Barry, are you awake?

Honey, just relax.

Doctor says everything's gonna be just fine.

Until that day, I couldn't imagine living for anything other than women.

You see, there's a moment that exists at the edge of sexual success for which there is no equal... the addictive seconds just after uncertainty and immediately preceding touching the gold.

It's Christmas.

It's with this in mind that I relate the events leading to the involuntary removal of my testicles.

Yep. Mm-

Yeah. No, that's gonna be great.

We can do that.

I don't know how you do it, Lucy.

Do what?

Look like a model.

A supermodel, actually.

A super-duper model.

Hey, I don't know what you got goin' on later, but I was thinkin' of hittin' the happy hour over at Chili's. Got a workout partner...

I don't date people at my workplace.

Who said date? TGIF.

Maybe not... maybe not Chili's.

Everpea has got this really rad nacho bar.

Why don't you date people at your work?

I just don't.

You just...

You're probably right.

You're smart. It's a smart idea.

You got beauty and brains.

You guys fall in love, and then have babies.

Beautiful babies with blue eyes.

TGIF.

All right. What's up, Denise?

Hey, you don't like nachos? Mm-mm.

No no no. I do!

Nacho time for me!

My tires are stinky.

What?

That's a catchphrase, somethin' I’m workin' on.

How we lookin'? Shit, place is a hatchery. It's stupid.

I wanna be an architect. Whoa, over there.

See it? Dress suit, sneakers. Work hard, play hard.

I could go back to school, be an architect. People like architects.

Dude, what are you talkin' about?

You make really good money at your job.

I just... I just...

I don't think insurance is, like, all that interesting, you know, as a lifestyle.

Whoa. Caught 'em peekin'.

You ready? Let's rock 'n' roll. Sweet.

Hey, so if they ask, I’m gonna tell 'em I’m an architect.

Hey, tell 'em I work with kids.

Hold these.

No no, seriously, I used to get beat up like twice a week for having such thick eyelashes. ls that your card? No.

All the way to the seventh grade, and that's when I decided that's it, and I went for my black belt. ls that your card?

No. No.

That's so sad. Yeah.

I'd kill for those. Well, now yeah, sure.

ls that your card? Yes!

My God, that is incredible!

That's what we do.

My God.

How'd you do that?

Come on.

Did you have that in your mouth the whole time?

What is that?

It's my kitty cat.

Mmm, it is sparkly and beautiful.

Thanks.

Are you a cat person?

I love cats.

Yeah? Meow.

I love pussy... What?

...cats too.

Excuse me, you want me to close out your tab, sir?

Sir? Somebody's dad show up?

Do you want me to put this on your daddy's card? no, you can just close it out.

Awesome.

Fine.

Wow.

So what do you two do?

We're architects. Cool.

Wow.

I love buildings.

Barry...

I’m married.

We could just mess around here if you want.

Okay.

Thank you.

Hi.

Excuse me, sir.

Sure.

Sir?

Okay.

Can I help you? Yes, please.

Coffee.


No Duds. That's my candy.

I’ll have a soda. Okay.

Dos.

It's ridiculous how much soda costs these days, right?

Like, what do I buy, soda or a sofa?

Yeah.

Well, it was nice talkin' to you.

You don't want to sit with me? Well...

I guess.

I’m a down front kind of guy.

No no no no. Seven rows from the back, and four in from the left.

That's pretty specific.

Yeah, it's sort of OCD, but screw it.

I like what I like, you know what I mean?

Yeah, I do. I almost always, after I click my lock a couple times on my door...

So, Barry, what do you do?

Architecture.

Barry, if I told you right now that you would never ever ever get your hand down my pants, would you still talk to me?

Talk about what?

Hey...

What the hell's goin' on?

Dad, what are you doing here?

Dad? Sir...

I do remember thinking why would a dude bring a trumpet into a movie theater?

Barry?

Barry, can you tell us what happened?

We were talking about architecture.

Barry, I’m sorry to be the one to have to tell you, but we couldn't save them.

Save who?

Barry, your testes.

Testicles. We had to remove both.

We really tried to save the left one, but it was simply too ruptured.

It seems that during the accident with the...

Trumpet. ...trumpet.

What are you saying?

You're saying I lost my what?

Amnesia.

Did I lose my... Whoa.

...you know? Penis?

No.

You really don't remember what happened to you down there?

We were talking about architecture.

Get out of there.

This is kinda like when you had your tonsils out.

Well, kinda.

I wore that on Saturday night, right? and I’m standing outside, and all these guys were like looking at me, and they're like, "Best habitat ever."

Where have you been, mister?

Lida, I... Relax.

I forgive you.

I guess I forgot to mention my girlfriend Lida Griggs was out of town when the incident occurred.

It's a long story, but we don't see each other for sometimes weeks or months at a time.

I need to borrow your alarm clock.

Pretty sure we don't really like each other.

Let's go, lover.

We're going to try something new today, lover.

Lida, why don't we just watch a movie?

Shh.

Lida, I... All tight?

Yeah.

But we should talk first.

Why don't we start by talking about... this?

I found it in your car when I was looking for my lavender and vanilla body soufflé.

Lida, listen... ls it true? Um...

Did you show her your penis? What?

You whore! No, Lida...

Did you let her play with this? Stop.

I had an accident.

Barry, I don't know what all of this is, but Peaches and I have no sympathy for cheating assholes.

And if you think the love I give you is all fun and games, well... you had better sleep with one eye open, mister.

Can you untie me?

Come, Peaches.

Barry honey, it's Mom.

I picked up your hormone pills at the pharmacy.

Honey?

Barry, I hope it's okay, but I brought Janice with me from my Latin dance symposium. Hi, Barry.

Excuse me, Lonnie?

Talk to you later.

Hey, um...

I was wondering if I could take a leave of absence.

Um, I had a... with a... and um... just wonderin' if I could take a few days off.

It's all I'm thinkin'... just time to get, you know.

Basically, I have some family issues.

Now, first of all Barry, you're lying.

I’ve been in this business for 40 years and I can always tell the difference.

You don't have any family issues, do you?

Well, I have...

Well, you're just lazy.

You know, you sit in your office pretending to be on the telephone, shuffling papers all day, and every hour or so you get up and walk around Lucy's desk like a four-balled tomcat.

And what's worse, you don't even care enough to cover it up.

Also, it's just my opinion, but...

I don't think men should wear makeup.

See you tomorrow, Barry.

Okay.

You have one message.

Yo, Mundo, you know who it is. Where the hell you been?

Shit, bro, listen, you'll never guess where I am right now.

Regional Air Guitar Semifinals.

So, I was thinkin', if I make it onto the finals, maybe you could use a little ta-da, we raise a glass down at the Beaver Tree.

Titty bar bush, baby.

Be there, or be a fuckin' tool.

Later!

End of messages.

"Dear Mr. Munday,"

I have been retained to represent the interests of Miss Ginger Farley.

Miss Farley believes that you are the father of her unborn child conceived on or about February 11th.

I have been retained to establish paternity, and to obtain a child support order consistent with our state's rules of judicial administration.

If you wish to admit paternity, I can draft all necessary documents.

If you wish to deny paternity, I will seek an order of the court for DNA testing.

Please contact me within 10 days.

"Sincerely, Newton Creech, Attorney at Law."

Ginger Farley?

Who the fuck is Ginger Farley?

Mr. Munday, Newton Creech here.

Hi. Yes sir, um, well, I got your letter.

Yes you did.

First off, this Ginger Farley, how does she know that I’m the father of the baby?

I mean... well, yeah, how does she know?

That's an easy question.

According to Miss Farley, she has had intercourse one time in her entire life... with you, on February 11th of this year.

It wasn't hard for her to figure it out.

Wow. Okay.

Where did we meet, me and Miss Farley?

Let's not play games, Barry.

If you want to play games, please, go hire a lawyer.

No, sir, I’m not playing games.

I just...

Hey, just wanna make sure the baby's mine, right?

Um, I mean, I'll take a blood test voluntarily.

Do you really have no recollection of your sexual encounter with Ginger Farley?

Because Mr. Munday, I find that really hard to believe.

So... could we meet, Ginger Farley and I?

Maybe coffee, or pastry?

Wow. You know what I’m gonna do?

I'm gonna tell Ginger you'd like to meet her somewhere and she can call you. How's that?

That'd be great. Okay.

You know, Mr. Munday, they say one man's burden can be another man's happiness.

Thank you.

It's strange, I honestly can't explain why it only occurred to me just now, I end with me.

No more Mundays.

I’m it, the very last.

That thought rose slowly to the surface of my mind, and on top of everything else.

I guess it never seemed important before.

Marriage? No thank you.

Children? They smell, and grow up to hate you and take your money.

Sure, I grew up without a father.

Maybe that colored my outlook on life, I don't know.

All I know is I once had options.

My balls were great.

I was great.

I’m pretty sure I was great.

Line 1, a Ginger Farley.

Good luck.

What does that mean?

Shee-ee...

Why'd you want to meet me, Barry?

Ginger.

It's good to see you. ls it?

Yes.

This is familiar.

This is where we met, Barry.

Right over there.

You want to sit down? No.

Yeah.

So, how far along are you?

Well, on February 11th, a few moments before midnight, your little sperm army stormed my pink beach.

So, you count the days.

Newton said you had no memory of our sex.

He did?

What an asshole.

Right.

No, you... you're an asshole.

Ginger, I don't mean to offend, but are you totally, 100%, absolutely, positivo sure that the baby's mine?

You little shit-eater.

I am weak one night, one night, and with a shit-eater like you.

God knows why, and now you want to sit here at Snatchers and ask me crap?

Yes, Barry, I’m "positivo" the baby is yours.

And you're not going to run away from your responsibility.

Do you mind if I touch it?

I don't know why I said that.

Touch what?

Your belly, touch where the baby is.

Ooh!

I’ll have Newton call you, and he'll go over the paternity test, and the paternity acknowledgment forms.

That is, if you decide to sign them.

Goodbye, Barry.

Goodbye. Asshole shit-eater.

It's great seeing you again.

You're not gonna take the... Yeah, I don't need to take a test.

Why not?

Because I know.

You know?

Yeah. I feel it.

You feel it?

Yes.

I got you a drink. It's virgin.

Very funny, Barry. What do you want from me?

I don't kn... nothing, I just...

What did you want from me?

Do you think I’m after money? No.

You don't think that if you were there for the passion of our sex that you should be accountable and take responsibility for this little miracle that we made?

No, I’m saying I want to take responsibility here.

This isn't all my fault! Why are you yelling at me?

Shit-eater.

Ginger, I’m saying I want to be a part of this, like a real dad, you know?

With dedication... financially, spiritually, morally.

Look, I don't have to be in your life.

You and I don't have to be, you know... but for the baby, I think we should be friendly, friends.

Friends.

Cheers.

So, do we know if it's a boy or a girl from the x-ray?

We call that a sonogram, and no, I haven't found out.

I don't want to know.

How's the drink?

It's awful. This straw is ridiculous.

So, can I touch the baby?

Can I touch your belly now?


Can I go to the doctor with you?

Don't get the wrong idea, Barry.

You're still a shit-eater.

Hey.

Green Insurance, Barry Munday speaking.

Why don't you ask her if you can have a squirt?

Ginger Farley? Come on back.

Yeah.

So, don't ask me why, but my parents want to meet you.

They want you to come to dinner tomorrow night.

It's stupid, so... I mean, it's not my idea.

If you don't want to go, I'll just tell them that you don't want to go and that'll be the end of it.

No, I’ll go.

My parents won't like you.

Why not?

They just won't.

Knock-knock.

Hi. Hey, Ginger, how're we feeling?

Well, my feet are swollen, I pee 2,000 times a day, I haven't taken a shit since Tuesday, and my nipples are like black.

Okay. Good, let's see here what we have.

We have a possible due date of December 10th.

Sweet.

Yeah.

So, you still thinking of having the water birth at home?

Yeah. What's a water birth at home?

I want to have the baby submerged in water, naturally, and beautifully.

Do you mean like in your tub?

Actually, we use a little wading pool with warm water.

The midwife is in there for natural childbirth.

I think it's great.

It's beautiful, and Dr. Shriver thinks it's great.

Yeah, okay.

Um, Dr. Shriver, I’m Barry Munday. I'm the father.

I was... basically, I was just hoping I could ask a few questions, if you don't mind.

Okay, ask away.

All right, um, well, will I be allowed to participate in the birth?

I’d like to be there to help with the baby when it comes out.

Absolutely. You and the midwife will be side by side.

Just listen to her, watch the videos, and take the classes.

Okay, awesome.

Um, are there any foods that Ginger shouldn't eat?

I read somewhere that pregnant women shouldn't eat blue cheese.

Are you retarded?

I never heard the one about the blue cheese.

I heard that sometimes women poop, like during the birth.

It's natural.

Um...

I read online that it was possible for doctors to identify patients by their vaginas.

Did you hear that?

I was just curious.

Good luck to you, son.

Yeah, it's not important. No.

Ginger, I’ll see you next week.

Okay, well, I guess,...

So, tomorrow night.

For what?

Dinner with my parents.

Right. Jesus!

No... it's awesome.

So, hey...

Good night, Barry.

That's cool. I’m really tired.

Hi.

Okay.

This is our second child, and while my wife knows that she won't fit into her old clothes, she's still beautiful.

And it's my job to tell her that she looks amazing all the time.

Hi, beautiful. Hi.

Which I try to do as regularly as possible.

Hi.

You're early.

What?

I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but that dress doesn't do you justice.

That's interesting, Barry.

You didn't seem to have a problem with this dress the night you pulled it off my body and had sex with me.

So, I've been kickin' around some names.

The baby already has a name.

What is it?

If it's a boy, Haywood.

Haywood? Mm-

Haywood Munday?

Don't be stupid. What?

The baby's last name won't be Munday.

Why not?

Because we're not married, idiot. l-l... but I’m the father.

So? So...

Come on, I mean, I...

I stepped up to the responsibility.

One trip to my doctor to ask him about his other patients' vaginas is not stepping up.

Yeah, but it's our baby, right?

It's yours and mine, right?

I mean I'm here, Ginger. I’m the father.

Fine, fine!

Fine.

The baby won't have a last name.

It'll just be Haywood.

No, that... just Haywood?

I don't think you can do that legally, can you?

Why not? Lots of famous people in history only have one name.

Moses.

Cleopatra.

Calvin.

Who's Calvin? Jesus.

So, if the baby only gets one name, why do you get to decide?

Why?

'Cause this baby's in me, not you.

Because every minute I’m making a human being, not you.

And because my tits feel like two ziplock bags full of dried-up oatmeal. Do yours?

I don't think it's fair to use my biological disadvantages against me.

You know I’d switch places with you if I could.

I would, seriously.

I go to work alone, I sleep alone, but you get to experience a connection to this baby I am completely excluded from.

Just so you know, my parents think that you put drugs in my drink and had intercourse with me while I was unconscious.

Honey, well...

This is for you.

Come with me, son.

I want you to see a few of these trophies. Wonderful.

Who's this? This is our youngest, Jennifer.

Any pictures of Ginger?

Yeah...

No.

She doesn't like pictures.

Sit down, son.

So, Mr. Munday, we've got ourselves a bit of a situation here, don't we?

Yes, sir. Um...

I... I'm not sure what you've been told concerning my actions.

Wait a minute.

Did you not tell my daughter that you would accept full responsibility for being father of this baby, you shit-eater?

Yes, um... Financially, morally?

I... I'm sorry, but did you not say that all these things would be your actions, Mr. Munday?

I thought you-you were...

Nah, that's... I thought you were talking about...

About what? Talking about what? What are you talking about?

Nothing.

Nothing?

Mr. Munday, Ginger is hardheaded, and yes, unappreciative at times of her family's love, but she is my daughter.

Remember that.

Yes sir.

Good.

Pumpkin farm!

Dinner's ready.

I expect you'll be looking forward to continuing this later on, Mr. Munday.

Yes sir.

So, you're Barry the rapist.

Tell us about yourself, Barry.

This is the first time Ginger has ever brought a man home to meet us.

Our Jennifer brings fellas home all the time.

But that's Jennifer.

I’m a slut.

You stop that.

She is not a slut.

She's graduating from business school and she plays three instruments.

Jennifer is very very special... ed.

Personally, I think this is nice for Ginger, even though I don't approve of the way the two of you did your business.

Mom... I blame myself.

I tell her it's not natural to be by herself all the time.

I’ve told her this since she was 14, "You need to put on makeup, nice dresses, show some pride, like Jennifer."

Leave her alone, Mom.

Let's ask Barry.

You like makeup, don't you?

I... She does it for attention.

I can't believe this. Calm down.

All I'm saying is, it's great to have Barry here.

He gets that.

I think Ginger's beautiful.

And personally, as the father, I feel it's my role to tell her she looks amazing all the time, which I try to do regularly.

So, Barry, um, you were telling my wife about yourself.

Well, not much to tell, really.

I flirted with architecture for a while.

I thought about getting into triathlons, or relay races.

Been in insurance... about a year.

Um... it's good. It's really good.

Where? It's on Moorpark.

Green Insurance.

Lonnie Green's a great friend of mine.

I’ll call him, arrange to have lunch, the three of us.

That would be great.

Get to know the new father a little bit.

That sounds good.

Well... we're gonna have a baby.

That's wonderful.

Anyone like a gin and tonic?

So, where'd you two meet?

Snatchers.

I see.

I guess you knew Barry before the operation.

I guess so.

So, Ginger, mother to mother, what is it that you want for this baby?

Besides healthy?

I guess I just want my child to feel loved and appreciated, even if it's 180 degrees different from me.

I would be very proud to have a gay child.

So, where are we having this wonderful new addition?

St. Joseph's?

I'm having a water birth at home.

Huh. huh.

Yeah, the doctor thought it was a great idea.

And it's natural and beautiful.

So...

Well, I’d like to do whatever I can to help out.

You're gonna need a baby bed, and bottles, and lots and lots of diapers.

That's great, Mom. Thanks.

I appreciate it, but my baby won't be wearing diapers.

I mean, why is it we can teach a kitten just a few months old to use a sandbox, but a child, infinitely more intelligent, walks around shitting in their pants for two years?

Ginger read that. This doctor... what's his name?

Plus, all the harmful pathogens in human feces, just smushed in there in that hot incubator of a diaper.

She comes from a really nice family... wealthy, nice house.

Her sister plays three instruments.

Honey, I don't care if she's a Kennedy.

A cat box?

She wants to train your baby to use a cat box.

Can you imagine?

There she is!

Where is your bathroom?

Go around this corner and through the living room, just on your right, past the zebra.

A cat box.

You want to maybe tell me about this operation in case I get placed in that situation again, "honey"?

Um...

I went to a matinee a few months ago, um... one second I was watching a movie...

No!

...and six hours later I woke up in a hospital where they had removed my testicles.

What happened in the matinee?

I wish I knew.

I actually have no memory due to the trauma.

Are you serious?

Well, the doctor said it may come back eventually, um, maybe not, but I hope so.

You have no testicles.

I don't know why I never told you about... about it before, but with the baby, you being pregnant was a real miracle in a lot of ways.

Shut up. No, come on, I’m serious.

I don't know, I just... you came, and there's purpose now.

Direction.

Morning, Hoss. Hey.

Free for lunch? Sure.

Good, an old buddy of mine, Tom, asked for you specifically.

Tom...? Tom Farley.

Asked for my number one shit-eater.

Aw, man, I’d love to get a piece of that business.

How do you know Tom, anyway?

I’m,... I’m friends with his daughter.

Tom! Lon! How're you doin'?

Nice to see you, man! You look spectacular!

You've lost weight, man.

You don't mind if my daughter joins us, do you?

I was downtown shopping, so...

No no, not at all. Nice to see you again.

You too. Hi, Barry.

Hi, Jennifer. I think our table's ready.

Thank God, I thought you were talking about the other daughter.

Menu, sir? Thank you.

Well, anyway, I’m really glad we were able to do this, my old friend and my...

Yeah, Barry is quite a guy.

Yeah.

So, what's good here? I'm a red sauce man, myself.

Best in town. Lonnie:

Hey-yy...

Jen.

Hey, Barry.

The calamari gets good reviews. Whitefish... my favorite are the chops.

Specials somewhere.

Hi, lover.

So, this your little kitty cat?

No, Lida. Look, this is not the time or the place...

Oof!

Gentlemen.

Ooh.

She's an old girlfriend.

Before Ginger. A long time ago.

Ginger?

My other daughter.

So, I heard you had an interesting lunch yesterday.

She's an old girlfriend. She's crazy.

What old girlfriend?

They didn't... I thought...

I'm kidding. Of course they told me.

You're such an idiot.

Why do you do that... all the "idiot, shit-eater" stuff all the time?

I’m sorry, Barry, am I hurting your feelings?

No, I mean, ahem...

I’m trying to be nice.

See, I can't win. It's like you constantly expect me to disappoint you.

And why would I expect that?

All right, I’m an idiot shit-eater.

But for the record, you should know expectation is nothing but planned resentment.

Do you have that written on a poster on the wall of your office?

No, it's a book, a good book, and I think it's true.

And if you want to carry that around with you all the time, hey, that's your bag.

But remember, you called me.

And I’m here.

Whatever. It doesn't matter.

I don't blame you for a goddamn thing.

Well, I want it to matter.

I want you to like me.

Ginger, the doctor will see you now.

Liking people is easy, Barry.

Good talent tonight.

No, not Italian. I think she's Spanish.

Exactly.

Be cool, dude. I’m just comin' for the trophy.

What the hell, dude?

My night.

What?

Barry, what are you doing here?

What's that? What?

Nothing! Shut up! What do you want?

No, sorry, I just...

I just... wanted to make sure the baby was okay.

Don't be stupid. I’m not being stupid.

I’m not being stupid.

The baby's fine.

I just...

Can I come in?

Go home, Barry.

It's 2:00 in the morning.

I know, I just...

Can I?

Fine, but I am not sharing my bed with you.

I know.

I’ll put some sheets on the couch.

By the way, I forgot, Jennifer invited you to her graduation.

This is when the baby's due.

It's the week of the due date.

The baby could come at any minute.

I feel like it's gonna kick a hole in my side and crawl out right now.

Can I feel it?

Are you scared?

Do you want me to go to your sister's graduation?

If you want.

That's not what I’m asking.

Let's not pretend these people like me.

Are you afraid of my family?

Yes, yes I am. Each one of them... individually, and as a group.

Fine.

Yes, I would like you to accompany me to my sister's graduation.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the name Cornelia.

Yes?

Well, you just have to be careful with names, um, basically, 'cause children are cruel.

Yes.

And you got to know they're gonna shorten the name.

They'll call her Corny.

She's a girl... that's what she'll be called.

Do you like Corny?

Yes I do.

You know what the boys in high school are gonna call her?

What?

Horny Corny.

That's what boys like you will call her, not everybody.

Maybe, but that'll be her name.

Look, I’m not gonna mold my life, or my child's life around the actions of perverts and degenerates.

I’m not afraid of the idiocy of "Horny Corny" because it rhymes, or because it's dirty, or because people are too lazy to pronounce her real name, Cornelia.

And by the way, the next time you touch my tit without permission I will cut you while you're sleeping.

Hello! You must be Carol.

It's so nice to finally meet you. Come in.

Hi. Nice to meet you.

Barry's always saying what a nice family Ginger has.

How sweet. Mrs. Munday.

So nice to meet you at last. My pleasure.

And it's Ms. Ms.

Hi! Pumpkin farm!

And this is our youngest, Jenny.

This is Carol, Barry's mother.

Hi, Jennifer. Congratulations.

Thanks! Hey, Jennifer.

Nice to see you again.

Well, nice to see you as well, Barry. Nice suit.

Thank you.

Hi, Barry. Hi, Ms. Munday.

Hi, sweetie.

Hey. Hi. Hello.

Well, shall we go through and have a little lunch?

Yes. Ms. Munday, may I?

You look nice.

You're wearing a suit.

You want another piece?

Not yet.

It's kind of gross. It's going good.

They can hear you.

What? They can hear you.

Father Walsh? Mm-

Did you hear about Barry's accident?

Um, no, I don't think I have.

Jennifer, I don't think this is the time.

It's okay, right, Barry?

See, Barry was at a matinee, and some whacko just attacked him.

Attacked him? It was awful.

Okay, Jen, I don't think we want to bring up personal stuff, now do we?

Jen. Phtt-tt!

Anyway, somebody just comes into the theater and... right into his...

...you know, his balls.

And they never caught the guy, but... personally, I think Barry was makin' time with another fella's lady.

Okay, Jen.

I’d stop now or you-know-what will be revealed.

And you don't want that, do ya?

Or scammin' on some little girl and Daddy caught him.

Pervert.

All right, check it!

10:00 on a Saturday night, I saw Jennifer as the featured dancer at a nudie club called the Beaver Tree.

Ha!

Sorry to be the one to tell you all.

I know it's embarrassing for you.

It was embarrassing for me to see her on stage.

Believe me.

Barry... Father Walsh.

Barry... She just... she pushed me.

I couldn't help it. Shame on you.

Barry... It was Whitesnake.

- Barry... ♪ Here I go again on my own... ♪ Barry, last Saturday night, Mr. and Mrs. Farley and their two daughters were at my house to discuss Ginger's pregnancy. till at least 10:00.

10:30.

10:30?

For the record, sir, I had never been to the Beaver Tree previous to that engagement.

This cake's delicious.

Thank you.

My God! What?!

My water broke.

Are you serious? Are you sure?

Call Janice. Who's Janice?

The midwife, you idiot! The midwife, Barry!

Watch your step! Watch your step!

Barry, there's no room for you! You're yelling in my head!

What? No room!

You and your mother take Father Walsh.

Son, son, this way!

Get the camera. Get the camera, hon.

Here's a good shot right here. Beautiful.

Talk to your baby, Ginger.

Sandwich? Popcorn? I’m okay.

Okay, Daddy, why don't you come and be a part of this?

Talk to your baby, Barry.

Okay. Um, hi baby.

I’m Barry Munday.

I wish you all the best... today comin' out of your mom's vagina.

Here we go! Time for the baby!

Breathe, breathe.

Come on, come on!

You can do it, baby!

Why don't you step into the tub? I'm wearing a suit.

Well, you can strip down to your undies if you wish.

I'm not wearing any underwear.

Barry. Barry, will you just get in the G-D tub!

Yes sir.

Agh-hh!

Yep, no recollection of that place whatsoever.

Wait, I forgot something!

Push.

Okay, mirror. Carol, could you give me the mirror?

Great. Let me see if that's right.

What the hell is this?

It's whales in the ocean.

It's supposed to be soothing.

Right?

What? What are you saying?!

I can't hear you! Just reach down. Just reach down.

Turn off the fucking whales!

I got it! Happy thoughts.

That's it.

You can do it, Ginger! I can't do any more!

Say hello to your little girl.

It's a girl.

Just follow the baby. You can never go wrong.

You were right.

You were right.

She's beautiful.

Wanna hold her? Yeah.

I got her. I got her. I got her.

Okay.

Christmas.


How's she doin'?

I just came in here to... Ginger was watchin' some videos.

I just wanted to turn it off.

Thanks for stayin' the night.

I know you had your graduation.

It's just a sheet of paper.

Yeah, well, Ginger appreciates it, so congratulations.

You know, we've never had much time alone together, Barry.

Why are you doing this? Does it still work?

What are you doing? Relax, I’m a professional, remember?

I knew it. Stop! I knew it.

That was you at the Beaver Tree.

What is it? ls it that you just don't like me?

Or are you jealous? No, please.

Of you?

I don't know.

Ginger?

Is it really that boring being everybody's favorite all the time?

What are you two doing up?

Look who I found in here watching boobs.

Pervert.

I’m gonna go to bed.

Okay, get a little... a little drink of water.

Vroom, Vroom-vroom.

Sweet girl.

Right there.

It's broken.

I see.

Well.

You a daddy?

Yeah.

Fantastic.

Let's see the little bugger.

Okay.

Now look at that... half-Asian.

Excuse me?

Your baby. Oriental, right?

I don't think so.

Been in this park over 30 years, seen every baby from red to blue to Tyler too.

Eyes, hue of skin... nothing like Japanese skin.

Damn soft, too.

Velvet.

Mm-mm-mm...

Hey, man, can I help you?

Sorry.

What?

Sorry.

Why are you sorry?

Sorry. Why are you s...

Mom, do you think Cornelia looks like me?

Yes, I do.

Does she look like my father?

No. Neither do you.

I thought he was an ugly man.

Why are you asking?

I don't know.

Where'd he come from?

Your father came from a place very far away, and he should've stayed there.

He left behind the only part of him worth knowing... you.

Does my baby look Asian to you?

This isn't about Cornelia, is it?

This is about your testes. What?

It's natural after a loss like this to question, "ls it real?"

Did I actually make this little creature?"

Questions are healthy.

I think that's the main reason you had the paternity test.

Barry, God has his ways, kiddo.

She is beautiful, isn't she?

She's a Munday.

Cornelia... something-Munday.

Just Cornelia.

No middle name?

No middle name, no last name. Just Cornelia.

You have to have a last name. That's illegal, isn't it?

What about Jesus, Madonna, or Calvin?

Who's Calvin?

I don't know.

What are you doing? Nothin'.

Fine.

Listen, Cornelia's sleeping, but you're gonna have to feed her soon.

Where are your glasses?

I got contacts a month ago.

You haven't noticed?

Would you notice if I had no head?

Probably.

See those guy's plants across the hall? They're pretty sweet.

My mom's number is on the fridge.

Are you sure you can handle this?

Yeah. We'll be fine.

I got beer.

Are you okay?

I’m awesome.

Br-rr-rr.

Br-rr-rr.

Hello? Barry, it's Mom. Could you come over?

Now?

Just for an hour or so. This damn disposal.

I’m watching Cornelia, Mom.

Bring her. She should be visiting her grandmother, you know.

Hello. Barry, hi.

I’m Dr. Preston Edwards.

Please, don't be alarmed.

Your mother's concerned.

She loves you very much.

I thought you had a bad disposal.

Barry, listen to Dr. Edwards.

Adorable.

Barry, our group provides support to help us understand what has happened to us.

Boys? Each of the men in this room has suffered some kind of genital mutilation or deformity.

You're not alone.

Hi, I’m Jerry Sherman.

When I was 11 years old, my penis was completely severed.

Now the end pokes out like a little snappy turtle.

And yes, I do urinate sitting down.

But you know what? My testicles are intact.

So, I'd say my glass is half full.

Well done, Jerry.

My name's Kyle Pennington.

I’m 37. I have a master's degree in education.

My penis is 16 inches long.

It's thin like a rope, and my testicles are the size of peanuts.

I suffer from a rare genetic disorder called Glassroth Syndrome. I’m the founder of the group.

Thank you, Kyle.

If you're laughing out of nervousness or embarrassment, that's understandable.

But there is nothing funny about Kyle's condition.

I’m sorry, Kyle.

Ahem...

My name is Maury... Maury Knox.

Maury is a new member.

He prefers to speak with his back to the group.

I, um... actually, I have no genitalia at all.

My private spot is a smooth hairless patch.

And I pee out of my a-anus.

This is my second meeting.

Thank you, Maury.

Barry, I know this must seem strange to you.

No. No, it's totally... it's cool.

Came over with my baby to my mom's house to help fix her disposal, and I find five dudes sitting in my living room waiting to tell me stories about their dicks.

It's perfectly normal.

Okay.

Can I ask you a question, Dr. Edwards?

You ever find people who figure out their own problems without the help of a support group?

Well, I have patients who have believed that they have self-healed, only to have their problems resurface in acts of violence, estrangements, sexual confusion... Served it, sister.

Okay. Well hey, I’m not violent, estranged or sexually confused, so maybe I’m cured.

Ha, no one is ever really cured.

That's nice, Doctor, but my balls are gone.

And I don't think your group discussions will help bring them back.

I don't even know if I want the damn things.

The only good they ever did was help make Cornelia and I don't even know if they can honestly take credit for that.

Thank you.

Mini-breakthrough.

You really should join our group.

It's Thursday nights at 7:00.

Jerry, are you on refreshments this week?

I’m makin' puff pastry, Doc. Good times.

Tell you what, why don't I just call you when I'm feeling violent, estranged, or...

Sexually confused?

Barry? Yes, Preston.

All right. Fellas?

Bye.

Here's the one I was looking for.

This is Christmas. You were four, I think.

Yes. I was fat.

Look it, look it, look it, look it.

Look. Yeah, see, she's got your eyes.

She's got your nose.

She's got your toes. Look!

Who has anyone's toes?

You were such a good baby.

You were always smiling about something.

Look at this.

I never could figure out what was so funny, but you were always smilin' about something or other.

You know, it never bothered you that we were poor.

It never bothered you that we were alone.

I worried about you so much growing up without a father.

I really don't think you missed him until you were older.

You know, until you... needed to ask questions about... you know, being a man.

There wasn't anybody there to ask.

Life goes in circles, you know.

Ginger's a good mother, Barry.

I want you to take care of that baby.

Did he know you were pregnant when he left?

Barry, if I tell you he knew, you'll make yourself crazy wondering why he left. If I say he didn't...

I just want to know.

I just want to know who I am.

Yeah.

Leaving behind a sperm doesn't make you a father.

Or a man... any more than one brick makes a house.

I know that.

You've built your own house now.

It's there, the circles.

Before you had Cornelia, did you know there was love like this in the whole wide world?

Mm-um.

Another guy said he pees out of his anus.

Now that's just bragging.

Sometimes you remind me of Joey from the first season of "Friends."

Was he awesome?

No. I mean, kind of.

I liked it. I liked him on that.

He was funny.

Were you really a virgin before our sex?

Did you think I was lying to you?

You don't remember that night at all?

That sucks.

Hey, why me?

I mean, that night, why... why with... with me?

M-most of my life, I think, you know, people never really paid much attention to me.

They kinda just forgot about me.

I mean, they would think like, "What's the point?"

Or they would just look at me and think, "Why bother?" You know?

And people I work with, my family, and, um, so...

I don't know, I found kind of a safety in that... like, that there was no judgment then.

No overt judgment.

You mean, you... you dress like this on purpose, and you know.

Well, I don't expect you to understand it, but there is kind of a... a power in being... undesirable.

But then I almost got in this car accident that day... the day of the night... and this guy yelled out his window...

Watch where you're going, you ugly bitch!

And, um, and it just took it all away, just that one sentence. And I just felt really... like an ugly bitch.

So, that night...

♪ Night will follow day... ♪

I just really needed to feel desirable.

Well, I’m glad he called you an ugly bitch.

Thanks, Barry.

He wanted you to handle it personally.

Yes. Thank you.

♪ And you need her and she needs you ♪

♪ And you need her... ♪ I impregnated one of the last random women I conquered before my testicles vanished from the face of this earth.

I never stopped to consider whether she would be a good mother for my child, or even whether I’d be able to sit in the same room with the woman after the sex act was complete.

And yet somehow, through this disconnected senselessness, I set in motion a chain reaction of happiness.

Now it's hard for me to believe I never would've chosen this life.

And I sometimes think of the days I was buried in my cave, feeling sorry for myself, Letting my hand drift between my legs to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

But I also remember getting that letter from Newton Creech and reading every word twice.

Before I could even think about it, before I could even poison the reaction, I was overjoyed... overjoyed at the idea of a new life, part of me somewhere in the world, waiting on the verge of possibility.

Barry, there you go. Thanks, sir.

I guess one man's burden can really be another man's happiness.

Let's go.

Sorry, sir. No problem.

Of course I still think it would be pretty rad to be an architect.

Or a triathlete.

Or a yoga instructor.
