Here he is.
I'm so sorry I'm late.
For my fair maiden.
What are these? Well, I was a little nervous About you traveling, So, I stopped by a creek And gathered some pebbles with good energy To keep in your purse.
Holy mother of gayness.
Unfortunately, when I got back to the van, I realized that the engine Had dropped out through the floor, So I had to run the rest of the way.
But, luckily, I found this running twig And it totally tripled my speed.
Running twig? Really? We're all just gonna let that one go? All right.
You know what? We're gonna take you.
Daddy, I told you.
I just want to go with Doug.
Ok.

There's gonna be a dirt road.
You're gonna take it 10 miles all the way to the tarmac.
Ok, so, is that a right or a left out of the driveway? To a future without Doug in it.
Mmm.
Amen.
You know, I always used to have this nightmare Where they got married and then their little kids Ended up running around In scraggly beards and flip-flops Calling me granddude.

He, uh, he should be all right, But he got banged up pretty good.

How's my car? Eddie! Areare you ok, Doug? Tell us what happened.
Well, when I was taking your shortcut Back from the airport, I was pretty emotional from saying good-bye to Allison.
And I was cranking your neil diamond cd, And midway through forever in blue jeans, I hit a pothole and I just flipped the bitch.
I tried to call Allison, But it went straight to her voice mail.
She's probably in the air already.
You know, like they say.
C'est la vie.
Soup du jour.
I couldn't call my parents.
We're not even on speaking terms.
So, you guys were the only ones I could think of to reach out to.
Well, we're glad that you did, Doug.
Ok, we're gonna hit it.
Oh, my God, Doug! Honey, what are you? Baby! My catheter.
I thought you left? My plane was delayed, So I turned on my phone and I got your message.
God, I can't believe I almost lost you.
I missed you so much.
Oh, I missed you more.
I never want to be without you again.
I never want to be without you again.
Don't go to paris.
Ok.
Will you marry me? Totally.
Baby, you ok? Not totally.
Oh, this is so romantic.
Our first time in the house as fiancee and Guy who fianceed me.
It'sit's almost as if the universe Had a master plan for us to be together.
Yes.
God has certainly made His feelings towards us very clear.
May I get a glass of water for my fiance? Your fiance would love that.
I'll be right back, fiance.
I'll miss you, fiancee.
Just Go get him the water.
Mr.
And mrs.
Stark Wait, what am I saying? Mom, dad.
I just want to thank you guys For everything that you're doing.
Well, it's a pleasure, Doug.
So, Doug, how about we get a hot meal in you And get you to a motel with a ramp? Dad, the doctor said it was going to be 6 weeks Before they can even take the screws out of his body.
Well, actually, then they have to refracture me And even out my legs.
You are gonna stay right here on this couch Until you get out of those casts And you're back on your feet.
I'm gonna go grab mom's rubber spatula To work your itchy parts.
Boy, there are so many things being said That I don't want to hear.
All right.
I think I'm gonna go up And get Doug a pair of your pajamas.
And we have a winner.
Hey, I heard about the accident.
Wanted to come by and make sure everyone was ok.
How you doing, man? Well, I'm in a lot of pain and Cool.
Listen, Eddie.
Do not take your car to a body shop.
My cousin jimmy is a mechanic.
He'll hook you up.
He'll fix your whole car for, like, 90 bucks.
What are you talking about? Oh, yeah.
He fixes dents.
He'll pop that thing right on out.
Kenny Kenny, my whole front end is caved in.
I'm telling you, man, The man will pop it out.
All right.
Who do I make the check out to? Make it out to pam's cupcakes.
Great plan, Joy.
Good job.
Let's send her on a trip So she can sleep her way around europe The way mama did.
I thought it would break them up.
It got them engaged.
You know, none of this would have happened If it weren't for your stupid shortcut.
Hey, my shortcut got her to the plane on time.
What idiot takes a shortcut on the way home? All right.
You know what? If you know a shorter way, Why wouldn't you take it both ways, ass? Because, Mrs.
Ass asserson, You take a shortcut en you want to get to some place faster.
If everybody took a shortcut at the same time, What would it be? Clogged.
Use your head, woman.
Why don't you take a small shortcut to hell? Is that the potty mouth you used when you were turning tricks in Spain? Ok, everybody just calm down, all right? We are turning on each other And we have a very large problem downstairs And we need to work together and fix this.
You're right.
Ooh.
We have to come up with a way Where Allison understands That this engagement is a big mistake.
She is 21 years old.
This is absolutely crazy.
We just have to make her realize that.
How are we going to do that? II got it.
Ok.
Here.
We got married young.
Really young.
Way too young.
Are you kidding me? Heh.
Look how this turned out.
It's awful.
It's a disaster.
It's a train wreck.
I mean, look.
We have no money.
We have dead end jobs.
No plans for the future.
Hey, the only good thing to show for our marriage Is downstairs itchin' a cripple's business With your flatware.
So, we'll tell Allison If she gets married this young, She's gonna turn out just like us.
That'll scare the hell out of her.
That's perfect.
Let's go down there right now.
No, no, no.
We can't go right now.
Not in front of Doug.
Tomorrow, I will get her alone And I will take care of this.
Ohoh, ok.
Ok.
We'll do it that way.
I mean, who better to show her how bad marriage is than us? I love you.
I love you, too.
You wanna have sex? No.
Me neither.
What are you doing? I thought you were gonna pop it out? I can't pop it out.
I gave the man my word that you would pop it out.
Some things are not poppable.
Pop it! You pop it.
I quit.
Good! How's it going over there? Oh, good, good, good.
Just taking a 5.
Put on your driving gloves.
Real soon.
Vroom, vroom, vroom! Hey.
How's it going, guys? Pretty good.
I'm just reteaching my mouth how to chew.
Guess who's up to pudding? You keep working the miracles, kids.
All right.
Well? So, did you talk to Allison? No, I haven't had a chance to get her alone.
Ever since the engagement, Those two are joined at the shattered hip.
Okay, guess who's ready for their sponge bath? Come here.
What? Ahem.
Hey, Allison! I think that maybe you've done enough for today.
Why don't you let youryour dad take care of this one? Take care of what one? You know, giving Doug his sponge bath.
What the hell? Come on.
You know, I think that it will give me a chance To have some alone time with Allison Andand also an opportunity for you To do some father-in-law, son-in-law bonding.
Oh, why do we have to jump right to sponge bath? Maybe I can wheel him to a strip club.
Man up, grab a sponge, And bathe your future son-in-law.
Sir, you don't have to do this If it makes you uncomfortable.
No.
I want to.
No one knows how to bathe a man Better than another man.
Sir, don't you think it would be more effective if you looked at me? No, I do not.
Don't take it personally, But I once spent a whole summer washing dogs And I couldn't look them in the eye, either.
Oh, yeah.
That's the spot right there.
What spot? No, I'm just I'm just saying That that feels really good.
Doug.
Yes, sir? Say that one more time And I'm throwing in the hair dryer.
You know, sweetie, I just, um, I want to talk about this engagement thing.
I mean, you just you're so young And your dad and I, we got married very young.
I know.
You guys totally inspire me.
Inspire you to what? To be like you.
I mean, I've always wanted what you guys have.
Of course.
I mean, who wouldn't? What exactly do we have? Uh, an amazing relationship? I mean, all of my friends' parents are divorced And they hate each other, But you guys, I mean, you're still together After all of these years and you still Are best friends.
We do make a pretty good team, I guess.
Pretty good? Mom, the reason that I'm so confident About getting married to Doug Is because you've shown me first hand How great a marriage can be.
Are you crying? No.
And perfect.
All right.
Ok, let's flip me over.
Uh, just a heads up.
The back of my thighs Is where a lot of things congeal.
Ok.
Ahem.
You know what? Let's, uh, let's take a union fiver For the scrubber, huh? Yeah, yeah.
Oh, God! Hey, sir.
Can I share something with you? I'm kinda getting cold feet.
Oh, oh, really? Really, Doug? So, your feet are cold now, huh? Well, it isn't going great over here, either.
This is the least happy I've ever been Sitting on the toilet.
No, no.
I mean about the engagement.
Go on.
Well, I don't know if it was the emotion Of seeing Allison go away Or the trauma of the accident Or the fact that I was Pretty hopped up on painkillers.
I mean, my body isn't used to drugs That don't come in a brownie, you know? Well, I'm starting to think That maybe I might have made a mistake.
I mean, I love your daughter so much But I justI'm not sure we're ready.
If you're asking my permission To not marry my daughter, The answer is "yes.
" Joy? Joy Joy? Darling? Great news.
The wedding's In my bedroom.
Listen, I thought you were going to talk her out of it.
I know.
I was going to, But then, you know, She started talking about you and me And how she admired our relationship And how cute we are together And I just want to eat your nose.
What is wrong with you? Nothing.
It's just Allison reminded me That we actually have a pretty great marriage And, you know, we're her role models.
What are you? High? Did you get into Doug's brownies? What? Come on, Eddie.
I'm happy.
They're happy.
Everybody's happy.
Well, I'm not happy Because I just spent an hour playing rub-a-dub-Doug So you could put the kibosh on this.
I'm sorry.
I guess I just got a little swept up in the moment.
Swept up in the moment? You practically set the date.
Well, actually Butbut! Please, listen.
It doesn't matter, ok? Because Doug already has cold feet, And he agrees that they're too young to even do this.
Doug, tell her what you told me earlier.
Go ahead.
What do you think? I don't know how I ever could have doubted this.
You're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
Oh, I'm hurt.
Ok, we got $1,500 for a nonrefundable plane ticket.
Yep.
And you prepaid the room and board For an entire semester.
Sure did.
Saved us 50 bucks.
Ok, so, 50 bucks Goes towards the $700 penalty I had to pay For an uninsured motorist driving my car.
And that leaves us a net loss of Ok, that means all the food in our kitchen Has to last us for another How's my car? I'm gonna level with you, man.
Bad news is, we cannot fix that car for 90 bucks.
Good news is, my cousin tito Will tow it away for $120.
Can I get an apple? Not until March.
