? ? my favorite part about being a dad is just to see their faces in the morning when i wake them up. the first thing you think about is your wife and your kids and your family. you think about what life would be like for them, without you. so i had surgery locally, and it came back after my follow up that i needed a second surgery. and that's when i said i need a second opinion. through the doors, they greet you, they're smiling and i love the fact that they included me in the whole process and asked me what i wanted to do. it makes you feel like you're part of the family. rod came in with ah, pretty advanced cancer and i remember thinking, he's just like me, he's like my twin. we're almost the same age, the same height- he's much more athletic- but almost the same life circumstances as far as having kids and raising a family, he just happens to have cancer.
mor, so that the surgeon could take it out. i feel like this was the right way for me, and the right treatment for me, and the right process for me to go through. the diagnosis of cancer is one of those things that you want an answer now. we can do now here, and that is something that they appreciate because we match the sense of urgency that they have. if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with cancer, start your treatment with a perts who only treat cancer, every stage, every day. at cancer treatment centers of america, it's not one thing we do, it's the only thing we do. call or visit cancercenter.com for more information. it's a new normal for me right now, makes you appreciate the little things in life. every moment counts. the evolution of cancer care is here. cancer treatment centers of america.
oh, lamont. so, this is home sweet home? yeah. it's kind of a house and a business all rolled into one. it has a certain air about it, you know? yeah. well, we spray it down every day. you know, i can tell a lot about a man just seeing where he lives. now, don't go jumpin' to no hasty judgments. no. you know the first time you came in the coffee shop and i waited on you? u could? sugar, i sure liked the way that you order. very decisive. like you knew what you wanted. yeah, uh, i wanted a fatburger. and now i want you, you little onion ring. so, i came to the conclusion that you was sweet. keep goin'. and sensitive. keep goin'. and masculine. keep goin'. and ready to settle down. stop.
why? what's stoppin' you? my father. your father? yeah. my father doesn't think there's any woman in the world good enough for his only son. hey, but let's not talk about that now. sit on down here. i sure would like to meet your father. uh, well, i'm afraid that's impossible. see, he's in st. louis and ain't no telling when he'll be, you know, coming back. if he's in st. louis, he can't stop us from gettin' married. true. true. but, uh, there's somebody else that can. who? my godfather. your what? my godfather. yeah. see, he's stayin' here with me while my pop's away and he's a bigger tyrant than my pop. why, if he knew that i was even thinkin' about gettin' married, he'd cut me out of his will, kick me out of the house, and beat the hell out of me. so, in the meantime, why don't we just have some fun, you little barbie doll. wait--wait a minute, lamont, now. you know what you said about not gettin' any younger? yeah.

u still got it... she's all yours, brother. oh, no. no, wait a minute. i couldn't do that-- take my best friend's only son's girl away. hey, don't you see, grady? she prefers you to me, man. look, i told her you were my godfather. now to her, you're a godfather image. to her, you're marlon brando. oh, i know that. but you see, uh, i'm steppin' aside. with humphrey bogart? is this another example? well, yeah. i mean, but this is a much better one. i mean, now listen to this. now see, in this one i'll be humphrey bogart and you'll be paul henreid. and i'll step aside so you can walk away in the fog with ingrid bergman. i can't allow you to do that, grady. now, wait a minute. what do you mean? i mean, i just think that's the best thing. we've got to do it that way.
just think of that. 40 years older. and by the time she's 50, i'll be 90. and who knows if i'll still have it. the fact is, grady, i don't want her. you don't? no. i don't want a reject. well, you don't want her, and i don't want her. seems that way. oh, gee, i feel sorry for her. yeah. me, too. losing one of us was bad enough, but-- losing both. both: mmm, mmm, mmm. do you think that she might do something silly? like jump off a bridge? oh, i hope not. maybe she'll run away and join the wax. maybe. but there's one thing we gotta do, grady. we gotta tell her. yeah. we owe it to her to tell her. we owe her that much. [knock on door] if that's her now, we'll tell her. right. [knock on door] that's the least we can do.
hi, lamont. hi, judy. hi, grady. have you had your lunch yet? i fixed you vienna franks and tomato sauce. you wanna smell? uh, no, thanks. i have a cold. oh, i'm sorry to hear that. uh, judy? uh, before you go into the kitchen, uh, i wanna talk at you for a minute. just--just give me the pot. come over here for a minute. sit down. make yourself comfortable. i'll just put this over here. uh, judy... there's something i think you should know. me? now, you tell her. no, i think you should tell her. somebody tell me. oh, well, ok. i'll tell her. uh, here--judy... did you ever see a movie called lawrence of arabia? [shouting] would you stop with the movies and tell her? ok. all righty. ok. i--i'll tell her. it's--j-j-j-judy,
first, the good news. lamont is willin' to step aside so that i can marry you. and now the bad news. i can't marry you. i don't believe this. w-w-w-w--yeah. ye-ye-yeah, it's true. you see, his father, when he left, he put me in charge and he told me to look out after his only son. now--now, if i would leave and go off to get married now, so, this is really a bad time for me to get married. yeah. uh, and--and it's a bad time for me to get married 'cause it would i'd have to kick grady out on the street. and pop would never forgive me for that. right. so, see, actually, this is a bad time for either one of us to get married. either one of us. you know, maybe it's your sign. are you a scorpio? marriage? of all the conceited, egotistical things. a girl would have to be stone crazy to want either one of you chumps. you're a old fool.
you had with your girlfriend judy-- [coughs] it made me realize that i've still got it. and if i've still got it, i think i oughta flaunt it. so, what you gonna do, just flaunt it around the house in front of me? oh, no. i've invited a lady friend around. and you're going out. i mean, i hope you're not gonna sit around here and just watch us. grady, that's one sight i don't care to watch. hey, man. you know, but i thought of something funny. then we'd have the same situation all over again. oh, lord. i hope not. i don't think it'll happen. [knock on door] oh, hi there, uh, uh... dimples. hey. uh, this is the living room. and this is the sofa. this is my godson. he's cute.
