Come on! Whatever it is, the heat'll kill it.
Just stay! Hey, arthur.
Hey.
Um, is carrie home? Nope, they're out with friends.
I just finished watching tv in their bed.
Mum's the word.
She said she had a book on résumé writing That she would loan me.
I- I gotta find a new job.
My unemployment runs out in, like, a week.
Ah, yes, no more sucking on the taxpayer's teat! Right.
Would-Would you happen to know where that book is? Spencer, how-To books are a waste of time.
I can teach you everything you need to know.
Uh-Huh.
Um, arthur, i think i'd rather Learn from someone who's been successful at Anything.
Touché.
It's true.
I've never held a job very long, But i've landed myself over 74 of them- One as a woman! Yeah, i'm gonna keep looking for that book.
Look, spencer.
All day long, i sit in that basement Doing the word jumbles and praying for death.
If i could help someone else succeed, I'd be accomplishing something.
Let me live through you, huh? I- All right, what do we do? Come downstairs.
We'll play some trust games And take it from there.
Come on- Let's go, baby.
I'm glad we did something different.
Nah, that's the last magic show i go to.
I don't need to pick a card or see a bunny.
Those metal hoops- They can keep 'em together, take 'em apart- I- I-I don't care! Well, i thought he was amazing.
Man, you're just upset 'cause he said he needed A bigger saw to cut you in half.
If a magician needs to be hurtful, He's not very good.
All right, next weekend we'll do something That's a little more your speed.
Actually, we got plans next weekend.
No, we don't.
Yeah, we do.
All right, look, i was gonna wait, But i've had something poking me In the pocket all night long.
You think you're gonna keep that going till next weekend? You know what these are? We got it? I just signed the papers today.
Oh! Wha? Wha-What's going on? We got a vacation home.
What? Can you believe it? I cannot believe it! I forgot the saucers.
So where is it? It's, like, 2 hours outside of the city, Right on this little lake.
You guys are gonna love it.
Oh, you know what? Hey-Let's celebrate With some cake! Oh, my god, i'm so happy.
This is fantastic.
What's the matter? Don't tell me we're out of cake.
No! Then what is it? What is it? How can you say, "what is it?" Whom is it? Doug, they bought a vacation house.
A vacation house! I get it.
Ok, you're sad 'Cause your friends are happy.
Come here, someone needs a hug! No.
No! I understand.
Listen to me, man.
I mean, how come we can't afford a vacation house? You make just as much money as deacon does And she doesn't work at all! Maybe their rich uncle died.
I didn't know they have a rich uncle.
I don't think they do.
Oh, come on! Look, maybe they got some sort of settlement.
Oh, like from a malpractice suit.
A botched surgery maybe? Yes, yes.
Oh, yeah, look at that.
Kelly's boobs do not look right.
Eh, her boobs are as good as yours or mine.
H- Hey.
How many people does it take to cut a cake, Am i right? We'll be right in, all right.
You just slap a smile on your face And you pretend you like it when good things happen to other people.
All right? They're waiting.
No, i can't.
Just make an excuse or something.
I- I have to get into bed.
Carrie.
Look.
They may have a vacation home on a lake, But we got something much better.

Ok.
Ok? Ooh- I have a big one.
Who paid for the magic show the other night? Oh-Abracadabra, us! Exactly.

We are? Brother, you stabbed your own damn foot To get out of paying the check.
Yeah, that's because that's the only way We can get out of picking up a check.
What are you talking about? We paid for everything all weekend.
We have been carrying you guys for years.
What?! Gum and strippers ain't free, buddy.
Yeah.
And don't even get us started on holiday gifts.
Yeah, is it christmas or kwanzaa? Pick one! I can't believe what i'm hearing.
Guy, how much money do i spend on you At lunch every day? Look-Hey, we always split the bill in half.
We don't split the food in half.
All right, ok, listen.
If you haven't been sponging off us for years And you don't have a dead rich uncle, Then how do you explain That you guys can afford this place and we can't? Not that it's any of your business, But we have been saving for this place For a very long time.
We've been taking part of my paycheck Every week and putting it aside.
Look, we've cut back on takeout, gifts for each other.
We really sacrificed.
Well, i don't need your whole life story.
And anyway, we can save if we wanted to.
Then why didn't we? Why didn't we? You're asking me, "why didn't we?" Are you saying it's my fault? Uh, excuse me, but i'm not the one Who invests my paycheck in white castle every night.
Hey, first of all, i almost always have a coupon, Which is more than you can say when you go buy Your fancy halston dresses! Ok, i don't have any halston dresses, idiot.
It's not 1979.
I'm gonna be in the car! Wait, i saw you packing some pretty fancy clothes With some fruity labels, and that spells cash! Yeah, you don't even know how to spell cash! So we ever gonna tell them about the, uh, bad boob job? Uh, hell no! We take that to the grave! I mean they're looking a lot better, right? Oh, yeah.
Mr.
Gable.
We checked your résumé.
None of your references have ever heard of you, And that social security number you gave us Is the gamblers anonymous hotline.
We're gonna have to ask you to leave.
All right, then.
So tell me about your new job, big guy.
Nice try, spanky.
I already got fired.
