Sigh. Sigh. Wringing of the hands. He says that if they lose Tom they can't make the mortgage payments on the firehouse and if they lose that, they lose the house. They have until the next day. He says that the two of them aren't going to get it done in time. "Well, it's, um, it's not just the two of us," Mary says with a smile, kicking off the "We're Gonna Do It" happy guitar as she goes jogging back to the door. "I brought slave labor," she says with a huge exhale, knowing what a goddamn beautiful saint of a woman she is. Elizabeth, Meghan, Cameron, Kenny and Clay walk in like the Reservoir Dogs carrying paint buckets, boomboxes and important boxes. Mitch looks down and thinks, "Of course. My family can do anything. I'm the luckiest father in the whole world. I should get me a t-shirt that says how lucky I am." Smug, satisfied smiles on the Green family ask where they start. Mitch can't believe how incredible his family is. He just has to exhale again: "Anywhere you want." He laughs and laughs. Sure, thirty Russian electricians couldn't get it done in three months, but with the power of love, age, youth, incest and fresh sex, these six scamps are just the rag-tag team to get it done right, by golly.
You know it's coming. You can't stop it. The music already started. Get your Kleenex, kids. All hail the Restoration Montage. These kids move heavy objects, paint with rollers, install electronic equipment, paint some more, smile, laugh, and give meaningful looks at one another.
A new sign has been already made and is put into place by Mitch and Mary. Mitch leers at Meghan for a few moments, and Mary watches him leer. She gives him a "she's your daughter!" smile as he smiles back, "Damn right she is. All mine. I'm glad she doesn't know about the money I stole from her."
Cam and Clay install a sink. I'm not kidding.
Kenny and Elizabeth screw light bulbs into a chandelier.
Meghan is screwing something into an electrical socket as Mitch just can't take it anymore and has to walk over and touch her. He strokes her arm and kisses her head. She looks up and beams. She flips the switch, and on the other side of the wall Clay is suddenly electrocuted. He's not, but he should have been. Still, he would have been a bit blinded, since he was currently screwing a giant lamp into a wall and it just lit up right in his face. He looks at Meghan, who gives a "Who rocks? I rock!" dance. See? I'm being more mature. I just typed the word "screw" like, six times and totally left it alone.
