
WITH PLASTIC VOMIT.

I... I WOULD ABSOLUTELY
LOVE A CUP OF TEA.

OH, SURE, STANLEY. ANYTHING
YOU WANT, SWEETHEART.

START BEING NICE, OTHERWISE
SHE'S NOT GONNA GIVE US THAT MONEY.

YOU ASK. SHE
WOULDN'T REFUSE YOU.

WOULD BREAK MAMA'S HEART
IF SHE KNEW I WAS A FAILURE.

TO HER, I HAVE THE BUSINESS
SENSE OF A ROCKEFELLER,

THE LOOKS OF GARY COOPER,
THE CHARM OF CARY GRANT.

I'M NOT SURPRISED.

THE WOMAN DRINKS GRAIN
ALCOHOL OUT OF A MEASURING CUP.

HERE'S THE TEA.

THIS IS JUST HOT WATER.

ENJOY.

I, UM, JUST REMEMBERED. I HAVE
AN IMPORTANT CALL TO MAKE.

YOU KNOW THE NOVELTY BUSINESS.

THE PAY PHONE'S AT THE
END OF THE TRAILER COURT.

WHAT'RE YOU HERE FOR?
WHAT DO YOU WANT, MONEY?

NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT.
HOW DID YOU KNOW?

I GOT THE FEELING MY YUTZ
SON CRAPPED OUT AT HIS JOB.

YUTZ. I'VE NEVER HEARD YOU
SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT STAN.

I DON'T HAVE TO. THE WHOLE WORLD
MAKES FUN OF HIM. ALWAYS HAS.

THAT'S WHY I MAKE HIM
OUT TO BE MORE THAN HE IS.

- THEN YOU WILL
GIVE HIM THE MONEY.
- NO.

BUT I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU
UNDER ONE CONDITION.

DON'T EVER TELL
STANLEY IT CAME FROM ME.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

STANLEY HAS A
TENDENCY TO BE WEAK.

IF HE KNEW I WAS A SOFT TOUCH,
HE'D NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING.

- HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED?
- $500.

I'LL GIVE YOU A THOUSAND.

YOU KNOW, DOROTHY, I'M
GLAD STANLEY MARRIED YOU.

YOU LOVE HIM, BUT YOU'RE
TOUGH, AND HE NEEDS THAT.

THEN WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN?

IF STANLEY KNEW I LIKED YOU,
HE'D HANG AROUND ALL THE TIME.

HE'S A YUTZ. WHO
NEEDS HIM AROUND HERE?

DOROTHY.

OH, THANK GOD YOU CAME.

I THOUGHT SHE WAS
GONNA STRANGLE ME.

- I TAKE IT YOU WEREN'T ABLE...
- WE'LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT.

I'LL CALL YOU, MAMA.

- HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.
- GOOD-BYE, SWEETHEART.

- HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.
- YEAH, RIGHT.

AS IT TURNED OUT, STAN'S
MOTHER WASN'T SO BAD AFTER ALL.

PLEASE. THE WOMAN WASN'T
HUMAN. I THINK SHE ATE MICE.

HELLO? CHARLIE!

HEY, EVERYONE, IT'S CHARLIE JR.

OH! GUESS WHAT. HE SAYS
IT'S COLD IN MINNESOTA.

GET OUTTA HERE.

IS IT COLD ENOUGH

THAT IF YOU PUT YOUR TONGUE
ON SOMETHING METAL, IT'LL STICK?

SURE. I'LL HOLD.

THIS MIGHT BE THE IDEAL TIME

TO LEAVE FOR THAT
MOTHER'S DAY BRUNCH.

THE LAST MOTHER'S DAY I SPENT
WITH MY MAMA WAS IN VIRGINIA.

MAMA'D BEEN ILL FOR SOME TIME,

AND SHE WAS RECOVERING
IN A CONVALESCENT HOME.

IT WAS A LOVELY PLACE.

STAY RIGHT THERE. I WANT YOU TO
WATCH THE PROPER WAY FOR A LADY

TO MAKE AN ENTRANCE ON THE
ARM OF A HANDSOME GENTLEMAN.

YOU LOOK JUST WONDERFUL, MAMA.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

OH, IS TODAY MOTHER'S DAY?

DON'T YOU REMEMBER? I CALLED
YOU AND TOLD YOU I'D BE HERE.

OF COURSE. OF COURSE, VIRGINIA.

NO, DARLIN'. VIRGINIA
COULDN'T COME. I'M BLANCHE.

HERE. LOOK. I BROUGHT
YOU A LITTLE PRESENT.

LACE HANDKERCHIEFS. MY.

YOU ALWAYS USED TO SAY THAT

THERE WERE TWO THINGS A LADY
COULD NEVER HAVE ENOUGH OF:

LACE HANDKERCHIEFS
AND GENTLEMAN CALLERS.

MAYBE NEXT MOTHER'S DAY I'LL
BRING YOU A GENTLEMAN CALLER.

YOU WANNA GO HAVE SOME TEA?

NOT RIGHT NOW, DARLING.

MAMA, DO YOU REMEMBER
THAT MOTHER'S DAY

THAT I ALMOST RUINED WHEN
I RAN OFF TO GET MARRIED?

NO.

SURE YOU DO. I WAS A
SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL,

AND I WAS MADLY IN LOVE
WITH DECK BOEVINGLOH.

WE'D BEEN DATING FOR A MONTH,
SO IT SEEMED PERFECTLY LOGICAL

WHEN HE DROPPED BY CHEERLEADING
PRACTICE AND ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM.

OH, I THOUGHT HE WAS A
WONDERFUL CATCH AT THE TIME.

HE WAS 40, OUT OF WORK,

TWICE DIVORCED, HAD THREE KIDS.

BUT THE REAL REASON I WANTED
TO MARRY HIM WAS BECAUSE

HIS OLDEST DAUGHTER WAS A
RIVAL OF MINE AT CHEERLEADING,

AND I FIGURED IF I MARRIED
DECK, I'D BE HER MAMA...

AND I COULD KICK
HER OFF THE SQUAD.

ANYWAY, I REMEMBER THE
NEXT DAY, I WAS IN THE REXALL

WHEN DECK CAME IN LOOKIN' MORE
HANDSOME THAN I'VE EVER SEEN HIM.

OH! BLACK MOTORCYCLE BOOTS,

SKINTIGHT LEVIS, A
MATCH IN HIS MOUTH,

AND A WHITE T-SHIRT WITH
THE SLEEVES ROLLED UP

TO REVEAL HIS BRAND-NEW
WOODY THE WOODPECKER TATTOO.

GOD, I WAS AN IDIOT.

ANYWAY, HE SAUNTERED OVER
TO ME AT THE SODA FOUNTAIN

AND GAVE ME THIS LONG,
SMOLDERIN' LOOK AND SAID,

"SO?"

OH, I NEARLY FAINTED DEAD-AWAY
ON THE SPOT. NEXT THING I KNEW,

I WAS SITTIN' IN THAT STUDEBAKER
RACING OUT TOWARD BAYOU COUNTRY

WHERE DECK KNEW THIS JUSTICE
OF THE PEACE WHO SPECIALIZED

IN MARRYING STUPID TEENAGE
GIRLS FROM WELL-TO-DO FAMILIES.

LUCKY FOR ME, OLD MAN MONTGOMERY
HAD BEEN IN THE REXALL THAT DAY

AND OVERHEARD US MAKING PLANS
AND TIPPED OFF YOU AND DADDY.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU
GOT THERE AHEAD OF US.

BUT WHEN WE PULLED UP
TO BUBBA'S CHAPEL OF BLISS...

AND TACKLE SHOP,

THERE YOU WERE.

WELL, I WAS READY FOR
THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE,

BUT ALL YOU SAID
WAS, "WHY, DARLIN',

"I JUST CAME OUT HERE TO GIVE
YOU AWAY WITH MY BLESSING.

"I THINK MARRYING DECK

MIGHT BE THE BEST THING IN
THE WORLD FOR YOU, BLANCHE."

WELL, AT 17,

I WASN'T ABOUT TO DO
ANYTHING YOU WANTED ME TO DO.

AND YOU KNEW THAT.

I GAVE DECK BACK
HIS I.D. BRACELET...

THAT HAD "DECK" ON ONE SIDE

AND "ALLERGIC TO THE
LAW" ON THE OTHER,

HOPPED IN THE CAR WITH YOU
AND DADDY, AND WE TOOK OFF HOME.

I ASKED YOU IF YOU
WERE MAD AT ME.

YOU SAID, "WHY, NO, DARLIN'.

THIS IS THE BEST MOTHER'S
DAY I'VE EVER HAD."

DON'T YOU REMEMBER THAT, MAMA?

WELL, I THOUGHT THAT
HAPPENED TO VIRGINIA.

WASN'T VIRGINIA THE SLUT?

NO, MA'AM. THAT WAS ME.

BLANCHE, THAT DIDN'T
HAPPEN ON MOTHER'S DAY.

THAT HAPPENED CHRISTMAS DAY.

19... 1949.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

HEY, THAT WAS CHRISTMAS D...

YOU REMEMBERED, MAMA.

BLANCHE,

THERE ARE DAYS WHEN I
CAN'T REMEMBER WHO I AM,

BUT TRUST ME,

I REMEMBER EVERY
STUNT YOU EVER PULLED.

THAT'S HOW I GOT HALF THE GRAY
HAIRS ON THIS 85-YEAR-OLD HEAD.

HONEY, YOU'RE 89.

OH, DARLIN', DIDN'T I EVER
TEACH YOU ANYTHING?

NO TRUE LADY EVER TELLS HER AGE.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MAMA.

BYE, CHARLIE.
THANKS FOR CALLING.

NOW CAN WE GO EAT?

NO. I HAVEN'T HEARD
FROM MICHAEL YET.

FINE. WAIT FOR YOUR PHONE CALL.

MY BLOOD SUGAR'LL
DROP. I'LL HAVE A STROKE.

THIS CORSAGE'LL LIVE
LONGER THAN I WILL.

YOU KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANS TO A MOTHER
TO TALK TO HER CHILD ON MOTHER'S DAY.

ONE MOTHER'S DAY, I SPENT
WITH SOMEBODY ELSE'S MOTHER.

ON MY WAY BACK TO ST. OLAF, I
WAS STUCK IN THIS BUS STATION.

BRRR! I'D ALMOST FORGOTTEN
WHAT REAL COLD FEELS LIKE.

I'VE GOTTEN USED TO
TROPICAL WEATHER.

YOU HERE ALL THE
WAY FROM NEBRASKA?

MIAMI.

MIAMI.

THAT CLOSER TO OMAHA OR LINCOLN?

GEE, IT'S GREAT TO BE HOME.

THEY TOLD ME I COULD CHANGE
BUSES HERE FOR ST. OLAF.

- THAT'S RIGHT.
- HOW MUCH?

YOU WANT THE
EXPRESS OR THE YOKEL?

- YOU MEAN LOCAL?
- I MEAN YOKEL.

A FAMILY OF FIRST COUSINS

PLAYS BANJO MUSIC AS THE
PASSENGERS GET ON AND OFF.

- DO THEY TAKE REQUESTS?
- NO.

GIVE ME THE EXPRESS.

YOU GOT AN HOUR TO KILL.

OH, THANK YOU.

EXCUSE ME.

ARE YOU WAITING FOR THE
BUS TO NORTHERN FALLS?

NO. ST. OLAF.

I'VE VISITED THERE.
LOVELY LITTLE TOWN.

OH, YES. YES, IT IS.

ROLLING HILLS, CHARMING HOMES.

- YES.
- FULL OF IDIOTS.

YES.

WHAT?

I NEVER SAW ANYTHING
LIKE IT. MUST BE THE WATER.

I GREW UP IN ST. OLAF. MOST
OF MY FAMILY STILL LIVES THERE.

OH, NO OFFENSE, DEARIE.

I DIDN'T SAY THAT EVERYONE
THERE WAS AN IDIOT.

IT JUST SEEMED,
THOUGH, THAT PER CAPITA,

THEY HAD MORE THAN THEIR SHARE.

OH, WELL, PER CAPITA,
YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT.

DO YOU LIVE IN NORTHERN FALLS?

NO. I'M PAYING MY
DAUGHTER A VISIT.

FOR MOTHER'S DAY? ME, TOO.

OH, NOT JUST MY DAUGHTER.
ALL OF MY CHILDREN.

THEY PAID FOR MY
TRIP FROM MIAMI.

THEY FIGURED IT'D BE
CHEAPER FOR ME TO COME HERE

THAN FOR ALL OF
THEM TO FLY THERE.

THEY FIGURED THAT OUT?

AND-AND THEY LIVE IN ST. OLAFS?

YES.

OH, YOU-YOU MUST BE
VERY PROUD OF THEM.

OH. I AM.

SO, WHEN WAS IT
YOU VISITED ST. OLAF?

OH, LORD, IT MUST
BE 50 YEARS AGO NOW.

I WENT TO A WEDDING.

A DISTANT COUSIN OF MINE
MARRIED A LOCAL ST. OLAF GIRL.

- WHAT WAS THE GIRL'S NAME?
- SONJA YONGEN...

YONGENFRAULIKSTEINERBRAU?

YOU KNOW HER?

KNOW HER? I WAS FLOWER
GIRL AT THE WEDDING.

WELL, OF COURSE THERE
WERE NO FLOWERS THAT YEAR

BECAUSE OF WHAT
HAPPENED TO OLD MAN SMITH.

HE WAS OUR TOWN FLORIST. HE WAS
ALSO OUR TOWN'S ONLY BLACKSMITH.

COME TO THINK OF IT, HE WAS
OUR TOWN'S ONLY BLACK MAN.

ANYWAY, WHEN HE FIRST MOVED IN,

THE TOWN COUNCIL DECIDED TO GIVE HIM
A TRADITIONAL SCANDINAVIAN WELCOME...

GATHERING ON HIS FRONT LAWN

AND SINGING SONGS AND
DRESSING UP IN BEDSHEETS.

'COURSE, COMING
FROM CHATTANOOGA,

HE WASN'T FAMILIAR
WITH THE CUSTOM.

HE HAD A HEART ATTACK.

HE SPENT MOST OF THE
SUMMER IN INTENSIVE CARE.

AFTER THAT, WHEN
SOMEBODY NEW MOVED IN,

THE TOWN COUNCIL JUST
HANDED OUT PEANUT BRITTLE...

AND FREE PASSES TO
THE LOCAL MOVIE HOUSE,

WHICH THEY HOPED
TO BUILD SOMEDAY.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?
YOU SEEM UPSET.

I WAS JUST THINKING

I'M SORRY I RECENTLY
GOT A HEARING AID.

DON'T WORRY. IT
HARDLY SHOWS AT ALL.

ANYWAY, AT SONJA'S WEDDING,

OF COURSE WITHOUT FLOWERS
THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO...

AND DISCOVERED SHE
WAS ON THE HAYRIDE

WITH LITTLE LARS, NOT BIG LARS.

SHE YELLED, "WHOA!" AND
JUMPED RIGHT OFF THE WAGON.

EITHER THAT STORY
IS ACTUALLY FUNNY,

OR THE BATTERIES ARE GOING
IN AND OUT IN MY HEARING AID.

ROSE, I WANT YOU TO KNOW

THAT I THINK IT'S VERY SWEET

THAT YOU'RE KEEPING AN
OLD LADY COMPANY LIKE THIS.

DON'T BE SILLY. I'M
ENJOYING EVERY MINUTE.

EVERY HOUR.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THE
BUSES ARE SO LATE.

I SHOULD CALL THE KIDS AGAIN.

ARE YOU SURE YOU SHOULDN'T
CALL YOUR DAUGHTER?

MOTHER'S DAY ISN'T
UNTIL TOMORROW.

SHE KNOWS I'LL BE
THERE. I ALWAYS AM.

STILL, SHE MUST BE
WORRIED BY NOW.

ROSE.

MY DAUGHTER'S DEAD.

SHE PASSED AWAY SOME TIME AGO.

I GO TO THE CEMETERY
ON MOTHER'S DAY.

IT WAS ALWAYS A SPECIAL
DAY FOR THE TWO OF US.

I LIKE TO PRETEND IT STILL IS.

PROBLEM IS, THIS YEAR I DON'T
THINK I'M GOING TO MAKE IT.

AREN'T YOU FEELING WELL?

I RAN AWAY FROM THE HOME,

AND THEY'RE JUST ABOUT
TO CATCH UP WITH ME.

ARE YOU ANNA EGGERMAN?

ANNA, THEY'RE WORRIED
ABOUT YOU BACK AT THE HOME.

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE
TO COME WITH ME.

ATTENTION! EXPRESS
TO CEDAR GROVE,

RIVER JUNCTION, NORTHERN
FALLS, NOW BOARDING!

FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD, JACOB.
THERE'S THREE PEOPLE HERE.

YOU COULD'VE JUST
POINTED TO THE DOOR.

SHERIFF, THERE'S BEEN A MISTAKE.

- THIS WOMAN'S MY MOTHER.
- I HAVE A TELEX THAT SAYS...

I DON'T CARE WHAT IT SAYS. SHE'S MY
MOTHER, AND WE'RE ON OUR WAY HOME.

IF YOU'LL EXCUSE US, WE HAVE
A BUS TO CATCH. COME ON, MAMA.

THANK YOU, ROSE.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

IT'S A REALLY SWEET STORY, ROSE.

SO SELL IT TO THE READER'S
DIGEST. LET'S GET OUTTA HERE.

MUST BE MICHAEL.

HELLO.

HELLO, MICHAEL!

OKAY. THAT'S IT. WHEN SHE GETS
OFF THE PHONE, WE'RE GOING.

I'M TIRED OF LISTENING TO
LOUSY MOTHER'S DAY STORIES.

SOPHIA, DON'T YOU HAVE A STORY?

I SAID I WAS TIRED OF LOUSY
STORIES. I WOULDN'T MIND A GOOD ONE.

BROOKLYN, 1957, THE
SECOND SUNDAY IN MAY.

I WAS GETTING THE HOUSE
READY WHICH MOSTLY MEANT

TRYING TO GET MY SALVADORE
INTO A SHIRT WITH SLEEVES.

TURN THAT THING OFF AND GET UP.

MAMA WILL BE HERE
AND YOU LOOK LIKE A BUM.

SO, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
SHE ALREADY THINKS I'M A BUM.

- SALVADORE.
- WHAT?

DID YOU GET ME A PRESENT
FOR MOTHER'S DAY?

- WHY? YOU'RE NOT MY MOTHER.
- I'M THE MOTHER
OF YOUR CHILDREN.

A THOUSAND NIGHTS OF BEGGING.
THREE TIMES, YOU SAID YES.

FOR THAT, YOU WANT A PRESENT?

IT'S NOT ENOUGH THEY
DECLARE IT A NATIONAL HOLIDAY?

THAT'S MAMA.

SHE SEES YOU LIKE THIS, WE'LL
NEVER CONVINCE HER TO MOVE IN.

- MOVE! MOVE!
- OH, BOY.

IT'S A DARK DAY IN BROOKLYN.

THE DODGERS ARE MOVING
OUT, YOUR MOTHER'S MOVING IN!

GRANDMA, HERE WE ARE.

I'M IN A WHEELCHAIR. I'M NOT
BLIND. I CAN SEE WHERE WE ARE.

AND IT COULD STAND
A GOOD VACUUM.

HI, DOROTHY.

HELLO, MAMA.

WHERE'S SALVADORE?
HE'S HIDING FROM ME.

HE ALWAYS HIDES FROM ME.
THE LITTLE MONKEY HATES ME.

DON'T BE SILLY. POP
IS CRAZY ABOUT YOU.

DON'T LIE TO YOUR
GRANDMOTHER! IT'S A SIN!

HE'S NOT CRAZY ABOUT YOU,
BUT HE'S VERY FOND OF YOU.

HE HATES ME. THE MAN REPAIRS
COMPLICATED MACHINERY FOR A LIVING.

THREE TIMES THIS MONTH, HE COULDN'T
SET THE BRAKE ON MY WHEELCHAIR.

- THAT WAS A COINCIDENCE.
- ALL THREE TIMES WAS AT
THE TOP OF THE STAIRS

TO THE FLATBUSH SUBWAY STATION.

IF SALVADORE HATES YOU, WHY
DOES HE WANT YOU TO LIVE WITH US?

- WHAT?
- SALVADORE AND I WOULD
LIKE YOU TO MOVE IN.

- I AM NOT MOVING IN.
- WHY NOT?

- LET ME TELL YOU A STORY.
- SICILY, 1881.

A BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG
PEASANT GIRL...

- MAMA, NOT ANOTHER STORY.
- SOPHIA, COME CLOSER.

GRANDMA!

YOU'RE MOVIN' IN. WE
THINK IT'S BEST FOR YOU.

YOU DIDN'T DISCUSS IT WITH ME.

FINE. LET'S DISCUSS IT.

THERE'S NOTHING TO
DISCUSS! I'M NOT MOVING IN.

DOROTHY, IF I EVER DO THIS TO
YOU, I WANT YOU TO SHOOT ME.

COULD YOU PUT THAT IN WRITING?

DOROTHY, COME CLOSER.

OKAY, I CAN SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

TAKE ME TO THE TOP
OF THE STAIRS AGAIN?

I DON'T WANT YOU HERE, HUH?

THIS IS MY HOME. A
MAN'S HOME IS HIS CASTLE.

IN THIS CASTLE, I'M
THE KING. CAPISCE?

HE'S TALKING NONSENSE.

WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?

I WANT YOU TO MOVE IN.

- YOU MEAN THAT?
- NO.

AH! TOO BAD. YOU SAID IT.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MAMA.

PLEASE!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, MA.

OKAY, HONEY, JUST A SECOND.
MA, HE WANTS TO TALK TO YOU.

HELLO, MICHAEL.

HAVE YOU EATEN?

WELL, I HAVEN'T. GOOD-BYE.

LET'S ROLL.

SOPHIA, WE CAN'T. WE
HAVEN'T ALL GOTTEN OUR CALLS.

OH, FORGET IT. SHE'S
NOT GONNA CALL.

WELL, SHE MIGHT.

HELLO.

JANET, IT'S SO GOOD TO
HEAR YOUR VOICE, HONEY.

MA, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

COOKING. IF I WAIT FOR YOU TO
TAKE ME, I'LL STARVE TO DEATH.

- YOU'RE MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY.
- I KNOW. IT'S MOTHER'S DAY.

YOU CELEBRATE YOUR
WAY, I'LL CELEBRATE MINE.
