#11.04 : Leçon à domicile

Eric et les jumeaux débutent l'école à la maison aujourd'hui. Il faut d'abord établir les règles... et acheter des hamsters ! De son côté, Lucy est très intriguée par l'attitude de son père ces derniers temps. Elle pense qu'il lui cache quelque chose de grave et, pour en avoir le coeur net, elle décide d'aller fouiller un peu chez ses parents. Elle met la main sur un shampoing hors de prix et en conclut que son père pourrait avoir une liaison avec Mademoiselle Margo, l'institutrice des jumeaux. Kevin n'adhère pas à cette conclusion et conseille à sa femme d'arrêter ses investigations. Mais il change vite d'avis après une discussion très étrange avec Eric. Il décide à son tour d'enquêter et d'aller voir Stanley, le SDF que le révérend Camden avait conseillé le jour de son passage à l'hôpital.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Eric: So starting today, we're going to have school right here at home.

Sam: Is that legal?

Eric: Legal?

David: We don't wanna to go to jail.

Eric: Oh, we won't go to jail. Promise.

David: Ax Kevin. He would know.

Sam: Yeah, he would know. And Kevin says jail stinks. Ax him.

Eric: Yeah I'm sure jail does stink. And by the way, it's not ax, it's not a-x. it's ask, a-s-k. And that's just one of the things I can reach you. Lots of children are home schooled. It's perfectly legal. You're not going to get into any trouble. We're just going to go down to the Board of Education and pick up some stuff and then we'll be all set.

Sam: Does mom know about this?

David: Yeah, does Mom know? If Mom doesn't know maybe we will go to jail... especially you.

Eric: There's going to be no jail time. No jail... promise. So this week we'll have school at home. And then if you like it, if we all like it, if the three of us men like it... we'll tell mom when she gets home. It'll be a big surprise.

Sam: Mom does not like big surprises.

David: I do. Let's do it.

Sam: Let's don't do it.

David: What about Lucy and Kevin? What if they tell mom?

Eric: We're not going to tell Lucy or Kevin... or anyone.

Sam: I don't like secrets. I don't want to do school at home.

Eric: Is it... is... it that it's scary? Sometimes doing something new... seems a little scary.

David: I'm not scared.

Sam: Yes you are.

David: No I'm not.

Sam: I am.

Eric: Well sometimes scared can feel just the same in your stomach as... excited. yeah, so maybe you're just excited.

Sam: No.

Eric: Well... maybe this will get you excited. You're going to like this. There's no homework.

David: No homework?

Eric: No homework. You do all the work at school and you have all afternoon to play. All night to play. It's going to be great. We'll have more time to be with each other.

Sam: But I like homework.

David: I don't. There's a hamster at school. The real one. So can we have a hamster at this fake school?

Eric: It's not a fake school. It's school at home but... I don't see why we couldn't get a hamster.

Sam: Mom said we can't have a hamster.

Eric: Yeah but she doesn't know that the hamsters will be part of the home school. Which is a secret. So... if she finds out that you love having school at home... of course your mom will let you have a hamster.

David: Can we keep it in our room?

Eric: Ah... we might have to keep it in the classroom.

David: Which room is the classroom?

Eric: Well, since I have to do my work and be the teacher, I thought we'd have school down at the church. Maybe in one of the Sunday school rooms? And who knows, maybe eventually we could have the classroom in Ruthie's room upstairs.

Sam: Mom says we can't go up there. She says Ruthie is coming back.

David: I think Dad's point is Mom's not here.

Eric: Yeah, but when she gets here... then we'll tell her. We're not going to keep this secret forever. No, no. It's just a... secret for... right now. Just this week. It's a... one-week-only secret.

Sam: Is this a secret or a lie?

Eric: It's... a secret.

David: And it's legal?

Eric: Yeah it's legal.

Camden's House

Lucy: (Knock on door) What are you doing here?

Kevin: What are you doing here?

Lucy: Well, I asked you first.

Kevin: Looking for you.

Lucy: Well, I was looking for some fruit cocktail.

Kevin: Why?

Lucy: Because I felt like some fruit cocktail.

Kevin: We have fruit cocktail at home.

Lucy: Oh! I didn't know we had fruit cocktail at home. I thought we were out so I just came over here for some fruit cocktail.

Kevin: No you didn't. You came over here to snoop around.

Lucy: No I didn't. why would you say that... that I'm snooping around?

Kevin: To find out what's going on with your dad. Whatever is going on with your dad is none of your business... unless he wants to tell you what's going on with him.

Lucy: Maybe. But it's my mom's business and she asked me to find out what's going on because... something is up. Something is clearly up.

Kevin: Your mom told you to find out what's going on?

Lucy: My Mom asked me to find out what's going on... yes.

Kevin: Why didn't she ask me to find out what's going on?

Lucy: I don't know. maybe because I was the one talking on the phone with her.

Kevin: And you told her he's acting weird? Or she thinks he's acting weird?

Lucy: What difference does it make?

Kevin: I know you're the one who told her he's acting weird.

Lucy: No, you don't.

Kevin: If she had noticed he was acting weird she would have asked me to find out. You told her he's acting weird.

Lucy: So?

Kevin: So you asked her if she wanted you to see what you could find out.

Lucy: Okay, Officer Kinkirk... you got me. I told Mom that Dad hasn't been acting himself lately. And it's not as if she hadn't noticed too. He's hiding something... clearly hiding something.

Kevin: He has the right to hide something if he wants to. And maybe he's just hiding something till your mom comes home so he can talk to her face to face. I hate to say it Luce but maybe it's something serious, maybe it's his health. Maybe his heart.

Lucy: No way, it's not. She talked to the doctor. He hasn't seen him and he's overdue for a check up. But... Mom's going to make him go when she gets home. So he's hiding something else. I... I know it's not right to snoop but... still...

Kevin: Still... it's not right.

Lucy: Well Mom gave me permission... practically.

Kevin: Go ahead, I'm staying out of it.

Elementary School - Board Office

Frank: Fill out the form. One for each child... and then we give you the lesson plans and the books, and that's about it. The teacher's just going to ax the boys a couple of questions make sure they're working on grade level.

Eric: Ax? The teacher is just going to ax the boys a question?

Frank: Yes. The teacher will ax them questions, read a little, do a little math.

Eric: To determine if the child is working at his or her grade level. Don't you mean ask? Ask them questions?

Frank: That's what I said... ax.

Eric: Ax. It's assssk.

Frank: Yeah... just fill out the forms.

Eric: Would you mind if I ax, I mean ask you a question, a personal question?

Frank: Shoot.

Eric: You work for the School board, you're an educated man. I assume and... so you don't hear the difference between ax and ask?

Frank: Ax and ax? Like an 'e' at the end of one of 'em?

Eric: No. Like one means to pose a question... and the other means a sharp object used to chop down trees. Are you by any chance home schooled?

Frank: Yeah, my mother was a hippy and she home-schooled me and then I went to Harvard. She's' a genius and a hippy. Ax her if you don't believe me.

Eric: I'm curious. What was your major?

Frank: Psychology.

Eric: Interesting. I wouldn't have figured you for a psychologist.

Frank: Are you kidding? I look just like Dr. Phil. That's why I got into it.

Eric: Well aside from the desire to help people of course.

Frank: I don't want to help people. I look the part... and I'm just good at it. For example. You've got a big problem you're not dealing with. You know how I know that? 'Cause you're all caught up in this little problem... of ax and ask. What's the difference and why does it bother you so much?

Eric: No reason.

Frank: Mmm... my guess, heart problems. Wife's out of town, a little lonely, a little guilty. Ah ha! the boy's teacher! You and the boys teacher equals home schooling that your wife has no idea about. Am I right?

Eric: What do you mean me and the boy's teacher? I'm not seeing my son's teacher.

Frank: No. You're avoiding here. So either something happened or you wanted something to happen and... or she wanted something to happen. Oh! Ms. Margo!

Eric: "Oh"... Ms Margo?

Frank: Don't ax.

Camden's House - Eric and Annie's Room

Lucy: Ah ha! Finally a clue! He is using a special shampoo, a shampoo made only for men.

Kevin: By special you mean expensive?

Lucy: Yeah as in very expensive. As in fifteen dollars expensive. My Mom does not pay fifteen dollars for a shampoo.

Kevin: How much should a person pay for shampoo?

Lucy: I don't know, but it's new. It looks like he's used it for maybe a week, maybe two weeks.

Kevin: Maybe I can get the police lab to do some testing to confirm the time line.

Lucy: You think?

Kevin: No.

Lucy: Kevin... two weeks. My dad bought fancy shampoo two weeks ago when my mom left.

Kevin: Wait a second. You buy your own shampoo. You have to know how much he paid for it.

Lucy: Well I have problem hair. You don't... you don't think he's... no, he wouldn't be. Maybe he's just... you know meeting with the boy's teacher and helping her with... Sometign for their class.

Kevin: What's the problem with your hair?

Lucy: Kevin, questioning me about my hair is not going to lead to anything. Help me here, pay attention.

Kevin: I use Savannah's shampoo.

Lucy: Good for you, your hair looks great. I'm going to tell my mom that she'd better call that flirty teacher and ask her what's going on.

Kevin: Your mom's going to call ms. Margo and ask her if she and your dad are getting together for some reason. Wouldn't it be simpler to call your mom first and ask her about the shampoo?

Lucy: It would... but what happens if she didn't?

Kevin: Probably nothing happens. Because your dad's not seeing ms. Margo or anyone else.

Lucy: He is washing his hair in special man shampoo for someone.

Kevin: And you wash your hair in...?

Lucy: I pay twelve dollars for my shampoo! Do you have a problem with that?

Kevin: You use twelve dollar shampoo... what's so crazy about your dad buying fifteen dollar shampoo? Or your mother buying your dad fifteen dollar shampoo?

Lucy: I know my people okay? My people are not expensive shampoo people.

Kevin: You're part of your people. Twelve dollars is a lot for shampoo.

Lucy: I only started paying twelve dollars for my shampoo when I... when I wanted to get pregnant. I was feeling sexy and happy and I splurged. And then I couldn't go back to the cheap stuff. Ohh... I am calling my mother right now and telling her she better get back here immediately!

Kevin: Hold on Luce. Let me talk to your dad before you call your mom about any of this okay? Maybe the only thing he's hiding is the fact that he bought fifteen dollar shampoo.

Lucy: Okay. Here's the plan. You're going to take my dad out for dinner and grill him. And I am going to make the boy's favorite thing... hot dogs... and see if they know anything..

Kevin: Let me just say it one more time for the record. I don't want anything to do with this investigation.

Lucy: Fine. just take him out to dinner okay? And I'm going to make the boy's hot dogs... and I am going to crack the case.

Camden's House

David: Thanks again, Dad.

Sam: I like the home school.

Eric: Good, good to hear. Now take the hamsters up to your room and dot' open the door to the cages. I'm not too sure about Happy.

Lucy: Hi, guys.

Sam/David: Hi Lucy.

Lucy: Wait. Are those hamsters?

Eric: Oh! Ah!

Lucy Oh my gosh.

Eric: Lucy, what are you doing here?

Lucy: I came to find the Church directory.

Eric: Really? The church directory. It's in the kitchen cabinet where we've kept it... your entire life.

Lucy: Oh. I just thought it might be up here somewhere.

Eric: No, you didn't. What's going on?

Lucy: Are you okay? You seem a little out of breath?

Eric: I just got home and I told the boys to go upstairs and then I heard them talking to someone in what I thought was an empty house.

Lucy: You didn't recognize my voice?

Eric: I didn't take the time to recognize your voice. I thought there was someone in the house talking to my sons and so I ran up to see who that might be. And I'd still like to know why you'ure snooping around.

Lucy: Dad, I'm not snooping around. I came up to find the church directory. Oh! I've been wanting to ask you I f you wanted to have dinner with Kevin. I thought I'd take the boys and let you have a little break.

Eric: No, I don't need a break. I'm fine. and... just don't come into the house when we're not home... if you don't mind.

Lucy: Okay... I... I don't mind. You want your key back?

Eric: Yes I do.

Lucy: Okay. I'll give it to you. But you know Kevin has one and we have extras.

Eric: I'll get the others later.

Lucy: Dad, I've had a key to the house since I was seven years old. This key in fact.

Eric: But you don't live in this house. You have your own house. Maybe it's time to give the key back.

Lucy: You don't want us to have a key to the house?

Eric: No. and I'll give you the key to your house back if you want.

Lucy: I don't care if you have the keys to our house.

Eric: Yeah. That's because I would never go into your house if you weren't home.

Lucy: If you did I wouldn't care. Wait... you let the boys buy hamsters?

Eric: Yes, I let the boys buy hamsters.

Lucy: You never let me have a hamster.

Eric: You never wanted a hamster.

Lucy: Are you okay?

Eric: I'm fine. Please don't ax me that again.

Lucy: Don't "ax" me that again? Wait... did you just say... ax?

Eric: No, I didn't. I did. It's a long story.

Lucy: Well, here's the key. And I'll give you the other ones tomorrow. Unless you want me to keep one in case you lock yourself out or something.

Eric: I won't lock myself out.

Lucy: Dad... are you sure you don't want me to take the boys and... you can have dinner with Kevin just the two guys... have some adult conversation?

Eric: Lucy... I am fine. I'm just fine. and if your mother asks that's what you tell her... I'm fine.

Lucy: I don't know what's going on. But you are anything but fine.

Eric: Okay. You know just because I don't want my own daughter snooping around my house doesn't mean there's something wrong with me.

Lucy: You are irritable. You are unreasonable. You are not yourself. You are hiding something.

Eric: Okay Lucy... I am hiding something. I was hiding the hamsters. I let the boys buy them. I didn't tell your mother and I don't want to tell her until she gets home. Please don't say anything to her about it. and here... you're right about this key. It's your key. You take it. and thanks for offering to give me a night out.

Eric: But I'm fine. I'm fine. I've got a lot on my mind with your mom out of town and the boys and work. It's not like I'm not enjoying my time alone with the boys. It's tiring but I'm enjoying it.

Lucy: Okay. I understand. I'll see you tomorrow. At work? At... at the church?

Eric: Oh sure. See you tomorrow. You're coming to work tomorrow? You'll be in the office?

Lucy: Yeah. I'll be at the office tomorrow.

Kinkirk's House

Lucy: He is in over his head. Whatever it is, he's in over his head. He asked me for the key to his house back.

Kevin: Because?

Lucy: Be... Because I was upstairs when he and the boys got home and I startled him.

Kevin: I told you to get out of there.

Lucy: I couldn't help myself. Then you know what happened? He asked me for all the keys back and he turned down dinner with you.

Kevin: I'm not surprised. I'd feel the same way if I found him snooping around in our house when it got home.

Lucy: No you wouldn't. not unless you were hiding something. He is hiding something. Because after he yelled at me. He then got all nervous and apologized and then gave me my key back. He says that he is overwhelmed with mom being out of town and the boys and everything.

Kevin: Okay I'm not surprised by that either.

Lucy: Uh-uh. We'll see if this surprises you. He let the boys buy... hamsters. Hamsters! As in rodents!

Kevin: They're boys, they like hamsters.

Lucy: You don't see how that ties in with the shampoo?

Kevin: How do hamsters tie in with shampoo?

Lucy: You're kidding me right? They both point to the teacher... Ms. Margo? He let the boys get hamsters to impress her. He got the shampoo to impress her. Or... or so his hair would impress her. Something!

Kevin: I think you should make your case a little stronger before you take it to your mother.

Lucy: Kevin... go over there and insist that he have dinner with you. Tell him it was you who needed to see him. You need to have dinner with him to get his advice. He never turns down anyone for help... never. go!

Kevin: What do I need help with?

Lucy: The same thing you always need help with... me. please?

Camden's House - Kitchen

Kevin: Dad it's me.

Eric: Yeah?

Kevin: Is it all right to come in?

Eric: Why wouldn't it be?

Kevin: I don't know. I didn't want to just walk in your house without knocking.

Eric: You usually just knock and walk in. So I take it Lucy told you I snapped about the key.

Kevin: I don't blame you. She shouldn't have been over here when you weren't home. I need some help with her.

Eric: So do I? I... I don't think I've gotten a straight answer yet about why she was over here.

Kevin: She thinks you're having an affair with the boy's teacher. Or that you're thinking about having an affair with the boys' teacher.

Eric: She does, does she?

Kevin: Yeah. She does. Of course, I don't think you're having an affair. I think that's ridiculous.

Eric: Why is that?

Kevin: Why?

Eric: Yeah, why don't you think I could be having an affair? I could be having an affair. I'm capable of having an affair if I wanted to have an affair. (Knock on door)

Camden's House - Foyer

Ms Margo: Hi.

Eric: Hi.

Camden's House - Front Porch

Ms Margo: Lots of women fall in love with married men.

Eric: Yeah. They do and it's always a mistake.

Ms Margo: It can't always be a mistake.

Eric: You know I don't say always or never very often but... I'm saying always now because it's the truth. It's always a mistake.

Ms Margo: Still... it happens.

Eric: It doesn't happen here.

Ms Margo: I can't help... how I feel about you.

Eric: Really? You can't just help it? So you can't decide that... falling in love with a married man would be a mistake and just not do it? You can't keep yourself from hurting yourself? You can't keep yourself from hurting another woman, a family? You can't help it?

Ms. Margo: No, I can't.

Eric: Yes, you can. You can think about how you want to feel... and act as if you feel that way. And then you will feel that way. You can decided that your feelings are completely inappropriate and choose some other feelings.

Ms. Margo: What if I don't want to choose? What I just want to feel what I fee? What if I want to follow my heart?

Eric: What if you let your head lead where you want your heart to lead? And what if you choose good things for yourself? Hey, what if you actually love yourself?

Ms. Margo: Hey, what if you actually love me.?

Eric: But I don't. I don't love you Ms. Margo. And I don't want to love you.

Ms. Margo: Could you choose to love me?

Eric: I could... but I'm not going to. Why would I? I love my wife, I love my children, I love my grandchildren, I even love myself. And I'm telling you all this... 'cause you really don't know anything about me. We've had a couple of conversations, that's it. a couple of conversations and I don't like what was said... during those conversations. And... and not to be unkind but... I don't like you.

Ms Margo: I think you do. Or you would if you let yourself. And yes, we had a couple of conversations... and you flirted with me. Don't tell me you didn't flirt with me.

Eric: I did not flirt with you. Look I didn't want you to think I was the boy's grandfather 'cause I'm not. And I... and I didn't want you to think I'm an old man... 'cause I'm not.

Ms. Margo: And you care what I think because? You do like me. And you got nervous about liking me so you blew up in the hallway and made that grand speech about morals... because you were afraid you might slip. Am I right?

Eric: No, you're not right. I mean you're not even close to being right. I've never cheated on my wife and I would never cheat on my wife. So... just to review... I'm in love with my wife. I'm not interested in you. Period... end of story.

Ms. Margo: Can I just ax you something?

Eric: No you can't ax me anything. Now one can ax me... anything. There's no axing unless, you know, you're taking an ax and chopping something with it. there's only... asking. Ask, ask, ask...

Ms. Margo: Okay... wow. I do love your passion for doing, and saying the right thing. Can I just ask... you... are... are you okay? Your health? I mean my father got really cranky when he found out he had lung cancer. Not that he should have been surprised, he smoked a couple of packs a day for my entire life. But still he was very angry about it.

Eric: I don't smoke. Never smoked. I'm... I'm sorry about your father. But I'm not sorry that this conversation and all conversations between us... have to come to an end now. Goodnight.

Camden's House - Foyer

Eric: Oh! Hey! Can't a man come home without being surprised by a Kinkirk?

Kevin: I took the boys over our house and I told Lucy you and I were having dinner together. You and I are having dinner together, dad.

Eric: Would you two please leave me alone? I'm not having an affair with the boy's teacher.

Kevin: Fine. but we're still having dinner together.

Eric: Let's see... how can I put this? Oh I know... you're not the boss of me!

Kevin: I didn't say I was.

Eric: You seem to think you are.

Kevin: Look, Dad, really, we need to talk.

Eric: We don't need to talk. If we needed to talk we'd be talking. Now please go get my sons and bring them back over to my house.

Kevin: What is wrong with you?

Eric: Nothing! Nothing is wrong with me. Now would you please go get Sam and David or do I have to get them myself?

Kevin: Hold on... just a second.

Eric: Get out of my way.

Kevin: I'll get them. I promise. I'm on my way to get them right now. I shouldn't have taken them to my house. I'm sorry. I'm really very sorry. That was the wrong thing to do.

Eric: Yes, it was the wrong thing to do.

Kevin: I'll be right back.

Kinkirk's House - Kitchen

Lucy: So what are your hamster's names?

David: I named mine, Jesus.

Lucy: Jesus?

David: Yeah. 'Cause it's a miracle I got a hamster.

Lucy: And what's your hamster's name?

Sam: Mom!

Lucy: Oh Mom because you really miss Mom?

Sam: No, I just like the name.

Lucy: Oh. So... how'd you get Dad to buy you the hamsters? Did you have to promise to do something? You know... where the hamsters are a reward for something? Like not saying something about something? Not telling a secret?

Kevin: All right boys. Dad wants you to come home.

David: We just got here.

Sam: I haven't finished my hot dog.

Kevin: Sorry about that. You'll have to take them with you this time. I forgot to ask your dad if you could come over, and he really wants to be with you tonight.

Lucy: Aren't you and Dad...

Kevin: Not tonight, no. Come on, guys. I'm just going to walk them home. Then I might want to get out for a while by myself.

Lucy: And go where?

Kevin: I don't know yet. Let's just say I've decided to join your investigation.

Savannah: Bye.

Camden's House

Eric: Hey guys, I'm so sorry to call you back. But... I don't know what to do about the hamsters so... I thought the three of us should read up on them you know, make sure we're taking good care of them.

David: Do we have to take a bath first?

Eric: Nah, just brush your teeth.

Sam/David: Goodnight.

Eric: I'm sorry. I'm... I'm really sorry. I'm so tired about ms. Margo that I just snapped. She can't seem to take no for an answer.

Kevin: That must make things a little awkward, huh? You want me to start taking the boys to school for you? If you want me to I could.

Eric: No, no, it's okay. I'm thinking about making some changes.

Kevin: Changes?

Eric: Yeah, I asked to put Sam and David into a different class but... the principal really doesn't see a need for it. I don't know. something has to be done. Um... about before? I guess I'm a little more tired than usual and a little short tempered. Hey, I... I bought the boys hamsters. Clearly I'm not myself.

Kevin: Maybe but you look good. You don't look tired.

Eric: I don't?

Kevin: No. maybe it's the new haircut. You look younger.

Eric: Yeah, I cut my hair a little. And I'm using this shampoo that Simon left here. Fifteen dollars for shampoo. It's probably just the price that makes me think it's doing something for my hair. But... oh... I get it. Yeah it took me a second. Like I said I'm not myself.

Kevin: Get what?

Eric: You're trying to find out why I'm not myself and I already explained it.

Kevin: I'm not trying to make you do anything. If you feel like talking, explaining anything more than you have... then I'd be happy to listen.

Eric: All right Kevin. 'Cause if I don't tell you I'm sure that you and Lucy will just keep on trying to find out. I'm home schooling the boys.

Kevin: You're what?

Eric: I'm home schooling the boys. That's the change I was talking about. I..I took them out of their school and enrolled them in the home schooling program. And... and I got them hamsters to boot.

Kevin: So why don't you just tell Mom? I'm sure she'd understand.

Eric: Yeah, probably. But it's just the kind of thing I'd rather tell her face to face.

Kevin: That's it? You're home schooling the boys that's all that's been bothering you?

Eric: It's not just that. I'm lying to my wife about home schooling the boys. And the hamsters. And everything that led up to the home schooling. And the hamsters. I'm just anxious for her to get home... so I can get everything out in the open. I'm a really bad liar. And I'm not very good at keeping secrets either. So I hope you can help me out with that... you and Lucy?

Kevin: Of course. We won't say anything until you tell us we can. And remember... like you always say, everything is going to be fine.

Eric: Thanks Kevin. I really appreciate it.

Kevin: Good night.

Eric: Good night. And... you know I apologize about before.

Kevin: Not a problem.

Kinkirk's House

Lucy: What did you find out?

Kevin: You're not going to believe this.

Lucy: What... he's having an affair?

Kevin: He's avoiding having an affair.

Lucy: How is he avoiding having an affair?

Kevin: Evidentially this teacher has really been flirting with your dad. And he got so upset over it... that he took the boys out of school.

Lucy: What... they couldn't just change classes?

Kevin: He asked, the principal won't let them.

Lucy: But they have to go to school.

Kevin: He's going to home school them.

Lucy: My dad is going to home school Sam and David?

Kevin: Yep.

Lucy: And how is he going to do that?

Kevin: I didn't get all the details. But he hasn't told your mom anything. And he's so nervous about it he's losing it.

Lucy: Oh... that's kind of sweet.

Kevin: Kind of.

Lucy: Kind of. I don't know if my mom will go along with home schooling. She's really enjoying having the house to herself and a little bit of freedom.

Kevin: I told him we wouldn't tell her. He wants to tell her.

Lucy: Yeah, all right. I understand. And the hamsters... are they part of the home schooling?

Kevin: Yeah. And the shampoo belongs to Simon. He left it at the house.

Lucy: Simon pays more for his shampoo than I do?

Kevin: Yeah. Some of your people as it turns out... use expensive shampoo people.

Lucy: Apparently. Well the guess the mystery is solved. Good work Kinkirk.

Kevin: Yeah thanks. I guess the day dad was down at the school with Ben, he must have gotten into this big blow out with the teacher and the principal. When was that?

Lucy: That was... a week ago... I think. It was the day that we redid the guest room, and I asked my Dad to go down to the hospital to visit my homeless friend, Stanley. And then he got home late and we had... not-a-birthday party.

Kevin: Yeah. He went to the school with Ben, then he went to the hospital then he came home. Do you remember anything else about that day?

Lucy: Yeah. He gave his favorite coat to Stanley. Why?

Kevin: No reason. I'll be back.

Lucy: Wait... why are you trying to figure out what happened if dad told you what happened?

Kevin: I'll be back.

Lucy: Where are you going?

Kevin: To find Stanley.

Camden's House

Sam: I miss Mom, but she would never let us have hamsters.

David: Yeah, I miss her too. But I like having just us guys in the house.

Sam: Me, too.

David: We got hamsters and we don't have to go to school anymore.

Sam: And we get to eat hot dogs all the time.

David: And I haven't had a bath in three days.

Sam: Me neither. But I brushed my teeth.

David: Yeah, teeth are important. The rest of the stuff just takes care of itself.

Sam: Yeah.


Kevin: Hey, it's... it's me, Kevin Kinkirk. Reverend Kinkirk's husband.

Stanley: She's not here.

Kevin: She's sorry she missed you last week down at the hospital.

Stanley: Oh, me too. That was an interesting day. Nice shoes.

Kevin: Thank you. What made that day so interesting?

Stanley: Give me those shoes.

Kevin: I can get you a pair of shoes like this. What's your size?

Stanley: That's my size. Give me them shoes.

Kevin: Let me think about it.

Stanley: What's there to think about? You're looking for information, aren't you?

Kevin: I want to know what happened that day down at the hospital that was so interesting.

Stanley: They gave me cheese-cake instead of Jell-O.

Kevin: Anything else?

Stanley: Anything else... will cost you them shoes. Oh no, no. put your wallet away son... I'm a barter man. Give me the shoes.

Kevin: Should you be smoking? Weren't you just in the hospital?

Stanley: Yeah, but they didn't find nothing wrong with me.

Kevin: That's more interesting than the cheese cake. They didn't' find anything wrong with you?

Stanley: Not a thing. I'm in perfect health.

Kevin: So if you're in perfect health... why did Reverend Camden give you his coat?

Stanley: Give me the shoes. Nice... thank you.

Kevin: So are you going to tell me why Reverend Camden gave you the coat?

Stanley: 'Cause I look good in it.

Kevin: Come on Stanley he could have bought you a coat. Why did he give you that one... the one he was wearing that day?

Stanley: You used to be a police officer didn't you?

Kevin: Yes, I did.

Stanley: Then you know how to conduct an investigation?

Kevin: Yeah.

Stanley: And I know how to be the subject of an investigation. Ax me anything you like.

Kevin: I'm asking you why Reverend Camden gave you the coat.

Stanley: Because he wanted to.

Kevin: Why is that?

Stanley: Give me that sweatshirt.

Kevin: For what?

Stanley: I like it.

Kevin: Yeah, I like it too. And you haven't answered my question that I gave you the shoes for. So no sweatshirt.

Stanley: You show up at my house in the middle of the night... asking me questions... and I'm supposed to tell you everything I know... because you give me a pair of shoes?

Kevin: I thought that was the deal. The pair of shoes for you to tell me how you got the jacket, yes. Here, happy?

Stanley: What does happiness have to do with anything, man?

Kevin: Stanley, just tell me what you know about reverend Camden... and what happened down at the hospital.

Stanley: I don't know. but whatever happened it caused him to give me this nice jacket. And this sweatshirt looks pretty cool under this, don't you think? Ha, ha, and with these shoes... I'm tight, brother.

Kevin: You don't know.

Stanley: No, I don't know. but I know who does.

Kevin: Who?

Stanley: Give me them pants.

Kevin: For what?

Stanley: To complete my ensemble.

Kinkirk's House

Lucy: Hi.

Kevin: Hi. Sorry I woke you. Goodnight. I love you.

Lucy: I love you, too. You gave Stanley your pants?

Kevin: And my shoes and my sweatshirt.

Lucy: And did he tell you anything?

Kevin: Yeah, he told me your dad got in a big fight with the teacher and the principal, and he took the boys out of school and home school them himself.

Lucy: And that cost you everything you had on?

Kevin: Almost.

Lucy: Yeah, people shouldn't bargain with Stanley. He always ends up with the better end of the deals.

Kevin: Yeah. Nice guy.

Lucy: Everyone is not nice you know that, you were a cop.

Kevin: I guess I've been away from it too long. I should have known better.

Lucy: So you think Dad's telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about Ms. Margo and school and everything?

Kevin: It looks that way.

Lucy: I just can't believe that he took the boys out of school.

Kevin: Maybe he'll put them back in before your mother gets home.

Lucy: Probably... good night.

Kevin: Goodnight.

Camden's House

Eric: So we're going to be studying... the metric system? Who uses the metric system? Not in this country. They tried to put that one over on us one too many times. So... let's just skip this and move on to... something else. Let me see... (Knock on door)

Lucy: Anybody home?

Eric: Hey, look who's knocking. Come on in. Care to join us for the first day of school?

Lucy: Oh no. I've got to run. I just needed to drop this off. I'm just trying to finalize the Sunday school curriculum for next year. So maybe you can take a look at it and tell me what you think when you have a few minutes.

Eric: Will do... when I have a few minutes.

Lucy: I'm going down to the church office. I can proof Sunday's bulletin and make sure all the announcements are in so we can get that to the copier.

Eric: Great. Thank you.

Lucy: Oh and there is a budget meeting at four. But I called Lou and he said it's just to tell you that we're under budget at this point. And of course we've got a couple of holidays coming up in a few months and we're going to probably spend anything we've saved. But you know... right now we are under... way under. So don't bother coming in. I'll take care of everything. I know you're busy.

Eric: Thanks Luce, I really appreciate it.

Lucy: Well you've been covering me for a couple of months. And I'm ready to get back. I need to get back. So, you know, enjoy the boys and you know don't worry... your secrets are safe with me. Don't worry about anything.

Eric: I'll choose not to.

Lucy: Good. Bye. See you guys later.

Eric: She's a good daughter. And a good sister. And a good wife and a good mother.

David: That's because you're a good dad.

Sam: The best.

Eric: Thanks. I'm sorry. That's just so nice of you guys. Really, thank you.

David: Can we have a pony?

Eric: No. I don't know. Maybe. We'll see how it goes with the hamsters.

Dr. Tsegay's Office

Doctor: I can't really say anything regarding the Reverend Camden. And frankly Kevin I'm surprised you came to me instead of to his regular doctor. I'm not his doctor. He's been seeing Dr. Dunne for years. Do you have a relationship with him?

Kevin: No. Mrs. Camden does and... she called him and she said dad hadn't been in. he's due in but he hasn't' been in.

Doctor: Well I know Annie so I'm sure she'll get him in.

Kevin: But you saw him that day at the hospital?

Doctor: Yes, I saw him. He was there with our friend Stanley. How is Stanley?

Kevin: Stanley is... Stanley. Did you just intentionally change the subject?

Doctor: I can't tell you anything.

Kevin: But... there is something to tell.
