And i appreciate the effort, But right now, i'm comfy.
Shh-Shh- Doug! Easy.

You see, the more you struggle, the more i squeeze.
I'm like an anaconda.
Ok! All right! Ok! A few more minutes.
All right.
That's my hot pocket.
It has to be rotated.
Excuse me.
Seriously, is our mailman a boy or a girl? Because i'm leaning towards boy again.
You know what? I - I really can't focus on that right now, 'Cause i'm still sitting here with dry cocoa puffs.
My dad's not back with the milk yet? The market's And now we're coming up on an hour and a half.
Are you sure you don't want to try the skim milk? Just trying to think outside the box.
Where the hell is he? I don't know.
Do you think something could've happened to him? Doug! No, nothing happened.
I'm back.
All right, well, where's the milk? Oh, i've got something Much better than milk.
A ping-Pong table! Dad, what happened? Well, i was halfway to the market When i came upon the betchers' garage sale.
Luckily, douglas had given me a 50, And this little honey Was calling to me like a french whore.
Ok.
You know what? Hold his legs, 'Cause i'm gonna milk him.
Oh, hey, did you hear that denise got promoted At the bowling alley? Oh, yeah? Yeah.
That's great.
You know, with her, uh, making more money, We can finally afford to get a nice place together, And i can finally ask the big question.
What? "Can i touch 'em?" Anyway, i'm going to go surprise her at work.
See you later - And this was fun.
All right.
I see the table has quickly become The recreational hub of the neighborhood.
It's something to do.
So you up for a game? You want to play me? I should warn you.
Of all miniature paddle games, This is my forte.
I'll take my chances.
Here.
You can serve.
Ok, gramps, any way we can speed things up here a little bit? All righty.
That's 11-Zip.
You didn't even get the paddle off your shoulder that game.
You're not better than me, ok? I just keep losing the ball in the white of your legs.
Oh, no.
You're soft from playing In your cozy, shag-Carpeted rec rooms.
I learned ping-Pong on the streets! You either got good or you died! Just serve.
Wasn't ready.
Ok, fellas, that's So, that's 9.

Out of 10.
Keep it.
Thanks! Oh, hi! Hey, sweetums.
Um, is this the big promotion You were telling me about? You're a cocktail waitress now? Yeah.
It all happened so fast.
It doesn't even seem real to me.
Hey, what's the matter? I don't know.
I mean, Are you sure this is such a good idea? Yeah.
Why not? Well, i-Strange men and liquor quick-Draw lotto machine.
This is a faster lifestyle than you're used to.
Honey, if you don't want me to do this, Then i won't, but the only reason i took this job Was so i could make enough money To start a real life with my midnight swordsman.
Hey, sweetheart, where are those hot wings? So, what do you think? I think you've got some hot wings to get.
Yeah.
How do you like that, old man? What? Are you gettin' scared? You getting scared? Um i am.
Hey.
What's going on, baby? If i could just develop a killer serve, He'll never have a chance to do his slam.
That's all the old man's got.
That's it! That's what this is about, My dad beating you at ping-Pong? Yeah.
It's very annoying.
How can i be beat by anybody who eats soup like this? Doug, what does it matter? I mean, you're bigger and smarter And live in the aboveground part of the house.
Can't you just let him have this one thing? Come on, just play with me.
Practice.
Come on.
Fine.
Can we stop now? Let's just finish this rally.
Ok.
Come on! Look alive! This is really fun, But i think i should be going.
All right.
Would you al least hit one back? Will you stop?! This is just like dodgeball all over again! What's the matter with her? I don't know.
She's just a mess in general.
Hey.
How's your shoulder? You hit the car pretty hard on my last slam there.
It's fine.
Well, just cover it up before you go to work.
I don't want people to think i smack you around.
Ok.
Hello, douglas.
Hey.
Or should i call you "soft serve"? You see the double meaning? You clearly love your soft ice cream, And in ping-Pong your- Oh, god.
I'm sorry.
I didn't realize you were so sensitive about me beating you.
It's not you.
What do you mean? I'm over losing to you.
You? You're a freak of nature.
Your hands are 5 times the size of a normal man's.
It's carrie.
Ohh.
So, she's been cheating on you? Is it pedro? No.
She's not cheating on me.
She's beating me at ping-Pong.
Ohh.
I'm sorry.
I don't follow.
It's just i knew what i was getting when i married carrie.
She's in charge.
She runs the show and i'm good with that.
It's just sports has always been my thing, you know? And now that she can beat me at a game as stupid as ping-Pong, It's like like you might as well pull up your testicles like a venetian blind? Something like that, yeah.
I mean, how the hell did she get so good, anyway? How do you think? I taught her.
Then teach me.
What? I want you to train me to beat her.
I haven't trained anyone in years.
Come on.
I need you.
Ok, but remember this, douglas: If i train you, We're going to be doing things my way.

It's called "the lean and squeeze.
" If you were in the industry, you'd know that.
Wait.
Wait.
So, you're not quitting.
Is that what i'm hearing? That's right.
Fair enough, but i think i should let you know That if you're going to keep Letting strange men paw all over you, I may have to get out there myself.
There's a lot of women lined up to ride spence mountain.
Well, i hope they enjoy a short, bumpy ride.
Excuse me.
Come on! At least put some wood on it.
I'm playing with a spoon! Of course you are.
If you practice with a spoon, Then the paddle will seem like the size of texas.
Ok.
That's it.
You know, i'm-I'm done.
Douglas i'm very close to giving you another 10 laps.
No, i'm not running around the ping-Pong table anymore.

Let's get back to basics.
Just show me your stroke.
Ok that was a train wreck.
What's wrong with it? Come here.
What are you doing? I'm making myself one with you.
Ohhhh.
Can you make yourself one without gyrating? That's it.
Nice and easy.
Like you're spanking an unruly child.
You're too tense.
That's your problem.
Release.
Release into me! Ok, that's it! Stop it! Stop! No! No! You were just right that time.
Now, put down the spoon and pick up the paddle.

Some marriages, they break up over money, or someone cheats.
I mean, is our thing really going to be ping-Pong? Looks that way.
