AS LONG AS IT'S NOT ANOTHER RESTAURANT, I DON'T CARE WHO MOVES IN THERE YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD BE GOOD? A REALLY NICE DRESS SHOP THAT'S A TERRIBLE IDEA WHY? WE'D SPEND ALL MONEY THERE I DON'T THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A DRESS SHOP

THEY WERE LOADING IN BIG, HEAVY BOXES THIS MORNING MUCH TOO BIG FOR DRESSES WHAT KIND OF STORE SELLS BIG, HEAVY THINGS? MAYBE IT'S A HEALTH CLUB OH, THAT'S NOT GOOD WHY NOT? IT MIGHT DO YOU SOME GOOD TO JOIN A HEALTH CLUB

BRADSHAW LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE GETTING A NEW NEIGHBOR YES, I KNOW SARA, YOU'RE EARLY I HAD A FREE PERIOD, SO I THOUGHT I'D COME DOWN AND SEE WHAT YOU WERE UP TO

SO WHAT IS IT? SARA AND I ARE GOING TOGETHER THAT'S WONDERFUL BUT I THINK WE ALREADY KNEW THAT YOU DID? IT'S PRETTY OBVIOUS FROM THE WAY YOU TWO BEHAVE IT IS? IT IS

BUT IT'S NICE I DON'T LIKE TO BREAK UP THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION, BUT WE ALL HAVE WORK TO DO WHERE'S YOUR ROMANTIC NATURE, VICTOR? I AM ROMANTIC BUT I ALSO HAVE A BUSINESS TO RUN THAT WASN'T SO BAD, WAS IT? NO, BUT IT'S NOT LIKE WE HAD TO TELL THEM ANYTHING

IT'LL BE GOOD PRACTICE FOR WHEN WE TELL OUR PARENTS YOU'RE GOING TO TELL YOUR PARENTS? OF COURSE AREN'T YOU GOING TO TELL YOURS? WHAT FOR? WELL, DON'T YOU WANT THEM TO KNOW? SURE, BUT IT'S NOT LIKE I HAVE TO ASK THEIR PERMISSION I MEAN, WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS LIKE THIS, I PRETTY MUCH MAKE MY OWN DECISIONS WELL, THIS IS VERY SPECIAL TO ME

AND I WANT MY PARENTS TO SHARE IN IT HENRY, I NEED YOU BE RIGHT THERE, MR BRADSHAW I KNOW WHAT

COME TO DINNER AT MY HOUSE ON THURSDAY WE'LL TELL THEM THEN BUT CAN'T WE WAIT? WON'T YOU DO THIS FOR ME? PLEASE OH, OK, I'LL DD IT SET IT UP

ALL RIGHT SEE YOU LATER BYE, EVERYBODY BYE, SARA EDWARD, PLEASE USE THE SPOON

YOU'LL NEVER GUESS WHO CAME BY THE UNIVERSITY TODAY YOU'RE RIGHT, SO TELL ME GRACE FANG JERRY'S BEING TRANSFERRED BACK HERE, AND SHE'S LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO LIVE BE NICE TO SEE THEM AGAIN

YOU REMEMBER THE FANGS, DON'T YOU? AND THEIR DAUGHTER KAREN? IS SHE GOOD LOOKING? I THINK SHE MIGHT BE A LITTLE OLD FOR YOU, EDWARD THAT'S OK I LIKE OLDER WOMEN YOU TWO USED TO PLAY TOGETHER WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG HERE'S A PICTURE

VERY PRETTY ISN'T SHE? AND VERY BRIGHT SHE'S GOING TO MIT NEXT YEAR WHOA, SHE'S A BABE THAT'S ENOUGH, EDWARD

SIT DOWN REMEMBER HOW WE USED TO JOKE ABOUT THE TWO OF THEM GETTING MARRIED SOME DAY IF HENRY DOESN'T WANT TO MARRY HER, I WILL SHE'S ALL YOURS I ALREADY GOT A GIRLFRIEND

OUTSTANDING BESIDES I DON'T EVEN KNOW HER YOU'LL GET YOUR CHANCE THURSDAY NIGHT I'VE INVITED THE FANGS FOR DINNER SORRY, I WON'T BE HERE

I'M HAVING DINNER AT SARA'S ON THURSDAY OH, I'M SURE YOU CAN GET OUT OF IT JUST TELL THEM THAT THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT WELL, SO IS THIS SARA SET THIS WHOLE THING UP, SO THAT WE CAN TELL OUR PARENTS THAT SHE AND I ARE GOING TOGETHER

OH? THIS SOUNDS SERIOUS I ASSUME THAT YOU'VE GIVEN THIS CONSIDERABLE THOUGHT? YEAH, SURE AND THE FACT THAT SHE'S NOT CHINESE WHAT'S THAT GOT TO DO WITH IT? YOUR MOTHER AND I ALWAYS ASSUMED THAT YOU WOULD MARRY A CHINESE GIRL WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT MARRIAGE? WE'RE JUST GOING TOGETHER

HAVE YOU MET HER PARENTS? YES, AND THEY SEEM LIKE VERY NICE PEOPLE I'M SURE THEY ARE AND THIS DINNER IS TO ANNOUNCE THE FACT THAT YOU'RE GOING TOGETHER YES THEN I WOULD BE PREPARED IF I WERE YOU

FOR WHAT? FOR DISAPPOINTMENT I DON'T UNDERSTAND MAYBE THIS IS NOT THE TIME THIS IS EXACTLY THE TIME HERE'S WHAT I THINK WILL HAPPEN

THEY WILL BOTH BE VERY NICE THEY WILL TALK TO YOU ABOUT CHINESE FOOD THEN THEY WILL TALK TO YOU ABOUT CHINA THEN THEY WILL ASK YOU NOT TO GO WITH THEIR DAUGHTER NO, THEY WON'T

THEY WILL PROBABLY SAY THAT YOU'RE BOTH TOO YOUNG BUT THAT'S SILLY WE'RE BOTH 17 THAT'S WHAT THEY WILL SAY BUT WHAT THEY WILL MEAN IS THEY DON'T WANT YOU INVOLVED WITH SARA BECAUSE YOU ARE CHINESE

I THINK YOU'RE WRONG THE GRAYSONS AREN'T LIKE THAT PERHAPS I HOPE YOU'RE RIGHT SO DID YOU FIND OUT? WELL, I STARTED TALKING TO THE FOREMAN OF THE CREW

AND YOU FOUND OUT WHAT IT'S GOING TO BE YES, A LAUNDROMAT A LAUNDROMAT? GOOD! I CAN BRING MY CLOTHES IN THE MORNING AND WASH THEM WHILE I'M WORKING HERE DID YOU HEAR, MR BRADSHAW

IT'S GOING TO BE A LAUNDROMAT, NEXT DOOR A LAUNDROMAT? NOT GOOD WHY NOT? THEY'LL BE COMING IN HERE ALL THE TIME ASKING FOR CHANGE FOR THE MACHINES AND NEVER BUYING ANYTHING A PLACE LIKE THAT IS GOING TO BE NOTHING BUT A NUISANCE YOU'LL SEE

NO WATER! OH, NOW WHAT? JAMAL, SEE WHAT IS WRONG BACK THERE [new age music] COULD YOU CHANGE THIS FOR ME? CERTAINLY YOU WOULDN'T HAPPEN TO KNOW THE NUMBER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER AND POWER, WOULD YOU? IT'S IN THE BOOK BY THE PHONE WHY DO YOU NEED TO CALL WATER AND POWER? WE'RE TRYING TO CONNECT UP THE WASHERS NEXT DOOR AND– THE LAUNDROMAT? UH HUH

MY FOREMAN WENT OUT TO TURN OFF THE MAIN VALVE, BUT IT DIDN'T WORK THE WATER'S STILL COMING OUT OH, IT WORKED ALL RIGHT HE TURNED OFF MY WATER OH, NO

WHAT A MESS SORRY I HAVEN'T EVEN INTRODUCED MYSELF LINDA BLASKO VICTOR BRADSHAW

I GUESS WE'LL BE SEEING A LOT OF EACH OTHER I WOULDN'T BE A BIT SURPRISED NOW THAT I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, I DON'T NEED TO MAKE THAT CALL DO YOU WANT YOUR CHANGE BACK? NO, YOU CAN KEEP IT FOR THE MACHINES WHAT A NICE NEIGHBOR

I LIKE THIS PLACE I'M REALLY GLAD I'M NEXT DOOR [new age music] WHAT DID I TELL YOU? ALREADY ASKING FOR CHANGE DON'T BE SO QUICK TO JUDGE SHE LOOKS NICE

AH, SHE LOOKS LIKE A GYPSY SHE DOES NOT SHE LOOKS LIKE WHAT THEY USED TO CALL A HIPPIE SAME THING NARRATOR: IRMA SCHAEFFER SPENT THE FIRST 20 YEARS OF HER LIFE IN THE PHILIPPINES

RICHARD SCHAEFFER GREW UP IN A MEXICAN-AMERICAN NEIGHBORHOOD THEY MET EACH OTHER AT WORK AND HE ASKED HER FOR A DATE SO I WENT TO PICK HER UP AND I WAS KIND OF SHOCKED TO SEE SOMEONE THERE OTHER THAN YOU

I GO WHO'S THAT IT'S MY NIECE FROM THE PHILIPPINES THAT WAS TRADITION THAT YOU JUST DON'T GO OUT WITH A MAN WITHOUT CHAPERONE THAT'D BE REGARDLESS OF HOW OLD YOU ARE IN MEXICAN CULTURE, IN MEXICO, THEY DO HAVE CHAPERONES, BUT THIS WAS THE UNITED STATES

AND I WAS AN AMERICAN SO I TOLD HIM THE PROPER WAY OF DOING THIS COURTSHIP IS YOU HAD TO COME OVER TO MY HOUSE, SHOW YOURSELF TO MY PARENTS, AND TALK TO THEM A LITTLE BIT SO ONE DAY WE AGREED ON GOING TO MEET HER FAMILY AND I BROUGHT MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER AND SHE BROUGHT HER WHOLE FAMILY, WHICH WAS ABOUT 20 PEOPLE SITTING IN THE LIVING ROOM

AT FIRST, MAYBE THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND ME AND MY CULTURE BUT EVENTUALLY, I WON THEM OVER AND ACTUALLY THEY DEARLY LOVED HIM AND THEY ALWAYS ASK HOW YOU TREATING YOUR HUSBAND? ARE YOU TAKING CARE OF HIM? IT WORKED OUT NARRATOR: DAVID FREEMAN WAS A PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER, TEACHING ENGLISH IN IVORY COAST WHEN HE MET AND MARRIED KATI

IN THE BEGINNING, MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER WERE NOT IN AGREEMENT TO THE MARRIAGE AND I THINK PART OF THE REASON WAS OBVIOUSLY THE RACIAL QUESTION [speaking french] NARRATOR: ADJUSTMENTS ARE PART OF ANY NEW MARRIAGE, BUT IN THESE TWO CASES, RICHARD AND IRMA AND DAVID AND CUSTODY WERE BLENDING DIFFERENT CULTURES AS WELL AS PERSONALITIES ONE OF THE CULTURAL PROBLEMS THAT WE HAD TO OVERCOME WAS THE PROBLEM OF INTERPRETING BODY LANGUAGE IN IVORY COAST, AT LEAST IN HER TRIBE, WHEN YOU GIVE SOMETHING TO SOMEBODY– WELL, GO AHEAD AND GIVE ME SOMETHING

HMM OK SO YOU DO IT WITH THIS MOVEMENT OF THE HAND AND THEN A "HMM" I INTERPRETED THAT AS HER BEING ANGRY AT ME THE MOST DIFFICULT CULTURAL ISSUES THAT I HAD TO DEAL WITH, AS FAR AS OUR MARRIAGE, WAS PROBABLY GETTING USED TO THE TIGHT FILIPINO FAMILY UNIT

THE FAMILY GOES EVERYWHERE TOGETHER I HAD TO TELL HER IS ANY OTHER WAY THAT WE CAN DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM? I FELT LIKE THERE WASN'T ENOUGH ROOM FOR US TO GROW TOGETHER ANOTHER ONE OF THE CROSS CULTURAL PROBLEMS THAT WE HAD HAD TO DO WITH SILENCE AFRICANS ARE SURROUNDED BY NOISE, BY SOUND, BY PEOPLE TALKING CONSTANTLY AND IN THE EARLIER YEARS OF OUR MARRIAGE, I WOULD COME HOME AND I WOULD JUST BE SILENT, BECAUSE I WAS TIRED OF TEACHING AND TALKING

THAT WAS FRIGHTENING TO ME SO LATER ON, I TOLD HIM, LOOK IF YOU COME, EVEN YOU TIRED, TAKE A LITTLE BIT, 10 MINUTES TO TALK TO ME OTHERWISE, IT CAN'T WORK NARRATOR: THROUGH THE YEARS, THESE AND OTHER ISSUES HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH AN APPRECIATION FOR THEIR CULTURAL DIFFERENCES AND THE RICHNESS IT HAS BROUGHT TO THEIR LIVES

SURE, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE YOUR FIGHTS YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE YOUR ARGUMENTS YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE YOUR GOOD TIMES BUT IT'S THE EMPHASIS ON FAMILY FOR OUR CHILDREN, THEY HAVE A RICHNESS THAT THEY CAN REACH INTO

MAYBE AT THE POINT IN LIFE THAT THEY'RE READY TO GET MARRIED, I HAVE THE SAME CONCERN AS MY FOLKS DID, THAT REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE, I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THEY'RE BEING TREATED WELL, JUST LIKE MY HUSBAND IS TO ME I SEE THEY'RE REPAINTING THE LINES IN THE PARKING LOT THEY'RE DOING WHAT? REARRANGING THE SPACES, MAKING THEM DIAGONAL RATHER THAN STRAIGHT WHO'S DOING THAT? IT LOOKS LIKE TWO OF THE WORKERS FROM NEXT DOOR THE GYPSY LADY! SHE'S NO GYPSY

NO, SHE'S A THIEF TAKING SOME OF MY PARKING SPACES AWAY FROM ME IF I HAVE FEWER SPACES, I END UP WITH FEWER CUSTOMERS CAN SHE DO THAT? YOU'RE GOING HAVE TO CHECK THE LEASE TO FIND OUT FOR SURE SARA, PASS SOME MORE POTATOES TO HENRY

THINK THE COWBOYS'LL WIN THE SUPER BOWL THIS YEAR? GOSH, I HOPE NOT I HATE THE COWBOYS HENRY! OH, WE'RE ARE ALL COWBOYS FANS IN THIS FAMILY SORRY DO YOU PLAY ANY SPORTS? A LITTLE HOCKEY

OH, ISN'T THAT AN AWFULLY VIOLENT GAME? A LOT OF PEOPLE MAKE THAT MISTAKE BUT IT'S ACTUALLY A GAME OF FINESSE YOU HAVE TO BE A REALLY GOOD SKATER, SO YOU CAN MOVE THE PUCK AROUND AND SCORE BUT THERE IS SOME ROUGH PLAY, ISN'T THERE? WELL, MAYBE A LITTLE HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH TO EAT, HENRY? YES, THANKS

WE THOUGHT ABOUT HAVING CHINESE BUT GAIL THOUGHT YOU MIGHT BE TIRED OF ALL THAT CHOP SUEY AND EGG FOO YOUNG AND WOULD LIKE SOME GOOD OLD AMERICAN STEAK AND POTATOES ACTUALLY, WE NEVER EAT CHOP SUEY OR EGG FOO YOUNG THEY WERE INVENTED FOR AMERICANS BUT I THOUGHT– WELL, WHENEVER WE GO OUT FOR CHINESE, THEY'RE ALWAYS ON THE MENU

I KNOW THEY HAVE TO DO IT FOR THE AMERICAN BUSINESS WELL, YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY WELL, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE WERE IN HONG KONG LAST YEAR, WE WENT TO A REAL CHINESE RESTAURANT I THINK WE WERE THE ONLY WHITE PEOPLE IN THE WHOLE RESTAURANT

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY EGG FOO YOUNG ON THAT MENU EITHER REMEMBER, GAIL? OH, DON'T REMIND ME WE ORDERED FISH AND THEY SERVED IT WITH THE HEAD STILL ON IT UGH

THE HEAD'S THE BEST PART WE ESPECIALLY LIKE THE CHEEK OH! WE HAVE A SAYING WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD IT'S GOT FOUR LEGS, AND IT ISN'T A TABLE, WE EAT IT NOW? NOW WHAT? HENRY, MAYBE WE SHOULD– IT'S OK

I DON'T MIND SARA AND I ARE GOING TOGETHER WELL, THIS IS A SURPRISE SARA THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW, DIDN'T YOU, SARA? WOULDN'T IT BE WISER TO WAIT A BIT? FOR WHAT? TO PERHAPS GIVE THIS A LITTLE MORE THOUGHT YOU SEE, HENRY, WE HAVE SO MANY PLANS FOR OUR DAUGHTER

WELL, JUST AS I'M SURE THAT YOUR PARENTS DO FOR YOU ARE YOU SAYING YOU DON'T WANT US TO BE TOGETHER? NO! WE'RE JUST ASKING YOU TO PUT IT OFF FOR A LITTLE WHILE YOU DON'T APPROVE OF ME I WOULDN'T PUT IT LIKE THAT WELL, I WOULD

EXCUSE ME I THINK I'D BETTER LEAVE WHAT AM I GOING TO DO, JAMAL? EVERY TIME I CALL HER, SHE HANGS UP THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM I KNOW

I'M NOT SURE YOU DO KNOW I THINK MAYBE YOU ARE THE PROBLEM THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE YOU'RE ASKING SARA TO CHOOSE BETWEEN HER FAMILY AND YOU ALL I'M ASKING HER TO DO IS SEE MY SIDE

SHE HAD TO HAVE SEEN HOW HER MOTHER AND FATHER TREATED ME DID THEY COME RIGHT OUT AND SAY THEY DO NOT APPROVE OF YOU? NOT IN SO MANY WORDS, BUT THEY HINTED PRETTY STRONGLY AND YOU THINK IT'S BECAUSE YOU ARE CHINESE? WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE? IT COULD BE FOR ANY NUMBER OF REASONS MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE A GOOFBALL OR YOUR HAIR IS TOO LONG OR MAYBE THEY THINK YOU'RE AN ILL-MANNERED ADOLESCENT YOU THINK I'M A GOOFBALL? I DO

HOW DO YOUR PARENTS FEEL ABOUT IT? THEY'D BE A LOT HAPPIER IF SARA WERE CHINESE IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE GETTING IT FROM BOTH SIDES I REMEMBER WHEN I ASKED JIHAN'S PARENTS FOR PERMISSION FOR US TO MARRY AND THEY GAVE US ALL SORTS OF REASONS TO WAIT WHAT THEY WERE REALLY TRYING TO SAY WAS THEY DIDN'T WANT ME TO STEAL THEIR DAUGHTER AWAY FROM THEM

BUT I DON'T WANT TO STEAL SARA THEN WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL HER PARENTS THAT? YOU MAKE IT SOUND SO SIMPLE IT IS JUST GO OVER AND KNOCK ON THEIR DOOR NO, WAIT! I HAVE A BETTER IDEA

UH OH YOU GET YOU PARENTS TOGETHER WITH SARA'S MOTHER AND FATHER AND ALL OF YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR PROBLEM YOU CALL THAT SIMPLE? IT WILL BE VERY DRAMATIC JUST LIKE THE END OF ROMEO AND JULIET

BUT ROMEO AND JULIET WERE ALREADY DEAD WHEN THEIR PARENTS GOT TOGETHER NOT IMPORTANT WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS HOW YOU GET THEM TO MEET IT WILL HAVE TO BE VERY CLEVER, SOMETHING THAT WILL CATCH THEIR INTEREST YOU MEAN LIKE SENDING A TELEGRAM? I LIKE THAT IDEA

YOU CAN'T IGNORE A TELEGRAM WHAT, YOU'RE GOING TO SEND A TELEGRAM TO SARA'S HOUSE? AND ONE TO YOUR PARENTS TOO AND WHAT WILL YOU SAY IN IT? COME TO, COME TO– WHERE? HERE! YES! COME TO CROSSROADS CAFE AND WHAT? WHY? FOR ROSA RIVERA'S FAMOUS CHILE VERDE DON'T BE SILLY

BECAUSE YOU WON THE LOTTERY AND YOU CALLED ME SILLY THAT WOULD CERTAINLY GET THEM HERE, BUT WHAT WOULD THEY DO WHEN THEY FIND OUT THERE IS NO LOTTERY THEY'D KILL ME, THAT'S WHAT WE'LL FIX IT SO THEY MEET BY ACCIDENT

SURE, AT A SUPERMARKET OR A MALL NO, TOO MANY PEOPLE WE HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO GET HENRY'S FAMILY OVER TO SARA'S HOUSE AND THEN– WHAT, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE MY ENTIRE FAMILY HANGING AROUND OUTSIDE SARA'S HOUSE? SOMETHING LIKE THAT BEAUTIFUL

AND WHEN SARA AND HER PARENTS FINALLY COME OUT, HENRY'S FATHER SAYS OH, WHAT A COINCIDENCE I JUST HAPPENED TO BE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD MAYBE USE DIFFERENT WORDS THIS IS CRAZY WHY NOT JUST ASK THEM TO COME TO THE CAFE BECAUSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH THEM? THAT MIGHT WORK

BUT WHEN I GET THEM HERE, WHAT WILL I SAY? HEY! WE CAN'T DO EVERYTHING FOR YOU NOW WHAT? THIS IS THE LAST STRAW! DID YOU JUST LOSE POWER? LOOK AROUND SEE IF YOU NOTICE ANYTHING DIFFERENT RIGHT YOU'RE OUT

(YELLING) TURN THAT SWITCH BACK ON! GOTCHA! OK, NOW, TRY THE SWITCH NEXT TO IT SORRY ABOUT THAT WE'RE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT GOES WHERE [new age music] DO YOU BELIEVE THAT WOMAN? [new age music] I LIKE LANGUAGE AND THE WAY WE USE IT TO SHARE THOUGHTS AND IDEAS FOR EXAMPLE, IN THIS EPISODE, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT LIKES AND DISLIKES

IS SHE GOOD-LOOKING? I THINK SHE MIGHT BE LITTLE OLD FOR YOU, EDWARD THAT'S OK I LIKE OLDER WOMEN I SEE YOU'RE FINALLY GETTING A NEW NEIGHBOR YOU MEAN THE PLACE NEXT DOOR

A GOOD THING I DON'T LIKE A VACANT BUILDING IT MAKES THE WHOLE PLACE LOOK SHABBY [slurping sounds] [groaning] [fire crackling] [thunder] [rain patter] WE USE "LIKE" AND "DON'T LIKE" TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE LIKE TO DO, AS WELL AS WHAT WE LIKE OH, THAT'S NOT GOOD

WHY NOT? MIGHT DO YOU SOME GOOD TO JOIN A HEALTH CLUB ALL DAY LONG, THERE'LL BE BANGING AND CLANKING AND LOUD MUSIC OUR CUSTOMERS LIKE TO EAT IN PEACE AND QUIET [train whoosh] HEY, WAIT FOR ME HEY, HEY, HEY, WHAT'S– OH, EXCUSE ME

OOF, OOF, OOF HEY, WATCH IT AY! I DON'T LIKE MAKING YOU LATE FOR THE REST OF THE STORY SO SHALL WE GO? WHAT DO YOU THINK? I THINK YOU BETTER GET OUT THERE BEFORE THEY DECIDE TO LEAVE HI

HELLO HI DID EVERYBODY GET COFFEE OR TEA OR SOMETHING? HENRY, WHY ARE WE ALL HERE? OH, RIGHT WELL, THE REASON I ASKED YOU HERE IS– WELL, SARA AND I THOUGHT– IS THIS ABOUT THE DINNER LAST WEEK? YES ACTUALLY, I WANTED TO APOLOGIZE FOR HOW I ACTED THAT NIGHT

I WAS VERY RUDE ALL WE ASKED YOU TO DO WAS PUT OFF THIS "GOING TOGETHER" GIVE US A CHANCE TO GET USED TO THE IDEA I KNOW, BUT THAT NIGHT, I READ SOMETHING ELSE INTO IT YOU THOUGHT WE WERE PREJUDICED

IT SEEMED THAT WAY TO ME, YES WELL, YOU MADE A MISTAKE JUST A MINUTE ARE YOU SURE HE WAS ALL THAT WRONG? MOM, PLEASE ARE YOU SAYING THAT HENRY BEING CHINESE HAD NO BEARING ON YOU ASKING HIM TO WAIT

NONE, WHATSOEVER LET ME ASK YOU THAT QUESTION WOULDN'T YOU RATHER HENRY MARRY A CHINESE GIRL THAN SARA? DAD! WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT MARRIAGE? WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET MARRIED! NATURALLY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO US BUT– OF COURSE, THAT WAS BEFORE WE MET SARA WELL, THERE YOU ARE

I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH HENRY BEING OF A DIFFERENT CULTURE THAT'S NOT ENTIRELY TRUE, DAD SARA, YOUR FATHER WAS JUST UPSET THIS ISN'T WORKING ALL I WANTED WAS TO TELL EVERYONE I WAS SORRY SO THAT THINGS COULD BE LIKE THEY WERE BEFORE

HENRY, I'M SORRY WHEN I SET UP THE DINNER, IT NEVER OCCURRED TO ME THAT IT MIGHT GET THIS CRAZY ME NEITHER ALL I WANTED WAS TO BE WITH YOU THAT'S ALL I WANT NOW

ME TOO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT YOU'RE ASKING HENRY AND SARA TO WAIT A BIT, RIGHT? FOR WHAT? BEFORE YOU DO SOMETHING YOU KNOW OH, RIGHT

YOU MEAN LIKE SOMETHING STUPID LOOK WE LOVE YOU AND WE RESPECT YOU BUT WE'RE BOTH OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING AND WE'RE BOTH OLD ENOUGH TO MAKE SOME OF OUR OWN DECISIONS

EVERY 17-YEAR-OLD IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD THOUGHT THEY KNEW MORE THAN THEIR PARENTS I THINK YOU FORGOT THAT WE WERE 17 ONCE OURSELVES OR MAYBE YOU FORGOT HENRY, THAT'S NO WAY TO TALK TO MR GRAYSON

I DON'T MEAN TO INSULT YOU, ANY OF YOU YOU'RE TOO IMPORTANT TO ME WE KNOW YOU SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY THAN WE DO AND WE DON'T EXPECT TO CHANGE A WHOLE LOT, THOUGH IT SURE WOULD MAKE OUR LIVES A LOT EASIER KIDS

THEY MAKE EVERYTHING SOUND SO SIMPLE MAYBE IT IS– FOR THEM MAYBE WE'RE THE ONES WHO MAKE IT SO COMPLICATED I GUESS WE'LL JUST HAVE TO TRUST THEM I THINK YOU'RE RIGHT

[new age music] VICTOR NOW WHAT? I CAME TO TELL YOU HOW REALLY, REALLY SORRY I AM ABOUT ALL THE TROUBLE I'VE CAUSED YOU, GETTING MY PLACE STARTED UP BUT I GUESS I DON'T HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU OPEN A BUSINESS I BET YOU HAVE GOT SOME REAL SCARY STORIES TUCKED AWAY IN THERE YOU GOT SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND

I GUESS YOU NOTICED THAT I GOT TIRED OF WAITING FOR THE OWNER OF THIS COMPLEX TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE LACK OF PARKING SPACES? I NOTICED SO WHAT I DID WAS ASK A FRIEND WHO'S A MOTION STUDIES PERSON IF SHE COULD COME UP WITH A BETTER WAY TO UTILIZE THE PARKING AREA BY HAVING THE CARS PARKED ON AN ANGLE, SHE WAS ABLE TO GET SIX MORE PARKING SPACES FOR EACH OF US SIX MORE? RIGHT! ALSO, I HAD THIS IDEA– I HOPE YOU DON'T THINK I'M BE PUSHY ABOUT WHAT? WELL, I THOUGHT THAT MAYBE I PUT UP SOME ADVERTISEMENTS IN THE LAUNDROMAT, TELLING MY CUSTOMERS THAT THEY SHOULD COME OVER HERE FOR A SNACK, WHILE THEY'RE WAITING FOR THEIR CLOTHES TO FINISH

SIT HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE LET'S TALK OH, NOT AGAIN NOT TO WORRY

IT'S JUST MY NEIGHBOR THEY'LL HAVE IT FIXED IN NO TIME
