Lindsay: And you’re disappointed in me.
Michael: I’m not disappointed in you.
Lindsay: You are.
Michael: So I’m disappointed in you. But come on. What is not disappointing about my life? Dad didn’t give me the promotion. Dad’s in jail. How disappointing is that?
Lindsay: We’re a disappointing family.
Michael: We’re an incredibly disappointing family. But we are a family, and I want my son to be happy. So maybe we should be in each other’s lives.
Lindsay: I’d like that.
Michael: Yeah? Seriously, you’re gonna pull a muscle.
Lindsay: I used to be able to do this.
Narrator: So Michael decided to stay in California... and try to save the family business, and for the first time ever... he gathered his family together in the model home.
G.O.B.: Dad was always banker, so there was no beating him.
George Michael: He should’ve been stocking up on those “get out of jail free” cards.
G.O.B.: Good one, George Michael!
Michael: Very good.
Tobias: How are you?
George Michael: I wish you guys didn’t have to go so soon.
Michael: Oh, well, on that subject, these guys are actually gonna be staying with us. For a while. Just your aunt and her husband. Not G.O.B.
George Michael: Really?
Michael: Yeah. What the hell, huh? Family first. It is gonna be a little crowded, so you’re gonna have to share a room with your cousin.
