- Hit me, hit me.
- Well, why don't you try that? Oh, she's my grandmother.
I don't want to do that.
Plus, she doesn't respect me because she thinks I'm an idiot clown.
Well, you could you could make her respect you.
I mean, that's what your mom does.
Maybe be a little forceful with her, and tell her we gotta get out of here.
Yeah, you can do it.
- What's that? - Um, high five.
For what? I was trying to help you get pumped up.
- Okay, let's do it.

I'm so sorry, Chip.
What you thinkin' about? Oh.
I was thinkin' when I was young, I couldn't wait to move out and start my own life.
I thought I'd be an actress or a successful business woman.
And then I told myself when the boys got out of the house, and started their lives, that I'd do the same thing.
And then I thought Dale had it together.
But he didn't.
He's starting over.
And, well, Chip.
[Chuckles.]
I help them, I wait for them, and for what? My life gets lost in the shuffle.
I don't think this time I'm gonna be able to forgive them.
