A Thanksgiving Feast at the Inges'
TYLER INGE: Do you secretly hate Mommy?
BRANDON: Gosh, no, kids! Wow, your imaginations are out there! Haha…sigh. Well, boys, don’t fret. We’re not gonna be alone this Thanksgiving because some of Dad’s best buddies said they’d be stopping by! Heck, we’re gonna have a grand old time! Not like we can eat all this super grub ourselves!
CHASE: Uncle Sheff’s not coming, is he?
TYLER: He always asks us for money.
CHASE: And calls Mommy a stank ass ho.
TYLER: What’s a stank ass ho, Daddy?
BRANDON: Um, don’t worry about it. And no, Uncle Sheff won’t be coming. He hates Daddy because Daddy is still employed. No, some of our less fortunate friends that didn’t have anywhere else to go will be coming over. In fact, I think I hear a car door now! Be on your best behavior, kids!
