3:13 am
aha! what were you doing? uh, nothing. i was just going to step out and get a little fresh air. really? i thought you were waiting up for chrissy. oh, come on, janet, don't be ridiculous. were you? yes. you know what i think, jack? maybe you're a little jealous of your brother. me jealous? oh, come... i'm just worried about a friend. you can stop worrying. your friend is just doing your brother a favor. that's all. she's not interested in him.

( janet chuckles ) chrissy, you must remember some things. well, i remember that there was a lot of water and things were going round and round. you went to a laundromat? there's a fountain outside the ocean view plaza hotel. ( laughing ) chrissy... chrissy, have you been drinking? no.

3:19 am
my parents told me i was. that's terrible. they tried to be nice. i remember they used to take us to the beach. well, that sounds like fun. i hated it. bart buried me in the sand. mr. furley a lot of little kids bury each other in the sand. head first? and you really want to hear something? after my brother lost all of his baby teeth he used to steal mine so he'd get the money from the tooth fairy. while you were asleep? no, out of my mouth when i was awake. wasn't he a pistol? i don't feel so bad about growing up with lee. thanks a lot, mr. furley. i feel better... wait. aren't you going to fix our sink? i can't. i'm so depressed talking about my brother i've got to go lie down. look who i saw downstairs. oh, mr. furley, have you met jack's brother?
3:20 am
what's the matter with him? he's just, uh... he's allergic to brothers. well, i love mine. and i love this beautiful weather you're having. lee, it's been cloudy all morning. the sun's always shining when i'm near chrissy. which reminds me, are you busy tonight? yes, she is. she's having dinner with me. i am? we're going to chez robaire. a quiet little dinner, just the two of us, remember? that's a shame. tonight's my last night in town. i was hoping... you can't win them all. sometimes you just... me? you want to take me to dinner? you are my brother. we haven't had a chance to talk in a long time. you two go out, and i'll stay home. we insist you come with us, right, jack? yes... no! you don't want chrissy to come? no, i don't want to go with you. then it's just chrissy and me. no, wait. you'll come with us? yes... no... yes. i'll pick you up at 7:00. wait, wait, wait.
3:21 am
how's it going, jack? i don't want to talk about it. he's mad at his brother again. hey, what happened? i don't know how he did it but somehow he managed to invite himself out to dinner with chrissy and me. oh, no kidding? i sure wouldn't want to be in your brother's shoes. what? oh, come on, jack. where's the one place that nobody can compete with you? my bedroom? where are you going tonight? a restaurant? a french restaurant. oh, that's even better. isn't that your specialty, french cuisine? your brother can't compete with you there. janet, i see what you mean. jack, listen, you should be a good sport about it, okay? don't you embarrass your brother too much. no, i'll try not to.
3:22 am
jack, this is a very fancy place. oh, yes. chez robaire is one of the finest restaurants in the city. they know me here. good evening. robaire, how are you this evening? my name is maurice. ah, yes, maurice. yes. well, when you see robaire, please give him my best. we would like a quiet table for trois somewhere away from the kitchen if you please? have you a reservation? uh... actually no. then i'm afraid i cannot help you. we are completely booked this evening. um, sir... excuse me, excuse me. are you quite certain? terribly sorry. it was a terrible misunderstanding. but of course, i have a table for you. merci. see, i was... it was a terrible misunderstanding. a table for three in a quiet corner, you said? jack: i said that. he didn't say that.
3:23 am
lee: chrissy. mademoiselle. thank you. monsieur. mais merci. monsieur. merci bien. uh... i can't read this menu. no, no, no, no. tut. it's in french. allow me. now then, let's start off with les fleurs de mer fumes. though un consomme germain aux crotons d'or sounds very interesting. i see you have the boudin blanc cinq valute. oui. that's wonderful, jack. oui, monsieur. permettez moi de vous dit que c'etes votre choix etait excellent. vous desirez quelque chose autre avant quelque?
3:24 am
mon frere, a dit qu'il ne c'est parler que la nouriture mais c'est surement ca facon dit a lui de faisez n'etais bien qu'il c'est vrai que nous americans ne sont pas doue pour les langues des etrangers, hm? merci, monsieur. excuse me. we'll have what he's having. boy, that was so good. it was delicious. thank you. my pleasure, chrissy. i'm just glad i was here to order for you. well, i picked the restaurant. true, and you almost got us a table. anyone care for dessert? oh, not for me. my waistline, you know. yes, i'll have the gateau chocolat s'il vous plait. i see you have tarte aux pomme a la normande. that's very tricky to make. you have to roll the dough away from you. see, that's the secret because if you knead the dough toward you it can be very messy...
3:25 am
3:26 am
3:27 am
that's all right. i'll be right back. it's hopeless, chrissy. whenever i'm around him, i just can't do anything right. oh, jack! see that? i'm just a klutz. i thought at least here i could beat him. oh, jack, you're not a klutz. i mean, don't you see? it's no contest. well, don't rub it in. no, i mean, i would much rather spend an evening with you than with your brother. oh, sure.
3:28 am
brother lee were a cake he'd be all icing. but you're all cake with a lot of layers. i don't get it. what do you mean? you're real, he's not. oh, chrissy... but lee's a winner. remember that pittsburgh ballplayer willie star trek? . whatever. when willie steps up to home plate to hit that winning touchdown the crowd goes wild. well, i don't blame them. it's because willie is doing it for the team and for them. with your brother, he's just doing it for himself to say, "look how good i am." i mean, really, i feel kind of sorry for him. you feel sorry for lee? yeah. he's so predictable. chrissy, but you know...
3:29 am
when he comes back he'll say, "don't worry about the suit. i have another one at home just like it." oh, lee, i'm really sorry. look, don't worry about the suit. i've got another one at home just like it. what's so funny? nothing. suddenly i feel really good about myself. i'm really sorry about spilling... i just can't imagine going through life doing things like that. i know something else you can't do. what's that? you can't hit a touchdown with a baseball bat... oh, jack!

3:40 am
the night at tommy's house i thought this would be a good time to... - oh, so do i. i'll just slip out of these old clothes and mix us a couple of drinks... - let me finish jeffrey. i want to tell you about my surprise. - you little devil, you. what is it? - white mice. - white mi - no, a real mouse. you see david's been pestering me for weeks to get him one. - oh ann, you can't be serious. i know you. a little rodent running around loose you'd be a nervous wreck. - jeffrey, it's something david
