I love that.
That's the book thing.
It looks great on the wall.
No, really.

I mean, I can relate.
If I lost that kid's love, I'd be done for.

Don't you try to calm me down right now! I didn't realize that.
Oh, yeah.
Stakes are super high.
I mean, especially with the surgery in a few weeks.
What? - What surgery? - Pectoral implants, yeah.
You mean? Augmentation de No, this would strictly be to make them bigger.
A lot of the top designers tend to favor super lean arms with a plump chest.
Do you see this? Take a closer look, cause it's fucking swelling.
Can't he just work out? And then Well, no.
I mean that would build up the arms too, right? - [LUKE.]
in the fucking gym anymore! - Right.
The ice is melting.
I need constant ice on my chest! I mean there should be another way to grow the Hey, you got a pitch? I'm all ears, captain.
Yes, but he's 15.
Yeah, that's like 40 in any other profession, bro.
I mean, if he's not walking Fashion Week by 17, maybe 18? Trust me, he can start looking for a real job.
Oh, wow.
And we wouldn't want that.
Obviously, of course.
That's what I'm saying, yeah.
I'll be back.
- I told you this was a bad idea.
- Okay, let me go see him for a minute - No, you're leaving.

- On it.
Sorry about that.
- Let me see him.
Just - No, he doesn't want to see you.
- Go.
- Hey, what's with the pec surgery? - Oh, you're parenting now? - I'm his father.
I want to know.
Okay, well look.
Don't worry.
I said to him if he wants them, then that's his choice, but he has to pay for them himself.
Oh, really? The money's the concern? Really? You're fine with this? Our son is getting a boob job? Stop it.
You're not from here.
It's different.
This is just what they do.
- Who do? - What do you care? - I care! - Okay.
I'm his father! I want to know.
Like you're here for him? You're here for you, don't you see that? The narcissist.
That's what you call me.
- Don't mind me, just running the ice up.
